Americans Shouldn’t Vote For A Leader Who Won’t Tell The Truth
- Clinton’s long history of lying has caught up to her in her 2016 race, even refusing to rule out that she has not and will not lie to the American people.
- Despite Clinton’s attempts to shift the blame for her low trustworthy numbers to “wild accusations” made about her, her most recent trust-eroding scandals, like her secret server and her corrupt family foundation, are self-inflicted wounds.
- Clinton spent the past 18 months lying to the American people about her secret server only for the FBI Director to personally expose her dishonest claims.
- The scandals involving the Clinton Foundation – from the White House ethics agreement that was repeatedly violated, to the repeated disclosure failures, to the massive conflicts of interest posed by foreign donors – have all called into question Clinton’s character and ability to serve.
CLINTON’S 2016 RUN HAS BEEN DOGGED WITH TRUST AND HONESTY ISSUES
Clinton Refused To Flatly State That She Has Not And Will Not Lie To The American People. CBS NEWS SCOTT PELLEY: “You know in ’76, Jimmy Carter famously said, ‘I will not lie to you.'” CLINTON: “Mm Hmm. Well, I will tell you, I have tried in every way I know how, literally from my years as a young lawyer, all the way through my time as Secretary of State to level with the American people.” PELLEY: “You talk about leveling with the American people. Have you always told the truth?” CLINTON: “I have always tried to.” PELLEY: “Some people are going to call that wiggle room that you just gave yourself ‘always tried to.’ Jimmy Carter said, ‘I will never lie to you.'” CLINTON: “You’re asking me to say, ‘have I ever?’ I don’t believe I ever have. I don’t believe I ever have. I don’t believe I ever will. I am going to do the best I can to level with the American people.” (CBS Evening News, 2/18/16)
Clinton Has Blamed Her Tanking Trustworthy Numbers On “Wild Accusations” Against Her, But The Reason American’s Don’t Trust Her Is Because Of Her History Of Lying To The Public
In June, At An Event In Chicago, Clinton Blamed Her Low Trust Numbers To “Wild Accusations” Made Against Her. CLINTON: “In other words, I will do everything I can to rebuild your trust in our government. And let me just say a few words about that, trust is the glue that holds our democracy together. But it is no secret that American’s trust in government has eroded. So has our trust in the media, business, religion, even professional sports. Something that used to connect us, that made it possible for us to believe in a shared present, and a common future, has worn away, it is crucial for our country to get this back. I take this seriously as a citizen, and as someone asking for your vote. And I personally know I have work to do on this front, a lot of people tell pollsters they don’t trust me. Now I don’t like hearing that, and I’ve thought a lot about what’s behind it. And you know, you hear 25 years worth of wild accusations, anyone would start to wonder.” (Hillary Clinton, Remarks At The Rainbow PUSH Convention, Chicago, IL, 6/27/16)
