An investigation into how the Clintons have amassed millions in personal wealth through foreign contributions to the Clinton Foundation, a supposed charity, in exchange for political favors... See full summary »
This documentary pulls no punches, to put it mildly, and with all the scandals that have enveloped the Clintons in the 22 years since it was released you would think that if Bill especially had done half the things he is credited with here, they would both be behind bars permanently instead of running a massive foundation and aiming for high office again.
Granted that Hillary in particular may find herself in trouble over her ongoing e-mail scandal, but although the makers of "The Clinton Chronicles" have produced a large number of apparently credible witnesses, the most serious allegations simply do not stack up. For example, at the end, Ed Willey is listed as deceased November 30, 1993 - official cause of death, suicide - with the innuendo that he was murdered. Whatever his or his wife's relationship with Clinton, Ed Willey was a lawyer who had been living beyond his means on other people's money. He was likely headed to gaol, so took the easy way out. Herschel Friday was another Arkansas lawyer who met a sudden death; he crashed his plane. But he was 72 years old. Did Clinton arrange that?
Kathy Ferguson was only 37 but she was the former wife of Clinton bodyguard Danny Ferguson; they had been divorced for two years. And she left a suicide note. Suicide is a surprisingly common cause of death; in January 2013, record producer David Wilson committed suicide inexplicably, shooting himself. The following month his lover the beautiful and talented Mindy McCready shot herself too, possibly partly due to rumours that she had murdered him. Like Kathy Ferguson, she was 37 years old.
It is so easy to whip up a conspiracy where there is none. Some basic fact checking of this documentary will doubtless reveal the real reason it was blanked by the American establishment and mainstream media.
