Clinton book rips Hyde on impeachment ("Soviet-style Show Trial" Alert)

Clinton book rips Hyde on impeachment

June 10, 2003

BY LYNN SWEET Sun-Times Washington Bureau Chief

WASHINGTON--Hillary Rodham Clinton writes in her new book that she saw a "double standard'' in how Rep. Henry J. Hyde (R-Ill.) dismissed the news of his adultery that surfaced while Hyde was presiding over impeachment proceedings against her husband.

Hyde, then the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, was "particularly intransigent'' in his opposition to a compromise that would have let the president escape with a censure rather than an impeachment trial, Clinton writes in Living History.

After being outed by Salon, an online magazine, Hyde acknowledged on Sept. 16, 1998, that he had a five-year affair with a Chicago woman in the late 1960s, when he was married. Salon during that time was critical of Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr's probe of Bill Clinton's fling with Monica Lewinsky.

Hyde, who was then 74, blamed the Clinton White House for the story and called his affair a "youthful indiscretion.''

"Despite my many personal and ideological differences with Hyde, I was sympathetic to his distress,'' Clinton writes, "although mystified that he didn't see the double standard in his reaction.''

Clinton's much-anticipated book, which fueled speculation she is laying the groundwork for a 2008 White House run, hit bookstores on Monday. The book, which snagged Clinton a $8 million advance, already has blockbuster potential.

Publisher Simon & Schuster spokesman Victoria Meyer said the company on Monday added another 100,000 to its initial order of 1 million copies.

In the 528-page memoir, Clinton tells of her family's roots in Chicago, her Park Ridge youth, her transition from a Goldwater Girl to a Democrat, her turbulent eight years as first lady and her decision to run for the Senate from New York.

Lewinsky's name first appears on page 441.

Clinton's autograph session at a Manhattan bookstore drew a crowd--some waited overnight to get in--and she will be on the book tour circuit this summer. She will hit most big cities between her regular Senate duties.

Clinton, who stayed popular in Illinois through all the White House scandals, reaches Chicago at the end of June. She has remained in constant contact with her friends from Park Ridge and they will throw her a party on June 27, which will be followed by a fund-raiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

On June 28, there will be a breakfast to benefit her political action committee, called HILLPAC, followed by a book-signing at Women & Children First bookstore at 5233 N. Clark.

She's had quite a run:

Looking for ghost voters

Clinton writes how as a kid, she and Park Ridge buddy Betsy Johnson Ebeling--still her good friend--sneaked downtown to look for ghost voters following the 1960 election, when Mayor Richard J. Daley was accused of stealing votes for John F. Kennedy.

Clinton went off with "total strangers'' to a "poor neighborhood'' on Chicago's South Side checking names against registration lists.

The girls had to sneak because they would not have been permitted to go if they asked their parents. Clinton writes when her father found out, "he went nuts. It was bad enough to go downtown without an adult, but to go to the South Side alone sent him into a yelling fit.''

Waste not

She tells how her late father, Hugh Rodham, who once ran a drapery business at the Merchandise Mart called Rodrik Fabrics, could not stand waste. His feelings were so strong that if Clinton or one of her two brothers forgot to put the cap back on a tube of toothpaste, "my father threw it out of the bathroom window.''

Rosty's bum steer

Clinton's big flop as first lady was her health care plan, a 1,342-page proposal. She writes that she wanted to give Congress only an "outline of principles that would shape the health care reform legislation,'' say, 250 pages.

She changed her mind at the behest of former Rep. Dan Rostenkowski (D-Ill.), the Chicagoan who headed the Ways and Means Committee.

"But we subsequently learned that Congressman Dan Rostenkowski expected us to produce a detailed bill, complete with legislative language.''

Giving Rosty what he wanted turned out be, Clinton writes, "a tactical mistake for us.''

Remember the Busy Bee

Clinton reflects on one of her biggest flaps, which happened just before the Illinois primary, on March 15, 1992, at the now-shuttered Busy Bee Restaurant at 1546 N. Damen.

"I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and given teas," Clinton told reporters, trying to deflect charges from challenger Jerry Brown, who accused Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton of steering business to his wife's Rose law firm.

Writes Clinton, "It wasn't my most eloquent moment.''

Bill's hands

"His wrists are narrow and his fingers tapered and deft, like those of a pianist or surgeon."

Now his hands are "like their owner, weathered, but still expressive, attractive and resilient.''

It hurt

After transferring from Maine East to the new Maine South in her junior year, Clinton ran and lost for senior class president, "which did not surprise me but still hurt.''

Hyde's hearings

Clinton is blunt when she writes about the impeachment proceedings chaired by Hyde and writes it fell short of how the House Judiciary Committee handled matters during the 1974 Richard Nixon impeachment--which she worked on as a Democratic staffer.

"I was disgusted when Hyde announced that the committee would be calling Kenneth Starr as its main witness.''

During the "Soviet-style show trial procedure, Starr had to admit that he had not himself examined a single witness before a grand jury.''

