Month after month, Hillary Clinton's detractors have waited with breathless anticipation for a promised campaign-ending revelation from WikiLeaks. The big day finally arrived ... and it was a letdown of major proportions.
Hillary Clinton's opponents have been salivating for months over a promised WikiLeaks revelation that would end her career. October 3rd was touted as the day of the big announcement, prompting Donald Trump's sleaze-merchant-in-chief, Roger Stone to make this prediction:
Stone's laughable tweet was the culmination of months of similar pronouncements from Clinton's most adamant detractors. But it didn't turn out the way they had hoped.
Overnight, the hashtag #OctoberSurprise began trending as Clinton bashers waited for the big moment. In the wee hours of the morning, the tables turned.
