Judicial Watch Sues For Draft Indictments Against Hillary in Whitewater Scandal

hillary-clinton-surprisedThe Obama caliphate is refusing to release public records made during the Whitewater investigation.  The records Judicial Watch (JW) is looking for pertain to lies Hillary told federal investigators during the investigation and her hiding of a $300,000 cross-loan she tried to hide from bank examiners.  Here is a statement from JW:

 Judicial Watch believes the records include an evolving set of draft indictments, written between 1996 and 1998. The draft indictments reportedly arose out of the Office of Independent Counsel investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s involvement in an allegedly fraudulent transaction, Castle Grande, involving the assets of Madison Guaranty Savings & Loan. Mrs. Clinton was alleged to have drafted an option agreement that concealed from federal bank examiners a fraudulent $300,000 cross-loan to the Castle Grande project. Mrs. Clinton’s grand jury testimony — and her alleged concealment of her role in this fraudulent transaction, including the hiding of her Rose Law Firm billing records concerning her legal work for Madison — reportedly became the subject of an obstruction of justice and perjury investigation.

JW President Tom Fitton elaborated:

“Judicial Watch has confirmed the existence of draft indictments of Hillary Clinton for her lies and obstruction in the Whitewater bank fraud investigation.  The Obama administration is refusing to release these records out of concern for Hillary Clinton’s privacy. Hillary Clinton’s privacy cannot be allowed to trump the public’s interest in knowing more about whether she obstructed justice and lied to a federal grand jury.”

The  National Archives found 38 pages of records in a folder titled “Draft Indictment” and about 200 pages of records in a folder titled “Hillary Rodham Clinton/Webster L. Hubbell Draft Indictment.”  That being said, they refused JW’s request citing protection of Hillary’s privacy.

JW maintains that Clinton’s privacy should not trump the public’s right to know if Hillary committed crimes either in the Whitewater deal or in the subsequent investigation led by Special Prosecutor Hickman Ewing, Jr. In 1999 Ewing testified that he had indeed prepared an indictment against Clinton three years earlier.

Remember that during the investigation, Webb Hubbell had agreed to turn state’s evidence until he received a no show consulting job with close Clinton friend, James Riady.  After that Hubbell reneged and was sentenced.  Riady was convicted in 2001 for illegally contributing one million dollars to Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign and was fined 8.3 million dollars.
