On Wednesday, pathological liar Hillary Clinton did an interview with 9News in which she rattled off fabrication after fabrication. Fortunately for Clinton, the entire media have been focused, laserlike, on Donald Trump making a complete and utter fool of himself, and so they ignored Hillary’s lies.
The interview ran nine and a half minutes.
In the first six minutes, Hillary clocked four lies:
1. The Iran Ransom Wasn’t A Ransom. Hillary tried to brush off news that the Obama administration shipped $400 million in unmarked currency to the Iranians in exchange for the release of four Americans as “old news.” She said, “The White House has addressed this, and I think actually this is kind of old news…So far as I know, it had nothing to do with any kind of hostage swap.” That’s spurious. As The Wall Street Journal reported, “U.S. officials also acknowledge that Iranian negotiators on the prisoner exchange said they wanted the cash to show they had gained something tangible.”
2. The Iran Deal Stopped Their Nuclear Program. Hillary continued by shilling for the worst international deal in modern history: “I think we know that the agreement has put a lid on Iran’s nuclear weapons program. I consider that to be a very positive step….The most important thing is that we have, in my view, prevented Iran from racing to get a nuclear weapon.” Nonsense. The deal grants Iran the ability to gain a nuclear weapon in a decade, and build the infrastructure to create a turnkey operation now.
3. Hillary Will Enforce The Iran Deal. Hillary claimed she would hold the Iranians accountable: “The agreement has made the world safer, but it has to be enforced, and I have spoken out very strongly about how I will enforce this agreement. I will hold the Iranians to account for even the smallest violation.” Really? Perhaps I missed Hillary’s statements on Germany’s intelligence report regarding Iran’s nuclear efforts. And Hillary hasn’t had much to say about Iran’s repeated ballistic missile tests, which technically may not violate the Worst Deal Ever but clearly violate the UN resolution sanctioning that deal.
4. The FBI Said Hillary Was Truthful. Here’s Hillary lying openly about the FBI’s conclusions about her email server: “[A]s the FBI said, everything that I’ve said publicly has been consistent and truthful with what I’ve told them.” She said that talk about her emails being released vs. Trump’s tax returns would be comparing “apples and oranges.” This is absolutely false. The FBI never said Hillary had been consistent and truthful in her public statements. They specifically avoided comment on her public statements. But they made clear that virtually everything she had said public was contradicted by the evidence.
Hillary’s the most corrupt major party candidate in American history. If Donald Trump had one iota of self control, he could be slamming her with alacrity today. Fortunately for Hillary, he doesn’t.
