White House: Now probe Hillary email scandal, Clinton Foundation, Page, and Strzok – Washington Examiner
The White House Thursday ripped the “breathless” media coverage of the Russia collusion “hoax” and said now that it’s over, journalists should turn their attention on Obama-era scandals.
“While the establishment media has breathlessly covered this partisan witch hunt for nearly two years, they refuse to cover the real scandals that plagued the previous Democrat administration,” said an official.
The campaign manager of the Trump 2020 reelection campaign, Brad Parscale, added, “Now that the collusion and obstruction conspiracy theories have been exposed for the pathetic hoaxes they always were, the Obama-era [Department of Justice] and FBI must answer for their misdeeds and the scam that they perpetrated against the American people. Justice will be served.”
The administration cited the email scandal that dogged former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, whose loss to President Trump in 2016 still shocks Democrats.
The administration noted that former President Barack Obama gave the email scandal a pass when, on “60 Minutes,” he said it was a “mistake” but not “a national security problem.”
That comment raised concern in national security circles, and one former official said, “That’s a problem, right?”
It also cited the destruction of over 30,000 Clinton emails from her private server in New York after a preservation order had been issued.
The White House also wants the Clinton Foundation’s funding investigated and the efforts by FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok to undermine Trump and help Clinton in the 2016 election.
