Benghazi: Hillary’s Second Watergate?

© Miri WTPOTUS May 6, 2013

Hillary Clinton, with chief counsel John Doar (left), bringing impeachment charges against President Nixon before the House Judiciary Committee in 1974

Back in 1974, Hillary Rodham Clinton worked for the House Judiciary Committee, which was writing articles of impeachment against President Richard M. Nixon. Clinton, however, was fired from that job.

Jerry Zeifman, her supervisor on the committee, was the person who fired her. [emphasis added]

Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, … contends Clinton was collaborating with allies of the Kennedys to block revelation of Kennedy-administration activities that made Watergate “look like a day at the beach.” …

[Franklin] Polk [once Chief Republican Counsel and Staff Director for the House Judiciary Committee] confirmed Clinton wrote a brief arguing Nixon should not be granted legal counsel due to a lack of precedent. But Clinton deliberately ignored the then-recent case of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, who was allowed to have a lawyer during the impeachment attempt against him in 1970.

Moreover, Zeifman claims Clinton bolstered her fraudulent brief by removing all of the Douglas files from public access and storing them at her office, enabling her to argue as if the case never existed.

Polk confirmed the Clinton memo ignored the Douglas case, but he could not confirm or dispel the claim that Hillary removed the files.

Looking back on the case amid Clinton’s fierce battle [in 2008] with Sen. Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination, [WND columnist Dan] Calabrese sees a picture emerging “of a very ambitious young lawyer who was eager to please her political patrons, and was willing to mislead and undermine established committee staff and senior committee members in order to do so.” …

When the Watergate probe concluded, Zeifman said, he fired Clinton from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation. …

She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer,” Zeifman said. “She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

Flash forward to 2012, when Hillary Clinton was U.S. Secretary of State.  On her watch,  on the night of Sept. 11, Muslim jihadist terrorists, likely associates of Al Qaeda, attacked a U.S. “mission” in Benghazi, Libya, killing four Americans and wounding many others.  Although it was suspected within hours to be a terrorist attack, the Obama administration did everything in its power to pretend otherwise.

Now Clinton’s words and actions in the aftermath of that event are being investigated by the House of Representatives.  Ironic?

Lies and coverups.  Unethical behavior.  Conspiracy. A leopardess doesn’t change her spots.  Will Benghazi be yet another “Watergate” for Hillary?  Or will it be her Waterloo, when whistle blowers finally get to speak in hearings this week? [emphasis added]

… Hillary Clinton and a key aide effectively tried to cut the department’s own counterterrorism bureau out of the chain of reporting and decision-making, according to … Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine and now the deputy coordinator for operations in the agency’s counterterrorism bureau.

[A]nother official from the counterterrorism bureau — independently of Thompson — voiced the same complaint about Clinton and Under Secretary for Management Patrick [F.] Kennedy to trusted national security colleagues back in October. …

Thompson considers himself a whistle-blower whose account was suppressed by the official investigative panel that Clinton convened to review the episode, the Accountability Review Board (ARB). Thompson’s lawyer, Joseph diGenova, a former U.S. attorney, has further alleged that his client has been subjected to threats and intimidation by as-yet-unnamed superiors at State, in advance of his cooperation with Congress. …

Documents from the State Department, the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Council … showed that senior officials from those agencies decided within days of the attacks to delete all references to Al Qaeda’s known involvement in them from “talking points” being prepared for those administration officers being sent out to discuss the attacks publicly.  …

[T]he statements of all senior Obama administration officials who commented publicly on Benghazi during the early days after the attacks — sought instead to depict the Americans’ deaths as the result of a spontaneous protest that went awry. The administration later acknowledged that there had been no such protest … 

[T]he conduct of the ARB is itself now under review by the State Department’s Office of Inspector General.

In essence, Clinton’s State Dept. investigated itself.

In 1974, Hillary Clinton tried to deny President Richard M. Nixon legal counsel.  What would she have said then to anyone who even suggested that the Nixon administration be allowed to investigate its own actions after the Watergate burglary, write a report, and then MOVE ON?

    • Hope so.

