Democrats, Media Suddenly Very Concerned With Hillary’s Deleted Emails

Democrats and the media, but I repeat myself, have been telling us since the moment Hillary’s illegal server came to light that her emails were inconsequential. Much ado about nothing. A big fat nothingburger. And, heckaroonie, what’s the big deal that she deleted 30000+ emails about yoga and weddings and personal stuff, anyhow? Well, Trump made a statement this morning, which I was actually watching, and listening, and they’ve lost their minds. For instance, the NY Times

Donald J. Trump said Wednesday that he hoped Russia had hacked Hillary Clinton’s email, essentially encouraging an adversarial foreign power to cyberspy on a secretary of state’s correspondence.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Mr. Trump said, staring directly into the cameras during a news conference. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

Now comes the apoplexy in a news article

Mr. Trump’s call was an extraordinary moment at a time when Russia is being accused of meddling in the United States’ presidential election. His comments came amid questions about the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s computer servers, which American intelligence agencies have told the White House they have “high confidence” was the work of the Russian government.

There are all sorts of examples of this same thing, with Dems and their compliant media being Outraged!!!!!!

Lots of media folks and Dems were saying the same thing. Of course, they were lying. That is not what Trump said. But, hey, they have a Narrative. And you can expect there will be more Outrage in the opinion pages by tomorrow morning, and surely Outrage on CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, and CNN, among others.

But, here’s something interesting, per Sean Davis at The Federalist, who first notes this tweet from Team Hillary, echoing their press release

Davis writes

Sullivan did not explain how the e-mails, which Clinton said were about nothing more than her “yoga routines” and wedding planning for her daughter, could possibly pose a national security risk to the United States. Sullivan also failed to explain how unclassified e-mails “private personal e-mails” wholly unrelated to her work as Secretary of State — Clinton declared in an infamous 2015 press conference that she “did not email any classified material to anyone on my email” — could compromise American security.

If the emails are nothingburgers, then what national security is at stake?

    The New York Times has an article with the “highlights” of the press conference.

    On allegations of Russian computer hacking and Mrs. Clinton’s emails

    “By the way, they hacked — they probably have her 33,000 emails. I hope they do. They probably have her 33,000 emails that she lost and deleted because you’d see some beauties there. So let’s see.”

    “And that’s why — if it is Russia, nobody even knows this, it’s probably China, or it could be somebody sitting in his bed. But it shows how weak we are, it shows how disrespected we are. Total — assuming it’s Russia or China or one of the major countries and competitors, it’s a total sign of disrespect for our country. Putin and the leaders throughout the world have no respect for our country anymore and they certainly have no respect for our leader. So I know nothing about it. It’s one of the most far-fetched I’ve ever heard.”

    On Mr. Putin and Russia’s alleged hacking of the Democratic National Committee email system

    “Why do I have to get involved with Putin? I have nothing to do with Putin. I’ve never spoken to him. I don’t know anything about him other than he will respect me. He doesn’t respect our president. And if it is Russia — which it’s probably not, nobody knows who it is — but if it is Russia, it’s really bad for a different reason, because it shows how little respect they have for our country, when they would hack into a major party and get everything. But it would be interesting to see — I will tell you this — Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press. Let’s see if that happens. That’ll be next. Yes, sir.”

    On asking Russia to hack servers in the United States

    “No, it gives me no pause. If they have them, they have them. We might as well — hey, you know what gives me more pause? That a person in our government, crooked Hillary Clinton — here’s what gives me pause. Be quiet. I know you want to save her. That a person in our government, Katy, would delete or get rid of 33,000 emails. That gives me a big problem. After she gets a subpoena! She gets subpoenaed, and she gets rid of 33,000 emails? That gives me a problem. Now, if Russia or China or any other country has those emails, I mean, to be honest with you, I’d love to see them.”

    The actual quotes don’t back up the Times’ reporters / article.

    Color me shocked.

