During his 1992 campaign for the presidency, Bill Clinton was
fond of promising America, “You get two for the price of one,”
indicating Hillary Clinton would act as his co-president.
But the nation got much more than it bargained for, as the top
power couple brought a load of baggage with them into the White
House from their days in Arkansas.
After the Clintons moved into the presidential mansion, the
political scandals multiplied – from use of the IRS and FBI to
target political opponents to stalking and harassing subjects of
Bill Clinton’s sexual advances and even attempts to loot
taxpayer-funded items from the White House. Americans also
witnessed capers such as Travelgate, Chinagate, Filegate and
Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades and subsequent impeachment by
the U.S. House of Representatives on charges of perjury and
obstruction of justice consumed more than a year of American
public life and bitterly divided the nation.
In the years since the memorable Clinton presidency, Hillary has
brought America Emailgate and the Benghazi scandal, among
others. New developments in the Clinton Foundation scandals
emerges almost daily.
Now, it’s Hillary’s “turn” to be president, according to her
But in 2015, America is still apparently suffering from “Clinton
fatigue.” Results from a Quinnipiac poll published in April
revealed between 49 and 56 percent of voters in three
significant swing states – Colorado, Virginia and Iowa – believe
Hillary is neither honest nor trustworthy.
Even former California Democratic Party Chairman Bill Press told
WND that controversies surrounding Hillary should convince
members of his own party an uncontested coronation of Clinton as
the party’s 2016 nominee for the White House is a very risky
idea and should encourage other Democrats to throw their hats in
Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican candidate for president, said
Sunday he believes voters will reject Hillary because of the
“cloud of constant scandal she brings to the political process.”
Rubio told Fox News Sunday, “Unfortunately, both under her
husband’s presidency, her time in the Department of State, her
campaign for the president last time and even now, there seems
to be this cloud of constant scandal and things that distract us
from the core issues of the moment.”
Hillary’s “drama” could become a distraction, Rubio warned, at a
time when the stakes are high for America in the 2016 election.
“I just think that at this hinge moment in our history, where we
are asked to make a transition from the past into this new
future, with all the challenges and the opportunities of our
time that we really – the American people are not at a point now
where they are going to be supportive of more drama surrounding
the political process,” he said.
In 2003, ABC News’ Barbara Walters referenced numerous Clinton
scandals from Whitewater to Travelgate and the death of Hillary
law partner Vince Foster in an interview with then-Sen. Clinton.
Walters asked Hillary, “How did you get in this mess where your
whole credibility is being questioned?”
Hillary’s response: “Oh, I ask myself that every day, Barbara,
because it’s very surprising and confusing to me.”

With the prospect of another “two-for-one” Clinton presidency

“drama” in the White House?
If, as psychologists say, “The best predictor of future behavior
is past behavior,” then a fresh look at the top 20 scandals
involving Hillary is in order.
3) Looting the White House
WHITE HOUSE-300When the Clintons left 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
in 2001, they reportedly vandalized and looted the White House.
Hillary tried to ship furniture to the Clintons’ personal home
in Chappaqua, New York. The Clintons came under fire when they
reportedly tried to take $190,000 in gifts and furnishings from
the presidential mansion. Additionally, the General Accounting
Office, an investigative arm of Congress, reported that ”damage,
theft, vandalism and pranks did occur in the White House
complex” during the presidential transition from Bill Clinton to
George W. Bush – including the theft of a presidential seal.
According to the General Accounting Office, the cost of the
White House vandalism reached about $14,000 and included $4,850
to replace computer keyboards with damaged or missing “W” keys.
The agency said some of the destruction was intentional,
including glue smeared on desks, broken furniture, offices full
of trash and graffiti in a men’s restroom stall that disparaged
Bush. There were also missing doorknobs, medallions and office
During their time in the White House, the Clintons also
reportedly auctioned off and sold taxpayer-financed government
goods and services in exchange for political campaign
contributions and personal profit. Among the items sold by the
Clintons, which Judicial Watch uncovered in various lawsuits,
and the media and Congress in their investigations, were: 1)
seats on overseas trade missions; 2) export licenses for high
technology sales to communist China and elsewhere; 3)
commissionerships and judgeships; 4) rides on Air Force One; 5)
overnight stays in the White House’s Lincoln Bedroom; 6) graves
at Arlington Cemetery; 7) meetings with key Clinton-Gore
administration leaders; and other favors.
