By Hillary Clinton losing the presidential race, The Clinton Foundation has run dry of new people to shake down, blackmail and extort from. With Chelsea, they have a whole new group of people to pay to play, and the old ones. Yes Clinton &Co. may be back in business if the ugly daughter gets elected, yes sir re.
With Hillary’s life turned up side down, after writing two books, she has floundered in the political and social scene. Never really liked to begin with, she has nothing in the foreseeable future. With ugly Chelsea, however, she can campaign for the girl who on the Democratic nomination stage talked about white privilege. This comes from someone who lives in a 10 million dollar co op and receives a $900,000 salary from the Clinton Foundation.
Yes with Bill and Hill out of the picture, it makes perfect sense to have the ugly one run and keep the Clinton machine greased. Happy days for the Clinton’s, one of the biggest, if not these biggest crime families in the country. Uranium, Whitewater, Vince Foster, GATT, NAFTA,China or Russia, pick one; a lot more crimes we could bring up but the list is too long.

Suburban New York Democrats want the Clinton machine back in Congress.
Top officials in the Westchester County Democratic Party were pitching Chelsea Clinton Wednesday on launching a 2020 bid for Nita Lowey’s seat in light of the longtime congresswoman’s retirement announcement, according to a party source familiar with the matter.
The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss closed-door deliberations, cautioned that Clinton hasn’t personally expressed interest, but said local party leaders were reaching out to her within hours of Lowey, 82, announcing she won’t run for reelection next year.
“If you’re a Clinton and you need a hook, this is a good one,” the source told the Daily News, noting that Lowey’s 17th congressional district includes Chappaqua, the ritzy Westchester suburb where Chelsea Clinton’s prominent parents live.
Reginald Lafayette, the county party’s chairman, did not return a request for comment and neither did a spokesman for the Clinton family.

Lowey, who serves as the chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee and was first elected to Congress in 1989, unexpectedly announced Wednesday afternoon that she will step down next year.
“I love the job. I would love it probably for another 10 years, but, frankly, 32 years is a great career,” the 16-term congresswoman told The News in a phone interview. “For me it is so rewarding, but there comes a time…and I thought, this is the time.”

Clinton, 39, has long been rumored to be considering a career in public service.

Her mother, Hillary Clinton, served as a U.S. senator for New York for eight years before becoming secretary of state in the Obama administration. Her father, Bill Clinton, was the 42nd president of the U.S.
Two candidates have already announced Democratic bids for Lowey’s district, which spans parts of Queens, the Bronx, Westchester and Rockland Counties.
The congressional hopeful who has created the most buzz so far is Mondaire Jones, a progressive lawyer and activist who served in the Justice Department during the Obama administration.

Vying to become the first openly gay African-American member of Congress, Jones rapidly started fundraising off of Lowey’s retirement announcement.
“I want to thank Congresswoman Lowey for her years of extraordinary, inspiring service to the district,” Jones tweeted along with a link to his fundraising portal. “I’m looking forward to making my case to every voter in Westchester and Rockland Counties on my plan to bring bold, progressive leadership to Washington.”
Luz Awilda Moreno Casanova, a nonprofit project coordinator from Yonkers, has also announced a bid for Lowey’s seat.

News of Lowey’s retirement will likely set wheels into motion for a more centrist candidate to launch a 2020 bid as well, and Clinton would be a clear favorite, should she decide to run.
Lowey’s district is overwhelmingly blue, setting up ideal circumstances for a high-stakes primary next year.

A top ally of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Lowey hasn’t faced a viable Democratic challenger in decades. She won the 2018 midterms with 88% of the vote.

She leaves behind a historic legacy in Congress that includes being the first woman tapped to lead the powerful House appropriations panel.
In a retirement statement issued by her office, Lowey touted her role in advancing legislation benefiting U.S. interests across the world and said she will keep up the hard work until she crosses the finish line.
“Thank you to the people of my district for the opportunity to serve,” she said. “I will continue working as hard as ever — with the same optimism and energy — through the end of this term in Congress.”
