Joseph Cohen: Hillary Clinton’s unethical past

Michele Spencer states in the second paragraph of her opinion piece on Hillary Clinton that “ unlike many she is principled.”

She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

Let us not forget, the Whitewater scandal, Travelgate, supposedly being under sniper fire in Bosnia and now the latest — lying about her emails and, worse, about Benghazi. Released emails show she knew it was a planned terrorist attack, yet she lied to the world, blaming a video,

Knowing the truth she looked the families of the victims in the eyes and lied to their face. She is morally and ethically unfit to be president. Vote wisely.
