For a number of months, this whole e-mail thing simply didn't make sense to me. Then I sat down and really thought about it.
There was Plan A, which was dirt-simple....after getting the State Department job wrapped up at the Democratic Convention....the inner circle of Hillarys made this wise decision. They would ensure that after four years....she'd walk away, and no idiot would be to touch her emails while in this significant job.
Hillary would be able to later claim she just know the rules, and this would allow her to sanitize her emails so the public wouldn't read everything.
My humble guess is that after she walked away....two or three members of the inner circle sat down for three weeks and breezed through 20,000 emails that she received or sent over a four-year period. It would be a crappy job, but you'd be looking for certain topics that just weren't going to be allowed in a public situation.
All of this would have worked....had they stayed on plan "A". A month away from taking the job....probably around late November....she sent the people's names over to Obama's team that she was bringing in. Sid Blumenthal was on the list. The Obama team said "no".
Why was Sid on the list? When you look at her resume....she is the weakest individual to hold the job in 100 years. Sid was there to guide her....read messages....and offer advice. Without Sid, she was not going to successfully carry out the job.
So, a month later....she tried to hire Sid again....as a contractor. That failed too.
So, Sid was hired by the Clinton Foundation. But here's this new problem.....Sid holds NO security clearance. How would Sid read the messages and be able to do his secret job? So the inner circle told members of the office to occasionally cut and paste classified onto the messages sent to the unclassified Hillary personal account. 1,700 total messages that are a problem now.
All of this episode now.....created by the fact that the White house simply did not want Sid Bllumenthal around, with a security clearance. In a way.....they scripted this and knew precisely what she would be doing.
If they had hired Sid....she would have stuck with plan "A", and this mess presently would be a minor deal, with almost no FBI involvement. Now? I don't see how the President allows this to continue on without some charges coming up.
In a way, it's amusing. Here was a job that Hillary Clinton was absolutely unqualified for and it would normally make no sense to hire her. Yet, things fell into place and all she had to do for four years was fake people out.....get Sid to advise on what to say or do.....and it'd all pay off in the end. If she'd never gone to plan "B" on usage of the email server.....she'd be easily doing well and might be able to run a serious election.
