During the Watergate investigation, Save Jerseyans, Hillary Clinton lied in a legal brief and later removed evidence from public access that would’ve documented her conduct for conspiring to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee, and the rules of confidentiality in a scheme to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation.
Never knew that? It was just the beginning of her long career of deceit.
Since then, she has lied about dodging sniper fire in Bosnia, she misrepresented her record opposing the Iraq War, she misrepresented her role in the Irish Peace Accord, and she misrepresented the extent to which her daughter was in danger on 9/11, fallaciously stating that Chelsea was jogging around the Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001 (when, in fact, she was home in bed watching it on TV).
At one point, Hillary even claimed that she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary; curiously, Edmund Hillary didn’t reach the top of Mount Everest until six years after Hillary Rodham was born. Oops.
Want more examples? Here you go: she lied about supporting NAFTA, she lied about her role in the passage of the Family and Medical Leave Act, she lied about a trip to Africa, and she lied about an “uninsured” woman who died after childbirth.
Her most recent lies are certainly whoppers. As Secretary of State, she lied about Benghazi as a congressional report now clearly verifies that security cuts preceding the Benghazi attack were approved by her, and that White House talking points “describing” the events – in an attempt to mislead the American people – were edited to protect the State Department.
Here’s the relevant question for anyone still on the fence regarding her role in the 2016 contest: if President Obama actually considers his administration the most transparent one in U.S. history (try to contain your laughter for a moment), what can we except from Hillary? Given how much she’s done before even getting started?
But then again, what difference does it make to Hillary’s followers?
