Woman Who Holds No Press Conferences Wants Press To “Hold Me Accountable”

Alternate headline: “Woman who attempted to hide all her communication with a private, non-sanctioned email server wants press to hold her accountable.” We could surely discuss things like her foundation, as well.

(The Hill) Hillary Clinton fielded questions from a group of black and Latino journalists on Friday, insisting that immigration reform will be a top priority if she’s elected president.

But the Democratic nominee warned that action on comprehensive immigration reform would depend on her political capital — which she said would only be as strong as her electoral mandate.

“We are hoping the outcome of the election will send a clear message to our Republican friends that it’s time to stop standing in the way,” Clinton told the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists.

“I want you to hold me accountable, because the stakes are as high as they’ve ever been in our lifetime,” she told the gathering, before taking questions.

This is a woman who hasn’t had a press conference yet this year, though her people quibble with that, saying that fielding questions from a whopping two journalists serving as moderators at the above even counted as a press conference. Of course, she sorta takes questions, mostly from friendly journalists, here and there, and in one on one interviews with, again, mostly friendly journalists.

But, being held accountable? If she wanted to be held accountable, she’d step down as the Dem Party presidential candidate. She knows she did wrong. She tried to obfuscate and stall inquiries into her server and what happened in Benghazi. She lied to the families of those killed in Benghazi.

Nor will the majority of the media hold her accountable. Most are voting for her. They want her to be president. Even if the GOP had a decent candidate, they’d still be voting Hillary. They themselves worked hard to cover up the email server and what happened in Benghazi. Few even bother with investigating her foundation. They are in the bag.
