  • Clinton has been burying emails since she was First Lady

    While the State Department’s own internal probe found former Secretary Hillary Clinton violated federal recordkeeping laws, it’s not the first time she and her top aides shielded her e-mail from public disclosure while serving in a government position. As first lady, Hillary was embroiled in another scheme to bury sensitive White House e-mails, known internally as “Project X.” In 1999, as investigators looked into Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate and other scandals involving the then-first lady, it was discovered that more than 1 million subpoenaed e-mails were mysteriously “lost” due to a “glitch” in a West Wing computer server. The massive hole...

    How could a suicide victim be found with TWO bullet wounds? As Donald Trump revives the two-decade old Vince Foster case, the charge that the cause of death of the top aide and close friend of the Clintons may not have been suicide has once again been dismissed as the stuff of “right-wing conspiracy theory.” But less than three months ago, WND reported a resignation letter surfaced from the lead investigator in independent counsel Robert Fiske’s investigation of the Foster case, Miguel Rodriguez, outlining evidence of his charge that the case was fixed. Thirteen years ago, WND reported Rodriguez, an...

    First lady Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday launched a vigorous counterattack on behalf of her husband's beleaguered presidency, declaring that the president is the victim of a "politically motivated" prosecutor allied with a "vast right-wing conspiracy." Using a nationally televised interview as her forum, she assumed a familiar and crucial role as Bill Clinton's first defender. She said she knew him better than anyone in the world, still loved him, and fully believed his denial of allegations that he had entered into a sexual relationship with a White House intern and had urged the young woman to lie about it.

    Dems’ Ex-Machina: Clinton Machine was Bill’s alone by Daniel Clark Anytime Hillary Clinton runs for office, we can count on political analysts to ask how her opponents will fare against the Clinton Machine. In reality, they don’t have to. There’s a reason it isn’t called the Rodham Machine. The Clinton Machine was Bill’s, and his alone. The Clinton Machine functioned as a synchronized effort among Bill’s perpetual campaign team, the Democratic Party and the media. This may sound simple, since they were in general political agreement to start with, but the system would have broken down if the messages being...

    In the years since their bitter battle, both former President Bill Clinton and independent counsel Ken Starr have predicted they’d be vindicated in the history books. Now the first definitive history of the Clinton scandal is about to arrive — and neither man can be completely happy about his portrayal in its pages. “The Death of American Virtue,” due out in February, asserts that Clinton had yet another extramarital affair, with Susan McDougal of Whitewater fame. Also in the book, Monica Lewinsky tells author Ken Gormley that she believes the president lied under oath when he described their encounters. At...

    SAN FRANCISCO - Lawyers for a death row inmate, including former Whitewater independent counsel Kenneth Starr, sent fake letters from jurors asking California’s governor to spare the man’s life, prosecutors said Friday. The jurors denied they thought Michael Morales deserved clemency because some of the testimony at his trial may have been fabricated, said Nathan Barankin, spokesman for Attorney General Bill Lockyer. “We showed each person the declaration on their behalf and they all said they didn’t say that,” Barankin said.

    So Bill Clinton has written a 957-page book about his life. It appears to be the literary equivalent of the movie "Airplane!" in which the main character, Ted Striker, kept trying to bore captive passengers with his life story, as they all killed themselves rather than listen to him drone on and on and on. Luckily, nobody actually has to read the entire Clinton memoirs. Nobody should, given Clinton's fathomless credibility problems. Millions of Clinton fans will buy it, and maybe one or two of them will even finish it. But let's be clear about this book. It's an opportunity to...

Hillary Clinton was willing to sacrifice her self-respect and her dignity to stay in a humiliating marriage to ex-President Clinton is a mystery no longer. She did it to save America. In her book "Living History," Mrs. Clinton recalls that after she learned about Monica Lewinsky, "I knew what I did and said in the next days and weeks would influence not just Bill's future and mine, but also America's." "Bill's Presidency, the institutional Presidency and the integrity of the Constitution hung in the balance," Hillary recalls,...

