Asked if the assessment was done by the State Department, Clinton said, “No, the technical people who ran it. …” Hillary leads Donald Trump in a head-to-head matchup by just four points, which is pretty embarrassing.
And so at a town hall meeting that precisely coincided with Pope Francis’ arrival ceremony this week, Clinton revealed she is opposed to the pipeline project.
The State Department is at the center of the debate over the pipeline because it would cross the U.S.-Canada border and therefore needs a presidential permit to proceed (see Shale Daily, April 21, 2014; March 4, 2013).
Hillary Clinton allegedly barked at President Obama to call off his “f-king dogs” after it became obvious her private email server scandal wasn’t going to disappear.
It also raises the possibility of future embarrassing disclosures or evidence that she deleted work-related emails after first maintaining they were “personal“. “The Federal Bureau of Investigation is behaving like it’s above the law”. I didn’t give him an answer.
After all, State is trying Judge Sullivan’s patience: He told it this week to put more folks on the case of releasing the Clinton e-mails.
This poll, however, suggests the Clinton luck in the state may have worn out. And yet most pundits still consider her the prohibitive frontrunner to win the Democratic nomination and the presidency.
Clinton wants to follow up her opposition to Keystone with a more ambitious climate program that includes immediately launching negotiations toward a North American Climate Compact. She gets 43%, with 25% for Senator Bernie Sanders and 18% for Vice President Joe Biden. “The idea that it did is based largely on a series of disconnected actions by supporters of Clinton, mostly in the months between Obama’s reaction to the Jeremiah Wright story and the Democratic National Convention”. If they can’t count on Clinton to be honest, they can’t count on her to keep her word about income inequality, jobs, health care, and the environment.
I have no idea what, if anything, investigators will find on Clinton’s server, but the fact that she refused for months to turn it over to investigators suggests that there’s something on it she’d rather not be made public.
