The RNC Files Four More Lawsuits Trolling for Clinton Documents

The State Department has released all of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's work related emails which have not revealed the smoking gun Republicans had hoped to find so, in their effort to dig up something, they've filed four more lawsuits for a total of six lawsuits.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) filed two initial lawsuits last week and an additional four lawsuits today all of which seek to force virtually every agency or organization Clinton has been affiliated with to hand over troves of documents.

One asks for communications between officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development and both the State Department and Clinton’s affiliate outside organizations, such as the Clinton Foundation. [...]

The third lawsuit asks for communication between the State Department staffers and the Clinton Foundation, as well as other Clinton-linked groups.

The final lawsuits asks for visitor logs for Clinton’s personal office and the State Department’s Diplomatic Reception Room as well as details about a program to fund the historic room’s renovation.

It seems clear, judging by the nature of the lawsuits they've filed, that the RNC is looking for evidence that the State Department or Secretary Clinton herself somehow illegally coordinated with the Clinton Foundation. The foundation, I would remind you, is a philanthropic public health charity that spends nearly 90 percent of its revenue on charitable missions that include abominable goals such as reducing childhood obesity.

It remains to be seen if the District Court of D.C. will entertain the RNC's politically-motivated fishing expedition which is clearly part of their grand plan for fighting Hillary Clinton in the general election.

I'm not convinced average voters will give a shit about Hillary Clinton's charitable foundation while Donald Trump is calling for physical violence. I'm not even convinced the media will spend a great deal of time covering this because so much of their time is already occupied broadcasting every single word that comes out of Trump's mouth.

You may have noticed that none of the lawsuits filed by the RNC over the past week mention Benghazi.

    Again I say, the term of art in the legal community for this sort of thing is “fishing expedition.”

    ….And watch Salon, DK, Lawyers, Guns and Money, and Alternet start up with more of their “Hillary is DOOMED/Going to Be Indicted!/Is a no-good b*#@t!” nonsense.

    I swear, I’ve never seen someone hammered so much (Obama being the exception). Hillary has had to deal with 20+ years of this s@#! and yet too many liberals believe that she really is corrupt thanks to the GOP’s poison.

      … and the Democratic party’s inability/unwillingness to call Republicans out on this bullshit.

    This is nothing more than White Water all over again. It starts with a land deal from the late 70s and ends up leap frogging to Travel Gate to File Gate to X, Y, & Z and eventually getting to Monica Lewinsky and nobody bothers to scream “WHAT IN THE HELL ARE WE DOING HERE?!?”

    • Scopedog

      The sad thing is to see comments on liberal sites that claim that there really was something going on in regards to Whitewater and that Hillary really did have Vince Foster killed…I swear, why do we keep letting the GOP put this bull out there?

      • Aynwrong

        With libs like these, who needs the GOP?

        Hey, have you been able to get onto the Bob & Chez Show blog site? I haven’t for several hours now.

        • Karen Marie

          The address looks the same but my old bookmark hasn’t worked in quite a while.

          • Aynwrong

            It came through. Appreciate you taking the time to look. Very cool on your part.

    How long before they slip a dimebag into her pocket and then pickpocket her to accuse her of dope possession?

    • Zen Diesel

      I am surprised they haven’t done so already. The RNC is proverbial clown that tries to ice skate uphill.

        I like that description…the visual is cracking me up!
