Some people might argue that Hillary Clinton is the slimiest, swampiest, most dishonest politician that America has ever seen. Though this is just an opinion, there is ample evidence available to support this claim.
From her alleged pay to play schemes she conducted as Secretary of State to her endangerment of national secrets over her illegal bathroom server to her lies about dodging sniper fire in Bosnia to her claims of being named after a guy who climbed Mount Everest six years after she was born, Hillary Clinton has a record of being a self-serving and dishonest public servant.
In her latest interview, with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Hillary Clinton sinks to new lows.
Now, before we even begin, keep in mind what has already been discovered from the investigation into Russian collusion during the 2016 election. These are the facts:
The Steele Dossier, the basis for the FISA warrants that were used to spy on political opponents of the Democrats, was compiled by former British spy Michael Steele. Steele was hired by political opposition organization Fusion GPS who was hired by the Washington DC law firm Perkins Coie. The law firm was hired by the DNC and the Clinton Campaign.
What we are left with is the fact that the basis for the Russian collusion narrative, an opposition research document that was passed off by disgraced former members of the Obama administration as an intelligence report, was paid for by the Hillary Clinton Campaign and the DNC.
The Trump administration, during the first two years, was constantly finding itself hindered and obstructed by endless investigations that were sparked by Donald Trump’s political opponents. Some have called this a political coup to reverse the results of the 2016 election, but disgraced Obama administration Deep State member, Peter Strzok, might simply refer to this as an “insurance policy” in the event that Trump won the White House.
Bearing all that in mind, that the entirety of the Russian collusion narrative can be placed at the feet of the Democrat Party’s pocketbooks as well as the now-fired intelligence officials who appeared to be willing accomplices in the scheme, it seems beyond belief that Hillary Clinton would be the one to continue the claims that the Russian collusion narrative was anything other than a Democrat Party effort to reverse the results of the 2016 election.
“I tell you Rachel, that I have met with most of the candidates who are running this time and answered their questions.
I always tell them that you can run the best campaign, you can be the person that gets the nomination, but unless we know how to protect our election from what happened before and what could happen again because there’s greater sophistication about it, you could lose.”
This is a shocking statement. Absolutely shocking.
The very woman whose campaign was responsible for the fake Russian collusion investigation is saying that she is cautioning current Democratic presidential nominees to be vigilant against what happened in 2016.
But it doesn’t stop there.
“…Why should Russia have all the fun? Since Russia is clearly backing Republicans…”
Just a quick pause right here to point out that it was not Donald Trump who whispered to the President of Russia that he would have “more flexibility” to disarm America’s nuclear arsenal after his reelection and it was not Trump’s Secretary of State who delivered a red “reset” button to Russia as a symbol of resetting Russian American relations. Nor was it the Trump administration that allowed Russia to purchase 20% of the uranium-producing capabilities in the United States.
Outside of the false Russian collusion narrative, that was created and paid for by the Democrats, there is very little, if any, evidence that Russia prefers Republicans over Democrats. But let’s not digress. Hillary continues,
“…Since Russia is clearly backing Republicans, why don’t we ask China to back us. Not only that, but China, if you’re listening, why don’t you get Trump’s tax returns. I’m sure our media would richly reward you.”
This may just be the cringiest statement ever uttered by a politician in American history. Possibly even worse than Hank Johnson stating that he was afraid that the island of Guam would capsize.
This is obviously a play on Donald Trump’s calls for Russia, during a press conference, to try to locate Hillary Clinton’s 30,000 emails.
Aside from the awful delivery of the “joke” that only Hillary Clinton could make sound unnatural and robotic, here’s the difference between the two situations.
Hillary Clinton’s emails were subpoenaed, meaning she was legally obligated to hand them over to Congress. The emails had been sitting on her secret bathroom server for over a year, collecting dust.
After the subpoena, she and her lawyers used a sophisticated and expensive technique known as Bleach Bit to erase 30,000 of the 60,000 emails so that, as tray Gowdy put it, “Not even God could find them.”
When questioned, Hillary claimed that those were merely emails about yoga classes and Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. Nothing to see there.
Hillary Clinton’s actions seemed to indicate that she was attempting to destroy potentially incriminating evidence. Possibly evidence that revealed her alleged pay to play schemes, but possibly evidence that revealed much worse. We may never know. What we do know is that when investigators ask to examine objects in your possession and you go out of your way to utterly destroy those objects, it’s safe to assume there was something on those objects that you never wanted to see the light of day.
The media, when learning about the destroyed evidence, seemed almost lackadaisical about it. They showed no interest in getting to the bottom of what exactly Hillary Clinton destroyed. There was not 7-person panel on CNN speculating on what Hillary Clinton was hiding. There was no interest on the part of Rachael Maddow to speculate on what Hillary destroyed.
When Donald Trump said that the American media would be grateful if Russia could find those emails, he was being sarcastic because the American journalists had shown no interest in finding any wrongdoing on the part of Hillary Clinton.
All of this is the exact opposite of what Hillary Clinton is trying to do.
Donald Trump is not legally obligated to release his tax returns. He can if he wants, but he doesn’t have to. Just as he doesn’t have to turn over his Internet browser history, his library book check out history, or his video store rental history.
However, Trump’s tax returns have been turned over to the IRS, as is required by law, and Donald Trump did not destroy his tax returns so that nobody would ever find them.
More importantly, unlike Hillary’s emails, the Mainstream Media actually is clamoring to get a hold of Trump’s tax returns. There is a repeated narrative that Trump MUST be hiding something because he won’t show us his tax returns. This is a narrative that was not pushed very hard when it was Hillary Clinton’s 30,000 destroyed emails.
So when Hillary says the media would richly reward China if China could get a hold of Trump’s tax returns, this is probably accurate. They probably would reward ANYBODY who could get a hold of Trump’s tax returns. There is no joke here and there is no sarcasm here. The media has been treating President Trump, for two years now, in an aggressive and combative manner.
It’s interviews like these that further the argument that Hillary Clinton might just be the slimiest, the swampiest, and the most disingenuous politician to have ever “served” in American public office.
