According to Hillary Clinton, the belief that she’ll be facing any consequences over her State Department emails is something to laugh at. Apparently, her view of facing justice for a likely felony is a Republican fantasy.
First off, my fantasies involve tropical islands, drinks with rum in them, and women that look nothing like Hillary. I really wish she wouldn’t use words like “fantasy,” especially since her situation is very precarious, and in a very real way.
Still, that’s the word she used while speaking to Matt Lauer during an interview on TODAY. When asked about the Republican hope that she’ll wind up in cuffs, Clinton laughed.
“I know that they live in that world of fantasy and hope because they’ve got a mess on their hands on the Republican side. That is not going to happen,” said Clinton. “There is not even the remotest chance that is going to happen.”
Not long ago I discussed how Hillary believed she has nothing to worry about when it comes to the private server scandal she’s embroiled in with the FBI, and I clarified for her that she really does.
Between former aides that helped set up her home server becoming “devastating witnesses,” and a good deal of emails found to be considered top secret, and above, Hillary has in fact a great deal to worry about.
Still, Clinton believes that this investigation is wholly routine.
“It’s a security review. It is a security review,” she said to Lauer. “And there are lots of those that are conducted in our government all the time. And you don’t hear about most of them. You’ll hear about this one because, you know, because it does involve me.”
I’m not sure what part of private, unsecured email servers receiving emails at the highest levels of state secrecy is something our government conducts reviews of all the time. In fact, I would call that highly irregular, and I know many out there would call it “illegal.”
Will she likely see the interior of a prison? Likely not. She is a Clinton after all. Regardless, the idea that she won’t face consequences, especially in the likelihood she’s found guilty, is a unicorn riding a Harley made of bacon style fantasy in itself.
