Howler From CNN’s Cuomo: It’s ‘Illegal’ For Anyone But the Press to ‘Possess’ WikiLeaks Documents

CNN’s Chris Cuomo, who laughably insisted a month ago that Hillary Clinton “did not do anything illegal” in connection with her use of a private server for State Department emailing and other business, is at it again. To be clear, she did lots of things that are illegal, but a corrupt FBI and Department of Justice decided not to prosecute her.

This time CNN’s New Day co-host rendered his decidedly nonexpert legal assessment of who can and can’t “possess” purloined documents made public by WikiLeaks: “… remember, it’s illegal to possess these stolen documents. It’s different for the media. So everything you learn about this, you’re learning from us.” What arrogant nonsense.

Hmm …

WaPo/ABC is exactly where it was three months ago (Clinton 47-43, Clinton +4).

Rasmussen, which had Clinton up 7 before the debate, now has her up by 2.

Meanwhile, that stubborn LA Times/USC poll still has Trump ahead by 1 (with virtually no black support, which is one of the key unpredictable wildcards in this election).

And it’s over because a bunch of polls which so obviously overweight Democrats and 2012 Obama voters show Hillary Clinton with a double-digit lead? With the Wikileaks news leaking (excuse the pun) into visibility because the press is trying to block its exposure, but can’t?

It is to laugh.
