MSNBC op-ed Has Twisted Defense of Clinton’s Private Server

In a recent MSNCB op-ed by Rachel Maddow’s producer, Steve Benen, he claims Hillary Clinton’s private server where she kept classified government documents and secrets.

Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III said at the time that it found information on Clinton’s private server going beyond the “top secret” level.

The op-ed claims that because Clinton was not indicted and President Donald Trump was, there is “little resemblance” to the mishandling of classified documents by the former Secretary of State and failed two-time presidential candidate.

“Trump’s scandal bears little resemblance to his former rival’s. Clinton didn’t take physical documents. She didn’t ignore pleas for cooperation. She didn’t store highly sensitive secrets at a private club that had an unfortunate habit of letting foreign spies walk around,” claimed the op-ed.

However, Trump did let federal officials search his Mar-a-Lago home upon his own reconnaissance and even took the FBI’s advice to add security to a storage area where documents were kept. Regardless, the FBI raided his estate this month despite cooperation with the DOJ requests.

The MSNBC op-ed does, however, concede that Trump will likely be found not guilty, but in the chance that he is found guilty, Benen says, “[i]t will be because the evidence proved that he broke the law.”

Many Republicans and even Democrats are starting to see the targeted raid on the 45th President as a political weaponization of the DOJ and the FBI to stop Trump from making another bid for the White House in 2024. Only time will tell what conclusions Joe Biden’s Justice Department come to in the probe of his political enemy.

Clinton and Trump are both crazy. What is the USA coming to? Everyday there are
crises and they are mutually to blame.

No, they are not both to blame. All Democrats and RINOs deserve the blame.

Susan, and how did you come to that brainless conclusion???? You must have a migraine by now??? If you voted for what’s in the WH now, you’re part of the problem!!!
Are you happy with EVERYTHING that’s going on in our country right now???
Because you know it as well as I do that NONE OF THIS STUFF went on from 2016 to 2020.
But, as they say: you can’t fix stupid!

I agree that Clinton is crazy. But I wouldn’t say that about Trump. Actually I would say Clinton is more of a “B” word. Trump just tells you the way it is.

I REMEMBER THAT WHEN THE DEBATES CAME WE ALL WERE TOLD THAT QUESTIONS WERE SECRET AND FOR ANYONE TO HAVE THE QUESTIONS BEFORE THEY WERE READ AT THE DEBATES WAS FEDERAL OFFENSE PUNISHABLE BY JAIL. SO EXPLAIN TO ME HOW DONNA BRAZIL ISN’T IN JAIL FOR FEEDING HILLARY THE QUESTIONS A WEEK AHEAD OF DEBATES SO SHE COULD SPEND THE WHOLE WEEK PRACTICING HER ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS. WHILE POOR TRUMP HAD TO ANSWER UPON THE QUESTION BEING ASKED. AND WOW EVEN WITH A WEEKS PRACTICE TRUMP STILL OUT DEBATED THE CRAZY NATIONS NUMBER ONE SUPPORTER OF DOMESTIC TERRORISTS GROUPS IN AMERICAN. FOLLOWED CLOSELY BY HARRIS, OBAMA, BIDENS AND PELOSIS. AND ALL UPPER DEM PARTY LEADERS.
