“FBI investigation of Hillary’s emails is ‘criminal probe’

The FBI investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s unsecured e-mail account is not just a fact-finding venture — it’s a criminal probe, sources told The Post on Wednesday.

The feds are investigating to what extent Clinton relied on her home server and other private devices to send and store classified documents, according to a federal source with knowledge of the inquiry.

“It’s definitely a criminal probe,” said the source. “I’m not sure why they’re not calling it a criminal probe.
“The DOJ [Department of Justice] and FBI can conduct civil investigations in very limited circumstances,” but that’s not what this is, the source stressed. “In this case, a security violation would lead to criminal charges. Maybe DOJ is trying to protect her campaign.”

Clinton’s camp has downplayed the inquiry as civil and fact-finding in nature. Clinton herself has said she is “confident” that she never knowingly sent or received anything that was classified.

The inspector general for the intelligence community has told Congress that of 40 Clinton e-mails randomly reviewed as a sample of her correspondence as secretary of state, four contained classified information.

If Clinton is proven to have knowingly sent, received or stored classified information in an unauthorized location, she risks prosecution under the same misdemeanor federal security statute used to prosecute former CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus, said former federal prosecutor Bradley Simon.

The statute — which was also used to prosecute Bill Clinton’s national security adviser, Sandy Berger, in 2005, is rarely used and would be subject to the discretion of the attorney general.

Linda Tripp Hillary must never become president, Hillary Clinton is a liar who treats public with contempt, Tripp speaks out for first time in 12 years not 20, Numerous scrubbed NewsMax Tripp articles resurrected, Hillary will stop at nothing to achieve her end

“I think the most compelling thing about Hillary is that she will stop at nothing to achieve her end and that she views the public as plebeians easily seduced into believing her point of view.”…Linda Tripp

“He had been killed. I didn’t even at this point remember how but it was the reaction at the White House that caused me concern, as did Vince Foster’s suicide. None [sic] of the behavior following Vince Foster’s suicide computed to just people mourning Mr. Foster. It was far more ominous than that and it was extremely questionable behavior on the parts of those who were immediately involved in the aftermath of his death. So – I mean I don’t know how much more I can be specific except to say I am telling you under oath today that I felt endangered and I was angry and I resented it and I still do.”…Linda Tripp

After watching in real time articles about Barack Obama et al in 2008 being scrubbed and “rectified”, I made it one of my crusades to counteract the Orwellian efforts of the left to protect him.

The same thing has happened with the Clintons.

As reported here recently, many Newsmax articles from the 90’s and early 2000’s were scrubbed from the NewsMax archives.

I have begun resurrecting many of them and some of them about Linda Tripp speaking out about the Clintons, are presented below.

First, from the Daily Mail, July 28, 2015.

“EXCLUSIVE: ‘Hillary must NEVER become President’, says the woman who exposed Bill’s affair with Monica. Former Clinton West Wing assistant Linda Tripp says Democratic contender is a liar who treats the public with contempt”

“It was the scandal that saw Bill Clinton impeached and which threatened to bring down his presidency. For many, it continues to define it to this day.
But according to the woman who outed Monica Lewinsky as the president’s mistress, the real story was never about Monica. It was about ‘subornation of perjury, obstruction of justice… a true abuse of power.’ And it was about Hillary.
Because, according to Linda Tripp, it was Hillary who manipulated and stage managed the story, converting herself from a lackluster First Lady with unimpressive approval ratings to admirable First Victim – the blindsided wife standing by her man.
She made him forgivable. She ‘orchestrated the cover up’ and she made damn sure that she moved on. Nothing, and no-one, was going to stand in her way.
Linda Tripp, whose recorded conversations with Lewinsky – submitted to independent counsel Kenneth Starr – exposed the truth of the affair that both Lewinsky and Clinton had sought to deny, has never spoken fully until now.”

“After more than a decade of silence Tripp, 65, has chosen to speak out. In an exclusive interview with Daily Mail Online the woman who had a ringside seat throughout Clinton’s administration has given a damning insight into – and assessment of- Hillary as the ‘key player’ in the scandals of the Clinton presidency.
She describes Hillary as the true ‘ruler’ of the White House through her husband’s administration; tells how she watched Hillary ‘blatantly lie’ to the American people; describes her as utterly ‘ruthless’ in her pursuit of power; and voices her belief that Hillary must never gain the presidency – the position that has always been her goal and to which she has always believed herself entitled.
According to Tripp: ‘In her mind she would be part of a coronation instead of an election.”

