Word to the wise: If you want to appear on Fox News’ “Outnumbered” and defend former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from renewed calls for her to be thoroughly investigated, it’s strongly recommended for your own safety that you abstain from trying to defend her by citing empty talking points.
Why? Because otherwise you might get verbally clobbered by occasional “Outnumbered” co-host Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery for being a shameless left-wing shill. Sadly for former banking executive and longtime Democrat donor Robert Wolf, he had to learn this lesson the hard way.
During a discussion on “Outnumbered” this Friday over a bombshell revelation that then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s Department of Justice had in 2016 ordered the FBI to not recommend charges for Clinton over her gross mishandling of classified information, Wolf argued that the issue should be put to rest and Clinton’s crimes simply forgotten/excused.
“Don’t you want to know what happened?” co-host Harris Faulkner asked, echoing those congressional Republicans who’ve called for a new investigation into Clinton. “What would be wrong with a foreign and wide look at what was going on with that top-secret server situation with Hillary Clinton?”
“Listen, I have no issue if the FBI and the Department of Justice feel that they have to investigate what happened with the servers while she was secretary of state, then they should do that,” Wolf replied. “To me it’s very yesterday’s news but I know that people here don’t think that.”
Uh oh …
“That’s a talking point,” Kennedy jumped in.
Democrats frequently push back against criticisms of Clinton’s misbehavior by citing her current lack of political relevancy. Recall that she lost the presidential election three years ago.

“No, I do think it’s yesterday’s news,” Wolf doubled down.
After a couple more rounds of this, Kennedy unleashed.
“It absolutely is [a talking point]!” she roared. “She didn’t win, therefore, we don’t need to investigate? That is not true. She was almost president of the United States, and all of the elements here that have gone awry are unacceptable.”
“I don’t care who is in office, I don’t care what office they were seeking. When you have the top people at the FBI who were told that they can’t look into this server for where the real crimes may have been committed, and we don’t know because the people who were in charge of extracting the emails that were thrown away were also acting as Hillary Clinton’s lawyers. They were also witnesses. They were also there at the FBI — “
“Let’s give Robert a chance to respond,” Faulkner interrupted to give Wolf a chance to speak.
“I know you like yelling and pointing at me, but …,” he began saying until he got steamrolled.
“This gets me so fired up because it’s wrong on all levels. McCabe was trying to shield her, Comey was trying to shield her because they thought they were getting jobs in her administration,” Kennedy said.
According to text messages reviewed by The Wall Street Journal last year, in 2016 then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe purposefully sat on incriminating information about Clinton for a month. As for Comey, he reportedly began drafting a statement exonerating Clinton months before the FBI had even concluded interviewing witnesses. It’s as if the fix was in.

Wolf eventually got his turn to speak Friday on “Outnumbered,” and not shockingly, he used it to make it clear how little he cares about Clinton’s litany of crimes:
“I need to just say what I said, because I think you didn’t hear. I said I have no issue if the FBI and Department of Justice takes it on. I said personally speaking — that’s just my opinion — I don’t really care about it. That’s all I said”
But plenty of folks do care, including South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham.
“Was there two systems of justice in 2016? One for the Democratic candidate and one for the Republican candidate?” he asked in a fiery speech on the Senate floor earlier this week.
It was a contrast between how the DOJ let Clinton off the hook and how the DOJ turned around and began a still-ongoing investigation into President Donald Trump over still-unproven allegations that he colluded with Russians to affect the outcome of the election.
“Any American out there who did what Secretary Clinton did, you’d be in jail now,” he added. “The question I want to know is, does anybody other than me believe that?”
Listen to some of his speech below:
It’s like there’s a two-tiered justice system in America. And clearly, this doesn’t sit well with either Kennedy or Graham, though Wolf clearly doesn’t care. FYI @ Wolf, a lot of Americans likewise don’t care for your nonchalant attitude over Clinton’s crimes:
@KennedyNation Girl ur on fire today👍 taking former Obama offical Wolf to task on O admin lawlessness via corrupt DOJ,FBI, rest of Clinton email crimes. By the way Deagan is relying on corrupt DOJ to investigate itself total failure. I believe military tribunal is only remedy✌

Too bad you don’t “care” about dishonesty in Clinton’s. Hypocrisy much?

You just said you don’t care! @HillaryClinton comprimized classified material! Ok, if it was a Republican! Would you still say you don’t care?

@robertwolf32 How does it feel to be verbally ‘face slapped’ by a Kennedy?
And you should care that Hillary – by all available evidence – committed a serious National Security violation.
