WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Critics and political opponents of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton found what they were hoping for in the State Department’s newly-released personal emails from the former Secretary of State: something really fishy.
The newest trove of more than 7,000 of Clinton’s emails were released Monday night, showcasing more of the mundane political notes and scheduling requests that have been released earlier.
The emails show Clinton was a little obsessed with criticism from Fox News and was eager to check out NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” and CBS’ “The Good Wife.” In addition, a series of emails surfaced that could all but damage Clinton’s candidacy for president. It’s all about Gefilte fish.
Gefilte fish is a Jewish dish made from a poached mixture of ground boned fish which is typically eaten as an appetizer. The dish is popular on Shabbat and Holidays such as Passover, although they may be consumed throughout the year. Some versions of Gefilte fish are baked in a Bundt cake pan and made with Matzo meal and carrots. The dish usually uses white fish, but it could be made with other fish like salmon.
Now, whoever is anointed Republican nominee for president in the 2016 elections will have enough amunition to wage a strong campaign against the presumed Democratic nominee, Hillary. Thanks to the fishy emails.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – Bowing to intense pressure, and to clear the air once and for all about the use of her personal email account for official communication during her term as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton today released all of her email records to the media.
Political opponents and reporters, especially from FOX News, scrambled to read and scrutinize the tens of thousands of email messages that Clinton released and were very disappointed that there was not a single email that could constitute a ‘political bomb.’
Most of the emails were addressed to U.S. ambassadors in foreign countries which she had visited, informing them of her flight arrival and duration of her visits. The rest were personal notes to Bill Clinton, asking the former president to make dinner arrangements at their favorite restaurants in Washington, D.C. and New York. There were a few emails sent to Barbara Streisand asking her how she was doing, and one email to Monica Lewinsky wishing her the best in her tell-all book endeavor.
Now, Republicans, who were counting on the email issue to become as explosive as Watergate and the Iran Contra Affair, are instead dealing with a far greater political fallout resulting from the open letter to Iran signed by 47 of their colleagues in the Senate.
