Hillary 's Email Scandal Since the beginning of the 2016 election cycle, Hilary 's deleted and emails and use of a private server have been the subject of scrutiny by people across the political spectrum, and from their draw the conclusion that she is more untrustworthy than other politicians.

Emails that could potentially contain information about the false claims weapons of mass destruction which were used as an excuse to go into Iraq and the firings of US attorneys for political reasons. The Bush White House also used a private server, in fact 95% of Bush 's chief staffers would emails were on a private email server set up by the RNC.

This email loss also made it difficult for congress to investigate the allegedly political firings of 9 US attorneys. When the Senate Judiciary Committee required these emails to be presented, Alberto Gonzalez, Bush’s attorney general, admitted to losing the emails on the on a private email server used on the RNC.

Though Hilary shouldn’t have used a private server, Hillary 's email scandal is nowhere near as horrible or disastrous as Bush’s email scandal yet got quadruple as much media coverage and triple as much scrutiny from the opposing party.

    An example of an issue that is time and time again riddled with disinformation and propaganda is the US Elections. Obviously we know how fake news infected the Trump v Clinton election this past year, swaying voters opinions and arguably altering the end result, but this is not a new occurrence. Only the past September former US president Barack Obama warmed Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerburg about the danger of fake news on Facebook, and understandably so.

This was all that was needed for allegations of Obama's "secret Muslim faith" and people began questioning whether he was even an American.…

    Anything having to do with bribery and the government isn’t appropriate because that is illegal and could be charged as treason. But about ethics, Mrs. Clinton states on her website “Empowering people to build better futures for themselves, their families, and their communities.” This might as well be said as false because Hillary failed that mission whenever the earthquake on Haiti occurred. The earthquake was probably the most devastating humanitarian crisis Clinton faced during her position in the state Department. In a matter of seconds 250,000 people were estimated to have died. Most of the Haitian infrastructure and economy was devastated.…

    “The end is near,” they say. Not the end of the world like many will most likely interpret or even wish, rather the end of the prolonged 2016 US election, in which feels like the end of the world for us Americans after repeatedly getting fed with empty promises throughout the campaign season. Out of 318.9 million people living in the US (according to the United States Census Bureau), even having a very tiny fraction of other individuals eligible to take over the US presidential position according to the law of probability, we came down to two candidates notorious for their exceptionally terrible reputation. We have Hillary Clinton representing the Democratic Party infamous for her shady email controversy, which allegedly lead to numerous of…

    Ever since Trump’s polling has started to drop; we have seen Trump start saying that he is “afraid that the election’s going to be rigged.” In recent surveys we have seen almost half of the entire Republican party believe that voter fraud is a major issue this election and that only 11 percent of Trump supporters thought that the votes will be counted accurately. Trump is creating a situation in which our entire system of elections is being called into question. He is doing this because he ego is so huge he doesn’t want people to think he actually lost the election. This creates a situation in which a decent portion of the country will believe that if Hillary Clinton is elected that she got there by rigging the system. Trump is influencing these people to distrust our Democratic system and thus is weakening it.…
