Vittigheden om politikere går jo, at man blot skal se efter om deres læber bevæger sig, for at vide om de lyver. I virkelighedes verden er vilkåret vel, at sandheden er noget man kan stræbe efter, men aldrig nå fuldt ud. Hillary Clinton er dog i en klasse for sig. Whasington Times bringer følgende:
Asked point-blank if she has always told the truth, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she’s “always tried to” and that she’ll do the best she can to level with the American people.
“Well, I have to tell you I have tried in every way I know how literally from my years as a young lawyer all the way through my time as secretary of state to level with the American people,” Mrs. Clinton, a 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, said in an interview with CBS News.
Carl Bernstein fortæller til Whasington Examiner:
“Politicians lie. Hillary Clinton has been around public life for almost 40 years now and what we see is whenever she is in any kind of trouble, she is unwilling to open up and be transparent,” Bernstein, who is known best for uncovering the Watergate scandal with fellow journalist Bob Woodward, said Wednesday morning on CNN.
“It has dogged her for years and years, and right now it’s the biggest problem with her campaign,” he added.
Well; om Hillary som “young lawyer” og “Watergate” berettes der på Savannahnow.com det om den sag:
An email says that Hillary Clinton — then Hillary Rodham — was fired for lying and being unethical when she was a 27-year-old working on the Watergate investigation. Is this true?
The viral email is mainly derived from a column published on March 31, 2008, by Dan Calabrese, founder of North Star Writers Group, according to fact-finder TruthOrFiction.com. North Star was a newspaper syndicate that provided services until early 2012.
Zeifman said that in 1974 a young lawyer who shared an office with Clinton came to him to apologize that he and Clinton had lied to him. The lawyer, John Labovitz, is quoted as saying that he was dismayed with “… her erroneous legal opinions and efforts to deny Nixon representation by counsel — as well as an unwillingness to investigate Nixon.”
Zeifman charges that Rodham regularly consulted with Ted Kennedy’s chief political strategist, a violation of House rules.
Hillary Rodham’s conduct, according to Zeifman, also was the result of not wanting Nixon to face an impeachment trial because Democrats worried that Nixon might bring up abuses of office by President John Kennedy.
Zeifman — ironically, a consultant to a member of the Judiciary Committee that impeached President Bill Clinton — said Democrats feared putting Watergate break-in mastermind E. Howard Hunt on the stand. Hunt, Zeifman said, might report on his knowledge of nefarious activities in the Kennedy administration “including Kennedy’s purported complicity in the attempted assassination of Fidel Castro.”
In order to pull this off, Zeifman said that Rodham wrote a fraudulent legal brief, and confiscated public documents.
After the Nixon impeachment investigation was finished, Zeifman fired Rodham and said he refused to give her a letter of recommendation.
According to the Calabrese column as reported by TruthOrFiction.com, Zeifman said he regrets not reporting Rodham to the appropriate bar association.
So what are we to make of all this? Calabrese’s interview with Zeifman has been published around the Internet and repeated by pundits such as Rush Limbaugh and Neil Boortz. But there is nothing to out-and-out confirm Zeifman’s rendition. That doesn’t mean it couldn’t be true, but it makes it difficult to arrive at the truth.
In addition, neither www.TruthOrFiction.com nor we could find any response from Hillary Clinton to Zeifman’s book or to his accusations.

I øvrigt er forudsigelsen ved stambordet her på hotellet, at står valget mellem Hillary og The Donald så hedder USAs næste præsident Trump. Begrundelsen er følgende:
Hillary burde, hvis hun ellers havde reel opbakning i sit eget parti, Demokraterne, have ryddet bordet med en modkandidat som Bernie Sanders. Det gør hun ikke, hun vinder klart, men ikke overbevisende klart.
Samtidig er der det mønster i de to partier, hvor det valgkampen handler om i øjeblikket er, hvem de to partiers registrerede vælgere vælger til kandidat. Deltagelsen hos Demokraterne falder markant og hos Republikanerne stiger den markant. Det fortæller os, at Hillarys kandidatur bliver mødt med ligegyldighed i egne rækker, hvilket igen vil føre til, at mange færre end normalt vil tale for hende ude på arbejdspladser, klubber osv. Modsat for The Donald.
