Ron Fournier:

I Don’t Believe Hillary Clinton

I don’t believe Hillary Rodham Clinton when she says—as she did at a brief news conference on Tuesday—that she has no control over the release of her State Department email. “They’re not mine. They belong to the State Department.”

I don’t believe her because a person’s actions are more revealing than words: She kept her government email on a secret server and, only under pressure from Congress, returned less than half of them to the State Department. She deleted the rest. She considered them hers.

I don’t believe her when she says, “I want those emails out. Nobody has a bigger interest in those being released than I do.”

I don’t believe her because I’ve covered the Clintons since the 1980s and know how dedicated they are to what former Clinton spokesman Mike McCurry called “telling the truth slowly.” The fact is that she would rather delay the document dump until early 2016—and then have the email released on a single day to overwhelm the media and allow her to declare herself exonerated. That was her strategic choice, Clinton advisers confirmed for me, until a federal judge ordered the State Department on Tuesday to release the email in stages.

I don’t believe her answer to this question: Is there a conflict of interest in accepting huge speaking fees from special interests seeking government action? “No,” she replied.

I don’t believe her because I saw how hard Clinton and her husband, then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, worked to pass the state’s first sweeping ethics initiative. I don’t believe her because I’ve heard Clinton and her husband rail against GOP politicians who were guilty of less-obvious conflicts of interest. I don’t believe her because there have been far too many credible news reports about the blurring of lines between family finances, the family foundation, and her political and government interests.

It is not unusual in courts of law to see “he said, she said” cases where the outcome hinges on which side is more credible. Obviously somebody isn’t telling the truth, but which one?

Attacking the credibility of a witness is called impeachment. There is a jury instruction that says if a witness lied in part of their testimony that the jury can disregard everything they said. There is also an exception to the Hearsay Rule regarding false or misleading statements made out of court.

Last but not least there are rules of evidence that say that if a party hides, conceals and/or destroys evidence it creates a presumption that the evidence was incriminating against that party and that lying, concealing or destroying evidence can be used to establish “consciousness of guilt.”

Hillary Clinton has done each and every one of those things. So why should we believe a single word that comes out of her mouth now?

"Who let the damn reporters in here?"

    If Hillary thinks that the media will protect her the same way they have protected Obama she is badly mistaken.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Ron Fournier was just interviewed by Bret Baier and he’s sticking to his guns.

      • From you link -” I don’t believe her because there have been far too many credible news reports”. An oxymoron?

        • DeniseVB says:

          Wasn’t my link, but here’s the whole sentence in context:

          “I don’t believe her because there have been far too many credible news reports about the blurring of lines between family finances, the family foundation, and her political and government interests.”

          No, not an oxymoron😉

    Those eyes become twice as large when she lies, which means they pretty much stay that way all the time…..

    Apparently the City of Merced work crew out front is going to ruin my mid-afternoon nap.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Who knew? Merced listed today as one of ten most dangerous CA cities. Merced? MERCED??????
      Snelling, maybe, or Le Grand. But Merced?

    This is not Hillary from 2008. I think the only thing that can save her is run against Obama’s 2 painful terms, if she doesn’t, I fear it means Obama’s third term and cashing in the i.o.u.’s of the CGI’s most generous donors…..Wall Street and the middle east.

    • Lulu says:

      I think the pendulum has already swung. With all of this stuff coming out it is apparent that running is just a means of cashing in even if she doesn’t fully realize it. The money grubbing value of the Clinton “foundation” is worth about a third to a half if she is not running for something or in a high profile office. She is not running as a serious or ambitious candidate. It seems like she is just going through the motions to keep up the scam. Rumors of the idiot Castro brother (even less qualified than Obama was) being the VP is not that of a serious person and unacceptable from someone of her age, health, and experience. It looks like the last great con.

    What an awful picture of Hillary! The one with her mouth open.

