Hillary Addresses Email Investigation in Daytona Beach (Video)

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 5:00 pm



Hillary Clinton addressed the re-opened (yes, re-opened, lefties!) FBI investigation relating to her emails at a rally in Daytona Beach today, calling Director Comey’s announcement of the re-opening of the investigation “unprecedented” and “deeply troubling.” Video is below.

This is the quickly coalescing narrative among leftists and Big Media (but I repeat myself). Stories are already touting the fact that partisan hack Loretta Lynch advised against Director Comey sending his letter to Congress. Lost in all this partisan analysis is that Democrats nominated someone who was under federal investigation for most of her campaign. They can’t really be shocked when the FBI becomes involved again shortly before the election.

Above: Hillary Clinton thinks it’s all very funny

As Donald Trump properly notes (did I just say that?), Hillary has “nobody to blame but herself.”

I have selected the relevant 90 seconds for you, which will play when you hit the play button.

Now, I’m sure that some of you may have heard about a letter that the FBI director sent out yesterday. [BOOS] Well, if you’re like me, you probably have a few questions about it. It is pretty strange — it’s pretty strange to put something like that out with such little information right before an election. In fact, in fact, it’s not just strange, it’s unprecedented and it is deeply troubling because voters deserve to get full and complete facts. And so, we’ve called on Director Comey to explain everything right away, put it all out on the table. Right?

Now, of course, Donald Trump is already making up lies about this. He is doing his best to confuse, mislead, and discourage the American people. Ah think it’s time for Donald Trump to stop fearmongering, to stop disgracing himself, to stop attacking our democracy. We can’t let him get away with this, can we?

How it is “attacking our democracy” to point out that a major party candidate for the presidency is under federal investigation with 10 days to go in the election?

  1. what was that line popular in madison ‘this is how democracy works’ she could only scrounge 500 in a predominantly african american venue.

  2. I thought the line was “this is what democracy looks like.”

  3. so stinkypig’s saying the failmerican fbi is trashy sleazy corrupt and wholly untrustworthy?

    on this we agree

  4. Mindful that every particle of matter and every quantum of energy that exists now existed at the beginning of the universe and will exist until the end of the universe, I have come to take the long view about this election and worry instead that I bought grated cheese and spaghetti sauce but no spaghetti.

  5. now that’s sloppy, do you keep a list?

    narciso (d1f714)

  6. i stock up on pasta cause of it’s a staple and i never buy spaghetti sauce cause there’s so much you can do with pasta with just oil and herbs and whatever you have at hand

    but that doesn’t help you right now in your current pickle

  7. The most important thing I learned when visiting Italy is that spaghetti sauce is as Italian as chop suey.

    But you are allowed to use it on stuff that is not spaghetti.

  8. So if I understand the media narrative properly, it’s attacking our Democracy, subverting our cherished political system, inspiring violence, etc. for Donald Trump to say “the election is rigged”. At the same time, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announcing that they’re re-opening an investigation into a woman who has been under investigation for her entire candidacy is an attempt to rig the election… which is also subverting our cherished political system, inspiring violence, etc.

    Do I understand the message being sent properly?

  9. It is pretty strange — it’s pretty strange to put something like that out with such little information right before an election.

    No, Maudie.

    It’s ‘pretty strange’ to have a secret server – or is it servers- in the first place, which is the genesis of all your problems.

  13. What should really worry conservative ideologues is not if Maudie wins but what to do with the millions who vote for Trump. There’s still a little of the ‘Goldwater Girl’ in her. My own 85 year old mother, a ‘GG’ in ’64 who kept a very flat can of Goldwater Ginger Ale in the den for years. They hide but don’t shake some of those core beliefs.

    Even if 10% or 20% of Trump voters drift away, there’s still that pragmatic core that’s rejected ideological conservatism in its present guise for the pragmatists. And there certainly wasn’t any pragmatic candidates aside of Trump this cycle. Especially from Texas.

  14. no she quickly took to heart the preachings of sdser carl oglesby and alinsky, there isn’t any remaining trace of auh2o, if ever there was, like joan didion’s brief stint at the national review, or garry wills for that matter,

  16. I think that these emails are intended to sucker us into believing she is guilty, only to find out its ten thousand emails of nonsense and dick pics. A big juicy nothing burger.

    The world is indeed upside down when I trust WikiLeaks more than the FBI

  17. It’s “all factored in”…

  18. well their trackrecord has been lacking of late, now bhaara and the nypd seem to have developed this evidence,

  19. A letter that the FBI Director just happened to send out.
    He just sent it out!
    I think it might have been addressed to Santa Claus. Or maybe to Aunt Mabel!

