Call on Jamie S. Gorelick to Resign from the 9-11 Commission (click here)
The 9/11 Commission ^ | 4/14/04 | jmstein7

Posted on 04/14/2004 11:57:45 AM PDT by jmstein7

Call on Jamie S. Gorelick to Resign from the 9-11 Commission

From the AP:

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Sensenbrenner called on Jamie Gorelick to resign from the Sept. 11 commission Wednesday, citing a memo she wrote as a deputy attorney general on separating counterintelligence from criminal investigations. "Scrutiny of this policy lies at the heart of the commission's work," said Sensenbrenner, R-Wis. "Ms. Gorelick has an inherent conflict of interest as the author of this memo and as a government official at the center of the events in questions."

On Tuesday, Attorney General John Ashcroft released the declassified 1995 memo from Gorelick containing instructions that "more clearly separate" counterintelligence from criminal investigations. He said the "wall" between counterintelligence and criminal investigations was a key impediment to terrorism probes before the Sept. 11 attacks.

The Landmark Legal Foundation, a conservative law firm, also has called on Gorelick to step down, citing the memo.

A phone message left with the Sept. 11 commission was not immediately returned Wednesday.

I ask you to send the following email -- or your own -- asking Ms. Gorelick to do the right thing and step down.  Please flood the commission with these emails.

Send the email to the following address: info@9-11Commission.gov; info@9-11Commission.gov

You may also phone the commission here: 

Tel: (202) 331-4060

Fax: (202) 296-5545

Sample email is as follows:


Subject:  Do the Right Thing -- Resign

Dear Ms. Gorelick,

Please do the right thing and step down from the 9/11 Commission.

In 1995, as Deputy Attorney General of the Clinton Administration, you drafted and signed a memo creating a wall between counterintelligence and criminal investigation, a key impediment to terrorism probes before the Sept. 11 attacks.  As House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Sensenbrenner averred, "[s]crutiny of this policy lies at the heart of the commission's work."

This presents a severe and impermissible conflict of interest.  There is "an inherent conflict of interest as [you are] the author of this memo and [are] a government official at the center of the events in questions."

Ms. Gorelick -- please do the right thing.  If America is to believe that the 9/11 Commission is not merely a partisan sham aimed solely at damaging the Bush Administration, you must resign your position in light of this gross political conflict of interest.

I trust you will do the honorable thing and resign.

Sincerely,

YOUR NAME, YOUR ADRRESS, ETC.

Just the spelling of her name makes me wonder about her. Gorelick ----- That is a priceless picture for a cartoon.

I think she should be considered a Gore relic

I think that the presence of Gorelick on the commission is enough to call for dissolving the whole commission without a report. It is obvious that the Democrats on the commission were hand picked to cover up the responsibility of the Clinton administration in the lead up to the 9/11 attack. The question is, Who picked the Democrats for this commission?

You are right, Gorelick is a Clinton stooge:

From Alamo-Girl's DSL:

Original Sources 3/9/99 Mary Mostert "… In 1996 Bill Clinton told reporters he was "not told about the June 1996 FBI warnings of Communist Chinese involvement in the 1996 presidential election."

However, it was later learned that president Clinton not only KNEW about it, but that he subsequently made a thwarted attempt to obtain the counterintelligence information about what the FBI had learned of the Communist Chinese influence on the presidential election in November of 1996.

Charles Ruff, Clinton legal counsel who most recently defended him in the Senate Impeachment trial, made the FBI contact. Ruff contacted Janet Reno's deputy Jamie Gorelick and wanted to know what federal investigators knew or suspected about Chinese illegal contributions to the presidential campaign.

when FBI director Freeh learned of the White House probe by Gorelick, he ordered the information not be provided to Clinton, federal law enforcement officials told the Daily Republican in 1997. In a New York Times story Ruff was quoted as telling Gorelick he was seeking the information on behalf of the National Security Council….

However, law enforcement officials pointed out that Ruff's request was received only after FBI director Freeh had left Washington on a trip to the Middle East. In his absence, attorney general Janet Reno and Gorelick quickly moved to obtain the secret FBI files.

