Hillary Clinton has an amazing ability to slither out of scandals. She can figuratively walk through fire and keep going because the media is on her side and will not ask her any tough questions about the abundant evidence of her misdeeds. She has always been able to make clearly damning evidence nuanced and muddied to the point of extinction. She has rarely answered questions; and when she does, she employs her husband’s trick of giving a non-answer answer to a question posed today, and when asked for a true answer tomorrow giving the response: “I’ve already answered that yesterday; can we move on to something important?” As infuriating as this is, the Clintons get away with it because the media attacks anyone who dares to try to pry a real answer from either Bill or Hillary.
If this were the only way to nail the Wicked Witch of Washington, she would have a clear path to the White House because there are enough of the same dopes who wanted to elect the first black man to the presidency as those who want to elect the first woman to the presidency. Fortunately, however, the battle doesn’t end there. She is faced with at least one problem that cannot be nuanced away.
By her own admission, Hillary destroyed evidence (the tens of thousands of emails) after she was put on notice that a Congressional Committee wanted to see them. In legal terms, this is known as “spoliation of evidence.” This puts Hillary in a legal crossfire with only three bad choices. First, she can continue to deny everything in hopes that the “boys in the newsroom” can figure out a lie for her to tell that will make it all go away. That, of course, is a dangerous peg to hang her hat on. Hillary can also continue to obstruct the investigation into the Benghazi murders by spoiling even more evidence, which is a bad choice. The third choice is to cooperate with the various committees and allow the truth to come out.

Clinton is currently digging in her heels in and saying, “Yeah, I spoiled damning evidence against me; what are you going to do about it?” With Trey Gowdy, a former prosecutor, at the receiving end of this snide response, raise your hand if you think Hillary Clinton can continue to lie and eventually wiggle free of his hook.
Spoiling evidence is a desperate ploy from a desperate woman.
