We’ve all seen it before — a sports star or coach comes unglued during an interview with the press and storms out. It’s painful and embarrassing, but nothing really comes of it.
However, Cheryl Mills isn’t a sports star. She’s a former aide to Hillary Clinton during Clinton’s time at the State Department. And the interview wasn’t being conducted by a bunch of sportswriters and bloggers. It was being done by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
As you can probably guess, storming out of that sort of setting is, uh, not a good idea.
According to The Washington Post, Mills walked out of her interview with the FBI because of a question she thought was off-limits. The question allegedly had to do with how emails were given to the State Department for distribution to the public.
Mills, former Secretary Clinton chief of staff, left the room when the question was asked. According to The Post, she was afraid that the question would violate attorney-client privilege.
I’m not a lawyer, but that excuse ranks right up there with, “It was like that when I got here.”
Mills and her attorney later returned to the room, presumably after spending some happy time in a safe space with bubbles and coloring books. Or, perhaps her lawyer told her that storming out of an interview with the FBI generally ends poorly. I’m going to go with door number two, but that’s just me.
It’s clear that all of Hillary’s people are feeling the strain of the FBI’s investigation, as well they should. Even if they aren’t charged, their perfidy is likely to be exposed at some point during the campaign.
It could mean that Donald Trump is elected president, and they all go down as serving a serial liar who needed the protection of the Obama administration to stay out of prison.
