Team Clinton: Iran executing scientist discussed in Hillary’s emails is another Vast Right Wing Conspiracy™ theory

I was “off the grid” all weekend but obviously Hillary Clinton kept short circuiting during that time. Here’s something worth talking about:

Hillary Clinton’s private email server contains several messages discussing Shahram Amiri, the Iranian nuclear scientist who the Islamic republic executed earlier this week amid allegations he was a spy for the U.S. government.

One of those emails, which a Clinton aide forwarded to the then-secretary of state in July 2010, referred to Amiri as “our friend.”

It is unclear if the existence of the sensitive emails — which were first revealed by Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton during an interview Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation” — put Amiri at additional risk of conviction or execution by Iran. But Cotton, a Republican, suggested that the emails provided further evidence that Clinton’s use of a private and unsecured email server put American secrets at risk and was “reckless and careless.”

“I’m not going to comment on what he may or may not have done for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary Clinton’s private server, there were conversations among her senior advisors about this gentleman,” Cotton told “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson.

So Hillary didn’t only talk about yoga and dinner recipes? Who knew!?

Team Clinton calls it a conspiracy theory (via Right Scoop):

A Clinton spokesperson pushed back after Cotton’s comments.

“The Trump campaign has never met a conspiracy theory it didn’t like. He and his supporters continue to use increasingly desperate rhetoric to attack Hillary Clinton and make absurd accusations because they have no ideas for the American people,” the spokesperson said. “It’s pretty remarkable to baselessly claim that Hillary Clinton is responsible for this tragic death.”

Amiri was hanged the same week that Tehran executed a group of militants, a year after Iran agreed to a landmark accord to limit uranium enrichment in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions.

There goes that “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy” machine again. Remember when accusations that Hillary had classified information on her server were also called conspiracy theories?

We now have a record number of anti-Clinton conspiracy theories that the Clintons themselves are in on.
