A beat cop from Boston could have assembled this prosecution in three days and have gotten a guilty conviction on the entire DNC.

This has been going on for years. They had better hurry up because the stauate of limitations is catching up. There is no justice in the justice department, just breast chasers and pond drainers.

You know this is an old story that is going NOWHERE!

The CLintons are not the McGreeveys of the world where people PAY for their actions.

It took the DOJ an entire year just to extradite the guy from Brazil. Brazil had not even contested the extradition. All we had to do was send someone to go take custody of Paul. Once he was here, almost one full year has gone by before even interviewing him and seating a grand jury over financial transactions four and five years ago!

Is anyone beginning to get the picture? There won't even be an audit trail for the DNC's electric bills in 2000, let alone what they have been destroying for five years.

For those who have followed this case, the joke is on those who have just discovered it as the holy grail of Clintonista grift.

The CLintons are not the McGreeveys of the world where people PAY for their actions.

I think Hillary is tied to Kushner who is tied to McGreevey. So is Schumer and Kerry. Federal investigation. There is more to the McGreevey resignation than we have so far been told, I believe.

...that bolsters the FBI agent's charges from 2002 but adds a surprising twist involving an alleged bribe to Bill Clinton while he was president that certainly will be unwelcome news among many Democrats who have hoped that scandals involving the Clintons were long ago over.

The clinton scandals will never be over. Even after this scary duo dies.

And what are you? Zero for zero!

At least they have given the Evil Teensy Bent One and his wicked witch wife tons of grief over the years. I admire Judicial Watch for that in itself. Anyone who can give the g*dd*m Clintons the grief they deserve is OK with me.

I don't expect they'll ever be convicted of anything...in fact, if there was an authenticated video of Hillary on the grassy knoll and Bill in the School Book depository triangulating to blow off JFK's bean, the libs would still shower love upon the Clintons and revere them as their gods.

So, absent the possibility of conviction(s), being a gnat in the Clinton's ears is alright!

There won't even be an audit trail for the DNC's electric bills in 2000, let alone what they have been destroying for five years.

Maybe you missed the fact that the FBI already has the records (story in bold below). Here are excerpts from stories I have on file:

04/19/04 - The Federal Election Commission has opened a formal probe into a star-studded Aug. 12, 2000 Hollywood fundraiser for then-first lady Hillary Clinton's Senate campaign, Fox News Channel reported on Sunday. And some say the development is at least partly responsible for Sen. Clinton's claim that she's not interested in joining John Kerry's presidential ticket.

The allegations themselves are not new: Two of the event's organizers, Hollywood producer Peter Paul and charity fundraiser Aaron Tonken, have detailed a series of transactions undertaken in conjunction with Hillary's campaign that could violate FEC regulations, with Paul charging that the campaign failed to report nearly $2 million he spent producing the event.

But months before Paul was returned to the U.S. to stand trial in the stock case, Hollywood fundraiser Aaron Tonken began cooperating with federal probers. Tonken has said that he's a star witness against the Clintons in a federal grand jury probe in New York into Mr. Clinton's Marc Rich pardon - and has been cooperating with the U.S. attorney in Los Angeles who's probing his fundraising activities.

FEC Heat Hurts Hillary's VP Chances

Background:

New York Sen. Hillary Clinton surely hopes that history isn't repeating itself with the raid conducted by the FBI last month on another warehouse; this one chock full of documents from her 2000 Senatorial campaign.

"The documents were seized in a May 30 raid of a California storage facility containing documents of Peter Paul, the entrepreneur who funded Hillary Clinton's Senate campaign with over $2 million dollars in direct, in-kind contributions which were never reported by Hillary Clinton or her Senate campaign, as required by law," revealed the public interest law firm Judicial Watch in a press release late last week.

FBI Raids Hillary's Warehouse in Whitewater Deja Vu

The Bush administration has quietly done an about-face on allegations that New York Sen. Hillary Clinton broke campaign finance laws in 2000 - with the Justice Department preparing to extradite one-time Clinton fund-raiser Peter Paul to the U.S. as part of a plea deal for his testimony. The sudden action on Paul's case comes just weeks after reports surfaced that former Hollywood fund-raiser Aaron Tonken has supplied damaging testimony about Hillary Clinton's fund-raising practices.

