Trey Gowdy must read House investigation of White House travel office Sept. 26, 1996, Bill Hillary Clinton obstruction of Justice, Vince Foster death, Benghazi email coverups history repeat, Persistent pattern of misinformation misuse of executive power and executive privilege

“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

“By July 1993, the Clintons and their associates had established
a pattern of concealment with respect to the Clintons’ involvement
with Whitewater and the Madison S&L. Because of the complexity
of the allegations of misdeeds involving these institutions, documents
and files are critical to any inquiries into the matter. Yet,
at every important turn, crucial files and documents ‘‘disappeared’’
or were withheld from scrutiny whenever questions were raised.…Senate Whitewater report June 13, 1996

“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


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


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 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”

· 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.

    If you think liberal governance did wonders for Detroit, just take a look at what’s happening in Chicago.

    This is going to get ugly, friends.
    Chicago’s race to the bottom accelerates: Credit downgraded to ‘junk’ status
    The new Detroit.

    Some Gave NONE…but wanted all…..

  4. Here it is “FREE STUFF”
    Go get it, while you can…………

    Class war at its best.

    The folks who are getting the FREE STUFF don’t like
    The folks who are paying for the FREE STUFF, because
    The folks who are paying for the FREE STUFF can no longer
    Afford to pay for both the FREE STUFF and their own stuff.

    And the folks who are paying for the FREE STUFF
    Want the FREE STUFF to stop.

    And the folks who are getting the FREE STUFF want even more FREE STUFF on top of the FREE STUFF they are already getting!

    Now… The people who are forcing the people who pay
    For the FREE STUFF have told the people who are RECEIVING
    The FREE STUFF that the people who are PAYING for the
    FREE STUFF are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

    So… The people who are GETTING the FREE STUFF have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the FREE STUFF by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their FREE STUFF and giving them the FREE STUFF in the first place.

    We have let the FREE STUFF giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting FREE STUFF than paying for the FREE STUFF.

    Now understand this.

    All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere

    Between 200 and 250 years after being founded.

    The reason?

    The voters figured out they could vote themselves money
    From the treasury by electing people who promised to give
    Them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.

    The United States officially became a Republic in 1776 ,
    238 years ago.

    The number of people now getting FREE STUFF
    outnumber the people paying for the FREE STUFF.

    Failure to change that spells the end of the United States
    As we know it.

    “How does a company which reveals its business is so disastrous it not only has to withdraw revenue and volume guidance “due to uncertainty around energy-related markets, F/X impact and U.S. fuel price” and says that:

    Key US Economic Indicators Have Deteriorated Since Late ‘14

    Hence the logic “If you can’t fight them”…..JOIN THEM! Then claw and beat your way to the head of the line,for the free stuff. If the entire population does this it would cause a TOTAL COLLAPSE of the Federal Government. NO PEOPLE EMPLOYED EQUALS NO INCOME FOR THE FED. SUCH AN ACTION WOULD SHUT DOWN THE FED,AND THERE WOULD BE HELL ON EARTH. PERHAPS THIS IS WHAT MUST HAPPEN TO WAKE UP THE MORONS WHO THINK UP IS DOWN.

    OFF TOPIC but important……..
    Californians still opposing vaccination of their kids ……… Those who oppose childhood vaccination,should be exempted from healthcare insurance coverage, and thus required to pay the entire cost when their offspring become ill. Many childhood illnesses were virtually eliminated,and now some of these illnesses are back BIG TIME just because of the NUMBSKULLS who oppose such vaccinations. So if their kids become infected let the NUMBSKULL parents pay the FIDDLER.

  9. citizenwells

    oldsailor, et al.
    Childhood vaccines are not all created equal.
    Some are indeed suspect and some are for non life threatening diseases.
    Each one should be approached as the lesser of evils.

  10. citizenwells

    I have done much reading on vaccines & fluoride (definitely not a life saving measure).
    Jury is still out on some of this.

  11. oldsailor82

    Just one more thought and I will depart. The thought is really a question. Just how the hell is putting Harriet Tubman’s face on a $20.00 bill going to change anything except the picture on the bill. Get what I mean? Sort of like shoveling manure AGAINST THE TIDE!

