Did Hillary Clinton damage 2016 presidential run with Benghazi attack cover up
Typically, when most liberal political kingmakers pontificate about the next Clinton to grasp the presidential mantle, it is done with an air of obvious entitlement. Hillary Clinton has positioned herself for this office ever since her days as a staff attorney for the House Judiciary Committee, which was investigating Watergate.
It was in the congressional backrooms that Hillary, began a pattern of alleged deceitful behavior that would serve her through many a state and federal prosecutorial investigation. These investigations followed her and her husband, Bill Clinton from Arkansas to the White House, and now beyond.
Yet, the most onerous of Hillary claims has been linked to a web of mangled White House storylines concerning Benghazi Consulate security, attack, murders and what the president knew and when did he know it.
Fabrication of events is not new for Hillary Clinton, and according to her former boss Jerry Zeifman, who was “counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee,” Hillary Clinton was fired from her position on the committee as a staff attorney for lying.
The mainstream media kept this embarrassing side note out of the public eye when her husband, Bill Clinton ran for President in 1992 and in her own run for the U.S. seat from New York in 2000.
Yet, Jerry Zeifman, seemed compelled to alert the nation about Hillary Clinton, who in 2006 was making coordinated moves to run for President in 2008. In his book, “Hillary Pursuit of Power,” he stressed, while working on the Judiciary Committee, Clinton, “… engaged in a variety of self-serving unethical practices in violation of House rules.”
Therefore it should be of surprise to no one that she was caught up in purported lies while First Lady of Arkansas as well as First Lady of the United States. These scandals included in Whitewater illegal activities, the Travelgate cover up and her conveniently manufactured lie about coming under attack while visiting Bosnia.
Even though scandal and cover-ups seem to follow her like a bad penny, it is the string of Watergate style congressional performances which may actually be informative as well as the undoing of her presidential aspirations.
Fast forward to September 12th when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appeared in the White House Rose Garden with President Barack Obama to spin yet another web of tangled storylines. This time, Hillary Clinton was joining another president who was involved in denying the truth about the murders of Americans in Benghazi, and not just a break in or a presidential fling.
This time, Hillary Clinton was not manufacturing lies against President Nixon’s ability to obtain legal counsel. Nor was she trying to think up strategic avenues for covering up her sexual predator husband’s dalliances. Americans died! This time, it is congress that is in the driver’s seat, not the mainstream media or liberal pundits trying to cover up the truth.
In December Hillary Clinton will go before congressional committees to investigate what the president knew, when did he know it and what did he do about it. This third time, it may very well be not only Hillary’s presidential aspirations on the line. Perhaps after nearly forty years since the Watergate hearings, she will learn to tell the truth and say, “No, Mr. President, I will not continue to promote a false narrative, because it is illegal and it is wrong to lie to the American people.”
