I was gloomy in the last post, but I see that the Clinton camp has a strategy for dealing with Emailghazi:
Hillary Clinton won’t be presiding over a soul-searching press conference or sitting down for a come-clean interview about her use of a private email address any time soon -- at least if everything goes according to her team’s plan.
The former secretary of state and her advisers have decided to adopt a time-tested Clintonian approach: take a concrete step to ease the pressure, then wait out the storm....
The Clintonites think this the story will die down, and then Hillary will answer questions. And perhaps:
An added benefit to the approach: the potential for Republicans to overreach and overreact while Clinton stays silent.
... And, right on cue, here's Reagan-era assistant secretary of defense Frank Gaffney, now speaking for a group he founded called the Center for Security Policy:
One other State Department official evidently violated this policy: [Hillary Clinton's] Deputy Chief of Staff, Huma Abedin. Ms. Abedin’s emails are of particular interest insofar as Huma has extensive ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. That’s the Islamist organization whose self-declared mission is “destroying Western civilization from within.”
The indispensable investigative group, Judicial Watch, has filed suit in federal court for access to these emails. It remains to be seen if they are provided and, if so, what they reveal about these ladies’ contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood -- and their damage-control concerning revelations about Huma’s connection to it.
Yup, this again. Even John McCain has said attacks like this on Abedin are a crock.
Oh, and over at Atlas Shrugs, Pam Geller adds the extra touch of crazy, identifying Abedin as follows:
Daughter of Saleha Mahmood Abedin, a pro-Sharia sociologist with ties to numerous Islamist organizations including the Muslim Brotherhood Longtime former employee of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, which shares the Muslim Brotherhood’s goal of establishing Islamic supremacy and Sharia Law worldwide
But wait -- Geller's not finished:
Further, it is striking that Huma Abedin was the only non-family member to have her own account on Clinton’s server. Atlas readers are long familiar with Abedin. I was one of the first to report back in 2007 on the rumors that were rampant of a very close, sexual relationship between the two which was even more disturbing considering Abedin’s Muslim Brotherhood ties....
Anthony Wiener was/is a beard, pure theater When Wiener was caught tweeting his pecker it caused nary a blip in the “marriage”. But the ruse was necessary for Clinton’s presidential run.
So who'll be the first Republican officeholder or state party official to post a link to this on Facebook?
