Signs of Dem panic over Hillary (#1 -- with video)
Hillary Clinton’s spectacular lack of political skill, along with the trail of scandals that just won’t go away as they used in the heyday of quelling bimbo eruptions, is causing panic among Democratic Party insiders. You still have to use a seismograph, for the most part, because nobody wants to openly say that the empress has no clothes, and not just because the image itself is so horrifyingly difficult to get out of your mind. Hillary Clinton has always been ruthless in her treatment of people that become inconvenient.
Yet, the tension is showing. The latest example comes from Lanny Davis, a Demcorat operative and Hillary insider so affable that he was president of George W. Bush’s fraternity (DKE) at Yale, andbuddies up with conservative media figures. Lanny is not the kind of guy to get testy when dealing with a conservative host. Until yesterday, at least. Al Weaver of The Daily Caller summarizes:
Former Clinton White House special counsel Lanny Davis hung up on Newsmax TV host Steve Malzberg Friday after the host grilled him over Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
The Newsmax TV host opened up the interview by bringing up the fact that Clinton claimed that she never received a subpoena over her emails, even though Rep. Trey Gowdy revealed on Wednesday that Clinton did indeed receive one in March.
Davis went on the defensive immediately, telling Malzberg that Clinton was referring to not getting one prior to her giving her emails to the State Department.
“Why did Hillary say she never got a subpoena on CNN when there have been several subpoenas?” Malzberg asked initially.
In response, Davis started playing word games, in classic Clintonian fashion:
“Okay, she said she never got a subpoena in the context of a question of whether she had a subpoena prior to her delivering the emails to the State Department,” Davis responded. “That was the question she answered. A time specific answer, she had not gotten a subpoena at that time. I think she probably misunderstood that it would be interpreted this way.
There’s a problem here. Ian Hanchett of Breitbart reports:
Representative Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said Hillary Clinton actually had three subpoenas, two of which were sent before her server was wiped on Wednesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show.”
So Hillary destroyed records under subpoena. But Davis had to go on the attack toward Gowdy, and was rebuffed by Malzberg, who said that he didn’t care about Gowdy, the subject was Hillary. That is what then led to Davis hanging up after a bit more verbal sparring. Watch for yourself:
I would suggest that when the unflappable Davis can’t handle the heat, they are panicking at Chateau Hillary.
