Hillary Clinton roasted for The View charade, head scratching Trump comments

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is facing intense derision and mockery for obliviously stating that “no one is above the law.”

Speaking on “The View” this Wednesday alongside her daughter, Chelsea, in promotion of their new Netflix show, “Gutsy,” Clinton was asked by co-host Joy Behar whether or not she believes former President Donald Trump will be indicted over his alleged mishandling of allegedly classified documents.

She responded by saying that she refuses to prejudge Trump, which was fair, but then turned around and lectured the audience about the rule of law.

“I don’t know, and I don’t want to prejudge. I’ve been prejudged wrongly enough. I’m not going to prejudge somebody else. And so I think the key is what the facts and the evidence are. What the FBI and the intelligence community learn about these documents. How they ended up there. Who else saw them. Because apparently, they’ve been moved around. It’s not like they were in a vault,” she said.

“They were in a storage room where people go in and out getting umbrellas for the pool or, you know, something else. So I think that we have to wait and we have to have, I think, two minds about this. No one is above the law, and rule of law in a democracy, you know, has to be our standard. But we should not rush to judgment. We should take it seriously. We should be concerned about it. And we should follow the facts and the evidence,” she declared.

The total lack of self-awareness was too much for some critics to bear.

Clinton’s acts of malfeasance and corruption are too numerous to list but do include storing classified emails on an unsecured personal server, destroying digital evidence, engaging in pay-to-play schemes with foreign donors, and funding the Steele dossier.

The most notable of these acts of corruption is her own mishandling of hundreds of classified emails.

On July 5th, 2016, then-FBI Director James Comey announced that of the roughly 30,000 emails that Clinton had willingly handed over to the authorities — thousands more disappeared or were destroyed — over 100 contained classified materials.

“From the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the State Department, 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received,”  he said.

“Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification.”

Despite this blatant crime, she was ultimately not charged with anything by the Obama administration. And so, because she was let off the hook, she appears to view herself as a perfectly innocent angel versus a crook who herself is clearly above the law.

It helps that members of the media, including the co-hosts of “The View,” clearly have zero interest in conducting good faith fact-checks of her lies.

Take, for instance, this particularly jarring lie:

As noted by legal scholar Jonathan Turley, everything in the tweet above is “breathtakingly untrue.”

It’s like she’s trying to rewrite history.

“Hillary’s denial of what was found on her server exposes something far more serious than signature hypocrisy. It reflects establishment figures’ sense of license that they can literally rewrite history with little fear of contradiction by the media,” Turley wrote in an op-ed this Wednesday for the New York Post.

He continued by listing some of her other not-as-well-known violations of law, i.e., her perpetration of the “Clinton standard.”

“Many believe she used insider information from a friend at Tyson Foods to reap a huge windfall on cattle futures in the 1970s. No charge. Then there was Whitewater. Bill Clinton later pardoned Susan McDougal, who went to jail in connection to the fraudulent land scheme that involved both Clintons. For Hillary, no charge,” he wrote.

“Then there were the key long-sought Whitewater documents. After the case was effectively over, they suddenly appeared. The New York Times called the documents ‘elusive,’ as if they moved by free will. Investigators specifically sought those records, and Clinton’s team denied possession only for them to be found later outside her office. Sound familiar? No charge.”

The “Clinton standard,” he continued, is particularly pronounced in the emails case.

“Clinton’s staff unilaterally destroyed thousands of emails with BleachBit despite being aware in 2014 that Congress and the State Department were seeking the evidence. …. For a surprisingly long period, Clinton and her staff did not fully cooperate with investigators in refusing to turn over her emails and other evidence to State and DOJ investigators,” Turley explained.

“The FBI cut deals with her aides to secure their cooperation, and even then more classified material was found on the laptop of former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY), who was married to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin — 49,000 emails potentially relevant to the Clinton investigation. Again, no charges.”

And no questions either — neither from the talk show hosts at “The View” nor the so-called “journalists” who comprise the establishment media …
