Perhaps all of this practice accounts for how good she’s become at it, and why violating the Constitution doesn’t appear to bother her conscience.
In her younger days, Clinton served as an attorney during the Watergate investigation, but was apparently fired for her bad behavior.
Jerry Zeifman, described as a lifelong Democrat, served as Clinton’s supervisor and gave her the boot immediately after the investigation concluded. He was so dissatisfied with Hillary’s performance that he also refused to give her a good recommendation.
When pressed for reasons as to why he fired her, Zeifman said it was because she was a liar, completely unethical, dishonest, and conspired to violate the Constitution.
Apparently not much as changed with Clinton over the years.
How could a 27-year-old House staff member do all that? She couldn’t do it by herself, but Zeifman said she was one of several individuals – including Marshall, special counsel John Doar and senior associate special counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum – who engaged in a seemingly implausible scheme to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation.
Why would they want to do that? Because, according to Zeifman, they feared putting Watergate break-in mastermind E. Howard Hunt on the stand to be cross-examined by counsel to the president. Hunt, Zeifman said, had the goods on nefarious activities in the Kennedy Administration that would have made Watergate look like a day at the beach – including Kennedy’s purported complicity in the attempted assassination of Fidel Castro.
The actions of Hillary and her cohorts went directly against the judgment of top Democrats, up to and including then-House Majority Leader Tip O’Neill, that Nixon clearly had the right to counsel. Zeifman says that Hillary, along with Marshall, Nussbaum and Doar, was determined to gain enough votes on the Judiciary Committee to change House rules and deny counsel to Nixon. And in order to pull this off, Zeifman says Hillary wrote a fraudulent legal brief, and confiscated public documents to hide her deception.
The brief involved precedent for representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding. When Hillary endeavored to write a legal brief arguing there is no right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding, Zeifman says, he told Hillary about the case of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, who faced an impeachment attempt in 1970.
Hillary has proven throughout her career that lying to get ahead is her personal strategy for success. The problem is this strategy has reached beyond the realm of politics and has caused four Americans to lose their lives.
Whether it’s her role in attempting to deny President Nixon his right to counsel, or covering up a terrorist attack to boost the sitting president’s chances of reelection, she needs to be prosecuted and brought to justice.
