Jill Abramson: Hillary’s not dishonest–just secretive, duplicitous, and unappealing

March 29, 2016

From my latest blog post for the Independent Women’s Forum:

And Hillary is an honorable woman.

Jill Abramson defending Hillary Clinton in the U.K. Guardian–or Mark Antony declaiming over Julius Caesar’s body after his assassination?

Abramson writes:

“Hillary Clinton is fundamentally honest and trustworthy.”

But then again:

“Many investigative articles about Clinton end up ‘raising serious questions’ about ‘potential’ conflicts of interest or lapses in her judgment. Of course, she should be held accountable. It was bad judgment, as she has said, to use a private email server. It was colossally stupid to take those hefty speaking fees, but not corrupt.”

And:

“I can see why so many voters believe Clinton is hiding something because her instinct is to withhold. As first lady, she refused to turn over Whitewater documents that might have tamped down the controversy. Instead, by not disclosing information, she fueled speculation that she was hiding grave wrongdoing.”

And:

“The same pattern of concealment repeats itself through the current campaign in her refusal to release the transcripts of her highly paid speeches. So the public is left wondering if she made secret promises to Wall Street or is hiding something else.”
