Bill Clinton accuses GOP, media of stoking email controversy

by Ben Kamisar | The Hill  |  published on September 27, 2015

President Bill Clinton dismissed the controversy surrounding his wife Hillary Clinton’s private email server as a meaningless distraction, comparing it to his administration’s “Whitewater” controversy.

“This is just something that has been a regular feature of all our presidential campaigns, except 2008, for unique reasons,” he said in an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria that will air Sunday.

“I’d rather it happen now than later. It was already going to happen—the other party doesn’t want to run against her and if they do they want her as mangled up as possible. They know if they leak things and say things that is catnip to the people who get bored talking about [issues].

    Dear former President Clinton, I find your comments ludicrous, and as dishonest as what has happened to your wife’s computer and e-mails. Why, based on not only the evidence, but her very disturbing responses, this Democrat is looking elsewhere for 2016!! How sad that our country has changed so dramatically in our Constitutional and Bill of Rights support for all the laws being passed. I am so sad at what has happened to our country, Benghazi, the new and forced medical Obama Care, and I can go on and on. I supported you for your first run for the important job as President of the USA, and diligently worked toward your being elected. NOW, between the Foundation you have, all of the other issues, and you righteously attempt to think of myself and other citizens as ill informed voters. I am being extremely careful, and do not want another elected official who will carry on these last eight years. The ride is over for all the manipulation, and self-serving politics!

    Funny that Slick Willy should choose “Whitewater” to compare to Hildebeast’s emails. It was a “non-issue” that netted 15 close friends and associates 40 criminal convictions. Susan McDougal chose being jailed for 22 months for contempt over refusing to answer THREE questions for a grand jury about whether Bill lied in his testimony during HER Whitewater trial and her husband, James McDougal “mysteriously” died of a heart attack while in solitary confinement when prison officials failed to get him the meds he needed. His death was SHORTLY before he was scheduled to testify against the Clintons.

    Billy I-didn’t-have-sex-with-that-woman-MUCH & Hildegard Thunderthighs, the #Benghazi traitor, collectively are the most corrupt, criminal, evil hacks I’ve seen in USA leadership positions in my lifetime! And that’s as politely as I can say that! Has all the evil, in both ruling parties, caused God to pull back His blessings for our beloved America?
