Hillary Clinton has a brand new reason for refusing to take a position on the Keystone Pipeline. Now she says she can’t do it because there might be litigation in the future.
Even if there were litigation on Obama’s ultimate position on Keystone, what does that have to do with Hillary Clinton?
She’s previously said that she can’t take a position because she was “involved” in Keystone. Again, so what? She was involved in lots of things as Secretary of State or as a Senator and that hasn’t stopped her from talking about them.
She’s already delivered for her pro-Keystone benefactors, who have paid her and her husband millions in speeches and donations to the Clinton Foundation, by saying that it would probably be approved by the State Department.
Maybe she’s worried that any litigation might focus on the more than 200 emails that were released from the State Department from Paul Elliott, former Hillary campaign aide turned Keystone lobbyist, who was in regular touch with the State Department on Keystone.
One thing is for sure: she’s got another reason for keeping quiet on Keystone.
