Liberal legislators and left-wing activists have had enough of the Clintons and their political baggage; with 2018 hopefuls turning their backs on the Democratic dynasty and saying the couple is “too toxic” to campaign during the upcoming midterm elections.
According to Politico, Democrats looking to capitalize on the growing “Me Too” movement and claim moral high-ground on the sexual harassment scandals sweeping the country are trying to turn the page on Bill Clinton’s sordid history of misconduct and controversies.
“[Bill Clinton] just brings up a lot of issues that will be very tough for Democrats. And I think we all have to be clear about what the #MeToo movement was,” said Rep. Jayapal of Washington, a prominent leader of the House Progressive Caucus.
“I value the assets of what the Clintons can bring. He did a lot for Georgia when he was president,” added Rep. Porter. “He carried Georgia. The personal side that is now being highlighted, we’ll have to measure.”
Clinton insiders claim the former President is too busy working on his upcoming book to stump during the 2018 midterms, adding “President Clinton has been diligently working on his book.”
“He’s also been focused on the work of his foundation,” the insider added. “So, beyond a few requests for support and advice from a few candidates, he hasn’t spent much time on the midterms.”
BUSTED: Emails Show CLINTONS SHIELDED Weinstein for Decades
A bombshell report from the New York Times published Wednesday reveals what many had suspected for years; both Bill and Hillary Clinton knew about –and helped conceal- allegations of sexual assault against Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein for decades.
The article, titled “Weinstein’s Complicity Machine,” details the enablers surrounding the studio big-shot, including celebrities as well as prominent political figures; mainly the Clintons.
The author describes the “celebrity shield” that Weinstein had created around himself, noting “Chief among them were Bill and Hillary Clinton.”
“But two prominent women said they warned Mrs. Clinton’s team. In 2016, Lena Dunham, the writer and actress, said she was troubled by the producer’s visible presence during Mrs. Clinton’s presidential run,” the article adds.
Dunham reportedly sent an email to the Clinton campaign ahead of election day, telling staffers that “Harvey’s a rapist” and “it’s going to come out.”
“I just want you to let you know that Harvey’s a rapist and this is going to come out at some point,” the actress told the campaign’s deputy communications director.

HANNITY: It's Time for Bill Clinton's Day of Reckoning
Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night, Sean called-out hypocritical Democrats and the mainstream media for ignoring and covering up Bill Clinton’s sex scandals for nearly 30 years, saying it’s time for the former President’s “day of reckoning.”
“With new allegations of sexual misconduct swirling around US Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore, the left and the liberal media, they’re finally starting to re-examine their deplorable defense over the years of Bill Clinton’s long history of disturbing sexual abuse allegations,” said Sean.
“It’s taken almost 30 years for the liberal, destroy-Trump media to finally start admitting Bill Clinton targeted women for decades with criminal impunity,” he added. “Some in the media are coming to terms with what they did and what they said and how they covered it all up. The things that they did to protect Bill Clinton and discredit his accusers is beyond indefensible, it is shameful.”
“Hillary Clinton, she chalked it all up to some vast, right-wing conspiracy. This tells you everything you need to know about how Hillary Clinton see’s these victims,” Hannity said. “The Clintons over these years have been given a free pass by their political party and their friends and allies in the news media.”
