Drip. Drip. Drip.

I'm an unabashed Bernie supporter but I tire of the conservatively-contrived hullabaloo concerning Hillary's emails. Reddit user Jollywombat had a sensible take on the situtation so I thought I'd share it with you. Take it way, Jolly!

Q: Was it illegal/criminal for the Secretary of State to conduct all her professional communications on a private email server and not on a government server?

A: Ask Colin Powell who also never conducted his business as Secretary of State on a government server. Was he charged with anything? He also deleted everything he had on those accounts. Still no charge.

Q: Did she send classified information, knowingly or unknowingly, through this private email server?

A: The secretary of state was vested with the power to declassify any document she chooses. I'm not even kidding, you can't accuse the secretary of state of this, it's nonsensical.

Q: Why did she delete over 30,000 emails from her private server?

A: She deleted private e-mails. That's all there is to it. And it wasn't her, so much as her high qualified and quite expensive and well known legal advisors, who poured through all her e-mails, sorted out the ones that were personal, and passed everything else along to the government. Their reputation, besides Hillary's is on the line as to the extent that they were honest about the separation.

But then again, there's no reason for them to not have been honest, because if Hillary really wanted to do something evil she could have just used a 20minute e-mail or made a phone call, not used her government-monitored email account and then gone, oh shit, I forgot, I better delete all this evidence. That's just a bizarre story cooked up by Republicans who have gone way too far in regards to climbing up her asshole over Benghazi and have only one option left: make it look like she's hiding something behind her right to privacy.

Long story short: If Hillary wasn't running for president there would be no hearings, no investigation.
