Hillary Clinton still thinks she was innocent in her email stunt years ago, and it’s evident by her arrogant tweet against Mark Meadows and personal email accounts that the left is calling questionable. Was it found that Meadows deleted 30,000 emails? Not quite.
Clinton tweeted a response to an MSNBC article about Meadows email accounts, “Especially since his emails were about plotting a coup d’etat, while ours were about gefilte fish.”
Gefilte fish is “a dish of stewed or baked stuffed fish or fish cakes boiled in a fish or vegetable broth and usually served chilled.” It’s unlikely there were 30,000 emails about that.
Not many people know what Clinton’s emails contained because they were deleted. There could have been secret information shared with foreign entities and governments for all we know. The fact that it was deleted shows the complete disdain for accountability.
The MSNBC article outlines how Meadows is acting hypocritically with e-mails he helped investigate on the oversight committee. Context matters here. Not only did Adam Schiff alter, edit, and misrepresent text messages between Meadows and Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH), but there’s also a full-on attack on Republicans as a whole. At the same time, people like Clinton, both of them are swept under the rug. James Comey, director of the FBI, described Clinton’s behavior as “extremely careless,” yet no repercussions exist.
If it’s discovered that Meadows has deleted 30,000 emails, then sure, let’s investigate. Still, the issue of Clinton’s emails wasn’t the personal use, but that the “State Department requests all former Secretaries of State to ‘submit any records in their possession for proper preservation.”
The fact that the left is pretending that Schiff is being honest with his testimony is insulting any judicial process.
The troubling part of this entire situation is that Schiff said himself, “You can see why this is so critical to ask Mr. Meadows about, about a lawmaker suggesting that the former vice president simply throw outvoted that he unilaterally deems unconstitutional to overturn a presidential election and subvert the will of the American people.”
While Schiff said that, he read an edited text to his liking to make it appear an attempt to overturn the election.
Major news publications are misrepresenting the facts as well. While CNN reported on this, the headline is “Jim Jordan sent one of the texts revealed by the January 6 committee,” with no mention of an edited or altered representation of the text. They included the read by Schiff and the complete text. Still, they didn’t explain that it’s dangerous and misleading to insert punctuation and edit text messages while submitting evidence of what could be interpreted as a crime. It’s irresponsible and doesn’t give readers the necessary perspective to evaluate the situation.
