Jesus! That was still going on?

A long-running Republican-led investigation into the handling of classified information on Hillary Clinton’s private email server did not find any evidence that China had successfully hacked the former secretary of state, confirming the findings of the FBI, according to a memo released by two senior senators this week.
The findings, from Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, the former chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, respectively, should help put to rest allegations that resurfaced after a report in a conservative news outlet last year that was later perpetuated online by President Donald Trump.
“Neither the committees nor the FBI were able to confirm whether an intrusion into the server occurred,” Grassley and Johnson said in a news release Wednesday.
Concerns of an intrusion by China into the server were first raised by two officials from the Intelligence Community Inspector General’s Office, which helped initiate the original review of Clinton’s email practices as secretary of state that was later referred to the FBI, according to the memo. Both officials were interviewed by the Senate investigators as part of their probe.
Here, wait until you read what inspired this bullshit investigation in the first place:
One of the officials told Senate investigators that Peter Strzok, a senior FBI official on the Clinton investigation who was fired last year after the release of text messages he’d sent that were critical of Trump, was “aloof and dismissive” when presented with information about the potential Chinese hack
Yes, he was aloof and dismissive because it was a fucking stupid thing to suggest without evidence to back it up.
I would be aloof and dismissive if somebody had suggested this to me as well.
But here are the actual facts, and I have been yelling this from mountaintops since before the 2016 election.
NOBODY FUCKING HACKED HILLARY CLINTON’S PRIVATE EMAIL SERVER!!!!!
Not the Chinese, not the Russians, not the numerous unnamed GOP operatives, nobody!
And you have to know that literally EVERYBODY tried.
Keep in mind that the White House, the DNC, the RNC, the State Department, and even the NSA all got hacked.
Setting up that private server was literally one of the most intelligent things that Hillary ever did, and instead of being praised for it she has been repeatedly and unfairly attacked.