“Tripp explained: ‘I think the most compelling thing about Hillary is that she will stop at nothing to achieve her end and that she views the public as plebeians easily seduced into believing her point of view.’
Tripp’s office was directly adjacent to Hillary’s second floor West Wing office for the entire time she served at the Clinton White House, with the exception of the first three months during which she sat directly outside the Oval office. Her position offered her unparalleled access to, and a unique perspective on, both the couple and the administration.”

“Speaking today she revealed: ‘I believe for all his faults as a flawed man, Bill Clinton is not as unscrupulous as his wife. He is complicit but he is not as deceitful as Hillary Clinton is. Don’t get me wrong, they are both missing the integrity chip but while she is inherently dishonorable, his seems to be learned behavior.
‘Hillary Clinton ruled the White House even as early as 1993 and every scandal that originated in the Clinton administration was the brainchild of Hilary.
‘When I think of Hillary Clinton I think of a lingering taint of scandal and wrongdoing and, in my opinion, possible criminal activity.’
And behind it all was, according to Tripp, the pursuit of the Clintons’ ‘common goal’ – power.
She explained: ‘She has stood by him all these years because she needed him. In 1992 no female, least of all she, would have been elected to the highest office in the land.
‘Their focus has always been power and the accumulation of that power. There were just so many things in the White House that made it abundantly clear to anyone in their radius that he was the elected official but she was the one with the actual power.'”

“She explained: ‘I can’t emphasize enough how relatively insignificant the bimbo eruptions were compared to the real issues.
‘In the case of Monica Lewinsky the story was never really about Monica or Linda Tripp. It was about subornation of perjury and obstruction of justice and a true abuse of power on the part of a sitting president.
‘That should have been the story. It never was.”

“According to Tripp what she witnessed behind the scenes at the peak of the Whitewater scandal ‘was not spin. It was lying to the American people knowingly and doing it routinely.’
She said that not for the first time and certainly not for the last: ‘This was not recognizing any controlling legal authority investigating the various scandals and obstructing the investigations at every turn to ensure the malfeasance never surfaced publicly.’
As for Hillary’s role, Tripp said: ‘I watched her on countless occasions blatantly lie to the American people and knowingly lie.”

“‘This was not a mistake or error or even spin. This was pure manipulation of the truth. In a press conference during the height of the Whitewater frenzy she was well rehearsed, her wardrobe was carefully selected to be soft and pastel and essentially every word out of her mouth, preserved for posterity, was a lie. It’s all of a piece with Hillary.’
Because according to Tripp, Hillary operates on the assumption that, ‘the rules do not apply’ to her or her husband.
Her modus operandi was, and continues to be, Tripp explained: ‘I will do what I want and then when I’m questioned I will say, “oops,” or “bureaucratic snafu”, and then after a couple of months her refrain will be, “this is old news, it’s been investigated, I did nothing wrong, let’s move on, it’s time to address the issues facing the middle class of America.””

Most of the news reports indicate that Tripp is speaking out for the first time in 20 years. From the articles below you will see that it has been 12 years. Of course these articles were scrubbed from NewsMax and mostly obscured.

“Tripp Testifies of Foster Death Cover-up; Murder of Jerry Parks
Christopher Ruddy
October 8, 1998
Washington–Linda Tripp told Starr’s grand jury this summer that she had significant reasons to question official claims about former White House Vincent Foster’s July, 1993 “suicide.”
Tripp, one of the White House Counsel’s Office secretaries, and among the last people known to have seen Foster alive, told the grand jury she knows that top White House officials committed perjury in their accounts of Foster’s death.
Tripp indicated to the grand jury Foster’s death was only one reason she feared for her life as she gained knowledge of Monica Lewinsky’s affair with President Clinton.
Tripp also detailed, cryptically, to the grand jury her heightened concern after the murder of Jerry Luther Parks, the former head of security at the Clinton-Gore 1992 Little Rock headquarters. Parks was murdered just two months after Foster’s death, in September of 1996 while driving through a Little Rock intersection. His car was intercepted and stopped and a lone assassin fired seven shots at Parks. At least three bullets were believed to be fatal.”

