A fresh reminder that the Clintons never play by the rules

Post Editorial Board
How about that: Among the 14,900 “new” Hillary Clinton emails uncovered by the FBI are 30 or so that concern the Benghazi attack — the most controversial single episode in Clinton’s four years running the State Department.

So much for Clinton’s claim that she’d handed over all her work-related emails. Heck: So much for any remaining illusion that she even tried to provide a complete record.

But, as someone once asked: What difference, at this point, does it make? Can Hillary’s “trust deficit” get any deeper?

In part, that depends on what’s actually in the emails, which may not be released until the end of September.

But it also seems to up the odds that the overall FBI “dump” will have some kind of bombshell. Benghazi’s been a matter of prime public and congressional interest for the last four years. If Clinton wouldn’t even make a good-faith effort to hand over everything on that topic, then she wasn’t trying for full disclosure on any front.

Bigger picture: This is a taste of what a Hillary presidency would bring, just as Bill’s did back in the ’90s — endless low-level scandal, occasionally flaring up into something far larger.

It’s no mystery why. The Clintons just refuse to play by the rules — whether it’s “renting out” the Lincoln Bedroom to big campaign donors in Bill’s White House, or giving preferential access to big Clinton Foundation donors at Hillary’s State Department.

And when they get caught, they never, ever just apologize and come clean. Instead, they circle the wagons and stonewall. Finally they answer the drip, drip, drip of fresh damning details with chants of “Old news” and “Let’s move on.”

It’s how they’ve rolled for four decades in the public eye. At 68 and 70, they’re not going to change. A vote for Hillary is a vote for another tarnished presidency.

You’ve been warned — again.
