Now we know why.
Twenty years ago, Michael Chertoff was near the top of the Clintons’ enemy list. He was the lead Republican counsel on the Senate Whitewater Committee, one of the first of many congressional investigations into Hillary Clinton.
Clinton later cast the only vote in the Senate against him when he was nominated in 2001 to head the Justice Department’s criminal division. She was also the lone no vote against Chertoff in 2003, when he was nominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the third circuit.
All of this, though, was before the Republican Party nominated Donald Trump as its presidential candidate. This has shaken the party of Reagan. Chertoff, a lifelong Republican, will now be voting for the Democrat in November.The Party of Reagan died when George Herbert Walker took office. The people who followed were Ford's people, Dick Cheney and the like.
They talked a good game, but for some reason they never got around to shrinking government. In fact, they added the woefully unnecessary Department of Homeland Security, which poses a bigger threat to our freedom than the EPA does.
By the way, did making the VA a Cabinet post make it better?
Chickens are coming home to roost this election. I would love to rid the government of these loathsome creatures.
