    If her answer is "I was afraid to go against the machine" do you seriously think anyone, at this point, will argue with her? Obvious answer is obvious answer. People NEVER have to explain why they sucked up to a dangerous, powerful person. I don't understand why you keep harping on the tweets as though grown ups don't know that people fib to be polite all the time. Thats the nature of being a grown up.  "You look marvelous! "  "That dress doesn't make you look fat!"  "No one noticed your obvious pratfall!"  This is how grown up society and political society work.  You are like a biblical literalist or a toddler with your inability to grasp nuance. Yes, sometimes grown up people fail to tell the absolute truth to protect someone's feelings. Later, when the issue is quite serious and involves federal charges, they decide to be honest about what really happened. This is so not surprising.
