WASHINGTON Billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife, formerly No. 1 on Bill Clinton's enemies list as the so-called "marionette" of the "vast right-wing conspiracy," met with the former president for two hours this week, offering to help him with his global initiative.
Scaife, who personally funded many of the investigations of the Clinton administration that led to the president's impeachment, last April formerly endorsed Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, a daily newspaper he owns. That endorsement came just before the Pennsylvania primary, which Hillary Clinton won, and just after Scaife met with her. Scaife's mind has been changing about the Clintons for some time, as WND previously reported.
There is little question that when then-first lady Hillary Clinton famously lashed out at foes as a "vast, right-wing conspiracy," Scaife was one of the people on her mind. It was Scaife, an heir to fortunes made in banking, oil and aluminum, who subsidized the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and underwrote countless conservative and Republican causes including "the Arkansas Project," specifically designed to expose Clinton scandals.
But that was then. This is now.

The Clintons NEVER do anything unless it is for political and/or monetary gain. And they stiff EVERYONE who is no longer useful to them (just ask Vince Foster for one)....so what are Bonnie and Clyde up to now? Has to be something...some form of personal gain for these carpetbagging criminals.
I guess in Mr. Scaife’s peculiar mind there is a statute of limitations on murder.
Obviously, Scaife has come to that point in his life where he realizes he was a hypocrite and he got caught. His immature reaction to being held accountable (by his wife), is that nothing matters and what if it did. In other words, all his moral arguements are gone. Now, if you were rich and morally adrift...to whom would you turn to for kindred company?
Ahhhhh, the Clintons.
So the real question is not Qui bono? but Quomodo bono?
It’s simple? Rove sent him to distract the Klintoon and make sure they don’t interve on nObamas behalf, lest they become the target of him again and again and again and derail and ambition Hillary has of a public or private life again?
He feared(s)a 'RAT win. He's hoping to buy himself some protection, that's all. What's that old saying about what you must make sure you do if you attempt to depose the king? Well he wasn't able to do it and has been looking over his shoulder ever since.
The same goes for Bill Richardson, et.al., when they double-crossed the Clintons and backed Obama. The Clintons will get even, and they know it.
