    Clinton's records vanished after warning May 12, 2008 By Jerry Seper - Hillary Rodham Clinton's Rose Law Firm billing records, found in the White House residence in January 1996 two years after they had been subpoenaed by government regulators, disappeared shortly after the first lady was warned that the firm's billing problems were "very serious" and the then-ongoing Whitewater investigation could result in criminal charges, newly obtained records show. More than 1,100 pages of grand jury testimony, investigative reports, memos, charging documents, chronologies, narratives and draft indictments, previously undisclosed but now being "processed" at the Library of Congress, say Mrs....

    ....And that, officers and gentlemen, is Hillary Clinton in a nutshell. She’s not going to quit because she has nowhere else to go, and nothing else to do. She lives for this, and without it, she has no life. In fact, without it, she doesn’t exist at all..... ~~~~~~ ...So, as much as it pains me to say it, Hillary ain’t dropping out, not if she’s the man I think she is. After all, what has she got to lose by staying in? Bill’s legacy is already etched in stone: impeachment, the Marc Rich pardon and, nine months after he...

    Archivists say the former first lady's documents at her husband's presidential library won't be released until after the '08 vote. LITTLE ROCK, ARK -- . - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton cites her experience as a compelling reason voters should make her president, but nearly 2 million pages of documents covering her White House years are locked up in a building here, obscuring a large swath of her record as first lady. Clinton's calendars, appointment logs and memos are stored at her husband's presidential library, in the custody of federal archivists who do not expect them to be released until after...

    When Don Imus was fired in the wake of his April 4th “nappy-headed ho’s” remarks about the Rutgers University women’s basketball team, a great deal of attention was focused, appropriately, on the influence of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton...The real guiding hand over Imus’ downfall, however, belonged neither to Sharpton nor Jackson, but to Hillary Rodham Clinton. This is not widely understood, because Mrs. Clinton’s pristine fingerprints were kept off her victim by the intercession of a velvet glove called Media Matters for America, the organization responsible for setting in motion the chain of events that eventually brought down Imus....

    A wide gulf has opened between presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton and her old employer, the Rose Law Firm — to the apparent satisfaction of both sides. Clinton does not make a single mention of the firm on her Web sites. And even though she is arguably the firm’s most famous ex-employee, Rose does not mention Hillary on its Web site either. Clinton joined Rose in 1976, becoming the venerable firm’s first full female partner in 1979, and she continued to work for Rose after husband Bill became governor of Arkansas. But in many minds Rose became inexorably linked to the...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – When Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) addresses some 4,000 Democrats at the Alltel Arena here Saturday night, she’ll be less than a mile away from her old office at the Rose Law Firm. But judging by the fact that she doesn’t mention the blue-chip firm at all on her websites, she is putting a lot more distance between herself and Rose.

    New York senator trying to distance herself from chain. With retailer Wal-Mart under fire for its labor and healthcare policies, one Democrat with ties to the company, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, has started feeling her share of the political heat. Clinton served on Wal-Mart's board of directors for six years when her husband was governor of Arkansas. And the Rose Law Firm, where she was a partner, handled many of the Arkansas-based company's legal affairs. Hillary Clinton had kind words for Wal-Mart as recently as 2004, when she told an audience at the convention of the National Retail Federation that...

    Drawing on a trove of private papers from Hillary Clinton’s best friend, the legendary Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein is to publish a hard-hitting and intimate portrait of the 2008 presidential candidate, which will reveal a number of “discrepancies” in her official story. Bernstein, who was played by Dustin Hoffman in the film All the President’s Men, has spent eight years researching the unauthorised 640-page biography, A Woman in Charge: The Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton. “Bernstein reaches conclusions that stand in opposition to what Senator Clinton has said in the past and has written in the past,” said Paul Bogaards,...

    The public-interest group Judicial Watch has released the results of a nationwide poll that indicates nearly half of likely American voters are worried about corruption in the White House if Hillary Clinton becomes the next U.S. president. Judicial Watch conducted the poll in partnership with Zogby International. A total of 38 percent of those polled were Democrats, 36 percent were Republicans, and 26 percent were Independents. Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton says the results of the poll were quite revealing. "Forty-five percent [of the respondents] are concerned or very concerned about Hillary Clinton corruption and that there will be high...

