Like mother, like daughter: According to a new trove of emails retrieved from her mom’s private server, it seems that former first daughter Chelsea Clinton has been using government influence as if it were an ATM, too.
According to a report from the Washington Free Beacon, emails on Hillary’s infamous private server proved that during her time as secretary of state, the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee tried to land sweet consulting gigs for Chelsea Clinton’s friends at both the State Department and the Pentagon.
“Clinton in 2009 arranged meetings between Jacqueline Newmyer Deal, a friend of Chelsea Clinton and head of the defense consulting group Long Term Strategy Group, with Pentagon officials that involved contracting discussions, according to emails from Clinton’s private server made public recently by the State Department,” the Free Beacon reported.
“Clinton also tried to help Deal win a contract for consulting work with the State Department’s director of policy planning, according to the emails,” the report added.
And this wasn’t just a passing acquaintance, either: “Deal is a close friend of Chelsea Clinton, who is vice chair of the Clinton Foundation. Emails between the two were included among the thousands recovered from a private email server used by the secretary of state between 2009 and 2013. Chelsea Clinton has described Deal as her best friend. Both Clintons attended Deal’s 2011 wedding.”
I’m sure she was the most qualified for the job, though.
Oh, sorry. I’m back. I had to take my computer in for repair as I was laughing so hard I accidentally cracked the monitor. Stupid Genius Bar.
While the Free Beacon pointed out that the sort of cronyism Hillary and Chelsea engaged in wasn’t illegal per se, it did “violate federal ethics rules that prohibit partiality, or creating the appearance of conflicts of interest.”
I’m sure that probably wouldn’t have bothered in the least Hillary even if she knew what an “ethics rule” was, but it should bother American voters a great deal.
If the media’s polls are correct (and we have reason to doubt their accuracy, but let’s assume that they are) America may be about to elect a woman as president who’s committed high crimes, misdemeanors, ethics violations, campaign finance violations, moving violations, Depeche Mode’s 1990 World Violation Tour, congressional rule breaking, State Department rule breaking, and breaking the first rule of Fight Club. If it can be contravened, Hillary Clinton pretty much stands in contravention of it.