"I'm a star witness against President and Mrs. Clinton," Tonken claimed in a recent report on his case in Vanity Fair magazine, explaining that prosecutors wanted his testimony about" "fundraising activities that I've done on behalf of the Clintons." The exact nature of Tonken's allegations against Sen. Clinton remains secret, the magazine said. But the celebrity moneyman is known to have been involved in the August 2000 fund raiser that is at the heart of Peter Paul's allegations.

The End of Hillary Clinton

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.

Clintons' Fall Guy May Turn the Tables (Peter Paul)

Mr. Paul has substantial, documentary evidence detailing his close relationship with the Clintons and his funding of the Hollywood tribute, including cancelled checks, hand-written thank you notes from the Clintons, and photographs. Also named in the complaint is Clinton fundraiser David Rosen, Clinton friend James Levin, and Hollywood celebrity fundraiser Aaron Tonken, who currently is under criminal investigation for his role in other Hollywood fundraisers. As a result of Mr. Paul’s disclosures, federal authorities have launched an investigation into the Clintons and other matters. Mr. Paul, who is facing alleged (and related) stock and bank fraud charges, remains eager to cooperate with federal authorities.

But getting the truth out about the Clintons
has helped keep this wicked-twosome backed up a bit.

N.J. Governor's Top Fund-Raiser Charged

By STEVE STRUNSKY
The Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Gov. James E. McGreevey's top donor Real estate developer Charles Kushner engaged a call girl to have sex with a witness, had someone videotape them, and then sent the man's wife a copy of the tape, U.S. Attorney Christopher J. Christie said Tuesday.

Kushner was trying to discourage the witness, a former employee, from cooperating further in a criminal investigation of Kushner for possible tax fraud and illegal campaign contributions, Christie said.

Christie said Kushner hired two prostitutes in December for $25,000 and had also targeted a second witness, also a former employee, but that witness declined the prostitute's advances.

"There is nothing, nothing more sacrosanct than the integrity of the grand jury system," Christie said.

Kushner, 50, was charged of conspiracy, obstructing a federal investigation and promoting prostitution. He posted $5 million bail and was ordered to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet.

"We are saddened to hear of the allegations," McGreevey spokeswoman Kathy Ellis said. "It would be inappropriate, however, to comment further on matters unrelated to this office."

Kushner did not speak in court and had no comment outside the courthouse.

"Charles Kushner is one of the most respected business leaders in the community and widely known as a very generous philanthropist," his lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said in a statement.

"The charges filed today are entirely baseless. Mr. Kushner is confident that once the facts are fully disclosed in a courtroom he will be completely exonerated."

Last month, Kushner was fined $508,900 by the Federal Election Commission for improperly contributing money to political candidates in the names of his companies.

Since his first gubernatorial campaign in 1997, McGreevey has received at least $369,050 from Kushner, family members and employees of Kushner's firm. The money accounts for nearly 5 percent of the $7.9 million in donations McGreevey has raised in the last decade. Kushner has also solicited donations from friends and business associates.

In February 2003, Kushner withdrew as McGreevey's nominee to head the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. At the time, Kushner was the target of lawsuits contending he improperly used business funds for personal and political purposes.

Kushner denied any wrongdoing and McGreevey refused to back away from the appointment despite months of questions about the nominee's background and campaign donations.

Christie said Tuesday's indictment is not related at all to McGreevey.

"There is absolutely nothing in this criminal complaint which has anything to do with the governor of New Jersey," Christie said.

Last week a federal indictment charged another McGreevey fund-raiser with extortion, alleging he demanded money to help a farmer get a favorable sale price for his land in a farmland preservation program.

Although McGreevey himself was not mentioned by name, the governor has said he believes he is the "State Official 1" referred to repeatedly in the indictment.
