Hillary Clinton masterfully mocks James Comey over his misuse of private email

Hillary Clinton masterfully mocks James Comey over his misuse of private email“But her emails.” It’s become a meme at this point. The Republican party  — and Trump campaign — made such a huge stinkin’ deal about Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, that any time a more serious scandal enveloped the right, people would mock the time and effort spent trying to “lock her up.”  The phrase has also been used jokingly to insult Trump supporters for latching onto the email scandal for so long, while there’s plenty of better things to be concerned about. a man in a MAGA hat stumbles out of his basement, choking on dust and radioactive fallout”but her emails!” he whispers, before dying — tom (@toms_spaghetti) May 15, 2017 So, when it was revealed on Thursday that former FBI director James Comey used a personal email account for official government business by the Justice Department’s internal watchdog, many saw the irony. You know, considering it was Comey who issued a statement in October 2016 — just 11 days before the election — saying the FBI was reopening its investigation into Clinton’s email use.  “But my emails,” Clinton tweeted on Thursday in response to a tweet from a
Politico reporter highlighting Comey’s own email missteps.  But my emails. https://t.co/G7TIWDEG0p — Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) June 14, 2018 The watchdog report also concluded that Comey’s handling of Clinton’s email investigation was “extraordinary and insubordinate” but was not motivated by political boas.  Well, if anything, Clinton has proved once again that she is truly a killer of memes. First the “delete your account” meme, and now “but her emails.” Thanks, Hillary.  WATCH: These trees have lived for 2,500 years. Now they’re suddenly dying

Trump accused of 'blatant misuse of presidential power' after tweeting about jobs report ahead of release

Trump accused of 'blatant misuse of presidential power' after tweeting about jobs report ahead of releasePresident Donald Trump broke years of presidential protocol Friday morning with a tweet that signalled a strong jobs report was on its way from the Labor Department, an hour before the report was released. While the White House brushed off any notion that Trump had crossed a line, legal experts said the tweet raised possible insider trading concerns and economists said it was a blatant misuse of presidential power. The Bureau of Labor Statistics routinely releases its monthly employment report on the first Friday of the month.
