After using $7M of America’s hard-earned tax dollars
to find no wrong-doing by Clinton in the Benghazi attacks,
the GOP is now just as relentless in trying to find a prosecutable crime
for the way Clinton handled her emails
while she was Secretary of State.
Republicans remain quiet to this day about that.
we clearly have a right-wing double standard going on
and it’s time to change the rules of the game.
It’s time to call out Republicans for the same “criminal”
offenses for which they claim Clinton is guilty.
A multiple tie for first place in the ‘Demon Department,’
with hundreds being a very close second
‘Republican back stabber,’
Republican Trey Gowdy called out for questionable email/server use

David Brock with Correct The Record previously issued an open letter to GOP headhunter Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC). That’s the same Trey Gowdy who spent two years and most of that $7M trying to unsuccessfully pin Clinton for Benghazi crimes. Turns out Gowdy, who is also spear-heading the Clinton email allegations, has some email issues of his own. Back in 2015, Zaid Jilani with AlterNet reported:
Dear Chairman Gowdy:
I noted with interest your public demand that Secretary Clinton turn over her personal email server, presumably so that the committee can access some 30,000 Clinton emails deemed to be strictly private and beyond the reach of the government.
This Orwellian demand has no basis in law or precedent.
Every government employee decides for themselves what email is work-related and what is strictly private.
There is no reason to hold Secretary Clinton to a different standard
except partisan politics.
But since you insist that Clinton’s private email be accessed,
I’m writing today to ask you and your staff to abide by the same standard you seek to hold the Secretary to by releasing your own work-related and private email and that of your staff to the public.
While I realize that Congress regularly exempts itself from laws that apply to the executive branch,
I believe this action is necessary to ensure public confidence in the fairness and impartiality of your investigation.
Thank you for your consideration.
