Huma Abedin doesn’t know how that stuff got on her husband’s computer. Not knowing how it got there may be as bad as it being there! This spin is dizzying, and perhaps that’s the point of spins.
Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin has told people she doesn’t know how her emails ended up on her estranged husband’s computer, according to The Washington Post.
Abedin says she did not regularly use the computer, the newspaper reported, citing a person familiar with the investigation.
David Mastio, tongue in cheek but only a little, is right:
Hillary Clinton can’t stand the thought of having to decide whether Winston Churchill’s bust should go back on the mantel of the Oval Office, so when the FBI exonerated her in the investigation into her secret email server cover-up, she doubled down on the lies, telling Fox News’ Chris Wallace, “Director Comey said my answers were truthful, and what I’ve said is consistent with what I have told the American people.”Every day it’s a race to prove who wants to be president the least.
I got an email from HillaryClinton.com in September asking for money. The subject line began, “If I am being honest …” When I saw it, I thought, “Oh for God’s sake, why start now?” If Clinton had started being honest five years ago or even one year ago, the American people would be carrying her to Washington on a flag-draped litter to install her in the White House while they sing old Methodist hymns.
But she didn’t. She won’t or can’t. The only reasonable explanation left is that she will do anything, absolutely anything, to make Donald Trump president. The question is what she and Vladimir Putin have to gain.
