“Honest and trustworthy.”

Those are the traits more than one-third of all American voters consider most important in a 2016 Presidential candidate.

Unsurprisingly, nearly 60% of those same Americans believe Hillary Clinton is lacking those qualities.

This should come as no surprise. After all, Americans are sick and tired of being lied to by politicians.  And Hillary Clinton sums up everything that’s wrong with our political system.

For decades, the Clintons have been plagued by scandals with all of America bearing witness.

Bill and Hillary have been caught lying (“I did not have sexual relations with that woman”) and stealing (attempted to take $190,000 in gifts and furnishings from the White House).

What’s worse, these don’t even make it to the top tier of Clinton scandals.

Read below to take a fresh look at the some of the worst scandals that could sink the Clintons’ White House ambitions.

 

  1. Benghazi

On September 11, 2012 radical Islamic terrorists attacked a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya and murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

In the coming days, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spewed claims that the uprising was a spontaneous demonstration caused by an online video that was considered offensive to radical Islamists.

We now know that the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton lied about the cause for the terrorist attack.  It was in fact a coordinated assault by al-Qaeda linked groups. Evidence now shows Hillary Clinton’s state department flatly refused multiple requests for increased security from Ambassador Stevens, abandoning him and his colleagues on the ground.

A House committee continues to investigate the killings and aftermath of that fateful night.

 

  1. Email Server

During her tenure as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton used an unsecure server located in her New York home. The server was so unsecure, it went unencrypted for a period of her time as the nation’s highest ranking diplomat in which she traveled to countries like China, Egypt, Israel, Japan, and South Korea.

According to several members of the U.S intelligence community, Clinton’s private and unsecured email server was a major national security risk. Upon being exposed, public pressure forced the Clinton’s to hand over the server to the FBI. This was done only after deleting tens of thousands of emails the Clintons deemed “personal.”

The FBI’s investigation is ongoing.

 

  1. Clinton Foundation

The Clinton Foundation is full of shady deals.

The Foundation accepted millions of dollars in foreign government donations from countries like Saudi Arabia and Algeria while Hillary Clinton was serving as Secretary of State.

What makes this so controversial and troublesome for the Clinton’s is the fact that the Clintons never even reported some of the contributions, raising a huge red flag.

On top of it all, the Constitution is clear:  U.S. Diplomats cannot accept money from foreign governments without the explicit permission from Congress.

 

  1. IRS Gestapo

The Clintons used IRS audits to target individuals and groups who caused problems for their administration.  In fact, in 2002, Judicial Watch reported that an IRS official admitted the Clintons targeted their legal opponents with tax audits.

Although the narrative today is that Obama used the power of the IRS to target and audit conservative groups, it seems he borrowed the tactic from a keen ally and his democratic predecessor, Bill Clinton.

With a Hillary Clinton president, history seems to indicate those who hold views of limited government will be subject to an IRS audit.

 

  1. Filegate

Not only did the Clintons use the IRS to scrutinize their political enemies, they used the FBI to illegally obtain hundreds of files on perceived adversaries in an attempt to smear them. Most of whom worked in Republican administrations.

Its alleged that Hillary Clinton herself may have been the one to request the private files to use for political purposes.

Although the House investigation by the Government Reform and Oversight Committee and the Senate investigation by the Judiciary Committee was eventually thrown out by a federal judge, many questions still linger.
