Democrats are sick and tired of the endless lies about Hillary, the character attacks, the distortions of her record, the contorted caricature portrayed in the media. They want an unfiltered connection to Hillary without the prism of GOP-style talking points and false frames.

If the headline of this piece blows some minds, you can thank three decades of relentless lies and smears by the conservative attack machine and its mainstream media enablers, who have labored to create an aura of corruption around Hillary Clinton. Hillary’s detractors on the right, left and center reel off a laundry list of unsupported accusations with an air of absolute authority, as though it is simply a given that she is a terrible, horrible, no-good human being.

And that is precisely the intention: Taint her through innuendo and guilt-by-association, throw enough dirt at her that voters develop an instant negative association with her name. Accuse, accuse, accuse until the accusation becomes the reality, and may the truth be damned.

Karl Rove, the Koch brothers, and billionaire conservative moneymen like Paul Singer have spent inordinate sums to paint a malignant picture of Hillary, using sophisticated propaganda techniques to render her toxic to the American electorate.

Sadly, many on the left imbibe and regurgitate these fabricated narratives, spewing falsehoods and filth at Hillary with gleeful abandon. They are joined by mainstream media operatives with personal vendettas like Maureen Dowd and the Morning Joe crew, whose venomous words reveal more about their own failings than about Hillary.

But the fact is this: no one has ever produced an iota of evidence that Hillary has behaved improperly because of a campaign contribution. No one has produced a scintilla of proof that there is a quid pro quo when it comes to her speaking fees. From Whitewater to Benghazi to her emails, nobody can point to a single instance of corruption or purposeful wrongdoing on Hillary Clinton’s part.

None. Zero. Ever.

The most they have are votes or positions they disagree with. And even there, the false frames are tossed around with no regard for facts. Hillary’s voting record is as liberal as Elizabeth Warren’s, yet somehow Hillary is the one portrayed by some critics on the left as a sell-out, a closet Republican, a traitor to progressives.

During the Democratic primaries, Hillary’s critics portrayed Bernie Sanders as pure good and Hillary as pure evil. That’s hogwash. They are both politicians who make judgments and adopt positions, some of which we agree with, others we don’t.

Hillary’s Republican opponent, Donald Trump, has spent a year hurling insults at people who disagree with him. He has embraced intolerance as a platform. He has a shameful history of demeaning women. He lashes out at reporters in personal terms whenever he is questioned. He lacks even the most rudimentary preparedness for the office he seeks. He has a self-admittedly vindictive temperament which is profoundly ill-suited for the presidency. He has called our sitting president a terrorist and threatened Hillary’s life. Yet astonishingly, he receives less (yes, less) negative coverage than Hillary, according to two independent studies.

No matter how shocking this may sound to Hillary’s professional critics – those who spend their time condescendingly mocking anyone who says a good word about her – Hillary is an upstanding, principled leader who has survived the most intrusive, invasive, aggressive and unending vetting process in political history.

Time and again, she has emerged with her integrity intact. In the words of the Des Moines Register, which endorsed her in January, “Clinton has demonstrated that she is a thoughtful, hardworking public servant who has earned the respect of leaders at home and abroad. She stands ready to take on the most demanding job in the world.”

Having worked with Hillary for three years as an adviser and seen her approach to life and politics, having watched her as a mom and daughter, as a friend to so many people, I know that the rightwing caricature of her is an offensive distortion and I feel personally compelled to speak the truth and to fight the slander.

It is gratifying to Hillary’s friends and supporters (and infinitely vexing to her detractors) that rank-and-file Democrats see through the spin and connect to Hillary on a personal level. These are the voters across America who are poised to carry her to the White House in November, sending a monumentally important and inspiring message to women and girls across the globe.

Update #4 (8/12/16): This piece has received more than 320,000 340,000 355,000 490,000 shares since it was first published in January, making it one of the most shared articles about Hillary Clinton of the 2016 cycle. It has been updated and edited to reflect developments in the race. Since its original publication, the FBI exonerated Hillary on her use of a private email server, confirming that there was no purposeful wrongdoing on her part; Bernie Sanders endorsed her; and she became the official nominee of the Democratic Party, smashing a 227 year barrier. The basic truth remains: Hillary is an ethical, principled and upstanding leader who has always had America’s best interests at heart.

But isn't it possible that she campaigned at the behest of those wealthy and powerful people? From which she may have earned promises of substantial future benefits?

Wikileaks contains emails between Hillary and Rothschild, where Hillary is very apologetic to Rothschild for having to borrow Tony Blair for peace talks or something, when he was scheduled for some sort of Rothschild function.

And it's well understood that Soros issues orders to Hillary, again, from reading the wikileaks emails.

I would guess that Obama, Clinton, maybe the Bushes, maybe a whole bunch of people are doing things that are entirely illegal, and the Dems are very very concerned about the consquences of Trump and very concerned.

It may very well be that the boring old establishment that has been in charge of things for years and years has recently morphed (I'd say maybe around when Bush's friend Hinckley shot Reagan, or when JFK was shot - Bush was in Dallas) into some sort of super corrupt awfulness (Satanic Pedophiles?) that the Bushes and the Clintons thought they could keep up indefinitely. There are a lot of things that Trump might be discovering that he can put an end to. And get people jailed for. Some say that a lot of money was expected to be made by a pipeline going the right way through Syria. And killing everyone in Syria in an attempt to overthrow the Syrian government in order to put in a new government who would route the pipeline the way we wanted is what this whole Syria and Russia thing is about. It's also to try to confuse people about wikileaks and get people bored with it.

Soon enough we'll be able to spend a lot of time looking closely at wikileaks and punished the criminals for the crimes found in wikileaks. That will be interesting.

LOL
This was really resolved in 2008 election v. BO and I was really surprised the Dimocrats just went with her again in 2016 -
they couldn't have expected the Clinton machine could get trumped again.

A one term US Senator, former First Lady from perhaps the most scandalous White House ever . . .
From the 8:22-on mark . . .
"every time Hillary's been caught in a scandal . . . she really did it - no one made it up."

At the 9:41-on mark
"When you look at all the skullduggery in the Clinton administration, all roads lead back to Hillary."

30,000 deleted emails was not an accident. It may be true that nothing stuck, but Al Capone was squeaky clean too.

Al Capone used as an adjective to describe Hillary . . . Hmmm - She once said she watched or fav TV show was "The Sopranos"

U.S. appeals court revives Clinton email suit


(This Dec. 27 story corrects to say 55,000 pages of emails instead of 55,000 emails in 3rd paragraph)

In a new legal development on the controversy over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails, an appeals court
on Tuesday reversed a lower court ruling and said two U.S. government agencies should have done more to recover the emails.

The ruling from Judge Stephen Williams, of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, revives one of
a number of legal challenges involving Clinton's handling of government emails when she was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.
