In the spring of 1978, the Clintons and two of their friends bought 230 acres of undeveloped land. The group envisioned a vacation community that was to be called “Whitewater.” But, interest rates quickly rose to 20% by the time the land was ready for resale, and sales were stagnant. A questionable loan for $600,000 was obtained by the investors that resulted in Congress spending at least 300 hours spread out over 60 sessions within 13 months, while taking over 10,000 pages of testimony and 35,000 pages of depositions from almost 250 people and millions of tax dollars later, to discover that Bill Clinton cheated on his wife and lied about it.
Now, forty years after Whitewater, with nonstop financial scrutiny of the Clintons from Congressional Republicans, while Sean Hannity competes to be the loudest voice on Conservative TV and Radio by demanding further scrutiny into the Clintons’ finances, a statement recently released by Sean Hannity’s lawyer, Christopher Reeves is as offensive as we’ve come to expect from those with double standards. Hannity’s lawyer stated, “I doubt you would find it very surprising that most people prefer to keep their legal and personal financial issues private,” adding that, “Mr Hannity is no different.”
In addition to the Clintons, I’m sure there are a few million Americans who would vehemently disagree with Mr. Reeves. Sean Hannity is sucking up limited resources designed to help poverty stricken Americans instead of people like him who reportedly make 36 million dollars per year.
During a time when Ben Carson, the director of HUD for Donald Trump, is hard at work redecorating his office while revoking and denying government assistance to millions of homeless Americans and eliminating billions of dollars in much needed housing resources, Sean Hannity recently received an additional $5 million in low interest loans from the low income government assistance program. That makes Sean Hannity a two-faced Welfare King. I wonder if he gets food stamps too.
