Hillary's unethical history

Let us look at Monica Lewinski's ex-boyfriend's wife and her so-called experience.
It goes back to the Watergate days, were she was young lawyer working for the House Judiciary Committee.
By way of Hot Air is Dan Calabrese’s new column that details some key facts about that period in her life.
Namely that she was fired by the chief counsel to the House Judiciary Committee for unethical behavior and that she conspired to deny Richard Nixon counsel during the hearings.

The now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary when she worked on the Watergate investigation, says Hillary’s history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther – and goes much deeper – than anyone realizes.

Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career.

Why?

“Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”
