She’s back to her old tricks. Hillary Clinton has sent out her attack dogs to trash Peter Schweizer’s upcoming book Clinton Cash, which, according to those who have seen it, will chronicle in painstaking detail Bill and Hillary’s foreign money grab and connect the dots to her policy decisions at the State Department that benefitted donors to their Foundation and their bank accounts. Some who have read it have speculated that Hillary may even have to drop out of the race after the material in the book is made public.
We’re talking serious. And Hillary knows what’s coming when the book is released on May 5th. It will not be pretty.
So enter the Hillary hit men – and women – to attack not just the book, but the author.
That’s vintage Hilary.
But the new happy-talk granny candidate doesn’t want to get her own hands dirty. So while the attack dogs do her dirty work, she laments about the state of politics. “I am tired of mean spiritedness.” she said in New Hampshire.
The woman who invented the ‘scorched earth’ policy in politics, the woman who hired private detectives – her own secret police – to hunt down and spread dirt about the many women who had sexual relations with Bill Clinton before (and after) he became President is tired of the mean spiritedness in politics today.
She wants it to stop.
That’s the same woman who worked tirelessly to destroy a twenty-three year old intern who had sex with her husband in the Oval Office. It was Hillary Clinton who started the completely false rumor that Monica Lewinsky was a disturbed stalker who was harassing the President. According to Hillary, it was the young woman – only 7 years older that her own daughter – who was the problem. Not her husband, the leader of the Free World. Not the man whose list of assignations were investigated by Hillary’s close friends Diane Blair and Betsy Wright during the 1992 campaign. There were so many of them that, after the 1992 election, Betsy told me that the documents about the women would “fill a warehouse.”
And Hillary knew all about it. But, in Hillary’s view, the ends always justify the means. That meant that everything and anything was on the table as part of her strategy to keep power. Never mind that Hillary knew she was spreading a lie. Never mind that she and her army tried to annihilate a powerless young woman just because she dared to get involved with Bill, a serial adulter. After all, It was all for an important cause. Clinton power.
Now that’s mean spiritedness.
Ever wonder about what a coincidence it was that news of the extra marital affairs of both the House Majority Leader and Congressman Henry Hyde head of the Impeachment Committee just happened to be made public at that time? Especially when Hyde’s affair had ended thirty years earlier. That leak was the work of Hillary’s secret police.
Now the usual suspects have lined up to go after Schweizer.The Clinton campaign has sent out talking points on how to attack the book.
First up was David Brock, the wacky conservative turned Hillary sycophant called the book “a political put-up job” that he claimed he could “smell it from a mile away.”
Brock admitted that he had not read the book, but, nevertheless,attacked the author and suggested that there should be a focus on his credibility. That’s Clintonspeak for call out the dogs. And Brock is their top pit bull. On MSNBC, Brock insisted that we should look at what Hillary Clinton did as Secretary of State, instead of looking at the claims in the book. Mica Brezenski came right back at him, insisting that it was impossible to do that because Hillary had “scrubbed clean” her records. Brock’s Media Matters website has already started the attack on Schweizer.
John Podesta, Hillary’s campaign chairman, told Al Hunt the book said nothing new and was just another conspiracy theory woven together.
We’ll see about that. We haven’t read the book, but we have investigated seen some of the same data that Schweizer did. Looks to us like he has a story to tell.
Watch for more and more Hillary footmen to be touting the party line on the book.
Peter, watch your back. Oh, and please stop the mean-spiritedness. It’s not nice.
