Hillary’s blackmail vulnerability might be even greater than Bill’s. It might still come as a surprise to some people, but Hillary’s blackmail exposure could be not just from the obvious one related to her emails, but on the same sexual front as Bill’s. How that might be is well illustrated by a joke that made the rounds in Washington some years ago: “How did Hillary and Bill meet?” goes the joke. “They were both dating the same girl.”
I explore that question in some depth in my article, “Is Hillary Clinton a Lesbian”? In that article, written upon the occasion of her bid for the presidency eight years ago, I conclude that her evident, but not admitted, proclivities would make her particularly vulnerable to blackmail. However, in the intervening period, our national opinion molders have been so effective that they have almost managed to maneuver sexual deviance onto a moral plane higher than that of sexual normality in the eyes of the public. While the press is now celebrating Hillary’s candidacy as “historic” because she will be the first woman to represent one of the two major parties in a national presidential race, one needs little imagination to see them celebrating even more the first open homosexual (“gay” as they prefer to call it) person to be in that position. That brings us back to the emails.
Now that FBI Director James Comey has told us that the email servers on which she, as Secretary of State, sent extremely sensitive state secrets were even less secure than the average gmail account, and Wikileaks has demonstrated how easy it was for someone to hack into the insecure emails of the Democratic National Committee, one may safely assume that any foreign intelligence agency worth its salt, not just the one in Russia, is in possession of those emails. As Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has hinted, that trove would no doubt include the ones that Hillary deleted and failed to turn over to our own government.
So, yes, sex has historically been a very powerful blackmail tool, and Hillary and Bill are both vulnerable to it on those old-fashioned grounds, but as things stand now, it looks to this one observer that this modern phenomenon, easily purloined emails, is even more powerful.
