And as you have noted, not a single one of them has turned up anything substantial.

Clinton conspiracy theorists are like birthers--they never run out of stupid things to believe in and repeat ad nauseam, and not a single one of their claims has any basis in reality. But like birthers, they don't reside in a universe where reality is a requirement.

What's up with right wingers and conspiracy theories, anyway?

It's all they have, since Republicans, with conservative policies like cutting taxes on rich people and talking about slashing Social Security benefits and raising the Medicare eligibility age, can't win elections.

Republicans need raise shinny-object issues that distract from actual policy issues.

"Bush did 9/11"

I still see that whopper thrown out by Liberals every September 11th.

I don't know ANY liberals who make that claim -- NONE.

Where have you seen this, 'thrown?'

Mostly by millenials, many of which are probably Bernie fans. Bernie attracts a rather, how shall I say this, uncouth group of individuals. I do have to give Hillary props, her supporters are generally clean and well-spoken. Bernie's? Not so much.

I'll go further on Clinton Hatred Company and Limited - the cottage industry of ginning up stuff for the last 25 years and have come up with nothing to derail the Clintons. Whitewater, Troopergate, Bengazi, and e-mails. Tell-all books churned out by Wingnut Publishing. All shooting blanks.

They can't get HRC on policy, so they've just have to go with FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) to cloud perceptions, and to keep firing up the "base".

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
