The criminal investigations focusing on Hillary Clinton are moving full-speed ahead, according to a media report. On Thursday, Fox News reports that even though the media is currently fixated on Donald Trump, his comments regarding Muslims and other stories of the day, behind the nearly-unreported scenes are more intense criminal investigations into Clinton’s never-ending email scandal. And it won’t end as long as she’s a presidential contender – or president.
Let’s be honest: if former President Richard Milhous Nixon were still alive at the age of 102, he would be telling former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, 68, to not run for president of the United States. No one would know better than Nixon as to what results from running for president, winning the presidency, and then having to face the consequences of criminal activity while being the president of the United States. Oddly, Hillary Clinton is more than old enough to have witnessed what President Nixon went through as he ran for office a second time, won the office again, and then what he was subjected to after having scarcely settled into his second term.
Clinton was 25-years-old when Watergate was broken into on May 28, 1972. She was 26 when Nixon’s people started saving their own skin by speaking out about the criminal activity and Nixon’s involvement some 14 months later – just a half-year into his second term. If history repeats itself, history books will assert that alleged criminal involvement happened several years before supposed-President Hillary Clinton became president and supposed-people started saving their own skin by speaking out during the first six months of Hillary Clinton’s presidency.
Prior to Nixon’s second victory as president, there were underground rumblings of there being accusations of criminal activity against him. It’s the one reason that I didn’t vote for him. I figured, if he is a criminal, he shouldn’t be elected again. After all, he won’t stay in office if he’s a criminal because the truth will come out and he’ll be put out of office, one way or another. After all, his opponent – George McGovern – apparently had a clean record. He had no underground rumblings of there being criminal activities against him. Back in late 1972 before the election, there was a sense that there was a story there about Nixon and his wrongdoing – but there was just as strong a sense that the story was being suppressed. And it was being suppressed.
The truth began to unravel even before he won the election for his second time. Incredibly, as Nixon won the 1972 election, the investigations into his Watergate connection continued. If Nixon were here, he would tell Hillary Clinton that even though things appear intense now with the accusations being made against her prior to the election, basically, she ain’t seen nothing yet. He would tell her that there is a team of reporters – like the Washington Post’s former Woodward and Bernstein who ultimately revealed Nixon’s criminal story – waiting in the shadows somewhere. Being scrutinized as a former secretary of state, former senator and former first lady is one thing. Being scrutinized as a sitting-president is quite different. Should Hillary Clinton win the presidency, she will see what Nixon saw – but yet she must be ignoring – when Nixon held on to the White House a second time in spite of his criminal activity in the past.
Had Nixon lost his second term, like other alleged criminals in politics, he would have most likely been a former president with his criminal activity more than likely forgotten. But no, he won and was then attacked in every way possible to reveal the truth about his crimes in relation to the Watergate cover-up, and has little more to his legacy than disgrace.
At this point, Hillary Clinton could possibly fade into the pages of history books as a former first lady, former secretary of state, former senator, and former two-time failed Democratic presidential candidate. But no, she is determined to put herself through Nixon’s hellacious past. And selfishly worse, she is determined to put Americans through another hellacious presidency where her focus will need to be on defending her indefensible self rather than running the country which needs a leader more than ever at this time. Shame on her. Shame on her supporters. Incredibly, according to The Hill, Clinton is crushing Bernie Sanders as the most recent poll – the Monmouth University survey – shows Clinton leading her closest opponent by 33 points. Come on, America. We’ve worked and fought too long and too hard, and we don’t deserve to end up with yet another presidency like Nixon’s Watergate presidency. The United States deserves much better – much, much better.
