Hillary Clinton GOES OFF When Challenged by NH Voter on Whitewater, Benghazi, Emails (VIDEO)
Leading Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was asked about her scandal-ridden past and present by an unknown man at a Littleton, New Hampshire campaign stop on Thursday. The blunt question irritated Clinton while stunning a reporter and Clinton’s supporters in attendance.
Clinton told the questioner to go back three decades to the previous century and read up on her ancient history. Clinton also lied to the man by saying all the scandals ‘washed out’, covering up the numerous convictions and plea deals from investigations of the Clintons and their associates, including her husband former President Bill Clinton who copped a plea with a special prosecutor, was impeached, disbarred and held in contempt of court.
Question: “Um, you said earlier that you wanted to end corruption, but how can you do that after the Whitewater scandals, Benghazi and the deleted emails?” (Groans from the audience.)
A perturbed Clinton stood up and answered:
“Well, I wish you’d go back and read the history of 1990s, because clearly uh, there (five second pause for applause from crowd), there were unfortunately a lot of partisans who uh, thought that the best way to work uh, with my husband’s administration was through attacks of all kinds–all of which washed out.
“I was elected to the Senate in New York in 2000, and uh, New York is a pretty tough place to run for office from.”
Clinton finished with an imperious command and sat back down:
“And I advise you to go back and read my 11 hours of testimony. I hope you enjoy it.” (Loud applause and cheers.)
Video of the exchange was posted to YouTube by the Republican Party’s GOP War Room.
Here’s hoping the questioner takes the time to read the transcript, or at least view this ten minute video clip from Clinton’s recent marathon eleven-hour testimony where she was exposed as a venal liar about the Benghazi attacks by the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

The Hill quoted an RNC spokesman reminding voters Clinton is being investigated by the FBI for her State Department email scandal.
““Hillary Clinton’s trust deficit with the American people caught up with her again today, and she refused to give voters a straight answer about the FBI investigation into her secret email server or any of her other scandals,” RNC spokesman Michael Short said in a statement Thursday.
“The FBI is investigating whether Clinton transmitted classified information over a private email server she held while secretary of State. She has denied any wrongdoing.”
