There's something darkly instructive about Chelsea Manning's attempted suicide just a day after the FBI announced that it would not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton.
Manning, as you might recall, is the Benedict Arnold turncoat who exposed U.S. war crimes and is now serving 35 solitary years in a military prison in Kansas. This venomous traitor should not be confused with Mrs. Clinton, who created a private e-mail server to avoid FOIA requests, shared classified material with her posse of yesmen, sold her influence in the State Department to the highest bidders, attempted to destroy evidence of criminal wrongdoing, and will almost certainly be our next president.
The media has focused primarily on how Clinton mishandled sensitive or classified material, but the worst of her crimes have remained hidden from the public. As Politico points out, there's a very good reason why Hillary deleted thousands of "private" emails:
[T]here's an email silence in June 2010, when Hillary Clinton was in South America for a series of high-level meetings. According to her memoir, "by coincidence" Bill was in Bogota, Colombia, apparently for Clinton Foundation work, at the same time she was in the country. Also there with Bill was Frank Giustra, one of the Clinton Foundation's largest contributors. Bill, Hillary and Giustra reportedly had dinner together, and the next morning, Bill met with Colombia's President Alvaro Uribe, followed immediately by Hillary's meeting with Uribe. In the weeks that follow, Giustra's companies scored concessions from the Colombian government on matters ranging from oil to timber.
The Clinton Foundation is a massive money-laundering scheme. Money goes in, State Department weapons deals come out.
Sorry, but it's not a vast right-wing conspiracy: The Clintons have been up to their eyeballs in shady deals and corruption scandals since their humble country bumpkin beginnings in Arkansas, which strangely enough was the staging ground for a massive CIA cocaine drug smuggling operation while Bill was governor. Coincidence or fate?
Enough already. When you're taking millions of dollars from the Saudis, and private rides on the "Lolita Express", you have no business being anywhere near the White House.
Just imagine the nightmare before us: Four years of Hillary Clinton lecturing the rest of the world about human rights and the rule of law; four years of Libya-style "humanitarian interventions"; four years of Boss Tweed in a pantsuit.
Crime doesn't pay? Tell that to the Clintons. Lie, cheat and steal and maybe one day you can be president, too.
