Thursday Thuds

HILLARY'S IT FOLKS TAKE THE 5TH.  A former aide to Hillary Clinton who helped set up her private email server has told at least three congressional committees that he will invoke the Fifth Amendment to avoid testifying against his former boss, Fox News has confirmed.  When your IT people start taking the 5th, it's not a good sign. Offer him immunity and compel testimony.

FBI STARTING PROBE OF HILLARY'S SERVER:  ESPIONAGE. The FBI has begun a probe into whether foreign intelligence services compromised Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server during and after her tenure as secretary of state, according to U.S. intelligence and Congressional officials.  Espionage is a word that used to get people shot, or hung.  No wonder her IT guy is taking the 5th.

WILL EMAILGATE BURN THE WHITE HOUSE? Will Hillary Clinton’s Emails Burn the White House?  Some are asking how far up this went, who knew, and what the damage is.

KENTUCKY CLERK JAILED.  A federal judge ordered a defiant county clerk to jail for contempt Thursday after she insisted that it would violate her conscience to follow court orders to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.  Just exactly how did she think this would turn out.  If she doesn't want to issue marriage licenses, that's her prerogative.  If the judge want to jail her for contempt, that's his prerogative.  Maybe she should just resign and let someone else have the job.

And some folks wonder why I quit following politics at the national level.  There is just so much suckge that one man can cover without losing his sanity.
