To those of us who have followed the ongoing Clinton Saga, which now reaches back almost twenty-five years, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s computer server promises to become as historic as Monica Lewinsky’s stained dress. That is to say, that her server may indeed become as significant to her presidential prospects as Monica’s dress was to Bill’s prospects for impeachment.
It is now apparent to fact finders across the nation that some of Hillary’s e-mails—thousands of which have been saved on her personal server—show that she lied to the American people as surely as Monica’s dress proved that Bill lied to the American people and to the grand jury when he denied having sex “with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” Would it not be fitting that at the end of the Clinton Saga a dusty old server and a tired old dress go on display in the penultimate room of “The Clinton Museum and Souvenir Shop” down in jerkwater? Beyond that room comes the basement, featuring the words “They Lied to Us.”
What the server’s e-mails indicate is that on the night that four Americans were murdered in Benghazi, Hillary e-mailed the truth of how they died to her daughter. She told Chelsea that the Americans were the victims of an organized terrorist attack. She later admitted that to the Egyptian prime minister also. Nonetheless she signed a public statement from the State Department proclaiming that the Americans were the victims of a riot provoked by a YouTube video. After lying to the American people the evening of the attack, she repeated the lie to the victims’ relatives when their bodies were flown in to Joint Base Andrews. Moreover, she stood by her false account when she testified to the House Select Committee.
There are other untruths that have been passed on from Hillary’s server. She has lied about arranging lecture fees from her State Department office for the gifted Bill Clinton. There are lies about arranging donations for her family foundation, her forthcoming political campaign, and her own speaking fees. There are lies on the topic of influence pedaling and on whom she kept in contact with. It must rankle President Barack Obama that she communicated with Sidney Blumenthal from her office after the President specifically asked that she not. And of course there are questions about what manner of classified information she kept on her personal server. This is being scrutinized even now by the FBI. In point of fact, Hillary’s server may become even more historic than Monica’s dress.
