    On his final morning in the White House, January 1st, 2001 Bill granted the last of his 140 presidential pardons and 36 commutations. Three recipients of these notorious last minute pardons ‘given’ to criminals by Bill Clinton minutes before leaving office made large to the presidential campaign Hillary Clinton,” according to campaign finance records examined by ABC News.One of Clinton’s most notorious pardons was uberrich Marc Rich, aka Marc David Reich, a financier and international commodities swindler who fled the US while being prosecuted on charges of tax evasion and illegally making oil deals with Iran during the hostage crisis. There’s nothing illegal about this; the Congress is run by the hand puppets of the uberrich and Republicans and Democrats burn with a bipartisan zeal to protect their ‘contributions’ from lobbyists, criminals, and big business. For both parties of the ruling rich that’s business usual. Clinton refused to pardon Leonard Peltier a leader of the American Indian Movement falsely convicted of killing two FBI agents attacking an Indian reservation in 1975 or hundreds of other prisoners of conscience. Clinton’s probable opponent in the Presidential race will be Rudolph Giuliani had a similar scandal break this week. His aide Bernie Kerik, who Giuliani proposed as Secretary of Homeland Security is mixed up in a new scandal. Judith Regan a book publisher sued FAUX News claiming that they told her to lie to the Feds investigating Kerik’s nomination about her affair him. The lawsuit asserts that the Fox News wanted to cover Giuliani, then planning this run for the White House. Kerik’s been charged with 16 counts of mail and tax fraud, corruption and lying on forms submitted to be Homeland Security Secretary, accepting more than $250,000 in free apartment renovations from a company with alleged ties to organized crime, and using a downtown Manhattan apartment intended for use by 9/11 rescue workers for sexual trysts. If Giuliani wins Kerik walks. The gory details include pardons for Clintons cocaine dealing brother Roger Clinton, his business partner Susan McDougal who went to prison rather than testify in the Whitewater investigation, former CIA Director John Deutch, Clintons former Housing Secretary Henry Cisneros, former Navaho Nation chief Peter MacDonald, impeached for taking bribes and kickbacks and Clintons cocaine dealing brother Roger Clinton. As ‘Deepthroat’ famously said “Follow the Money.” He was talking about a Republican criminal, Nixon who was pardoned by a Republican President but his advice equally to the Democrats as well. In her remarks at the Vegas debate Her Royal Highness, Heir Apparent Hillary gobsmacked her Democratic opponents, commoners all. She majestically accused them of ‘throwing mud’ and reading ‘from the Republican playbook’. Hillary Clinton runs on Bill Clinton’s record and tries to put a stop to discussion of her own. Look at her website for verification that she unashamedly runs on Bill Clinton’s record. Does this make her a misogynist too? Examine her votes for war, her pigheaded opposition to samesex marriage, her union busting and the fact that both Pat Robertson and Rupert Murdoch approve of her and you’ll see why she want suppress discussion of her record. It’s entirely correct to question her about DOMA, DADT, NAFTA, her relation to Bill Clinton’s record and her grubby campaign finances. http://www.usdoj.gov/pardon/clintonpardon_grants.htm
