I was struck by the lack of evidence in the Aug. 17 column “How she lies, let me count the ways” by J. Peder Zane. Where is the evidence that any of the examples mentioned are “deliberate falsehoods” on her part?
Regarding the infidelity (and alleged infidelity) of her husband over the years, Hillary Clinton calling women who threatened her family and marriage “bimbos” is a fairly tame response. She likely thought they were that or worse. That spotlight should be on her husband and women involved in the scandal. Realistically, no one expected her to give these women a hug or high five.
The Benghazi and email episodes have been investigated and explored ad infinitum. She has said she made mistakes, and there are no charges by the FBI. Her critics are still parsing individual emails and testimony for the silver bullet to disrupt her campaign.
As stones are unturned, evidence leading to charges has escaped her persecutors.
Never miss a local story.
Finally, Zane goes back to 1978 and the “Whitewater” days to find evidence of lies. This information has been churned and investigated ad infinitum. Is this the best Zane can offer?
