Two Presidents? Co-Presidents? Neither are permitted under the Constitution, but since when has the law stopped a Clinton? Laws are for little people. Voters should not be surprised that with Hillary they get Bill. Hillary’s campaign has joked about him being the “first gentleman” but the Wall Street Journal writes that the Clintons have bigger plans for Bill – plans that are in clear violation of the law.
What would a potential secretary of state face now that Sen. Clinton has already said she would use her husband as ambassador to the world? As a former president, would Mr. Clinton read the daily intelligence briefing? His unofficial portfolio would potentially overlap with everyone in authority, without his being subject to Senate confirmation.
The federal anti-nepotism law enacted in December 1967 — partly as a reaction to John F. Kennedy’s appointment of his brother Robert as attorney general — prohibits any official in the three branches of government, including the president, from appointing a relative to a job over which that official has authority or control. This means Mr. Clinton could not be a cabinet secretary or an ambassador, or White House chief of staff. His role would be necessarily ambiguous. At a time when voters are crying out for more openness in government, such an arrangement raises questions about transparency and accountability.
While Mr. Clinton’s return to the West Wing wouldn’t directly violate the 22nd Amendment — designed to limit a president to two terms in office — it has significant implications because of the unusual nature of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s marriage, which is such a deeply entwined political duopoly that “it has always been hard to distinguish who played what role,” according to their longtime friend Mickey Kantor.
The article concludes:
The concept of two presidents in the White House poses one of the biggest conundrums of this political season, and is an issue that can only grow during the general election campaign if Hillary Clinton is the Democratic candidate
Sure, there’s the 22nd Amendment and the federal anti-nepotism law, but violating both of those wouldn’t even phase Hillary “Benghazi” Clinton or her husband, the accused rapist and lawyer who has been disbarred for perjury. Remember that? Nor would it phase the woman who maintained an illegal email server as Secretary of State, a felony in clear violation of the law, that allowed foreign countries including Russia and China to gain access to national security secrets. It certainly wouldn’t stop the couple who engineered the Whitewater fraud that sent everyone involved in the deal to prison…except the Clintons.
These laws against sharing power with family members were enacted because we are a republic, not a monarchy. They were enacted to prevent corruption and make those who wield power accountable to the people. But the Clinton are at least as lawless as Obama and more corrupt – primarily because they have more practice.
Remind me again, why anyone would consider supporting Hillary Clinton?
Oh, and a note to the NeverTrumpers: This is who and what you are supporting.
And here’s a video compilation of some of Hillary’s best lies. It’s not all of them, of course. That would break the internet.