  12. oldsailor82

    ……….but in the late 30s all through the 40s and the 50s,having a LESSER OF THE EVILS was far better than having NOTHING. Sadly it took much longer for Jonas Salk to come up with POLIO vaccine,but look where polio is NOW. Yes there has been,and there still is issues surrounding some of the vaccines,but the issues were and still are because not every human being is alike with regard to both susceptibility,and treatability. It is entirely possible that out of every 100 children vaccinated with a specific vaccine that there will be a small percentage who are either affected adversely,or have no protection from the disease,simply because that child’s system is not like the other 90 percent. This has always been a problem……so I can sympathise with the parents of those kids, but at the same time I tender the question how are they ever going to progress without such vaccinations? Each child should be tested before inoculation. Some children could become deathly ill. The pre vaccination test has been around for decades. Scarlet fever, chicken pox,and a host of other illnesses was nearly stamped out but thanks to the ALIENS FROM THE SOUTH,and adverse parents many of the illnesses that were reduced significantly, or stamped out entirely are now back.and getting worse, including TUBERCULOSIS, which by the way is now almost an UNTREATABLE ILLNESS because it has become resistant to antibiotics……as has several types of staph infections,one of which is AUREAS. Yes there is JUSTIFIABLE QUESTION about the treatment of all illnesses, but if medical science simply SHUTS DOWN would we be better off, or WORSE OFF!

    My gut tells me the usurper arranged for this crash to influence the funding vote.

    These democrats already had their scripts ready before it happened, they all had their talking points ready, and the guy driving the train can’t remember anything. His picture can probably be found amongst the photos of the occupy crowd.

    What a horrible tragedy. And on top of it, we can hardly be surprised by this development.

    ….and NOW………
    …….we learn the character of the train engineer…..he has no character…..he is a HOMOSEXUAL,who is in a same sex marriage. While this should not detract from his alleged ability to operate the engine at the appropriate speeds,and in a safe manner,it does often translate to irresponsible behavior. In his homosexual fervor it is entirely possible that he was distracted with TEXTING a message to his QUEER LOVER and not paying attention to operating the engine,and thus either ignored,or missed certain signpost warning signals along the right of way. If this is proven to be the case then he should be prosecuted for 7 counts of reckless manslaughter, and destruction of property. Hopefully the NTSB will have a close look at Bostian’s cell phone usage. The story will be in the cell phone records. If the cell phone was in use at the moment of the roll over then it will be fairly clear that he was texting.

  16. Old sailor–you do know that most of the cases of measles and whooping cough were vaccinated children??

    On the subject of vaccination vs. non-vaccinated, I have 12 articles–all against vaccinating.

    Big Pharma is great at creating a boogie man–but any person can reason giving 40+ vaccines to a child before age 3 spells irresponsible in any language.
    I just read yesterday about several deaths and serious injuries in a country by vaccines to infants.

    The notion that the Founders consciously intended to design and select a lower standard of presidential eligibility (e.g., the Yemeni anchor baby option) when a higher standard existed (§ 212, de Vattel) strains credibility and plainly turns the intent of the Founders regarding insulation of the presidency from foreigners and foreign influence on its head.

  21. oldsailor82

    Bob Strauss………Re 3:24 AM
    Yes I believe there is now and for quite some time has been an ongoing assault upon the intent of the founders by the OVEREDUCATED WORDSMITHS, AND THE THOUGHT POLICE TO TWIST THE WORDS OF THE FOUNDERS INTO A MEANING WHICH IS DESIGNED TO MAKE THEIR WORDS QUESTIONABLE,AFTER WHICH THE WORDSMITHS THEN TRY TO MAKE EVERYBODY BELIEVE THAT THEIR WORDS ACTUALLY MEANT SOMETHING ELSE. Many Americans probably believe the TWISTED RATIONALE of the wordsmiths, because they simply don’t give a damn to begin with and/or have weak minds to supplement their attitudes……..BUT NOT ALL OF US ADHERE TO SUCH TWISTED BULLSHI#.

    ………..and with respect to 3:22 AM I reiterate……..NOT ALL OF US!

