Hillary Clinton Wanted to Hide Her Emails

On March 2nd the NY Times reported that during her time as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton used her personal email account to conduct State Dept business. Right off the bat this just didn’t sound right, I mean the idea of Clinton sending emails to her foreigner counterparts from a Gmail account just seemed absurd.

This is not illegal, but it’s suspicious to me that a high-ranking official in the State Dept would conduct business via personal email. Clinton’s predecessors, Colin Powell and possibly Condoleezza Rice (rarely used email) also used personal email from time to time.

What makes Clinton’s case a lil more suspicious than others is that she (or her people) registered the domain ClintonEmail.com (HDR22@ClintonEmail.com)

 to send her State Dept emails.

The way I look at this, Clinton did as much as possible to make it difficult to review her emails concerning State Dept business. And she did this knowing that she would be running for president in 2016. What could possibly be the reason for Clinton or any Secretary of State to avoid using the government email system?

If I decided to start using my Gmail account at work to contact vendors and discuss business, I am more than likely trying to cover-up something. Compliance would be on my ass trying to figure out why I was doing this as this would be a security concern as well as an audit issue.

There’s no defense of Hillary Clinton on this, and Democrats need to recognize this. This doesn’t necessarily validate Benghazi conspiracy theorist, but she should answer questions on this. She needs to be upfront about the rationale of using her personal email and put this story to bed!

The Mitt Romney Documentary

“Mitt”, the documentary released on Netflix was supposed to be a look at Mitt Romney behind the scenes of the 2008 and 2012 campaigns. While you get an interesting look into Mitt leading the into debates against President Obama, there is not a whole lot the documentary offers you into who Mitt Romney really is.

There was a couple of interesting moments between Mitt and his inner circle (family) before and after debates. You get a glimpse inside the Romney camp after the 1st debate, where their confidence was sky-high. The 2nd debate it falls apart for Team Romney, the confusion about concerning Benghazi and whether or not the president called it an act of terror the next day in the Rose Garden; seemed to shake Romney up after the debate.

Other than that no other interesting parts as you have a brief moment of Mitt discussing taxes and the burden on small business, but that’s it. No real insight into the 47% blunder or any other major moments on the campaign trail.

I will say that the Mitt Romney in this documentary is the Mitt that should have been seen on the campaign trail. The Mitt in the documentary was a lot more real than the Mitt campaigning.
