Hillary Clinton: Devil's advocate

Al Pacino's movie The Devil's Advocate is a good analogy for Hillary Clinton on the moral question of using free will to choose making a deal with the devil to advance her career.

The plot: Pacino is the devil and the head of a rich and powerful New York City  law firm.  Keanu Reeves is a young attorney and the devil's son.  Reeves is practicing criminal law in Florida, representing a man who molested a young girl.  He goes all out, pulling every defense trick, to walk the rapist.  He destroys the young girl's credibility on cross exam.  Reeves is then recruited to the Pacino law firm, where he mingles with the rich and powerful and makes tons of money, but his wife descends into mental illness.

At the end, Pacino gives a speech.  The gist is that we have free will to make decisions whether to do the right thing or not.  Reeves made the decision to walk the rapist and go for the big money.  At the end, Reeves is transported back in time to the trial of the rapist, and he informs the judge that he cannot represent the rapist.  He seemingly makes the right decision. The movie ends with Reeves telling a news reporter that he will give him an exclusive on why he stopped representing the rapist.  The reporter's face changes to Pacino's, with Pacino saying, "Vanity – definitely my favorite sin."

In 1975, Hillary accepted an appointment to represent a 41-year-old man who raped a 13-year-old girl.  She filed a motion with the court for a psychiatric exam of the victim, alleging that the victim fantasized about older men and attacking her credibility.  She had the rapist take a lie detector test – he passed.  She got the rape charge reduced to fondling a minor, with time served.  Then, later, she was recorded in an interview laughing about the case and saying the rapist passing the lie detector test convinced her that the tests are not reliable.  Simply put, Hillary knew that the rapist was guilty but used every move to reduce the charges.

Hillary, like Reeves, made the choice.  She could have and should have refused the appointment because of her professed role as an advocate for women and children.  But she chose to represent the rapist and destroy the credibility of the victim when she knew that the rapist was guilty.  She then moved to Whitewater, defending Bill in his sexual assaults and the rape of Juanita Broaddrick by attacking the credibility of the victims even though she knew that Bill was guilty.  She followed by lying about the cause of Benghazi and has attacked the credibility of the victims' families.  In the email scandal, she deleted and erased emails that were under subpoena, then attacked the congressmen who dared to investigate her.

She used the State Department as a pay-for-play to get money for her Clinton Foundation.  And finally, one of her close aides when she was secretary of state, Patrick Kennedy, asked the FBI to phony up the security classification on the emails that had not been deleted and offered the FBI some overseas slots.  We are to believe that Kennedy did this on his own, a convenient buffer protecting Hillary and others.  In between, she stole furniture and silverware from the White House and State Department.

At every step, Hillary chose to lie, cheat, destroy records, hide records, and evade the truth to advance her career.  She went for the power, money, and glory on Earth.  She has never told the truth in these matters and never accepted responsibility.

Hillary chose to reign in Hell rather than to serve in Heaven.
