Shhhh….Big Mama is listening.


Mickey Kaus at Slate has an interesting excerpt from the soon-to-be-released Gerth-Van Natta Hillary Clinton book.

Looking back at the ’92 campaign, Hillary herself

big-mama.jpg“listened to a secretly recorded audiotape of a phone conversation of Clinton critics plotting their next attack. The tape contained discussions of another woman who might surface with allegations about an affair with Bill. Bill’s supporters monitored frequencies used by cell phones, and the tape was made during one of those monitoring sessions.” […snip]

P.P.P.S.: Isn’t it not so legal? … See also this exegesis of the elements of a violation of 18 U.S.C. 2511 (1) (a). I’m not an expert, but it looks like a potential minefield for Hillary. Think what Patrick Fitzgerald could have done with the provision criminalizing anyone who “intentionally uses, or endeavors to use, the contents of any wire, oral, or electronic communication” knowing it was obtained illegally….

Concludes Kaus: I guess it depends on what “uses” means.

  4. There are a lot of things not so legal about the Clintons (and their associates) that have gotten a free pass, and I’m pretty tired of it. Were the perps not Democrat politicians/working at the bidding of Democrat politicians, their asses would be in jail.

    I wonder if that would be a valid defense? “My client understood that, since Hillary Clinton was doing it, intercepting and taping telephone conversations of rivals was not an actual crime.”

    If her campaign is running around in circles trying to keep tabs on all the women that have had/are having an affair with Bill, they must be very, very busy.

  9. The Portuguese Reconquista and New Jersey Bookies

    What I did not learn was the reason why the Portuguese were able to excel in exploration when Spain and Italy were larger and wealthier and more powerful than tiny Portugal. I suspect that today, with even more concern about not hurting the feelings of…

  10. Democrats Vote In Unison

    Of course, the Washington Post terms it "Republicans run from partisan voting"

    Fresh off winning election to the Senate in the fall of 2002, Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) entered the chamber as a staunch conservative, voting with a majority of his …

    The American Revolution started at Lexington Green, Massachusetts on April 19, 1785. To those on the left that say that war never accomplished anything good, I must remind you that the American Revolution bought us our freedom.

    Given the notorious violation of human rights countenanced by the Malaysian judiciary, I suppose that leaving her homeland may be the only option other than martyrdom available to this sister in Christ. A woman who lost a court battle to…

  27. Bush Attacks GOP Base Again

    I guess he really does wants to alienate the pro-border GOP base in time for the 2008 election. After all, spewing insults at the party’s front-line troops certainly isn’t a wise move if he has any interest in party-building. President…

  31. Terror Threat at JFK Airport Foiled

    My concern is that people will look at this as just another one of those groups that plan to blow something up. Many dont seem to take these foiled plots very seriously anymore.

  32. The War on Terror is NOT a Bumper Sticker

    The few times Ive heard the news today, Ive heard about the plot to blow up JFK Airport that was foiled today.

    It is interesting listening to the medias take on the terrorists plot. Various experts are interviewed and various talking heads gi…

  33. Both Parties are In Trouble

    Democrats are unable to get even the most basic things done such as their 5-day workweek scheme or the whole thing about bi-partisan partnership instead of partisanship. Of course, the GOP isn’t doing much better. Republican Senators (clueless) as al…
