Rex Murphy: There is a Clinton angle to every great scandal

In ancient days, when a group of women came forward with distressing stories about harassment or assault by a powerful, predatory, priapic male they were frequently dismissed with callous, viciously mean-spirited scorn. James Carville, the Lex Luthor brain behind Bill and Hillary Clinton’s ascension from the back roads of Arkansas to the splendours of Pennsylvania Avenue, backhanded Paula Jones’s allegations against Bill Clinton with the memorable snarl “Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find.” That was a savage line even in the 1990s.

    Mueller isn’t in place to investigate Trump he’s there to deflect and shut down any investigation of the Clinton Crime Family. Comey knew he was going down and set it up so his partner in slime wold be in control of the special investigation.

    Seems Wild Bill outdid Weinstein. No mention of the numerous trips Bill took on the Lolita Express plane.
    “As the number of Weinstein’s prey swelled to a full troop, it was inevitably noted that he was a long-time supporter and extravagant fundraiser for Hillary’s double run at the brass ring. Whenever it was roundup time for the Hollywood elite to pitch in for the sublime cause of putting the first women, and the champion feminist, into the White House, old Harvey exchanged the open bathrobe for the designer tuxedo. At fundraisers too numerous to tally, with Hollywood royalty and Silicon Valley’s plutocrats in attendance, he passed the hat and hymned for Hillary. How could it be otherwise? As duly noted, during the great “Pussy Hat” marches, “Harvey Weinstein mixed in with the sea of pink knit hats, showing his solidarity with women who, ostensibly, felt shamed and marginalized by predatory men in power.”
