Déjà vu: No crime is beneath Hillary
By Larry Klayman
March 9, 2015

For two decades, I have called her the Bonnie of American politics. Teaming up with her significant other, Slick "Clyde" Willy himself, Hillary Rodham Clinton believes that no crime is beneath her, just as Bill sees no sexual act with underage prostitutes beneath him (pun intended). As first lady, she even tried to steal White House furniture on her way out the door in 2001, at the end of her husband's administration.

Fourteen or so years later, after sleazy stints as a U.S. senator from New York and secretary of state under another criminal, President Barack Hussein Obama, Bonnie presses on; this time she has her sights on the presidency itself. Now, White House furniture aside, Hillary has irrepressibly continued with her criminal enterprises, lately having been caught soliciting and taking large contributions for the Clintons' sham charity from countries and interests that impacted her time as secretary of state. It is clear that, much like occurred during her years as first lady, when she greased illegal campaign contributions from communist China – a scandal I sparked when I was chairman and general counsel of Judicial Watch – these contributions were intended to influence and pervert U.S. foreign policy. Knowing from the get-go that she would use her office to enrich herself and hubby Bill, not to mention her daughter Chelsea, who is also a player in the Clintons' foundation, Hillary covered up evidence of her felonious ways by never using discoverable government email accounts at the State Department, but instead installing a private server in her illegally purchased home in Chappaqua, New York (see – Bill Clinton press conference attacking me for challenging their improper below market interest mortgages with Deutsche Bank and then PNC, which were gratuitous favors; that is, bribes obviously meant to influence pending bank regulations), and instead using private email accounts.

Her penchant for being bribed is not the only caper that Hillary has covered up. From Benghazi, to her having likely disclosed classified Israeli war plans to bomb Iranian nuclear sites, to her likely illegal sale of waivers to do business with the Islamic Iranian regime, and no doubt a host of other felonies while secretary of state, Hillary has simply used an old tried-and-true technique to obstruct justice. And obstruct justice she has, since she has deep-sixed thousands of Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, requests. The Department of State lied and failed to produce records not just for Freedom Watch, my current public interest group, but for many others including my former group Judicial Watch, as well as a hordes of media organizations that serve as government watchdogs.

But this time, Hillary's nine lives of skating from her crimes may be coming to an end. During her years as first lady, then independent counsel Robert Ray, the successor to Ken Starr, declined to prosecute her for lying under oath to a grand jury reasoning that a predominantly black and Democrat jury would never have convicted her. But this time, with her sights on the presidency, the stakes are much higher. It would be punishment enough to deny her the White House, a prize that this criminally minded megalomaniac has coveted since she first married Bill. Having Hillary as our president, to follow the current Muslim in chief, would likely be the death knell of the republic conceived of and fought for by our Founding Fathers.

If you think that the Hussein Obama/Eric Holder/Al Sharpton race war against persons of a different complexion is bad enough, wait for Hillary to also pit women against men to further the divide of our decaying body politic and society, already fractured to the hilt. Already she is signaling that the hallmark of her presidential candidacy will hinge on the nation having a duty to elect the first woman president. The irony is, however, that Hillary is arguably not a woman at heart, but rather an asexual "devil in a blue dress," and I'm not talking about the mascot of my alma mater, Duke University.

This week, to force full disclosure of our FOIA requests seeking information about these Hillary State Department scandals, I filed motions for orders to show cause why she and her cronies, such as her chief of staff, Marsha Scott, not be held in criminal contempt for obstructing justice. In so doing, I asked the courts, which have been defrauded by Hillary's conduct, to allow for discovery, that is put Bonnie and Marsha Scott under oath, and then hold a full-fledged trial.

Federal judge Royce C. Lamberth used a similar procedure during the Clinton administration, when two White House whistleblowers came to see me and revealed that Hillary and company had secreted millions of relevant emails to Judicial Watch's cases, the grand jury investigations of independent counsels Ken Starr and Robert Ray, and congressional investigations. Thus, Hillary and the Clintonistas' present scam is simply a rerun of their prior criminal acts. It is part of their criminal enterprise, also actionable under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, to enrich themselves through bribes and other financial benefits and to make sure these misdeeds remain covered up. Indeed, I intend to bring suit on this basis as well.

Yes, Hillary and her crowd know no limits in committing crimes and then suppressing the evidence of them. To date, she has walked away from punishment, only to resurface as a senator and then Cabinet secretary. While higher ups like her are rarely prosecuted, given her long history of criminality, the time (ala what finally happened to O.J. when he was jailed in Las Vegas for a minor crime) may be right to finally hold Hillary accountable under the rule of law. And, while I have never and would never use legal actions to try to influence elections, the unintended byproduct may be that the nation is spared the "privilege" of having the first "woman president" of her felonious ilk if she is forced to spend her time in prison rather than on the campaign trail.

There are women clearly qualified to become commander in chief. Indeed, many of the great leaders of the 20th century were women – Margaret Thatcher of Great Britain, Golda Meir of Israel and Angela Merkel of Germany, to name just a few. But Hillary is not in their league. Like her husband, Bill, before her, she is simply a cheap, slimy crook unsuitable for the office of the presidency.

Down with Hillary, and God bless the United States!
