How secret is it? (15)

If Hillary Clinton were the leading GOP candidate for president, the story of her email server would never get a rest. It is a subject of her bold and never-ending lies. It demonstrates her unfitness for public office. It demonstrates her fitness for an orange jumpsuit.

As it is, however, Clinton is the leading Democratic candidate for president and one has to be a news junkie to discover that yet another State Department employee has clammed up. Politico’s Rachel Bade reports:

A State Department staffer who oversaw security and technology issues for Hillary Clinton is refusing to answer Senate investigators’ questions about the former secretary of state’s use of a private email server — marking the second time an ex-State employee has declined to talk to lawmakers.

John Bentel, a now-retired State employee who managed IT security issues for the top echelon at the department, declined to be interviewed by GOP staff on the Senate Judiciary and Homeland Security committees, according to a letter obtained by POLITICO.

It’s almost enough to make one think there must be something to hide.