    Just because it is funny. Today was primary day. Girl next door is a senior. The boys filled her yard with hundreds, thousands of yard signs. Boys went around all day stealing signs Fuckers even brought steaks to keep my dogs quiet.i looked the other way. Her mom was pretending to be mad all the while stifling a laugh. Good clean fun. Cops came by as someone actually complained. Unreal a kids joke. I saw nothing. Nope ten teens planting signs and i missed it. Strange as I knocked out my outside cameras during that time. Lady is very mad and is calling it voter suppression. I know almost all city council and the mayor. Not hard in a town of 15thousand. she wants these kids arrested. Insanity she had one sign for State Supreme Court judge.every inch of my neighbors yard was covered in signs. Seems obvious a boy has a crushand wants her attention. I think he was clever. This woman wants to file feloney charges. Criminal tresspass and voter rights stuff. WoW these boys may face real charges. Polls closed less than an hour ago and she is bringing charges.
    Did you know if when doing laundry if you pick up all the hardware for home security and wash that they become useless. They should really consider a warning label. Do not machine wash who knew? Very creepy my outside lights with motion stuff failed at the same time as my indoor security.
    This woman is demanding these boys pay. They took her sign out of her yard but they took everyone’s. They took mine and moved it six feet. Neighbor is a pretty girl and smart. Boys took leaves and wrote suggestive things. In leaves.She came to me on her own and apologized. So adult some of the stuff was crude very crude but some was also amazing art made with leaves on window shields. I lived on Great Jones thirty plus years ago. I sold a dirty sock for 10 grand.
    I did not know Warhol but i knew a lot of his peeps. I was late 80’s some of the shine had worn off. I had a basement apartment on Great Jones. Met everyone who was hot late 80s early 90s i was so poor. I had a ton of milk crates i bought at kmart and futons. I made my entire place one bed used the outside crates as dresser. Rich fucks thought it was charming. Kid you not one time a wealthyasian guy wanted to buy my bed because he thoughta stain was dirty.i said nope me and chinese takeout. He was rich chinese i’d say smart but he was appalled that i was notrepulsed by poor.

    I wonder if anyone will ever look her in the eye and ask.
    how do you look at yourself in the mirror knowing how you lied to the Benghazi parents over the caskets of their children? every time I see her on TV that is my first thought

  10. Dora says:

    Anyone who has read the text of the agreement could be jailed for disclosing its contents. Yikes!

    I’ve Read Obama’s Secret Trade Deal. Elizabeth Warren Is Right to Be Concerned.

    • leslie says:

      I saw that too. The guy who wrote this seems to be a credible person and had worked for other administrations as well. But has not seen this type of conniving and slyness before. I’m telling you, obama is a snake oil salesman. This administration is poison.

      • Lulu says:

        The trade rep who is running this shit show is a real piece of work. Nasty, lying, effete scumbag. He is literally standing guard at the door and accusing Democrats of trying to sneak out notes. They need to get a person in with a photographic memory for several sessions, come out, write it out, and LEAK it. The administration and this trade reps story that everything has to be secret is bullshit. The other countries aren’t doing this unless they are totalitarian dictatorships like China who always does it. I hope they learned their lesson with Obamacare. NO ONE trusts or believes anything this administration says or does nor should they. The fast track claims are garbage. Kill it. And bum rush the trade rep at the door. Giving rules to US Senators by a jacked up asshole takes gall. Bronco thinks he has enough time left to put them all in prison? 19 months is not enough time.

        • leslie says:

          I’m with you, Lulu. Yet, I don’t think many have learned anything from the passage of Obamacare. I’m aghast at the numbers who continue to claim O-care is the best thing since sliced bread. It’s making me ill. Because of O-care, I was paid $2k+ less last year than in 2013, and worked 42-45 hour weeks nearly every week last year. (I don’t get overtime, and I work damn hard anyway while the Special Snowflake Academy graduate I work with takes “power naps”. She sees me as racisss because I don’t genuflect or bow my head at the utterance of POTUS’ name.)

    Judicial Watch: Defense, State Department Documents Reveal Obama Administration Knew that al Qaeda Terrorists Had Planned Benghazi Attack 10 Days in Advance

    • Lulu says:

      You could tell they were lying through their teeth by the poor quality of their lies and who they sent out to lie. The ridiculousness of their plot line read like fan-fiction online it was so bad. There is a very good reason national security adviser Ben Rhodes is a FAILED novelist. And the vehemence of their butthurt and offense of not being believed is always a tell with this bunch.

