In an interview with ABC News Australia, Hillary Clinton used a bizarre choice of words to describe James Comey’s role in the 2016 election. She said Comey “shivved” her.
Shivving is common prison slang for killing someone by stabbing them with a sharpened object. Does Hillary not know this?
Take a look at this report:
Hillary Clinton: How losing to Donald Trump changed her
I have been following Hillary Clinton’s career since the mid-1990s as a journalist in Washington reporting on the first term of Bill Clinton’s presidency.
The Hillary Clinton I knew then would not have said publicly she had been “shivved” by the former head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, James Comey.
She referred to Comey’s handling of the investigation into her use of a private email server as secretary of state, in particular the letter written by Comey days before the election re opening the investigation: “He did shiv me, yeah … we also know that opponents of mine, like former mayor Rudy Giuliani, knew something was coming.
“So there was clearly an effort to derail my campaign at the end.”
In response to Comey’s remark before Congress that thinking he may have influenced the election made him “mildly nauseous”, she said: “It makes me sick.”
Such a weird choice of words. Even the way she said it was strange.
