Politico’s Dylan Byers has the story of how Hillary’s people leaned on the New York Times to change headlines and key reporting in an important story on how two separate Inspectors General had called upon the Department of Justice to investigate Hillary’s private email server and the missing emails.
I wrote in The Queen that the former Secretary of State’s reckless endangerment of the national security by the creation and use of an easily-compromised-by-our-enemies private email system would be potentially campaign-derailing revelation. I also wrote that her allies in the MSM would do what they could to protect her. I wrote even more on how this would play out next fall, but you will have to read the book to see how that final act concludes.
Every would-be GOP nominee should become very familiar with the facts of Hillary’s server, have internet security experts on stand-by to back-up the charge about the obvious compromise of national security involved in the operation of the system, and legal experts at hand to explain why the “wipe-down” of the emails was both criminal and ineffective. The would-be nominees will have to make those charges and defend them –the very engaged electorate will not accept a hands-off policy on a central issue going both to Mrs. Clinton’s character and her judgment. Voters on the center-right will not accept the MSM-enabled cover-up and as with a host of other stories, will know the details of the server and the cover-up. They will simply watch to see which candidates among the GOP field possess the courage to face down MSM charges of “scandal-mongering” and “here we go again” which are always raised in defense of the Clintons, sometimes prospectively, as Byers outlines today.
