Obamaís HHS Nominee Proved Her Loyalty to Clinton by Digging Through a Dead Manís Trash
The Washington Free Beacon ^ | April 11, 2014 | Andrew Stiles

President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius.

Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster.

Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators about how senior officials had seized and disposed of files relating to the first couple’s controversial investments in the Whitewater Development Corporation, a failed real estate venture.

Clinton spokeswoman Dee Dee Myers admitted that then-White House counsel Bernard Nussbaum, who had recovered documents relating to the Whitewater controversy from Foster’s office after his death, did not turn over the documents to the Clinton family’s personal attorney, contrary to what White House officials had claimed. Nussbaum had actually given the documents to Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff, who placed them in a White House safe for five days before being turned over to the family attorney.

Under questioning, Sylvia Mathews and her colleagues denied impeding a police investigation into Foster’s death after his body was found in a northern Virginia park. According to the New York Times, Mathews testified “in laborious detail about what she had found in Mr. Foster’s garbage on the night he died.”

That experience may come in handy as she prepares to oversee the implementation of Obamacare.

Hussein and Hillary have a lot in common — both lead gangs of scurvy scum.

Isn’t dumpster diving in a dead man’s garbage something that ONLY the Police are authorized to do?

In a police state, the police get to do everything. So I think you are right there.

No. You can do whatever you can get away with. I went through the trash cans in my deceased father-in-law's office looking for a book. I didn't get a court order or anything. (he had left the book near the recliner)

With Reid's unethical if not illegal down of the filibuster rules, you can bet 'O' will get any nominee he want through the process quickly.

I am waiting for Reid to next change the filibuster rules on all policy legislation votes the next time the GOP threatens a filibuster. He wants to end up with 50% up or down on everything, and with the direct election of Senators after passage of the 17th Amendment, the Senate has become nothing more than a smaller version of the US House.

Reid and 'O' are betting the RATS will control everything for a long time to come now that they have an entire segment of the population dependent on their form of Government - When John F. Kennedy was President, just over a quarter of federal spending went to fund programs paying for some 21.7 million Americans to be dependent on Uncle Sam. But as high as that spending and dependence on the federal government was then, it has exploded today, with one in five Americans — more than 67.3 million — depending on Washington for assistance.

[Shhhhhhhh! Whatever you do, don’t tell Obama that!

Loose Cannon Obama still thinks that he has to rely on showy Executive Orders from time to time to placate “offended” doormat Republicans, such as Boehner.]

The trick is to keep them from getting away with it.

It must be called quickly and continually, and have it beat out of them.

That's what dad did, anyway.

The garbage queen should fill Skeletor’s shoes nicely since the Obamanites value loyalty over competence.

Hillary began her legal career by obstructing justice and getting away with it. She has thumbed her nose at the law ever since.

The FBI head had been fired the day before, and the FBI was blocked from the investigation.

Well, she certainly is starting off on the typical demodummie road to deception. Will the democrats ever have someone in their ranks who has NOT broken our laws?
