During his 1992 campaign for the presidency, Bill Clinton was
fond of promising America, “You get two for the price of one,”
indicating Hillary Clinton would act as his co-president.
But the nation got much more than it bargained for, as the top
power couple brought a load of baggage with them into the White
House from their days in Arkansas.
After the Clintons moved into the presidential mansion, the
political scandals multiplied – from use of the IRS and FBI to
target political opponents to stalking and harassing subjects of
Bill Clinton’s sexual advances and even attempts to loot
taxpayer-funded items from the White House. Americans also
witnessed capers such as Travelgate, Chinagate, Filegate and
Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades and subsequent impeachment by
the U.S. House of Representatives on charges of perjury and
obstruction of justice consumed more than a year of American
public life and bitterly divided the nation.
In the years since the memorable Clinton presidency, Hillary has
brought America Emailgate and the Benghazi scandal, among
others. New developments in the Clinton Foundation scandals
emerges almost daily.
Now, it’s Hillary’s “turn” to be president, according to her
But in 2015, America is still apparently suffering from “Clinton
fatigue.” Results from a Quinnipiac poll published in April
revealed between 49 and 56 percent of voters in three
significant swing states – Colorado, Virginia and Iowa – believe
Hillary is neither honest nor trustworthy.
Even former California Democratic Party Chairman Bill Press told
WND that controversies surrounding Hillary should convince
members of his own party an uncontested coronation of Clinton as
the party’s 2016 nominee for the White House is a very risky
idea and should encourage other Democrats to throw their hats in
Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican candidate for president, said
Sunday he believes voters will reject Hillary because of the
“cloud of constant scandal she brings to the political process.”
Rubio told Fox News Sunday, “Unfortunately, both under her
husband’s presidency, her time in the Department of State, her
campaign for the president last time and even now, there seems
to be this cloud of constant scandal and things that distract us
from the core issues of the moment.”
Hillary’s “drama” could become a distraction, Rubio warned, at a
time when the stakes are high for America in the 2016 election.
“I just think that at this hinge moment in our history, where we
are asked to make a transition from the past into this new
future, with all the challenges and the opportunities of our
time that we really – the American people are not at a point now
where they are going to be supportive of more drama surrounding
the political process,” he said.
In 2003, ABC News’ Barbara Walters referenced numerous Clinton
scandals from Whitewater to Travelgate and the death of Hillary
law partner Vince Foster in an interview with then-Sen. Clinton.
Walters asked Hillary, “How did you get in this mess where your
whole credibility is being questioned?”
Hillary’s response: “Oh, I ask myself that every day, Barbara,
because it’s very surprising and confusing to me.”
With Hillary making another run for president, don’t get caught
up in the lies and spin! In “Hillary Unhinged: In Her Own
Words,” find out who the true Hillary is with this raw and

With the prospect of another “two-for-one” Clinton presidency
looming, is America ready for a repeat of the Bill and Hillary
“drama” in the White House?
If, as psychologists say, “The best predictor of future behavior
is past behavior,” then a fresh look at the top 20 scandals
involving Hillary is in order.
6) Vince Foster’s 1993 death
Vince Foster was deputy White House counsel and Hillary’s friend
and law partner who had connections to the Travelgate and
Whitewater scandals. In 1993, Foster was found dead in a park
with a fatal gunshot wound to his mouth. As WND reported, his
suicide was the subject of much speculation and three official
Investigations by the U.S. Park Police, the Department of
Justice, the FBI, Congress, Independent Counsel Robert B. Fiske
and Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr concluded Foster’s death
was a suicide. However, as WND reported in 2003, one of Starr’s
key investigators challenged the official line, insisting the
probe’s result was predetermined, only a few plotters were
required to engineer the result, the crime scene was altered and
that major newspaper editors killed stories by reporters
pursuing the truth. The Washington Post reported that federal
investigators were not allowed to enter Foster’s office after
his death, but “White House aides enter[ed] Foster’s office
shortly after his death, giving rise to speculation that files
were removed from his office.”
In his 2005 book “The Truth about Hillary: What She Knew, When
She Knew It, And How Far She’ll Go to Become President,” Edward
Klein wrote of Hillary’s involvement in the effort to remove
The night of [Foster’s] death, Hillary launched one of the most
shameful – and illegal – cover-ups of her entire career.
She sent two of her most trusted White House loyalists – Maggie
Williams, the First Lady’s chief of staff, and Patsy Thomasson,
who was in charge of White House administration – into Foster’s
office to retrieve embarrassing and incriminating documents
related to Whitewater and Hillary’s other personal affairs.
While White House Counsel Bernard Nussbaum barred investigators
from entering Foster’s office, Maggie Williams, Patsy Thomasson,
and Craig Livingston, Hillary’s director of White House
security, removed armloads of files and loose-leaf binders.
“In addition, a White House staffer allegedly tampered with the
titles of several memos and removed the First Lady’s initials in
an effort to erase her role in improper behavior.”
Sounds like Obama and,
Donald Young, Larry Bland and Nate Spencer....
Bland was murdered execution-style on November 17, 2007;
Young was murdered execution-style on December 24, 2007;
Spencer reportedly died of septicemia, pneumonia, and HIV on
December 26, 2007. (Death certificates of Bland and Young, HERE.)
