The mysterious case of Hillary Clinton and her alleged earpiece set the internet ablaze Thursday after Wednesday night's Commander-in-Chief Forum. #HillaryEarPiece was even trending on twitter for most of the morning. The controversy appeared to snowball after website True Pundit published a story citing NYPD sources who confirmed Hillary Clinton was wearing an earpiece during the LIVE event:
"NYPD sources involved with the NBC forum’s security detail confirm Clinton was wearing an ‘inductive earpiece,” the same technology employed by almost all lead Broadway actors to receive forgotten lines and stealth off-stage cues from directors. The flesh-colored earbud is easily concealed. There are no wires running directly to the ear like you see with the units employed by Secret Service protection detail personnel."
Hillary's campaign is aggressively denying the accusations. Two senior Clinton aides told Fox News the report is not true. Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said the earpiece was really a reflection from the TV lights or a camera flash.
Hillary Clinton has been accused of wearing concealed stealth earpieces in the past. As we previously reported WikiLeaks released an email from Huma Abedin to Hillary Clinton dated September 24, 2009 that asked: "Did u take your earpiece or do I need to get it?"
