John Boehner Hints At A Criminal Investigation Into Hillary Clinton Over Her Email Server

Boehner-proud

In a statement about Hillary Clinton turning over her email server, Speaker of the House John Boehner suggested that Republicans want a criminal investigation into the Democratic frontrunner.

Boehner responded to Clinton turning over her email server by saying, “It’s about time. Secretary Clinton’s previous statements that she possessed no classified information were patently untrue. Her mishandling of classified information must be fully investigated.”

John Boehner has a troubled relationship with the truth, yet he had the nerve to call Hillary Clinton a liar.

Republicans remain so terrified of Hillary Clinton that they are willing to abuse the power of their congressional majority in an attempt to destroy her run for the White House. This is far from the first time that a Republican House majority has abused their powers to target the Clintons. Congress investigated the Clintons for both Whitewater and the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

According to the GAO, the independent investigations and partisan digging cost taxpayers millions of dollars. Boehner’s House is repeating the failed history of the Republican past. House Republicans have already wasted millions of dollars investigating Benghazi, and they will waste millions more investigating for Sec. Clinton’s emails.

The truth is that House Republicans are wasting the taxpayers’ money on investigations that are designed to cost Hillary Clinton the 2016 election. If Hillary Clinton were not the Democratic frontrunner, Republicans would not be investigating her emails.

The media tends to fall back on a tone of same old Clintons when they discuss stories like her emails, but Boehner’s comments are evidence that Republicans are also falling back into their same old pattern of wasting taxpayer resources on schemes to get the Clintons.

Judging from Republican witch hunts past, they will spend years looking for a smoking gun that doesn’t exist, make tons of bogus claims, and promptly forget the whole thing after Election Day 2016.

  1. Treason 47, treason 47

    How about we continue to investigate Walker, and you too Boehner, how about the cocaine on McConnell’s daddy-in-law’s boat?

  2. …I KNOW!!! Let’s investigate the most corrupt SOB to ever serve himself at the taxpayers expense…the Boner himself…

  3. EVERYONE knows they were not classified when they were sent. That’s the way it works. She got mail. It was from people who sent their ideas to her unsolicted. She turned over immediately any mail that might be of importance or might need to be designated as “classified” in the future if the ideas were accurate – to the people who do the classificatons.

    Some incoming were decided to be classified and removed at the time. Some were decided to be classified long after she left office due to the insanity of the RWNJs after the frontrunner.

    By Fed law – the executive, the official (which was her) gets to decide what is personal and what is work related. State said she was within the letter and intent of the laws.

    Personally, I get a kick out of her mail. She is so freaking smart and witty. Santa, her hairdressers last name was a big deal. Who is Hillary’s secret code name “Santa”?

    Watergate level hair appointment from the people who once investigated her CAT Socks.

  4. Yawn
    In a statement Tuesday, State Department spokesperson John Kirby noted that the two e-mails determined to have contained top secret material were “not marked as classified” when they were sent between State Department employees and ultimately forwarded to Clinton.
    The two e-mails, from 2009 and 2011, were identified before they were made public as part of the department’s monthly releases of Clinton e-mails. “While we work with the Director of National Intelligence to resolve whether, in fact, this material is actually classified, we are taking steps to ensure the information is protected and stored appropriately, Kirby said

  5. 1) It was not classified when sent.
    2) Only 1 IG is saying it should be retroactively classified (of one agency, that historically wants to consume all the government on anything even tangentially ‘intelligence’ related, CIA Uber Alles!)
    3) She didn’t send or create it, so did not have pre-knowledge of its content.
    4) It was not marked as anything that might have suggested anything. Maybe the sender should have been a fortune-teller but thathas nothing to do w/HRC.

    But, facts have nothing to do with Thugs, media and Hillary haters pushing this false narrative. So expect it to never die.

  6. So someone from the so-called media should ask: “How many jobs will this create Mr. Boehner as you promised many years ago to do?” Yeah, thought so…

  7. Another Jason E. Liberal attack on the truth!
    How this guy has a job is uncertain. Nothing short of a political HACK!!
    4 dead in Beng.? O.K. with you?
    Top secrets being shared with the Russians…O.K. with you?

    This country has had enough abuse from the Clintons!
    Million donated to the Clinton money laundering operation, by countries who practice sex slavery..O.K. with you.
    Your fools…Wake up

  8. The Repukes investigated the Clinton’s for everything under the sun during their 8 yrs in the White House. Remember the Vincent Foster, travelgate, troopergate etc,etc… ad nauseum!!!!

