FBI-Clinton Investigation Impacts Four Presidents

As the dam breaks on the latest Hillary Clinton scandals (emails & The Clinton Foundation), four U.S. presidents could get caught up in the deluge: Presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and George H.W. Bush.

It appears that Obama lied when he said that he only learned about Hillary Clinton's secret server when the news broke to the general public. Apparently, Obama also sent and received Clinton unsecured emails himself, which was against the law. Perhaps that is why he is working so hard to get Hillary elected -- as protection from prosecution. Or perhaps after he leaves office, Obama wants to get in on the easy money that has so enriched previous presidents and prime ministers around the world, as they peddle their influence at the public's expense through organizations, such as the Bush family's Carlyle Group and the Clinton Foundation. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2001/oct/31/september11.usa4

And that is why the Clinton-Bush connection (or cartel) screams out for attention now. In the wake of the ongoing FBI investigation, what has not been widely discussed in the corporate media is the decades-long relationship between the Clinton and the Bush families. It has a long and sordid history. Reports dating back to the Iran-Contra days in the 1980's, describe the corrupt relationship between the Clintons and then Vice-President George H.W. Bush (and former CIA Director), as drugs were being trafficked into the U.S. by the CIA through Mena, Arkansas. https://ajmacdonaldjr.wordpress.com/2010/03/08/george-h-w-bush-and-bill-clinton-corruption-cocaine-and-murder

In recent decades, former Presidents George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush, have partnered with the Clinton Foundation and its Global Initiative on many natural disasters, including: The Tsunami in India (2004), Hurricane Katrina (2005), the Haiti earthquake disaster (2010), Hurricane Sandy (2012), and Typhoon Haiyan in the Phillipines (2013) are some, but perhaps not all of their shared enterprises.

And now, it appears that these Clinton-Bush charitable projects did much more to enrich themselves, than to serve the public. http://www.wnd.com/2015/10/clinton-foundation-fraud-began-with-exploiting-earthquake

Add to that, the Bush family's indications that they will be voting for Hillary Clinton for President, and that pretty much cements their uncomfortably close relationship. Although the Clintons and the Bushes often share the same stage and speaking engagements, it appears that in preparation for Hillary's run for the White House, the Clintons took some pains to hide their connection. Bill Clinton's speaking fees to the Bushes Carlyle Group appear to be missing from his 2012 federal financial disclosure filing http://peureport.blogspot.com/2014/06/bill-clintons-undecleared-carlyle-group.html.

Maybe that was an accidental omission. What was no accident is that Billy Bush (nephew of President George H.W. Bush and first cousin of President George W. Bush), provided the tape that almost torpedoed Donald Trump's election hopes. For anyone who thinks that it was just a coincidence, the Bush family is full of strange coincidences at tragic moments in our nation's history. Such as Marvin P. Bush, George W. Bush's younger brother, who was a principal in a company called Securacom that provided security for the World Trade Center on 9/11 in 2001. Or the son of then Vice President George H. W. Bush, Neil Bush, who invited Scott Hinckley to have dinner on the same day in 1981 that Scott's brother, John W. Hinckley Jr., shot President Ronald Reagan. Or George H.W. Bush, for whom there is compelling evidence, was a CIA agent and involved in JFK's assassination in 1963. http://www.wnd.com/2013/09/did-george-h-w-bush-witness-jfk-assassination/.

Both the Bushes and the Clintons have been implicated in a decades-long trail of scandals. They are considered by many to be crime families whose tentacles reach far and wide. However, they could not have gotten away with so much without a lot of help from powerful insiders and an army of complicit agents. One high profile example is James Comey, who has been in charge of two controversial investigations (if not cover-ups) of Bill and Hillary Clinton. Besides Hillary's 2015 email investigation, that Comey badly mishandled, he also led the DOJ's 2002 flawed investigation into Bill Clinton's last minute pardon of Marc Rich. Another coincidence?

As much as the FBI should be applauded for their efforts to uncover this most recent Clinton scandal, they should also be aware of those within their own ranks who have protected the Bushes and the Clintons for many decades. And take care. The Bush-Clinton Cartel appears to be capable of anything.