“Linda Tripp Blows Lid Off Filegate Cover-Up
Tells of Lewinsky’s “Death List” Warning
With his Dec. 14 deposition of key White House witness Linda Tripp, Judicial Watch Chairman Larry Klayman obtained the most important testimony to date about the collection of over 1000 confidential FBI files by White House aides D. Craig Livingstone and Anthony Marceca in 1993 and 1994.
Tripp’s bombshell revelations included an account of Livingstone’s firsthand admission that he was brought to the White House at the First Lady’s direction. “He told me Mrs. Clinton hired him,” Tripp recalled, dating Livingstone’s comment to “shortly after my arrival in the counsel’s office.” Tripp was a Bush administration holdover who worked in the Clinton White House from its onset.
Tripp’s sworn testimony also implicated Mrs. Clinton in potential Filegate illegality.”

“Tripp also shed light on an ominous threat she got just before the Monica Lewinsky scandal exploded. Tripp says that a two page note was left on a chair in her office, she believes, by Lewinsky. The first page contained the handwritten message, “Linda, just thought you’d find this of interest.” The second page was a list of people with connections to Bill Clinton who had died under mysterious circumstances. Tripp told Klayman that the handwrting on the cover sheet did not appear to be Lewinsky’s.
Klayman explained to the FOX News audience that lists circulating on the internet and talk radio cite a number of people with links to various Clinton scandals who have died under questionable circumstances Some were witnesses or potential witnesses, including key Whitewater figure Jim McDougal, Commerce Secretary Ron Brown, Clinton Whitewater lawyer Vincent Foster, Clinton security chief Luther “Jerry” Parks and Kathy Ferguson, whose husband Danny was named co-defendant in the Paula Jones case just five days before she was found shot to death.
In her taped converstions with Tripp, Lewinsky makes no fewer than four references to the concerns she had for her own safety. In one recording Lewinsky tells Tripp, “See, my mom’s big fear is that (Clinton) is going to send somebody out to kill me.” In another exchange, Lewinsky explains that the primary reason she filed a false affidavit denying sex with Clinton was – “First of all, for fear of my life. I would not – for fear of my life, I would not – I would not cross these people for fear of my life, number one.””

“Tripp: Hillary Directed Waco, Bill Abused Monica
Hillary Clinton pressured the late Vince Foster to resolve the 1993 Waco standoff in a move that led to the deaths of more than 80 men, women and children, former White House aide Linda Tripp charged in an interview Friday night.
Tripp also alleged that Monica Lewinsky was more of a victim of Bill Clinton’s sexual predations than the former White House intern has publicly acknowledged.
Appearing on CNN’s “Larry King Live,” Tripp suggested that Foster, at Mrs. Clinton’s direction, transmitted the order to move on the Branch Davidian’s Waco compound, which culminated in a military-style tear gas attack on the wooden structure.
The compound burst into flames hours later as federal troops used a U.S. Army tank to ram the building and insert flammable gas.
Tripp described Foster’s demeanor as “dignified, decent, caring, smart” during his early days at the White House. But when Waco happened, she said, “that’s when I first knew that Vince was falling apart.”
Foster was found shot to death in a Virginia park three months later.
Tripp said she was with the former deputy White House counsel when the news of the Waco assault broke on television.
“A special bulletin came on showing the atrocity at Waco and the children. And his face, his whole body slumped, and his face turned white, and he was absolutely crushed knowing – knowing the part he had played.”
“And he had played the part at Mrs. Clinton’s direction,” charged Tripp.
Tripp was stunned by the contrast between Foster’s heartfelt emotion at the Waco tragedy and what she observed from Mrs. Clinton.
“Her reaction, on the other hand, was heartless,” Tripp told King, adding, “I can only tell you what I saw.””

“Linda Tripp: Hillary Knew About Monica

Saying that Hillary Clinton’s book “can’t be allowed to go unchallenged,” Sexgate whistle-blower Linda Tripp returned to the spotlight on Wednesday to challenge the former first lady’s claim that she didn’t know President Clinton was having an affair with Monica Lewinsky until a DNA test proved the allegation.
Tripp said that Mrs. Clinton undoubtedly knew about the illicit relationship much earlier because she had a top aide monitoring President Clinton’s private activities.”

“Asked what she thought of Mrs. Clinton’s book, Tripp told Hannity, “I was appalled and shocked.”
The former Clinton aide said she was shocked, “not in that she lied throughout the book,” which didn’t surprise her, “but [I was] shocked that it is so well done that the average person reading this book will believe it.”
Saying that a Hillary Clinton presidency can’t be allowed to happen, Tripp urged, “I think people with personal, factual information, firsthand information, need to speak out.”
“I’ve watched Hillary closely in action,” explained Tripp, who is in the midst of recovering from breast cancer. “I sat next to her for a great period of time. I know her culpability and that her fingers were literally in each scandal.”

