Clinton’s emails and Republican Hypocrisy.


With the ongoing controversy about Clinton and her emails, why isn’t the following common knowledge?

Clinton’s email habits look positively transparent when compared with the subpoena-dodging, email-hiding, private-server-using George W. Bush administration. Between 2003 and 2009, the Bush White House “lost” 22 million emails. This correspondence included millions of emails written during the darkest period in America’s recent history, when the Bush administration was ginning up support for what turned out to be a disastrous war in Iraq with false claims that the country possessed weapons of mass destruction (WMD), and, later, when it was firing U.S. attorneys for political reasons.

    There’s also all kinds of stuff that apparently is going to be accepted about Trump that would not have been in regard to Hillary Clinton, in terms of conflict of interest (on his own part) and people in the administration (not to mention the campaign before it) representing foreign governments, officially being paid by them, etc. There’s going to be so much of it, there will be no way to keep up. Republicans have their king.

    Laurence Tribe, a professor of constitutional law at Harvard who taught Barack Obama, said on Twitter that Trump was risking legal action from business competitors if he did not move to stop the presidency benefitting him financially.

    Tribe described Trump as “uniquely suable” thanks to his current corporate setup.

    Trump’s attorneys have said that three of his children, Ivanka, Donald Jr and Eric, would be placed in charge of his sprawling business empire. The lawyers called this arrangement a “blind trust”, but ethics watchdogs and attorneys have noted that it is not blind, because Trump’s children remain in close contact with their father. Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, a close adviser to Trump and a former prosecutor, has admitted that the arrangement is not actually a blind trust.

    The full extent of Trump’s corporate interests and earnings are unknown because of his refusal to release his personal tax returns, in a breach of decades in election tradition.

    And then, on top of the phony idea that the kids being in charge of “the business” (sprawling, worldwide this and that and foreign loans) will make it all on the up-and-up, he’s wanted his kids in on government!

    I heard the interview at this sites on the way to work this morning:

    No US president has ever held a fortune that spans the globe until Donald Trump.

    The president-elect has licensed his name to buildings, casinos and golf courses across the Middle East, Asia and South America including countries where the US maintains sensitive diplomatic ties.

    Not only do Trump’s business interests create an ethical dilemma when he’s President, there are also serious security issues around the hotels and buildings he owns across the world that are branded with his name. They are likely to be seen as prime targets.
