This week Hillary Clinton called the Bush Administration one of the worst in U.S. history and she accused Republican leaders of running the House like a “plantation.” Wonder what the New York senator will have to say about a detailed report that reveals a tax-fraud cover up in her husband’s administration?
Newly released portions of the independent counsel’s delayed report charges that a cover up at senior levels of the Bill Clinton Administration killed a tax fraud case against cabinet member Henry Cisneros, who admitted in 1999 that he had made secret payments to a mistress before becoming Clinton’s secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
Conducted by independent counsel David Barrett, the probe took 11 years to complete and mention’s that then-Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Peggy Richardson, a close friend of Hillary’s, was involved in efforts to quash the probe.
The powerful political law firm of Williams & Connolly, which represents Cisneros and the Clintons, has succeeded in getting much of the Barrett report redacted before release. This is why small portions are being leaked little by little. The American Thinker writes that this reminds us of what Hillary would prefer we forget: the pervasive corruption of the prior Clinton Administration. Then again, who could forget that Clinton actually got impeached?
