Hillary Perfectly Trolls Mark Meadows After 1/6 Panel Finds He Used Personal Email Accounts for Government Business

Hillary Perfectly Trolls Mark Meadows After 1/6 Panel Finds He Used Personal Email Accounts for Government Business

The House select committee investigating the deadly failed insurrection of January 6 continues to scrutinize former President Donald Trump's White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, and his role in the events that day.

While Meadows suddenly ceased cooperation with the January 6 committee, he'd already turned over thousands of documents related to the investigation. Nevertheless, he's yet to deliver some other relevant documents housed in his personal cell phone and email.

The reason for his hesitation? Executive privilege.

That's right, Meadows is telling the committee they can't have access to correspondence on his personal accounts and devices because they contain details of his official interactions as White House chief of staff. The House committee responded to this by asking why, if this correspondence was official, Meadows didn't submit the communications to the National Archives, as is protocol.

You'll likely remember that even before the 2016 campaign in which she was the Democratic nominee, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was blasted by conservatives for her use of a personal email to conduct official business. Trump himself popularized chants of "lock her up!" insisting that the use of a personal email was criminal.

Never mind that White House officials before and after Clinton used personal devices and accounts while serving, or that the Federal Bureau of Investigation found no criminal wrongdoing in Clinton's actions.

Meanwhile, the personal communications already uncovered by the committee found a powerpoint Meadows included in an email detailing a plot for Trump to declare a national emergency to delay the certification of Biden's victory.

Clinton had a cheeky response to the development.

Clinton noted that Meadows entertained plots to subvert the will of the American people, while the thousands of emails Clinton submitted contained mundane musings like whether she and top aide Huma Abedin should be "bad" by ordering a creme brûlée for dessert. One famous email featured the subject line "Gefilte fish," the popular ground fish appetizer.

Contained in the email was a blunt question from Clinton:

"Where are we on this?"

Twitter cackled at her response to the Meadows development.

People also agreed that the two were not equivalent.

Double standards abound.

Iowa AG Dragged For Ironically Boasting At RNC That Republicans Put Criminals 'In Jail'

Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird was criticized after telling the audience at the Republican National Convention that the GOP is known to "put criminals where they belong: in jail"—only to then encourage everyone to vote for convicted felon former President Donald Trump.

In May, Trump became the first former president to be convicted of felony crimes. The jury found him guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records to conceal hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels to illegally influence the 2016 election. His sentencing was set for July 11 but has now been delayed in the wake of a Supreme Court decision granting him sweeping immunity protections.
