As bad as the news about Hillary’s law skirting is, it seems everyday it only gets worse. ABC and NBC have said that the word corruption and Clintons are being used far too often together, maybe they are right. What is being revealed goes beyond corruption to actual felonies, and it keeps piling up.
Hillary herself is no stranger to controversy, who can forget White Water and the Rose Law Firm. She smelled of corruption then, but a slew of fall guys took the hit for her. Then there was the FBI files, the firings at the Travel Office, and the fund raising involving foreign nationals. Through it all, she managed to keep out of jail, and on track to the presidency.
The Clinton Foundation, formed ostensibly to fund the Presidential Library (at least that is what its charter says), was turned into a cornucopia of corruption and influence peddling. It is not only a felony to co-opt charity funds for personal use, it is just as illegal to utilize the charity for any personnel benefit. This includes the many political events the Foundation has hosted. Even the admittance in emails that fundraising was commingled with booking speeches was a breaking of the law. These things would of translated into trouble for anyone not named Clinton. Add to that the private jet rides, the free hotel rooms, fancy dinners, and payments for Chelsea’s wedding, and you have a treasure trove of misconduct. This isn’t even the worse of it.
The Clinton Foundation is not authorized to do any of the work it claims to be doing. This includes the funneling of money to cronies to do “charity work” in return for doing them favors. She also violated ethics rules when, as Secretary of State, she solicited donations from foreign governments and organizations, much of which seemed to have an implicit tit for tat. There seems to be even out and out theft, in one case alone an organization claims to have given 100 million more than the foundation says it received.
The countless foreign ties, and questionable dealings with the same, that Clinton Inc. has had goes beyond the pale of anyone else in history. Hundreds of millions were donated to the foundation by foreign entities, many even as negotiations were ongoing with the countries involved.
Additionally, much of the billions given to the Clintons came from small donors. People who gave to Bill and Hillary in blind faith, only to have that money squandered, given out as favors in the form of contracts to cronies.
The Clinton Foundation’s main function, by all appearances, is to to facilitate the collection of bribes and payoffs, which in turn are used to do the same in the form of contracts to those the Clintons owe favors to, or need assistance from. They also rake in money from those duped into thinking the foundation is a legitimate charity.
None of this even takes into account email gate. Just today it was revealed that by the New York Post that she had her Filipino maid print out classified material for her. This was not ignorance, or even careless disregard. It was a callous, arrogant act that put the nation at risk. An email account that the FBI is highly certain was by hacked by at least 5 foreign governments, an illegal server used for official business, and now this. All of this is by definition a violation of The Espionage Act many times over.
Espionage Act, Section F: Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense, (1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, or (2) having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer—Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.
Bill and Hillary have been bastions of corruption for some time, but the evidence now shows it is much worse than anyone could of imagined. Corrupt to the bone, they believe they’re are above it all. Self-absorbed and with an unbridled sense of entitlement, Bill said the other day that his wife deserves to be President. Maybe of the ladies prison knitting club, but she would probably make a mess of that as well.
The truth is, even if Hillary was a saint, her incompetence as Secretary of State would be disqualifying enough to put he out of contention for the United States’ highest office. She made a mess out of the Arab Spring, pushing Libya into a Civil War and the hands of extremists. With Obama, her mishandling of Assad has meant hundreds of thousands of deaths. At least the fiasco in Egypt turned around, no thanks to her. The famous reset of relations with Russia was a complete failure as well, and the Chinese foot mat in Southeast Asia now says America on it. The pullout of Iraq, and the formation of ISIS it allowed, was the worst debacle of this century, probably second only to Chamberlain’s peace treaty with Hitler in the list of worst geopolitical mistakes in the last two hundred years.
Unfortunately, as incompetent as Hillary has been, it can’t compare to her shear audacity when it comes to breaking the law. While Hillary Rodham Clinton has a long history saying stupid lies, and making bad decisions, these could be forgiven to a point. Her defrauding people of their hard earned money for personal gain, and blatant disregard for the safety and security of this country through intentional mishandling of classified material, are not so easily brushed aside. She has proven beyond any doubt that she belongs in prison, not in the Oval Office.
