Funny or Sad? State Dept. Says Snow Will Delay Final Release of Hillary Emails

Via The Hill:

The State Department on Friday sought to delay its final release of emails from Hillary Clinton’s personal server, blaming a massive snowstorm hitting Washington as well as an internal “oversight.”

In a court filing, the department asked a federal court to delay by a month the Jan. 29 deadline for it to release the last batch of roughly 55,000 pages of Clinton’s emails believed to be work-related.

A four year-old can lie better than that when trying to get away with something. Never underestimate federal officials’ belief in the gullibility of the American people. The pathetic excuse may have been more believable had they only asked for a few days, but the one month delay tipped their hand.

Also, it’s not as if this email thing just came up and the request for the release of the contents of Granny Pander’s private server caught them by surprise. They’re stalling to help her campaign, but Mrs. Clinton’s albatross is quickly morphing into a noose.
