Yeah, we know it’s not news anymore when Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton plays fast and loose with the truth. (And yeah, we know, we still can’t help but point out her steady stream of lies anyway.)
But when Mrs. Clinton is actually caught so boldly — and immediately — in such a blatant, massive lie, THAT is newsworthy.
As The Blaze reports:
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, released its March 4 subpoena of Hillary Clinton on Wednesday after the former secretary of state claimed on CNN that she “never had a subpoena.”
“The committee has issued several subpoenas, but I have not sought to make them public,” Gowdy said in a statement. “I would not make this one public now, but after Secretary Clinton falsely claimed the committee did not subpoena her, I have no choice in order to correct the inaccuracy.”
GO Rep. Gowdy!!!
Gowdy argued the Benghazi committee “immediately subpoenaed Clinton personally after learning the full extent of her unusual email arrangement with herself” and “would have done so earlier if the State Department or Clinton had been forthcoming that State did not maintain custody of her records and only Secretary Clinton herself had her records when Congress first requested them.”
During the first national TV interview of her 2016 presidential campaign, Clinton accused her interviewer of making “so many assumptions” about her private email controversy and defended her handling of emails during her tenure at the State Department. You can watch her comments in full context here.
“I’ve never had a subpoena,” she added. “There’s nothing, again. Let’s take a deep breath here. Everything I did was permitted by law and regulation.”
Actually, given what’s just been released, I think Mrs. Clinton’s the one who needs to take deep breath here. Here is that “nothing” of which she speaks, in black-and-white, folks:
Now that this is out on the table, the big question is how will this impact Mrs. Clinton’s poll numbers? As has been widely reported, honesty and trust have not been Mrs. Clinton’s strong suit, to say the least. I actually had to laugh out loud hearing her proclaim, in the same CNN interview, that “people should and do trust me.” LMAO!
In her defense, however, history has shown that if she simply SAYS it, many people will believe it, despite factual evidence to the contrary. That’s probably why, to date, Mrs. Clinton continues to lead in the polls.
When will the lemmings who continue to blindly support Mrs. Clinton — despite such a complete lack of integrity that grows more and more undeniable every day — wake up and say enough is enough? How about instead of choosing a leader based on gender, color or last name, we go for choosing one with integrity and principles?
