Democratic Insider: Hillary Unfit for President
An upcoming book by a longtime Democratic insider asserts that Sen. Hillary Clinton is ethically unfit to hold public office. The author of the book is Jerry Zeifman, who was counsel to the House Judiciary Committee for 17 years. He was chief counsel to the committee during the Watergate episode, a role he chronicled in an earlier book, Without Honor: The Crimes of Camelot and the Impeachment of President Nixon.
Hillary was a committee staffer at the time. And Zeifmans new book Hillarys Pursuit of Power is based in large part on his personal experiences with Hillary.
A press release about the book states: This book describes and documents unethical practices of Senator Hillary Clinton . . .
In 1974, [Zeifman] had supervisory authority of a staff that included Hillary Rodham, who was then engaged in a variety of self-serving unethical practices in violation of House rules.
In 1998, as consultant to a member of the Judiciary Committee that impeached President Clinton, he gained extensive personal insights into the unethical practices of Hillary Clinton in her White House west wing office.
A lifelong Democrat, Jerry Zeifman has concluded that Hillary Clinton is ethically unfit to be either a senator or president and if she were to become President, the last vestige of the traditional moral authority of the party of Roosevelt, Truman and Johnson will be destroyed.
Zeifman provided more details about his dealings with Hillary in a letter he wrote to the New York Post in August 1999. It read in part:
In December 1974, as general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, I made a personal evaluation of Hillary Rodham (now Mrs. Clinton), a member of the staff we had gathered for our impeachment inquiry on President Richard Nixon. I decided that I could not recommend her for any future position of public or private trust.
Why? Hillary's main duty on our staff has been described by her authorized biographer as establishing the legal procedures to be followed in the course of the inquiry and impeachment. A number of the procedures she recommended were ethically flawed.
And I also concluded that she had violated House and committee rules by disclosing confidential information to unauthorized persons
During my tenure with the House Judiciary Committee, I had supervisory authority over several hundred staff members. With the exception of Ms. Rodham, [special counsel John] Doar and [senior associate special counsel Bernard] Nussbaum, I recommended all of them for future positions of public and private trust.
Lyndon Johnson had morals????
Not if he does continue to support the Dems if he wins as he has stated.
I agree that would be extremely bad, but at least the soldiers wouldn't have to wake up next to it every day.
You got that right!! I'm wondering when he had his heart by-pass surgery if he was without oxygen too long? No one in his position should ever let themselves act as bad as he did on t.v. It proves he is crazy!!
New York, Haiti, Massachusetts. It's the way those people in those countries do things.
We've come a long ways since such times, eh?
Zeifman is really at odds with the modern democrat party. As they describe W's actions as illegal and lies, surely Truman and FDR would not be moral stalwarts - but war criminals. Truman for bombing innocents in his ordering the use of nuclear weapons, and FDR for his firebombing of citizens in Dresden and for the imprisonment of innocent Japanese-Americans.
If she tries and loses her bid as the Dem. nominee, she'll abandon the Senate in a heartbeat. She is only using it as a platform for the Presidency. Once she realizes that her lifelong dream is gone, she'll go on to pursuing her goal of changing this country into her idea of America and making mega-bucks.
I'm not normally a believer in the Devil but Hitlery could convince me!
LOL jaycee, I think YOU've got it right!!
bump for when I get rid of a house full of NY liberal company :(
Zeifman has been trying to get this info out for some time. He is part of the old Democrat party, not the new post '68 party. Nobody would take him seriously. Glad he wrote a book to document this stuff.
I have read about this in numerous other books on the PIAPS and I am pleased to see he is speaking out himself. This woman really should be behind bars and that is not just a partisan statement. Anyone who actually researches Hillary Clinton knows this.
Just the Travelgate incident should have been enough to generate an FBI investigation, let alone all of the confidential FBI files she had in the White House (somewhere over 1000 if memory serves).
BOIL AND BUBBLE
are starting to
May the fitting truth come ragingly to the public's conscioiusness before voting day.
My father worked on the Humphrey for president campaign. He and my mother are both dems but they now admit they are lost in the wilderness. I think the parties dumping of Leiberman did it for them
We can only hope more of them have had their eyes opened by that.
