EmailGate is hardly Hillary Clinton’s first rodeo when it comes to the world of political scandals.
We all know she’s done some dirty deeds done dirt cheap–I’m an AC/DC fan–with Benghazi, but there’s actually been quite a few other scandals the former secretary of state has played a part in.
Here are four of them that you may not remember.
The Clinton-Gore campaign in 1996 allegedly took bribes from Chinese banks and their government to help their dwindling poll numbers. The Chinese embassy in D.C. helped siphon funds into the DNC. Secretary of Commerce Rob Brown(who was killed in a plane crash), at Hillary’s instruction reportedly sold seats on department trade missions to China. Joint congressional hearings were canceled after Democrats threatened to bring up Republican campaign issues and then Monica Lewinsky actually saved this scandal from media attention.
Hillary and her husband were partners in a shady real estate development firm called Whitewater Development Corp in Arkansas. Accusations of impropriety against the Clintons and others soon surfaced, regarding improper campaign contributions, political and financial favors, and tax benefits. Clinton’s friends and majority owners, James and Susan McDougal were jailed for fraud, Clinton’s successor, Governor Jim Tucker, was jailed for fraud along with municipal judges David Hale and Eugene Fitzhugh who worked with James McDougal. The Clintons walked away unscathed, having apparently done nothing wrong.
Drug Dealer Donor Scandal
Convicted drug trafficker Jorge Cabrera apparently made such a big donation to the Clinton’s campaign that he was invited to the White house without Secret Service present.
Craig Livingstone, director of the White House’s Office of Personnel Security “improperly” accessed FBI files on several hundred individuals.
Mrs. Clinton called it a, “completely honest bureaucratic snafu.”
Many of these files were on people from previous Republican administrations. Hillary Clinton hired Livingston and is alleged to have looked at the files and requested this move. She was accused by Republicans of violating privacy rights of individuals she viewed as political adversaries.
It seems like files always have a knack for coming up missing whenever they land in the hands of Hillary Clinton.
Pretty obvious that Clinton isn’t trustworthy, and when you combine all of this together, it doesn’t paint a pretty picture for someone hoping to run for president.
Yet despite all of the evidence of her corruption, people will still vote for her.
