Matalin: Busted PI Deeply Involved in Clinton 'Bimbo' Operations
NewsMax.com ^ | 11/30/02 | Carl Limbacher and NewsMax.com Staff

Posted on 11/30/2002 10:45:01 PM PST by kattracks

A famous Los Angeles private detective who was busted by the FBI last week with an arsenal of explosives big enough to arm a small al Qaeda terror cell was deeply involved in former President Bill Clinton's efforts to intimidate his ex-girlfriends into silence, according to senior Bush White House advisor Mary Matalin.

Before joining the White House in 2001 as counselor to Vice President Cheney and assistant to President Bush, Matalin worked as political director of Bush 41's failed 1992 reelection effort.

In the interim, while hosting her own nationally syndicated talk radio show on Washington, D.C.'s WRC-AM, Matalin went public with what she knew about Clinton private eye Anthony Pellicano, whose Sunset Blvd. office was raided by a dozen FBI agents nine days ago.

Among other evidence tying Pellicano to the Clintons, the top White House advisor revealed she had audio tapes of the famed detective attempting to intimidate women into silence.

"I controlled the money in the (Bush 1992) campaign," Matalin explained during a 1997 broadcast. "And Betsy Wright announced that she was putting $28,000 on the 'bimbo' patrol and on Jack Palladino and Pellicano, the other guy."

The top White House advisor told her WRC audience:

"And $28,000 to me, the political director, was four states in the Rocky Mountains. You had a limited budget. I said, how could they spend this much money? How could they basically give up four states to track down 'bimbos'?

"That's why it was kind of shocking to me that it must have been a bigger priority than putting money into states for the purpose of winning and that's why I flagged it at the time. I don't even remember how many or what kind of women.... They didn't want to come forward......

"Then I got the letters from Pellicano to these women intimidating them. I had tapes of conversations from Pellicano to the women. I got handwritten letters from the women."

Matalin continued:

"I got one letter from one of the women's dad's saying, 'This is so horrible. Here's what they're going to do to us,' you know, essentially. It's not like they said, 'We're going to go out there and bust your kneecaps. (It was more like) we're going to say this, that and the other.'

"A lot of these women are now, you know - time had gone by. They have kids, they have families. They're in their communities. They don't want to be splashed out there and trashed like Gennifer Flowers was. And that's one of the ways they were intimidated. Or say, if they were employed, (the Clinton PI's) were going to go to their bosses. You know, I don't have to go through the litany of things of how to intimidate a witness."

Matalin said that even though she had smoking gun proof of the Clinton campaign's heavy handed attempts to silence the future president's ex-girlfriends, then-President Bush refused to use the damaging material to save his reelection bid.

"When I went to my boss in the campaign with this information and then they went to Bush, Bush himself called me up and said, 'I don't want to hear it. Don't even tell me what you have. Throw it all out,'" she told her WRC audience.

Matalin said she stored the information in her "top drawer" for a while but "I did ultimately throw it out."

Pellicano was arrested earlier this month in connection with an attempt to intimidate Los Angeles Times reporter Anita Busch, who was investigating an extortion plot against actor Steven Seagal.

Busch allegedly discovered the windshield of her car broken and a dead fish on the front seat with a red rose in its mouth. Former ex-con Alexander Proctor told prosecutors that Pellicano paid him $10,000 to scare the Times reporter off.

After searching the famed private detective's office, investigators found plastic explosives, blasting caps and detonating cord, along with $150,000 in cash.

Pellicano's past involvement in the O.J. Simpson and Michael Jackson cases has prompted wide coverage of his arrest, though only NewsMax.com has detailed his connection to the Clintons.

...A Caller into last Sunday Night's MATT DRUDGE Talk Radio Show remarked:

.."The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has just given JUDICIAL WATCH permission to depose HILLARY RODHAM about why she sent ANTHONY PELLICANO out on GENNIFER FLOWERS. Now won't THAT be interesting...?"

ALL in GOD's Plan, perhaps...?

The thing I never understood was the implicit trust of Mary Matalin because she perported to be conservative. She sleeps with James Carville for cryin' out loud.

