Krauthanhammer and the Trump Trap

  Charles Krauthammer said on "Special Report"  that Trump set a trap, and the Clinton campaign fell right into it. He explained that the Clinton campaign statement said it would be a "national security issue," which contradicts Clinton's repeated assertions that the missing 33,000 emails were all of a personal nature, not work-related.

"If that's what's really in the 33,000 emails, then there's no national security to be involved at all," Krauthammer said. "So the Clinton campaign ends up admitting that perhaps there really is work-related - if not classified - stuff on the emails which she deleted."

Krauthammer said that could be grounds for a charge of obstruction, declaring that the Clinton campaign has been caught in a complete contradiction.  From Fox News Insider

"Raise Your Hand If You Will Not Promise to Support the Winner"

The sore losers Bush, Kasich, and Rubio, after agreeing they would support whoever won, are nowhere to be seen at the convention. My first reaction was disgust. However, as each state’s roll call was given, I began to think, "Hey if I were any of them, I think I would be hiding out too."
If your name was Jeb Bush, you would only hear it for four votes, and everyone would know, you spent $32.5 million per vote.
 
If you are Kasich, you would only hear you won 161 but 66 of those were your own hometown folks. You would also hear from the chair that it would be appropriate if he gave the Ohio votes up. How humiliating!
 
And Rubio, the most petulant of all would be asked why, in an unprecedented move, did he hold on to his paltry 172 even though he had quit.
 
I was going to include a picture of babies with their thumbs in their mouth but that would have been cruel.

Ginsburg, Hillary, Lynch: The New Normal for Our Leaders

Justice Ginsburg: I knew I should not have dragged the court down into the partisan political mud when I praised Hillary and trashed Trump, but I just did it anyway.
 
Hillary: I knew I should not have jeopardized the life of our agents in the field by having an unsecured server, but I just did it anyway.
 
 
Attorney General Lynch: I knew I should not have let Bill Clinton on my plane when I might have to indict his wife, but I just did it anyway.
 
 
(Paraphrasing what they all said publically.) 

Looks Like It Is Pence for VP

Today's Wall Street Journal Worth Buying For Front Page and Editorial Page Alone

  "This is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions," (Comey admits)
 
"So there it is in the political raw: One standard exists for a Democratic candidate for President and another for the hoi polloi. We’re not sure if Mr. Comey, the erstwhile Eliot Ness, intended to be so obvious, but what a depressing moment this is for the American rule of law. No wonder so many voters think Washington is rigged for the powerful."
 
"By a reasonable person’s standards, Mrs. Clinton’s decision to use a private server, to give her aides access to it, to email classified information on it, to fail to secure it, and to use it in hostile territory was grossly negligent. We can’t wait for the next minion prosecuted for mishandling secrets to invoke the "extremely careless" defense".
 
"We almost wish Mr. Comey had avoided his self-justifying, have-it-both-ways statement and said bluntly that he couldn’t indict Mrs. Clinton because the country must be spared a Donald Trump Presidency. It would have been more honest and less corrosive to democracy than his Clinton Standard."   Gleanings from   WSJ  editorial. Blogger's emphasis.
