The ‘dents’ to Hillary Clinton’s ‘reputation’
WASHINGTON, March 9, 2014 — The police report of July 20, 1993, said the man in Fort Marcy Park died by his own hand, a single gunshot wound he inflicted with a 1913 Colt revolver. The man was Vince Foster, deputy White House counsel to President Bill Clinton and his First Lady, Hillary.
Two years later, the Senate Whitewater Committee asked the Clinton White House for “an index missing from a drawer in Vincent Foster’s office that listed various files on the Clinton’s personal finances,” said the Associated Press. “A detective testified that he believes the White House hampered the investigation of Foster’s suicide… because it was trying to hide documents – possibly about Whitewater.”
In what became known as the Whitewater Scandal, the Clintons and their real estate investment partners were accused of using the Madison Guaranty Savings and Loan, which was run by fellow Whitewater Development Corp. partner Jim McDougal, to recover financial losses incurred when interest rates rose and real estate prices plunged. In essence, the federal government bailed out the Clintons and their shady business cronies.

Amid this intricate plot to defraud taxpayers was the Castle Grande project, in which a 1,050-acre lot was slated for the construction of a shopping center.
Robert Palmer, a land appraiser working in collusion with Madison Savings, inflated cost estimates for various Castle Grande projects. The purpose, said the Washington Post, was “to artificially boost the profits at… [the] ailing thrift… allowing insiders to rake off huge commissions.”
Hillary Clinton, a lawyer for Little Rock’s Rose Law Firm, worked on legal documents pertaining to the land deal. As First Lady, she denied any connection to fraudulent Castle Grande legal work, which she no doubt billed to her clients via U.S. mail, a felony act of wire fraud.
“I don’t believe I knew anything about any of these real estate parcels and projects,” she told investigators for the Resolution Trust Corp.
Rose Law Firm records, however, showed that Hillary billed Madison Savings and Loan for 60 hours of work over a 15-month period.
“Billing records from Hillary Rodham Clinton’s law firm mysteriously appeared on a table in the White House residence two years after investigators subpoenaed them,” said the AP. Carolyn Huber, a White House aide, discovered the Rose Law Firm records.

“At the time Ms. Huber found the billing records, criminal prosecutors and government regulators had subpoenas dating back two years for them. The White House had contended they could not be found and that the originals had disappeared from Mrs. Clinton’s law firm,” said the AP.
One of Bill Clinton’s last acts as president was to pardon many of his Whitewater co-conspirators… like appraiser Robert Palmer.
Getting back to deputy White House counsel Vince Foster, two months before his suicide, he delivered the commencement address at the University of Arkansas School of Law.
“The reputation you develop for intellectual and ethical integrity will be your greatest asset or your worst enemy,” said Foster, “There is no victory, no advantage, no fee, no favor, which is worth even a blemish on your reputation for intellect and integrity… Dents to reputation are irreparable.”
It’s clear Hillary Clinton took a lesson from the Vince Foster matter: Never leave incriminating records in the hands of those whose conscience renders them incapable of tolerating your evil stench. Whose sensibilities are such that suicide is far preferable to continuing the enabling of two-bit, trailer-trash grifters.
The media would have us focus on the side issue of madam secretary’s unsecured emails. That, of course, is a load of eyewash. Hillary had an email server installed in her home to conceal communications likely tied to the raising of foreign money on behalf of the nefarious foundation that bears her family name.
You see, easily expunged emails, like dead men, tell no tales.