  9. Over 3000 died on 911
    What fuking secrets shared with Russia
    The United States practice sex slavery which was ratified by republicans when they refuse to sign a treaty preventing sex slavery.
    You are an fuking idiot dumbass

  10. Oh djchefron, how sad you are.
    You probably think Planned Parenthood does a service when they dismember little lives?

  11. Oh Pat. How come it was OK when Bush sat by and watched 3000 people die in the TOWERS, when he had been advised to beware of an air attack, and blew it off? How about the EIGHTEEN embassy attacks and numerous deaths while he was POTUS. You and your party are full of crap. The Clinton Foundation has nothing to do with Hillary’s jobs or her campaign. It is a separate entity. Just because your party coordinates and governs due to their nameless donors, does not mean Dems are evil. In fact, the country does way better under Democratic leadership. Do a little real research instead of relying on Beck, Newsmax, and Fox. You’ll sleep better.

  12. Dumbass Planned Parenthood saves life’s with cancer screening, men’s healthcare, STD testing and birth control. Only 3% of what they do are abortions which is a constitutional right
    How does it feel to go though life as an idiot

  13. It is obvious that you don’t care about the 3,000+ who died on 09/11 because of fu**ing Bush, or the thousands that died in Iraq because of fu**ing Bush, or the numerous people who died at facilities, (embassies, posts, etc.), under fu**ing Bush!! Yes, it was a tragedy that 4 people died, but compared to what happen in the 8 years under fu**g Bush, it doesn’t even come close!!! You are one sad, pathetic loser!!!

  14. Dude, you sound like this idiot I ran into on Twitter.

    Here’s the thing…djchefron is right. Only 3% of what PP does is abortions. So, that leaves 97% of what they do for other things, like birth control, STD testing, men and women’s health care and cancer screening. You fools are so up in arms about the 3% that you hate that you’re more then willing to throw the baby overboard and let it drown even though PP does far more good then harm.

    Now to the topic at hand: OK, what more do they want from her? She’s giving them the E-Mail server… what’s next, she has to kiss the feet of the Republicans for doing the ‘right thing’? This is a witch hunt and while they’re playing Salem, she’s still on a roll with her campaign and there is the Socialist Elephant they want to avoid as well.

  15. What happened to his lawsuit against the President and the impeachment hearings? All they do is blow smoke out of their a$$es. This is just a another Hillary witch hunt and Bernie is slowing gaining in the polls right under their noses.

  16. This walking bag of excrement, Boehner, has nothing. Oh, he can have more ‘monkey trial’ show hearings with idiot Republicans hyperventilating and making even greater asses out of themselves.
    Since HRC is now a private citizen, she doesn’t even have to appear. I hope she tells this gaseous waste to go pound sand.

  17. Great news, Switzerland lifted sanctions on Iran, saying they endorse the deal and are happy with it (of course they probably are holding a lot of Iran’s money) folks the spigot is open, it is going to be hard to overturn this deal.
    I guess Schumer is crying in his beer.

  18. Another Pat Jones teabagger/conservative attack on the truth. This is nothing more than an underhanded Republican ploy, an attempt to win 2016. Cheating is the only way these fools can win.

  19. Leaving a reply to Pat Dipshit.
    How this guy has a job is uncertain. Nothing short of a political HACK!!
    Actually Mr. Easley has an honest job- unlike you.

    4 dead in Beng.? O.K. with you?

    Hardly, Over 4 hundred dead in similar circumstances under Republicans- not a peep from you and yours.

    Top secrets being shared with the Russians…O.K. with you?
    Nope- but then that didn’t happen.

    This country has had enough abuse from the Clintons!
    What abuse? There has been none.

    Million donated to the Clinton money laundering operation, by countries who practice sex slavery..O.K. with you.
    Bullshit.

    Many millions more donated to Republicans of all stripes by child rapists and Mass Murderers- not a peep out of you and yours.

    I look forwards to the day when Hillary takes her Oath of Office- for the second time.

  20. Pat Dipshit-
    How Pathetic You Are!

    Where was this concern for ‘little lives’ when Bu$h and his cronies invaded Iraq? Many little lives were destroyed under horrible circumstances then.

  21. The campaign responds to the noise. Thanks as always to Jen for cutting through the bull.

    “The bottom line: Look, this kind of nonsense comes with the territory of running for president. We know it, Hillary knows it, and we expect it to continue from now until Election Day.

