Hillary Clinton Corruption
Hillary Clinton was born in Chicago, Illinois on October 26, 1947. She earned a degree in law from Yale University where she met her future spouse Bill Clinton. Hillary served as first lady from 1993 to 2001 and as a U.S Senator from 2001 to 2009. She also served as the United States Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013 under President Obama. Hillary Clinton ran for president with the Democratic Party in 2016 but was defeated by Donald Trump.
Benghazi was a coordinated attack on September 11, 2012 on two U.S government facilities in Libya that resulted in 4 casualties. Hillary Clinton was directly responsible and even admitted it saying, “As I have said many times since September 11, I take responsibility.” She later resigned on February 1, 2013. The House Committee designated to report on the Benghazi attacks released an 800 page report condemning wrongdoing on Hillary’s behalf on June 28, 2016. If Clinton could not fulfill her duty as the Secretary of State then she surely wouldn’t have been able to resolve any problems or conflicts that would have come about if she was elected president in 2016. Why would she run if she knew she was not competent enough? The answer lies in the fact that the Clinton family will not stop trying to be the center of attention. Even after she lost she has been traveling across America with her husband explaining what went wrong in the 2016 elections.
In addition to Hillary’s lack of responsibility during the Benghazi incident, she also showed carelessness when it came to her emails. After Hillary was sworn in as secretary of state she set up a single email server for both of her personal and work related emails. This resulted in the leaking of thousands of government emails some even included classified information. 55, 000 pages of leaked emails were turned into the State Department. When questioned why she did it she said it was for “convenience”. Moreover, in an ABC interview Hillary was asked about the whole email scandal and she replied saying, “Well it was allowed, and the rules have been clarified since I left about the practice. Having said that, I have said many times that it was a mistake, and if I could go back I would do it differently.” A report conducted by the inspector general stated that only some usage of a personal email is allowed and not an entire usage like in Hillary’s case. Hillary also didn’t follow protocol when it comes to sending sensitive information using a person email account by failing to consult with the Bureau of Information Resource Management. Hillary even failed to show that her personal email account had the security necessary for her to be allowed to send classified or sensitive information through it adding to the illegality of her actions. Hillary failed to follow proper protocol as a member of the State Department and as a result is responsible for the leaking of classified emails.
Furthermore, Hillary disrespected about 31 million Americans by calling them “deplorable”. She said that half of Trump’s supporters are “deplorable” and that they are “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic—you name it”. Deplorable is an adjective that means “deserving strong condemnation” or “shockingly bad in quality”. However, it is very unlikely that half of Trump’s supporters were racist and sexist when 41% of them were female and 21% were non-white. These statements also reveal her immaturity and desperation during the elections.
Not only has Hillary lied to many Americans, offended many Americans, and failed to comply with government protocol, but she also stole the DNC nomination from Bernie Sanders and rigged the elections in her favor. During Hillary’s campaign the DNC needed a $2 million loan to cover their debts. Their only hope was to rely on the Clinton campaign to cover their expenses and keep the party alive. Hillary quickly took advantage of he party’s misfortunes and took control of the DNC. She provided it with the necessary funds to cover basic costs while she used the DNC to bypass FEC law and receive extra campaign funds from the DNC’s victor fund which was supposed to go to the victor of the DNC nomination. Later, Donna Brazile, former interim chair of the DNC, uncovered and released documents to the public that described how the DNC would give Hillary control of all of the DNC strategies, funding, and finances in exchange for Hillary investing in the DNC and raising money for them. This would empower Hillary to wrongfully steal the DNC nomination from Bernie Sanders.
In conclusion, Hillary Clinton has lied to the public, failed to follow protocols, and insulted many Americans to achieve the title of president, which she is not competent enough for, but pursued anyway to line her pockets and maintain a position of publicity.