But 16 months after the library began accepting applications for material, no major requests for sensitive documents related to Hillary Clinton’s years as first lady have been honored, a Newsday investigation found.

    An upcoming book by a longtime Democratic insider asserts that Sen. Hillary Clinton is “ethically unfit” to hold public office. The author of the book is Jerry Zeifman, who was counsel to the House Judiciary Committee for 17 years. He was chief counsel to the committee during the Watergate episode, a role he chronicled in an earlier book, “Without Honor: The Crimes of Camelot and the Impeachment of President Nixon.” Hillary was a committee staffer at the time. And Zeifman’s new book “Hillary’s Pursuit of Power” is based in large part on his personal experiences with Hillary. A press release...

Before a standing-room-only audience in a ballroom of the Sheraton hotel in midtown Manhattan, Mrs. Clinton gave opening remarks at the conference session “Women and the Power of Economic Opportunity” then moderated a panel that included President Bush’s former secretary of agriculture and three leaders in the development and anti-poverty fields. “Far too many women are...

    ABC has changed its "The Path to 9/11" television special, set for a commercial-free broadcast Sunday and Monday, because of pressure over the message it carries, according to a report on a television blog site. The network heard from a number of leading political figures, many of them Democrats, who complained of alleged inaccuracies and bias in the production, according to the report in the Los Angeles Times' CalendarLive.com website. The report said the five-hour docudrama also is in the middle of an information war between a left-wing organization that wants changes made in the film and conservative blogs defending...

Clinton pointedly refuted several fictionalized scenes that he claims insinuate he was too distracted by the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal to care about bin Laden and that a top adviser pulled the plug on CIA operatives who were just moments away from bagging the terror master, according to a letter to ABC boss Bob Iger obtained by The Post.

    THE charge against US senator Hillary Clinton is that she cannot keep the same position on an issue. She has faced that accusation on predictable, national subjects such as Iraq and taxes. As a story unfolding in Brooklyn reveals, the senator is also capable of turning on the smallest of items. Even, it seems, on a single patch of grass. Brooklyn loves green things — recall the novel, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. Yet the borough is chronically short of green. Brooklynites watched for decades as the bits of lawn around Manhattan’s Battery Park City spread north, so that now...

But 49 percent of Democrats think Clinton can't win a general election. "That's a huge number," said pollster Tom Riehle, who explained he asked that question because Clinton's biggest barrier to winning the Democratic nomination is the wide belief in...

The following year, she was the first girl to ever run for the office of President of Student Council. She did not even make it through the Primary vote to the general election, which was ultimately won by the captain of the football team. To this day, she looks at her failure as a learning experience: “I was just ahead of my time. I was a militant feminist when the political climate...

    Hillary Clinton is most certainly not the scheming, bitter, partisan portrayed in Dick Morris and Eileen McGann's bestselling book "Condi vs Hillary," which the New York Times derides in a Sunday book review as "a Fox News fairy tale." Times Washington correspondent Robin Toner insists that the Morris-McGann tome is more parody than reality, dismissing their claims that Hillary is filled with "rage" at Republicans; along with the assertion that Clinton, "at her core . . . believes in income redistribution." So when Mrs. Clinton bellows - as she did at a Democratic fundraiser in 2003 - that she's "sick...

    Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., has all the hallmarks of a clearcut favorite to win the Democratic nomination for president in 2008. She enjoys nearly universal name recognition, focuses on high-profile issues and, perhaps most importantly, has the ability to raise a lot of cash. But there is a massive amount of ground to cover before she can allow visions of settling back into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. to dance in her head. First up is her Senate reelection campaign. In a development that could spice up the 2006 race, two antiwar candidates have announced they will challenge Clinton for the Democratic...

    JERUSALEM (AP) - Former President Clinton said in an interview Friday that he believes his wife would do a better job than he did in the nation's highest office. New York Sen. Hillary Clinton has not said whether she plans to run in 2008. Nonetheless, her husband told Israel's Channel Two television that her experience as first lady would help make her a strong president. "In some ways she would be (better) because of what we did together," he said from New York. "First, she has the Senate experience I didn't have. Second, she would have had the eight years...