  22. oldsailor82

    Bob Strauss………Re 3:21 AM.
    ……..and once again your questions are exactly my own. At first I too BLINDLY absorbed everything GOWDY said and done, but as I thought about some of it I TOO began to see certain vague notions which were still largely in the shadows beginning to take shape and color. I have begun to believe that the warrior in shining armor upon the charging white stallion has somehow turned into a child upon a grey standing Shetland pony.

    I now seriously doubt that much of anything will result from the Oversight Committee Investigations. I will put it another way……… can positively prove that something is made of aluminum that should have been made from steel, but doing something positive about it is a cat of a far different color, simply because it involves people who simply will NOT DO ANYTHING about it. In the case of the investigations,once wrongdoing has been found and proven to the extent of PROBABLE CAUSE you must then rattle the cage of the DOJ to get their attention. Guess what they along with the entire judicial branch is corrupt and will not pay any attention, but lo and behold,when 20 million highly incensed, and armed CITIZENS overrun Washington DC,including the WHACKEY HOUSE, and do what is now needed things WILL CHANGE!

    ……….since we live on the surface of the earth, we are at the mercy of Mother Nature,and there is very little mankind can do to change mother nature’s behavior. Mankind is largely a virus,and mother nature is the victim. But she is not necessarily behaving the way she does because of MANKIND. I personally believe she is more affected by the movement of the earth’s crust which we call PLATE TECHTONICS…….EYE OPENING! It is what we learn after we already know it all …..that COUNTS.

    Jay Jay……….
    ……..if I read your words correctly, you are opposed to vaccination of children for ANYTHING. I guess that must remain your choice. I do agree that there are a lot of things happening with vaccinations which shouldn’t but I also hasten to add that such vaccinations are compounded by VARIABLES, which can directly affect the effectiveness of such vaccines, a few of which are MISTAKES made by humankind, both in the development,as well as the application of the vaccine,and the quality of the prevailing sterile conditions surrounding each. Both whooping cough and measles are largely AIRBORNE virus,and it is doubtful that a child being vaccinated for something else could contract either as a result of the vaccination.

  28. oldsailor82

    Jay Jay……..
    ……..I would hasten to add,and reiterate what I said yesterday. Some children who are vaccinated have systems which
    for some heretofore unknown reason will not react properly to such a vaccination…………but the percentage sounds very small. Do you think that we should just SHUT DOWN ALL MEDICAL SCIENCE,and vaccine development, because there has been an adverse reaction by a few recipients. I would say emphatically …NO. Instead I would strongly advise medical research to delve into the problem and make necessary corrections wherever necessary to make vaccination of children a more positive and meaningful venture. Look at how many people died from polio,and tuberculosis until Jonas Salk finally found the right strain to use in the polio vaccine. He had tried for years prior,and a lot of vaccinations of experimental serums failed. Yet he didn’t shut down he CONTINUED. Tuberculosis was a tougher nut to crack, but it was nearly eradicated in the US ….but now it is back and is now showing RESISTANCE to antibiotics……thanks to the way it was treated in the countries where the aliens we now have among us came from. According to a recent study published by a national medical publishing company tuberculosis is now once again rearing it’s ugly head,in places where it NEVER WAS in prior years.

    I am wondering how many of the panel at UM are LIBERALS. It would seem that their LIBERAL VIEWPOINTS might be effecting their judgment a tad. Many business newsletters are reflecting a much more serious condition, that is directly affecting our industrial production… of which is the Kiplinger Report. The EPA has set out new atmospheric standards which all manufacturers MUST COMPLY WITH by 2020, or face prosecution and or heavy fine. Their alleged standards cannot possibly be complied with in such a small span of time. The technology to bring TOTAL compliance DOESN’T EVEN YET EXIST, NOR IS SUCH TECHNOLOGY EVEN OFF THE DRAWING BOARDS YET,AND WILL BANKRUPT MANY COMPANIES WHO TRY TO COMPLY.

  30. oldsailor82

    ……….there is a DIRE NEED for the FED to REIN IN the EPA. The organization appears to be under the effects of some sort of drug,which makes them believe they are GOD himself. When the HIGHLY INCENSED,and ARMED CITIZENS begin to physically clean house, I would be one of the many who would be watching them take the broom to all such agencies,and cheering their accomplishment.

    Bye bye …….have a great day!
