Clinton's Fall Guy May Turn the Table - Peter Paul et al
Insight Magazine ^ | 10/16/03 | Paul Rodriguez

Posted on 10/16/2003 11:17:06 AM PDT by Paul Rodriguez

Peter F. Paul, the flamboyant Hollywood entrepreneur who says Hillary Rodham Clinton has hidden almost $2 million of in-kind contributions he made to her campaign in 2000, is back from Brazil and promising to raise a ruckus about the New York senator as he fights bizarre securities and bank-fraud charges on which he's been indicted.

Aaron Tonken, a political operative in Hollywood and a former protégé of Paul under indictment for a variety of alleged sharp deals with the rich and famous, also is promising to tell everything he knows about behind-the-scenes shenanigans of Clinton and many others.

Meanwhile, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the IRS have embarked on extensive civil and criminal probes involving a cast of Damon Runyon characters and securities, tax and bank frauds that appear to center on a now-bankrupt company called Stan Lee Media Inc. (SLM).

That company is in turn at the epicenter of charges brought against Stephen and Jonathan Gordon, Paul and at least two stockbrokers/advisers and alleged mob figures who helped to perpetrate government-alleged frauds that were used to finance political fund raising for Hillary and Bill Clinton.

Professionals at the Justice Department in Washington, along with prosecutors in the Eastern District of New York and the Western District of California (Los Angeles), also are pursuing ongoing investigations stemming from their probes of Paul, the Gordons and others.

At least that's what government officials tell Insight when asked about the status of this battery of criminal cases triggered by the Paul et al. indictments issued almost three years ago.

First a recap: Paul and the Gordons were alleged in the indictments to have bilked SLM, Merrill Lynch, U.S. Bank and others out of millions of dollars by floating checks on margin accounts holding SLM stocks for various personal perfidies, with which he says he financed the Clinton fund raising. According to prosecutors, as much as $25 million was stolen or otherwise looted.

This plus the very bad showing her and clinocchio made in California, Maryland Ha. and lots of other places means that the beast's dreams of the White House are over. She will NEVER run - unfortunately!

After endless "lame" investigations into the Klintoons campaign contributions (al beit a corrupt Janet Reno JD), I just don't see how this is going to change anything. Paul, Gordon, et al will be so slimed by the remaining Klinton machine and the media, nobody will believe they have any credibility. But hey! I'd love to be totally wrong here.

He should also give a copy of whatever documents he has to back up his account, under seal, to several close friends, with instructions to deliver the docments to the Feds and several well-known conservative notables in the event he should suddenly die or disappear for any reason.

Great investigative work, Paul. You and Sperry are tops, in my book. From your article:

"For example, copies of faxes identified as coming from David Rosen, the national finance director for Hillary Clinton's political organization, do indeed instruct the delivery of $100,000 worth of SLM stock to the Working Families Party in New York state. This was a political-action group that threw support to Clinton's 2000 bid for the U.S. Senate."

This is so similar to the NY standard MO, i.e. big donations to action groups for the express benefit of a particular candidate. Godspeed with your work....

If there was any justice in this world, that would have been done a LONG time ago. I live in New York, and I can`t tell you how lovely it is to have this bonafide sociopath as Senator..Seeing her constantly in the news about her book tour in some other state or seeing her on Jay Leno or the Jon Stewart show or the 10 billion other shows, yet never seeing or reading about her anywhere near New York unless it`s for her to march in a parade for a photo op like she did in the Columbus day parade on monday. Every parade she marches in, yet not one funeral did she attend for the firemen or cops who died on 911. But what do you expect from a psychotic like her who supports terrorists, who put the lives of New Yorkers in danger by getting her husband to pardon FALN terrorists who bombed NYC 130 times just so she could buy votes from a few misguided individuals in her Senate run.

Historically, those prosecuted in cases of improper campaign contributions are donors rather than recepients. Politicians simply return questionable funds. I hope this is not the case this time. Somebody needs to nail Hillary (disgusting visual pun not intended).

Mr. Rodriguez,

We used to get B. Q. Cullum's radio program here in Phoenix. That is where I heard her interviews with you. I was very impressed with your work, and wondered about you after her show was no longer here.

I am so glad to know you are still out there working for America!! And getting rid of Hillary would be a very good thing for America!!

God bless you!

NEVER FORGET

...In 1968, another Time of War, HUBERT HUMPHREY went on to become the Democrat Party's Presidential Nominee at the last minute...

...thanks to the sudden Assassination of a Field-Leading ROBERT F. KENNEDY.

...Experts are now comparing that Presidential Election to the current one:


'Too Late for HILLARY?'

As much as I would love to see this happen, it won't happen in my lifetime, or hers either. It's just a shame that she & her pervert, corrupt, lying, selfish hubby can rape the American moral climate and get by with it. The liberals in this country would be willing to follow either one of them all the way to hell, and probably will.

I`m betting she is going to do it, just like you said, like Humphrey. Matter of fact I know she is! It all adds up, everything she is doing now, it allll adds up!. She`s a sociopath and she will run because she knows this is the only chance she is going to get, and she would rather die than miss that chance at ultimate power...This is why she`s constantly touring, doing book signings, appearing on talk shows, marching in parades. People think it`s to sell her book, but it`s not. She`s campaigning, plain and simple. I would bet any amount of money that she will, if I had any money! ha ha! Hey, I said Arnie would win Cali by a landslide last month and I was right. She is going to announce it at the last minute only to make herself look like the saviour of the Demon-rat party, and God help us but she just might win. And if she does it`ll be like Charlton Heston in the Planet of the apes when he hits the A-bomb switch and says "It`s doomsday!" Yes sir, it most certainly will be.

