Hillary’s Email in the Court of Public Opinion (National Radio Commentary, Salem/Townhall) July 13, 2016

Posted by daviddavenport in Politics, Radio Commentaries.

The FBI concluded that Hillary Clinton’s email practices were “extremely careless” but not criminal. That’s the court of law, but the court of public opinion will speak on this matter at the ballot box November 8.

Let’s face it, there is plenty of room for the electorate to draw a different conclusion about electing a president than the FBI reached on a criminal indictment. “I’m extremely careless but not a crook” isn’t a great slogan for a campaign bumper sticker.

What should voters weigh about this?
• 110 emails in her personal account contained classified information

• Thousands of her emails were deleted and not made available

• It is possible, the FBI said—probable I would say—that other countries hostile to our interests hacked her insecure emails.

Voters, who already say they are concerned about Clinton’s integrity, are right to consider her lack of care and openness in handling this vital matter of national security.