    Even though she only deleted and hid emails about yoga class and her daughter’s wedding, she’s totally freaked out about the context of the investigation. That’s really weird.
    If you’re absolutely certain that you don’t have any weed hidden in the glovebox, then when the cop asks you if he can check the glovebox for weed, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about — right? (LOL)

    Hillary knows that the FBI can’t publicly disclose info about an ongoing investigation. But she also knows that the LIVs don’t know that.

    Really? You learned that? Because I’d be prepared to hear that tomato-based sauces are about as Italian as chop suey, but what else can’t you use on pasta?!?! Or on a carpacciio of Impala? Olive oil? Butter? Basil?

    Is this your final answer, Kishnevi?

    And who is this international body what determines what I am not allowed.

  22. @14. Don’t kid yourself. Once in, it’ll leak out in some way, shape or form. I still see and hear it in my 85 year old GG. It’s ne reason she’s having a tough time this cycle- vote the party down ballot or go with the ol’GG in a pantsuit and split ticket. Her history, though, has been straight party line.

  24. I think marco polo introduced the noodle on the way back from china, but that’s a good 700 years of tradition, so I think we can consider it italian,

  25. The Italians told me. I assume they know about Italian food.
    They use plenty of sauces with pasta, some of them with tomato.
    But there’s no generic “spaghetti sauce”. Except the stuff in American supermarkets.

  26. yeah he introduced some noodle

  28. If I had to do it all over again, and I joined the nav, I’d be a cook. Navy cooks do more for this nation then all the special forces combined. Yeah, Ive had a few bad meals. But I can remember then, which should tell you something as I’ve eaten thousands of meals on ships. Only
    a few, a very few, were bad. I bunked with the food services officer in Carl Vinson. I wasn’t ships’ company but I learned within days my shipmate was a wizard. If you had a bad actor, he’d say, “Give him to me.” Maybe he wouldn’t be Sailor of the month but he’d be close.

    I wish I could go back and shake their hands.

  32. I have several spaghetti sauce recipes, but I’m only a “foodie” if I’m going to be cooking for other people too. When it’s only me, I don’t find it worth the bother.

    And I was going to apologize to Patterico for hijacking the thread but I think that talking about spaghetti is more pleasant than talking about Hillary.

    True story. Like anyone would have reason to doubt me. Sometime between VE and VJ day my uncle Tony, Ewe Ess Navy, is stalking the streets of Naples. Americans weren’t really popular. One of the ways they tried to express their disdain was to say, instead of “Americano,” to say “Merde de Cano.” Really fast, hoping no one would notice.

    Uncle Tony noticed. Boy, did he notice.

  40. Now Ms. “Can’t Recall” demands full timely disclosure.

    Back when it would have been a simple matter of 30,000 files on a memory stick, but instead she drags ass until the minute before U.S. Marshals are ready to kick in the door, then grudgingly dumps a truckload of boxes of unsearchable hardcopies, not so much.

  42. because voters deserve to get full and complete facts.

    So why don’t they show how many people are in that hastily assembled undisclosed echo chamber?

    In 2007, when Stompy McFoodstamp was on the trail, they sure as shooting showed how many fans he had in the audience.

    One of the classic examples of how Italian and Spanish are different is Spaghetti al Burro. No, it’s not spaghetti with a donkey, s**theads. It’s with butter. .But I can speak only for myself. After this election cycle, what the h3ll do I know? Maybe you people like your spaghetti with donkeys.

    Never combined the butter with the olive oil. It’s Ghost Busters scale crossing-the-streams level wizardry, in my book. But what the hey.

    Steve57 (0b1dac)

  46. yes yes al burro

    i ran across this when i went on my jewish spaghetti kick

    happyfeet (28a91b)

  47. The olive oil, the cloves of garlic, a few herbs, and you have pasta rapida.

    Or, something like it. And as long as you’re close you can’t be too far wrong.

    Steve57 (0b1dac)

  48. @46, it’s fitting your article mentions il Piemontese. And a Torino restaurant. Because my family is decidedly La Cucina Napoletana. I can do the butter thing, and in my head I know it’s in some sense Italian. But I just don’t feel it in my bones and deep down I think I’m making foreign food.

    No, Donald Trump was wrong here.

    She can blame Bill Clinton.

  51. Evan McMullin was on Meet the Press.

    He got asked a question about if he carried Utah would it help Hillary? He didn’t answer that the state ordinarily would vote overwhelmingly for the Republican and switching from Trump to McMullin doesn’t help Hillary (as Trump is claiming) – only a 3-way or 4-way vote split could help Hillary, and not even that because Hillary is polling second or third in all polls.

    He said Mitt Romney was not financing him – he’d like it but it didn’t happen? Doesn’t he know co-ordination is illegal?
