See Elijah Cummings on Face the Nation today? Ha ha.. either he’s a complete moron, or he’s hoping we all are:
DICKERSON: The Republicans would say — you mentioned the e-mails had nothing to do with Benghazi, but they would say you can’t get to the information about Benghazi unless you know what the key person…
(CROSSTALK) [...was writing in her emails, which, naturally she's stonewalled against the Congress's right to see in its oversight capacity.]*
CUMMINGS: Well, keep in mind, keep in mind that Hillary Clinton has turned in tens of thousands of pages of e-mails, more than any other secretary in the history of our country, secretary of state in the history of country.
And keep in mind Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice have not turned in one page. So, we have a microscope over her entire tenure as secretary of state. It’s going to be interesting.
DICKERSON: It is indeed. Mr. Cummings, thank you so much for being with us.
The “microscope” line is particularly rich considering the emails in question (in fact, all emails the Congress and the public has ever been able to see from the former leader of one of our government’s most influential and impactful departments) are only known of and available after they’d been pried from her cold, dead server thanks to FOIA requests and, ahem, an FBI investigation. But anyway…
Point is though, why stop shy of criticizing Powell and Rice (mentions of either of whom, by the way, is a non sequitur)? Come to think of it, Mr. Cummings, that Lawrence Eagleburger musta had something pretty shady to hide considering we’ve never seen even one of his emails. Yea, and that Thomas Jefferson… probably got a lot of stuff stashed away on that server too.
Sheesh… the ends Hillary’s shills won’t go to in order to protect her.

*Who the hell knows if John Dickerson was trying to ask that… But if there existed actual reporters today and fewer shills for Hillary Clinton, that’d be a pretty logical thing to ask and we’d have heard it and had it answered a long time ago.
