There’s a reason that investigations of Clinton’s scandals always turn up empty handed.

Email “scandal” seems main reason Clinton is seen as untrustworthy
- Justice dept. found nothing illegal, no reason to indict
- Powell, Rice also used private servers
- No evidence that anything bad happened (security breaches, etc)
- She was cooperative throughout
- Issue is politically motivated
- NY Times: “Security Logs of Hillary Clinton’s Email Server Are Said to Show No Evidence of Hacking.”
- Reuters: “The two sources said the U.S. investigation of Lazar turned up no evidence to support the hacker’s claims that he had broken into Clinton’s private server.”
- FBI Director James Comey: “We did not find direct evidence that Secretary Clinton’s personal e-mail domain, in its various configurations since 2009, was successfully hacked.”
- FBI Director James Comey: The hacker Guccifer “did not [gain access to Clinton’s server], he admitted that was a lie.”
- Vox: “Importantly, the [State Department IG] report doesn’t turn up any evidence that Clinton’s emails were successfully hacked or compromised.”
- Factcheck.org: “Trump falsely claimed that the private server that Clinton used as secretary of state “was easily hacked by foreign governments.” Attempts were made to hack into Clinton’s server, but the identity of the hackers has not been determined and there has been no evidence to date that any of them were successful.”

Imagine if Soros had contributed his $8 million to MoveOn to help Sanders. Also imagine that liberal donor S. Donald Sussman had given his $2.5 million to Sanders instead of Clinton. Then 11.1% of Sanders funding would be from top-tier hedge fund managers!
And in this case, only 3.9% of Clinton’s funding would be from Wall Street. And as we will see, much (likely most) of that is from progressives. [data]
|Conservative Wall Street funding for Clinton is under 5%, quite likely far under or nearly non-existent.|
Was MoveOn corrupted by Soros’s $1.46 million? If Sanders had accepted these two contributions, would that have corrupted him? I don’t think so. In fact the idea of such progressive money corrupting Bernie or MoveOn is ridiculous. So why does Bernie claim it has corrupted Hillary? I wonder. [Read the full post. See calculations and documentation.]
George Soros contributed $6 million to a SuperPAC backing her.

Hillary’s Server vs the State Dept.
However, the same can not be said for the State Department and other government email systems:
- Reuters: State Department’s Unclassified Email Systems Hacked
- CNN: Sources: State Dept. hack the ‘worst ever’
- Washington Post: “The breach is the latest of a series of electronic intrusions first detected last month on government computer systems at a variety of agencies, from the White House to the U.S. Postal Service to the National Weather Service. The suspected hackers of the White House’s computer network were believed to be working for the Russian government.”
