Here’s a new one: Hillary Clinton is, apparently, planning to start blaming President Barack Obama for her own email server problems.
Dick Morris, a Republican but former adviser to President Bill Clinton, has some choice insight about what the former First Lady must be thinking about her email scandal.
“From the Clinton point of view this is all a set up by Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett, the three of them,” Morris said. “Barack hates Bill, and Valerie and Michelle hate Hillary. And they are determined not to let Hillary be the next president. This is the gospel according to Clinton. Because they are worried they will compromise the accomplishments, they will triangulate like Bill and I did. I think they believe, and they are basically right, that in the world of Washington you can not have leak after leak after leak from the executive branch in a Democratic administration without the president letting it happen. And you don’t see any big investigation ‘oh we are naming a special prosecutor to see who leaked the facts the inspector general has.’
Morris added, “I think Obama is orchestrating this, not necessarily Barack Obama, but Michelle and Valerie and maybe Barack, but certainly with Barack’s knowledge. And that’s why Biden is going to announce in September—because they are determined to have Biden as the Democratic nominee because they are confident he will be the rubber stamp they want to succeed Barack. Now you know Biden could never beat Hillary, but Hillary could beat Hillary.”
It’s no overstatement that Hillary Clinton’s email snafu has dramatically hurt her chances at being the next President.
Just a few months ago, Clinton was being prepped for a so-called “coronation” run to the White House, due to her high poll numbers–but now, increasing numbers of people feel she’s untrustworthy; other candidates, like Bernie Sanders, have leapfrogged her in some polls; and she has had trouble keeping the lid on such a combustible story.
It remains to be seen whether or not the Clinton campaign will be able to put this story behind her, as she continues her presidential run, but it’s clear that there’s a lot more to this story than meets the eye.
