Clintons to face fraud trial (Judge setting date, testimony to include ex-president, senator)
Worldnetdaily ^ | Posted: February 19, 2008 | 2008 WorldNetDaily

While Hillary Clinton battles Barack Obama on the campaign trail, a judge in Los Angeles is quietly preparing to set a trial date in a $17 million fraud suit that aims to expose an alleged culture of widespread corruption by the Clintons and the Democratic Party.

At the conclusion of a hearing Thursday morning before California Superior Court Judge Aurelio N. Munoz, lawyers for Hollywood mogul Peter F. Paul will begin seeking sworn testimony from all three Clintons – Bill, Hillary and Chelsea – along with top Democratic Party leaders and A-list celebrities, including Barbra Streisand, John Travolta, Brad Pitt and Cher.

DoJ Confirms: As of Jan 31, 2008, Bill Clinton Holds Key to Release Hillary Clinton’s White House Records

Judicial Watch Open Records Lawsuit Seeks Hillary Clinton’s Daily Schedules

(Washington, DC)– Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that the Department of Justice has confirmed that the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is on schedule to process 10,000 pages of Hillary Clinton’s daily schedule records by today, January 31, 2008, pursuant to NARA’s court filing (and promises made during a court hearing last month) in a Judicial Watch lawsuit (Judicial Watch, Inc. v U.S. National Archives and Records Administration, Civil Action No: 1:07-cv-01267 (JR)). The decision to immediately release Hillary’s White House records now rests with former President Clinton and his representatives.

Mr. Clinton justified the clemencies by asserting that the sentences were disproportionate to the crimes. None of the petitioners, he stated, had been directly involved in crimes that caused bodily harm to anyone. “For me,” the president concluded, “the question, therefore, was whether their continuing incarceration served any meaningful purpose.”

His comments, including the astonishing claim that the FALN prisoners were being unfairly punished because of “guilt by association,” were widely condemned as a concession to terrorists. Further, they were seen as an outrageous slap in the face of the victims and a bitter betrayal of the cops and federal law enforcement officers who had put their lives on the line to protect the public and who had invested years of their careers to put these people behind bars. The U.S. Sentencing Commission affirmed a pre-existing Justice Department assessment that the sentences, ranging from 30 to 90 years, were “in line with sentences imposed in other cases for similar terrorist activity.”

What about California Superior Court Judge Aurelio N. Munoz? Is he a lib, or is he one that can be counted on not to submit to the pc crowd and give in to the klinton cult of personality?

Well he has to follow the rules on this one, since a seperate investigation is under way by the Justice department on the last ruling and the FEC (Federal Election Commission)role in possible obstruction.

The eyes of justice are watching Munoz, and all parties involved.

Sure won’t.
Lest we forget this as well!
The Clinton Legacy

The Progressive Review

This list was compiled at the end of the Clinton administration. It was last partially updated in 2000

Our Clinton Scandal Index

The Clintons, to adapt a line from Dr. Johnson, were not only corrupt, they were the cause of corruption in others. Yet seldom in America have so many come to excuse so much mendacity and malfeasance as during the Clinton years. Here are some of the facts that have been buried.

RECORDS SET

- The only president ever impeached on grounds of personal malfeasance
- Most number of convictions and guilty pleas by friends and associates*
- Most number of cabinet officials to come under criminal investigation
- Most number of witnesses to flee country or refuse to testify
- Most number of witnesses to die suddenly
- First president sued for sexual harassment.
- First president accused of rape.
- First first lady to come under criminal investigation
- Largest criminal plea agreement in an illegal campaign contribution case
- First president to establish a legal defense fund.
- First president to be held in contempt of court
- Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions
- Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions from abroad
- First president disbarred from the US Supreme Court and a state court

* According to our best information, 40 government officials were indicted or convicted in the wake of Watergate. A reader computes that there was a total of 31 Reagan era convictions, including 14 because of Iran-Contra and 16 in the Department of Housing & Urban Development scandal. 47 individuals and businesses associated with the Clinton machine were convicted of or pleaded guilty to crimes with 33 of these occurring during the Clinton administration itself. There were in addition 61 indictments or misdemeanor charges. 14 persons were imprisoned. A key difference between the Clinton story and earlier ones was the number of criminals with whom he was associated before entering the White House.

Go away, Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch. You have sucked in more than enough money from naive people. How about giving Peter back several millions THAT YOU NEVER SPENT ON HIS CASE!