Being as she was instrumental in forming the group that got and distributed this information, her crocodile tears are particularly repellant.

Henry Hyde did not lie about his affair under oath before a federal judge in a sexual harrassment lawsuit and then compound his lie before a federal grand jury. That's the distinction. I am "mystified that she didn't see the double standard in her reaction."

Unfortunately, too many dimwits don't get the distinction between Clinton's acts, and Mr. Hyde's indescretion. Many in this country are still hung up thinking that the Klintoon was impeached because he diddled with Monica.

Clinton was not being impeached for adultery! How many times does this have to be explained in order for people with half a wit to understand?

Clinton was really being impeached for the thousands of other facts known which the spineless republicans had not the stomach for bringing forth out of fear for their own hides over their similar acts.

Clinton had banked on that fact and it worked. To judge the president over a horny girl with a slippery dugout bad manners only exceeded by the president's was just wrong.

Passing the buck. Somehow I suspect Rosty was too shrewd to have done this. But didn't he get some sort of commutation from Clinton? He may choose not to go public with the truth on this.

Amazing isn't it? This "LITTLE" tidbit of data is LEFT OUT of every defense made of the cigar toting oval office and women abuser. Posterity, if left to the gimmies, will observe that a POTUS was IMPEACHED for nothing more than marital infidelity.

As John Adams and the Gipper used to say, facts are stubborn things. Clinton lied under oath to a federal judge in a sexual harrassment lawsuit and compounded his lie before a federal grand jury, for which he was impeached, held in contempt of court, lost his license to practice law and had to pay $700,000 to settle the lawsuit. We must repeat those facts at every opportunity.

I am mystified that she didn't see the irony of a lawsuit for sexual harassment that was based on something Bill signed into law. I am pretty PO'd that the Republicans did not hammer Bill into repealing it...ever.

"Clinton was not being impeached for adultery"

There has got to be some way to put this erroneous information down the tubes once and for all. This is getting ridiculous - I'm hearing people repeating what Hitlery said about the "right-wing bending the Constitution to impeach x42 for adultry" [paraphrase].

There was even more irony. The feminists and liberal courts were holding that a single act of harassment could create a hostile environment and constitute sexual harassment, but the Eighth Circuit adhered to the more conservative rule that a multiple act pattern had to be proven. The only reason Clinton got the lawsuit thrown out of court was because conservative judges, the kind Hillary is filibustering, heard his case. And if he hadn't lied under oath he wouldn't have had to pay a dime to settle the case after Jones asked it be reinstated.

Don't forget the most important history book...Bartlett's Quotations, I believe WJC had three.

I never had sexual relations with that woman...
I did not inhale...
It all depends on what the meaning of the word is is...

Lies that have gone down in history. And we know they have because they are in Bartlett's now. Every generation until English changes too much will mark each of these quotes with...WEASEL. It's WJC's biggest problem and his third Legacy.

I don't know if there will ever be a way to make morons understand. carville put a bright red "it's just about sex" bow on that present, and it was enough for those who care only about how quickly and neatly problems can be tied up. It's just a shame that Republicans did not realize how completely the lie was bought. They gave the American Sheeple WAY too much credit for critical thinking skills. It's a real shame.

I predict history will not be kind to B.J. Clinton, despite their furious spinning. The facts are plain and accessible. After the present generation of liberal robots retire from history departments, revisionism will set in. Historians make their reputations by challenging the old conventional wisdom, not by "me too" writing.

A 500+ page biography? Hillary is in serious need of an editor.

If her father was that frugal, somehow I find him throwing toothpaste tubes out the bathroom window a "double standard" as well. Unless, of course, he threw it out the window, and then made the kids retrieve it.

As for Hillary chasing down "ghost voters"... What was she, 12 at the time? And she was given access to voter registration info?

"Clinton is blunt when she writes about ...."

The book was written by a ghost writer or ghost writers.

How could clinton "writes about" if she did not write the book.

The book is typical clinton. Everything they have has been stolen from the labor of other people.

We should all know and remember that the lying under oath about Monica charge was just one of MANY that the house managers had. the monica aspect was the LESSER charge of all.

Gephardt, as the leader of the house dems refused to consider any charge but the sex one.

They protected their own

Hyde was never under oath thworting a womans right to her day in court. Irononic isn't it. Hyde adulterous affair 25 years ago is relevent, but Juanita Broadwicks rape was called "Old News" by Susan Estridge on Hannity and Chimp!

...during the 1974 Richard Nixon impeachment--which she worked on as a Democratic staffer.

And here is more about this chapter of Hillary's life:

Hillary Rodham's 1974 Watergate "Procedures were Ethically Flawed"

By Jerry Zeifman

IN December 1974, as general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, I made a personal evaluation of Hillary Rodham (now Mrs. Clinton), a member of the staff we had gathered for our impeachment inquiry on President Richard Nixon. I decided that I could not recommend her for any future position of public or private trust.

I remember, cyn. Have it bookmarked.

