Following a failed bid in the primary for President of the United States in 2008, Hillary threw her support behind Barack Obama and he in turn tasked her to serve as his secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.
Besides leading the Obama “apology tour” across the globe, her tenure as Secretary of State was mostly benign with a few notable exceptions.
In Jan 2010, a massive earthquake struck Haiti. Hillary flew into Haiti making lots of promises and encouraging the Haitians that America was their friend. Bill Clinton was then sent in acting as the UN special envoy to Haiti and co-chair of Interim Haiti Reconstruction Commission. Both were seen frequently in the media asking Americans to give money to the relief effort.
But Haitians complained of being shut out of the decision making process of rebuilding their country and very little of the aid money actually got to poor people in Haiti. Instead of using monies for the benefit of impoverished Haitians, the money ended up in the pockets of major Clinton donors who had economic stakes in Haiti.
Some projects championed by the Clinton’s, such as the building of industrial parks and posh hotels, cost a great deal of money and offered scarce benefits to the truly needy. Port-au-Prince was supposed to be rebuilt; it was never rebuilt. Projects aimed at creating jobs proved to be bitter disappointments. Haitian unemployment remained high, largely unaffected by the funds that were supposed to pour into the country.
Famine and illness continued to devastate the island nation.
Hillary’s Blood Money & The Rape of Haiti
Perhaps the most flagrant behavior of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was her response to the 2012 attacks on the US mission in Benghazi, Libya resulting in the deaths of four American citizens, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.
Clinton responded, “What difference, at this point does it make?” in a 2013 Senate hearing.
I say it makes allot of difference to freedom loving Americans. It makes allot of difference to those families who lost loved ones in the attack.
Why did Secretary Clinton deny requests for additional security at the consulate prior to the attack?
Why did the Whitehouse and State Department represent the attack as a spontaneous protest over an anti-Muslim video?
Were they covering up a CIA presence in Benghazi smuggling weapons from Libya to anti-Assad rebels in Syria?
Many questions remained unanswered and will likely continue to be unanswered for the foreseeable future.
Following the attack in Benghazi, Hillary lied to the families of the slain Americans, telling them the attacks were a response to a YouTube video. She later denied that she ever told the Benghazi victims’ families that the video was to blame. Charles Woods, father of Tyrone Woods said that Hillary told him, “We are going to have the filmmaker arrested who was responsible for the death of your son.”
Trey Gowdy Demands Answers On Benghazi
Nobody has been brought to justice!
It was discovered by the House committee investigating the attack on the US mission in Benghazi that Secretary Clinton violated government rules by exclusively using a private email account kept on her private computer server in her home during her four years at the State Department.
In typical Clinton style, Hillary lied. Clinton’s office said she only used one private email address during her time at the State Department, while the New York Times discovered that Hillary used more than one address.
Clinton asserted that her use of a private email account was aboveboard and allowed under State Department rules. However, a State Department inspector general report said that Hillary “did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act.”
She further asserted that she did not send or receive classified material on the private account. However, a government review of the emails determined that some of the emails were deemed classified.
In July 2016, FBI Director James Comey announced he would not recommend charges against Hillary because there was no “intent”.
In essence, Comey declared that Hillary was guilty, and despite evidence of what he called, “extreme negligence”, she would not be charged. He went on to say, “To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions.”
Though, not for Hillary.
It should be noted that James Comey has a long history of cases ending favorable to the Clinton’s, [Jerome R. Corsi, WorldNetDaily] leaving one to wonder about his role as protector of the Clintons.
It was Comey, then serving as a deputy attorney general in the Justice Department, who in 2004 limited the scope of the criminal investigation of Sandy Berger, keeping Clinton administration officials out of the investigation. Berger was being investigated for removing classified documents from the National Archives that should have been turned over to the commission investigating the 9/11 terror attacks. In 2005, Berger plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge and was fined $50,000, sentenced to 100 hours of community service and two years probation, and his national security license was stripped for two years. In the investigation of Clinton’s private email server, emails between Berger and Hillary Clinton showed he had been advising Clinton while she served as secretary of state and had access to classified information.
