EXCERPT FROM --- HOUSE OF CARDS
House Of Cards
What do Cher, a Hollywood con man, a political rising star and an audacious felon have in common? Together they gave Bill and Hillary Clinton a night they'll never forget -- no matter how hard they may try
By April Witt Sunday, October 9, 2005; Page W10
The caller lied easily. He'd had practice. It was Raymond Reggie, a New Orleans businessman and Democratic activist who happened to be Sen. Edward Kennedy's brother-in-law. He also happened to be in a lot of trouble.

Special Note: for those of you who want to just sit there and whine and say, "Oh, no, see I told you, nothing is going to ever happen to the Clintons," we have a special thread just for you --- THE OFFICIAL NOTHING IS EVER GOING TO HAPPEN TO THE CLINTON THREAD. Please go there and complain. The rest of us are going to try to do something meaningful.
April Witt told Peter that the Clintons were not going to like the story. To use Clintonesque language, that appears to be not entirely accurate, depending on the meaning of the word accurate.
The Pajamahadeen has an opportunity here. This story has been ignored for many months as the MSM pretended there was no civil trial looming on the horizon for 2006 and that Hillary Clinton was not up to her eyeballs in the largest campaign finance fraud on record. The story, despite being written by April Witt while wearing her official gold-laced Clinton kneepads, puts the story back into the public discussion. This was not on a little blog somewhere that has a few hundred readers, this was 8,000 words in the WASHINGTON POST.
If you have a question to ask Peter, please put your question in red so that he can easily see it on the thread.. For those who don't know, he is krucader_bravepages_com.
It is time to do some deconstruction of this so-called piece of investigative journalism.
As soon as I hit the button, I realized I did not put it in breaking news. Please correct that. Thanks.
Thanks Doug. BTTT!
Pinging the troops-
Doug, are you keeping a ping list for this, or is there going to be a keyword link on the main Forum page?
No ping list. If someone wants to take on that responsiblity, please do so. The keyword should be HILLARY.
Nobody warned Rosen that his new partners had such colorful pasts, he said. To avoid embarrassing liaisons, Rosen said, Hillary Clinton's Senate campaign staff submitted a donor's name to a three-member vetting committee of high-ranking campaign officials. The campaign also forwarded the name to the Washington law firm of Ryan, Phillips, Utrecht & MacKinnon to be further researched, he said. Donors preparing to host an event -- and emblazon their name on the invitations -- received the closest scrutiny, Rosen said.
Tonken and Paul were vetted and passed, Rosen said. The instructions he received regarding Paul, he said, were: "No remarkable information found. Proceed."
Oh, really? I asked a FReeper, who had access to a university computer, to do a Lexis-Nexis search for info on Peter's court case in Miami in the Castro deal. I had the court case FReepmailed back to me in a very short time. I guess the lesson to be learned is that you don't need to go to a lawfirm to vet someone --- JUST GO ASK SOMEONE FROM FREEREPUBLIC FOR HELP AND SAVE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN LEGAL FEES!
Then we got him impeached!
Can you make a keyword link for this on the main Forum page? keyword HILLARY .
where's blurblogger and his list?
FR is the ultimate information vetting tool.
Thanks for the ping!
Way to go Doug! I think the LIEberals must be wetting themselves about now.
DOH! It's already there- nevermind!
Doh. Yes, Blurblogger has the list. Anyone wishing to be added, sent a not to him.
Can you add me to the list for this topic?
Anyone wanting to be added to Blurblogger's PETER PAUL AND HILLARY ping list, either FReepmail him or reply to him on this thread.
I cannot believe people were expecting something different than a circling of the wagons around the Clintons from the WP.
