The Clintons Pass In The Night
The Hill ^ | 3/8/06 | Dick Morris

The Clintons pass in the night

Written in conjunction with Eileen McGann

Bill and Hillary Clinton are the first couple to appear simultaneously and independently on the national political stage. They are using their special circumstances as a convenient shield for one another, fulfilling, at once, Hillary’s dream of no accountability and Bill’s of being able to take both sides of an issue.

Did Hillary know that Bill was pardoning the FALN terrorists to help her win Puerto Rican votes in New York? Oh, she was opposed to the pardon.

Did Hillary find out that Bill was granting pardons to felons and drug dealers who had hired her brothers for six-figure fees to lobby her husband for pardons right under her nose? No way. In fact she was “saddened” at her brothers’ involvement.

And we all know that Hillary was “gasping for breath” when she first learned the truth about Monica Lewinsky.

And the former first lady was “bewildered” that members of the White House staff would treat her demands that they fire the travel-office staff as an order.

Bill has been out there criticizing the war while Hillary plays to the center by voting for it.

And now, this heavy-footed pas de deux straddles the issue of whether a Dubai company should run six American ports.

Are we truly to believe Hillary’s insistence last week that she knew nothing about Bill’s counseling of his friend and benefactor the crown prince of Dubai, Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, on the ports deal? Do Bill and Hillary Clinton ever speak to each other, or do they just attend funerals, fundraisers and Billy Graham crusades together for photo-ops?

Bill is, after all, a regular in Dubai. The crown prince — that is, the government — contributed to his presidential library and pays him $300,000 per speech. Recently, Yucaipa, an American company that has Bill Clinton as a “senior adviser” and pays him a percentage of its profits, formed a partnership with the Dubai Investment Group to form DIGL Inc., a company dedicated to managing the sheik’s personal investments.

No doubt Bill Clinton was brought in to cement this lucrative deal from which he — and therefore Hillary — will likely make millions. Neither Bill nor Hillary will disclose how much he is paid, but her Senate financial disclosure says that he will make “more than” $1,000. They also won’t say how much Dubai royalty gave to the Clinton library.

So when Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) broke the story that the administration had approved the Dubai ports deal and Bill Clinton started to defend it in public, are we to believe that Hillary did not know that the sheik had called him to ask his advice, and are we to believe that Bill’s defense of the deal was unrelated to his myriad financial ties to Dubai?

Hillary stands to gain millions in income from her husband’s Dubai connection. She knows he flies there very, very frequently. And she must realize that Bill is close to the Dubai royal family.

So why did she dump on the port deal? Likely to cover herself. If she were anything less than front and center against the Dubai port deal, she would vulnerable to criticism over Bill’s involvement with the Dubai royal family. So she held marathon press conferences denouncing the deal and professed not to realize her husband was defending the deal at the sheik’s request.

What’s really going on here is that Bill Clinton is trying to please his Arab patrons and business partners at the same time that Hillary Clinton is trying to capitalize on American stereotypes about Arab terrorists.

More important, she’s desperately trying to distract attention from the Dubai dollars that flow into her family checking account from Bill’s political and business dealings with the Dubai crown prince. What better way than to attack them?

We should insist that:

• Bill Clinton register as an agent of a foreign principal.

• The Clintons say how much he makes from Dubai.

• The Clinton library tell us how much Dubai royalty gave to the library.

• And Bill disclose, in the future, whenever he is speaking as an ex-president or as a paid public-relations flack.

Morris, a former political adviser to Sen. Trent Lott (R-Miss.) and President Bill Clinton, is the author of Condi vs. Hillary: The Next Great Presidential Race.

I'd add another requirement: If Dubai's so evil, the Toons should RETURN the money. ALL of it.

When is this going to be a headline on the evening news or the NYT? Bet you everything you own it would be front page news if Clinton were a (R).

At first glance I thought of the other meaning of "pass."

I wonder how long it will be before Morris is silenced by either being hired by Hillary for an extremely high sum of money, or someone finds him in Fort Marcy Park with a "Self inflicted gunshot wound" to the back of the head with a non-functioning firearm?

Knowing Morris, he'll be working for her again within the next year or so.

Yesterday was an odd number day, right? Ok then that means Little Dick Morris is WITH us. His next piece will be on an even number day and we will be with the rat.

And this bum thinks we don't know this.

The story is about the Clintons. They should return millions of dollars. That is the story.

"And we all know that Hillary was “gasping for breath”...

Actually she said "gulping"...

"I could hardly breathe. Gulping for air, I started crying and yelling at him, "What do you mean? What are you saying? Why did you lie to me?"

..which means she herself was lying about it. Who "gulps" for air? Gulp is when you are drowning, so this means she didn`t know what she was talking about, she made it up.

"William my love! *gulp* Is it true? *gulp* Did thou have an affair with thy maiden Monica? *Gulp gulp*! I cannot breath! *Gulp* *gulp* Tell me is is not true! I cannot *gulp* go on!"

There's another interesting angle. The Clintons are legally married yet physically not married. It's probably certain they have separate bank accounts and records. Yet, they obviously must still have joint assets and debts. Who is paying what bills and from what source is their joint income coming from?

We know she gets a senate salary. It's not that much in the big scheme of things. He gets all kinds of money from God knows where. Is some of that Dubai money finding its way into her accounts?

The problem is that income and outgo of the Clintons is probably so well hidden, so convoluted with false leads and trails, so protected with layers of accountants and lawyers, that undoubtedly even the Justice Department or the IRS could ever unravel the sources of the Corrupt Couple's millions which appear to be piling up like the gold of King Midas. Remember, as his wife, she's entitled to part of all his assets if they divorce. He must be paying her plenty to not seek one at this time while he's still on the gravy train.

For her part, a divorce now would be deadly for her presidential aspirations.

All this, of course, is sick, sick, sick. Most people don't look this deep into the Clinton "marriage". These two are con artists of the first rank. And they are surrounded by rank people who protect and enable them.

Since they are still legally married, there's no doubt in my mind that Her Heinous is benefitting directly or indirectly from Bill's lobbyist status with Dubai and other Arab states. Money is fungible.

The closer it gets to '08 the more you are right. If she had divorced him say, 2001, she might have had a better shot at the WH without the baggage of Bill.

I have always thought that the only way for her to get to the WH would be to divorce Slick Willy. But, I don't think there is anything she can do at this point.

I hope the woman running against Hillary makes this conflict-of-interest story a huge deal. This makes the Jack Abramoff thing look like a nothing story.

If Hillary doesn't know what her own husband is doing, how can she know what's going on in the state she is supposed to be representing?

Nothing has changed in the 30 years that I have been following the Clinton's political antics. It has always been married but separate.

The Clintons now engage exclusively in oral sex.

When they pass each other they say F*** you.

Quite true, but their arrangement takes on a new dimension today because she aims to be president of the most powerful country in the world and he aims to be.....who knows?

Therefore, the legal and financial aspects of this sham marriage have to be scrutinized in a whole new light today. The true sources of their personal fortunes, whether it be foreign powers or dubious characters like Soros, necessitate investigation so that the American public knows who these grifters are beholden to if or when they seize joint reins of power.

Hillary has no standing to ever mention "Jack Abramoff."

She has managed to make him look like a boy scout. She has managed to both silence herself on Abramoff and Dubai.
