Hillary Just Got Blindsided By Devastating News
by Warner Todd Huston, Western Journalism One has to wonder how long the Democrat establishment will continue to support Hillary in light of her seriously deteriorating approval ratings. This month they’ve stumbled yet again. On the other hand, Trump and quasi socialist Democrat Bernie Sanders continue to see large growth among their separate voter base. The latest bad news for Hillary finds that her numbers are particularly bad in three key “battleground” states that are of vital importance toward actually securing the presidency. The latest poll data comes from the YouGov/CBS News 2016 Battleground Tracker that shows that Sanders,Trump and Dr. Ben Carson are surging in the polls while establishment heroes like Clinton and Jeb Bush are in serious trouble. The worst news is for Hillary as Sen. Sanders (I-VT) leads her with 43 percent in Iowa, while Clinton lags 10 points behind at 33 percent. On speculation, Vice President Joe Biden come in third at ten percent even though the VP has yet to announce another run for the White House. This leaves the other several Democrat candidates–who unlike Biden have announced–trailing far, far behind. Candidates such as former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, who is languishing under 10 percent, along with former Virginia Senator Jim Webb (with about 4 percent) and former Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee (less than a percent). These three can’t seem to make any dent at all in the polls. With some small differences, the polls in South Carolina and New Hampshire found similar results for the Democrats. As to the Republicans, it seems that Trump is running away with it at between 30 and 40 percent in the three states with Dr. Carson in second place only single digits away from Trump. Sen. Ted Cruz (R, TX) is generally seen as the third place candidate (except in more liberal NH) not just in these three states but nationally. Surprisingly, despite being the run away favorite of the GOP establishment, Jeb Bush is in worse shape than Hilary. Bush is barely getting six percent in any of these battleground polls. Clearly, though the trend we are seeing right now among those answering these polls–and not just in the battleground states but across the country–is that voters are supporting candidates who are either non-politicians (such as Trump, Carson, and Fiorina) or are those outside of the usual political milieu (such as Cruz and Sanders). Here is how the three states stand on the top vote getters of the GOP field: Iowa Trump (29 percent) Carson (25 percent) Cruz (10 percent) Rubio (6 percent) Fiorina (4 percent) New Hampshire Trump (40 percent) Carson (12 percent) Kasich (9 percent) Fiorina (8 percent) Bush (6 percent) South Carolina Trump (36 percent) Carson (21 percent) Cruz (6 percent) Bush (5 percent) Graham (5 percent) More Bad News For Hillary Company Responsible For Hillary’s Servers Drops 2-Sentence Truth Bomb She Didn’t Want To Hear
The company responsible for maintaining Hillary Clinton’s private email server stated that it has no reason to believe it has been “wiped.”
There is a difference between “wiping” and deleting emails from a server according to Platte River Networks.
Company spokesman Andy Boian stated: “Platte River has no knowledge of the server being wiped. All the information we have is that the server wasn’t wiped.”
For a server to successfully be wiped, the date must not only be deleted, it must be written over with “gibberish,” possibly several times, the Washington Post reports.
That process has not happened with Clinton’s server according to Platte River, which means in all likelihood all of the former secretary of state’s emails will be recovered.
As reported by Western Journalism, the FBI already indicated that it would be able to retrieve some or all of the data.
Clinton turned over 30,000 work-related emails to the State Department in December, in response to a FOIA lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch. By court order, those emails are being reviewed by the department and released to the public in batches of several thousand at a time.
Judicial Watch reported on Monday that it has discovered a five-month gap in the emails that the State Department released.
The gap in emails received by Clinton run from Jan. 21, 2009, when she became secretary of state, to March 17, 2009. The gaps in emails sent by Clinton from from Jan. 21, 2009, to April 12, 2009, and from Dec. 30, 2012, to Feb. 1, 2013.
According to Judicial Watch, these revelations cast doubt on her written affidavit to the court last month, under penalty of perjury, which stated: “I have directed that all of my emails on clintonemail.com in my custody that were or potentially were federal records be provided to the Department of State.”
As reported by Western Journalism, the State Department confirmed in June that Clinton did not tell the truth regarding turning over all her work-related emails to the agency. This revelation came following Clinton confidant Sid Blumenthal’s testimony for the Select Committee on Benghazi in June, prior to which he turned over numerous emails between himself and the secretary, some of which the State Department had not received.
Further, Clinton told MCNBC’s Andrea Mitchell last week that: “the facts I have put forth [regarding her email server], have remained the same,” which is untrue.
After the scandal broke in March, Clinton said: “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material.” The presidential candidate reiterated: “I’m certainly well-aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.”
After the State Department began to find emails with classified information in them (currently numbering well over one hundred), Clinton changed her tune stating she had not sent or received any emails that were marked classified at the time.
