Integrity Challenged Challenges Integrity

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/04/25

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is up to her old tricks. In a congressional hearing, Clinton returned to her defensive boxing skills, shucking and jiving in an effort to avoid the body-blows. When reminded that former Vice President Cheney has requested the rest of the memos released and asked if they would be released, Hillary questioned Cheney’s integrity. Obviously, that was not the question and the congressman did not give her a pass.

He said he was not concerned whether she trusted Cheney’s honesty but whether she would answer the congressman’s question. Would the memos be released? Her response? She would support the President’s decision. Would she advise the President to release them? She said she wasn’t going to tell the hearing what she would advise the President and she didn’t know enough.

I find it quite rich that Hillary Clinton, of all people, would have the audacity to question anyone’s integrity, considering her history.

According to the Progressive Review:

The documents, reviewed by The Washington Times, identify numerous instances in which prosecutors questioned Mrs. Clinton’s honesty. . .

For instance, the papers say prosecutors thought Mrs. Clinton first concealed her legal representation of Madison Guaranty Savings and Loan Association – and the money she made doing it – during the 1992 presidential campaign when she and her husband, then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, came under fire in a questionable Arkansas real estate project known as Whitewater.

Beginning in March 1992 and continuing over the next several years, Mrs. Clinton steadfastly denied that she ever “earned a penny” in representing her Rose Law Firm clients, including the failing thrift’s owners, James and Susan McDougal – the Clintons’ partners in the Whitewater Development Corp. project.

But the newly discovered records, more than 1,100 pages in 30 separate documents, tell a different story.

A June 1998 draft indictment of Mrs. Clinton’s Rose firm partner Webster L. Hubbell, who followed the Clintons to Washington in 1993 as associate attorney general, said Mrs. Clinton did legal work for Madison “continuously” from April 1985 to July 1986. It also said she represented the thrift before the Arkansas Securities Department for approval to issue preferred stock, helped Madison obtain a questionable broker-dealer license to sell the stock and was actively involved in a failed Madison project known as Castle Grande.

I suggest reading the entire article. I also suggest reading another article from The Progressive Review in it’s entirety.

Number of times that Clinton figures who testified in court or before Congress said that they didn’t remember, didn’t know, or something similar.

There is an obvious difficulty with integrity where Hillary Clinton is involved.

And recordings of election year 2000 Hillary Clinton felonies:
