Daniel Patrick Welch said on Saturday Hillary Clinton “has the blood on her hands that these Republicans, who are, for the most part, outright racists and proto fascists, can’t even dream about.”

Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has got so much blood on her hands that she should be in The Hague, not the Oval Office, an American writer and political analyst says.

On Friday, Clinton condemned Republican critics of her email practices, and went on to describe herself as the "most transparent" public official of modern times.

“I said, ‘make them all public,’” she said of her emails from her time as secretary of state on Friday. "I’ve been the most transparent public official in modern times as far as I know.”

Daniel Patrick Welch said, “This thing that Hillary Clinton comes out with now is just a gem of pathology and outright lying that ‘she is the most transparent politician in modern times.’”

“What the Clintons have done is to raise the art of pathological lying to stratospheric levels throughout their careers, and she stands accused of this wrongdoing on the issue of her private server, with someone about to be given immunity that could have some bearing on her presidential race, but the bigger lies are in what she says and what she does,” he told Press TV on Saturday.

“Right now she is running a campaign, a supposedly liberal campaign -- even though it’s not all that left, because she is trying to fend off an actual populist candidacy from Senator Sanders – nothing she says is the truth,” the analyst added.

“She’s been completely disingenuous, because once she gets in the office she will do what exactly what she espoused in the nineties with these trade agreements, that have decimated American infrastructure, American jobs, what she did in the Senate in terms of never meeting a war she didn’t like, what she did as a secretary of state, which is to prosecute and push hard for the destruction of Libya, and the mass murder of tens of thousands of people,” he stated.

Welch said Clinton “has the blood on her hands that these Republicans, who are, for the most part, outright racists and proto fascists, can’t even dream about.”

“Everyone is talking about how awful it would be if Trump won or if the Republican nominee won, what the Republicans are doing is threatening to do what the Democrats have actually been doing for the last eight years – this mass murder campaign, this regime change campaign, the death squad projects, all hidden in the artful dodge of the humanitarian intervention, which Hillary Clinton herself was foremost in projecting with the other two -- what a wittier analyst than I once called ‘The Three Witches of Eastwick’, she, Samantha Power, and Samantha Rice -- this evil trio that put a moral veneer over something that is completely just imperial arrogance, and hubristic intervention, just the killing, killing in the name of democracy, and taking credit for it as being helpful, just as old as the British Empire, as old as you know occupying India to save women from Sati.  It’s just an ugly and sadistic legacy,” he noted.

Clinton, who is running for president of the United States, has come under fire from her Republican rivals since it emerged in March 2015 that she used a personal email account on an unsecured private server for official business.

The former first lady has denied handling classified information on her private server. However, federal investigators, looking into the latest batch of Clinton’s emails released by the State Department, have determined that at least some of the emails contain classified information.

Clinton’s decision to use a private server potentially put thousands of pages of State Department emails at risk, but it also shielded her correspondence from congressional and Freedom of Information Act requests.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has reportedly expanded its investigation of Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state.

The ongoing investigation is now reportedly focused on determining whether the possible “intersection” of Clinton Foundation affairs and State Department business may have violated public corruption laws.
