Clinton mired in controversy, compromised for presidency
Hillary Clinton’s campaign is yet again bogged down in controversy. Evidence has arisen that during her time as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton gave special access to big donors to her charity foundation.
This reporting is coming from the Associated Press, who state that “More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money – either personally or through companies or groups – to the Clinton Foundation.”
They go on to state that the 85 donors Clinton met with “contributed as much as $156 million” and indicates “her possible ethics challenges if elected president.”
The New York Post has gone even further in their accusations, stating that “It is becoming clear the foundation was a center of influence peddling” and that rich people, both foreign and domestic, expected access to the government in exchange for their donations.
USA Today is confirming that there is proof that she granted “special access” to donors, but that there is – as of yet – no evidence proving that she exchanged special favors with these donors. So technically, there is no evidence of corruption.
The Clinton campaign has been quick to cry that this is yet another misunderstanding, blaming the AP’s analysis. But this clearly is no right-wing conspiracy; there is no way that this controversy was manufactured by the Republicans. This scandal is a direct result of Hillary’s actions and lack of ethics, not the fault of anyone else.
The question is, how many more scandals can Clinton endure before she is unfit for president? Her time as Secretary of State was supposed to be her key qualification as president, but it is proving to be her Achilles heel. First Benghazi, then the emails and now the donor scandal. How many more crimes can she commit?
I doubt Hillary will ever be convicted of any crimes, and there may never be any evidence of corruption actually occurring during her time at state. But when the Associated Press is questioning Hillary’s ethics, then one should be sure to take notice.
Hillary Clinton is a compromised candidate, and she will make for a compromised president. Her continued scandals, while decried by the left as always being someone else’s fault, clearly indicated that she is a person who is ethically challenged and prone to use her power in whatever way benefits her or her donors. And that is not who we need running this country.
