Hillary Clinton may or may not be a crook. That remains to be proven, though the sheer magnitude of the wealth that she and husband Bill have amassed since leaving the White House, and while she was serving as Secretary of State -- nearly a quarter of a billion dollars earned by two people with no known skills capable of producing that kind of income -- should raise questions. What can be stated now as fact though, is that Hillary is a serial liar.

If this wasn't clear already from her long history of distortion and prevarication -- like her false claim that she had to "duck to avoid sniper fire" during a state visit to Bosnia -- it is clear now from FBI Director James Comey's 11-page public report on his agency's year-long investigation into her use of a private server for all her private and official emails during her term as Secretary of State.

That report has exposed her serial lying to both Congress and the public about that illegal use of private email service to handle her public business.

As the Associated Press reports, Clinton lied in March 2015 when she declared in one of her rare news conferences, "I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material."

But as Comey reports, she did. Quite often in fact. The FBI in its exhaustive investigation found at least 113 email chains --some of which had to be uncovered after they had been erased by Clinton's private lawyers -- contained material that was classified at the time of sending, including some that were classified Top Secret and that referred to a "highly classified special-access program."

She lied again at that same press conference when she asserted, "I responded right away and provided all my emails that could possibly be work related" to the State Department.

Not true, according to the FBI, and also, of course, to the Inspector General of the State Department, whose own investigation of her actions, Clinton simply refused to cooperate with.
