If you want to know how fast Hillary Clinton is sinking, look at her campaign manager, Robby Mook. Last week, he was unable to answer questions about Clinton’s Syria policy, which prompted members of a MSNBC panel to say, “you can’t lay out your plan, how can you convince voters that Hillary Clinton is the better choice, Robby?” And “why do we have you here?”
In an interview with CNN anchor Jake Tapper, he confronted Mook on Sunday over an IT worker handling her private email server joking in a 2014 email about a “Hillary cover-up operation,” with Mook dodging the question and blaming Republicans for “selectively leaking documents” to make Hillary look bad.
According to Breitbart, the FBI dumped another 189 pages of documents pertaining to Clinton’s use of an unsecured private server during her time as Secretary of State online Friday, with one note about a “coverup” raising eyebrows:
After reviewing an email dated December 11, 2014 with the subject line ‘RE: 2 items for IT support,’ and a December 12, 2014 work ticket referencing email retention changes and archive/email cleanup, [redacted] stated his reference in the email to ‘…the Hilary [sic] coverup [sic] operation…’ was probably due to the requested change to a 60 day email retention policy and the comment was a joke.
The Trump campaign quickly leapt on the FBI’s findings.
“The fact an IT staffer maintaining Clinton’s secret server called a new retention policy designed to delete emails after 60 days a ‘Hillary coverup operation’ suggests there was a concerted effort to systematically destroy potentially incriminating information. It’s no wonder that at least five individuals tied to the email scandal, including Clinton’s top State Department aide and attorney Cheryl Mills, secured immunity deals from the Obama Justice Department to avoid prosecution,” said Trump spokesman Jason Miller in a statement on Friday.
Comey told the House Oversight Committee on July 7 that the FBI “did not find evidence sufficient to establish that she knew she was sending classified information beyond a reasonable doubt to meet that — the intent standard” while claiming that prosecuting Clinton for gross negligence would perpetuate a “double standard.”
