On May 25, 2016, a State Department Inspector General report that was leaked to the Associated Press was reported on by several news media outlets. Many of you are aware of the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server from which she received and transmitted government emails while she was at the State Department. Since all of the presidential politicians are jockeying to score political points before the 2016 elections, it is difficult to pierce through the rhetoric and get to the crux of the issue.

However, the email controversy has two issues that need to be kept in mind with regards to the private email server. The first is whether Clinton has lied to the electorate. The second is whether Hillary Clinton can be trusted to be open and transparent to the US electorate.

Hillary Clinton Has Lied to Voters

1. Hillary Clinton consistently argued that her home email server was “never” breached. Yet, the State Department Audit leaked last week clearly demonstrates that the server was hacked in January of 2011. As if that wasn’t enough, the report also cites two additional dates in which the server may have been hacked; January 9, 2011 and May 13, 2011.

2. Hillary Clinton has consistently argued that she had permission to use a personal email account. The audit notes that there is no record of any official approving or reviewing her use of a private email server. The report adds that the auditors “found no evidence” that Clinton “requested or obtained” approval for her private email server.

Hillary Clinton Does Not Conduct Herself Transparently

3. The State Department Audit clearly states that Hillary Clinton “should have surrendered all emails dealing with Department business before leaving government service.” It took her almost two years to release some of the records. Some are still unaccounted for.

4. The audit goes on to point out that “Clinton and several of her staff members during her tenure declined to be interviewed.” This is in sharp contrast to former Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice who all answered questions about how the handled public records while serving as Secretaries of State. Clinton and her staff refused to answer questions for the audit.

5. The final issue regarding transparency is that Hillary Clinton has stated several times that she would cooperate with any investigation. However, the State Department Audit report clearly shows that Hillary Clinton and her staffers refused to answer questions for the audit. That is not cooperating with an investigation and clearly it is not acting transparently for the benefit of the electorate.

As you can clearly see, Hillary Clinton gives the voters five concrete examples of why she should not be elected into office, especially as president of the United States.

  1. Martin
    “The Hill” and her staff destroyed 30 thousand e-mails without review by the state department which was unlawful without such review and she did not have the authority to do so under the law without such review.
    Martin look into the UBS deal she made which clearly covered up a lot of elites who had their money off shore to get out of paying tax and also look at the large amounts of money UBS give to the Clinton foundations after that sweetheart deal.
    Oh can’t leave out “The Hill” selling her presidency to foreign interest from China, to interest in the middle east funneling that money also through the Clinton foundation to run for office.
    “The Hill” is all about the “The Hill” and will never act in the best interest of the average Americans or the working poor or minorities unless there is a big pay day for “The Hill”.
    And just reported this week that most likely from Russia to China also got into her e-mail server with reports the Kremlin could dump up to 12 thousand documents they hacked from “The Hill’s” server.
    Now we are sure some one will pop up and say that we are just standing in the way of a woman being elected president but our response will have to be you are a moron if you vote for someone all based on gender. Gender should have nothing to do with it if someone is qualified to hold office or not.
    Sorry “THE Hill” has shown herself to be no better than a thug and a political prostitute at it worst.

  2. Let’s not forget the IT Tech pagliano. Mills stated she used the same like a process my work in the Senate. So she took her deceit with her to the Senate from the Senate to the Secretary of State position and don’t kid yourself it will follow her to the White House. The only consolation we have is she will not win in November. This is just one example of this ladies dishonesty and lack of integrity. I will not base my vote on gender, race or ethnicity.

  3. So Martin, does this mean you are now in favor of a Trump presidency? Because that is the only viable alternative.

  4. She will be the next POTUS because Americans enjoy the political theater of demagogues, like Trump, but never elect them. We will stay on the course of war, debt, and 1% just-for-us like in El Paso. She will also continue on the Obama path of pervo-lib, so expect legalized pedophilia by the end of her presidency. That will get Bill off the hook for his antics with Jeffrey Epstein on his Lolita Express jet.

  5. Anglo, he has other choices.

    Hillary, lies started with her own name. She claimed to be named after Sir Hillary of MT Everest renown. She was FIRED from the Watergate Commission for lies, incompetence and ethics violations. As a senator and SecState, she received numerous classified briefings and read many classified doccuments, and she had no inkling of what is sensitive information ? People handling classified information receive annual briefings about protection of classified information, did she not ? If work computers are not to be used for private or personal mailings, how could she not know ? Most businesses have that policy. Did she not know the importance or purpose of a computer password ?

    Only she can make a very small investment in pork bellies stock the day before and wake up to a $100,00 windfall. Let’s not forget hers and Bills flunkies that accepted blame and refused to expose them, they did time. There was a nice pot of gold at the end of the prison term.

    The money scandals, sex cover ups, destruction of opponents reputations. It’s all there ! Past candidates have lost elections for a lot less !

    Yes, if people vote for her, it will be a first. The first time people voted for a “criminal”. There were others with shady pasts but none at this outrageous level.

    1. But she’ll be good for El Paso when she dissolves the border in her first 100 days in office. HACEP is already gearing up for her and has pledged to make El Paso a leader in public housing which, of course, is also good news for Woody, Ike and Bobby.

      What a future a Clinton presidency holds for us!

  6. she has consistently lied throughout her careers in and out of politics. she was fired on hill as a “lying attorney”; she lied about Benghazi; she lied about her hubby and his affairs; she is lying now about her emails. my concern is that she will be indicted by the AG as soon as she gains the nomination then without a flinch VP Biden will be the “savior” of the party. Why do you think he didn’t run? This two party system is corrupt and it is privately owned non-profit. Imagine that. And the people think all the parties are a government entity. Only in lying, cheating, and scandal. that is their common ground.

  7. Trump is going to win. It will be a shock to communities like El Paso, but he is pulling in people who have disengaged in politics plus a lot of middle class voters who feel both parties ignore them. After Hil gets the nomination, the feel the Bern crowd will vote Indy for Johnson. So will the legalize pot crowd (although most of them are also Bernie supporters). Hil will be left with SEIU, prominent liberals, banking industry execs, lobbyists, the open border crowd and folks that want free stuff. That won’t be enough.