  2. Jeffery says:

    The anti-American comrade Trumpski (R-Moscow) said:

    “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing.”

    Gov. Mike Pence (R-IN), said:

    “If it is Russia and they are interfering in our elections, I can assure you both parties and the United States government will ensure there are serious consequences.”

    It’s now clear that Comrade Trumpski’s hidden tax returns shows more than just the $14 million he received from Russia.

  3. Jeffery says:

    What kind of lucrative deal has Crooked Donald hatched with Russian strongman Putin? How much does Crooked Donald stand to make from the Russian mob by weakening NATO?

    Does Traitorous Donald have information that the Russian intelligence services has US information in their possession that Traitorous Donald can use against his political opponent?

    “Businessmen” such as Crooked Donald are only concerned with winning – defined as how much money they can gouge out of others. “Businessmen” such as Crooked Donald will steal lunch money from children to prove how “powerful” they are. It’s all about the perception of “winning.”

    Crooked Donald can not be trusted. He hates Secretary Clinton more than he loves America. Shameful performance by Traitorous Donald.

    Democrats, Media Suddenly Very Concerned With Hillary’s Deleted Emails

    No, people are Suddenly Very Concerned with Trumpki’s ties to the Russians.

  5. Jl says:

    Saw this from Jim Geraghty. 1) There was nothing secret in HRC’s deleted emails. 2) It’s a “national security issue” if Russia gets them. Pick one, Hillary camp. It’s easy to make a point without being a Drama Queen, J. For most people

  6. drowningpuppies says:

    It’s kinda fun reading the little guy’s conspiracy theories.

  7. Jeffery says:

    It’s not about emails, it’s about the Republican candidate’s potential treason.

    The increasingly unstable Trumpski encouraged a rogue nation to commit crimes against an American citizen, in support of Trumpski’s candidacy. Unprecedented.

  8. gitarcarver says:

    No, people are Suddenly Very Concerned with Trumpki’s ties to the Russians.

    As opposed to Clinton’s ties to the Chinese?

    If the Russians have the email, why are the Clintons and the liberals panicking?

    Could those emails have exactly what Clinton said they did not?

    This is what you get when you get people like Clinton who think they are above the law and people on the left that support her not matter what.

    (Also notice how Jeffery tries and fails to deflect from the illogical position that the emails are not a worry but if they are released they are a threat.)

    • John says:

      No foreign government should be interfering with our elections
      If you can’t see that you are blind

  9. drowningpuppies says:

    It’s not about emails,

    Stop it, you’re killing me.

  10. drowningpuppies says:

    You know what else is funny?

    Trump is really, really good at using the state media against itself because this is where a substantial portion of LIVs find out that Hillary’s emails were hacked by Russia.

  11. Jeffery says:

    More reading comprehension problems from the Covian peanut gallery.

    It’s not about the emails. It’s about the mentally unstable Trumpski’s ties to Russia. By all means release all 30,000 comrade Trumpski.

    He received $14 million from Russia in connection with the Miss Universe pageant. How much more will he receive by weakening NATO? $14 billion?

    The treasonous Trumpski doesn’t put America first. Never has, never will. But the far-right doesn’t care as long as their beloved tyrant harasses the “right” people – liberals, Blacks, intellecuals, Latinos, gays, Muslims, Jews etc – in fact all non-white, non-fundies.

  12. John says:

    You don’t ask for a hostile foreign government to intervene in USA elections
    Never mind the Dems reaction Teach look atvwhatvthe GOP is saying about it

  13. Jeffery says:

    Trumpski’s most prominent endorsements are from murderous dictators Putin, Kim Jung-un, two tyrants he admires.

    No wonder the Covians adore him.

  14. drowningpuppies says:


    Could those emails have exactly what Clinton said they did not?

    Bingo!

    Thus, the panic…

  15. Jeffery says:

    Trumpski persuaded the Platform Committee to soften their language backing the Ukraine’s defenses against Putin.