“Statement on Travel Office Inquiry

WASHINGTON, June 22 — Following is the statement today by the independent counsel Robert W. Ray on his investigation of the firings at the White House travel office in 1993:

The office of the independent counsel has concluded an investigation commonly known as the travel office matter. This matter concerned allegations that David Watkins, former assistant to the president for management and administration, and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton made false statements in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1001, committed perjury in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1621, or obstructed justice in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1503, in connection with their statements and testimony concerning the May 19, 1993, firing of seven employees of the White House travel office. Independent counsel has concluded that the evidence was insufficient to prove that Mr. Watkins or Mrs. Clinton made any knowingly false statements, committed perjury or obstructed justice in this matter.”

“In contrast to the cooperation received from the White House in the F.B.I. files investigation, concluded in March of this year, this office experienced substantial resistance in its efforts to obtain relevant evidence in the travel office matter.

For example, the White House asserted unfounded privileges that were later rejected in court.

White House officials also conducted inadequate searches for documents and failed to make timely production of documents, including relevant e-mails, in their possession.”

From the Final Report of the Independent Counsel Robert Ray January 5, 2001.

Appendix 3 – White House’s non compliance with subpoena requests for electronically maintained documents.

“I. INTRODUCTION

As of the date of the filing of this Final Report, the White House has failed to produce all documents to which this Office is entitled. Grand juries in the Eastern District of Arkansas and the District of Columbia between March 4, 1994 and December 10, 1998 issued 216 subpoenas to the White House and its affiliates, which required the search of records responsive to those
subpoenas, including all electronic records and e-mails. The Independent Counsel first learned from news accounts in February 2000 that the White House may not have conducted complete searches of records within its custody. It was not until several months later that this Office fully realized the scope of the White House’s lack of compliance with lawfully issued subpoenas.

II. THE INDEPENDENT COUNSEL LEARNED IN FEBRUARY 2000
THAT ELECTRONIC RECORDS FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE
ADMINISTRATION MAY NOT HAVE BEEN SEARCHED
IN COMPLIANCE WITH LAWFULLY ISSUED SUBPOENAS.

The Washington Times published a story on February 15, 2000 that first alerted the public and the Independent Counsel that, due to a glitch in the White House’s computer server, over 100,000 e-mails were never searched in response to subpoenas. The Independent Counsel, as well as several Congressional investigations issued these subpoenas to the White House. The Washington Times article reported that Northrop Grumman Corporation (“NGC”) contractors
working at the White House discovered that one of the four White House Lotus Notes e-mail servers handling the e-mail for about 500 computer users had been mislabeled, preventing these e-mails from being properly managed.1 The contractors first discovered the problem in May 1998 and determined that it affected servers dating back to August 1996.2 The problem was not
fixed until November 1998 according to the article.3

The White House Counsel sent a letter to the Independent Counsel on March 15, 2000 detailing the problems with its computer system and its failure to capture certain incoming e-mails for certain periods of time.4 These records had not been reconstructed, and therefore, White House Counsel Beth Nolan was unable to determine whether any responsive documents to grand jury subpoenas had been affected.5 The White House Counsel recently revealed on October 30, 2000 that “incoming e-mail” could include any e-mail not a part of the Executive
Office of the President’s (“EOP”) Automated Records Management System (“ARMS”), such as the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, the various units which report to the White House Military Office, the White House Access and Visitor Entry System (“WAVES”), any user of the All-in-One system, and the Quorum system.6

This Office initiated an investigation as a result of the White House’s failure to notify this Office of the problems with its computer system and its inability to certify that all responsive documents to lawfully issued grand jury subpoenas have been produced. The investigation continues at the time of the filing of this Final Report. However, this Office has determined that the White House’s failure to search all records within its care, custody, and control, in response
to lawfully issued subpoenas, could be broken down into seven categories of records:

1. Failure to search reconstructed e-mail for the time period of January 1993 through June 1994;
2. Failure to search incoming e-mails to 526 users for the time period of August
1996 through November 1998;
3. Failure to search incoming e-mails of approximately 200 users for the time period of November 1998 through May 1999;
4. Failure to search over 600 backup tapes of former employees’ hard drives;
5. Failure to search incoming e-mail from the Office of the U.S. Trade
Representative, White House Military Office, WAVES system, and any user of
the All-in-One system;
6. Failure to search a correspondence database system known as Quorum; and
7. Failure to search the internal e-mail system in the Executive Residence.”