    It’s okay. We’ll be ready. We have the facts, our principles, and you on our side.”

  22. It doesn’t appear that our government treats politicians the same based on their party leanings. In 2007 all of the Bush administration was using a private RNC e-mail server, and they “lost” 22 million e-mails during a justice department investigation. That was illegal too, but the Bush administration just chalked it off as bad adherence to policy of using a non-governmentally secured server. No criminal charges were attempted against the Secretaries of State, Defense, and others for using a private e-mail server involving sensitive or secret governmental activities, and this was all during a Congress designated war.

    22 million e-mails lost on a private e-mail server! Allegations against Clinton for 35,000 e-mails pale in comparison.

  23. Since Boehner and the other bags of swamp gas are on ‘vacation’, he probably started drinking at 7AM or never stopped from the night before.
    He usually is blotto by 4-5 PM other days. Just ask former congressman Bob Ney …and HE was a Republican from Ohio. He knows the dirt about the drunk.

  24. PA’LEESE….!!!!…lady…man…boy…girl…IT…WHATEVER You May be..!!!!!….Take a Chill Pill to bring an Iota of Sanity Back to your brain……!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!….GO HILLARY….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. He’s not sad, he is posting factual information and you, you scab are nothing but a lost idiot in a forest of teabaag stupidity.

  26. She is too ingrained to understand that Prescott Bush, the Grand Daddy of “W” founded Planned Parenthood.

    This is how far the world has turned with the right wing.

  27. Mark Twain predicted our current GOP when he wrote:

    “Anger/Hatred does more harm to the vessel in which it’s stored…
    Than to anything on which it is poured”

    The GOP are seriously harming themselves.
    With their negative target on Bashing…
    They never have to speak of how they would improve America!

  28. Boehner likes drama, and he creates it where there is none, and his stupid foolish followers join in.

    He can take regular protocol and turn it into a conspiracy. He is a rat’s a**.

  29. I knew the moderators wouldn’t have the nads to actually post a comment comprised of nothing but facts. We sure don’t want to post truths that will debunk the bovine excrement currently littering all the page.

  30. If my life were at risk, such as the Benghazi situation, I’d want to know, for fact, my government will come to my aid. I don’t want to be left wondering will they or won’t they. Those emails can go a long way reassuring people they won’t be considered collateral damage.

  31. I agree with you, Pat. So just call me Mawpuffdipshit…lol. Some people are bound and determined to bend over backwards farting rainbows and lollipops to make her bovine excrement palatable.

  32. Dumbass in case your lizard brain forgot
    Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US was the President’s Daily Brief prepared by the Central Intelligence Agency and given to U.S. President George W. Bush on Monday, August 6, 2001. The brief warned of terrorism threats from Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda 36 days before the September 11, 2001 attacks.
    Over 3000 died

    Your cod piece wearing dummy response
    Ron Suskind, George W. Bush and the Aug. 6, 2001, PDB

    Bush to briefer: “All right. You’ve covered your ass, now.”

    Another idiotic post from you and I will ban you

  33. Moongrim. Do not forget our Weapons dealing starting with Weapons for Hostages, Iran-Contra or the Beirut Truck bombing of ’83.

  34. JohnyWonk, Could you find a Link for this:

    “In 2007 all of the Bush administration was using a private RNC e-mail server, and they “lost” 22 million e-mails during a justice department investigation.

    Great Information…Pubs think this E-Mail Attack will Sink HRC for sure!
    They’re grasping at straws…so desperate!

  35. Greedy Opposition Party of Pseudo-Conservative Sociopathic Psychotics. GOPPCSP!

    I call them Donkey Holes, which is kinda funny, as they are as far removed from an elephant as one can get.

    Grand Old Party? Democratic Party is 2500 yrs older.
    An elephant never forgets? Sounds like a threat in response to an imagined slight.

    I’m Taurus, & I’m a Democrat, & I am STUBBORNLY opposed to injustice, anywhere, against anyone.

  36. Not near so far bent over than the anti-hillary crowd screaming like a little girl over the notion of her inevitable election.

  37. Really? You do have specifics, or are you just P.O.’d that “conservatives” are nothing but failures (i.e., need to cheat to “win”) at this political brinkmanship game they began in January of 2009.

    Out smarted and out-classed.

  38. Please has anyone making these post watched the news.If she did nothing wrong why not hand over the emails when they asked? why clean them all out. Republicans are sorry for letting them all get away with all the illegal stuff get some back bone GOP.
