PETER PAUL: HILLARY KNEW ABOUT CAMPAIGN CASH
Newsmax ^ | 1/10/05

Posted on 01/10/2005 9:35:46 AM PST by areafiftyone

New York Sen. Hillary Clinton personally negotiated some of the fees for a star-studded Aug. 12, 2000 Hollywood fundraiser, the event's producer, Peter Paul, said in an interview aired on Sunday - as the event comes under increasing scrutiny by a Los Angeles grand jury and the Justice Department.

And in another sign of potential legal trouble for the top Democrat, a spokesman for the lawfirm championing Paul's case said his client informed Mrs. Clinton that her finance director, David Rosen, had failed to accurately report costs for the event to the Federal Election Commission.

"Hillary Clinton personally called the producer of the concert part of this event," Mr. Paul told Fox News Channel's Eric Shawn. "She asked him to lower the fee that he was charging of $850,000 at my request. So I don't understand how she could possibly say that she didn't know."

A secret four-count indictment against Rosen was unsealed by the Justice Department late Friday, charging that he deliberately underreported costs for the Aug. 2000 gala.

The indictment prompted a new round of denials from Clinton lawyer David Kendall.

"[Mrs. Clinton's] Senate Campaign Committee has fully cooperated with the investigation. Mr. Rosen worked hard for the Campaign, and we trust that when all the facts are in he will be cleared," he said in a statement.

But according to Judicial Watch, the lawfirm that has pressed the case since 2001 through a series of lawsuits and court filings, Mr. Paul personally informed Sen. Clinton that Rosen's filings were inaccurate.

"Peter wrote her a letter in 2001 telling her that the FEC forms from her campaign were false," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told NewsMax on Sunday. "Hillary Clinton knew Peter was paying for the event and was personally involved in negotiating the production fee for the event."

Fitton said Judicial Watch has "pictures, video, and thank you notes to prove [Clinton's] involvement" - evidence they have shared with the Justice Department.

"We hope politics does not protect her from prosecution again," Fitton added.

David Kendall must smile every night and think...."Who'd ever thunk that my client would just "keep on giving"."

Unfortunately, this administration seems to stand beside the Clintons, so this will just pass on by like all the other missed opportunities to bring those two to justice!

Once I saw Judicial Watch was involved I knew it will not go anywhere.

Hillary can't be the smartest person on earth and the least informed at the same time.

Being smart and being ignorant are not opposites. The former is a manner of innate quality--i.e., the ability to process information received and assess its meaning. The latter is a reflection on the quality of information that one possesses.

Not defending Hillary, just being a language pedant (c8

If they are going to indict hillary they better do it now or have done it under seal now. Some reporter needs to ask her directly if she has been put under indictment. ( if she says no and is found to have been she is toast) If she says yes, let the games begin.

Intersting running Sabato on the internet:
The guy seems a liberal so of course he gives Hillary a pass. He had this to say about Dick Cheney in Oct 2004:

University of Virginia political scientist Larry Sabato, in the latest edition of his highly acclaimed Cyrstal Ball eletter, looks at the dilemma facing President George Bush over Vice President Dick Cheney...and bluntly concludes "Cheney has blown it...(and) has failed his president and become a significant liability."

See: http://themoderatevoice.typepad.com/blog/2004/07/larry_sabato_on.html

Won't expect anything moderate or neutral from him.

Will anyone stand in the Senate chamber and hold up a paper with the headline, "HILLARY KNEW" so I can see it a little better?

"Hillary can't be the smartest person on earth and the least informed at the same time."

Kind if like how liberals say Bush is the biggest moron North of the Brazos river but has somehow been smart enough to steal two elections.

Given these views, cognitive dissonance must be a skill liberals work on developing.

Maybe cbs will come up with supporting documentation on her behalf.

Absolutely. Ol Bill got his deal cut with the GW. Listen FReepers. Nothing is EVER gonna happen to the Klintoons. There will be NO true conservative agenda nor will there be any true conservative Supreme Court when GW leaves. This is the game that this "Two-Party Cartel" has perpetrated on Americans. Only when you vote 90% of these corrupt politicians out of office with hopefully pols that are attentive to 'The People" will any of this change.

She's moved on to other projects, which is why Hillary has repaced her as vocalist in the group.
