Could Hillary please start getting her lies straight?
Another day, another factual revelation that shows former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been less than honest with the American people.
At some point, it becomes tiresome to ask the same question over and over again. But Clinton leaves us no choice. How many times must she be caught lying before the current presidential campaign has come to an end?
Clinton had maintained, and in fact swore, that she had turned over all work-related emails from the private server she chose to use, in contravention of government secrecy and transparency laws. As it turns out, even this claim was untrue. At least one set of emails exists from 2009 that she hadn't turned over — between herself and David Petraeus, who was at that time running CENTCOM.
As the Associated Press put it, the emails "don't appear to deal with highly classified material ... but their existence challenges Clinton's claim that she has handed over the entirety of her work emails from the account."
That Clinton spent nearly six years hiding her email correspondence from Congress, the public, and the State Department is beyond dispute. And this is no small matter, as such concealment raises important questions about her honesty and fitness for higher office. The fact that she also mishandled classified information only adds to the problem.
