Pssst, Kettle, it’s Pot! Democrats who didn’t care that former Obama Secretary of State Hillary Clinton mass-deleted 33,000 work-related emails are now demanding that senior Trump officials turn over all private emails to them by July 10.

It’s part of House Judiciary chairman Elijah Cummings‘ latest fishing expedition to dig up any evidence in search of a crime. The end goal, of course, is to impeach a sitting US president who has committed no impeachable offenses.

Cummings: Trump WH ignored previous requests

In a July 1 letter to WH counselor Pat Cipollone, Cummings said the House Judiciary Committee has expanded its investigation because the White House previously ignored its document-production requests.

“The White House’s complete obstruction of the committee’s investigation for the past six months is an affront to our Constitutional system of government,” Cummings wrote.

Cummings claimed that he had made an initial request for documents in December 2018, shortly before Democrats took control of the House of Representatives.

Dems: Ivanka used personal email account for govt-related work

The brouhaha erupted in November 2018 amid rumors that Ivanka Trump may have sent government-related emails using her personal email account. If true, it was a blunder by Ivanka.

Despite the media outrage, even the left-wing Washington Post report conceded that Ivanka’s emails did not contain any classified or sensitive government information.

Nevertheless, the incident is being used to attack the Trump White House, especially in light of President Trump’s justifiable criticisms over the Obama FBI’s mishandling of the Hillary Clinton email-server investigation.

You can’t compare Ivanka’s email situation to Hillary’s

In November, a White House rep explained why Ivanka’s email debacle is different from Hillary’s use of private, unsecured email servers in her home:

  • Ivanka did not create a private server in her house or office.
  • There was never classified information transmitted.
  • The account was never housed at the Trump Organization.
  • No emails were ever deleted.
  • The emails have been retained in the official account in conformity with records preservation laws.

Jim Jordan: Stop trying to impeach Trump with lame stunts

Congressman Jim Jordan, the top Republican on the House Judiciary committee, dismissed Elijah Cummings’ fishing expedition as yet another lame attempt to find a scintilla of evidence to impeach President Trump with.

A Jordan spokesman said: “[The Presidential Records Act] was not intended to create a fishing license for Chairman Cummings to pry into the private communications of the first family. This is yet another example of Democrats’ obsession with finding some rationale to impeach the President.”

Why hasn’t Hillary been prosecuted for endangering natl security?

In June, the State Department identified 30 instances of classified-intel mishandling involving 15 individuals connected to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized use of a private, unsecured email server.

“The Department has assessed culpability to 15 individuals, some of whom were culpable in multiple security incidents. DS has issued 23 violations and 7 infractions incidents under 12 FAM 550,” the report noted. “This number will likely change as the review progresses.”

2,100 classified emails passed through Hillary’s home servers

As BizPac Review reported, more than 2,100 classified emails passed through Hillary’s unsecured home email server. Of those, 22 were so top-secret they were deemed too classified to be released to the public.

While the left-wing media are foaming at the mouth over Ivanka’s emails and the Russia collusion hoax, they ignore how Hillary’s unsecured email servers compromised national security.

In May, newly uncovered FBI documents showed that there were multiple hacking attempts on Hillary’s private, unsecured email servers, which she used to conduct top-secret government business as Barack Obama’s Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013.

According to Hillary’s IT guy, her server rooms were often left totally unsecured. This left them vulnerable to hacking from enemies of the United States who want to access the nation’s top secrets on the U.S. Secretary of State’s home servers.
