According to the Times, questions are being raised about Hillary Clinton. By something, with the reporter being a mere passive vessel for inevitable questions:
A top aide to Hillary Clinton at the State Department agreed to try to obtain a special diplomatic passport for an adviser to former President Bill Clinton in 2009, according to emails released Thursday, raising new questions about whether people tied to the Clinton Foundation received special access at the department.
Hmm, it strikes me that the “questions” that were “raised” have an “answer,” which is generously provided:
The request by the adviser, Douglas J. Band, who started one arm of the Clintons’ charitable foundation, was unusual, and the State Department never issued the passport. Only department employees and others with diplomatic status are eligible for the special passports, which help envoys facilitate travel, officials said.
So, in conclusion, 1)a Hillary Clinton aide asked for a special favor, 2)didn’t get it, and 3)this “raises questions” because the Clintons once lost money in a minor Arkansas land deal or something.
I have no idea what explains it, but this form of hackery has been endemic at the Times for decades. The clouds over the Clinton campaign can never be dissipated.
