New York Times Tells Hillary Clinton to Go Pound Sand, Refuses to Publish Statement

Hillary Clinton’s team is outraged after the New York Times told the twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate to go pound sand and refused to publish her statement.

The Times had reportedly asked Clinton for a statement on President Donald Trump’s handling of documents when he left the White House.

However, after Hillary responded with a statement that attempted to claim vindication for her own emails-mishandling scandal, the left-wing newspaper drew the line.

Trump is back in the news over handling of documents as he left the White House and during his time in office.

Hillary, of course, believes this vindicates her but Trump was elected president and the office comes with different rules than Secretary of State.

As Secretary of State, Clinton was an unelected bureaucrat who knowingly set up a private email server so she couldn’t be FOIA’d.

The New York Times apparently agrees that the two cases are far from similar because they refused to print her gloating statement.

Nick Merrill, a longtime aide to Clinton, was not happy and said:

“The @nytimes just printed a story on Trump’s mishandling of classified information.

“They asked for comment from @HillaryClinton’s office as this exposes his hypocrisy. In typical form, the NYT’s editors declined to print the comment, so posting it here.

“The 2-year frenzy over emails was a political Rorschach test, where everyone saw everything different in what was ultimately nothing.

“Call it sexism, Republican depravity, ratings-hungry media, it’s time we acknowledge it was bulls—, and write that into the history books.”

An anti-Trump New York Times journalist, Maggie Haberman, made the claims about the 45th president’s handling of documents in her new book.,

“As I was reporting out this book, I learned that staff in White House residence would periodically find the toilet clogged,” Haberman claimed.

“The engineer would have to come and fix it.

“And what the engineer would find would be wads of clumped up wet, printed paper – meaning it was not toilet paper.

“It was either notes or some other piece of paper that they believe he had thrown down the toilet.”

Trump denied the sleazy report, saying:

“The media’s characterization of my relationship with NARA is Fake News.

“It was exactly the opposite!

“It was a great honor to work with NARA to help formally preserve the Trump Legacy.

“Another fake story, that I flushed papers and documents down a White House toilet, is categorically untrue and simply made up by a reporter in order to get publicity for a mostly fictitious book.”
