I have wondered lately whether there will be widespread buyer’s remorse among the plurality of American women voters who plan to cast their lot with Hillary Clinton come Nov. 8. Yes, if elected, Clinton will become the first woman President of the United States. But she will be bringing with her plenty of baggage — and not just the contents of her mongrammed Kate Spade luggage. She will carry with her to the Oval Office the stain of unanswered questions still swirling around her private emails and the failure of the Justice Department to bring an indictment.
The certainty that she will win has dimmed a little with the release Monday of transcripts of her interviews with the FBI, which confrim not only that Clinton lies and cheats but steals.
In a seeming reprise of her 2001 actions, when she and her president hubby walked off with several hundred dollars in furnishings from the White House, Hillary appears to have done the same thing when she stepped down as secretary of state in 2015. “Hillary Clinton and her staff may have lifted furniture from the State Department and moved it to her Washington, D.C., residence,” writes Jim Stinson at Lifezette, adding:
The disclosure came from a former State Department security agent on Sept. 2, 2015, while the FBI was interviewing people about Clinton’s private email server.
[T]he … agent said Clinton and her staff were observed removing furniture and lamps early in 2009, when she took office as secretary of state at the Foggy Bottom offices.
