The Clinton Chronicles – By Michael Rivero
Bill Clinton was recruited to serve on the special staff being assembled by John Doar and attached to the House Judiciary Committee (not the regular committee staff) to handle the Nixon impeachment inquiry. He declined, and told them to hire his girlfriend, Hillary Rodham, instead.
Hillary Clinton was later fired from the staff of the House Judiciary committee investigating the Watergate scandal in 1974. She was fired by her supervisor, lifelong Democrat Jerry Zeifman, who stated, “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer”, he said. “She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”
Zeifman refused to give Clinton a letter of recommendation, one of only three employees he refused during his entire career.
Hillary’s defenders claim she was not actually fired as Jerry Zeifman technically did not have the authority to terminate her, and that Hillary simply left of her own accord.
When Bill Clinton became governor of Arkansas, that state’s prison board awarded a fat contract to a Little Rock company called Health Management Associates, or HMA. The company was paid $3 million a year to run medical services for the state’s prison system. The company paid prisoners $7 per pint of their blood. HMA then sold the blood on the international plasma market for $50 a pint, splitting the proceeds 50/50 with the Arkansas Department of Corrections. HMA’s contract with the Arkansas Department of Corrections and its entry into the blood market coincided with the rise of AIDS in the United States. But HMA did not screen the prisoners’ blood, even after the FDA issued special alerts about the higher incidents of AIDS and hepatitis in prison populations.
When American drug companies and blood fractionizers stopped buying blood taken from prisoners in the early 1980s, HMA turned to the international blood market, selling to companies in Italy, France, Spain, and Japan. But the prime buyer of HMA’s tainted blood, largely drawn from Cummings Unit prisoners in Grady, Arkansas, was a company in Canada called Continental Pharma Cryosan Ltd. Cryosan had been caught importing blood taken from Russian cadavers and relabeling it as though it came from Swedish donors. The company also sold blood taken from Haitian slums. In Canada alone, more than 7,000 people have bubs1died from contaminated blood transfusions, many of them hemophiliacs. More than 4,000 of them died of AIDS. In 1986, public outrage forced the cancellation of HMA’s contract, but the blood donor business was re-started by another company, Pine Bluff Biologicals. By the end of the 1980s, Arkansas was the only state still running a for-profit prison blood program, and was finally shut down by Clinton’s successor, Governor Jim Tucker, after the Clintons moved to Washington DC. Much of the Canadian AIDS and Hepatitis epidemic traces directly to the Arkansas prison-blood programs under then Governor Bill Clinton.
Hillary’s cash cows and 9,987 percent profit
In March 1994, it was revealed Hillary, with no previous experience in either raising cattle or commodity trading, had made massive profits from cattle futures trading between 1978 and 1979, when Bill Clinton’s salary as Arkansas attorney general had been modest. She reportedly made $99,537 in profit on a $1,000 investment (a 9,987 percent profit) in just nine months because of a highly placed connection at Tyson Foods, which was the largest employer in Arkansas and a big Clinton donor. The connection was broker Robert L. “Red” Bone, who was suspected of trading in unassigned large blocks, then at the day’s end, assigning winning trades that made money to Hillary’s account, and the losers to other less politically-connected investors.
The New York Times reported: “During Mr. Clinton’s tenure as Governor, Tyson benefited from several state decisions, including favorable environmental rulings, $9 million in state loans, and the placement of company executives on important state boards. … The commodities trades were the most successful investment the Clintons ever made. The nearly $100,000 profit enabled them to buy a house, invest in securities and real estate and provide a nest egg for their daughter, Chelsea. Hillary claimed she was a success at trading because she read the Wall Street Journal, yet did not continue her “successful” career. Much of the details of Hillary’s Cattle Futures deal were saved in a diary by her friend Diane Blair, whose husband, Tyson Foods Chief Counsel Jim Blair donated the diary (and other papers) to the University of Arkansas Special Collections library in Fayetteville after her death in 2000
