By now we all know that McCabe is out, and with it years of service down the tubes with his name ruined forever. That is what happens when one get’s mixed up with the Clintons. The Clintons give a siren call to others to join them in their corruption. McCabe is only the beginning. Before this is over, no doubt there will be dozens who were lured by the corrupters and if lucky will only lose their reputation if not spend years behind bars. I leave you with this for a Saturday’s contemplation.
Yet there’s another dimension to their chronic crookedness, and it gets insufficient attention even though it might be more important to the nation’s well-being.
“Wherever they go, whatever they do, ethics are trashed and suspicions of criminal conduct follow them like night follows day.”
It is that, in addition to being personally corrupt, the Clintons are corrupters. They are piggish users, with the people and institutions around them inevitably tarnished and sometimes destroyed even as the Clintons escape to their next scam.
The explosive result shows the Clintons haven’t lost their touch for leaving destruction and chaos in their wake. The remarkable events also serve as a clear reminder that while the Clintons enriched themselves over the years, they were helping to bankrupt the public trust in its government and institutions. And they won’t stop until they’re stopped
It’s who they are and it’s self-delusional to believe another stint in the White House would make the Clintons better people. Power exacerbates rather than cures an absence of integrity.
