Sen Clinton says White House should turn over Enron documents

Sen. Clinton says White House should turn over Enron documents By SHANNON McCAFFREY Associated Press Writer January 22, 2002, 12:13 PM EST WASHINGTON -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, who as first lady fought her share of battles over the release of documents, said Vice President Dick Cheney should release records Congress is seeking on the administration's energy policy meetings and Enron. "I think the request from the Congress should be dealt with," the New York Democrat told The Associated Press. She said the Clinton White House "certainly ended up dealing with a lot of requests and at the end of the day people could draw their own conclusions and I think that's what the public deserves." President Clinton and the first lady were investigated frequently by Congress on issues ranging from their failed Whitewater land deal, firings in the White House travel office and the president's affair with intern Monica Lewinsky. Prosecutors and congressional investigators were met with varying degrees of cooperation from the Clintons. Whitewater-related billing records from Hillary Clinton's Rose Law Firm were discovered by an aide in the White House living quarters some two years after they had first been subpoenaed. Cheney has said he met half dozen times with Enron executives while formulating the Republican administration's energy plan but has refused to turn over records of those and his other meetings on the plan. Last week, Clinton said she was donating almost $8,000 in contributions from Enron and its accounting firm Arthur Andersen LLP to an employee fund set up to help Enron employees. Clinton received $950 from Enron employees, according to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics. Her office said she also received $7,000 in donations from employees of Arthur Andersen.

She said the Clinton White House "certainly ended up dealing with a lot of requests and at the end of the day people could draw their own conclusions and I think that's what the public deserves."

At the end of the day, the conclusion I drew was that when it came to stone walls, the Clinton administration put up a bigger one than China has.

This is the woman that watched as Vince Fosters office was emptied. This woman watched as Democrats donors fled the country when subpoenaed by congress. She watched as whitehouse staffers memories became muddled and hazy under questioning from congress. Let her reveal the lists on Commerce trip aircraft trips for her husband and how much each seat on the Ron Brown trips cost Enron and many others. Did Hillary Clinton charge corporations $50,000 per seat on Commerce trips and slide it into her husbands election? Let us have the Senator Hillary information first. We have been waiting for years. In other words..you first Hillary...

Shredding, lying and deleting entire computer systems while under subpoena is nothing new to any Clinton staffer or cabinet member.

Enron learned from the Clinton whitehouse how it is done.

A question has come up at work and a Hillary thread should be a good place to ask.

Did Hillary actually call for repealing and/or deferring the remainder of the tax cuts, or has she just grumbled about them without being specific about repeal? I.e., is she being an honest liberal on this, like Ted Kennedy (give him his due), or a doubletalker, like Daschle?

Anyone have a link to her statement on this? Thanks.

". . . the Clinton White House certainly ended up dealing with a lot of requests and at the end of the day people could draw their own conclusions and I think that's what the public deserves."

At the end of the day, I'd say this statement is one of the most pointless, meaningless things I've ever heard. Notice how she somehow managed to say absolutely nothing here.

Remember the press conference she held after Pardongate? Rush made a great montage of her answers.

One can count of Hillary to speak up on topics for which she is the best example of the opposite.

Gee, Hillary, could you be more stupid? New Yorkers should be ashamed of themselves for electing the dishonest duo of Senators.

Heck, I would be even happier if the White House turned over THE CLINTON PAPERS and evidence they are sitting on, thus protecting Klink from prosecution! (Does the term "Aegean stables" ring a bell?) First things first -- THEN we can deal with any improprieties which may have occurred in the current administration.

This has probably been discussed in great detail on other threads, but why doesn't the vice-president release his papers? If there is nothing controversial, it would greatly benefit him and would be the antithesis of the Clinton administration....

Sen Clinton says White House should turn over Enron documents

"Senator" Hitlery Clinton wrote the book about document release delay, shredding, perjury under oath, document 'misplacement', and etcetera.

George W. Bush should read that book and follow all the advice contained therein.

Cheney is trying to defend the principle that the Executive Branch is entitled to meet with people and not have the details made public. If the Executive Branch can't have private discussions, then many of those discussions will never occur, and that's not a good thing. It's all embodied in Executive Privilege, and Cheney doesn't feel like compromising that away just because some Democrats want to make political hay out of it.

The truth is, Hillary and her cohorts probably don't want the details revealed, because there wouldn't be anything of interest revealed. They like making a stink about it far more.

Yes, they should check the table in the third-floor book room of the White House residence for the documents in oh, say, about a year or 2.

Thought I heard Mary Matalin say that they would turn over the records to a committee, if they were subpoenaed.I think that the WH wants a legal reason to turn over the records, not a Dem fishing expedition.They don't want to set a precedent which would allow Waxman and Hillary to demand every memo on WH operations, to use for political purposes.

It's the principle of the thing. The Commission was working for the President-- offering him advice and information. The President has a right to keep those things private (separation of powers). Dubya wants to keep the power he has and not give it to Congress on principle-- even if it looks bad.

As always, I believe Hillary has said nothing of substance on the tax cuts, grumbling about them, but never suggesting they be repealed.

She doesn't take stands on issues.

Exactly. The White House should turn over ALL the papers, that is, if they can find them. It's such a huge place and things do have a habit of getting lost.

BTW, I'd love to see Bill's medical records.

Absolutely. The Hildebeast is STILL sitting on the subpoened documents from all those illegal conferences she had on that ill-advised health care plan. Remember?

She is too funny-the woman who had the rose law firm SHRED documents, the woman who made ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND on a 1000 dollar investment, the woman who did not have ANY idea where the billing office records were and then they suddenly turned up in the WH private living quarters, the woman who ordered that NO ONE could go in to Vince Foster's office after his death (until her minions cleared it out, that is) and the woman who REFUSED all out press interviews while running her campaign for NY wants someone in THIS administration to turn over documents??? Oh ROFLMAO!

Hey, Hillary, let's investigate the $3 billion deal that the Clinton administration swung for Enron to build a power plant in India, and the $100,000 that Enron gave to the Democratic Party as the deal was being finalized.

A little disappointing that it took 18 replies to this thread before someone--without issuing qualifying comments or snide remarks--simply acknowledged that Sen. Clinton is 100% correct in requesting release of the information in question.

Her hypocrisy in this matter is well-noted, but does not detract one bit from what the administration is (or isn't) making public.

Bob Novak is right--the "Arrogance of Power" exhibited by this and other stonewalling tactics is unbecoming an otherwise ethically-sound administration.
