Hillary Clinton Investigating self, Reports Shocking Discoveries

I think a candidate for president needs to be thoroughly vetted, don't you? Hillary Clinton certainly agrees, which is why she is hiring investigators to find out more about herself:

Hillary Rodham Clinton, the subject of intense news media attention and public scrutiny for the last three decades, is preparing for another thorough vetting as she plans for a likely presidential campaign. In this case, however, it’s not Republicans trying to thwart her or journalists looking for a juicy scoop, but researchers she herself has hired. Some expressed concern that she was beginning this self-scrubbing process relatively late, and might not leave herself enough time to learn about her own potential vulnerabilities to be able to respond effectively.

More recently, Republicans and reporters have turned their sights to the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation for accepting donations from foreign countries after Mrs. Clinton left the State Department. The scrutiny has focused on which entities donated to the foundation, and whether there was any overlap with Mrs. Clinton’s diplomatic work.

Dennis Cheng, who led the foundation’s recent endowment drive to alleviate some of the fund-raising pressure on former President Bill Clinton, recently departed and is expected to play a big role raising money for another Clinton presidential campaign.

Not only do I support this effort, but think Mrs. Clinton should lead the investigation to find out more about herself!

The first thing she should do is grill the big donors to her foundation, especially big foreign entities for whom donation to a presidential campaign might look awkward. Ask them if she promised them any special favors in return for all the money they gave her foundation. Were they donating money to get influence with Mrs. Clinton if she were elected president? By asking the foreign donors if she promised them anything in return for their donations if she were elected president, Mrs. Clinton can find out what, if anything, she promised these donors.

Mrs. Clinton should also investigate how she made $100,000 out of a $1,000 investment in cattle futures, thanks to help from Tyson Foods. Was this a hidden campaign contribution? Mrs. Clinton should ask Tyson what help they gave her, and also asked what she promised them in return for this help. If necessary Mrs. Clinton should depose everyone involved, including herself, and ask some tough questions.

Mrs. Clinton should look into whether she refused to increase security to our embassy in Libya before the terrorist attack. She should interview people she worked with at the State Department to see if she gave the order denying the security upgrades. She should also ask around to see if she tried to cover up the investigation after the attack.

Then there was the suspicious suicide of White House aide Vince Foster. Hillary should get out front on this and have the fingerprints on the gun checked to see if they match her own, and rewrite the suicide note in her own handwriting to see how close of a match the handwriting is to Vince's.

And so on and so on.

So what is this really about? Obviously Mrs. Clinton knows all about her own history; but, like a good defense lawyer for a mobster, she is just trying to find out what the other side is capable of finding out about her so she can prepare her own defense. An honest person would not need to do this.
