On September 24, news broke that Jared Kushner and five other high-level White House officials were using private email servers to conduct official business. In any other administration, this news probably wouldn't be news at all. But during the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump claimed Clinton had broken the law, and he led chants of "Lock her up!" in front of crowds of thousands.
The hypocrisy of this administration, who knew there was no real scandal, who knew that there was no basis for all their hyperventilating. Republican members of Congress who politicized the deaths in Benghazi, which I thought was outrageous. Now, we’re finding, as with the latest revelations ― they didn’t mean any of it. It’s just the height of hypocrisy.
Pretty incredible to watch the same Republicans that attacked Hillary now defend Jared Kushner’s use of a private email.— Adam Parkhomenko (@AdamParkhomenko) September 25, 2017
It is something that if they were sincere about I think you’d have Republican members of Congress calling for an investigation. I haven’t heard that yet.
It just goes to the rank hypocrisy that this Trump campaign and now this Trump White House is engaged in. ... I worry about what it means for the lives of Americans.
Clinton has described her use of a private server as a "dumb mistake" but has called the resulting media firestorm, which may have cost her the Presidency, a "dumber scandal."