The crony connections between the Clinton’s, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Sandy Berger, and Cheryl Mills (White House Counsel for President Bill Clinton whom she defended during his 1999 impeachment trial), seem to intersect with the Washington law firm Hogan & Hartson, which prepared tax returns for the Clinton’s beginning in 2004 and did patent work for the software firm MX Logic Inc. that developed the email encryption system used in the private email server used by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Berger worked as a partner in Hogan & Hartson from 1973 to 1977, and between gigs working for the Carter administration, the Dukakis presidential campaign, and Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign in 1992. Loretta Lynch worked for Hogan & Hartson from 2002 through 2010. Mills worked there for two years starting in 1990.
It was also Comey who appointed Patrick Fitzgerald as special counsel who eventually convicted “Scooter” Libby, a top aide to then Vice President Dick Cheney, of perjury and obstruction of justice in a case based on the accusations of Valerie Plame and her former ambassador husband, Joe Wilson – both partisan supporters of Bill and Hillary Clinton – that Libby outed her as a CIA agent.
It was revealed in 2018 that that the Chinese government was monitoring her email communications in real time after hacking into her account and planting malicious code that allowed Beijing’s spies to see every email she received as well as her responses.
As reported by The Daily Caller, a Chinese-owned company operating on behalf of the government in Washington, D.C. “hacked [Clinton’s] private server throughout her term as secretary of state and obtained nearly all her emails,” according to two sources who have been briefed on the matter.
The hacking and malicious code planted by Chinese spies was discovered by the Intelligence Community Inspector General’s (ICIG) office, which said that nearly all of Clinton’s email exchanges were immediately sent to a “foreign entity,” according to Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, who divulged the information during a July 12 House Judiciary Committee hearing in which lawmakers were deposing fired anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok.
The FBI denied in a statement that Hillary Clinton’s emails were hacked by China, saying it had found no evidence that the private servers she used while secretary of state had been compromised.
The Clinton Foundation
Clinton Cash is a feature documentary based on the Peter Schweizer book, Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, investigating how Bill and Hillary Clinton went from being “dead broke” after leaving the White House to amassing a net worth of over $150 million, with over $2 billion in donations to their foundation. This wealth was accumulated during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as US Secretary of State through lucrative speaking fees and contracts paid for by foreign companies and Clinton Foundation donors.
When Hillary became Secretary of State (2009 – 2013), she promised that the Clinton Foundation would stop accepting donations from foreign governments. However, tax returns disclosed extensive donations continued to be made by foreign governments in 2012 and 2013, while Hillary was Secretary of State.
In 2010, the Clinton Foundation arranged a $2 million pledge to a power company partly owned by a wealthy blond divorcee – who some say is the frequent visitor to his home nicknamed “Energizer.”
Very large contributions to the Clinton Foundation and exorbitant speaking fees for Bill Clinton were proven to coincide with favors granted by the State Department and signed off by then-secretary Hillary Clinton.
Too Big to Fail… Too Big to Jail
The Clinton’s have profited directly and indirectly from their connections to the “too big to fail” banks (HSBC, Barclays, JPMorgan, Citigroup, Royal Bank of Scotland and UBS).
- HSBC, fined for their role in a massive money-laundering scandal, gave up to $200,000 to the Clinton Foundation. When acting as U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Loretta Lynch may have acted in a cover-up, not prosecuting the bank for money laundering but rather allowing HSBC to enter into a “deferred prosecution” settlement where the bank paid a $1.9 billion fine and admitted “willful criminal conduct” in exchange for dropping criminal investigations and prosecutions of HSBC.
- Citigroup employees have contributed to the Clinton’s $765,192 since 1989.
- Employees at JPMorgan have donated $423,279 since 1991.
Clinton vs Trump 2016
After leaving the State Department, Hillary joined her daughter and husband as named members of the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation and the foundation began accepting donations from foreign governments. Clinton resigned from the foundation’s board in April 2015, when she began her second presidential campaign.
Hillary Clinton has blamed her 2016 Presidential election loss to Donald Trump on pretty much everyone and everything, most notably Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s emails.
While Clinton received 2.87 million more votes than Trump did, Trump received a majority of electoral votes and won upset victories in the pivotal Rust Belt region. Of course, this encouraged fellow Democrats to call for the elimination of the electoral college.
Seems as though Democrats were unwilling to accept the results of the election, talk of impeachment began even before Trump took office. A December 2017 resolution of impeachment failed in the then Republican-led House by a 58–364 margin. On September 24, 2019, Nancy Pelosi announced that six committees of the House of Representatives would undertake a closed-door formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
