Shock: Top Hillary Clinton Aide Lied About Using Personal Email for Business With Reporters

As Luke Skywalker said to Darth Vader: "No... that can't be true. That's impossible!"

Longtime Hillary Clinton aide Philippe Reines repeatedly lied about using a personal email address to communicate with reporters, records show. Emails uncovered after Gawker successfully sued the State Department show that Reines regularly corresponded with reporters using a personal Gmail address, despite previously dismissing the suggestion as a "cockamamie theory," saying his personal email account "is about the last place I want to be emailing reporters or conducting work."

Gawker's initial request under the Freedom of Information Act was initially denied after the State Department claimed to have no record of Reines's correspondence with reporters. The emails, about 18,000 in total, are coming to light now thanks to a successful legal appeal.

Well it sure seems that Hillary and all of her aides are pretty determined that they will not produce any documents for anyone, whether legally compelled to do so or not.

Must be because they're so honest.

Oh, and if you didn't see that terrible SNL sketch with Hillary, it's below. I just saw it now.

It's terrible, and while it's true they didn't mention the email scandal, what are they going to do, realistically? Hillary gets to veto any jokes that cut too deep; I'm surprised she let them attack her (very gently) from the left, in being slow to realize she was against Keystone because environment and pro gay marriage because love.

I'm very surprised Hillary let SNL reference her drinking problem, given that she has such a problem with drinking.
