The FBI has released redacted reports on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the handling of classified information on her personal e-mail server during her tenure in office, centering around violation of rules regarding the handling of classified materials as well as skirting federal record-keeping requirements.
Clinton, now the Democratic nominee for President, was the subject of a substantial investigation over the emails, though ultimately the Obama Administration decided not to charge her with any crimes related to the violations.
While most of the report is simply data surrounding the history of the email servers and the way in which much of the record-keeping apparatus went missing, Clinton’s defense by which she got around violating standard practices on handling emails was that she simply didn’t remember.
In December of 2012, in the lead-up to an order to testify at the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Benghazi, Clinton feinted, suffering from dehydration, and sustained a concussion, which the State Department insisted at the time was “not severe.” Clinton’s duties were limited for some time after this, with a blood clot later in the month adding to the problems.
That is not to say that the concussion was a direct explanation for why Clinton “forgot” about the briefings, but the FBI report links the two, albeit ambiguously, mentioning the concussion and then declaring that “based on her doctor’s advice, she could only work at State for a few hours a day and could not recall every briefing she received.”
Former President Bill Clinton reported that Hillary took six months to get over the effects of the concussion. She officially ended her tenure at the State Department on February 1, 2013. According to the FBI, she never discussed record-keeping or any sort of email backup with her staff during the lead-up to her departure.
The Clinton campaign insisted that the concussion was not her excuse for not handling the material properly, but was her explanation for why she only worked a few hours a day at the time, not why she forgot so much of what she did at the time.

I came; I fainted; I forgot.
Has there ever been such a corrupt bubbleheaded idiot foisted on the American people in our history?
Yes, G W Bush! And like him, she will win by cheating and rigging the electoral system; the Anglo-Zionist Empire will see to that.
If your vote counted for anything of importance, it would be made illegal, a truer statement there never was.
Does she really expect anyone to believe this baloney? The fact that this lie is so pathetic makes her look even worse!
She’s between a rock and a hard place.
If the baloney is false, she’s busted lying again, and is a criminal who’s unfit for the presidency.
If the baloney is true, her mental state, disability of recall, etc. likewise make her unfit for the presidency.
I hope that there are some that learn from this article. It seems to me that as soon as a person has joined Team Democrat that neither of the above two issues matter.
The old war monger failed another “smell test.”
Does one fail a smell test by having no smell… or by being odoriferous..?????
Gee, if I remember correctly, Beloved R.R. used the same line of answers when dealing with Congressional questions on his role in the deals made with Iran… AKA Iran Contra… Maybe Hillary has contracted the very same malady that Reagan had at the END of his two terms only she seems to have it at the beginning of her probable term… Hey, no need of worry, she will have William J. to keep her abreast of what sh does, says, and purports to think and believe.. He can be her memory…. Yeah sure he can…..
Funny, Jason Ditz used “feint” instead of “faint”. And it’s possibly more accurate.
