The list of New York’s legendary crime families — the Bonannos, Colombos, Gambinos, Genoveses, and Luccheses — requires this addition: The Clintons.
Hardly a day goes by without Hillary, Bill, or one of their gang landing in hot water. The Clintons’ inner circle teems with people embroiled in scandal, under investigation, or heading into or out of jail.
In a report that surfaced Wednesday, the State Department Inspector General pulverized Hillary’s claims that her outlaw e-mail server was perfectly legal. The report said that Hillary “did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act.”
When staffers warned that her private server was vulnerable to hackers, they were ordered “never to speak of the Secretary’s personal e-mail system again.” Indeed, in a January 9, 2011 email, technology aide Bryan Pagliano wrote, “We were attacked again so I shut [the server] down for a few min.” And when one staffer suggested that Hillary use government email, she chose personal secrecy over national security: “I don’t want the personal being accessible.”
Meanwhile, as many as 49 FBI agents are exploring the criminality and possible intelligence damage wrought by Clinton’s Chappaqua server and the 2,115 classified e-mails it contained. According to Forbes, the Clintons went from “dead broke,” as Hillary put it in early 2001 to earning $230 million through 2014.
This happened while she made between $145,100 and $174,000 annually as a U.S. Senator from 2001 to 2009 and $186,600 as secretary of state through 2013.
What’s the Clinton’s secret? They seemingly wrap their fingers in fly paper — to grab as many Benjamins as possible.
While Hillary was at State, Bill was a speech-making machine. He charged up to $750,000 per appearance, often paid by Ericsson, TD Bank, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and other entities with business before the State Department.
After Hillary left office, she cashed in, too.
As journalist Michael Walsh detailed
in the May 22 New York Post, Hillary racked up $21.6 million in lecture fees between 2013 and 2015, usually at $225,000 each. Cynics might call these down payments for future services rendered, if she wins the White House.
As FoxNews.com’s Malia Zimmerman reported on May 13, Bill Clinton traveled at least 26 times aboard the Lolita Express, a 727 owned by convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Nicknamed after Vladimir Nabokov’s novel about man-girl love, the airplane reportedly features an oversized bed on which passengers had group sex with female teenagers.
Flight logs filed with the FAA show Bill and Epstein’s other guests jetting to the Azores, Brunei, Hong Kong and other destinations. On at least five such excursions, Bill evidently dismissed his Secret Service detail.
Epstein, whose 72-acre Caribbean retreat is dubbed Orgy Island, spent 13 months in prison and house arrest for procuring minors for prostitution.
The FBI and the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Division are probing Governor Terry McAuliffe, D-Va., for possibly taking illegal campaign donations from Chinese businessman Wang Wenliang, CNN revealed on Tuesday. McAuliffe co-chaired Bill’s 1996 re-election campaign and chaired Hillary’s 2008 presidential bid.
Wang reportedly gave $120,000 to McAuliffe’s gubernatorial campaign and $2 million to the Clinton Foundation. According to Time, Wang met
Hillary at a 2013 fundraiser at her Washington, D.C. home.
- Mayor Bill de Blasio, D-N.Y., Hillary’s senatorial campaign manager, is under FBI investigation for possible pay-to-play fundraising among a variety of moneyed interests.
- At least four major donors to and a trustee of the Clinton Foundation have been convicted and even jailed for conspiracy, fraud, money laundering, witness tampering, and other felonies.
- And let’s not forget Ed Mezvinsky, Chelsea Clinton’s father-in-law. He spent five years in federal prison for running a $10 million Ponzi scheme.
Media watchdogs who behave like puppies help the Clintons get away with this.
They say that criminals always return to the scene of the crime. Voters must decide if they will send the Clinton crime family back to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
