Hillary Clinton

Is it something he said?

Featured image The Daily Caller’s Richard Pollock has an exclusive report on an FBI raid. When I say FBI raid, I mean FBI raid. It involved some 16 agents making a house call on whistleblower Dennis Nathan Cain. The problem here seems to be that Cain is blowing the whistle on federal law enforcement (or the nonfeasance thereof) in matters pertaining to the Clinton crime family. As if that weren’t enough, Robert »

The G(r)ift That Keeps on Giving

Featured image I’ve been saying for months that Hillary Clinton, now well along in her Gollum-phase-shift craving after The Precious (Oval Office), is itching to run again for President in 2020, and all she needs is the slightest opening to make it happen. Oh please, please, may it be so. . . Here she starts off saying she doesn’t want to run again. . . and then takes it all back in »

Hillary is right about Monica

Featured image Over the weekend, a CBS reporter asked Hillary Clinton whether her husband should have resigned due to his affair with Monica Lewinsky. “Absolutely not,” Hillary replied. Hillary has been criticized and ridiculed for her response. And some feminists are wringing their hands over what one of them has called “the enduring Bill Clinton dilemma.” But Hillary is right. Bill Clinton should not have resigned over his affair with Lewinsky. Lewinsky »

Ms. Hillary arrives

Featured image The folks at the National Republican Senatorial Committee are having too much fun with the video of Hillary Clinton’s latest encounter with forces beyond her control as she arrives at a fundraiser for New Jersey sleazemeister Senator Bob Menendez. The metaphor is irresistible. NRSC Digital Director Jon Adams looses a zinger along with the video below. The soundtrack borrows from the theme of the Larry David/HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm. »

The Left to the Clintons: Please Go Away!

Featured image Yet another missive from Robert Kuttner of the lefty American Prospect that will warm the cockles, and many other things beside: Depart, I Say, and Let Us Have Done with You. That’s what Oliver Cromwell said to the Long Parliament in 1653. In May 1940, the British Conservative M.P. Leo Amery flung the same words at Neville Chamberlain, demanding that Hitler’s appeaser step down as British prime minister. The words »

Clintons: The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Featured image I thought this story was a satire, or something from the superb Babylon Bee, but it’s true! And it’s too good to be true. National Review reports: Clintons Launch Speaking Tour to Provide ‘Insight into Where We Go from Here’ By Jack Crowe Bill and Hillary Clinton announced Monday a 13-stop live-event tour that is being billed as a chance for ticket holders to glean insights from the former first »

Remembering “Whitewater”

Featured image For the past 20 years, Kenneth Starr has avoided the limelight. And why not? As the independent counsel who investigate Whitewater and other Clinton-related scandals, he received enough attention to last several lifetimes. Now, however, Starr has written a book about those days. It’s called Contempt: A Memoir of the Clinton Investigation. The contempt in question was that of Bill and Hillary Clinton. The two manifested it differently, though. According »

Both sides not now (2)

Featured image Washington attorney Cleta Mitchell is a partner in the Washington, D.C., office of Foley & Lardner and a bona fide legal expert on the thorny federal law of campaign finance. She brings her expertise to bear on the question we examined yesterday in “Both sides not now.” She asks what is by now a rhetorical question concerning the Mueller Switch Project: “Fair-minded investigation or partisan witch hunt?” Cleta bores in »

The silly season is upon us again

Featured image After Edward Bennett Williams fired Baltimore Orioles manager Joe Altobelli, word got out that he had referred to his ex-manager, behind his back, as a “meathead.” Williams denied having used the word but added, “it is not inconsistent with my thinking.” Fifteen years ago, David Brock alleged that Brett Kavanaugh, now under consideration for the Supreme Court, saw Hillary Clinton on television during a party in 1997, and mouthed the »

Yeah, but the Cigar Will Bring Back Bad Memories

Featured image The Dowager Empress of Chappaqua, AKA Hillary Rodham Clinton, AKA the person who did her best to transform Washington DC into Rodham and Gomorrah, is over in Britain at the moment, and yesterday compared herself to . . . Churchill. And the way in which she did it makes me think she is still holding out the possibility of running again in 2020. Some of the report from The Guardian »

What If . . .

Featured image Counterfactual history—i.e., what if John F. Kennedy had not been assassinated?, etc—is a popular though fatuous genre. “What is, is singular,” Churchill wrote; “What might have been is infinite.” Quite true, but over the weekend in my item “Five Ways to Think About the IG Report” I offered a contingent counterfactual that Joe Biden might—I emphasize might—have beaten Trump if Biden had been the nominee instead of Hillary. This speculation »

Five Ways to Look at the IG Report

Featured image Concerning the Inspector General’s report about the FBI’s conduct of the Hillary email investigation, let’s take a step back from the details and offer a few observations on the wider scene. 1. We may have abolished monarchy in America way back in 1776, but it seems we haven’t quite rid ourselves of royal prerogative. Then-FBI director James Comey took it upon himself to decide not to apply consistent procedure in conducting »

Hillary Responds to IG Report

Featured image I’ve been on the move all day and haven’t had a chance to dip into the IG report on the FBI’s behavior during the 2016 election campaign that was released today, but I did catch up with Hillary Clinton’s response. It is three words long. Here it is: It’s still a total mystery why she lost the election. »

What’s Wrong With Hillary?

Featured image I will venture a prediction: by the end of President Trump’s first term, it will be obvious that Hillary Clinton’s health would not have permitted her to serve effectively as president, had she won the 2016 election. Hillary falls down and faints. She needs help going up and down stairs. There are persistent rumors that she drinks too much. During the campaign, there were many days when Hillary was AWOL. »

Hillary’s whiny Yale commencement speech

Featured image I’ve heard my share of commencement speeches both live and via C-SPAN. Typically, speakers offer words of encouragement and advice to graduates. Rags to riches stories aren’t commonly told these days, but commencement speakers often recount tales of achievement against the odds, sometimes by the speaker, sometimes not. I once heard a commencement speech devoted to heaping praise on the college president (Jim Kim of Dartmouth). That was an outlier, »

The Trump Tower meeting cut down to size

Featured image Remember all the excitement after it was revealed that Donald Trump Jr. and a few others in the Trump campaign met with that Russian lawyer at Trump Tower? The mainstream media treated this news as if it were a tipping point in the search for collusion between Team Trump and the Russian government. The notion was always absurd. News flash: A presidential campaign, when offered dirt on the opponent, will »

Comey’s delusion

Featured image James Comey is beginning to remind me of David Brock. In the mid 1990s, Brock wrote a book that criticized Hillary Clinton, though not to the degree many on the right hoped for. He then spent the next two decades sucking up to Hillary. Comey publicly criticized Clinton’s handling of classified emails, though he did not lower the boom that many on the right hoped for. Now Comey seems obsessed »
