'Clinton Inc.' - A look inside the Clinton family

What a difference a week makes. A week after Hillary Clinton stumbled, both literally — at a Sept. 11 memorial — and figuratively — by calling half of Donald Trump supporters “a basket of deplorables” — polls show that the race for the White House is essentially tied.

While Hillary falters, Mr. Trump is picking up speed. His series of pro-growth proposals announced last week indicates that his new campaign team is keeping him on message and preventing him from speaking off the cuff. But let’s not kid ourselves. The outcome of the presidency will turn on whether any of Hillary’s brewing scandals boil over into the mainstream.

These scandals have been well-covered — from setting up a private email server to seemingly accepting donations to the Clinton Foundation in return for political favors to blaming the Benghazi attacks on a YouTube video. They go all the way back to her 100 fold profit trading cattle futures, which she explained away with the pedestrian excuse of reading The Wall Street Journal.

What hasn’t been widely addressed, however, is the psychology behind such perpetual scandals. A new documentary that hits theaters later this month called “Clinton Inc.,” which I had the opportunity to see an advance screening of, gives a behind-the-scenes look at the Clintons, their unique marriage arrangement, and how it has influenced their political actions and controversy.
