Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lashed out at Donald Trump in a random tweet Monday, declaring that “the President is not above the law.”
Clinton, who managed to evade prosecution for handling classified material on a private server installed in the bathroom of her home, made the statement even richer by implying everybody should know this simple fact.
“I don’t know who needs to hear this, but the president is not above the law,” she said.
Self-awareness: -500 points.
This is a woman who had aides take hammers to cell phones, used Bleach Bit to wipe her computer drives clean, and deleted tens of thousands of emails in an attempt to skirt the law.
I don’t know who needs to hear this, but the president is not above the law.

Who Needs to Hear It
For starters, Mrs. Clinton, you probably need to hear it, considering you were seeking the White House and illegally housed top secret material on a private server that endured multiple hacking attempts. Former FBI Director James Comey certainly thought you were above the law.
Barack Obama, whose administration illegally ran guns to Mexican drug cartels, illegally targeted conservative groups through the IRS, and who we now know spied on his political adversary during the 2016 election, might want to hear that lecture as well.
Neither are Secretary’s of State who use BleachBit to destroy 30,000 emails worth of evidence in an FBI criminal investigation into their illegal use of a private server to conduct official government business. https://t.co/zZ5KRxYWFS

Above the Law
Hillary’s revelation comes just a couple of weeks after transcripts of testimony by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch were released, in which she accused former FBI Director James Comey of lying under oath to Congress about the Clinton investigation.
“[Lynch] told me to call it a matter, which confused and concerned me,” Comey had testified, arguing semantics rather than trying to get to the heart of the criminal behavior.
“I did not,” Lynch unequivocally denied when asked if she had directed Comey to downgrade the case from an investigation to a ‘matter.’
“I have never instructed a witness as to what to say specifically,” she added. “Never have, never will.”
Loretta Lynch DENIES telling Comey to refer to the Clinton email case as a “matter,” rather than an investigation, directly contradicting statements made by Comey. SOMEONE IS LYING. pic.twitter.com/qb0U4Jopp3

Clinton may want to make it clear that neither the former Attorney General nor the former Director of the FBI – one of whom clearly lied in their testimony to Congress – is above the law either. Perhaps they ‘need to hear it.’
