Financial skeletons could rattle a Hillary presidential run

Posted by on Jun 12, 2014 at 7:01 am

Back on Aug. 20, 1999, I wrote a column with the headline “Ken Starr Has A Few Questions for Hillary Clinton.” That column read, “I have an internal document from the Starr investigation labeled ‘Whitewater — Potential Questions.’ It’s a list of matters that Starr wanted Hillary Clinton to clarify under oath.”

First question was: “You and the President received a 50 percent interest in the Whitewater development but you didn’t invest nearly as much as the McDougals did, did you? Why did Jim McDougal give you this special deal? Do you think he expected anything in return?”

My question today is: Does Hillary really want to make herself out to be regular folk with financial problems when there is so much evidence that she isn’t?

I think the defeat of Rep. Eric Cantor, the House majority leader, in a primary election this week to a nobody proves one thing. Voters are tired of the usual games that go on in Washington, no matter the party.

And Hillary Clinton has been a political player — both in Arkansas and around the world — longer than most.

Full story.

    There is plenty of ammo from her disastrous tenure at State, but she has successfully dodged those earlier scandals. Granted, if she were a Republican, it would be considered fair game to talk about her private school hijinks as a teen, but the media will stress the expiration of the statute of limitations and try to blame Starr, etc., on her older skeletons.

    Turns out the Clinton (now Obama) playbook, of deny, delay, lie, delay, deny, lie, delay, refuse to comply, repeat seems to work pretty well to keep scandals at bay if you have a compliant propaganda wing for the 4th Estate.
