The Washington Post's Fact Checker has awarded Hillary Clinton four Pinocchios for her claim that FBI Director Comey found her email claims to be truthful. Four Pinocchios is the rating for the very most dishonest claims.

Clinton’s claim that the FBI director said her email answers were ‘truthful’


Clinton earns Four Pinocchios for mischaracterizing the FBI director's remarks about her email setup.

Glenn Kessler | Politics | Jul 31, 2016

. . . As we have seen repeatedly in Clinton’s explanations of the email controversy, she relies on excessively technical and legalistic answers to explain her actions. While Comey did say there was no evidence she lied to the FBI, that is not the same as saying she told the truth to the American public — which was the point of Wallace’s question. Comey has repeatedly not taken a stand on her public statements.
And although Comey did say many emails were retroactively classified, he also said that there were some emails that were already classified that should not have been sent on an unclassified, private server. That’s the uncomfortable truth that Clinton has trouble admitting.

In a contest of Clinton vs. Trump we probably shouldn't engage in a tallying of the WP or Politifact truth telling stats.

I heard that comment from her on CNN today and I literally laughed out loud. It was such a blatant lie, a lie on the level Donald Trump would tell.

Four Pinocchios. Bengazi. Claiming she was shot at.

If only the Republicans hadn't nominated someone even worse.

There's nothing new here... Hillary is liar and it's patently obvious that dishonesty and corruption in government is appealing to the left.

As bad as Trump is, that only proves how bad of a candidate the Hildabeast is.

Trump could go on stage and light babies on fire, and it STILL wouldn't be as bad as that crook Hillary.

And he just might.
But, he's already far surpassed Hillary Clinton on the not qualified to be president scale.

I regard them as equally unacceptable.

So, who are you voting for?

Voting third party so you can vote against them both? That's what I plan to do, but then, the outcome of the election in California is already a given.
