One thing that so many liberal politicians have just not learned no matter how many times people tell them is that there is always someone that either knows or can find out where they have buried the bodies.
Look for example back to the Hillary email situation. Hillsy thought that all of that was taken care of and buried, then her right hand’s husband got exposed as a pervert and all of those emails that we thought were missing happened to be on the laptop of a sicko.
2017 wasn’t exactly the best of years for Hillary Clinton, and that’s even taking into account the 2016 that she had.
However, the worst had to be over, right?
Alas, her old bête noire — the folks at WikiLeaks — made sure even that trifling wish would go unfulfilled.
In the latest bombshell sifted out of emails obtained by FOIA requests, it was revealed The New York Times would inform Hillary Clinton’s State Department on their publication schedule for stories involving “Cablegate,” the massive 2010 dump of diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks.
The emails, which were sent from Times national security reporter Scott Shane to former United States Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs Philip Crowley, were likely sent to give the State Department ample time to spin the revelations involving specific cables or to create diversions, WikiLeaks claimed.
The Times would give the State Department up to nine days warning when it came to publication, according to a tweet by WikiLeaks late Saturday night.

While this is certainly not the first time that Clinton or someone in her orbit was caught colluding with the press in general or the Gray Lady specifically, the tweet comes at a particularly bad time for Clinton. In fact, given the events of the past month, one can imagine the former Democrat standard-bearer spending her New Year’s Eve draining a bottle of moscato and listening to the Counting Crows’ “A Long December” looping on the Sonos.
First came the revelation that Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who led the investigation into Clinton’s emails and was part of Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, had been taken off the latter probe because of anti-Trump text messages he had repeatedly exchanged with his mistress while he was investigating Clinton. Strzok was also later revealed to have changed text in a draft statement by James Comey on the emails, altering a statement that Clinton was “grossly negligent” to instead read that she was “extremely careless.”
Then, late last week, it was revealed that emails marked as classified had been forwarded to Anthony Weiner’s unsecured laptop (which he was, um, not infrequently using for untoward purposes) by his now-estranged wife and top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
The roughly 2,800 “work-related” emails from Weiner’s laptop were made public after a lawsuit by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which called the release a “major victory.”
“Judicial Watch has forced the State Department to finally allow Americans to see these public documents,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.
“That these government docs were on Anthony Weiner’s laptop dramatically illustrates the need for the Justice Department to finally do a serious investigation of Hillary Clinton’s and Huma Abedin’s obvious violations of law.”
Oh, and then there was also the unverified report that Santa was using copies of “What Happened” as a replacement for coal this Christmas. Totally unverified, though; I’m sure the book is doing great as a non-habit forming sleep aid.
