Hillary Clinton is still looking for opportunities to re-litigate the 2016 presidential election.

Her next opportunity will be at Harvard University on May 25, during commencement week, where she will engage in what the university described as "a wide-ranging keynote conversation" with Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey.

Attorney General Healey, an outspoken critic of President Trump, is the perfect person to share a podium with Hillary. She has brought multiple lawsuits against the Trump administration on hot button issues such as immigration, healthcare, and the environment. Ms. Healey said that she “was tearing up” when she cast her vote for Hillary on Election Day. Before the election was even called in Donald Trump’s favor, Ms. Healey stooped to personal insults. “Like any bully, I think he’s a vapid windbag,” she said. Once Donald Trump assumed the office that Ms. Healey believed belonged to Hillary, the Massachusetts attorney general used an interview to accuse him of being “a president who is reckless, who has no regard for the rule of law, who does things that actually hurt our residents, hurt our colleges and universities, hurt our healthcare system, hurt our businesses.”

We can expect the Harvard-hosted exchange between Hillary Clinton and Massachusetts Attorney General Healey to touch on a host of perceived obstacles that purportedly got in the way of Hillary’s rightful destiny to become the nation’s first female president, shattering the proverbial “glass ceiling.” What if former FBI Director James Comey, for example, had not sent his letter to Congress re-opening the email investigation very shortly before the election? What if Russia had not interfered in the election? What if the country were not so sexist and there were not so many “deplorables” eligible to vote in states that Hillary claimed were “looking backwards”? The fact that many voters simply did not trust Hillary Clinton or could not relate to her on a human level is not likely to come up for discussion.

Aside from providing Hillary Clinton another prominent forum at which to receive adulation from a progressive anti-Trump audience, Harvard will be honoring the failed Democratic presidential candidate with the Radcliffe Medal for her "transformative impact on society."

"As an attorney, a first lady, a senator, a secretary of state, and the first woman nominated by a major party for the U.S. presidency, Secretary Clinton has worked tirelessly over the course of decades in the public eye, often under unprecedented scrutiny, to make meaningful change," the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard said in a statement.

However, Ms. Clinton’s actual record, from private attorney to Secretary of State, does not match the hype. As a private attorney at the Rose Law Firm, where she was a partner, Hillary Clinton “helped represent Madison Guaranty, a savings and loan run by James B. McDougal, the Clintons' business partner in the Whitewater land venture,” as The New York Times reported in a 1996 article discussing how copies of billing records describing her work on the controversial matter were “missing” after they had been subpoenaed by Congress and federal investigators. The records just happened to surface about two years later, when a White House aide and former office manager of the Rose firm found them in a storage area located in a private residence floor at the White House.

Indeed, Hillary Clinton has had a long record of hiding the truth, including while she was serving as Secretary of State in the Obama administration. She kept government emails on her private server, thousands of which were deleted despite a congressional subpoena. Hillary claimed that the deleted emails were not work-related, a judgment call that should have been made by an objective fact finder rather than Hillary’s own lawyers. Moreover, where did Hillary Clinton’s official government work as Secretary of State end and her continuing interest in filling the coffers of the Clinton Foundation begin? For example, Vox reported in 2016, “Saudi Arabia gave the foundation up to $25 million, and Clinton signed off on a controversial $29 billion sale of fighter jets to the country. Oil companies gave the foundation around $3 million, and Clinton approved a lucrative gas pipeline in the Canadian tar sands they’d long sought.” Peter Schweizer chronicled many more examples of Clinton double-dealing in his book, "Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich."

Hillary Clinton could have chosen to become the wise elder, mentoring younger women seeking higher office. She could have helped forge a forward-looking agenda for the Democratic Party to run on, including creative ideas to address the concerns of the “forgotten men and women” who helped elect Donald Trump. Instead, Hillary Clinton, with the help of Trump-haters such as her Harvard speaking partner, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, are the ones looking backwards.
