Last week we learned that Hillary Clinton did not turn over all of her work related emails, despite claiming to have done so under oath. When asked about it by Chuck Todd on Meet the Press, Clinton did her best to dip, dodge, duck, dive and dodge.
But really, is anyone really surprised that Hillary would make a false statement under oath? Not if they have been following Hillary’s political career. Just take a look at this sampling of news from Hillary’s past that could have just as easily been written today:
“Hillary testimony was ‘factually false.’” – Rochester Sentinel, October 19, 2000.
“Mr. Ray disclosed parts of Mrs. Clinton’s 1995 deposition he now says are demonstrably false.” – NY Times, October 19, 2000.
“There is ‘substantial evidence’that First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton lied under oath in denying that she played a role in the 1993 White House travel office firings, independent counsel Robert W. Ray reported Thursday.” – LA Times, June 23, 2000.
“Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that [Hillary Clinton] — a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation — is a congenital liar.” – NY Times, January 8, 1996.
Perhaps it might be time to stop counting how many times Hillary has lied, and start the easier task of counting how many times she hasn’t.
