On March 4, 2015, Congress issued a subpoena for Hillary Clinton’s private email server that illegally contained classified information.
The same day, thanks to WikiLeaks, we know State Department officials were still discussing which emails to delete — apparently to avert the subpoena.
By March 10, 2015, Clinton had announced at a press conference she had deleted nearly 32,000 emails from a private server which could have been used for a congressional investigation. She claimed they had been deleted months earlier. But is that completely true?
While Clinton maintains it was a simple mistake, the truth is it was a deliberate attempt to prevent imprisonment. Clinton destroyed evidence to prevent herself from looking bad, and it is the tip of the iceberg in a long list of deceitful and criminal activity on the part of the Clintons.
Here are the stories of Clinton’s past and present, to show the ultimate collusion she has systematically built through her political career.
“The Stain of Scandal” -The Free Press, Detroit
The Clintons have dominated the scandal legacy. They have built a culture beginning at Whitewater; Bill and Hillary were cleared of wrongdoing while their accomplices served prison time for pressured real estate deals in the 1990s.
Clinton continued this legacy while she was in power, as she prioritized private Secretary of State meetings with those who donated significantly to the Clinton Foundation of which she was on the board. For decades the Clintons serve as the center of the immoral, corruption within our political system.
“The People Had Enough” -The Plain Dealer, Cleveland
The Hillary for Prison movement has exploded. With a website filled with merchandise for the cause, it is clear the people have had enough of Hillary Clinton’s lies and are gearing up for action against her this November. After the most recent presidential debate Donald Trump pledged an investigation into Hillary for all of her illegal actions and hopes to bring back rule of law for the people.
“Pervading Distrust” -The Post, Denver
Thanks to WikiLeaks, the American people know more about Hillary Clinton now than ever before. The latest news dumps showed Hillary had political relationships with CNN, The New York Times, The Boston Globe and CNBC. Clinton took the outlets which are supposed to provide people with the truth and skewed them to her benefit. The reports also shed light onto Hillary’s use of power to benefit her and her husband during her time as Secretary of State. The Washington Times of Oct. 2016 explains that during the 2010 Haiti earthquake special attention was given to those considered “FOB” (Friends of Bill) as well as “WJC VIPS” (William Jefferson Clinton VIPs). The State Department has even been seen to go as far as polling Haitian people to see how favorable Mr. Clinton is and sharing those results with him. These are just two of the many instances regarding both personal matters and policy Clinton has deliberately misled the American people on.
“Sorrow Rather Than Anger”-The Tribune, Chicago
Perhaps most distasteful of all of Clintons actions has been her mockery of women and sexual assault. In the second presidential debate Clinton lied to an audience of Americans as well as the girl she laughed at nearly 30 years ago for being raped. She pretended she had never spoken to Roy Reed about a case she viciously defended as a public defender and how happy she was to see the child rapist released from prison. Clinton also consistently silenced women who experienced sexual assault at the hands of her own husband. While this enrages many, it is also a sad reminder of Clinton’s ability to deceive so many into believing she is an advocate for women.
“Admits to withholding information”-The Washington Post
Finally, the headline that sums up the necessity for Clinton’s political demise. Thanks to the Oct. 7 WikiLeaks information release, it is now clear Clinton was in communication with Obama’s Department of Justice throughout the investigation and in May 2015 was involved in communications about when emails should be released. Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon discusses information given to him by “DOJ folks” regarding when emails will be released, but two months after Clinton deliberately deleted 32,000 emails. Early exchanges among Clinton staffers released also prove her campaign pushed for Loretta Lynch’s appointment as Attorney General due to her “cordial relationship” with Clinton. Clinton used her connections to destroy and withhold evidence from investigation in order to save her political career.
However, these headlines are not about Hillary Clinton. In fact, they are almost 40 years old. These are the headlines surrounding the impeachment of Richard Nixon.
The first article of Nixon’s impeachment was the “plan designed to delay, impede, and obstruct the investigation” and “to cover up, conceal and protect those responsible.” It wasn’t the break-in of the Watergate Hotel that brought down the presidency; it was the cover-up, which is just what we have here.
Now it is Clinton’s turn to have her political career destroyed for the same charge. Nixon received all of this negative media due to one illegal act which ruined his career. Clinton has built her career on criminal activity. However, Clinton has been freed of charges consistently. Despite deleted evidence, communicating with investigators and acting with complete negligence for our national security, Clinton is still on our presidential ballot rather than in prison.
Not even those who investigated her understand why Clinton got off. A Fox news report from Oct. 2016 reveals that nearly all of the investigators working on the case believed Clinton should be charged and lose her security clearance. Many were baffled by the decision not to prosecute. One senior FBI official told Fox, “We were floored while listening to the FBI briefing because Comey laid it all out, and then said ‘but we are doing nothing,’ which made no sense to us.”
Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement on the matter, calling for an independent counsel to take up the case: “Hillary Clinton would lie if it were in her interests to tell the truth. The fact that there was a criminal conspiracy in the State Department to delete Clinton’s emails the same day the Congressional subpoena for those records was served, shows that Clinton’s cover-up, where she claimed the emails had been deleted for months, would have made Richard Nixon blush. This is a smoking gun. The emails apparently were not deleted until they were prohibited by law not to be deleted. This is destruction of evidence, which in itself is criminal. Given this information, the Department of Justice must appoint a special prosecutor today to investigate Clinton, her team, and the Justice Department that covered up obstruction of justice.”
It’s simply unbelievable, except because it’s the Clintons, you can believe it. Hillary Clinton built her career on fabricating the truth and corrupting evidence, charges which destroyed the presidency of Nixon, but seem to have made Clinton believe she is invincible. If she has placed herself above the rule of law now, it is terrifying what she will do as President. You were forewarned.
