Shocker: Hillary fired for being a LIAR!

Surprise, surprise:

As Hillary Clinton came under increasing scrutiny for her story about facing sniper fire in Bosnia, one question that arose was whether she has engaged in a pattern of lying.

The now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary when she worked on the Watergate investigation, says Hillary's history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther - and goes much deeper - than anyone realizes.

Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy's chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation - one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman's 17-year career.


"Because she was a liar," Zeifman said in an interview last week. "She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality."

Is there anyone who is surprised by this?

Anyone at all?


Me either.

Makes you wonder about the ... (Below threshold)

Makes you wonder about the ethics of the rest of the Democratic Party heirarchy when she is held up as being one of the two best possible candidates for President.

And they bitched about BUSH lying? I guess we should vote for her because she's a professional liar, instead of an amateur one?

Sheesh. More and more I'm convinced that (D) behind the name means "Dumbass".

Multiple choice test:... (Below threshold)

Multiple choice test:

Which of the following responses will Hillary Clinton offer for her Watergate actions:
1. Those questions have already been addressed.
2. I was under a sniper attack at the time.
3. These are just mud-slinging accusations to draw attention away from the real issues in this campaign.
4.Rocky would have done it too.
5. I don't recall.

How do you think Zeifman's comments would be received if they were given 8 years ago? Even 2 years ago?

Les Nessman:

Zeifman is a bit of a nutjob, so this story needs checked out more. Regardless, how many people are shocked that Hillary would behave this way? I bet not even many Democrats are surprised that a Clinton is this devious.

I was reading the comments at the Hot Air link and the part that reads, "She later removed the Douglas files without my permission and carried them to the offices of the impeachment inquiry staff -- where they were no longer accessible to the public," had one commenter replying with,

Now we know that this guy is a liar...

Otherwise, Hillary would have noted that in her 'biography'.

Give Shrillary a break. When she graduated from law school she took that she was a criminal lawyer, literally. Forty years as a criminal makes her a seasoned veteran.

Um, jpm100:

Zeifman DID make his allegations 8 years ago -- see the links in my piece on this, one entry down.

They were just ignored.

Zeifman is a nutter. Tried to get B.J.Bill impeached over Kosavo. Take this story with a grain of salt the size of a deer lick.

This is a story to good to check, so check it.
You might even find Gunga Dan somewhere in the background.

Yeah, Zeifman also accused ... (Below threshold)

Yeah, Zeifman also accused Doar - the HJC Majority Counsel - of attempting to sabotage the impeachment process back at the time. Doar was one of the main prosecutors for impeachment.

He also filed a wacko petition accusing Bill Clinton and Warren Christopher of war crimes for the Bosnian intervention.

Radical nut job. His accusations against Hillary may or may not be true, but he has no credibility.

Dunno about Zeifman, but I ... (Below threshold)

Dunno about Zeifman, but I do know that old stories popping up about a candidate in the middle of a tight selection race ... will be fully discounted by the public as mud-slinging.

Doesn't matter if they're true or not.

That was when Hillary was 27?? Well, she had just abandoned the reich wing party so, the filth was probably not all wore off yet.

I do not a and will not ever need anyone to tell me the Clinton's are liars. I know they are. ww

Trying to send you a trackback, Ms. Fiano. Not having much luck, though. This story has been out since at least 1999 and was republished earlier this year. I'm wondering why is it making waves now.

I am shocked, shocked, that someone named after Sir Edmund Hillary should be accused of such behavior.

No shocker here.

Hillary wasn't licensed to practice law in DC at the time because she failed the bar exam there.

Pro Cynic -

"I'm wondering why is it making waves now."

I'm sure it couldn't be because she's within spitting distance of the Presidency, and shows just what sort of person she is, or how she would govern the vast unwashed masses.

So, quite clearly now our choices for President are a liar of a lawyer, a rascist idealist, and a Democrat Republican.

Actually, being the biggest liar only gets you second fiddle in the democrapic party...hating America makes you first chair.

Considering that both Accur... (Below threshold)

Considering that both Accuracy in Media & Accuracy in Academia are Hillary Clinton creatures, it's a wonder Mr. Zeifman ever got his account of firing Hillary into the light of day. His story is important though. Not only does it go to character, it goes to a lifelong pattern of lying and obfuscation on the part of Hillary Clinton. This is what we must know; before electing a person to a position of trust; and it is this awareness, to which every white-collar criminal must fine-tune his or her antenna. The things I did hear about Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham during the Watergate Investigation proved wholly consistent. They were in fact true. Word of mouth may travel only so far, but today we have new technologies. Lest anyone doubt Mr. Zeifman's veracity regarding Hillary Clinton: http://theseedsof9-11.com
