Courtesy of TPM:

Hillary Clinton responded to the news that former FBI Director James Comey used a personal email address for official business by re-phrasing a classic meme of the Trump administration: But her emails!

In a report released Thursday, the Department of Justice inspector general found that Comey and other FBI officials used personal email addresses for official business. The IG probe, ironically, examined the FBI’s handling of the probe into Clinton’s own use of a private email server.

Clearly the fact that the former Director of the FBI who dogged Clinton for her personal email use and was doing the very same thing is enough to make Hillary’s eyes roll back in her head. 

However, I think that Hillary was actually showing some restraint with this tweet.

Because the report also points out something else which should exasperate her even further.

Even a former Republican, who certainly has no love for the Clintons, could not help but notice the elephant in the room.

Yeah, no shit!

I heard some pundit on a cable show say in response to Clinton’s tweet, that she should get over it.

And do you know what? She does not EVER have to get over it. 

The fact that the election was stolen from her is no longer debatable, it was!

It took the Russians, working with the Trump campaign, assisted by Facebook, and with a final Hail Mary pass from Jim Comey to snatch it away, but that is what happened. 

And Hillary Clinton is allowed to be pissed off about that until her dying day. 

Just like, I would argue, that Al Gore gets to be pissed off about having the 2000 election stolen from him until his final day on this planet. 

In fact, Democrats, in general, should be just as pissed off as Hillary and Al about BOTH of these stolen elections. 

And that anger should motivate us to turn out in greater numbers for every election from this day forward. 

Remember, there are more of us than there are of them, and elections cannot be stolen when our turnout is huge. 

So rather than sit around and bitch about the past, let’s make goddamn sure that history will never again repeat itself. 

We owe that to Hillary Clinton. We owe that to Al Gore. We owe that…to ourselves.

Update: Here’s a good point from Rachel Maddow.

Yeah. why was that?

    I turn out for every election, but an honest question to you, Gryph. Given the history that you correctly cite, insert gerrymandering and an electoral college that does not vote the will of the citizenry, is it no surprise that people just throw up their hands? 2000 was a real eye opener for me; unfortunately there’s plenty who have lost all hope in this “democracy” and in a country that used to be the best. They have every right to think so.

    I. for one, did not fly nor wear anything stars and stripes today in honor of Flag Day, and why would I. Trump’s BD? Maybe I should have, “a year closer to death!,” but that’s not my MO. I do not fear, but my kids and grandkids are screwed long after I’m gone. I hope your daughter made it safely!

      I hear you. And I understand.

      However always keep in mind that they want us to throw up our hands and give up.

      That is the next best thing to convincing us to vote for their candidate, and I will never give them that satisfaction.

      My job is to cheerlead for democracy, and hopefully inspire people to take their right to vote seriously.

      As for my daughter, well she is now in Alaska and only a handful of hours away.

      When she finally arrives everything will be right in the world again.

        I never say die, Gryph, but I DO get tired of it all!

        Traveling to see my (RIP) parents, my Dad would watch the clock, do the math, and berate me for not doing the speed limit..
        Soooo, I began to lie about what time I left. HAH!
        Happy Father’s Day!

          Daughter arrived at 9:25 PM.

          So all is good.

            Happy Father’s Day Jesse. Enjoy your time to*get*her…Peace

    Imagine, just imagine, how hard Putin and his KGB tried to hack into Hillary Clinton’s SoS email server. They would have been working 24/7 for years, and for years of sweating over their computers the KGB got jack shit from Hillary Clinton.

    Then along comes Trump and invites the Russians into the Oval Office and personally HANDS them highly secret Israeli intelligence!

    I need to hear from Hillary Clinton about Putin and North Korea- and while we’re at it, let’s be sure to reeducate Democratic politicians and others suggesting that Hillary should go away and knit. No, no and no! Drag out all those top-tier Democrats and put them to work, Bill Clinton needs to say that Miss Lewinsky was a consenting adult and she doesn’t need slavering reporters constantly speaking her name in the hope of ratings, and Barack and Michelle Obama and Joe Biden have been resting long enough. They should all be making a noise about now.

    And fuck Bernie Sanders and every single member of his Ron Paul cult.

      Did I read that Bernie will try again 2020? For pete’s sake, old man, just give it a rest, turn on The Price Is Right and try to out guess contestants.

      I suspect that Bernie Sanders does not regret that he benefitted from the Russian interference as well. He’s never spoken out about how Russians told Facebook lies about Hillary Clinton; in fact, he peddled them to his naive supporters. I’m glad that the Democratic Party finally made it clear that real Democrats are welcome not fake ones willing to don donkey ears to get a nomination.

    Yes. Comey fucked Hillary over because he didn’t want her as boss. He thought working under Trump was going to be a cakewalk, not a fucking Hitler reincarnation. Thanks a lot you dumbass. You don’t deserve to be lauded for books you write or anything. We are in deep shit here in America and Kim Jung Un and Putin and China are lapping up the rewards as Donald gives our things away for free. And his fucking dumbass cult followers kiss his ass on social media each day as they celebrate that HItler is being channeled through this disgusting creature occupying the white house. And the like of Huckabee Sanders will see hell for excusing Trump for seperating children from parents. The America story keeps getting worst and worst.

    So two wrongs make a right?

    Bitch McConnell is limbering up his tongue!

    So this morning the Orange Anus called his favorite little Himmlers over at Faux Nooze and said some things.


    “1.) Trump says he wants “his people” to treat him the same way North Koreans treat dictator Kim Jong-un.

    “He’s the head of the country — and he’s the strong head, don’t let anyone think anything different,” Trump said during an interview with Fox News’ Steve Doocy. “He speaks and his people sit up in attention. I want my people to do the same.””

    You can add Merrick Garland to your list of Al Gore and Hillary Clinton.

    Comey was asked why he didn’t bring up the the investigation on trump/russians since he brought up Hillary on the View.

    he gave some lame answer that he didn’t bring it up because he couldn’t comment on an ongoing investigation.
