Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, known for a lifetime of lies to the American people, is urging any Trump officials potentially swept up in impeachment proceedings to “tell the truth.”
Clinton made the comments during an appearance with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.
Maddow noted that some administration officials during Nixon’s impeachment process had been linked to the Watergate scandal, wondering (hoping?) that the same scenario could play out with President Trump’s associates.
“Well, I think what many in the Nixon White House and administration concluded was the right thing to do was tell the truth. Tell the truth,” Clinton advised. “And that would be advice that should be given to anybody caught up in this.”
That’s right, the same woman who has been lying about why she lost the 2016 election for nearly three years is advising others to tell the truth.

“It’s clear that the president has made a series of decisions to benefit himself and his political fortune at the expense of other matters in our government and the people you point to are certainly aware of that,” Clinton added.
Earlier this week, in yet another example of a serious lack of self-awareness, the former First Lady revealed that losing to President Trump was like losing to a “corrupt human tornado.”
Pot, meet kettle.
She told Maddow that Republicans need to step in and not allow the President to “run roughshod over our Constitution, over the separation of powers, over checks and balances, over the rule of law.”
Clinton made these statements about rule of law just days after it was revealed the State Department has been ramping up a federal investigation into her mishandling of classified information.
“The State Department is continuing an investigation of email use among employees who worked for Hillary Clinton…asking scores of current and former officials to submit to questioning by the bureau overseeing diplomatic security,” per @EWong @maggieNYT.https://t.co/9sqi5R0fnK

A quick search of the fact-checking website Politifact shows dozens of false, mostly false, or ‘pants on fire’ statements made by Hillary Clinton over the years.
She was Secretary of State when the Obama administration repeatedly lied about the Benghazi terrorist attack being the result of a YouTube video. She lied about her emails. And she has fabricated stories frequently, on everything from dodging sniper fire in Bosnia to being named after explorer Sir Edmund Hillary.
During the 2016 presidential campaign Hillary was asked by a CBS News reporter, “Have you always told the truth?”
“I’ve always tried to. Always, always,” Clinton responded.