From the House Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy May 14, 2015.

“Benghazi Committee Releases Letter on State Department Compliance Failure, Clinton

May 14, 2015
Press Release

Washington, DC—Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy today sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry on the Department’s failure to produce responsive emails and records for top State officials more than a half-year after they were first requested.

“Secretary Clinton is insistent she will appear once and only once before the Select Committee,” said Gowdy, R-S.C. “The Committee must be equally insistent that her appearance is thorough and fully productive. This requires the record to be complete so the Members can effectively base their questions on documents and the Secretary can base her answers on those same documents.

“Since last fall, the Committee has consistently said it would talk to Secretary Clinton about Libya and Benghazi within 30 days of the public record being complete. To date, the State Department has not produced one single piece of paper responsive to the Committee’s request for records from the former Secretary’s leadership team.”

Gowdy noted the Benghazi Committee originally requested all Libya- and Benghazi-related documents from the leadership team of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton back in November 2014. He also noted the Committee subpoenaed the same records in March 2015, but as of mid-May, State has failed to produce a single email.

“The pace of State Department document production has become an impediment to the progress of the Committee,” Gowdy said. “Secretary Kerry promised in previous House testimony swift action when it came to producing Department documents, now it is time for his Department to explain why they have failed to keep his word.”

Gowdy further pointed to the former Secretary’s claim she had emailed her staff in a bid to meet record keeping requirements as part of the unusual email arrangement she had with herself.

“The Committee needs these emails to have some sense of the completeness of Secretary Clinton’s self-selected public record and to formulate substantive questions for her on Benghazi,” Gowdy said. “I have no interest in prolonging the time before she appears before the Committee, but I do have an interest in assuring the Committee has access to all the facts.”

Gowdy pointed to the Committee’s record in its determined pursuit to build the most comprehensive account on Benghazi. That includes becoming the first congressional committee to gain access to State Department Accountability Review Board internal documents—two years after a House committee originally subpoenaed the documents; receipt of 15,000 pages of new Benghazi documents never before given to Congress; getting access to 25,000 pages of Benghazi documents with fewer redactions than when they were first given to Congress; and becoming the first and only congressional committee to uncover Secretary Clinton’s exclusive use of private emails to conduct official public business.

The letter to Secretary Kerry can be found at the link.”

Trey Gowdy and the Select Committee on Benghazi released an update on May 8, 2015.

“Another substantial obstacle to the development of a full and complete record of the facts relating to Benghazi has been the unique arrangement that former Secretary of State Clinton had with herself. In August 2014, the State Department included in its production of documents eight emails to or from former Secretary Clinton. Some of these emails indicated that the Secretary used a private email account to communicate about official government business. Other emails gave no indication whether the email account used was private or a government account.

Since late fall, the Committee has consistently pressed the State Department for the former Secretary’s emails. On February 13, 2015, the State Department produced nearly 850 pages of roughly 300 emails to and from the former Secretary pertaining to Benghazi. The production was significant in that every one of the emails produced came from Secretary Clinton’s private email account.”

“The fact that the Secretary exclusively used and maintained a private email server, leaving her with sole and unfettered access to the complete universe of her emails, raises a number of transparency and accountability issues. The fact that the Secretary’s attorneys selfselected the emails to be shared with the State Department raises numerous questions about the completeness of the production of Secretary Clinton’s emails to the Committee, as well as more generally in response to other oversight inquiries by the House with which the Committee has been charged. These questions, which have been raised solely due to the actions of the former Secretary, necessitate a third-party review of the server to ensure that all responsive documents have been produced to the Committee.

That is why in an April 23, 2015 letter to the former Secretary’s attorney, the Committee reiterated its request for her to turn over the server to a neutral, third party, such as an inspector general. The Committee will call Secretary Clinton to testify once it is satisfied that all the relevant information has been provided by both the State Department and her.”

I have to believe that Trey Gowdy has read the September 26, 1996 House

“INVESTIGATION OF THE WHITE HOUSE TRAVEL OFFICE FIRINGS AND RELATED MATTERS”.

If not he certainly should and so should you.

Here are just a few exerpts.

“It is clear that once the ‘‘official’’ story was made public, any movement toward the truth brought the threat of damaging legal and political ramifications that the Clinton White House could not afford to risk.

The extensive documentary record constructed over the past year has dismantled the White House cover story.