    • and today, they report this:

      http://frontpagemag.com/2013/cynthia-farahat/benghazi-terrorists-dr-morsi-sent-us/

      Indeed, one of the videos shot with a cell phone of one of the attackers emerged around the time four Americans were killed. It shows a mob approaching the American compound under siege, clearly telling the terrorists in the dialect of Upper Egypt: “Mahadesh, mahadesh yermi, Dr. Morsi ba`atna” — which translates to: “Don’t shoot, don’t shoot, Dr. Morsi sent us.”

      Please take the time to skim both links. very informative. makes sense.

      • It sure does. It makes one think: coordination. But with whom and how high up? Did he ALSO instigate the “demonstrations” in CAIRO? What did Morsi have to do with the invention of the video excuse?

        “According to a Fox News report, Abo Ahmed had contacted Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri in late 2012, asking to establish a base in Libya “to take advantage of the conditions in Libya after the revolution in order to buy weapons and attract foreign fighters.”

        Egyptian media demanded an explanation from the Egyptian regime on why Morsi’s name was mentioned by jihadists during the attack. This question went unanswered, and until now there has been no word of this issue in English-language media.

        This incident fits a larger context: On the same day that the U.S. compound in Benghazi was attacked, so too was the U.S. Embassy in Cairo under attack, resulting in al-Qaeda flags flying above the embassy in the place of American flags. According to friends living two blocks away from the U.S. embassy, Egyptian security was withdrawn from protecting the embassy a month prior to the attack – a development without precedent.”

  1. Very interesting! Read the small print at the bottom re Hilliary Clinton

    Who is Ed Mezvinsky?…

    Edward “Ed” Mezvinsky born January 17, 1937, is a former Democrat Congressman. As a Democrat, he represented Iowa ‘s 1st Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives for two terms, from 1973 to 1977.

    His wife was the former NBC News reporter and Democrat Congresswoman from Pennsylvania, Marjorie Margolies, who cast the deciding vote in the House of Representatives for Bill Clinton’s controversial 1994 tax hike.

    Congressman Ed Mezvinsky sat on the House Judiciary Committee that decided the fate of Richard Nixon,

    Hillary Clinton participated in that Committee as well, helping to draw up the articles of impeachment against Nixon. (see footnote below)

    The Mezvinskys and the Clintons have been political allies and friends for years.

    In March 2001, Ed Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 charges of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud. He was sentenced to 80 months in Federal prison.

    Ed Mezvinsky embezzled more than $10 million dollars from people via both a Ponzi scheme and the notorious Nigerian e-mail scams, using the Clinton’s name to help him gain the trust of his victims.

    After serving five years in federal prison, he was released in April 2008. He remained on federal probation through 2011, and still owes $9.4 million in restitution to his victims.

    So who is Ed Mezvinsky?

    Marc and Chelsea Mezvinsky

    He’s Chelsea Clinton’s father-in-law!!! Did you know that??

    Marc’s father is a lying, cheating, corrupt criminal ex-politician, just like Chelsea’s father.

    Did anyone hear mention of Ed’s past in any of the mainstream media prior to Chelsea’s multimillion dollar wedding? Chelsea was married in 2010 with some of the most glamorous press for any wedding, second only to the Royals of England. It’s 2013 now and most of us are just learning about her convicted felon of a father-in-law.

    Can you imagine what the corrupt biased liberal media would have done if Ed was going to be Jenna Bush’s father-in-law; or better yet, Bristol Palin’s father-in- law, or better yet, if he would have been a Tea Party Republican? I guarantee you, the press would have used Ed’s criminal activity to tarnish a Bush or Palin wedding as much as possible. Victim after victim would have been paraded in front of the camera, talking about how Ed stole their money, and how dare they hold a multimillion dollar wedding while the poor victims are suffering. Occupy Wall Street types would have been demonstrating and disrupting the wedding as much as possible. This negative publicity would have been headline news every day for weeks prior to the wedding, conditioning people to have utter disdain for the Bush’s or Palin’s and for Tea Party Republicans.

    But there’s no liberal bias in the media, no double standards in politics or in the press…Right???

