Skip to comments.'SOCKS DOCS' JURY GRILLS CLINTON CRONY
Posted on 01/11/2005 11:41:41 PM PST by kattracks
Former Clinton White House Mr. Fix-It Bruce Lindsey emerged tight-lipped yesterday after testifying before a federal grand jury probing whether top-secret documents were illegally removed from the National Archives.
The grand jury probe, reported exclusively in The Post Tuesday, is digging into why another former Bill Clinton aide, Sandy Berger, sneaked the national security documents out of the Archives possibly in his socks.
Lindsey denied any inside knowledge about Berger's sticky fingers.
"All I know is what he [Berger] said. He made a public statement," said Lindsey, Clinton's deputy White House counsel, after testifying under oath yesterday.
Berger admits walking off with 40 to 50 top-secret documents from the archives, but claims it was an "honest mistake" while vetting documents for the 9/11 commission.
Berger has admitted destroying some documents he says by mistake.
Lindsey declined comment on what he told the grand jury, but denied reports that he met with Berger in New York for crisis control as the scandal erupted last summer.
Among the documents Berger lifted were multiple drafts of a report assessing the 2000 millennium threat that is said to conclude that only luck prevented a terrorist attack then.
That conflicts with Berger's sworn testimony to the commission he claimed "we thwarted" millennium attacks by being vigilant, not lucky.

The plot thickens.
The Post also reports that Sandy the Burglar hasn't been called before the grand jury yet.
Kind of makes a person go hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
we would have irate Democrats demanding a special prosecutor and demanding Senate hearings as well as resignations from anybody and everybody.....
It does show just how entitled the Democrat party feels it is....to be able to walk in, steal documents, hide them in your pants or your socks, and then claim it was just a mistake, oh well....
Sounds as though dear Brucey is in a whole lot of trouble and is NOT going to cover for Mr. Sticky socks.
Sandy Pants is up to eye balls in trouble
The real question is ... who will he take down with him ??
If Bruce is "stoney faced",he knows there's blood in the water.
This is too cool! We are actually doing something about the theft!
Makes me go "blech."
I agree ... I'd be surprised to see the Clinton's take a hit
But they are going have a difficult time spinning this all
This is turning out to be a VERY interesting week, and its only Wednesday!
*L* .. I hear ya ... my head is spinning just trying to keep up with it all
Boy, if they keep this up, they're gonna have to put in traffic control cops near the cannon at Ft. Marcy Park.
I guess Brucie decided not to lie about this GJ testimony, as he did once before, and got caught.
Lindsey also, if I remember. Spun a bunch of stuff about how the prosecutors were interested in lurid sex details and stuff.
The commission report makes clear that Berger had a habit of writing candid notes in the margin of memos, sometimes flatly rejecting plans for action. (Berger) nixed a plan to capture Osama bin Laden with one word: "No."
Now did he do that in conference with Clinton? Course, Berger was the national security advisor, so we might assume he counseled Clinton against taking out OBL.
No matter...... 911 happened thanks to these bozos.
I'm convinced that after 911, Berger was compelled to do whatever was necessary to hide, destroy, or pilfer damaging evidence of Berger's incompetence....and/or perhaps his and Clinton's complicity in corrupting US national security.
Oh, oh, oh! I just remembered something! When Clinton testified before the 9/11 Commision, he wasn't alone! He had two people with him: Berger and Lindsey!
If they keep on ignoring/whitewashing crime by the elite long enough, we'll all be able to forget about filing our tax returns etc. There'll be no justification for enforcing laws on anyone.
