A recent article on dailymail.co.uk has found that Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has just been given a “Four Pinnochios” rating for an incorrect claim that FBI Director James Comey had been telling the truth about her emails.
This rating is given by the Washington Post and represents “the worst possible score for truthfulness.” Clinton received the rating after a statement she made on Sunday claiming that the FBI was in fact being truthful in defending her honesty as part of the ongoing probe into her emails.
This investigation has now been affecting her campaign for over a year.
On July 7, James Comey presented his testimony before a Congressional hearing saying that “multiple statements the Democratic presidential nominee for President made to the public were untrue.”
But this past Sunday, Clinton was interviewed on FOX News. During her interview, she and claimed that Comey had “said my answers were truthful, and what I’ve said is consistent with what I have told the American people.”
The Washington Post after conducting an investigation of its own into Clinton’s statements, found that “Clinton is cherry-picking statements by Comey to preserve her narrative’ about why she sent and received classified documents on a private email server in her house.”
Thus, the Post found that Clinton’s “cherrypicking” of the FBI Director’s statements have given her the opportunity to essentially go under the radar and “slip past the more disturbing findings of the FBI investigation.”
Here is another problem with Clinton’s claim that the FBI investigation found her testimony to be “truthful.” Apparently, during her interviews with FBI investigators, she was never ” placed under oath.” In other words, Clinton was most likely lying during those interviews.
The investigation needs to continue.
According to Robby Mook, the Clinton Campaign’s Campaign Manager, Clinton had apologized numerous times about “using a private system for her only email address while she was secretary of state” but kept saying she was “blind to the fact that thousands of messages were she sent and received contained state secrets.”
Mook continued to defend Clinton, saying that she realized that “this was a mistake” several times, and that he has “apologized for it.
It’s true that we all make mistakes. But making the same one over and over again is gross negligence on Clinton’s part. Mook is right about one of Clinton’s traits. She is blind-she is UNFIT for office.
