Enough of the witch hunt

The Republicans have spent close to $8 million of taxpayer money on a witch-hunt against Hillary Clinton. They claim to be so indignant over her having a private email server and the death of four people in Benghazi. In 2007, according to the ‘Washington Week’ website, Congress asked the Bush administration for all of their emails regarding the firing of eight U.S, attorneys. The Attorney General informed Congress that he could not produce them because they were sent on a private, illegal, non-government server run by none other than the Republican National Committee and that many of them had been deleted. Two years later it was revealed that as many as 22 million emails had been erased from that private, illegal server. Apparently the Republicans consider themselves above the law and it’s not a crime for them but it is for Hillary Clinton and she is labeled a criminal. The Republicans have shown no indignation whatsoever over the report in 2007 about the war they started by lying to the whole world about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Their war cost the lives of over 6800 servicemen and women, over 32,000wounded. Twenty veterans a day commit suicide. In 2014 over 7400 veterans took their own lives. A report in 2011 says the war in Iraq and Afghanistan will cost the American taxpayers as much as 6 trillion dollars. All the lives lost and ruined and all the money spent over nothing more than lies by a power-hungry Republican administration.
