The good folks at MRC TV have put together a brilliant piece of memory hole journalism that is sure to please the most cynical of Hillary Clinton resisters. For most of us, when we talk about Hillary Clinton led scandals, we quickly recall the Benghazi debacle, her email scandal and the Clinton Foundation corruption. Some of the older folks might also recall the disturbing details involved in the Whitewater scandal from the Clinton’s bad old days in Arkansas. But I’m sure that most of the rest of this list will be an important primer in reminding you of a few more of the many reasons most of us just can’t stand the Clinton family.
Hillary Clinton has been involved in scandals before. Here are some notable ones you may have forgotten.
Chinagate – The Clinton-Gore campaign in 1996 allegedly took bribes from Chinese banks and their government to help their dwindling poll numbers. The Chinese embassy in D.C. helped siphon funds into the DNC. Secretary of Commerce Rob Brown (who was killed in a plane crash), at Hillary’s instruction reportedly sold seats on department trade missions to China. Joint congressional hearings were canceled after Democrats threatened to bring up Republican campaign issues and then Monica Lewinsky actually saved this scandal from media attention.
Travelgate Scandal – Catherine Cornelius, a 25-year-old cousin of Bill’s was allegedly promised the position of director of the travel office. Hillary Clinton then (indirectly) fired seven employees from the United States travel office and replaced them with associates from Arkansas. Records were either nowhere to be found or incorrectly filed. And, there’s a reported attempt to give a White House airline contract to friend. Hillary had the FBI investigate Billy Dole, the head of the travel office, ruining his career who was found to do nothing wrong, but was then audited by the IRS for three years after.
“Billy Dale and his family went through hell thanks to the Clintons, Attorney General Janet Reno, the FBI and the IRS,” Irvine wrote. “Hillary’s greatest crime was not perjury, it was trying to send an innocent man to prison to justify having fired him and his staff without cause.”
“A memorandum by a former Presidential aide depicts Hillary Rodham Clinton as the central figure in the 1993 travel office dismissals, a politically damaging episode that the aide said had resulted from a climate of fear in which officials did not dare question Mrs. Clinton’s wishes,” wrote the NYT in 1996.
Here’s a video primer of some of these disturbing scandals:
