The blog Sigmund, Carl and Alfred remembers Hillary Clinton's early years in Washington:
Jerry Zeifman was the Democrats' general counsel chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate investigation. In a WSJ piece, reviewed and summarized Hilary Clinton's performance as a staff member:
Hillary Clinton violated House and committee rules by disclosing confidential information to unauthorized persons.
More than a few of the legal procedures she recommended were ethically flawed.
In one written legal memorandum, she advocated denying President Nixon representation by counsel.
Ms Clinton proposed that the committee should neither 1) hold any hearings with or take the depositions of any live witnesses, nor 2) conduct any original investigation of Watergate, bribery, tax evasion, or any other possible impeachable offense of President Nixon. Instead, the committee should rely on prior investigations conducted by other committees and agencies.
Ms Clinton also advocated that the official rules of the House be amended to deny members of the committee the right to question witnesses.
Jerry Zeifman decided that he could not recommend her for any position of public or private trust.
No wonder she flunked the D.C. bar exam. What did she study at Yale law school? Soviet Law?
