Hillary Clinton Mocks Trump After Very Scary Indictment

Hillary Clinton Mocks Trump After Very Scary Indictment

(LibertySons.org) – Republicans cried foul on Friday, June 9, after prosecutors unsealed an indictment against former President Donald Trump. The cries increased in volume after former Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton posted a tweet mocking Trump with a familiar meme after the news of his prosecution broke.

Clinton made light of Trump’s predicament by posting a picture of herself advertising the sale of an unstructured dad cap later that day. The hat bore the words “But Her Emails” printed in pink on the front to raise funds for her political action foundation, Onward Together. By Monday, the post had received more than 26 million views and plenty of GOP criticism.

Clinton’s meme stems from an investigation into her emails, which she hosted on a private email server that she used while she served as Secretary of State under former President Barack Obama. In June 2015, a State Department Inspector General first flagged an issue with emails containing references to classified information which weren’t sufficiently marked and which Clinton transmitted and received on the private email server. That discovery resulted in an FBI investigation that lasted through July 2016 when then-FBI Director James Comey issued a statement saying the bureau found no evidence of “willful mishandling of classified information” and nothing to support recommending criminal charges.

In addition to Trump, several prominent Republicans, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, and even former Gov. Chris Christie, have pointed to what they believe constitutes a disparity between how the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ) had treated Clinton as compared with Trump’s current treatment. Yet attorney Robert Kelner, a conservative DC lawyer, told The Washington Post he didn’t see any “plausible comparison.”

Kelner cited the 2018 DOJ Inspector General’s report, which found no evidence that Clinton intentionally sought to obstruct justice. By comparison, he pointed out Trump’s indictment highlights allegations that the former president deliberately tried to hide and withhold evidence during the investigation.
