Whelp, it took five days. But Hillary Clinton’s people finally released a 38-word statement about her pal Harvey Weinstein.
And it’s as bloodless and cold as you’d expect.

And believe me when I tell you not one of those 38 words was written by Hillary Clinton.
My guess is Hillary’s statement was not only released by Nick Merrill; it was written by Merrill as well. And it was only released after Nick ran it past several other people to get their feedback, input, corrections and additions.
How do I know?
Well, I read the Podesta emails.
And while everyone else was eagerly looking for that smoking gun email that would land Hillary in prison, I was learning how the sausage was made.
On October 14, 2016, in a post titled Spending the day with WikiLeaks, I outlined how every public statement Hillary makes is written by committee.
And that includes this tweet:
I want the public to see my email. I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible.

I found the email chain where Nick Merrill, John Podesta, Cheryl Mills and Philippe Reines hammered out the contents of this one tweet — a tweet for Pete’s sake.
The irony is, the final approved tweet Nick Merrill emailed out with the message “Please send now” included a typo.
I wrote at the time:
All that hard work and nobody noticed the final tweet said, “whey” instead of “they?”
The funniest part of that chain is Philippe Reines replying “Nice work everyone.”
I don’t know what made me laugh harder. His praising the “nice work” in composing a single 140-character tweet that included a typo. Or that he doesn’t seem to find it peculiar that it takes a dozen people to compose a single 140-character tweet.
Hillary loves to mock Donald Trump for his tweeting. Now, thanks to WikiLeaks, we know that it takes a battalion of people to compose one single tweet on Hillary’s timeline.
Come on! It’s hilarious!
At least Trump is capable of writing his own tweets without a committee giving their advice and rewrite suggestions.
So if you think that Hillary sat down and wrote up that statement on Weinstein, you probably also think Macedonian content farms were responsible for her losing.
And trust me. The reason it took them five days to respond is they had to wait until everyone had a chance to weigh in and get the statement just right.
They needed to compose a statement that – in its brevity – could not in any way be parsed for subtext.
So they kept it short. And they made the focus Hillary’s trademark “woman-power-I-defend-victims-of-sexual-assault” drivel.

Yeah. That was the idea. Plus, it’s hard for Hillary to show emotion when she had nothing to do with the creation of that statement.
Let’s be honest. There’s nothing genuine about Hillary Clinton.
And that includes Hillary’s breathless horror over the now infamous Access Hollywood tape.
Everything is scripted and approved by committee.
A year ago, it suited Hillary to show emotion over Donald Trump’s boorish words.
But Weinstein’s actual behavior? Not so much. After all, Weinstein was one of her biggest supporters.
And despite their best efforts to concoct a statement that could not be parsed, what we learn from this bloodless 38-word statement is clear.
And that’s this:
Even when faced with glaring evidence of actual sexual assault by one of her biggest supporters, Hillary’s first priority remains the same: to cover her own ass.
And she does it by leaving it up to a committee to script the perfect bloodless response.
