Hillary for NY AG

Sometimes you just can't make this stuff up.

Out goes Eric Schneiderman, New York's Attorney General. Schneiderman was once the darling of the Democrats, a virulently anti-Trump crusader who was often characterized as a heroic feminist, an active supporter of the #MeToo movement, and a protector of woman. Until ... well ... he was accused of decidedly misogynist actions that allegedly bordered on sadistic behavior by not one, but multiple women.

So ... who should replace Schneiderman? Believe it or not, there are whispers that his replacement should be ... wait for it ... Hillary Clinton!!

Hopefully cooler heads will prevail, but in deep blue New York, who knows?

Charles Ortel comments:
For one thing, she [Clinton] certainly cannot fix New York's immense charity fraud problems because she is one of those problems. The last person New York needs as its chief law enforcement administrator is someone whose major credential is staying scant steps ahead of the law on too laxly enforced regulations for charities and solicitations.

Con artists, in politics and tied to charities, wrap themselves in gaudy, high-sounding themes, barrage any who might listen with frequent fundraising requests, and divert millions, even billions, of dollars away from deserving constituents or aid recipients, not to mention state, local and national treasuries.

While most of us appreciate there are few honest politicians, no thinking person truly believes that charity fraud is good — diverting money from organizations that actually help needy persons can mean you are stealing food from the hungry, medicine from the sick, or aid from victims of natural disasters.
Hopefully, the whispers are fake news and there is no possibility that HRC will get the AG nod. But let's have a little fun.

I can see it now. AG Hillary Clinton convinces Governor Andrew Cuomo to appoint Huma Abedin as head of the State Bureau of Investigation. Huma immediately orders a raid on Trump Tower and uncovers long-hidden evidence that Stormy Daniels was a Russian spy thereby bolstering the Dem's allegations of Russian Collusion. Trump is jailed on a visit to New York.

During Trump's trial, Stormy Daniels (now resurrected as a feminist hero by Democrats) is scheduled to appear as the key state witness. Bill Clinton suggests that he and Stormy need to meet secretly on a private jet owned by Bill's buddy, pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, parked at Teterboro Airport to discuss certain aspects of the case. It's a closed door meeting.

The Clinton Foundation, re-organized and re-invigorated now that Clinton is back in government and able to grant favors to wealthy donors from foreign countries, brings in tens of millions. Most of that money is allocated to the expense line of the Clinton Foundation ledger—the expenses associated with Hillary's presidential run in 2020.

In an act of faux-graciousness, Hillary offers Trump a plea deal if he'll just admit that she lost because she's a woman or a capitalist or anti-Russian or something ...