    Footnote: Did you know that Hillary was fired from the House Judiciary Committee staff for the impeachment of Nixon in 1974 for unethical behavior? Yes indeed. Her boss, Jerry Zeifman, general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee at the time fired her. WHY?? Zeifman fired Clinton because “…she was a liar.
    She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer,” Zeifman said. “She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.” A “LIAR”??? Violate the Constitution??? Gee…some things never change.

    Does Benghazi ring a bell??

    This story about Mezvinsky’s criminal activity and connection to the Clintons was verified as TRUE by Snopes.

    http://www.snopes.com/politics/clintons/mezvinsky.asp

    • Wow. TY for finding that, Zenway! I didn’t know about Chelsea’s father-in-law. It’s amazing enough how her “connections” alone got her a job at NBC. (It sure wasn’t her “talent”; she’s pitiful there. Sad but true.) This writer is totally correct. Had this been Bristol or Jenna, the media would have gone crazy. EVERYBODY would have known about Ed’s “history”. What a guy! He even dumped his wife of 10 years after being elected, and married that reporter. So like all the other DemoncRAT “couples” in DC: One a member of the media. So cozy.

      Is this yet ANOTHER arranged political marriage? Of all the men in the wide world, Chelsea has to marry the son of a disgraced Clinton “family friend”? Was nobody else interested? She probably wouldn’t have settled for an ordinary guy who might have been interested, provided he was given a chance to even get close to her. Yes, the rich and powerful are surely different.

      btw, we did know about Hillary getting fired from the House staff; in fact, I just wrote a post about that! Just another thing we didn’t know, or at least remember, about Hillary Clinton.

        • WOW. the sticky web on Hillary’s side. This is a good read!

        • Of course they don’t. They’re like zombies or terminators in that way. Did you know that casting is currently taking place for a MOVIE about Hillary Clinton and her days during Watergate when she was a mousy blond girl hiding behind big glasses and a terrible hairdo, and yet a hunk like Bill pursued her nevertheless? Steamy sex scenes promised! I’m not making this up. Scarlett Johansson (seriously) being considered for the role. Let’s assume that they’re NOT going to have any input from that Zeifman guy who FIRED HILLARY FROM THE HOUSE STAFF BECAUSE OF HER DISHONESTY, LACK OF ETHICS, AND CORRUPT BEHAVIOR.

          • Zeifman will probably make the obituaries about the time the movie comes out.” Steamy sex scenes” ,wow, maybe Bill will grab Hillary by her underarm hair, that I heard she never shaved in those days…yeah, should be pretty steamy…WRONCHY….maybe.

            • It’s kind of nauseating, isn’t it? Just thinking about it. One wonders if Scarlett will go for realism and refuse to shave? YUK!

              Look at Hill in the photo at the top of the post. So CUTE, isn’t she? We’re supposed to believe this, too.

              Remember how they made Barry a sex symbol early on, with the “Obama girl” and his pecs shot (when they photoshopped his head onto someone else’s body)? Will this be good or bad for Hillary’s chances in 2016?

              btw, I think Jerome might already have made the obits: http://www.meaningfulfunerals.net/fh/obituaries/obituary.cfm?o_id=673547&fh_id=12534

              Jerome M. Zeifman, age 84, of Newtown, CT died Thursday, July 22, 2010 at Danbury Health Care, Danbury, CT. He is survived by his wife Marianne Zeifman.

              He was born August 13, 1925 in Mineola, New York. He attended Harvard University, and received a law degree from New York University. He served as a naval communications officer during World War II.

              Mr. Zeifman opened a private law practice in Nyack, New York prior to working for the Committee on the Judiciary of the United States House of Representatives. He served as counsel (1961-73) and general counsel (1973-74) to the Judiciary Committee. He was general counsel during the Watergate scandal, the threatened impeachment of Richard Nixon, and the confirmations of Gerald Ford and Nelson Rockefeller. He retired from the committee staff in 1974 to teach law at the University of Santa Clara.

              Calling hours will be at the Hull Funeral Home, 60 Division St., Danbury, CT Thursday, August 19 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Cremation was private.”

              NEWTOWN, CT. How weird is that? Isn’t that Danbury home where Orly is looking for the elusive Harrison J. Bounel, or have I lost my mind completely? (Don’t answer that!)