    RUSH: We finally have the press release which has been made public here by the independent counsel, Patrick Fitzgerald -- who, by the way, the liberals, the Democrats are all calling him "Elliott Ness." He's an Elliott Ness out there. What does that mean? It means that Al Capone is in the White House. These terms here are not accidentally chosen. It's a five-count indictment, one count object construction of justice, two counts of lying to investigators, and two counts of perjury. Five-count (interruption). What? It's Libby. Yeah, this is Libby. It's the only one that there's any mention of...

    Clinton Camp Denies Planting Pirro Mob-Tie Reports * Daily News, Observer Ran Reports on Friday Aug 12, 2005 4:12 pm US/Eastern (AP) A top aide to potential Republican challenger Jeanine Pirro accused Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's camp on Friday of being the source of reports the Westchester County district attorney had taken campaign donations from firms with alleged ties to mobsters. That charge was called "baseless'' by both a top Clinton aide and by state Democratic Chairman Herman Farrell. The exchange came in the wake of a report Thursday on the weekly New York Observer's political Web site, The Politicker,...

    This summer, Hillary Clinton is reportedly rolling in dough. New York's junior senator has amassed a $12.6 million war chest for her re-election bid next year, raising half that amount from April to June alone. Clinton's latest campaign reports, filed on July 15 with the Federal Election Commission, became public on July 28. Her second-quarter contributions totaled $6,108,413. Combined with interest and refunds, the campaign took in a total of $6,145,305 during the period. More than $5.8 million came from individuals—65,691 in total. Those filings sprawl across hundreds of pages, so finding out exactly where her money came from in...

    Hillary Clinton wants to be the darling of the left and the candidate of the center, and why not? More than any other Democrat, save one—her husband—she knows what it takes to win, and she fully and completely comprehends the opposition. Liberals went ballistic this week when Clinton called for a ceasefire among Democrats at a much ballyhooed appearance before the DLC, the centrist Democratic Leadership Council that helped elect her husband president. Clinton’s “Rodney King Moment,” is all about 2008, says a former John Kerry adviser: “What she’s saying is, ‘Why can’t we all get along and support me?’”...

    TEN years ago, Kevin Costner's career took a turn for the worse when he made a hugely expensive film called ''Waterworld.'' Since then, the film has become synonymous with megalomania, hubris and all the other fancy words that journalists like to use when things fall apart and the center will not hold. But unlike his other movies ''Wyatt Earp'' and ''The Postman,'' which are really bad, ''Waterworld'' is simply a dumb, expensive dud, not an epic, studio-imploding disaster on the order of ''Heaven's Gate'' or ''Battlefield Earth.'' If you are in the market for a truly horrendous movie, one of...

    The mastermind of Hillary Clinton's successful 2000 Senate race is urging the Democratic Party's liberal wing not to be upset over her alliance with the moderate Democratic Leadership Council, assuring critics that Hillary is still a left-winger at heart. "It's much more important to look at what she does and how she votes, and not that she has associated herself with the DLC," Harold Ickes told the Washington Times on Friday. Ickes reminded that Bill Clinton also came under fire from party liberals for his more centrist rhetoric. But they stuck with him because "his record in totality was extraordinarily...

    HILLARY'S SECRET WAR The Clintons’ enemy list Posted: July 19, 20051:00 a.m. Eastern Editor's note: The following is an eye-opening look into New York Times best-selling author Richard Poe's revealing book, "Hillary's Secret War." Whereas Edward Klein's book on the New York senator reveals previously unknown aspects of her personal life, Poe's expose focuses on how Hillary Clinton and the left's "shadow government" have labored to put her and her far-left agenda in the White House by controlling the still-uncensored flow of real news to Americans – via the Internet.If that sounds too fantastic to be true, read on....

    It is precisely Hillary’s penchant for witch hunts and enemy lists, as revealed, for instance, in the Filegate and Travelgate scandals, which disqualify her from high office, Klein argues. Unfortunately, that same Machiavellian ruthlessness may well carry her to victory in 2008...