The Clinton's always bump up in approval ratings in the polls anytime they are portrayed as being under attack in the press, especially when the charges against them are either weak or come from some sympathetic Democrat who can be "turned" at the right moment in the election run up.

Sadly, their same old sympathy trick fools people on the Left into supporting them as well as fools people on the Right into falling for the same stunt again and again...

Peter Paul Promises Blockbuster Hillary Revelations
John O. Edwards, NewsMax.com
Monday, Sept. 29, 2003
A former Hillary Clinton fundraiser who has just been extradited from Brazil is promising blockbuster revelations against Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton -- revelations that could throw a monkeywrench into Hillary's presidential ambitions.

Peter Franklin Paul, who has accused Hillary Clinton of failing to declare $2 million in campaign contributions to the Federal Election Commission, is just back in the U.S. after being extradited from Brazil and is promising to reveal fresh details of how he financed Clinton.

Paul made some blistering criticisms of the Clintons to Brazil's Epoca magazine just before he was extradited.

Paul was returned to the U.S. on charges of stock fraud connected with bankrupting a publicly traded company he co-founded with Marvel Comics’ Stan Lee, the creator of famous cartoon heroes such as Spider Man, the X-Men and the Hulk.

Just two days before his departure from Brazil where he spent two years, Paul revealed to Epoca:

“I can prove everything. It was the biggest Senate campaign contribution in history and she didn’t declare it. The events I organized to raise money for her are demonstrated in my account statements from Merrill Lynch. I have letters from both Clintons thanking me for my help as well as a fax dated August 20 from David Rosen (National Finance Director for Hillary Clinton’s campaign) asking Gordon (Vice President of Stan Lee Media) to transfer shares from the company to their campaign account.”

A colorful character, Paul’s life as a roguish millionaire lawyer could inspire a Hollywood thriller. Paul participated in a plot against Fidel Castro in 1978, managed boxer Muhammad Ali and was a friend of celebrities such as Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Paul describes his prison time in Brazil as “difficult."

He was kept in a cold, hole-ridden cell and witnessed scenes of torture. Paul considers himself “very, very satisfied” with his extradition to the U.S. “I am being unjustly accused and want to tell everything I know.”

Paul’s story mixes business, international intrigue and political fundraising for the Clintons. “I am going to show that I was right about the Clintons,” says Paul.

Paul met Marvel Comics’ icon Stan Lee in the 1980s and co-founded an Internet company called Stan Lee Media in 1999.

When he was approached by Hollywood fundraiser Aaron Tonken to raise money for the Clintons, he cut a deal. Paul offered help raising money for Hillary and offered Bill Clinton a seat on the board of Stan Lee Media after the President left office.

Paul reveals:

'I Made a Deal'

“I made a deal with the Clintons and the Democratic Party. If I financed the campaign campaign, Bill Clinton would agree to join the board of my company after he left the White House. He would receive $ 15 million: $10 million in stock and $5 million in cash.”

With then Democratic National Committee Chairman Ed Rendell’s support, Paul organized a series of events for Hillary, as well as then Presidential candidate Al Gore.

Among his biggest accomplishments, Paul organized a Hollywood celebrity filled gala tribute to President Clinton.

“I performed a miracle. I organized a mega fundraising-event in just a few weeks”. The party cost $1.9 million featuring artists like Toni Braxton, Michael Bolton and Paul Anka. Paul paid for everything with loans from Merrill Lynch using his Stan Lee Media shares as collateral.

At first, Paul claims he planned to donate $525,000 but Hillary Clinton’s National Finance Director demanded more. “He told me: ‘If you don’t contribute more money, it’s all over.’ I was about to get Bill Clinton on board. I couldn’t give up.”

Stan Lee Media went bankrupt in January 2001, and Paul and the company’s Executive Vice President Stephen Gordon were accused of stock fraud and causing losses of $25 million to investors.

Paul blew the whistle on the Clintons a month after Stan Lee Media went bankrupt.

He says the accusations against him were a smokescreen to distract attention from the Clinton’s fundraising scandal and blames Merrill Lynch and Paine Webber for Stan Lee Media’s troubles.

Peter Paul was jailed while living in Brazil at the request of the Clinton Justice Department.

He was accused of stock manipulation but claims innocence and says the accusations are part of a plot that involves the Clintons as well as investment firms his company dealt with.

Paul claims he blew the whistle on Merrill Lynch and Paine Webber to FBI agent Stanley Myatt.

Paul denies ever having fled from justice.

“I was doing business in Brazil. I wasn’t fleeing from anything.”

In fact, Paul started doing business in Brazil in 1997 where he started a company called 112 Interactive to teach English using tapes and CD-ROMs that sold 4 million copies and regularly vacationed in Brazil with his family.

Paul now plans to release a DVD as well as a tell-all book about his experience as a Clinton fundraiser that includes spicy new revelations about the former President.

Paul revealed to Brazil’s “Epoca” magazine that Bill Clinton snuck pop singer Chaka Khan into the Oval Office at 1 o’clock in the morning.

Now that Paul is back in the U.S., he plans to reveal all of this and much more. Says Paul:

“I have many plans. I plan to start an organization to inform and protect the American public from abuses of power. I want to help prevent the powerful from compromising democracy. I also plan to sell a DVD with images of one of the fundraising events I organized for Hillary.”
