Just Sayin’….

AF Branco at Comically Incorrect weighs in on the Wednesday night CNBC GOP debate:

Moderators-600-LI

Also yesterday, there was another document dump of emails from the illegal Clinton server:

The new release of Clinton emails — the largest batch of messages made public since State began posting the messages online to comply with a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit — revealed more about Clinton’s knowledge of embassy security issues and provided a window into lighter moments like Clinton being instructed in the use of emojis.

Friday’s document release is the sixth of its kind and with it, more than half of the messages Clinton turned over to the agency from her private email account and server have now been made public. In the new batch, State deemed 268 emails classified at the lowest classification tier, according to spokesman John Kirby, who said that none of these emails “were marked classified at the time they were sent or received.” There are now between 600 and 700 emails newly marked as classified since the releases began in May.

Interestingly, some of the emails went to the White House and to President Obama.

President Barack Obama found himself drawn into Hillary Clinton’s email controversy Friday as the White House acknowledged the State Department is withholding a set of messages Obama and Clinton exchanged during her four years as secretary of state.

As the State Department made public a new batch of more than 7,200 pages of Clinton’s emails, officials stressed that the White House was not asserting executive privilege over the Obama-Clinton exchanges but insisting that they be treated as presidential records, which are normally not available to the public until between five and 12 years after a president leaves office.

The emails to the President resulted in the White House claiming the emails are protected by a normal withholding of Presidential documents and then saying that Clinton was responsible for the security of the emails as they were on and went through her server.

The administration cannot have it both ways. Either Obama wants to claim responsibility and ownership of the email or they can dump it on Clinton. They cannot do both.

Well, of course they can do both and will do both because “the most transparent administration ever” is not.
