Let’s start with a couple of premises. First, with all due respect to the hundreds of thousands of attorneys who take their job of representation seriously, it cannot be overlooked that an attorney’s primary purpose is to advocate for a price. In other words if you pay an attorney enough money or offer them a lucrative enough position they will work at building a believable case around any story no matter how far-fetched that story might be.
My second premise is that attorneys are rarely reckless. They know better than most that their every word “can and will be used against them in the court of law” or at the very least in the court of public opinion. So, a couple of pat answers you can expect to hear from good attorneys who find themselves on the proverbial hot seat are, “I don’t remember,” or “I can’t comment because this issue is part of an ongoing investigation,” or “that depends upon what the definition of is is,” or “what difference does it make?”
Unless of course there is an unknown “hot mike” nearby or a “whistleblower” who makes private comments public, then attorneys might have to destroy records and discredit credible witnesses or discredit records and destroy credible witnesses, whatever fits the case and so, I think, certain historical comments deserve independent investigation.
For example, it was on Sept 14, 2011 at Andrews Air Force Base, when the then Secretary-of-State Arkansas Attorney Hillary Clinton said “we’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing do to with.” These were the words used by Hillary Clinton to a group of bereaved attendees when the bodies of four Americans killed in Benghazi were returned to their families for proper burial. Those were specific words, prepared in advance, made when the still active Benghazi investigation was as fresh as the grief that gripped our Nation for what was immediately known to be a well-planned terrorist attack that occurred on the anniversary of the second American “date that will live in infamy” – the September 11, 2001 destruction of the two towers of the New York World Trade Center.
If dissected properly those remarks become three separate attorney comments: 1) a specific reference to “the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi” 2) the statement “rage and violence directed at American embassies [generally speaking] … over a video” and 3) “we had nothing to do with it.” How very impressive that Arkansas Attorney Hillary Clinton moved from a specific event to a general reference to a claim of innocence in one breath with specificity and generality masked as one. Of course the media let her get away with it.
Can it be said that where there are trends there are truths? Well, we could study the detailed accounts of real life murders that rival the brilliant fictional work of Agatha Christie but who has the time? http://theblacksphere.net/2013/10/47-bodies-left-in-the-wake-of-hillary-clinton-part-i/
Or we could contemplate the words of Sander Hicks a self proclaimed “lifelong independent media activist” (with a decidedly leftist tinge) in an article published on February 8, 2008 entitled Hillary’s Secrets where he states that, “Whether it’s her background at the Rose Law Firm, her role in the Clinton White House pardons, her little-known testimony at the Iran/Contra hearings, or her silence about the suspicious death of friend Vince Foster, Hillary’s ability to keep secrets from the public has been her political currency. Secrets are the source of her power.”
He continues by saying that, “Bill Clinton was so enthusiastic about pardoning, the Clintons transformed the standard process into a maddening frenzy of get-out-of-jail-free passes for their friends.
According to Barbara Olson’s book The Final Days, “Phones rang constantly, as if the White House was conducting some kind of pardon telethon… The mounting cases led to friction with pardon attorneys at the Justice Department. The White House resolved this by simply bypassing the Department of Justice altogether.” http://rense.com/general80/hll.htm Hmm, it seems that big government power players still enjoy bypassing powerful constitutional government entities when the mood strikes them.
Oh by the way that is the same Barbara Olson, author of the well-documented book called, “Hell to Pay: The unfolding story of Hillary Rodham Clinton” who tragically died in the aforementioned terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. http://www.theguardian.com/news/2001/sep/14/guardianobituaries.september111
If we had the time or inclination we could go back even further to the shady shores of Whitewater, Arkansas to see that shady is as shady does, but suffice it to say that on June 18, 1996 a Senate Special Whitewater Committee issues an 800-page majority report that spoke of the Clinton Administration as “an American presidency [that] misused its power, circumvented the limits on its authority and attempted to manipulate the truth” and the committee report identified then First Lady Arkansas Attorney Hillary Clinton as “ … “the central figure” in all aspects of the alleged wrongdoings.” http://whatreallyhappened.org/RANCHO/POLITICS/WW/white.html
Oh, and remember the May of 1994 federal grand jury subpoena for Rose Law Firm Madison Guaranty records that were not found until January of 1996 at the Clinton’s private residence with Hillary’s and Vince Foster’s fingerprints on them – yep, that’s Hillary’s partner Vince Foster, who had “committed suicide” in 1993? http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/arkansas/docs/recs.html
Whatever you wish to think about the now long ago death of Vince Foster, then Clinton buddy and Assistant Attorney General Webster Hubbell had this to say on July 20, 1993: “Don’t believe a word you hear. It was not suicide. It couldn’t have been.” http://www.realnews247.com/the_death_of_vincent_foster.htm
It was just a couple of months ago when interviewed on ABC News (December 18, 2013) that Arkansas Attorney Hillary Clinton said to Barbara Walters, “… I could go on and on (but) I think we ought to pay attention to what’s happening right now…” http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Clinton2016fascinatingwalters/2013/12/19/id/542821#ixzz2tP6W9lyk
Yes, I could go on and on too (but) I think we ought to pay attention to what happened in history.