              There are stories out there that say he didn’t fire Hillary, that he didn’t have the power to. But there are straight-from-the-horse’s-mouth stories where he says that he DID “terminate” her employment and would NOT give her references because of her lack of ethics. Here’s a Free Republic post copied, apparently, from his website (which no longer exists): http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1995278/posts

              I wonder who inherited that personal diary of his? It belongs in the National Archives. Of course, had it been there, it might have been a victim of Sandy Burgler, already, like other documents that harmed the Clintons.

              Conveniently already dead. RIP. Looks like he was a freeper!

              • There’s the OTHER Obama connection to Danbury, CT. Not just that it was proposed that the elusive Harrison J. Bounel lived there in a nursing home or some other type of home, but also that Barry’s bogus SS# has the prefix indicating that it was issued either in Stamford or DANBURY.

          • Yeah, I wondered when I posted if Zeifman was already cold. Geeese….Danbury and Newtown Ct. ! Isn’t Danbury also one of the hospitals that the Newtown victims were taken care of? Guess the autopsy ,if there was one, was done by the same group as the litl,children of Newtown.

          • this jogs a memory from back in the 2008 primaries where it was reported that Johansson and barky were blackberry buddies. and there was something else about she an Bill Clinton, too. maybe if she gets casted, Bill can help with the technicalities.

            • Oh, yeah. Remember that? It was luuuuuuuuuv. From the recently released prom photo, it appears Barry has a thing for blonds. How would Mooch look in a blond wig?

              larger ???

        • “Twenty years after being ousted from Congress after one term, Marjorie Margolis, a former Pennsylvania congresswoman and now Chelsea Clinton’s mother-in-law, is planning a political comeback campaign, Ken Smukler, her senior political adviser, confirmed to CBSNews.com.

          Margolies, a Democrat who represented Pennsylvania’s 13th district, was voted out of office in 1994 after casting a controversial vote in favor of then-President Bill Clinton’s deficit reduction law. She will attempt to win back her old seat in 2014, Smukler told CBS.

          Now 70, Margolies is the chair of Women’s Campaign International, a women’s advocacy group, and is listed as a faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania’s Fels Institute of Government.

          According to Bloomberg, a 527 group called “Marjorie 2014” was created earlier this month to “support” her candidacy in the event that she decided to run.

          Margolies’ son, Mark Mezvinsky, married Chelsea Clinton in 2010.”

          It’s funny how names just pop up in the news at about the same time, isn’t it? I guess if Weiner can be re-erected, then so can this chick. Amazing what plastic surgery does for a 70-year-old. (Just ask San Fran Nana.) btw, somebody on talk radio this morning suggested that it looks as if Jay Carney Barker has been given bo-tox, to tamp down his facial expressions, which too often give away what he’s thinking or lying about. Has anybody else noticed that Jay’s face is less mobile than it used to be? I’d put nothing past these people. They WOULD make Jay go under the needle if it helps him to lie, dissemble, distort, and mislead. No mention in that story about “Majorie’s” corrupt husband. What is it with these DemoncRAT women? They all have to have one name? Oprah. Cher. Hillary. Marjorie. Beyonce. Mooch. Can women get NO RESPECT?

    • good scoop, Z. its always been kept under the radar.

      the big wedding was at Soro’s joint in NY, too. i’m pretty sure.

  6. Former CIA Officer Mike Baker on the Latest Benghazi Bombshell
    by Gary P Jackson
    May 31, 2013

    All that matters is the gross dereliction duty by President Obama
    ~ Mike Baker

    CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson tweeted a real bombshell on Thursday afternoon. It seems the Obama regime wanted the hospital where Ambassador Chris Steven’s body ended up at, to list him as a “John Doe” rather than under his real name.

    CBS: Attkisson Officials instructed Benghazi hospital to list Stevens as cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-5… via @CBSNews—
    Sharyl Attkisson (@SharylAttkisson) May 30, 2013

    According to the official, U.S. officials aren’t certain to this day whether Stevens was still alive when local Libyans made cell phone video recordings of his body being carried or dragged from the U.S. mission, possibly by looters.