    What nation does Trumpski support?

  16. Jeffery says:

    Trumpski advocates torture.

    Trumpski advocates killing the families/children of terrorists.

    Trumpski supports Russia and North Korea over America.

    Trumpski advocates Russian spying on US citizens.

    Trumpski advocates religious discrimination.

    Trumpski hates America.

  17. gitarcarver says:

    Isn’t it fun watching Jeffery and John go apoplectic while supporting the criminal Hillary?

    The Dems are falling apart over the emails because of what they might show Hillary did. It would also blow her story of nothing classified and how secure her server was.

    So instead of dealing with reality, they go after Trump who is asking NATO nations to pay their fair share (by treaty.)

    Isn’t it funny that “fair share” only matters to liberals when it comes to taking other people’s money and when they try to make a candidate look bad?

    Hillary broke the law and you guys support her.

    Trump wonders if the Russians have the emails Hillary deleted and you attack him.

  18. gitarcarver says:

    Trumpski advocates torture.

    Trumpski advocates killing the families/children of terrorists.

    Trumpski supports Russia and North Korea over America.

    Trumpski advocates Russian spying on US citizens.

    Trumpski hates America.

    Its so funny when the children act out.

  19. Jeffery says:

    Dumbasses. The FBI has the emails.

    The Dems are not very concerned about the emails; they are very concerned about Trumpski’s embrace of a nation opposed to America; they are very concerned about Trumpski’s advocating a foreign nation to attack to US citizens.

    Trumpski is mentally unstable.

  20. Jeffery says:

    The Trumpski Machine is conflating the DNC hack and the invented furor over 33,000 “missing” emails that the FBI says are not missing.

    All the while, far-fight traitors ignore that their the Great White Father is playing footsies with Putin and the Russian oligarchs, interjecting his own greed between America and her relationships with foreign governments.

    Why must the far-right lie and lie and lie?

  21. Jeffery says:

    Isn’t it funny watching gitarcarver and the Littles defend the traitor Trumpski?

  22. Liam Thomas says:

    @Jeffery

    Excellent Saul alinsky tactics there mr. commie.

    However Trump is going to be your new president. You get to endure what the right has had to endure for the last 8 years.

    An Absolute MORON IN OFFICE.

    Why you ask?

    Because I was watching some interesting interviews last night and a HUGE majority of Bernie Sanders are going to VOTE FOR THE GREENS PARTY CANDIDATE.

    Essentially gutting Hillary like Ross Perot Gutted Bush and handed the election to Clinton in 92.

    Trump wont win because hes the best candidate….he will win because the DNC proved how fuking crooked ALL POLITICIANS are and the only difference this time around is that the GOP has had their BERNIE SANDERS MOMENT IN 2012…..

    YOUR HAVING YOURS NOW.

  23. Jl says:

    What’s even funnier is that president Bill Clinton signed a treaty with Russia in 2000 obligating that Russia help us in criminal matters (Hillary Clinton)and vice-verse. Which is why Trump asked that they turn the emails over to the FBI. Trump has masterfully played the media again

  24. drowningpuppies says:

    On a day when the media should be fawning over how great and historic the Hag is, again Trump uses the media to take the spotlight off of her and dominate the news cycle.

    And the little guy who exaggerates often is literally shitting himself.

  25. Jl says:

    “The Republican candidates potential treason..” They already had the emails, genius. How do they have the emails? Totally due 100% to Hillary’s incompetence, which would put the treason on her. But Hillary first said the emails have no national security issues. But now they do? So she was lying, which is perjury. She’s fucked either way

  26. drowningpuppies says:

    Hillary first said the emails have no national security issues. But now they do? So she was lying, which is perjury. She’s fucked either way.

    Kinda like Bill and the blue dress.

  27. gitarcarver says:

    Dumbasses. The FBI has the emails.

    Now Jeffery has to lie. (Or rather he starts to lie again.)

