Hillary Clinton's colorful Capt. Kangaroo coats accessorized by shiny 24-inch shoes, a red nose and a clown-horn would befit a Cirque du Soleil performer. Clowns are often perceived as scary and Clinton is spookier than Twisty the Clown of American Horror Story. She is at once dark and clownish. From her political rants against Republicans et al., to as many as 46 people surrounding the Clintons who died during decades of political skirmishes, Hillary's achievements are a progression of lies, cover-ups and political corruption.

The Saul Alinsky scandal

To quell talk of her relationship with militant Communist activist Saul Alinsky during the 1970s, the Clinton White House requested Wellesley University not release her senior thesis about Alinski, which led to a policy blocking access to the thesis of any sitting US president or first lady.

'Bimbo eruptions' 

In 1992, former lounge singer Gennifer Flowers revealed she had had a long affair with Arkansas governor and presidential candidate Bill Clinton and that he arranged a state job for her.

The Clintons systematically destroyed Flowers and other victims of Bill's sexual peccadilloes. Hillary blamed a "vast right-wing conspiracy" during a nationally broadcast segment of 60 Minutes, insisting she was not "some little woman standing by her man like Tammy Wynette." The FBI eventually found Bill Clinton's semen stains on Monica Lewinsky's dress.

More Scandals

The Travelgate scandal broke in May 1993 after the Clintons fired seven career employees in the WH Travel Office to hire their friends and associates. Then came the cattle futures stock market scandal first reported in 1994 by The New York Times.

That scandal involved a $100,000 profit Hillary made on a $1,000 investment in speculative cattle futures in 1978. The miraculous stock market gain contrasts with the Clinton narrative of leaving the White House "dead broke" in 2000. Clinton claimed she made the trades herself after reading the Wall Street Journal, but an investigation revealed Clinton associate James Blair executed 30 of 32 trades directly with an Arkansas stockbroker.

Clinton denied in a 1994 press conference that she "received any favorable treatment" from Blair, but experts say it's nearly impossible to make a $99,000 profit on a $1,000 investment in less than a year.

Another past Clinton scandal erupted when she denied involvement in the removal of documents from the office of White House lawyer Vince Foster immediately after his "suicide." 

"I don't know if she did remove any documents," Hillary told reporters, speaking of Maggie Williams, her personal aide.

Three months later Clinton admitted she had instructed Williams to bring the Foster documents to the White House residence.

Castle Grande

In 1995, Resolution Trust Corp. reported that Hillary had done work in the mid-1980s on a Arkansas's real estate development known as Castle Grande, promoted by James McDougal and Seth Ward. McDougal owned a troubled thrift bank - that collapsed - called Madison Guaranty Savings and Loan.

A family friend, McDougal gave Hillary legal business, purportedly as a favor to Bill. McDougal was also the Clintons' partner in their Whitewater real estate investment, a separate but related fraud the Clintons survived. During an investigation of the bank's collapse, Hillary told federal investigators that she knew nothing about Castle Grande. An investigation revealed she invoiced for many hours of work on the project. A 1996 Federal Deposit Insurance report said that she had drafted documents that Castle Grande used to "deceive federal bank examiners."

Sometimes Clinton lies for no apparent reason - like her exiting a helicopter under machine-gun fire in Bosnia. Other times she schemes political, like blaming an obscure anti-Muslim video for a terrorist attack on the US embassy in Libya. If the Clintons are able to lie and deny their way back to the White House, damage to institutions like the FBI and Justice Department will be undeniable.
