Prosecutors attack David Rosen's credibility
LOS ANGELES Hillary Rodham Clinton's former national finance adviser says he may have used bad judgment when he failed to report allowing a donor to pay a ten-thousand-dollar Beverly Hills hotel bill and loan him use of a Porsche.
But David Rosen says he never tried to hide anything.
Rosen said on the stand this morning that he thought use of Aaron Tonken's Porsche while he was in Los Angeles to help organize a lavish 2000 gala with Hollywood stars was a personal gift.
Rosen said, "I didn't think there was any campaign expense....if I executed poor judgment in that decision, I made a mistake but I certainly didn't intend to hide anything."
Use of the Porsche and hotel expenses were paid by Tonken, who was one of the organizers of the fund-raiser.
The federal prosecutor then asked Rosen whether it had occurred to him that someone giving a ten-thousand dollar gift would want something from him.
Rosen replied: "No."
I was there today. Rosen lied his *** off.
Thanks for the ping!
How did he appear? Does he have those Lanny Davis/Allen Colmes type weasel eyes?
He almost appeared arrogant on the stand. When sitting next to his counsel, however, he was nervously rubbing his fingers and hands. He knows he is in trouble.
If he didn't discuss THAT amount, what amount DID he discuss ?
"With the Clintons you have 2 choices: 1) rollover; 2)or be dead."
That's true enough! I wonder if anyone knows who their "hit man" is?
I've come to the conclusion that if you're not "somebody" the government doesn't care whether you're murdered or not. They put a price tag on everything, including murder, etc. If you've got enough money to pay some fancy pants attorney, you can get away with murder. Makes me wonder if Sosa's money isn't responsible for some of the mysterious deaths.
What a bunch of mobsters. The topless bar owner. The line of sleazy fund raisers. This was, by no means, the first. The cattle futures. The pardon-sold-to-crack-dealer. The pardon of FALN bomb terrorists for votes. The guvenatorial pardon of cocain dealer, Dan Lassiter. The prison blood scandal. The strange Waco killings of Clinton bodyguards. The rackateering investigation of Hugh Rodham. The stolen White House furniture. Nuclear treason for Chinese contributions. Vince Foster followed by Jerry Parks. The Brown Crash. The Travel Office scandal. And I'm just getting started!
Good post Libloather. Btw, you were here back in '99 -do you remember that full page chinagate ad in the Washington Times? Do you know how I can find a few of the threads pertaining to that ad as I'd like to review them/ bring them to the top for all to see since Hillary is in the limelight again. Thanks.
I doubt it, since they are used to this. Shameful behavior if you ask me.
Here's one version (excerpt):
An Irresponsible Congress
by William F. Jasper
On May 13, 1998 Representative Curt Weldon (R-PA) rose in the House of Representatives to address the matter of our national security and the Clinton Administrations transfer of missile technology to China: "Tonight, unfortunately, Mr. Speaker, I rise to talk about both of those issues, our national security and a scandal that is currently unfolding that I think will dwarf every scandal that we have seen talked about on this floor in the past six years. Mr. Speaker, this scandal involves potential treason, and if in fact the facts are true as they have been outlined in media reports, which we are currently trying to investigate, I think will require articles of impeachment."
Tough words. And they were echoed last August by House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-TX). "The more you look into this business of the transfer of advanced, sophisticated technology to the Chinese military, which seems to be clearly for campaign contributions," said Armey, "the harder it is to stay away from words like treason."
Other Republican leaders have weighed in with similarly ominous statements. Even Newt Gingrich sounded the alarm concerning presidential bribery and the compromise of our national security. "This has nothing to do with campaign finance," declared then-House Speaker Gingrich on May 19, 1998. "This has to do with national security. This is a profoundly deeper question than any other question that has arisen with this Administration."
Thank you Spirit and let me review this. bttt
I believe that this espionage case -- the Chinese -- is the worst in the history of this country. They got just about everything that we have and you'll see it in the out years in their development of their weapons.

BEIJING (Reuters) - China has launched its first manned space flight from the Gobi desert, Xinhua news agency says, in its bid to become the third country to put a man in orbit after the former Soviet Union and the United States.
The Shenzhou V, or "Divine Ship V", was expected to orbit the Earth 14 times before returning after about 21 hours.
Xinhua said the craft carried astronaut Yang Liwei, 38. The launch on Wednesday, 42 years after the Soviet Union put the first man into space, marked a milestone for China's secretive space programme, which analysts say has its sights set on a manned mission to the moon.
