As if there weren’t enough reasons to entirely dismiss Hillary Clinton as a potential Commander-in-Chief as candidates prepare for 2016, it appears that yet another reason has surfaced. Fortunately for us, this multi-million dollar scandal may just be enough to put the final nails in her presidential hopeful coffin for good.
According to the Western Journal, “documents from the Department of State,” detail that, “Bill Clinton used his wife’s position as secretary of state to secure numerous lucrative speaking engagements around the globe.” Of course, at the time that Hillary claims they were in financial ruin, it appears as though the Clinton’s were raking in millions – $48 million to be exact.
The struggle is real: Bill Clinton gave 215 speeches, earned $48 million while Hill presided over U.S. foreign policy http://t.co/gzEfykQROH

As these facts are coming to light, a judicial watch investigation has been launched to dig up further unethical action discretely taken by the Clinton’s while using the power of her office. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton notes, “These documents are a bombshell and show how the Clintons turned the State Department into a racket to line their own pockets.”
Fitton further questioned, “How the Obama State Department waived hundreds of ethical conflicts that allowed the Clintons and their businesses to accept money from foreign entities and corporations seeking influence boggles the mind. That former President Clinton trotted the globe collecting huge speaking fees while his wife presided over U.S. foreign policy is an outrage.”
What do you guys think though – will this finally be enough to sink Clinton’s 2016 run for good? One would think Benghazi surely would have been enough, but apparently not. Feel free to let us know you thoughts on the matter in the comments below.
