When Hillary left the State Department in March 2013, the last person I would have expected to defend her was Jennifer Rubin who wrote critically of Hillary’s tenure there. So this op-ed over the weekend is something of a surprise even though Rubin has been steadily critical of the Trump regime. Jennifer has always identified as conservative and Republican. It would be nice to see the liberal media take her advice even if it would be a day late and a few dollars short.

 

Jennifer Rubin

Hillary Clinton has a unique distinction: She has been exonerated twice after extensive federal investigations, the latest entirely unjustified and the result of a politicized Justice Department. President Trump of course was NOT exonerated in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation, which found 10 or so categories of conduct that but for the present policy of Justice Department guidelines would serve as the basis for obstruction-of-justice charges. If Trump is defeated in November he can still be criminally charged the moment he leaves office.
But back to Clinton. It may be hard to remember given then-FBI Director James B. Comey’s voluminous investigative report in the midst of the 2016 election, his testimony before Congress and his intrusion into the campaign 11 days before Election Day, but he found no basis she committed a crime. His subjective comments about poor judgment and negligence were entirely irrelevant (and frankly inappropriate for the FBI, which is charged with finding or not finding criminal conduct). The bottom line: Clinton committed no crimes.That was not enough for Trump. Based on no new evidence but rather on an undisguised personal vendetta, Trump opened up another investigation.

Everyone is finally learning what I’ve known all along. The Washington Post has reported that Justice Department officials have determined that the conspiracy theories and lies that have been peddled for years about me, my family, and the Clinton Foundation are without merit. Their investigation found “nothing of consequence.” Now you know the truth.

When I ran for president, this highly effective global charity was unfairly dragged through the mud. I am so proud of the impact the Clinton Foundation continues to have – in spite of these unrelenting attacks over the past several years.

I’ve got thick skin, but these politically-motivated lies hurt the people the Foundation works to help across our country and around the globe. That’s simply unacceptable and unfair to them.

We face real issues and challenges that need our collective attention, and I’ve seen how the Clinton Foundation works to solve them. The Foundation’s programs are putting people first – every day.

Whether it is responding to the opioid crisis, helping the people of Puerto Rico and others across the Caribbean build back better, supporting early childhood brain development, fighting climate change, or inspiring the next generation of young people to turn their ideas into action, the Clinton Foundation is a shining example of what’s actually working in America. It embodies a spirit of cooperation, partnership, and our shared humanity.

Thank you for your continued support of the Foundation, and best wishes for a happy, healthy 2020.

Onward,
Hillary

Washington (CNN)Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday said “many, many, many people” were pressuring her to consider a 2020 presidential bid, but held that it is “absolutely not in my plans.”

“I, as I say, never, never, never say never and I will certainly tell you I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it,” Clinton told BBC Radio. “But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans.”
CNN previously reported that Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee, has been taking calls from other members of her party asking her to enter the 2020 race, but it remains unlikely she would do so.
Clinton said in March that she would not run for president again in 2020, but her reentry into the public sphere with taunts aimed at President Donald Trump in recent weeks has stoked speculation she could be considering a rematch with the President.

Perhaps Trump was confused and thought Yanukovich was still president of Ukraine. This is straight out of his playbook.

He just can’t get over Hillary Clinton.

Before giving U.S. military aid to Ukraine, President Trump wanted “nothing less” than for the European country to announce an investigation targeting Clinton in addition to one targeting Joe Biden and his son, according to a senior State Department official.

George Kent, a deputy assistant secretary of state for European affairs, made the bombshell revelation during his closed-door deposition on Oct. 15, testifying he was told that Trump used Clinton’s name as “shorthand” for the investigation he wanted President Volodymyr Zelensky to launch into a debunked right-wing conspiracy theory claiming anti-Trump Ukrainians interfered in the 2016 election.

Kent’s deposition, a transcript of which was released Thursday, marks the first time Clinton’s name has come up in the context of Trump’s desired Ukrainian investigation of the 2016 U.S. election. The mention suggests Trump wanted the probe to target the former Democratic presidential candidate one way or another.

Kent said Gordon Sondland, Trump’s handpicked ambassador to the European Union, had conveyed the Clinton message to him and other diplomats after speaking to the president on Sept. 7.

His daughter Adia quoted Eminem. Kweisi Mfume quoted Sartre and Frost. Staffer Harry Spikes quoted Bruce Lee and The Lion King. And, of course, many quoted Elijah Eugene Cummings, aka ‘Bobby.’  It was a celebratory sendoff for a true Lion of the House. The recessional was ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’ as you have never heard it before. We will not see his like.

Statement from President Clinton and Secretary Clinton on the Passing of Representative Elijah Cummings

Elijah Cummings was a resounding voice of moral courage who fought the good fights for the people of Baltimore, and faithfully honored his oath to protect and defend the Constitution with a passion, skill, determination, and dignity rarely matched in our history.  He worked for affordable, quality health care, educational and economic opportunities, and environmental justice for all Americans.  And he led the House Committee on Oversight and Reform in finding facts, exposing fictions, and demanding that our government be accountable.  Hillary and I are grateful to have served with him and for his friendship.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Maya and the Cummings family.

Onward Together!

Last month, I joined our friends at the Albert Shanker Institute and the American Federation of Teachers for a conference on the ways we can protect and defend American democracy. In my opening remarks, I spoke about the risks that voter suppression, fake news, and a lack of election security pose to our country’s very foundation.

The founders of four Onward Together partner and grantee organizations also joined the conference as panelists that day: Eric Holder of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, Andrew Gillum of Forward Florida, Leah Greenberg of Indivisible, and María Teresa Kumar of Voto Latino.

Watch what we had to say here.

Meanwhile, it’s a busy time for all of the groups we work with. Our friends at Run for Something Action Fund have just launched WhereCanIRun.org, an all-new site that helps potential candidates decide where, how, and when to run for office. Dream Big Nevada, one of our grantee organizations, is raising money to cover DACA renewal fees for eligible young people — and you can contribute today.

As always, I’m grateful to have you on this team.

Onward!

Hillary
