On July 8th, Hillary Clinton, attempting to defuse reports about her burgeoning email scandal, told CNN’s Brianna Keilar, “….I’ve never had a subpoena…”
This was a blatant, flat-out, bald-faced lie. And she knew it. The next day, [mc_name name=’Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’G000566′ ] produced a copy of the subpoena that the Select Committee on Benghazi had issued to her in March.
Since that time, Clinton has done a few carefully staged public appearances, and a few interviews. She has managed to keep the press at arm’s length.
The fact that not one reporter has been able, or cared, to ask her the one simple question: “Why did you lie?” speaks volumes as to how deep in the tank the MSM is for her campaign.
So, will she be able to keep avoiding the question?
The first Democrat debate, on CNN, is scheduled for Oct 13th. If the question has not been put to her before that time, it should be the FIRST question she is asked.
If that does not happen, then CNN has forfeited any vestiges of credibility it might still possess as a news organization.
And if other Democrats are actually serious about winning the nomination, they should ask the question of her publicly, and force her to answer.
That means you, Bernie.
