Political commentator and a host of the HBO political talk show William Maher stated that Hillary Clinton, 2016 presidential candidate, obstructed justice and controversially avoided criminal charges when her aids destroyed evidence related to a now-closed investigation into her use of private email for government issues.
In an interview with Chris Cuomo of CNN Maher was asked his opinion on how media had to “police the election”. He said that he didn’t have “a lot of faith because, you know, we don’t live in the era of news division as loss leaders like we used to. The news division didn’t have to make a profit.”
“Then that changed and then you have to report to the board like everybody else and show your earnings and in that atmosphere they’re always going to be looking for eyeballs. That’s going to be the most important thing is getting people to click, getting people to watch.
And in that atmosphere, I mean look at how much they over covered Hillary’s emails in 2016. And what effect that had on the election? Now there’s a lot of reasons why the Democrats lost and many of them were Hillary was a terrible candidate,” said Maher.
When Cuomo said that Clinton’s handling of the situation with her private correspondence did not help her, Maher agreed. “Absolutely, right,” he said. “And she committed obstruction of justice.”
Talking about Democrats, Maher stated that “hey have some things to answer for.”
“They don’t help themselves a lot and a lot of this far-left political correctness is a cancer on progressivism,” he added.
