Hillary Clinton: A Deplorable Choice for President. “The Most Dangerous of the Bunch”

Region:
In-depth Report:

Among an array of deplorable Republican and Democrat presidential aspirants, Clinton stands out as the most dangerous and sinister of the bunch – an unrequited war goddess, risking nuclear confrontation if elected.

Her record in office and since leaving government shows support for imperial lawlessness, indifference to human suffering, and addiction to self-aggrandizement, along with using her high office to accumulate great wealth.

Clinton Foundation donors have direct ties to foreign nations, including a Saudi royal family member, corrupt Ukrainian oligarch/former Kiev parliamentarian, and anti-Chavista Venezuelan media mogul.

After she became Obama’s Secretary of State, over a dozen foreign influence peddlers contributed around $68 million.

When she left government, she accepted foreign government donations – including from Argentina, Bosnia, Britain, Canada, China, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, India, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka Ukraine, and the UAE.

As a presidential aspirant, potential conflict of interests are obvious. Federal law prohibits governments, corporations, individuals and groups from contributing to US political campaigns.

Funding Clinton’s foundation buys influence. So does paying her millions of dollars for speechmaking – $2,935,000 from Wall Street banks alone from 2013 – 2015.

Husband Bill profited hugely the same way, their combined yearend 2015 net worth an estimated $111 million.

Both are walking conflicts of interests. As a presidential aspirant, Hillary’s use of public office for self-enrichment warrants close scrutiny for possible serious wrongdoing.

An unclassified January 14 Inspector General of the Intelligence Community letter revealed “several dozen (Clinton) emails containing classified information, determined by the IC element to be at the CONFIDENTIAL, SECRET and TOP SECRET/SAP (Special Access Program) levels.”

“According to the declarant, these documents contain information derived from classified IC element sources…sworn declarations (solely for high-level government official cleared for) need-to-know” information.

Until now, only two Clinton emails were labelled “top secret.” Now it’s known there were many more. She’s been heavily criticized for using her personal server for official government business.

Key is whether she committed a criminal offense. Whether an FBI investigation proves it remains to be seen.