Conservative radio hosts could use this Clinton spotlight to focus on the real legacy of Bill and Hillary: It's NOT the sex, it's the NATIONAL SECURITY.


Did you know that when Bill bombed the Sudanese aspirin factory in Aug. '98, it was on the basis of a sample from one cup of soil? He didn't even tell two of his own Joint Chiefs of Staff until after the bombing, and told the press there were things they couldn't know. Secretive, dishonest, shadow government = Clinton.

Creators Syndicate - www.creators.com 12/27/98 L. Brent Bozell III:

"Bill Clinton's decision to unleash the dogs of war as he tip-toes on the precipice of impeachment conjures up a vision of White House defense lawyer Greg Craig appearing before Congress declaring: "The President's military action was evasive, incomplete, misleading, even maddening - but it's not impeachable." There's no dodging the suspicion that Clinton is seeking to save his bacon by dropping some megatonnage on Saddam Hussein. After all, it's just what he did when he bombed Osama bin Laden's alleged facilities in Sudan and Afghanistan this summer. Both actions were launched with little or no consultation with Congress, and with too little consultation with the service chiefs at the Pentagon. Oh my, how the talking heads like Alan Dershowitz and NBC anchor-in-training Brian Williams are going nuts over that suggestion. How vile! How unpatriotic! What hypocrites. How about the Democrats? In 1983, Clinton defender John Conyers called for Reagan's impeachment for invading Grenada. (For good measure, he earlier called for impeachment over the Gipper's alleged "incompetence" in dealing with unemployment.) In 1984, as he ran for President, and again in 1986, Jesse Jackson suggested Reagan should be subject to an impeachment probe over U.S. actions in Nicaragua. Rep. Henry Gonzalez called for impeachment in 1983 over Grenada and again in 1987 over Iran-Contra. The National Organization for Women and the American Civil Liberties Union advocated impeaching Reagan in 1987. The major media didn't thump the tub for impeachment, but did suggest forcefully that Reagan's actions were even worse than the Watergate offenses that got Richard Nixon impeached. For example, in the January 9, 1984 New York Times, then-Senior Editor John B. Oakes proclaimed: "President Reagan's consistent elevation of militarism over diplomacy creates a clear and present danger to the internal and external security of the United States. Presidents have been impeached for less." Oakes wasn't alone at the Times. On December 12, 1986, columnist Tom Wicker offered an echo: "Mr. Reagan probably won't be impeached or forced to resign - though the offenses resulting from his policy, or his somnolence on the job, are more serious than any charge the House Judiciary Committee approved against Mr. Nixon.".So where are these noble folks today? Have you noticed how the words "War Powers Act" haven't been invoked much by the liberal media in the last, oh, six years, now that a President they favor is lobbing the bombs? Where are the calls for impeachment from John Conyers and Jesse Jackson? Where are the charges of abuse of power from the editorial pages of The New York Times and The Washington Post? Nothing but silence. Stinking dead silence.."

(July, '99) ''Osama!'' his son squealed excitedly. ''That's me!'' The boy, whose name was changed to Osama last year, is one of hundreds of Pakistani children named for bin Laden since Aug. 20, 1998 - the day the United States launched missile strikes against alleged terrorist camps run by the Saudi millionaire in eastern Afghanistan. The attack sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world. But the response was particularly heated in Pakistan, which sends thousands of Islamic guerrillas to similar training camps in Afghanistan. ''I love his bravery and gallantry,'' the boy's father, Niaz Ali Salar, said of bin Laden. ''He boosted the morale of Muslims throughout the world.'' The local leader of the radical Barelvi sect of Muslims, Salar said he hoped his son would ''live up to his name'' and lead the war against ''the enemies of Islam.'' In Mardan, a crumbling tobacco center 75 miles east of the Afghan border, Islamic priests deliver diatribes against ''evil America'' during Friday afternoon prayers.
In Pakistan, few buy Washington's vilification of bin Laden, whom it accuses of masterminding the Aug. 7, 1998, bombings of two US embassies in east Africa and several other terrorist attacks. ''He's a man on the run, whose only friends are the Taliban. How can he be a threat to the world's most powerful nation?'' said Sahib Zada Khalid Jan Binuri, head of Pakistan's most influential Islamic seminary. ''It's all spin control. If America tells me, `You are a terrorist,' what can I say?''  Link

"Soviet-style show trial procedure..."

The sheer audacity to state that Billy Jeffs so-called trial was 'Soviet Style' is particularly offensive.The wretched woman should be thanking Spineless Trent Lott for refusing to put on a real trial and saying there was only going to be a few witnesses, that eventually turned into a 1 day experience by Ken Starr.She should be beyond ecstatic, that the world hasn't been able to see all of those boxes of evidence against B.J.(that most of the Senators refused to look at, much less allow onto and into the permanent record) that reside in the national archives now. She truly is one seriously ungrateful,manipulative and divisive human.Hey, Ms. Rotten, can I read your College Thesis YET ???
