For years we have heard Hillary Clinton tout her support of women’s rights and equal treatment under the law. Well, if you’ve been paying attention you’d know Hillary hasn’t exactly lived up to her promises and campaign slogans. In the latest report of Hillary and her MANY crimes, it looks like those she’s not living up to her own hype. It appears that during her 2008 run for the White House, Hillary’s campaign had an issue with her campaign adviser being accused of repeatedly sexually harassing a young subordinate. What, how is that so? We all knew Hillary Clinton is a champion of women and says they MUST be believed. She’s told us so repeatedly.

In a report, the New York Times stated how then-candidate Hillary Clinton helped the adviser Burns Strider to sidestep the allegations and stay on with the campaign.
Reportedly, the complaint against Burns was made by a 30-year-old Clinton staffer who shared the same office with him. She admitted to a campaign official that Strider had rubbed her shoulders inappropriately, kissed her on the forehead, and sent her suggestive emails.
Clinton’s manager, Patti Solis Doyle told Hillary to fire him, but Strider continued working at Clinton’s request. Hmmm… do we see a pattern here of tossing the woman under the bus?
In response to the report, a spokesman for Clinton gave Fox News a statement from the law firm that represented the 2008 campaign. “To ensure a safe working environment, the campaign had a process to address complaints of misconduct and harassment,” the statement from Urecht, Kleinfeld, Fiori, Partners said. “When matters arose, they were reviewed in accordance with these policies, and appropriate action was taken. This complaint was no exception.” Sounds like a bunch of legalese to me. Doesn’t it to you?
However, it took some time for Strider to respond to the Fox News request. A spokesman for Nancy Pelosi also needed some time to comment on Strider’s behavior for Fox News.
Strider, who worked as Clinton’s faith adviser, sent her scripture readings every morning during the 2008 campaign, according to The Times. Strider was hired five years later to lead an independent group that supported Clinton’s 2016 presidential run, Correct the Record, which was launched by David Brock.
The woman who made the accusation against Strider during the 2008 campaign reportedly signed a nondisclosure agreement barring campaign staffers from publicly discussing inner workings of the Clinton team. How convenient is that?
So, where does this leave the MeToo movement? Will they challenge Hillary Clinton about this charge, or will they turn a blind eye? It seems like Democrats always seem to ignore the unthinkable when one of their own is guilty of things they often accuse others of doing?