I can't wait to hear Hillary's testimony. If they check the records, they are going to find that matching federal campaign funds were paid to PIs to intimidate women. That is a crime both in the intimidation and in the use of the money. Let's hope that this can do damage to Hillary.

That would be a great day! Of course she wouldn't do anything honarable like resign, but should be another smear of shame on her face for all to see!

I'm shocked. The Clintons use mob ties to silence and intimidate people? Next thing you know...someone will be saying that maybe these same "family" types had something to do with the Clinton relocation to N.Y. and Senate "win" there. This must really stick in the craw of Torrecelli.

If you're a normal citizen and you have that much cash don't you have to prove it wasn't from drug sales?

Jerry Parks

Just above this post I have provided photos of three of the known Clinton investigators long thought to have been very problematic, with regard to intimidation of witnesses against the Clintons.  Here is another well known investigator hired by the Clintons, more specificly Hillary Clinton.

Mr. Parks was a confidant of Clinton White House Attorney Vince Foster.  Parks was hired by the Mrs. to keep tabs on hubby's trists.  When Foster was reluctant to turn over materials developed by Parks, the Clintons became angry about it.

Foster was found dead the day after a late night conversation with Jerry Parks.  Jerry told his family that he was a dead man upon hearing of Foster's death.  Within 45 days Parks was dead, gunned down gangland style at an intersection south of Little Rock, Arkansas.

It may be called character. That Bush's standards were high.

Then again, it may be because of the known lack of character and standards of the media - who were too busy trying to fabricate a story of Bush in a clinton type story.

I have this feeling (irrational hope?) that the Republicans may be keeping their powder dry in case Hillary makes a serious noise about running for the White House. There's a political war going on beneath the surface. I remember reading a few years back about a Republican private investigator who is so low profile that you will never see his name or picture. It was quite a write-up, and apparently this guy is very, very good. And like many of the operations in the 'war on terror', the public will never know about many covert operations and important victories that take place in this underground political dirt war.

I try to pay attention to which political loud-mouths suddenly disappear from the public eye - - you know.... the people you don't hear from much anymore, or see on TV. Who mysteriously "retires", seemingly out of the blue? On the Republican side, you have to wonder about Joe Scarborough, John Kasich, and Bill Paxon. There's been some on the rat side as well, most notably Bill Gray. I have no doubt that the Clinton dirt machine was fully responsible for the revelations about Henry Hyde and Bob Livingston. I only wonder how many people have been compromised?

No problemo.... Hitlery will just say 'I don't recall ...' under oath and will be lying. They don't impeach the Clintons for lying under oath and not remembering is the easy way out.

Hitlery is scum just like Bubba.

News Max can be relied upon for truth in reporting. Few other than Fox can claim that. The question I have is what does Mary M. have to gain by going public with this?

It is well known that Hillary used that PI and others before him to keep her in office...her fears were always that Bill would get caught. She sent out trial balloons while he was still governor to see if the American people would accept a philanderer...the idiots would. Bill Clinton uses women, he denigrates and humiliates them then Hillary gets her goons together to deride and threaten them. Both are power and wealth hungry Sociopaths.

Hillary however, is the meanest of the duo. She does not hold her temper well.

How about the LA Times? It is a true story and he is the slime ball the Clinton's employed to trash whomever their politics of personal destruction dictated. It should be front page news all over the country, because Hillary will do it again, and again, if given a shot at WH power again.

What has NewsMax reported or not reported,that you have so little regard for them?

IMHO, throwing out this potentially damning information was an incredibly dense move, second only to marrying Carville.

unlike matlin, noted investigative journalist, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard was on the story. bubba prolly got group rates for flying so many bimbos over to europe during the investigation. for a blast from the past, click the following link:

Cherchez la Femme

Most of Bill Clinton's female friends sought by the Jones team seem to have resorted to skilful manoeuvres to avoid having to testify. Some have gone abroad.

If you're a normal citizen and you have that much cash don't you have to prove it wasn't from drug sales?

If you were a normal person with that type of cash on hand,you would be arrested for suspiscion of being a drug dealer,and the cash would be confiscated.