    Poor Jeffery likes to cite FBI Director as the final word in Hillary’s criminal activities, but Jeffery conveniently forgets that at the press conference, Comey said that the FBI was still missing work related emails and they were not recovered.

    Caught in another lie, Jeffery will now attack others for his lack of morals.

  28. Jeffery says:

    gitty and the Littles lie again (and again).

  29. Dana says:

    John wrote:

    No foreign government should be interfering with our elections
    If you can’t see that you are blind

    And I’m sure you said the same thing when the President of Mexico said that Hell, no, Mexico won’t pay for Mr Trump’s wall.

  30. Dana says:

    Jeffrey is apoplectic!

    What kind of lucrative deal has Crooked Donald hatched with Russian strongman Putin? How much does Crooked Donald stand to make from the Russian mob by weakening NATO?

    Does Traitorous Donald have information that the Russian intelligence services has US information in their possession that Traitorous Donald can use against his political opponent?

    Mr Trump already has more money than he’ll ever need; he doesn’t have to do crooked stuff to get more.

    What the left don’t want is for solid information to come out that Russia, or any other foreign government, was able to hack into Hillary Clinton’s private server. Then we go from she was sloppy and careless to she actually endangered national security. It isn’t a case of Mr Trump needed the specific information, but simply the knowledge that the Russians were able to get the information.

    And it would be interesting to see the reaction of the left were it disclosed that the 30,000 deleted e-mails weren’t all wedding plans and cookie recipes, but classified information. That would simply confirm what even Jeffrey already knows, that Mrs Clinton is a lying scumbag.

    But Jeffrey would still vote for her lying ass. We could have Mrs Clinton, on tape, putting a bullet into Ambassador Chris Smith’s head, and the left would still vote for her.

  31. Hank_M says:

    Good lord the left is so stupid.

    As our host stated, “If the emails are nothingburgers, then what national security is at stake?”

    As for our resident idiot, writing that it’s not about the emails….The stupid is strong with this.

  32. Jeffery says:

    dana,

    Trump already has more money than he’ll ever need

    You don’t understand what motivates “businessmen” such as Crooked Donald and his ilk. Their money is a measure of his “value” as a man. Mo’ money means mo’ manhood. That’s why he lies about how much money he has and is one reason he refuses to release his tax returns. It’s why he hates the genuinely self-made Bloomberg, who is at least 10 times richer than Crooked Donald, and made his money by actually developing and selling a product, not by taking advantage his daddy’s money and “working” bankruptcy laws.

    It was Crooked Donald who said he “could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and not lose any voters.” He was referring to dana.

    If Secretary Clinton had shot someone in the head, she would be in prison and not a candidate, and I would vote for another Democratic candidate. I will vote for anyone but Trump.

    And why does Putin want Crooked Donald to be the US President? Why did Putin and Crooked Donald

    What if…

    What if Crooked Donald (with his billionaire buddy, the pedophile Epstein) did rape that 13 yr old girl 4 times in 1994 as she and her friend claim in lawsuit filed in NY?

    What if Crooked Donald has millions in business deals with Russian oligarchs as is now suggested?

    What if Crooked Donald does have a quid pro quo with Putin regarding NATO as is now suggested?

    What if Crooked Donald hasn’t paid taxes in years?

    What if Crooked Donald has ties to the NY and NJ mob. What if this fact becomes widely known?

    What ifCrooked Trump University has been shown to be a scam.

    What if Crooked Donald’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, is paid by a Russian oligarch.

    What ifCrooked Donald removed the strong language from the platform condemning Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

    What if the national press actually does its job and investigates Crooked Donald and his business deals with the NY/NJ mob and with the Russian mob?

    What if Crooked Donald is a transnational citizen with no real love of America?

    What if Crooked Donald works for Putin and not American citizens?

