Hillary Clinton: Will Dems Nominate Reported Violent Spouse Abuser for President?
A new book based on interviews with White House staff contains allegations that then First Lady Hillary Clinton violently attacked her husband President Bill Clinton in the White House residence on several occasions.
One attack on the President reportedly drew blood which required stitches that could have gotten Hillary Clinton serious prison time if it was reported to law enforcement at the time.
The political press so far is completely ignoring the idea that Hillary Clinton’s potential presidential candidacy could be sunk by her being a reputed spouse beater.
The double standard involved is one conservatives are used to. Just switch Sarah Palin with Hillary Clinton and know it would be wall-to-wall coverage with calls for law enforcement to investigate and for Palin to withdraw her candidacy.
Hillary Clinton’s rage problem is no secret. It was on display during the January, 2013 Senate Benghazi hearing where she infamously shrieked, “What difference at this point does it make?”
The stories of Hillary Clinton’s spousal abuse are reported in the book, The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House by journalist Kate Andersen Brower.
Brower gave an interview with CNN in which she is laughing and smiling while telling the story of Hillary Clinton’s violent, bloody attack on her husband the President of the United States.
Apparently, spousal abuse is funny if committed by a feminist icon running for president.
An example of how the political press is playing this comes from Politico, which published a lengthy book excerpt that left out Hillary’s alleged bloody attack on Bill.
Politico did lead with the ‘lamp throwing’ incident which as the Clinton defenders might say, is ‘old news’. But Politico left out the damning alleged criminal attack.
“White House Florist Ronn Payne remembers one day in 1998, after President Clinton had publicly admitted to his affair with a former White House intern, when he was coming up the service elevator with a cart to pick up old floral arrangements and saw two butlers gathered outside the West Sitting Hall listening in as the Clintons argued viciously with each other. The butlers motioned him over and put their fingers to their lips, telling him to be quiet. All of a sudden he heard the first lady bellow “goddamn bastard!” at the president—and then he heard someone throw a heavy object across the room. The rumor among the staff was that she threw a lamp. The butlers, Payne said, were told to clean up the mess. In an interview with Barbara Walters, Mrs. Clinton made light of the story, which had made its way into the gossip columns. “I have a pretty good arm,” she said. “If I’d thrown a lamp at somebody, I think you would have known about it.”
Fortunately, the New York Post reported days earlier on the bloody attack alleged in the book:
“During the height of President Bill Clinton’s Monica Lewinsky scandal, a White House maid entered the bedroom to clean and was shocked to find the president and first lady’s bed covered in blood.
“The blood belonged to the president, who said publicly that he “hurt himself running into the bathroom door in the middle of the night.”
“But the White House residence staff believed differently. As one worker told author Kate Anderson Brower, “We’re pretty sure [Hillary Clinton] clocked him with a book.”
““There were at least 20 books on the bedside table for his betrayed wife to choose from,” Brower adds, “including the Bible.””
…(a)”(1) any individual who is the President of the United States, the President-elect, the Vice President, or, if there is no Vice President, the officer next in the order of succession to the Office of the President of the United States, the Vice President-elect, or any person who is acting as President under the Constitution and laws of the United States,
“(e) Whoever assaults any person designated in subsection (a)(1) shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both…”
Spousal abuse is a serious matter. The political press owes it to victims of spouse abuse to seriously investigate Hillary Clinton so the public knows whether or not she is a violent spouse abuser.