The committee sought records of meetings, phone logs, Secret Service logs and White House residence records that were the only way to fill in the missing memories of countless witnesses. While the recollections of witnesses frequently have been implausibly flawed, the documentary record often tells a very different and far more complete story.

Finally, it is the President himself who ultimately must be held accountable for this persistent pattern of White House misinformation and misuse of executive power and executive privilege. Given the alarming turnover of key White House operatives over the past 31⁄2 years, only the President himself could have sustained such a pattern of misbehavior. Why has President Clinton tried to keep the true story from being told? A recurring question arises whether the President is above the law—whether the First Lady is above the law.

The discrepancies, vagaries and omissions between the ‘‘official’’ White House account of these matters and the factual record now properly falls within the scope of the criminal investigation by Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr, now known as ‘‘Travelgate.’’”
“MRS. CLINTON INSTRUCTED WHITE HOUSE STAFF ON THE HANDLING
OF FOSTER DOCUMENTS AND THE FOSTER NOTE FOUND ON JULY 26,
1993, AND SENIOR WHITE HOUSE STAFF COVERED UP THIS INFORMATION
AND KEPT IT FROM INVESTIGATORS

· Mrs. Clinton personally was involved in the discussions regarding the White House’s handling of documents in Vince
Foster’s office following his death. Mrs. Clinton made known her views that investigators should be denied ‘‘unfettered access’’ to Foster’s office prior to the search of the office on July 22, 1993.

· The White House withheld evidence subsequently discovered among the 2,000 pages over which President Clinton invoked
executive privilege, that senior White House aide Bill Burton spoke with Mrs. Clinton on the evening of Foster’s death (July 20, 1993).

· Mrs. Clinton directed that Mack McLarty and others not inform the President about the discovery of the Foster ‘‘suicide’’ note on July 26, 1993. This note essentially defended Foster’s and the White House’s actions in the Travel Office firings and Mrs. Clinton suggested that executive privilege research be done regarding the note.

· The White House’s delay in turning over the Foster note was due to senior staffers’ deference to Mrs. Clinton’s wishes.
Statements by Mack McLarty and David Gergen that the note was not immediately turned over because of the need to notify
Mrs. Foster and the President are not consistent with the evidence. No one called Mrs. Foster the evening the note was discovered and President Clinton was not told about the note’s existence until after Mrs. Clinton met with Bernard Nussbaum and Steve Neuwirth. Mr. Nussbaum and Mr. Neuwirth had been tasked with studying the executive privilege issue at 2:30 p.m. Susan Thomases and Bob Barnett also were in the residence that afternoon at approximately 3 p.m.

· The Foster note most likely was not a ‘‘suicide’’ note but rather a note in preparation for resigning or in the event that Foster was asked to resign or take the fall for the problems generated by the firings and related matters.43”
“WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS ENGAGED IN A PATTERN OF DELAY, DECEIT
AND OBSTRUCTION OVER THE COURSE OF 3 YEARS OF INVESTIGATIONS
INTO THE TRAVEL OFFICE AND MATTERS RELATED TO VINCENT
FOSTER’S DEATH

· The GAO’s investigation was delayed for months by document production delays. Ultimately GAO did not receive all
documents relevant to its inquiry including: the Vince Foster Travel Office file, the White House Management Review interview notes, documents related to the TRM efforts to obtain GSA contracts and the Watkins ‘‘soul cleansing’’ memo. A GAO representative noted that the level of cooperation that it received from the White House was not conducive to properly
conducting GAO’s work.47

· The ‘‘Watkins memo’’ was responsive to numerous document requests and was inappropriately withheld by David Watkins,
Matthew Moore and Patsy Thomasson. All three had hard copies and/or computer copies of the memo and were made aware
of the various document requests and subpoenas to which it would have been responsive.

· In responding to a Public Integrity request for documents regarding Harry Thomason, Matthew Moore wrote an April 4,
1994 memo to Neil Eggleston stating: ‘‘I know of no documents in my possession, or ever in my possession, responsive to the request.’’ This was false. The Watkins memo clearly was responsive to this request. At or around this time, Moore removed the Watkins memo from his computer and provided a disk copy to Watkins as he left the White House. However,
Moore maintained his own copy of the disk which included several previous drafts of the memo.

· The White House withheld documents from the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility including the
Vince Foster Travel Office file, the White House Management Review interview notes and the Watkins ‘‘soul cleansing
memo.’’ OPR Counsel Michael Shaheen found the White House’s lack of cooperation ‘‘unprecedented’’ in his 20 year
Government career.