  12. Lulu says:

    One of the telling moments in Hill’s “news conference” answering a couple of questions is when she declared she has “lots of friends” and the smirky way she said it. I say you do Hill but not as many as you used to have. I would advise her to watch the Ted Cruz clip in NH of a lady who admits to being a 2008 Hillary voter. The crowd laughs but Cruz doesn’t because he has heard it before. Then she asks her question about immigration and he answers her without smirking or popping off like a dick.

  13. DeniseVB says:

    Here’s your wake up video guys, should get your senses out of sleepy mode and straight to blood boiling😀

    • DeniseVB says:

      LOL…from the comments….
      “Elizabeth Warren comes by her socialism honestly? Last I heard, the women had $17 million in the bank. Sounds more like the “socialism for thee, but not for me” crowd.”

      EW’s also the self-proclaimed “Mother of the OWS Movement”. If I were still a rabid- liberal-Republican-Hater, I’d be very concerned about the Dem field.

      • Dora says:

        There was a restaurant downtown NYC called the Milk Cafe. Hubby and I ate there once and found it to be a wonderful place. It had only been there a short time when the OWS demonstrations began. The city put up barricades in the area and as a result people were no longer able to get to the Milk Cafe. The owner fought the barricades, he fought the demonstrations, but eventually he lost so much business that he had to close his cafe. It cost him millions of dollars! So, the owner lost his business, the people lost a great place to eat and the city lost tourist money. Although I was enthused about the OWS Movement at first, I now have to scratch my head and wonder what they were really trying to accomplish.

        • Myiq2xu says:

          OWS were rebels without a clue. They helped me to see the intellectual poverty of the Left.

          In 2008 I was a liberal Democrat.

          In 2009 I was a liberal.

          By 2012 I was neither.

        • DeniseVB says:

          We were told by the OWS supporters “to wait for it” and we still are😉

  14. DeniseVB says:

    True Story….

    • 49erDweet says:

      If I had ever been a judge, one of the terms of probation I’d impose on guys like this wacko bunch would be to “shave off your facial hair and keep it off”.

  15. DeniseVB says:

    Boom !

    • DeniseVB says:

      …..and there’s Hillary’s biggest problem. MSNBC was never her biggest supporter either, remember “tingles” and “beating her up in a closet til she dropped out in ’08” (Olbermann).

      • leslie says:

        Seriously, who could forget those MSNBHO moments?

        • DeniseVB says:

          A few years ago I got into a twitter fight with Olbermann for not criticizing Obama, not really a fight, he said he was FIRED from MSNBC because he criticized Obama and wanted to continue to do so. Like John Edwards, there’s still a special place in my heart for KO, just a teensy remnant from my mad lib days😀

          • leslie says:

            I know, Denise. Me too. (and I’m so happy not to be alone in this.) IYKWIM … (if you know what I mean…)

  16. DandyTIger says:

    In a clip of Hillary with that pseudo answering questions, she later walks around shaking people’s hands. Watch that segment if it’s around. It’s very telling. Often she puts her hand out to be shaken without looking at people. People seem to take her hand to shake reluctantly, or even embarrassingly. I would label her the reluctant campaigner.

    • DandyTIger says:

      The queen is not amused, and is offended at having to touch the grubby peasants.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I have to agree with Lulu and think this whole Presidency run for Hill is a scam for bucks for CGI. Or placeholding for the next Oblahma (ElizWarren?). I know it’s not Jim Webb, his FB page if full of hatey trolls. Gotta follow the haters😀 A local newsy FB’d a Dem poll, when I said Webb I was immediately called a FACIST. Not sure where the activist liberal heads are now, Obama destroyed Utopia😦

  17. 49erDweet says:

    With all this breaking news about bank investigations and currency manipulation going on, anyone else wonderin’ if we’re about to see another major crash/depression? Shirley, the smartest prez evah wouldn’t let THAT happen on his watch, right?

    • DeniseVB says:

      I just saw where JP Morgan and others were fined 6 billion and many top level employees are getting fired ?

      • 49erDweet says:

        Yep. El Governatuh is trying to “manage” the financial pirates of the world whilst not offending peaceful warriors, AITWH. (as if that will happen). $6B and still making a profit. Seems about right to me, duh.
