HILLARY CLINTON BLAMES EVERYONE BUT HERSELF FOR PARDONGATE SCANDAL

Senatorial Press Conference Equals Performance of “Pink Press Conference” of White House Years

Judicial Watch to Supplement Senate Ethics Complaint


(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch, Inc., the public interest watchdog that investigates and prosecutes government abuse and corruption, observed with amusement the performance of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) at her Congressional press conference this afternoon. Appearing well coifed and rested, Mrs. Clinton proceeded to blame everyone except herself for the bribery scheme evidenced in the Pardongate scandal. Recent revelations show that moneys likely flowed through her brother, Hugh Rodham, in order to grease the wheels of pardoning at least two major criminals, Messrs. Carlos Vignali and Almon Glenn Braswell. Further revelations today reveal that Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Treasurer for her Senate run was also involved in the pardon scheme.

“While Mrs. Clinton may be calm, relaxed, tan, ready and rested, she should save her energy for defending against Judicial Watch’s Senate Ethics Complaint against her for what is obviously an illegal bribery scheme. Previously, Judicial Watch uncovered in its Chinagate cases that Mrs. Clinton was the mastermind of devising another scheme to sell seats on trade missions at the Commerce Department for campaign contributions,” stated Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel Larry Klayman.

“Judicial Watch also has eight other lawsuits against her and will bring the former First Lady to justice,” added Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
