This could very well be the beginning of the end of Hillary Clinton's campaign.
This latest revelation of a discrepency over Hillary Clinton's story as to why she turned over her emails to the story of that of the State Department...took Clinton by surprise...leaving her scrambling for an answer which wouldn't come.

Caught like a deer in the headlights, when questioned about the differing stories by a reporter...all Clinton could say was:
"I don't know that. I can't answer that".
Sooner or later, the lies catch up.

Obviously, Obama and Jarrett have decided to let the chips fall where they may, giving the nod to the State Dept. that Clinton no longer need be shielded. Biden is their man, now...especially as Biden may very well have just agreed to serve only one term and to allow Obama to designate his choice as V.P. to take over.



Another apparent discrepancy has arisen in what Hillary Clinton has said about her emails.

When The Des Moines Register asked her about the latest twist in the private server saga on Tuesday, she said she had no new answers.


Just before Clinton sat down for a 105-minute meeting with the Register's editorial board, the Washington Post posted a news story that said the State Department's request for her emails was "prompted entirely by the discovery that Clinton had exclusively used a private e-mail system."

That contradicts what Clinton has been saying, which is that agency officials asked her for her emails as part of a benign, general record-keeping effort to sweep up "everything from other secretaries of state, not just me," as she said Sunday.


After the editorial board meeting, a Register reporter asked Clinton if she could explain the discrepancy between her characterization of why she turned over the emails and the State Department's.

"I don't know that. I can't answer that," Clinton answered. "All I know is that they sent the same letter to everybody. That's my understanding."


The Register told Clinton that the Post was reporting that State Department officials contacted her in the summer of 2014 — a sign that officials had been caught off guard upon discovering she had used a private server to conduct government business. That was at least three months before the agency asked Clinton and three of her predecessors to provide their e-mails, the Post reported.

"You're telling me something I don't know," Clinton said. "All I know is what I have said. What I have said is it was allowed. The State Department has confirmed that. The same letter went to, as far as I know, my predecessors, and I'm the one who said, 'Hey, I'll be glad to help.'

"But we'll give you additional information as we get it."

Clinton campaign aides said later that what she has said all along is consistent with what transpired — and consistent with the details explained in the Post story.

"As we have said, Secretary Clinton responded to a request of her and other prior Secretaries of State to assist with the department's record keeping," campaign spokesman Nick Merrill said. "Due to her practice of emailing her colleagues on their state.gov email addresses, 90 percent of her work-related correspondence occurred on the department's email system, and she provided her copies as well, about 55,000 pages total. Everything she has said in answering questions has been consistent with this."

She should have used Hotmail and cut out the middle-man. These things keep dripping out, but many of the people who have had it even enter their awareness probably don't know what the fuss is all about.

You can only hope it's the end,
but these days, truth means nothing.

Empty promises is where it's at.

" I don't know that. I can't answer that "



This will be as famous as the famous " What difference does it make " quote


How will Hillary go down in the history books I wonder?

It has been my experience over the last five years that anyone with a D by their names. The LIES never seem to matter.

Sad,True.

Some people just don't want to hold the Clintons to the same standards as the Fiorina's.

Fixed that for ya.


As for the OP, Clinton has really stepped in it with the whole email scandal. I'll be VERY surprised if she's even in the running anymore in a few months. She's lied one too many times I think, people know her game now.

My what a tangled web, sooo many different stories
she has, how can she begin to keep track of them?

Add in this little tidbit just breaking:
www.bloomberg.com...

Someone is leaking info, as the news was FBI was going to follow
protocol, and would not even acknowledge an investigation.

Yup.
The NYT also said the FBI recovered personal and work emails.
Bottom line:
If even ONE work-related email that Clinton deleted, but did not turn over is is among those recovered...IT'S GAME OVER!

Yes, funny how just today State decides to admit they asked
Hillary for the records back in 2014.

They say timing is everything.

I just wish a really good journalist would take this on,
and follow it to the end, you know... like when Nixon went down.

Oh, it will ultimately be the end of her campaign. But i doubt she will see prison for anything. This is all orchestrated to help Bernie and prison is not part of the plan.

More likely, Biden.

Biden will split the moderate democrat vote with Hillary and throw the race to Bernie. *Ross Perot style* He already took 12+points from her last month without even announcing a run. Bernie GAINED 12 points during that time, too, btw.

Bernie plans on letting Congress divert the most money to their pockets. He's Teh Chosen One.

That's my opinion anyway.

Good opinion.
Rumor has it that Biden will run for only one term...and that he will agree to choose Obama friend and ally former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick as his running mate.
For that, Obama will completely ditch Hillary and Bernie and support Biden and Patrick...continuing the Obama legacy for two more terms.
