Clinton projected to be first woman to win Democratic presidential nod




WASHINGTON – Hillary Clinton has secured the 2,383 delegates needed to clinch the Democratic nomination for president according to a count kept by the Associated Press.

The AP announced Clinton had hit the magic number on Monday night, one day before California and five other states hold primaries.

It's a historic moment for Clinton, who will become the first woman to be the presidential nominee of a major political party.

She would secure the nomination eight years after falling to Barack Obama in the 2008 primary. In fact, the AP announcement came nearly eight years to the day she bowed out of the 2008 race, later saying she had left "18 million cracks" in the nation's highest glass ceiling.

“According to the news, we are on the brink of a historic, historic, unprecedented moment, but we still have work to do,” Clinton said at the start of a Monday rally in Long Beach, Calif., shortly after the AP made the call.

Clinton is in the midst of a tough primary against Bernie Sanders, who has yet to give up the race despite tralling Clinton by a wide margin in total votes, pledged delegates and superdelegates — the party officials who have their own votes in the nominating contests.

    Hillary Clinton lied about facing sniper fire in Bosnia… still the dumocrats are voting for her.
    Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career.
    “Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”
    The actions of Hillary and her cohorts went directly against the judgment of top Democrats, up to and including then-House Majority Leader Tip O’Neill, that Nixon clearly had the right to counsel. Zeifman says that Hillary, along with Marshall, Nussbaum and Doar, was determined to gain enough votes on the Judiciary Committee to change House rules and deny counsel to Nixon. And in order to pull this off, Zeifman says Hillary wrote a fraudulent legal brief, and confiscated public documents to hide her deception. “As soon as the impeachment resolutions were introduced by (then-House Minority Leader Gerald) Ford, and they were referred to the House Judiciary Committee, the first thing Douglas did was hire himself a lawyer,” Zeifman said.
    The Judiciary Committee allowed Douglas to keep counsel, thus establishing the precedent. Zeifman says he told Hillary that all the documents establishing this fact were in the Judiciary Committee’s public files. So what did Hillary do?
    “Hillary then removed all the Douglas files to the offices where she was located, which at that time was secured and inaccessible to the public,” Zeifman said. Hillary then proceeded to write a legal brief arguing there was no precedent for the right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding as if the Douglas case had never occurred.
    The brief was so fraudulent and ridiculous, Zeifman believes Hillary would have been disbarred if she had submitted it to a judge.
    Yet the dumocrats still vote for immoral Hitlery
    Nothing is unethical in dumocrat politics as long as it achieves your goal….

  2. Let’s compare voting records… well Hillary’s is that of a communist and Trump’s, well that’s right he has never cast a vote as an elected or appointed office holder.
    You “really” should mention people that have no brains….. LOL

  3. if she was guilty of anything she would be in jail by now. spare the right wing RUMOR AND INNUENDO nonsense. Every reasonable person knows Trump is going to get trounced by Hillary. That includes down ticket establishment GOP who will lose and give the Democrats the House and Senate as well.
    Now lets talk about the imprisonment and incarceration of war Criminals Bush and Cheney… cause that and 2 million lost emails is very very real public admissions and evidence. dummy.

  4. She was so guilty she got fired and got four Americans murdered. She let them be murdered to coverup her illegal nation building activities.
    You brought up Bush & Cheney, they aren’t part of the debate. Try to concentrate and focus we’re talking about Hitlery and Trump.
    Your Non-Sequiturs is the tool of the loser…
