Overstated Quote of the Day

"Does Hillary Clinton have a serious legal problem because she may have transmitted classified information on her private e-mail server? After talking with a half-dozen knowledgeable lawyers, I think this 'scandal' is overstated. Using the server was a self-inflicted wound by Clinton, but it’s not something a prosecutor would take to court." -- (emphasis added) formerly great Washington Post Bezos Bugle opinion writer and Beltway insider David Ignatius spilling the beans about the e-mail "scandal" that's being flogged by Rethuglican operatives and their Clinton-despising friends in the media.

What makes this article unusual is Ignatius' status as a Beltway opinion leader.  This article probably won't change many minds among his colleagues, but it may cause them to wonder -- for the first time -- whether they've crawled too far out on a limb on this story.
