HillaryGate - again!

The Hill is reporting that Hillary may be in some more hot water.

This time it is for conducting unauthorized surveillance during the '92 presidential campaign. The story says that she listened to cellphone conversations of GOP officials and others.

Republicans are focusing on an allegation in a recent book by two Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters, which suggests Clinton listened to a secretly recorded conversation between political opponents.

In their book about Clinton’s rise to power, <u>Her Way</u>, Don Van Natta Jr., an investigative reporter at The New York Times, and Jeff Gerth, who spent 30 years as an investigative reporter at the paper, wrote:

“Hillary’s defense activities ranged from the inspirational to the microscopic to the down and dirty. She received memos about the status of various press inquiries; she vetted senior campaign aides; and she listened to a secretly recorded audiotape of a phone conversation of Clinton critics plotting their next attack.

So here we have a woman who will use surveillance to feather her own bed, but won't support using it to go after terrorists or others who want to do us harm. She should be nominated for Hypocrite of The Year.

When Nixon did this, he was vilified. I'll wager that she gets a mere slap on the hand for this. The Double-Standards Machine keeps rolling.