She got it through deception.

I was struck by the similarities between the Starr Inquisition and the way the Bushies "investigated" weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Starr and his office clung to the belief that the Clintons were devious criminal conspirators. “I think it was consistent throughout the office,” Sam Dash said. “Ken ultimately believed it himself. They said, [the Clintons are] powerful, they can cover up, they’re pressuring people to lie. We’re going to stay on it until we get it. It was a hypothesis.” But Starr had no evidence that the Clintons were...

But Clinton lectured Jennings on ABC's bias against him. Jennings had told the former President how a survey of historians had ranked him highly in some areas, but that "they gave you a 41st on moral authority." That prompted Clinton to launch into a rant against Ken Starr and the historians, but he maintained that "I don't really...

    In advance of this week's release of his 957-page memoir, former President Bill Clinton is already rewriting history. Most notably he has excoriated Ken Starr; a remarkable delusion on Clinton's part given that the former Whitewater special prosecutor arguably saved him from committing perjury before a federal grand jury. The spin began last week, with the former president telling USA Today that Starr was guilty of an "abuse of power" that "crushed innocents."

    A change in leadership certainly makes a difference. Past recent administrations at Baylor University in Waco have maintained sensible policies protecting scientific integrity against those who would force their dogmatic religious beliefs on unsuspecting students paying top dollar for higher education. The previous administrations have resisted efforts by some professors in the so-called "Intelligent Design" movement who sought to distort the principles of modern science to include religious teachings tantamount to creationist fundamentalism. Dr. Bob Marks is one of these professors in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department who has caused friction with the administration for promoting his Intelligent Design...

    WHAT'S ARABIC FOR 'YOU'RE NO ATTICUS FINCH'?March 10, 2010A group of "leading conservative lawyers" -- a phrase never confused with "U.S. Marines" -- has produced an embarrassingly pompous letter denouncing Liz Cheney for demanding the names of attorneys at the Justice Department who formerly represented Guantanamo detainees. The letter calls Cheney's demand "shameful," before unleashing this steaming pile of idiocy: "The American tradition of zealous representation of unpopular clients is at least as old as John Adams' representation of the British soldiers charged in the Boston Massacre." Yes, but even John Adams didn't take a job with the government for...

    Starr Critiques “Al Qaeda 7″ Ad Bethany Stotts, March 9, 2010 My column today deals with media coverage of the recent Keep America Safe (KAS) ad and the connections between the Little Rock, Fort Hood and Christmas Day attacks. For an alternate perspective, Pepperdine University’s Ken Starr recently appeared on Keith Olbermann’s Countdown (with a guest host). Author of the Starr Report and Dean of Pepperdine’s Law School, Starr said that it’s very important “for lawyers to be willing to take on unpopular causes,” making sure that power is checked and that there are arguments “advanced on behalf of those...

    Kenneth W. Starr, the former independent counsel whose work led to the impeachment of then-President Bill Clinton, was named president of Baylor University this morning, sources said. Starr’s appointment as president of Baylor brings a nationally known, but highly controversial figure to the Waco campus at a time of prolonged and occasionally tumultuous transition from a teaching school to one focused on research and the pursuit of a top-tier ranking among colleges nationally. It ends a nearly 20-month-long search that began when former Baylor President John M. Lilley was fired in July of 2008.

    As conservatives continued to attack outgoing Yale Law School Dean Harold Hongju Koh’s nomination to the Department of State last week, an endorsement came from the unlikeliest of people. In a speech at Yale Law School on Thursday, conservative icon Kenneth Starr announced his support for Koh before an audience of about 95 students and professors, two people in attendance said. The endorsement from Starr — whose report on the Monica Lewinsky scandal paved the way for the impeachment of President Bill Clinton LAW ’73 — comes as right-wing critics continue to allege that Koh will place international statutes above...
