    BACKGROUND: http://hillcap.org NEW YORK SUN ARTICLE, Feb. 2005 Pursuant to the above referenced article, Aaron Tonken was wearing a government wire for evidence gathering in the Hillary campaign finance fraud that began in 2000 and continues to this day. When discovery in Paul v Clinton finally begins later this year, much light is going to be shed on those who want certain information to remain hidden. When the Paul and Clinton saga began, Ed Rendell was then the chairman of the DNC. On Jan. 31, 2003, he was sworn in as Governor of Pennsylvania. Overlooked in any of the mainstream...

It was Raymond Reggie, a New Orleans businessman and Democratic activist who happened to be Sen. Edward Kennedy's brother-in-law. He also happened to be in a lot of trouble.

    Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday refused to answer questions about the indictment last week of her 2000 Senate campaign finance director. Clinton's former aide, David Rosen, was charged with filing false reports to the Federal Election Commission to cover up the true cost of a lavish Hollywood fund-raiser held on Clinton's behalf Aug. 12, 2000. When asked about Rosen by reporters at a press conference, Clinton said: "I have nothing to add to the statement that was issued last week." In that statement, released Friday night, Clinton's lawyer, David Kendall, said the senator's camp believed Rosen would be cleared once...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's former campaign finance director pleaded not guilty Monday to federal charges he deliberately underreported the amount raised at a Hollywood gala for the senator in 2000. David Rosen, 40, of Chicago was released for a trial March 22 in Los Angeles. But his attorney, Paul Mark Sandler, said he planned to ask that the case be moved to Washington. Rosen is charged with four counts of filing false reports with the Federal Election Commission. Each count carries up to five years in prison and $250,000 in fines. Sandler said after the hearing...

    U.S. Defends Sealing Charges Against Former Clinton Aide By IAN URBINA Published: March 2, 2005 Correction Appended Federal prosecutors are battling attempts to dismiss their criminal case against Hillary Rodham Clinton's former fund-raising director, claiming in a court motion that they kept the indictment of him secret for more than a year to protect the identity of a witness cooperating in a separate investigation. The defendant, David Rosen, is charged with failing to report in-kind contributions and producing a false invoice in connection with an Aug. 12, 2000, fund-raiser for Mrs. Clinton, according to an indictment unsealed in January.

    A Democratic fund-raiser involved in Senator Clinton's 2000 campaign has offered a guilty plea to bank fraud charges and is likely to become a government witness at the upcoming federal trial of a top finance aide to Mrs. Clinton, David Rosen, court records obtained by The New York Sun show. As part of an FBI investigation into alleged campaign finance reporting violations by Mrs. Clinton's campaign, the mystery witness secretly taped a conversation with Mr. Rosen in September 2002 and apparently tried to elicit statements from the former Clinton staffer about financial irregularities involving an August 2000 Hollywood fund-raising event....

    Sen. Ted Kennedy's brother-in-law is the mystery witness who raised $100,000 for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and then went undercover and wore a wire to help the feds nab one of her top moneymen on charges of fund-raising-fraud, The Post has learned. The witness, Ray Reggie, 43, has a sister, Victoria, who married Kennedy in 1992, and prosecutors say Reggie secretly recorded "incriminating" statements made by David Rosen, a top Clinton fund-raiser. Reggie was close enough to Bill and Hillary Clinton to sleep over at the White House in 2000 and stay up chatting with the first couple into the...

    FReepers, it is an amazing thing to witness. I'm about an hour from Los Angeles and plan to go to the David Rosen trial on Tuesday. I have been on the phone calling radio news stations and local TV affiliates in Los Angeles to see if they were covering the story. No one knows about the story. How can that be possible? Not even KFWB knows, the main news radio station in Los Angeles. The mainstream media is going to have to be dragged kicking and screaming into covering this story. It has the potential to derail Queen Hillary's run...

    May 10, 2005 -- THE Justice Department case against David Rosen, national finance chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2000 Senate race, is getting stronger, increasing the odds the aide will start cooperating with the government — which could be disastrous for the senator's ambitions. Rosen has been indicted for deliberately reporting that the cost of an August 2000 Hollywood fund-raising gala was only $400,000 when the actual tab was $1.2 million — a step that let Mrs. Clinton spend $800,000 more in "hard money" for her campaign. (After Hillary and opponent Rick Lazio agreed to ban soft money, both camps were...