· White House stonewalling forced the Public Integrity Section at the Justice Department to acknowledge it had no confidence that the White House had faithfully produced all documents ‘‘relating to the Thomason allegations.’’ While Section Chief Lee Radek noted that the ‘‘integrity of our review is entirely dependent upon securing all relevant documents,’’ he did not obtain all relevant documents: notably the complete Vince Foster Travel Office notebook and the Watkins ‘‘soul cleansing’’ memo, as well as more than 120 items over which the White House claimed executive privilege. The Justice Department quietly acceded to this inappropriate invocation of privilege.
One of the key items that it did not receive was a White House Counsel’s Office memo demonstrating that the Counsel’s office did believe there was a case to be made that Harry Thomason was a special Government employee.48

· Bernard Nussbaum obstructed the FBI investigation into the discovery of the Foster note as well as numerous other investigations, including congressional investigations, by failing to timely inform anyone in law enforcement, the White House, or Congress about the Vince Foster Travel Office notebook that he had secreted in Nussbaum’s office by July 22, 1993.

· An FBI investigation was ordered on July 28, 1993 by Philip Heymann, the day after the note was turned over to the Park
Police after the 30-hour delay in informing law enforcement authorities. Heymann instructed David Margolis to be ‘‘very
aggressive’’ in the investigation.

· Nussbaum failed to inform those tasked with overseeing document production to both the Justice Department and the
GAO that he was secreting a relevant document in his office. Nevertheless, once he informed Neil Eggleston in May 1994,
Eggleston also failed to turn over the documents to the Public Integrity Section in a timely and responsive manner.

· Neil Eggleston and Cliff Sloan, at Nussbaum’s direction, delayed the production of documents relating to the criminal investigation of Harry Thomason and Darnell Martens to the Public Integrity section and ultimately denied all such documents to GAO.

3 reasons for not choosing Hillary, Clinton another Obama, Constant failure, Scandal prone, Foundation raised $2 billion little has gone to helping poor people, Vince Foster death

3 reasons for not choosing Hillary, Clinton another Obama, Constant failure, Scandal prone, Foundation raised $2 billion little has gone to helping poor people, Vince Foster death

“The Clintons created the Clinton Foundation, a charitable organization to do good deeds around the world. The foundation had raised almost $2 billion by the end of 2014, according to foundation officials over the years. But, remarkably, little of that has gone to helping poor people. Much of the fund has been used to pay salaries and the transportation expenses of employees.”…Diana Furchtgott-Roth

“There has been a very active coverup by the FBI and the Justice Department. It’s very unlikely that he committed suicide. I’ve never written that he was murdered, but it’s hard to see it otherwise,”…Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, Sunday Telegraph, on Vince Foster death

“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patroits to prevent its ruin”…Samuel Adams, 1776

 

 

The fact that the Democrats would even consider Hillary Clinton for president lends credence to this statement:

“the Democratic Party overlooked the ethical red flags and made a pact with Mr. Clinton that was the equivalent of a pact with the devil. And he delivered. With Mr. Clinton at the controls, the party won the White House twice. But in the process it lost its bearings and maybe even its soul.”…Bob Herbert, NY Times February 26, 2001

From Market Watch May 6, 2015.

“Opinion: 3 reasons Democrats should find someone other than Hillary”

“Clinton should not be the Democrat nominee for president for at least three reasons. She fails to articulate an improvement on President Obama’s domestic- and foreign-policy agenda. She did a poor job as a public servant, including as secretary of state. Her Clinton Foundation is facing ethical questions more serious than those that resulted in the conviction of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell.”

“Clinton Would Be Another Obama. While Obama has retained a reservoir of personal popularity, his policies have not. From the environment to health care, from defense to law enforcement, Obama’s policies are not popular with the American public.

To succeed in the general election, the Democratic nominee should be able to articulate how new ideas can improve on unpopular policies of the Obama administration. So far, Clinton has not repudiated any of Obama’s policies. Reasonable voters would conclude that a Clinton presidency would be more of the same.”

“Obama’s policy failures are not merely matters of public perception, but matters of economic reality as measured by his own administration. President Obama’s policies have resulted in slow economic growth and a chaotic web of foreign policy. We all know the data. The economy is growing at just over 2%. The first quarter of 2015 will likely show a shrinkage in gross domestic product. The unemployment rate is at a low 5.5% because millions of prime-age workers have left the labor force, leaving participation rates at 1978 levels. New employment data will be released on Friday that will indicate how the economy performed in April, the first month of the second quarter.

