clinton trust problem -- oh really


Rupert Murdoch's New York Post has long had it in for the Clintons but lately the criticisms don't seem so outrageous. See Clinton Foundation Timeline. Bill thinking it's OK to lobby the Attorney General on the email scandal exemplifies the sleaziness and sense of entitlement that has turned lefties as well as righties against the power couple from hell.

Donald Trump is an ogre but his campaign talking points about the Clintons aren't wrong. As summarized by Lambert at Naked Capitalism, they are:

1. Rigged System (Trump: "It’s rigged by big donors who want to keep wages down. It’s rigged by big businesses who want to leave our country, fire our workers and sell their products back into the United States with absolutely no consequences for them.")

2. Corruption ("Together, she and Bill made $153 million giving speeches to lobbyists, CEOs and foreign governments in the years since 2001. They totally own her and that will never ever change, including if she ever became president, God help us.")

3. TPP ("This is the latest Clinton cover-up and it doesn’t change anything. If she is elected president, she will adopt the Trans-Pacific Partnership and we will lose millions of jobs and our economic independence for good. She’ll do this, and just as she has betrayed the American worker on trade at every single stage of her career, and it will be even worse than the Clintons' NAFTA deal, and I never thought it could get worse than that.")

4. Email ("To cover up her corrupt feelings [sic], Hillary illegally stashed her State Department e-mails on a private server. She’s under investigation, but it seems like nothing is going to happen. Even though other people who have done similar things, but much — at a much lower level, their lives have been destroyed.")
