I Know Clarence Thomas. Hillary Clinton Lied About Him.

Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton attended Yale Law School. But they must have skipped class during the lesson in honesty related in “Marmion,” Sir Walter Scott’s epic poem: “Oh, what a tangled web we weave, / When first we practice to deceive!”

Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton struggled with the truth throughout their lives. Remember Hillary’s imaginary landing in Bosnia under sniper fire?

Or her invented right-wing conspiracy against Bill to smuggle his DNA onto Monica Lewinsky’s blue dress? Or her hallucinogenic proclamation that turning Libya into a terrorist-filled wilderness constituted “smart power at its best?”

A leopard can’t change its spots. It is therefore not surprising that I have come across a new Hillary Clinton fib. Although it may seem small, it speaks volumes regarding her ineligibility to lead.

Clarence Thomas was my mentor at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. I was fortunate to be his confidential assistant from an early age.

George H.W. Bush elevated Thomas to the U.S. Supreme Court. After a brief stint at the U.S. Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia Circuit, Bush was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is the most powerful and prestigious court in the world.

As Thomas’ confidential assistant, I was privy daily to many details of his private life. Our bond has endured until today and will continue until our natural deaths. While I am reluctant to discuss private matters in this case, it is justifiable to make an exception to keep the record clean and to defend Thomas.

Hillary Clinton recently appeared on “CBS Mornings.” To fortify the credibility of her polemic, she alleged personal encounters with Thomas during their attendance at Yale Law.

Students at prestigious law schools are familiar with the fact that they are hermetically sealed from each other by separate sections and assignments based on their year of admission or expected graduation. It is not uncommon for two law school students to never have spoken to one another during the same year or overlapping years. Students often form small study groups, and have few interactions with outsiders.

On CBS, Hillary Clinton claimed to have discerned the inner workings of Thomas’ mind at Yale Law, although she was not in his graduating class. She declared that she “knew” Thomas and perceived him as a “person of grievance.”

This is Hillary Clinton. “A person of grievance?”? Are they projecting their own vengeful personalities?

According to the book “HRC” by Jonathan Allen and Arnie Parnes, Hillary and Bill Clinton compiled an “enemies” list of people who declined to support Hillary in the 2008 presidential primaries. The book declares the two created “a special circle of Clinton hell … for people who had endorsed [Barack] Obama.”

Thomas was in fact one of 10 black Yale Law students. He grew up on a farm during Jim Crow. Is it easy for children to forget their childhood humiliations? Frederick Douglass was enslaved?

But let’s return to Hillary Clinton’s allegation that she knew Thomas at Yale Law. It is false. He didn’t know her. He did not know her.

After speaking with the justice, I concluded that they never spoke to each other. Her “person of grievance” speculation must be based on unreliable hearsay or eavesdropping.

Hillary Clinton is a tired politician who longs for relevance. She has little to no substance so she indulges in gossiping and a politics of revenge.

Strategically, her lies about Thomas’ Yale connection were timed to coincide Supreme Court decisions she opposed. Instead of addressing the merits of the decisions, she resorted to ad hominem attacks to excite her crowd of deplorables, blaming every evil in the world on gender discrimination–especially her 2016 presidential election defeat by Donald Trump.

Who is the true grievancer? Clarence Thomas or Hillary Clinton You decide.

Hillary Clinton will ultimately leave the scene. Chelsea, her daughter seems to be ready to pick up the grievance torch with renewed energy.

All of this goes to verify the wisdom of Henry Adams: “Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organization of hatreds.”

Have you ever wondered why nothing dries faster than a politician’s tears?
