Hillary is one of the most honest politicians, based on her record
By Roger Caldwell
Jill Abramson, a former reporter for the Wall Street Journal, as well as an Executive Editor of the New York Times, had this to say about Hillary’s honesty: “As an editor, I’ve launched investigations into her business dealings, her fundraising, her foundation and marriage. As a reporter my stories stretch back to Whitewater. I’m not a favorite in Hillaryland. That makes what I want to say next surprising. Hillary Clinton is fundamentally honest and trustworthy.” Hilary has been in American’s public eye for over three decades, and she has never been convicted of any wrongdoing, or criminal actions. She is actually one of the most truthful candidates of either party in the 2016 election season.
Politifact, the Pulitzer prize-winning fact-checking project, determined that Hillary is more honest than most politicians they have tracked over the years.
This does not mean that Hillary is not a politician, and all politicians know how to massage the truth, and get on the flip-flop train. But she is no worse than the rest of the bunch.
Many Americans have gotten Hillary mixed up with scandals, and they think her behavior is morally or legally wrong. It is very easy to convict her of wrongdoing with a scandal, but most accusers fail to point out that she has always been cleared of any wrongdoing.
Right now in Hillaryland, she is accused of hosting a personal email server that might have made classified documents less secure, even though the documents in question were not classified as secret at the time she received or sent them. After months of investigations, no one has accused her of doing anything wrong, or breaking of any laws, and it doesn’t appear as if anyone will.
On the other hand, Donald Trump has been accused by Politifact as being one of the least honest candidates they have ever analyzed. Everyone who follows Trump politics knows that Trump University was a scam, and no one knows the real number he has claimed bankruptcy. Instead, of Trump calling Hillary a liar, maybe he should release his tax records, so that Americans can know the truth about him.
Since we are on the subject of money, everyone knows that the Clintons are loaded. The Clintons are two of the smartest people on the planet, and their speaking fees start at $200,000. As my friend says, “don’t hate the player, hate the game.”
The majority of Hillary’s speeches were to organizations such as; American Camping Association, Ebay, Cisco, Xerox, United Fresh Produce Association, A&E Television Networks, U.S. Green Building Council, Gap, National Association of Convenience Stores, and many more. She has given nearly 100 speeches since she has left the State Department, and only eight were to Wall Street.
It is obvious that Hillary has made millions on the speaking circuit, but it appears that her haters think she is being controlled by Wall Street. Only 8% of her speeches were paid by Wall Street, but both candidates will solicit money from Wall Street, and that does not mean they should be accused with some sort of impropriety.
Every former President has a foundation and library, and the Clintons have been extremely transparent with theirs. Every president has millions of dollars in their foundation, but the Clintons have been able to amass $2 billion since 2001. Bill Clinton has stated that his family’s foundation is one of the most transparent charities in America, when compared to the other president’s foundations.
As a couple, they have made a fortune, and Hillary is not working for a salary. She will stand for the rights of all Americans, and she will react to dangerous situations around the world, with the temperament of a seasoned and experienced professional. Hilary has never stolen from America, and there is no reason for her to start now.
