#1 – Benghazi
Under her watch as Secretary of State four Americans were killed, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, when terrorists invaded the American compound in Benghazi, Libya. When Hillary was asked about the Obama Administration’s first report that the attack was evoked by an anti-Islam YouTube video, Clinton carelessly exclaimed “What difference, at this point, does it make?” That is certainly up for debate, Hillary.
#2 – Private Email Services
2015 was the year of the private email server for Hillary Clinton, when, in March, news broke that she had used her family’s private email server when she should have been using an official State Department email account when she was Secretary of State and had even deleted thousands of emails from her private email server. Talk about public trust.
#3 – The Watergate Investigation
During the Watergate investigation, Clinton was fired from her job as a lawyer. Her supervisor at the time of the events put it this way, “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”
#4 – War Games
Hillary Clinton herself admitted that her negative stance on the troop influx in Iraq was politically motivated for the reason that she knew she would face Barack Obama in the 2009 Democratic primary.
#5 – Scandals Galore
In the 90’s there were many scandals that portrayed Hillary in a suspicious way, including but not limited to the opening of 900 confidential FBI files of political opponents. None of it was proven, but sometimes things happen.
#6 – Hillary’s Aide
A “top advisor” for Clinton at the State Department, Huma Abedin (who is also the wife Anthony Weiner), had been given a special arrangement that granted her to profit from a corporation formed by an aide for Bill Clinton, which allowed her to serve in a position with the Clinton Foundation at the time she was a federal employee. Funny enough, Huma forgot to disclose the deal on the State Department financial disclosure forms. Not so good.
#7 – The Fail of the First Lady
The health care plan that Hillary had come up with in 1993 failed so hard that it made the Democrats lose control of the House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years. Ouch.
#8 – The Only Bill is her Husband
When Hillary was a U.S Senator she accomplished, debatably, nothing. Hillary Clinton does not have a single piece of major legislation in her name.
These are just some examples of why Hillary would not make a good President. Hillary has made it very clear that she does not have the American’s interest at heart, even if she continues to pull emotion heartstrings and flip-flops on key issues, like gay marriage and the war on drugs. At this point, it seems that Hillary would say just about anything to convince you that she has your best interest at heart, but that is definitely debatable.
The FBI is widening its investigation of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account while she was U.S. secretary of state to determine whether any public corruption laws were violated, Fox News reported on Monday.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been looking into whether classified material was mishandled during Clinton’s tenure at the State Department from 2009-2013.
It will expand its probe by examining possible overlap of the Clinton Foundation charity with State Department business, Fox reported, citing three unidentified intelligence officials.
“The [FBI] agents are investigating the possible intersection of Clinton Foundation donations, the dispensation of State Department contracts and whether regular processes were followed,” Fox quoted one of its unidentified sources as saying.
The FBI and the State Department had no immediate comment on the report. The Clinton campaign didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus issued a statement calling the Fox News report “a very troubling development.”
The FBI last expanded its probe into the server in November to examine whether “materially false statements” were ever provided to agents throughout the course of the case.

Facing criticism last year for exclusively using a private server during her time as US secretary of state, Clinton handed over about 30,000 work-related emails for the State Department to make public. She deleted about 31,000 more emails she says were personal in nature.
The FBI launched its investigation into Clinton’s server in August in an effort to determine whether any classified information ever passed onto the server while she served as secretary of state.
After months of negative headlines that battered her campaign, the Democratic presidential front-runner apologized in September for her email arrangement. But she has insisted that she didn’t violate protocol — noting that she used communication practices that were widespread across the federal government — or pass along material marked classified.
More than 1,200 emails in Clinton’s server have been retroactively marked “classified” since the investigation began in August, according to Politico.
A Brief History of Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton. The name alone ushers in a whirlwind of controversy, which Hillary has found herself in time and time again. In case you live under a rock, Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton is best known for serving as the First Lady to the 42nd President, Bill Clinton. From 2001 to 2009, Hillary served as a United States Senator from New York. In early 2007 she announced that she was running for president but, in 2008, conceded to Barack Obama who was vying for the Democratic nomination. After that, she went on to become a U.S Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013, and now she’s running for president again.
This 2016 election has so far been a blood-thirsty battle with no stone unturned for any of the candidates, Democratic or Republican. When the name ‘Hillary Clinton’ is mentioned, you might think of one of two things, Benghazi or her private email server, although the two are not mutually exclusive. Not everyone believes what she says either. A national poll released earlier this month from Quinnipiac University (http://www.quinnipiac.edu/news-and-events/quinnipiac-university-poll/national/release-detail?ReleaseID=2307) estimates that 60 percent of voters in the United States do not view Clinton as honest or trustworthy while only 36 percent trust her.
So why is that? It all started on September 11th, 2012, when Islamic militants attacked the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, killing U.S Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and U.S Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith. A lot of people are skeptical about whether or not she had prior warnings of the attack, and if she could have done more to stop it.
The Private Email Servers
The news broke in March 2015 that Hillary had exclusively used her family’s private email server for her official email communications while she was Secretary of State, instead of using official State Department email accounts maintained on Federal government servers. She also deleted 32,000 emails that she considered private and not for public consumption.
Late last month, even more news broke that her private email server contained classified information, so says the intelligence community. The email is part of an almost 8,000-page document that was dumped earlier this month alongside an estimated 54,000 pages that have been released since March.
The Hypocrisy of Sex Abuse
On November 22nd of this year, Hillary’s official Twitter page sent out the following tweet: “Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported.” She went on to say that “Well, I would say that everybody should be believed at first until they are disbelieved based on evidence,” after being called out by a young woman during a campaign event in Nashua, NH earlier this month.
A lot of people are up in arms at the hypocrisy of this statement as Hillary’s own husband, former President Bill Clinton has been accused of sexual abuse by multiple women and there is also evidence that Hillary Clinton may have also slandered a sexual abuse victim and used immoral tactics to get the defendant in Clinton’s first defense case a lesser sentence as a 27-year-old lawyer (mind you the victim was only 12-years-old in Arkansas at the time of the alleged sexual abuse).
