Hillary Got BUSTED In A HUGE Lie About Emails On Live TV – Now She Says She ‘Short-Circuited’

Millennials who were in diapers the last time the Clintons were in the White House may not remember, but for many voters, the memory of President Bill Clinton displaying his lawyerly skills in response to a question before a Grand Jury remains definitive of his character and his ability to wriggle out of circumstances that would destroy the reputation and credibility of any other public figure.
In fact, just typing the words “it depends…” brings the full quote to the top of any Google search: “It depends on what the definition of “is” is.”
While most people would have crept away from public life in embarrassment after revelations of lurid details of sexual liaisons in the Oval Office with an intern young enough to be his daughter, Bill Clinton smirked at the camera, seemingly pleased with his cleverness.
The public may have agreed, as his approval rating remained high.
Fast forward to the 2016 Democrat convention where the older and noticeably more frail former president wove a touching love story to “humanize” candidate Hillary Clinton, waxing poetic about their encounters at Yale Law School.
Mrs. Clinton may have attended classes with her husband, but she has proved this week that she is not in the same class with him when avoiding the truth.
Nearly 18 months after it was learned that she secretly set up a private, at-home server to conduct all email correspondence while serving as Secretary of State, and after extensive investigations by both the Inspector General and the FBI found her action constituted gross negligence, Mrs. Clinton continues to claim that she did nothing wrong.
This in itself would be noteworthy, given the findings of the two reports and the public “non-indictment” excoriation of Clinton by FBI Director James Comey, but in the interview with Wallace, Clinton lied about… lying.
When presented with direct quotes from Comey’s testimony to Congress, Clinton went where even her husband had not dared, and claimed Comey had exonerated her.
In a statement that left the veteran reporter agape and earned a “4 Pinocchios” rating from the Washington Post, Clinton claimed, “Director Comey said my answers were truthful…”

Clinton also claimed that she’s never sent or received an email marked classified:

Liberal site, Politifact gave it a rare “Pants on Fire” rating, but in true Clintonian fashion, she told supporters the next day that she had merely “short-circuited” and had been referencing her interview with the FBI at the conclusion of its investigation – an interview that Comey did not conduct or attend and which was neither recorded nor under oath.
Sometimes, you just have to sit back and admire their… nerve.
