Hilary tries to kill damaging court docs

--posted by Tony Garcia on 10/03/2005

This story tells us a little bit more about Hilary past and present.
The independent counsel investigation that led to the conviction of a former Clinton administration housing chief could come back to haunt Sen. Hillary Clinton.

The Daily News has learned that lawyers are fighting to suppress a potentially embarrassing final report from the probe that found Housing Secretary Henry Cisneros lied to the FBI about paying $250,000 in hush money to his ex-mistress.

Cisneros paid a $10,000 fine after he was found guilty in 1999 and was later pardoned by Bill Clinton. And though neither Hillary Clinton nor her husband was targeted by independent counsel David Barrett, his 420-page final report sent to a special court 13 months ago will include alleged abuses of power by his administration, sources told The News.
What I hate about both parties is the way they try to circle the wagons around their members for no reason other than to protect them from consequences.
In April, Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.) tried to ax the probe - which has cost $22 million, including $1 million for the first six months of this year - by cutting Barrett's budget, saying it's a waste of money, but Republicans stopped them.

Williams and Connolly has since tried to quash the report, which probably would be released amid Clinton's 2006 Senate reelection bid.
BTW, Kerry did not seem to care about how much money was being spent on the Iran-Contra independent council.
