Actually, they are in a near panic over her getting caught as they have been fine with her criminality for a couple of decades. From The Hill, Dems near Clinton panic mode:
Democrats are worried that the furor over Hillary Clinton’s private email server will be prolonged and intensified after her sudden move to hand it to the FBI.
The Clinton campaign’s decision to give up the server and a thumb-drive containing back-up copies of emails left Democrats scratching their heads as to why the former secretary of State had resisted turning over the server for months.
Coupled with new polls that suggest Clinton is vulnerable, Democrats are nearing full-on panic mode.
“I’m not sure they completely understand the credibility they are losing, by the second,” said one Democratic strategist, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “At some point this goes from being something you can rationalize away to something that becomes political cancer. And we are getting pretty close to the cancer stage, because this is starting to get ridiculous.
Separately, Media Matters for America — the liberal watchdog group founded by Clinton ally David Brock — sent out a statement under the subject-line “Myths and Facts about Hillary Clinton’s email.” The first fact it listed was that “none of the emails sent to Clinton were labeled as classified or top secret.”
It goes without saying that aging pederast David Brock’s nasty little neo-Nazi propaganda machine is just an arm of the Clinton machine. But I was intrigued as to what possible defense they could offer. These are their points. I’m not providing a link because I don’t link to hate sites.
Rarely does one encounter such a brazen example of lying. Actually not a single fact in this is true.
Fact. At least two documents were imagery from the Talent Keyhole satellite and they were clearly marked.
Fact. Retroactive classification aside (though the Obama administration persecuted NSA whistleblower Tom Drake by retroactively classifying documents), the documents in question were and remain highly classified.
Fact. Actually the experts cited only debunked a comparison IF Hillary unknowingly stored classified information. That is not the case.
Fact. The only kind of referral from an Agency IG to the FBI is a criminal referral. The FBI does not investigate acts which are only administrative glitches. In fact, the initial Justice Department press release called it a “criminal referral” before Hillary’s campaign strong-armed the agency into calling it a “security referral for counterintelligence purposes.”
The problem for the Democrat establishment is getting more interesting by the day. The national mood demands change but their front runners are white, social security eligible, party apparatchiks who haven’t had an original thought in decades. The nation distrusts government and 57% of the nation doesn’t trust Hillary Clinton (I don’t even want to imagine where they found the 43% who do). Other polls find that in swing states EVERY GOP CANDIDATE either lead Hillary or is well with the MOE of the poll. More importantly, the nation is united in its dislike of Clinton:
This profile with a burgeon investigation that dovetails nicely with your main weakness is not what any candidate needs. While I’m stocking up on popcorn, the Democrats find themselves very late in the election cycle with a candidate who isn’t liked, isn’t trusted, and may very well see her inner circle indicted if she isn’t indicted herself. Do they convince her to step aside? Do they encourage more palatable alternatives to get in the race? Do they pull a Torricelli at some later point and replace her with another nominee? The only thing certain is that it is becoming increasingly difficult to see how Clinton stays in the race much less wins the White House…unless the GOP does what it does best…
