Her Law Firm, Wilmer Hale, has been instrumental in defending GITMO detainees. Imagine, a woman, who is almost singlehandedly responsible for erecting the Wall that prevented the FBI and the CIA from sharing Intel in the Pre-911 days. Then, after we get hit, she sits on the 911 Commission, passing judgement on the actions of the Clinton administration but becoming immune herself from questioning about the wall. Then her law firm in Washington DC, is tapped to defend the very AQ Detainees whom she empowered and aided in the first place. I don’t even need to get into the graft and corruption that she oversaw while at Freddie and Fannie..

She is, in a word, a traitor.

I’d actually lime to see Obama nominate her for AG. I’d love to hear her responses to the Fannis Mae scandal where she cooked the books in irder to receive a fat bonus. All we need is a Republican member of the Judiciary committee to grow a set.

She looks like a dyke.

I think she is responsible for 9-11 as she was involved in a decision which kept security forces from exchanging valuable information with each other.

Dick MOrris was on FAX this morning. He said that for aguy touting “change” - the only “change” was to replace Bush staffers with Clinton Staffers and that Obama’s advisors look like Clinton’s.

He specifically mentioned Podesta as a guy who would leak information to the media about Clinton’s inner discussions and policies. Hope Podesta hasn’t learned anything.

She has been around since the Clinton administration doing a lot of illegal things. She was also on the boards of Freddie and Fanny. Traitor is mild for what she is.

Obama owes Gorelick nothing. It’ll be Eric Holder, mark my words. He was Deputy AG under Clinton, was part of the vice-presidential search team for Obama, and has been a big part of the campaign. The job is his if he wants it. And why wouldn’t he want to be the first African-American Attorney General?

What is amazing is this: While Fox and Megyn Kelly focus hours and hours on whether or not the Wash Post was fair in the election, WOW, Media Bias, I am stunned...they ignore a true story of treason...of Jamie Gorelick...

Here are some stories the Press Should Examine...

The story describing the 17million dollar defense of the AQ Murderers at Gitmo.

Here is Her Profile at Wilmer Hale. Sadly, she is a part of the National Security Group?? ICK!

We need to fight this crook, Jamie QuickBucks, with everything we have.

She should be investigated, not running the investigation.

...Haven’t we been on this page before with Jamie?

I hope the GOP members on the committee rip her up.

If the Republicans in the Senate let this worthless excuse for a human being become anything in Doofus’s cabinet that requires Senate confirmation then they deserve to be the minority forever.

If this happens then the Republicans Senators will confirm to the world they are nothing more than lap dogs who want the pay and perks of their office rather than serving the Country and the Constitution.

Needs to be asked in confirmation hearings, by one of our GOP Sens. I am not holding out hope. Ms. Gorelick, when you erected the wall at Justice, did you ever forsee the consequences for the 911 attacks?

At which point did you think it would be wise to join the defense team of the Al Qaeda detainees, in light of your creation of the wall?

Would you pursue similar policies at Attorney General?

None of the GOP has the b$lls to ask

A few weeks ago I watched ABC/Disney's 'Path to 9/11' (found it on the internet in Bit Torrent format). I now know why the Democrats and the Clintons have banned it.

I felt physically ill after watching that movie, thinking about the possibility of a Democrat win in November - well it it real now.....

Not only remembering the heroism, but irresponsible and criminal acts of those like Jamie Gorelick and Sandy Burglar and the stupidity of Madeline Albright makes me proud, sad, mad, and nauseated all at once.

There is NOTHING....NOTHING presidential about Barry. I can't contemplate Barry making decisions (with Joe) if we are attacked again under their watch. I am quite scared of who Barry will have as his cabinet members (like Zbigniew Brzezinski, Gorelick et al), and terrified of who is in his 'kitchen cabinet', like Michelle-Omarosa or folks like Rezko, Axelrod, Raines, Johnson, Wright, and Farrakhan.

She’s made millions..all from Govt. She walked away with big bonus’ from FNM and then gets big bucks for defending the scum at Club Gitmo.
She probably will bring them all to the US..let rigged courts find them innocent and turn them loose with green cards..cause they can’t go home. Then let their families come as refugees.
It is amusing, that our well educated friends. If you ask them now who she is..haven’t a clew.
