As previously reported, according to the New York Times, Hillary Clinton protected a top advisor in 2008 from being fired after he was hit with multiple sexual harassment allegations.
Crooked Hillary issued a second non-apology to the female victim Tuesday evening after she received tremendous backlash for her first non-apology.
Another thing to note, Hillary released the statement during President Trump’s SOTU address. Coincidence her statement was eclipsed by Trump’s speech? We think not.
Hillary received major backlash after refusing to apologize for protecting the advisor from being fired after he was accused of sexually harassing females.
That turned out to be a disaster so Crooked Hillary took to her social media again to address the firestorm over this bombshell story with ANOTHER blame-shifting, NON-APOLOGY.
This time Hillary released a long, winded statement about how she has spent an entire lifetime supporting and empowering women.
Reminder, Hillary Clinton referred to women who accused her husband, Bill Clinton of rape, “bimbo eruptions”.
Excerpt from Hillary Clinton’s official Facebook page:
The most important work of my life has been to support and empower women. I’ve tried to do so here at home, around the world, and in the organizations I’ve run. I started in my twenties, and four decades later I’m nowhere near being done. I’m proud that it’s the work I’m most associated with, and it remains what I’m most dedicated to.
So I very much understand the question I’m being asked as to why I let an employee on my 2008 campaign keep his job despite his inappropriate workplace behavior.
The short answer is this: If I had it to do again, I wouldn’t.
Before giving some of the reasons why I made a different choice back then and why looking back I wish I’d done it differently, here’s what happened and what my thinking was at the time.
In 2007, a woman working on my campaign came forward with a complaint about her supervisor behaving inappropriately toward her. She and her complaint were taken seriously. Senior campaign staff and legal counsel spoke to both her and the offender. They determined that he had in fact engaged in inappropriate behavior. My then-campaign manager presented me with her findings. She recommended that he be fired. I asked for steps that could be taken short of termination. In the end, I decided to demote him, docking his pay; separate him from the woman; assign her to work directly for my then-deputy-campaign manager; put in place technical barriers to his emailing her; and require that he seek counseling. He would also be warned that any subsequent harassment of any kind toward anyone would result in immediate termination.
I did this because I didn’t think firing him was the best solution to the problem. He needed to be punished, change his behavior, and understand why his actions were wrong. The young woman needed to be able to thrive and feel safe. I thought both could happen without him losing his job. I believed the punishment was severe and the message to him unambiguous.

Even more egregious, Hillary sent out a tweet linking to her statement and took a swipe at President Trump!
“I wrote a Facebook post about a decision I made 10 years ago, what’s changed, & on an issue you didn’t hear a single word about tonight. Take a look.”

Crooked Hillary got trashed AGAIN!
You’re saying that you believe as a woman you have a responsibility to look out for making women feel safe. Tell that to Paula Jones & Juanita Broadderick.
You are one demonic woman.

What did she do for the women abused by her husband, William Jefferson Blyth Clinton, except demonize them?

10 years ago you were 60 years old! You didn’t know the staffer should’ve been fired immediately for sexual harassment and yet you thought you were ready to be President & take on Russia, Iran and North Korea. 👀
