    The Rethuglicans just won't give up .....

    The Washington Post this morning reported that State Department investigators have spoken to as many as 130 people in recent weeks, including senior officials who reported directly to Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state, as well as others whose emails were at some point relayed to her inbox, according to current and former officials.

    The origin of this "pissing match" likely began in March, when House Democrats started pressing the White House to turn over information and documents related to an investigation into whether some of President Trump's advisers, including daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, violated federal records law, threatening to take "alternative means" if the administration does not comply.

    In a letter addressed to White House counsel Pat Cipollone , House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Maryland, said the couple's attorney acknowledged they used personal email accounts to conduct official government business, with Kushner also communicating on the encrypted messaging app WhatsApp. The attorney, Abbe Lowell, disputed portions of Cummings' account in a subsequent letter Thursday afternoon.

    Cummings said the administration has not provided the panel with a "single piece of paper" since he requested a batch of records — as well as a briefing by White House officials — last December.

    NUTS, why don't we dig up what Reagan or the Bush family did; how about all our stupid wars (started by Republicans) and what did those cost.

    But anyway that will keep them from digging in other stupid things; but yeah knowing them lets dig into Benghazi again!

    Is there anything "normal" in this country? No, not until they make proper "laws" for Presidents and their "buddies"

    I wrote about that a million times, but I guess they all are "deaf and dumb" here.

    Schmidt:

    I just re-read Hillary's letter that you posted on 11/9/2016. In my opinion, she would have been one of our better presidents. I actually know people who think that there was no difference between Trump and Hillary, which I think is absolute nonsense. Unfortunately, there actually WERE a lot of those people.

    One of our relatives did not like either candidate, so he wrote in "Mickey Mouse" as his choice for president. There were enough people like him in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Ohio that Trump prevailed in those states (by narrow margins) that Trump got elected.

    I never understood the hatred towards Hillary Clinton, but I think much of it has to do with the constant right wing attacks on her...from Benghazi to the e-mails. And of course, Bernie and Jill Stein supporters. They learned to hate her too. And now more investigations? Sheesh...attacking her continuously seems to excite Trump's base. "Lock her up!" They probably have an orgasm just thinking about it.

    In any case, she is an accomplished woman, extremely intelligent, and had plans for most everything, much the same as Elizabeth Warren, except Hillary's were less radical...not that different from Joe Biden's. I was one of the few that studied her proposals in HillaryClinton.com. That's the main reason I supported her.

    For example, take a look at her plan to combat Climate Change in 2016. "She will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 30 percent in 2025 relative to 2005 levels and put the country on a path to cut emissions more than 80 percent by 2050."

    These targets are more modest than the more recent New Green Deal, but probably more achievable.

    Overall, she was not treated fairly by the media during the 2016 election. The mainstream media was more focused on ratings, and Trump's outrageousness delivered ratings to them big time. He got so much free air time by being an entertainer rather than an accomplished candidate qualified to hold the top office in the land. He's a con artist. And at the same time, every one of Hillary's faults was magnified over and over again, trying to sensationalize something without traction.

    There are multiple reasons Hillary lost, and as close as the race was, people can point the finger at any number of factors to find fault. I don't dispute that. But I still believe that she was the most qualified person in a long time to run for president. The voters just didn't know it. Emotions trumped critical thinking.

    Hillary Clinton remains a class act.

    Schmidt the DNC it self ruined her chances; like the Wasserman woman and others. The other thing was "being arrogant" as an part of the Washington culture of that time. States like Ohio, Michigan etc. were kind of too low life for her and the DNC. Her arrogance made her loose, as well not understanding how the "mob" works and she should have studied Trumps "mob background" and KKK family.

    At one of the " qualifications discussions" Trump "shoveled" his fat posture just behind her to annoy her, but she let him.

    That was the end of her.
