Should the voters factor the Benghazi issue, or Email controversy into the voting decision?
Why or why is not important to resolve these issues before the election?
Absolutely - anything an elected official does while holding office should be part of the equation. These things demonstrate trustworthiness or lack thereof and leadership failures.
This guy Petraeus got a 100K fine and two years probation for sharing some classified data with a mistress who did nothing with the information.
How is it that, to date, Clinton gets nothing for a whole lot of leaking of classified material to people who acted on the information. Both were email excursions. Both dealt with classified material.
Now I mention that for a reason. I am not saying Clinton is completely guilty. I am saying she is not charged with a crime on a ton more proof. And that leads us to influence peddling. When the facts are laid out in the General election it will be very damaging. Not that Democrats will vote for a Republican but they will not in good conscience vote. Voters should factor that in.
On Benghazi the issue goes directly to the competency in managing high risk foreign affairs at a base level. She cannot protect one embassy that she knows is under assault and for sure knew of the threat yet she is to keep our military out of harms way? The voters should most assuredly take that under deep consideration. At the very least she cannot lead underlings to handle matters.
But does that mean it is all about Hillary? Probably not and that is why the Republicans will win the next election. In Obama not allowing a federal prosecution and hampering the Benghazi investigation this shows a party more in tune with covering for each other than getting to a righteous determination of possible wrong doing. What else are they doing this with?
Again it does not mean people will switch party lines but so many democrats "should" factor in these problems they will stay home from the vote. Sure there will still be many who are just frightened of a Republican president but they will be sad in numbers. The Dems better hope for a good turnout because of Senate and Congressional races.
I these are noteworthy issues, because if Clinton lied about these things while not in office, what makes anyone think she's not gonna lie or cover stuff up while IN office?
These issues should be solved by a Congressional investigation, but have been hindered by the Clintons and White House stonewalling, actually trying to NOT give documents, in order to avoid an investigation and indictment.
That's why it has not been resolved yet and an issue in the election.
Of course it should... but we will hear none of it... the media will bury it, and instead focus on Trump being a KKK member, who wants to re-establish the Nazi Party here in America and shoot nukes at all our enemies the first day he is in office.
Its so sad its laughable... the real gestapo politicians are painted as caring, forward thinking, progressive Polticians... and the ones who want to do right by America are always painted out to be racist, or sexist, or the next Hitler, same old same old we have seen for the past 20+ years now.