    And they still don’t know exactly who transported him to the Benghazi Medical Center where they say medical personnel attempted resuscitation, unsuccessfully, for about 40 minutes (90 minutes, according to published accounts from a Libyan doctor). When pieced together with previously provided information, this is how the search for Stevens is said to have unfolded, according to the official:….

    ~
    When hospital officials asked what name should be entered on the death certificate, U.S. officials [WHO???] relayed the message to use “John Doe.”
    ~

    The report goes on to say: [emphasis mine]

    Stevens’ body was then taken to an FBI facility in Dover, Del., for an autopsy which revealed he died of asphyxia, presumably from smoke inhalation. Officials found no internal damage, no indication of assault and no mistreatment of his body. Stevens was then transported to a funeral home on Saturday, Sept. 15 and cremated, at his family’s request.

    This makes one think the whole exercise was about a cover-up and protecting Obama’s narrow ass!

    How in the hell could the official autopsy get away with saying there was “no indication of assault and no mistreatment of his body“?
    Cont.

    http://thespeechatimeforchoosing.wordpress.com/2013/05/31/former-cia-officer-mike-baker-on-the-latest-benghazi-bombshell/

    • Amazing. The cell photos SHOW mistreatment of his body. We see his pants pulled down, too. The early reports were that he was raped. Did his family REALLY request cremation? We learned already from Hicks’s testimony that that “hospital” is associated with Ansar al-Sharia. That’s why Hicks and company weren’t SURE they could believe the report that Stevens was there. They got phone calls that seemed to them to be ploys to get them to send people there, into an ambush. I heard Hicks give that testimony. The call came from Stevens’s own phone.

  7. NO… we will NOT let it go… STEP UP to the STAND DOWN ORDER!
    Lloyd Marcus….. push back harder…. we DEMAND the TRUTH!

  9. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57592442/republicans-want-to-talk-to-col-george-bristol-about-benghazi/ SHARYL reports:

    Republicans want to talk to Col. George Bristol about Benghazi

    Marine Corps Col. George Bristol was in a key position in the U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) chain of command the night of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. As such, he’s high on the list of people that some Republican members of Congress want to interview. But they don’t know where he is and the Pentagon isn’t telling.

    Pentagon spokesman Major Robert Firman told CBS News that the Department of Defense “cannot compel retired members to testify before Congress.”

    “They say he’s retired and they can’t reach out to him,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told CBS News. “That’s hogwash.”

    Bristol, a martial arts master, was commander of Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara based in Stuttgart, Germany until he retired last March. In an article in Stars and Stripes, Bristol is quoted at his retirement ceremony as telling his troops that “an evil” has descended on Africa, referring to Islamic militant groups. “It is on us to stomp it out.” …’

    So, a new category: conveniently “retired”. Why are all these higher ups RETIRING? Are they being forced out, by any means necessary? I think so. Only to be replaced with MINIONS (and I don’t mean the cute ones from the movies).

    • http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jul/19/congress-will-hear-africa-special-forces-commander/

      Congress will hear from Africa special forces commander on Benghazi attack

      House Republicans will hear behind closed doors from a senior U.S. Marine Corps officer who was responsible for special forces in Africa on the night of last year’s deadly terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, despite what some GOP members are saying was an effort by the Pentagon to hide him.

      Defense Department officials have previously told congressional investigators and the news media that Col. George Bristol cannot be compelled to testify because he is retired, but Marine Corps Times this week reported that he remains on active duty until the end of the month.

      “There is every reason to expect that a briefing [with Col. Bristol] will take place in the near future,” Claude Chafin, the spokesman for the Republican majority on the House Armed Services Committee, told The Washington Times Friday. “We are working out the details with the Department of Defense.”

      He said the briefing would likely be in a classified setting. “Questioning our witnesses in a closed briefing allows members to receive information without worrying about the disclosure of classified material.”

      “Col. Bristol will be available to meet with House and Senate members and their staffs very soon,” Air Force Maj. Robert A. Firman, a Pentagon spokesman confirmed to The Times. …”

      • I believe this why we’re being saturated with Trayvon and plight of negroes in America.

        They are on call for when the Truth arrives.