  33. Hoagie says:

    Wow Jeffery, you really freaked out in that last comment. Are you okay? I could almost see the spittle spraying from your mouth, the gobs of saliva forming at the corners of your lips and a face as red as a fire engine. Calm down. One more phony “what if” and you’d have popped a circuit. You know Hillary! is nothing but a lying, commie grifter but that’s what makes her so attractive to you.

    And we also noticed before the DNC admitted it that there wasn’t one uniformed cop on the convention floor. No room for police among a room full of criminals. That was a smart move. I’d hate to see one of your lovely, kind, compassionate BLM folks end up in a kerfuffle with a Philly cop. Bad optics and all that. So the first day of the convention you democrat commies had no American flags and for the rest no police. Wow. What a party for the American people! I think the entire demoncrat party has slipped into a rut of pathological lying, dysfunction and projection. Good luck with that. BTW, Trump now leads by 7.8%. Buh bye.

  34. Jeffery says:

    Hoagie,

    I guess the DNC didn’t see the need for police amongst their peaceful gathering.

    Note it’s the GOP advocating and supporting a police state.

    Much of Crooked Donald’s business empire is funded by the Russians. Why is he so protective of Russia?

    Hillary is nothing but a lying, commie grifter

    Not according to the FBI and her tax returns.

    Why won’t Crooked Donald release his tax returns?

  35. Hoagie says:

    I know Jeffery. Yell squirrel once more. Here’s your party:

  36. Hank_M says:

    USA Today headline: “As Obama speaks, chaos and arrests outside DNC”.

  37. gitarcarver says:

    Not according to the FBI and her tax returns.

    The FBI said that Hillary broke the law, but was not worth prosecuting.

    Audits of the CGI Foundation show that less than 10% of the money donated goes to actual projects.

    Clinton won’t say how much she took from speeches to bankers. Bill and Hillary took money form the Chinese.

    Democrats want people to look away from the corrupt Clintons because given an objective standard, the Clintons are scum.

  38. john says:

    Apparently not just Dems Bush’s former Head of the NSA and CIA also had major problems with asking Russia to hack for Trump https://www.buzzfeed.com/andrewkaczynski/former-bush-nsa-cia-chief-trump-russia-comment-an-incredibly?utm_term=.aqPq4VaaoL#.qvvdrKAAek
    Having a GOP nominee ask a hostile foreign power to help him get elected is tantamount to treason

    Luckily that’s not what happened john.

    Once again you are simply showing your tremendous ignorance and inability to read.

    Tell us, why are you happy with Hillary selling out to the Chinese, but think that emails are treason?

  41. Liam Thomas says:

    Its actually sad how much Jeffery is so deluded into voting for anybody but Trump because he is so FEARFUL of Trump.

    Yet the Democratic left are the biggest fear mongers on the planet….in fact their entire platform is based on FEAR TRUMP….

    NOT SAVE THE POOR or help the middle class….

    Oh sure they have those things in their platform but all they can talk about is how FEARFUL Donald Trump and the RIGHT ARE….

    How if we elect a GOP to the White HOuse we will be lining up Muslims and putting them in the furnaces……..lolololol…….

    Quite the scenario their of Jeffery painting a Transparent Donald Trump and his business dealings as evil……when Hillary’s are all done in secret, behind closed doors and are every bit as evil….

    The only difference is real evil people do real evil things in the Dark on the night in back alleys and dark rooms…..

    People like trump use the LAWS that the DEMS profess to LOVE and put their business dealings out there for everyone to see…..

    Fear mongers? Yeah that has always been the LEFT……they have this bizarre irrational fear that the only thing all us every day citizens do is sit around figuring new ways to make all the Democratic BILLIONAIRS MORE MONEY by cutting their taxes………

    it would be comical is not so delusional.

  42. Hoagie says:

    Hoagie wants all the hot trannys in the mens room

    Look John, a squirrel. Exactly where did I say that? Are you lying again, John?
    You leftists need to learn to make a valid point without lies and exaggerations. It would add gravitas to your argument.
