Bill Clinton got a lot of help in the 1992 elections when George Bush’s Defense Secretary was indicted on the Iran Contra scandal.
A video has resurfaced of news broadcasts from 1992 that proves the FBI reopening the email investigation is not “unprecedented” like Hillary claims.
Back in 1992, Bill Clinton had a good lead according to the polls, but George Bush was surging down the home stretch.
That was until an indictment came down to one of Bush’s top cabinet members, his Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger.
Corruption was linked to the White House and Bill Clinton seized on some opportunities to drive home the message of corruption.
See the video for yourself.
It is funny that the video shows Bill talking about “corruption” and Al Gore talking about “trust” when 24-years later, Hillary’s campaign is facing the same issues.
Hillary clearly came out in her speech and said that this move by the FBI to reopen case at this time is “unprecedented”.
See the full Hillary Clinton press conference on Friday below.
Note that the entire press conference lasted only four minutes. It was her first press conference in almost a year and she only took three questions.
She was pretty quiet over the weekend, but there is only eight days until the election and this could really hurt Hillary at the polls next week.
Maybe it won’t sway voters, but it may discourage some of her former fans form going out to vote.
Her campaign was clearly shocked when the news hit on Friday and looks to find new footing after a disastrous week. She won’t win people over by having four-minute press conferences and lying about the “unique” nature of the FBI’s investigation.
Is the FBI reopening Hillary’s email scandal so close to the election “unprecedented”? Let us know in the comments below.
