THERE GOING AFTER HILLARY NOW: Greta Van Susteren Joins Patriot Trey Gowdy In The Fight Against The Clinton’s

The American public was sad to hear that Greta Van Susteren will withdraw from Fox News.

Recently, Susteren has become the center of media attention once more when a released email revealed that Hillary Clinton spokesperson Philippe Reines offended her to that extent, that she asked for an apology.

The leaked email shows Reines calling Greta “malleable”, meaning she could be easily bent to someone’s will. Of course, this isn’t true of Greta.

Greta took immediate offense to the letter, and demanded that an apology be made.

“Dear Nick, please convey this message below directly to the Secretary,” she began. “If you don’t intend to do so, please let me know and I will try other avenues to get this email to her.”

Read Greta’s full letter below:

“Dear Madam Secretary, I have always been respectful and probing. Philipe in an email to you – which is now being published in many news organizations – referred to me as “malleable.” Of course this is insulting to me as a journalist but I can take insults. However, I don’t think it fair when my interviews have always been respectful and probing and fair. Philipe mistakes respectful and probing and fair for “malleable.” I would very much like to interview you now about this and get this cleared up for my reputation. This would be fair – just as I have been fair. Best, Greta Van Susteren.”

Hillary’s spokesman Nick Merrell responded to the letter with the following:

“First, let me start by saying that in my many years working for HRC, I have rarely heard her or staff more consistently convey respect for a journalist than for you. While at State when you joined us on the road and during our extensive conversations leading up to the book tour. Your interviews with HRC haven’t been because you’re easy on her, in fact I’d argue she suffers in performance when she’s up against a lesser intellect. You challenge her, and do so on substance, you’re tough, lawyerly, and fair. And that’s why you are someone she likes personally and respects professionally.

So while I’m not going to get into a game of dictionary here, that has been my experience, and while that single email from years ago is unfortunate, it’s not representative of anyone’s view.
Having said all of that, I think we all understand that this transpiring was not helpful to you in the least, and I’m very sorry about that.

I think I could make a reasonable argument for why putting HRC out with you right now would not be to anyone’s benefit, but the truth is that we are simply not there yet. It doesn’t mean we aren’t thinking things through more broadly, but the focus of the campaign as it ramped up and in the short period since the launch has been to engage voters in the early states, first and foremost, and raise money.

We’ve started to do some local interviews here and there, but that’s been it.
I’ve included Jennifer here to make sure you know that everyone is fully aware of what happened and your reaching out to us about it.

Happy to talk about this more at your convenience, and I hope we can continue to maintain your working relationship with us, and with HRC.

    Well, I have made many calls to fox news myself during this campaign and believe me even I know I haven’t always been politically correct, but I wasn’t running for President , so to be totally honest, I really didn’t give a shit which is much like I feel now. I personally don’t care for your way of reporting, that’s beside the point, I just wanted to tell you, because I don’t want to be seen in the same livht as most of the media that seems to love to sensationalize a story till you have totally ruined the person you are doing the story on.I won’t apologize for how I feel, for it was the media that made me this way in the first place. Now to the problem at hand, I do feel like you should be allowed to redeem your self and your integrity as a journalist.Thus the only reason I am speaking to you in the first place.Let me tell you what I got from that reply you received from the email you hadsent asking HRC to contact you about the matter.First off, you don’t matter enough to her to contact you herself.Then all that was said was just passive remarks to pacify you. If ever you thought there was a chance that he was telling the truth, just take those rose colored glasses of cause Hun, that was screaming just how Malleable you really are. I am sorry, it is not my intention to hurt your feelings just thought you might appreciate some honesty like the rest of us do. Please, Forgive me if this is simply to blunt and hurts your feelings.
