Clinton Official Embroiled in 9/11 Controversy and Subprime Crisis Reportedly Shortlisted to Run FBI
It appears that the name of Jamie Gorelick is being floated in the media as a potential nominee to head the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Setting aside that Gorelick is a progressive democrat apparatchik, let us consider exactly how much damage she may be able to do to the United States given a position of trust and authority.
A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Jamie Gorelick’s career …
The “Gorelick Wall” -- As the Deputy Attorney General of the United States during the Clinton administration, Gorelick was the lawyer who decided to prohibit collaboration between the intelligence agencies and which could have potentially prevented the tragedy on 9/11. <Source>
Government Powers -- While serving as Deputy Attorney General under Bill Clinton, Gorelick was a proponent for eliminating the use of strong encryption algorithms in private hands and proposed a key-escrow system that would allow the federal government and law enforcement agencies to freely intercept and decode encrypted communications. <Source>
Conflict of Interest –- Appointed by former Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle to serve as a commissioner on the bipartisan National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, which sought to investigate the circumstances leading up to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Which in my opinion was a major conflict of interest since her actions in preventing such an attack should have been investigated fully. <Source>
Cronyism & Corruption? -- Without any qualifications in the mortgage business, Gorelick was appointed to the position of Vice Chairman of Fannie Mae where she earned approximately $26 million serving along with another ex-Clintonista, Franklin Raines, who was later sanctioned for cooking Fannie Mae’s books to boost Wall Street ratings and earn outrageous bonuses for himself and other executives. <Source>
How many “red flags” must be fluttering in the wind before this potential nominee is sidelined?
Bottom Line …
Jamie Gorelick, as the FBI director, would be a clear and present danger to the United States of America. Appointing this life-long progressive democrat to a position of trust and authority would lead to a crisis of faith within the law enforcement and political community. With the keys to the kingdom, there is no telling what documents she might destroy, national secrets she might reveal, political investigations she might undertake or other adverse actions based on advancing the democrat’s progressive ideology.
And lest you think that Clintonistas are not capable of subverting justice for the progressive cause, I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of another committed Clintonista.
Samuel Richard "Sandy" Berger (born October 28, 1945) was United States National Security Advisor, under President Bill Clinton from 1997 to 2001. In his position, he helped to formulate the foreign policy of the Clinton Administration.
Chinese nuclear espionage -- In 1999, Berger was criticized for failing to promptly inform President Clinton of his knowledge that the People's Republic of China had managed to acquire the designs of a number of U.S. nuclear warheads. Berger was originally briefed of the espionage by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) in April 1996, but did not inform the president until July 1997.
Unauthorized removal of classified material -- On July 19, 2004, it was revealed that the U.S. Justice Department was investigating Berger for unauthorized removal of classified documents in October 2003 from a National Archives reading room prior to testifying before the 9/11 Commission, by stuffing them down his pants. The documents were five classified copies of a single report commissioned from Richard Clarke, covering internal assessments of the Clinton administration's handling of the unsuccessful 2000 millennium attack plots. An associate of Berger said Berger took one copy in September 2003 and four copies in October 2003. <Source>
I fear that this is just another attempt to insert progressive democrats into positions of power and authority where they can materially alter historical records and pursue a progressive political agenda at the taxpayer’s expense.
Should Obama nominate this highly unqualified candidate, people should contact their Senators to prevent any Senate confirmation.