Young Americans, often known as millennials, are bearing the brunt of the stagnant economy. Youth unemployment, at 10.5%, is more than twice the unemployment rate of those age 25 and up, at 4.4%. If Clinton wants to attract large numbers of millennials, she needs to explain how her policies will be both different from Obama’s and helpful to young people. That explanation has not been forthcoming.”

“Clinton’s public career has been marked by a remarkable lack of achievement in office. While her husband occupied the White House, she headed up a failed task force on health care that was rebuked for holding private meetings. As First Lady, she careened from scandal to scandal: Travelgate, Whitewater and the suicide of Vince Foster. President Bill Clinton was tarred by his affair with Monica Lewinsky, impeachment and the series of pardons he gave to the politically well-connected as the Clintons left the White House.

While her husband was still in the White House, Clinton was elected senator from New York, a state where she had never lived or worked. In the U.S. Senate, she had an unmemorable career.”

“In 2009, President Obama magnanimously nominated Clinton to be secretary of state. Four years later, America’s stature in the world was much diminished. Clinton failed to adequately answer questions about the death of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens in Benghazi in September 2012, two months before the presidential election. She did not explain the official White House line on TV that the attack on the Benghazi consulate was caused by a video. Was the terrorist attack disguised in order to achieve victory in November 2012?

Clinton kept her State Department email correspondence on a private server in her home with a personal email address, even though State Department policy was to preserve official records. Although congressional committees requested copies of emails relating to Benghazi, she apparently erased the server without giving them any information.”

“Clinton Is Associated With Unending Scandals. Clinton’s exposure to scandal did not end with her term as secretary of state. It continued afterward.

The Clintons created the Clinton Foundation, a charitable organization to do good deeds around the world. The foundation had raised almost $2 billion by the end of 2014, according to foundation officials over the years. But, remarkably, little of that has gone to helping poor people. Much of the fund has been used to pay salaries and the transportation expenses of employees.

According to an analysis of 10 years of foundation donations by McClatchy, 40% of top donors are based overseas. They gave money while Clinton was secretary of state. Canadian mining executives Ian Telfer and Frank Giustra gave millions to the foundation, while the U.S. government was reviewing the sale of a uranium mine to the Russians. With Clinton on the committee, the Russians got their mine.”

Speaking of scandals.

From NewsMax January 22, 1997 .

“Investigative Reporters Say Clinton Being Protected”

“If you’re holding your breath waiting for special prosecutor Kenneth Starr to recommend indictments against Bill and Hillary Clinton over the Whitewater affair, go ahead and exhale.

That’s the opinion of investigative reporters Christopher Ruddy and Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, who say that the attorney appointed by the Justice Department is too much of a Washington insider to bring charges against a president. Both men spoke before an enthusiastic crowd of about 400 people at Lakeview Lounge, west of Greensburg, Tuesday evening. The evening was arranged by the Westmoreland County Republican Committee and WRRK-FM radio host Jim Quinn.

The two reporters have written extensively on the scandals of the Clinton administration, including Whitewater and the death of White House Deputy Counsel Vince Foster. Ruddy’s stories have frequently appeared in the Tribune-Review. He is a former reporter for the New York Post.

Evans-Pritchard, Washington bureau chief for the London Sunday Telegraph, is also no stranger to readers of the Tribune-Review. Last night, Ruddy, Evans-Pritchard and Quinn narrated a story about multiple coverups, witness intimidation and corrupt political and judicial systems, all aimed at protecting Clinton and his friends.

All three received standing ovations before and after they spoke. “Truth interests me,” explained Jim Shupe of Jeannette as he waited with friends for Ruddy and Evans-Pritchard to speak. Shupe and others in the capacity crowd said the truth is being revealed by a very select portion of the national news media. He said the two reporters and Quinn’s radio show “(are) a good source of information.””

“If Clinton campaign strategist James Carville continues to take on Starr, that’s proof no indictments will come and the liberal attacks will only serve to bolster Starr’s conservative support, Ruddy suggested. A key to Whitewater, Ruddy said, is the death of Foster. “The government knows this is a problem and they know the Foster death is the atomic bomb of the Whitewater case. We have basically proven there was a coverup in this case … and we can’t depend on (any government agency) to investigate it.”

Evans-Pritchard agreed. “There has been a very active coverup by the FBI and the Justice Department. It’s very unlikely that he committed suicide. I’ve never written that he was murdered, but it’s hard to see it otherwise,” he said.”
