Hillary Clinton Criticizes Republicans’ Defense of President Donald J Trump Amid Federal Indictment

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed strong criticism of Republicans for their unwavering support of President Donald J Trump in the face of a federal indictment related to the alleged mishandling of classified documents.

Clinton, who faced her own controversies surrounding the use of a private email server during her 2016 presidential campaign, was asked about the Trump indictment and the Republican response to it during an interview on “Pod Save America.”

Republicans have drawn comparisons between Trump’s indictment and Clinton’s email scandal, pointing out that while Clinton was criticized, she was not prosecuted. They argue that a double standard exists when it comes to the prosecution of politicians. Clinton dismissed these comparisons, stating that it is absurd how Republicans refuse to engage with the facts presented in the indictment.

“I do think it’s odd let’s just say to the point of being absurd how that is their only response,” Clinton stated. “They refuse to read the indictment, they refuse to engage with the facts — there’s nothing new about that.”

Moreover on Tuesday, President Donald J Trump, pleaded not guilty to 37 federal felony counts.  The indictment accuses Trump of failing to comply with demands to return classified documents, including plans for a retaliatory attack on an undisclosed foreign power, as well as sensitive information related to defense capabilities and the U.S. nuclear program.

The unauthorized disclosure of these classified documents is said to pose significant risks to national security, foreign relations, the safety of the U.S. military, and intelligence collection methods.

President Trump as well as many other members of the Republican Party accuse the Biden administration of directly interfering with the upcoming 2024 election by weaponizing the DOJ to persecute, President Trump, the leading political opponent to the current administration.

A former President has never been indicted in the United States of America, many claim this to be a very dangerous and perhaps irreversible path to a “banana republic.” A similar comparison can be drawn from the current indictments on President Trump to that of the Russian government and the incarceration of Alexei Navalny, Putins leading political opposition.

In response to the indictment, Trump criticized Smith as a “deranged lunatic” during a public appearance and accused President Biden of orchestrating his arrest for political reasons. Trump likened his situation to political persecution commonly associated with fascist or communist regimes. President Trump brought attention to the dangers of the current indictment and all past political attacks when he stated he is experiencing, “political persecution like something straight out of a fascist or communist nation.”

Several other Republicans, including potential 2024 presidential candidates, have also raised concerns about a perceived double standard and have pointed to the corruption involving not only Clinton but also President Biden, for not being indicted for reasons equal to if not far more serious then what President Trump is undergoing.

Clinton emphasized that the focus should be on Trump’s actions and not on attempts to confuse the public or divert attention with extraneous issues in an attempt to deflect her own corruption.

The dangers of weaponizing the DOJ and attacking President Trump may be the very reason Clinton is attempting to take the spotlight off of her and President Biden. Just as the Biden Administration is using the DOJ to come after President Trump, if the Trump administration were to take back The White House in 2024, he could do the exact same thing which is what makes weaponizing the DOJ to attack a former president and current GOP leader a harrowing decision.

She expressed astonishment at the extent to which Republicans are defending Trump, describing their efforts as beyond anything she could have imagined. Clinton stated, “It is so profoundly disturbing how this could have been the break,” insinuating a departure from the Trump administration, she continued to say, “this could have been the opportunity to say ‘thank you so much for everything you’ve done for us, we really appreciate it, but this is kind of serious and so we’re not going to continue to defend you.’”

The writing is on the wall, Clinton’s fear of President Trump regaining the White House is evident when she suggested that the indictment provided an opportunity for the Republican Party to distance itself from Trump, particularly considering his current lead in the 2024 Republican primary polls. This suggestion is a clear sign of election interference and that the indictment has nothing to do with the legality of Trumps actions but solely to keep him from being elected as the 47th President of the United States.

Elizabeth Warren Acknowledges Unintended Consequences of Obamacare



Elizabeth Warren

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a longtime supporter of the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, is now acknowledging the unintended consequences of the healthcare legislation, particularly its impact on industry consolidation and rising healthcare prices.

Warren, who has been a vocal proponent of Obamacare, has recently had what the Wall Street Journal reported as an “epiphany” regarding the consequences of the healthcare law. In a letter addressed to the Health and Human Services Department inspector general, Warren, along with Senator Mike Braun of Indiana, expressed concerns about vertically-integrated healthcare companies potentially increasing prescription drug costs and evading federal regulations.

According to reports from Fox News, the bipartisan letter highlighted issues with the nation’s largest health insurers allegedly bypassing Obamacare’s medical loss ratio (MLR). According to Warren, these insurers, through vertical integration, have manipulated the system, leading to “sky-high prescription drug costs and excessive corporate profits.”

The senators detailed how conglomerates, like UnitedHealth Group, with ownership across various healthcare sectors, could inflate medical payments to pharmacies and, by realizing those payments on the pharmacy side, appear to comply with MLR requirements while retaining more profits.

Moreover, despite the Democrats’ argument that the MLR would benefit patients, it has incentivized insurers to merge with or acquire pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), retail and specialty pharmacies, and healthcare providers. This, in turn, has made healthcare spending less transparent, as insurers can allegedly shift profits to their affiliates by increasing reimbursements.

Warren, who has consistently voted against Obamacare repeal efforts, notably advocated for a “Medicare for All” proposal during her 2020 presidential campaign. Despite her prior support for the healthcare law, Warren’s recent concerns about its unintended consequences have raised questions about the long-term effects of Obamacare and its impact on the healthcare industry.
