Nancy Pelosi advises it’s ‘time to move on from Hillary Clinton’s emails’
Not "seriously loony" according to GQ

Maybe we have to elect Hillary Clinton to find out what’s in her emails. Or maybe the whole kerfuffle “it is much ado about something,” which implies the opposite of her intended message.

Either way, Nancy Pelosi — a woman who was once (shudder!) two heartbeats away from the presidency — expressed the opinion on Thursday that “we have to move on from this,” referring to the ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of State.

Pelosi wasn’t clear about why she thinks it’s time to move on when new revelations emerge almost daily. She also seems untroubled about Clinton’s changing story about her understanding of the system of classification used by government officials with top security clearance.

On the subject of Clinton’s answers to Matt Lauer’s questions at Wednesday’s Commander in Chief Forum, Pelosi opined, “I think she handled that … very well,” adding:

What she did was not something that endangered our national security. She said she shouldn’t have done it that way — that raises questions, which is unfortunate. But as I have said, it is much ado about something, but too much ado about it.

Hillary Clinton is in no way… We have to move on from thisd. I know of what I speak about classification, how careful we all are about not even acknowledging something that we may have learned in a classified setting, and I do not think Hillary Clinton did that.

There is no way Pelosi or anyone else, including Clinton, can say with absolute certaint that her use of a homebrew server didn’t endanger the nation’s security. In fact, it did, according to the FBI’s most recently released report, which indicates that “messages Clinton sent to aides were compromised by hostile foreign actors.”

All of this amounts to so much whistling past the graveyard coming from a woman whose retirement from public service is long overdue. Speaking of “time to move on.” The Democratic Party has enough to be embarrassed over without having this aging dim bulb as a spokeswoman.
