A CNN panel was busy fretting over Hillary Clinton’s web of deceit that is beginning to unravel along the presidential campaign trail.
The discussion revolved around the FBI report released Friday that revealed Clinton had used 13 devices for correspondence and had used the term “do not recall” 39 times in three hours in response to questions.
It is believed that Clinton used the devices to access her private email, and at least eight of those devices were used while she served as Secretary of State.
“The other thing we know about the Clintons is that they’ve been through many investigations, many scandals and many situations in which a smart lawyer will say to a client, you know, you don’t have to answer that fully and if you don’t recall, you don’t recall,” Washington Post’s Dan Balz said.
John King admitted the report solidifies what the public already knows.
“If you think she is dishonest, if you think she is untrustworthy, the cement hardens,” he said. “If you’re for her, you sort of roll your eyes and say I’ve got to deal with this.”
The rest of the panel agreed, although reporter Abby Phillip tried to exonerate Clinton of any criminal activity.
“There’s a difference between something that’s not criminal and something that’s still unacceptable to people,” she said. “There was still quite a bit that was unacceptable and surprising and shocking to a lot of voters. I think this will matter because it really, I think, for people, it sort of defies their common sense test and that’s a problem.”
Yes, common sense still does exist in certain circles and Hillary is pushing the limits to say the least.
In the end, this all bodes well for Trump, who is not afraid to call out Clinton for her repeated dishonesty.
“The one message he has really been able to alight on is Hillary Clinton being dishonest, being untrustworthy,” reporter Ashley Parker said.
The panel did not discuss part of the report where aides were said to have destroyed the devices with a hammer.
