In case you didn’t know or had forgotten, here’s a little refresher on Hitlery’s involvement in Watergate. She was just a 27 year old lawyer at the time, but already had much higher ambitions, and even then, the ends justified the means.
The story is based on statements by Jerry Zeifman, a Democrat, who was a counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee. Zeifman published a book in 2006 titled Hillary’s Pursuit of Power. On his website, which is no longer on the Internet, Zeifman said “Hillary Clinton is ethically unfit to be either a Senator or President–and if she were to become President, the last vestiges of the traditional moral authority of the party of Roosevelt, Truman and Johnson will be destroyed.”
He said that he supervised then Hillary Rodham who got a job working on the investigation of the Watergate scandal, which eventually brought Richard Nixon’s presidency to an end through resignation. She got this job at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair.
Zeifman said that during her work on the investigation of the Watergate scandal, Hillary Rodham “engaged in a variety of self-serving unethical practices in violation of House rules.” She couldn’t do it by herself, and Zeifman said she was one of several individuals, including Marshall, special counsel John Doar and senior associate special counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum, who engaged in a seemingly implausible scheme to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation.
Why would they want to do that? Because, according to Zeifman, they feared putting Watergate break-in mastermind E. Howard Hunt on the stand to be cross-examined by counsel to the president. Hunt supposedly had the goods on nefarious activities in the Kennedy Administration that would have made Watergate look like a day at the beach… including Kennedy’s purported complicity in the attempted assassination of Fidel Castro.
Zeifman says, he told Hillary about the case of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, who faced an impeachment attempt in 1970.
He told her “As soon as the impeachment resolutions were introduced by then-House Minority Leader Gerald Ford, and they were referred to the House Judiciary Committee, the first thing Douglas did was hire himself a lawyer,” Zeifman said.
The Judiciary Committee allowed Douglas to keep counsel, thus establishing the precedent. Zeifman says he told Hillary that all the documents establishing this fact were in the Judiciary Committee’s public files.
Hillary then proceeded to write a legal brief arguing there was no precedent for the right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding … as if the Douglas case had never occurred. “She then removed all the Douglas files to the offices where she was located, which at that time was secured and inaccessible to the public,” Zeifman said.
The brief was so fraudulent and ridiculous, Zeifman believes Hillary would have been disbarred if she had submitted it to a judge.
In 1974 a young lawyer, John Labovitz, who shared an office with Clinton came to him to apologize that he and Clinton had lied to him. He, is quoted as saying that he was dismayed with “…her erroneous legal opinions and efforts to deny Nixon representation by counsel, as well as an unwillingness to investigate Nixon.”
In 1998 Zeifman was a consultant to a member of the Judiciary Committee that impeached President Bill Clinton said he “gained extensive personal insights into the unethical practices of Hillary Clinton in her White House ‘West Wing’ office.”
Zeifman said he regrets that when he terminated Clinton from the Nixon impeachment staff he did not report her unethical practices to the appropriate bar association.
Even as far back as the 70s, she was involved in cover up, and to date nothing has changed.
According to Clinton friend and strategist, Dick Morris, she flunked the bar exam and if he’s right, she should never have gotten this far into a legal career, and certainly not to the position of a senator, secretary of state, or president. There is not one iota of moral fiber in her body.
Zeifman doesn’t regret his decision near as much as the rest of the country does. Had he acted, the results in Benghazi could have been completely different. Perhaps it might not have happened.
