Clinton's first-lady records locked up
The Los Angeles Times ^ | August 14, 2007 | Peter Nicholas, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

Posted on 08/14/2007 12:43:46 PM PDT by Turret Gunner A20

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton cites her experience as a compelling reason voters should make her president, but nearly 2 million pages of documents covering her White House years are locked up in a building here, obscuring a large swath of her record as first lady.

Archivists say the documents at her husband's presidential library won't be released until after the '08 vote.

Anybody have any suggestions as to why?

It’s the former first lady that should be locked up.

Calling hildebeast klinton a lady is like calling Michael Vick an animal lover.

This is incredible. If possible, something should be done about it. I know she was active behind the scenes on important issues. I heard about lesbian harpies accosting military men at their hotels, while the men were negotiating important international issues at the UN, threatening to “report them to Hillary” if they didn’t fall in line.

I suspect she was behind a lot of the stuff the US was doing in international negotiations at that time — like taking the same positions as the North American Man-Boy Love Association on issues like lowering the age of sexual consent.

I suspect that, if she were required to be as transparent about her past public dealings as the other candidates, she could be pilloried.

Wonder what the MSM would say if Mitt’s wife wanted to lock up her records for the period he was governor and not release them until after the election?

I’ve said before, but this is exactly the kind of thing that can cost a Republican his/her career. With Hillary, it will NEVER be brought up at a news conference or anywhere else by the MSM. In 24 hours, this story will be colder than Vince Foster’s body.

Ask Howard Dean, I suspect he taught her this little trick. (recall 2004 election, he did the same thing with his governor records).

The records will show that Hitlery banned all interns from the WH. However, all her “girlfriends” ended up in the Lincoln Bedroom with her sans Bubba.

Interesting that this was in the liberal LA Times. But seriously, people, Hillary cites her great experience as a reason to elect her. And she freely talks about events when she was First Lady as part of the experience she has.

So......then, she has all this experience, including when she was First Lady and observed firsthand what happens in the White House, wouldn’t it make sense that she would want documentation of her actions released to the public?

I think there is embarrassing info. there that they want to keep sealed.

Anyone running for President should have all their records open for viewing by the people of this country. Can you imagine that, if in those records it showed that she is a card carrying member of the communist party, a lesbian, has stated that the US should get rid of our milirtay, believes that the UN should be the only ones with military on our shores. Name it and if it’s in there, the American people need to know.

The Republican candidates need to form an embargo of their documents until Hillary releases her documents. A total press blackout.

Robert Schrum, [big-time Democrat insider], said: "In 2 million pieces of paper, would opposition researchers hope to find one where she wrote a memo saying, 'I wish I'd never gotten involved in health care?' Sure. That's what they'd love to find."

Stop with the BS, Schrum. There is obviously a lot more there than a one in two million chance of finding a relatively benign memo. Maybe a memo saying, "I wish we could do away with Vince, but we have to work out the details." Or maybe some more Rose Law Firm billing records, or perhaps some misplaced FBI files of leading Republicans that Craig Livingstone procured for her? Just a few possibilities that Schrum wouldn't even think of mentioning.

She has the right to keep her records locked up as she wishes. After the nomination, then we go for them.

Look at the source — I can’t believe the LA Times is running this. Or maybe they back Obama.

But this is par for the course for politicians. They don’t want their dirty laundry being aired. Bush tried to hide his governor’s records and delayed the release of his dad’s records.

I don’t know what they’re talking about, but W did issue an executive order about the PRA just after taking office. I think he extended it, which they should be thanking him for in this case.

Well, it wouldn't much matter. Even if her bunch couldn't find anything to speak of in a Republican candidate's documents, they could always get one of their MSM pals to concoct phony documents, like Dan Rather did with George Bush's alleged National Guard records.

I'm not sure she can.

There was another thread on this today where I posted the definition of terms from the act. The First Lady is not mentioned, and I think it would be a stretch to have her covered under executive privilege.

She wasn’t First Lady. She was co-President. An unconstitutional position that will lead to more violations of the constitution (when her 2-terming husband is returned to the White House in spite of term limits).

We aren’t supposed to notice that she already held executive branch powers when she tried to force socialized healthcare on “US”.

Not true! These records at issue are part of government archives and are subject to the statutory provisions of the Freedom of Information Act and the Privacy Act, not HRC's whims!
