Hillary Clinton: Fired from Watergate (1974)
❝ 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. ❞
According to Zeifman, she was one of a few individuals trying to deny President Nixon legal counsel and hid/removed evidence (legal files and implied they should be lost). And other things like that.
Even if Snopes and WaPo's water carrying is true, and she was "just following orders", that doesn't change the ethics/liability... at least not according to the bar or common decency. If your boss orders you to assault someone, and you assault them, then you are guilty of assault.
As does her defenses efforts of her and her supporters trying to get people lost in the weeds of technicalities and to ignore the bigger picture/pattern: a small scandal reveals other bigger scandals/questionable behavior, then someone close to her takes the fall, and we move on to the next scandal around her, while she or someone else to blames the "vast right wing conspiracy" for all of it.
For the record, that "vast right wing conspiracy", is a quote she plagiarized and took credit for... another pattern.
