Why Fear Trump Non-Scandals When the Clinton Administration Weathered Real Ones?

Timmothy Birdnow

A quick point to ponder; with an endless drumbeat of innuendo and claims of scandal, the politics of personal destruction seem destined to bring down the Trump Administration, or so many in the rickety-kneed GOP seem to believe. But one must ask, why do we assume that this is the end for Trump? Let me take everyone on a stroll down memory lane:

Bill Clinton was one of the most scandal ridden Presidents in history. He was investigated for

1. Whitewater
2. the firing and subsequent bogus prosecution of the White House Travel Office.
3. The, uh, disturbing death of Vince Foster (who apparently shot himself in the head with his non-dominant hand and then dragged himself a ways with his head bleeding out.)
4. Kathleen Willey's accusations against Clinton of groping her.
5. Juanita Broderick's very credible assertion that Clinton forcibly raped her (Hey, you better put some ice on that!")
6. Eileen Wellstone alleged she was sexually assaulted by Clinton at an Oxford pub when he was 23. in fact, there have been repeated accusations of sexual assault against Bill over the years, starting when he was NOT famous.
7. Credible accusations of drug use by Bill, including his "I smoked a joint but did not inhale" claim and his brother Roger, who described Bill's drug habit "he has a nose like a vaccuum cleaner."
8. Bill Clinton used the IRS to audit political rivals and conservative opposition. The Heritage Foundation, the National Rifle Association, Concerned Women of America, Citizens Against Government Waste, National Review, American Spectator (which was burglarized three times), the National Center for Public Policy Research, the American Policy Center, American Cause, Citizens for Honest Government, Progress and Freedom Foundation, David Horowitz’s Center for the Study of Popular Culture and the Western Journalism Center were all audited. See here.
9. Over 900 raw F.B.I. files wound up in the possession of a shady private investigator in the employ of the Clintons, and despite demands by Congress the Administration kept them for several years.They were clearly intended for blackmail.
10. Clinton, after receiving campaign funds, allowed classified American technology to be sold to the Chinese. A waiver was issued to Loral Aerospace so the firm could help china launch satellites - thus giving them the knowledge to make ICBM's which could strike the U.S.
11. Hillary's Rose Law Firm billing records went AWOL after being subpeonaed and turned up in the trunk of a car in a junkyard in Arkansas.
12. Clinton pardoned people who donated money to him.
13. Bill, not wanting to pay a settlement to Paula Jones, attempted to rig the trial by subborning perjury and obstructing justice. He would be impeached for this but not convicted. Later he would be found guilty by a judge he himself had appointed and given a slap on the rist - a fine and a five year suspension on his law licence.
14. When he left, Clinton stole furniture and china. His staff vandalized the offices, including removing the W's from keypads and whatnot.
15. Clinton signed the Executive Order creating the Escalante Grand Staircase National Park - on land containing some of the best low sulfur coal in America. He had received illegal donations from James Riady, who happened to own the world's other main source of such coal and would LOVE to make Americas off limits.
16. Bill Clinton had ties to Don Lassiter, the Don of the Dixie Mafia.
17. There was a strange number of deaths surrounding Clinton. See here and here.

These are just fifteen off the top of my head, and no doubt I have forgotten many. This is only counting the scandals of the Clinton Administration and not the many scandals since.

The point is, Clinton survived them easily and his wife was a hairsbreath from becoming President of the United States despite a whole new crop of scandals. Why are Republicans so terrified of these non-scandals that the fake media are promoting against Trump?

Republicans need to grow a spine, or some other, more peripheral body organs.
