Skip to comments.Former Boss: Hillary Fired for Lies, Unethical Behaviour from Congressional Job
Posted on 04/02/2008 8:51:28 PM PDT by T.L.Sink
Dan Calabrese's new column on Hillary Clinton's past may bring the curtain down on her political future. Calabrese interviewed Jerry Zeifman, the man who served as chief counsel to the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate hearings, has tried to tell the story of his former staffer's behaviour for years. Zeifman claims he fired Hillary for unethical behaviour and that she conspired to deny Richard Nixon counsel during the hearings. The now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary, says her history of lies and unethical behaviour goes back further - and much deeper - than anyone realizes. Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation - one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman's 17-year career. Why? "Because she was a liar," Zeifman said in an interview last week. "She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality." When informed that public evidence (Douglas impeachment files) showed a precedent for the right to counsel, SHE ABSCONDED WITH THE FILES TO ELIMINATE THE EVIDENCE.

Wow. Mothball the behemoth. It’s over.
I suppose Hillary will use the "it was just being sloppy" excuse, too!
I guess this means he won’t be getting a Christmas Card this year from the Clintons.
Jerry Zeifman: aka FBI File #716
P.S. Is there enough popcorn for this year?
As bad as this is, and it is, in time there will be something just as noteworthy about Obama...and then the dems will try to bring up the Keating 5 to muddy the waters on the conservative side.
Wish we could just put the election cycle off for a couple more years...groan..
WOW, great article. How come I don’t see this on cnnmsnbcfoxnews?
oh my. ping ping
“.....has tried to tell the story of his former staffer’s behaviour for years.”
I can believe it, but nobody WANTED to listen.
The Clinton’s had made themselves indispensable to the Leftist agenda early on, and were to have been the bridge into 21st Century Democratic Socialism. Their bridge collapsed when their scheme for consecutive Presidencies collapsed under the weight of the Clinton’s themselves. The electorate became tired of them. The electorate is still tired of the Clinton’s, and the two of them are busily contributing to the reason why.
So it stands to reason that NOW the time is right for Zeifman’s story to finally break out.
It won’t mean a damned thing.
You two read this one?
No wonder her and JJ McCain are such pals. Birds of a feather...
Time for this tagline again, I think...
This could prove to be a very interesting election cycle. Too bad our three main options are all liberals.
Americans are good at building things. Political parties are nothing by corporate constructions. If the current “two” aren’t providing what we need to restore and defend our Constitution, one or both will be replaced.
And it will happen so fast it will make the political and media establishments’ heads spin.
