As the bumper sticker says: “Ready for Hillary” – Her now headline grabbing email scandal laid dormant for two years. Only time will tell if this buried-at-the-time scandal will pick up traction with the public.
The right-of-center news portal Town Hall is citing on June 11, 2013, multiple news sources exposing that during her tenure as the U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton’s time at the helm was marred by various sex scandals so vast, one was described as “endemic.”
CBS reported on June 10, 2013 that in an internal State Department Inspector General’s memo several recent investigations were influenced, manipulated, or simply called off.
Of the cancelled or delayed investigations, specific examples include:
- An unnamed State Department security official in Beirut “engaged in sexual assaults” on foreign nationals hired as embassy guards.
- Yet another unnamed individual, this time an ambassador who “routinely ditched … his protective security detail” and the IG believes this was in order for him to “solicit sexual favors from prostitutes.”
- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security detail “engaged prostitutes while on official trips in foreign countries” — a problem the IG describes as “endemic.”
Meanwhile At NBC…
Despite a name of a certain US ambassador posted in Europe percolating on various news portals, NBC has elected to play their cards close to their vest by plainly stating that, yet again, an unnamed diplomat has been cited as not only soliciting standard run-of-the-mill prostitution, but prostitution of the pedophile kind.
In what could be more than a slight detriment to her run for the Democratic presidential nomination, the alleged felonies happened under the Hillary Clinton watch at State.
To make matters worse, NBC reports that the investigation was ordered by, yet again, unnamed “top state department officials” to “cease the investigation.”
The ambassador who came under investigation ‘routinely ditched his protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children.’
A New York State Of Mind…
The New York Post took a journalistic leap of faith in citing a source initially named by CBS that the whistleblower, former State Department IG senior investigator Aurelia Fedenisn, found during the course of her investigation that “a DS (Diplomatic Security) agent was called off a case against US Ambassador to Belgium Howard Gutman over claims that he solicited prostitutes, including minors.”
Reportedly, the ambassador’s protective detail and the embassy’s surveillance detection team . . . were “well aware of the behavior.”
Even though it appeared that things couldn’t get worse, they have.
According to the revealed investigation, Undersecretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy ordered the investigation ceased, and to this day, Ambassador Gutman remains on duty in Brussels.
If You Knew Barry Like I Knew Barry…
Gutman is well known to Barack Obama due to him being a rather large donor to Obama’s run for the White House in 2008.
Large, as in $500,000 for Obama’s campaign, as well as assisting in finance the first Obama Inauguration.