Before the Justice Department turned over the FBI files to Clinton's legal counsel, Robert Bryant, then head of the FBI national security division, picked up the telephone and informed Freeh of Clinton's probe for the secret files on the Chinese investigation.

Freeh ordered the files withheld. And people wonder how come the Senate of the United States was never able to get Janet Reno to obey the law of the land and appoint an independent counsel to investigate the Chinese money that helped get Clinton and Gore elected…."

I emailed earlier. One of many emails sent to the committee this week.

They must be getting bombarded because whereas I normally get the canned reply hours later I got the canned reply with the subject field saying "Subject: Out of Office AutoReply"

Did we drive them out of the office or are they hiding? I can't through on their phone line either.

my note

Dear Commission and Ms. Gorelick,

Recently Ms. Gorelick's history in substantive policy changes of intelligence operations have been brought to light. Being so intimately involved in the procedures which led to the intelligence failures of 9/11, Ms. Gorelick should not be sitting on this commission.

The partisan nature of Ms. Gorelick's appointment and the personal self protection she must engage in, makes her an unfit panel member.

I request she be asked to resign in order to restore some semblance of integrity to the commission. If the committee fails to remove Ms. Gorelick, your conclusions will be suspect, and your recommendations will lose authoritative impact.

Sincerely,

I don't think that I fully understand what happened in the case of the FBI files on the Chinese campaign money. How did the files relate to Reno stonewalling on an independent council? You mean she knew that the independent council would find enough cause for and indictment? So she stonewalled?

I revised the letter slightly and sent this to the attention of Thomas Kean at the 9/11 commission (same email address):

Dear Mr. Kean:

Jamie Gorelick should do the right thing and step down from the 9/11 Commission. If she doesn't, then you should take the initiative to have her removed from the 9/11 Commission.

In 1995, as Deputy Attorney General of the Clinton Administration, Jamie Gorelick drafted and signed a memo creating a wall between counterintelligence and criminal investigation, a key impediment to terrorism probes before the Sept. 11 attacks. As House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Sensenbrenner averred, "[s]crutiny of this policy lies at the heart of the commission's work."

This presents a severe and impermissible conflict of interest. There is "an inherent conflict of interest as [she is] the author of this memo and [is] a government official at the center of the events in questions."

If America is to believe that the 9/11 Commission is not merely a partisan sham aimed solely at damaging the Bush Administration, Jamie Gorelick must resign her position in light of this gross political conflict of interest.

Please have her resign or remove her from the 9/11 Commission.

Sincerely,

This entire commission is a farce and a democrat party set up...and of course aided by the media!

http://www.jsonline.com/enter/tvradio/mar04/216753.asp?showheadlines=all

NOTHING'S BURNING

CNN kept repeating an odd quote Monday from Richard Ben-Veniste, a member of the commission investigating the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He was talking about a former presidential aide's allegations that the Bush administration ignored al-Qaida before the attacks.

"People, such as Richard Clarke, were literally running through the halls of the White House with their hair on fire with the seriousness of these threats," according to a CNN transcript.

Ben-Veniste said almost the same thing Jan. 28 on NPR's "Talk of the Nation."

"Certain people in the intelligence community had their hair on fire, literally, with respect to the kinds of information that they were receiving," according to the transcript.

The literal blaze started with another commission member, Jamie Gorelick, who said this at a hearing the day before, according to the transcript: "We have ample evidence that across the intelligence community, literally hair was on fire through June."

No, hair wasn't "literally" on fire. That would mean it was actually burning.

Let's hope the commission is more precise in its findings than its members' fiery words are.

Here is a link that explains it pretty well.

Weldon calls Clinton,Gore, Reno, criminals

The point made in the DSL excerpt that I posted is that,
given Reno and Gorelick's attempts to ILLEGALLY obtain the
FBI files on an open investigation (Clinton wanted to know
just what the FBI had on him), that OF COURSE Reno wasn't
going to appoint a special prosecuter to investigate.
It also proves that Gorelick is a partisan Clinton stooge who should NOT be
on the 911 commisssion. Louis Freeh KNOWS where the bodies are buried,
and I guess he wants to live to see his 6 children grow up.
Hopefully someday he will be able to spill his guts.
