The Democratic candidate for the US Presidency, Hillary Clinton, is scandal-ridden. The life of the Clintons is a mere scandal starting way back with “Whitewater“. To call her “crooked Hillary” seems an understatement, viewing only her four years as Secretary of State. Her judgment and her trustworthiness are nil. Never before has there been in the recent history of the United States a greater conflict of interest of private personal gains (Clinton Foundation) and state power (Secretary of State Clinton).
According to Associated Press, more than half of the people donated to the Clinton Foundation while she was Secretary of State. At least 85 of 154 from private interest who met or talked to her on the phone while she runs the State Department.
From “Whitewater” to Benghazi, Hillary Clinton’s career is paved with lies. The late William Safire from the New York Times called her a “congenital liar”. As the email scandal shows, Clinton has remained true to herself. No other than her longtime aide Huma Abedin exposed the dark side of this self-styled feminist. Abedin said in “a deposition this week that the would-be president refused others access to her emails and lied to congress about Benghazi”. Clinton demanded from her closest aides “that the private emails she mixed with State Department emails not be accessible to ‘anybody'”.
The American political system is politically felted and corrupt to the bones, which is, inter alia, demonstrated by the “accidental” meeting between Bill Clinton and attorney general Loretta Lynch at the airport in Phoenix, Arizona. Shortly afterwards Lynch declared that no charges will be brought against Clinton. Was Lynch out of her mind to meet privately with the husband of a person under investigation? FBI director James Comey had to spend all his rhetorical skills to evade a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton. Not only this case stinks.
By the hour, the news about this corrupt politician who wants to become President of the United States of America shows the dark character of Hillary Clinton. Not only Hillary is “crooked” like Donald Trump put it but also Bill, Loretta Lynch and even Obama because he supports her wholeheartedly. How come that Bernie Sanders endorsed her at the Democratic convention?
The Clinton Foundation seems to be an enterprise for the self-enrichment of the Clinton family. The following example speaks for itself: “Chelsea Clinton is paid $3 Million dollars a year from the Clinton Foundation. ($58,000.00 a week, $1440.00 an hour) plus $75,000.00 for each speech. They have 350 employees. Around 10 Percent of the contributions, they receive go to charities, and they spent more money on office supplies than they gave to Veteran’s organizations in 2015. The meager amount that they did pay out, was squandered in “foreign countries.”
Goodwill Industries CEO earns $2.3 Million a year, employs 318,000 employees, and they help 26.4 million people a year, here in the United States of America”, like a commentator wrote.
That the major fawning media keep quite is an indicator for their complicity with the corrupt political class in Washington D. C. Congress should set up a special investigation committee to bring light into the darkness of Clintons. The non-profit status of the Clinton Foundation has to be revoked and Hillary should face an investigation by a special prosecutor and justify herself to a Grand Jury.
