Clinton Sacrifices Her Aides to Dolos, the God of Lies

Now that the official criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s “extremely careless” behavior with classified material is closed, the State Department is reopening their internal investigation. But the focus of that investigation will probably not be the former secretary.

[State Department spokesman John] Kirby said this week former officials can still face “administrative sanctions.” The most serious is loss of security clearances, which could complicate Clinton’s naming of a national security team if she becomes president.

Beyond the Democratic front-runner, the probe is most likely examining confidants Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan and Huma Abedin.

It must be a joy to lay down your career for the Clintons. Mills, Sullivan and Abedin can join the back of the line with people like the McDougals, former Gov. Jim Tucker, Craig Livingstone, and Robert “Red” Bone. They all faced fines or jail after becoming embroiled in scandals where the Clintons themselves got off scot-free.

But there’s a worse fate than simply having your career ruined or facing jail time. Vince Foster sadly ended his own life after riding through more than one scandal with the Clintons. Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown died in a plane crash.

The poor people at State who now have to investigate their once (and probably future) boss will only find evidence against her “confidants.” In every case, the aides and co-laborers with Clinton were sacrificed to Dolos, the mythical God of Lies, and now more names will append to that sad register of woe.
