Hillary Clinton has lived her entire adult life as a part of election campaigns and in the public eye. The Ivy League grad and former First Lady is running for the highest office in the land --- now, it’s her turn. A new generation of voters will be heading to the polls since her last stint in the White House, and they deserve to know who they are voting for.
In this series, Glenn examines the details behind the candidate and tries to put her ideology into perspective. Who and what has influenced her thinking, the tactics she uses to get what she wants and the people she leaves in her wake are all put out into the light of day.
Part IV: Political Career
So far, we have focused on the scandals and shady behavior from Bill and Hillary as Bill rose to power. This episode details just how deep the corruption runs and the lengths to which Hillary will go to hide the truth during the rise of her political career. Bullying women into keeping silent in the wake of her husband’s actions is one thing, but when lives are lost it’s a whole new ballgame.
In efforts to hide her involvement in arming rebels in Libya, Hillary and the State Department withheld aid when Ambassador Chris Stevens came under attack in Benghazi. Not sending in backup and denying requests for added security resulted in the loss of the lives of four Americans that night. And if those actions weren’t despicable enough, she and the administration concocted a ridiculous story about a YouTube video as the cause and lied to the families of those who died about what happened.
The Benghazi hearings brought to light an email scandal when Hillary thought it would be a good idea to set up a private email server for sending and receiving classified information. The investigation into how she handled this sensitive information has now led to hearings into just how the Clinton Foundation has handled their business, possibly taking multimillion dollar donations from foreign governments for favorable treatment from the State Department.
Listen as Glenn details the lies and deceit from Hillary once her political career began and into her run for the White House.
