    No you DON'T. Even you know better. No matter your public pronouncements. And no matter HOW even 10 years of FOX's fanciful, fake and conspiratorial garbage. All of it, and no one could muster even ONE charge against her in what was it--7 full fledged investgations? How many run by REPS?

    Not ONE,
