Hillary Fired For Lies and Unethical Behavior

Watergate committee staff boss: Hillary was fired for lies, unethical behavior

by Jerry Zeifman

Zeifman is a life-long Democrat, served for 17 years as Counsel to the House Judiciary Committee, and is the author of Without Honor: Crimes of Camelot and Impeachment of President Clinton (1995) and Hillary’s Pursuit of Power (2007)

This is also his website

I have just seen Hillary Clinton and her former Yale law professor both in tears at a campaign rally here in my home state of Connecticut. Her tearful professor said how proud he was that his former student was likely to become our next President. Hillary responded in tears.

My own reaction was of regret that, when I terminated her employment on the Nixon impeachment staff, I had not reported her unethical practices to the appropriate bar associations.

Hillary as I knew her in 1974

Here is the abbreviated version of Hillary's shenanigans when she was working for the House Judiciary Committee

Hillary Rodham gets a spot on the legal staff of the House Judiciary Committee upon the recommendation of a lawyer pal of Ted Kennedy.

* The man who hires Hillary is Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat.

* The House Judiciary Committee is investigating Richard Nixon with an eye on impeachment.

* A question arises as to whether or not Nixon is legally entitled to counsel during the investigation. If so, his council would be allowed to cross examine witnesses appearing before the panel.

* The concern about having counsel for Nixon cross examine witnesses centered on E. Howard Hunt. Democrats on the committee feared that Nixon's counsel would elicit information from Hunt that would be very damaging to the Kennedys.

* Zeifman tells Hillary that Nixon is entitled to counsel. He cites documents in the committee's public file referencing the fact that Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas had representation four years earlier while he was being investigated.

* Hillary removes the documents from the committees public file and places them under lock and key in her office where they are not available for media or public scrutiny.

* Hillary then prepares a brief for filing with a federal judge which falsely states that there is no precedent for an official being investigated by the committee to have legal representation during that investigation.

* Nixon resigns before Hillary has a chance to submit the brief in which she makes knowingly false claims.

* Zeifman then fires Hillary. Hillary asks for a letter of recommendation. Zeifman says no. This was only the third time in Zeifman's 17 years with the committee that he had refused a letter of recommendation.

* Zeifman told Dan Calabrese that if Hillary had actually submitted the brief she most likely would have been disbarred.

Two decades later Bill Clinton became President. As was later to be described in the Wall Street Journal by Henry Ruth-the lead Watergate courtroom prosecutor- "The Clintons corrupted the soul of the Democratic Party."


Wild Thing's comment........

Note to Jerry Zeifman. Do not get on small aircraft. Do not get near Ft Marcy Park. Ensure you have a food taster in your party.

This came out right after Clinton got elected the first time, but as usual the media ignored it. I am glad it is being brought up maybe some people will finally see that Hillary cannot become President. We need to never again see Bill or Hillary in our White House.

We are at war, right here, at home, for the very heart and soul of all that we love and cherish.

Democrat politicians, their supporters, and their operatives could not be lower or more disgusting in the opinions of honest, decent people.

Yep--Zeifman should have followed through and got her disbarred.
This actually proves what a criminal she is and how we should NOT trust her, along with other things.
(Vince Foster, blood doesn't run uphill).
She even has her mother fooled.

The truth is no longer shocking because of the lack of ethics in the Democrat party and the media. They are gangsters on a self legitimzed landscape. Thank you for posting this, it just might bring a leftie to it's senses.

Sadly, all three presidential candidates are documented liars. They serve primarily only their own selfish, ambitious selves. We are in for four very rough years. Integrity in at least two of the three Federal Branches will be close to non existant. If one of the Dems gets to the White House and selects a couple of SCOTUS judges, that Branch will also be lost to the Constitution.

Here is a fitting tribute to the Clinton matriarch

and her offspring.

Lynn, he her mom too must have blindfolds on.

2bornot2b?, yes and she would win the prize at getting away with her lies. I would not be able to sleep at night even with one whopper of a lie on my conscience.

Jack maybe it will matter but like you said it is so true, it has been out there years ago and they don't care. They meaning the media and the left, they love criminals and even though they are not fans of Bill and Hillary much anymore they pretty much protect them. grrrrrrrr

Tom that is what concerns me too. We have lost so much already and to not have the Judges conservative oh wow this will be so terrible.

Jack, OH my gawd.

Why am I not surprised? Hillary and Bill Clinton are shinning examples of what is leading the youth of America astray. What a legacy!

Les,yes, too bad they feel no shame for their criminal legacy. They have no feeling of guilt about anything.
