Did Bill and Hillary Know about plans to Smear Their Opponents?
While riding home yesterday I tuned into the local “Right-wing talk show Quinn and Rose. Jim Quinn was going on in his usual manor about the Clintons, and a smear campaign, that was suggested in a memo from Jay Rockefeller in 1993. As he went on it seemed that this was one of his normal hate a lib speeches, but in turns out Quinn was right about this. Fast forward to this morning. Because this was stuck in the back of my mind I decided to do a little research on the topic, and by God it was there, and it was mentioned on Huffingtonpost.
Judicial Watch, obtained records that Jay Rockefeller no May 26, 1993 sent a MEMO to the Clinton administration suggesting that Hillary should run a smear campaign against “anyone” that spoke negatively about her Healthcare plan.
Now I should point out, the Clintons were reluctant to release these documents and with good reason. These documents show just what type of character Mrs. Clinton has when it comes to getting her way.
According to Judicial Watch, a June 18, 1993, internal memorandum entitled “A Critique of Our Plan,” authored by someone with the initials “P.S.,” acknowledges that critics were correct when they questioned whether the plan would work. “I can think of parallels in wartime,” wrote “P.S.,” “but I have trouble coming up with a precedent in our peacetime history for such broad and centralized control over a sector of the economy. … Is the public really ready for this? … None of us knows whether we can make it work well or at all.”
Now the story gets even scarier. The Clinton developed a database on anyone that opposed the healthcare plan of Hillary.
A Feb. 5, 1993, draft memorandum from Alexis Herman and Mike Lux to Mrs. Clinton spells out the Office of Public Liaison’s plan for the health care reform campaign. It notes the development of an “interest group data base” detailing whether or not organizations “support(ed) us in the election.” The database would also track personal information about interest group leaders, such as their home phone numbers, addresses, “biographies, analysis of credibility in the media, and known relationships with Congress people.”
As you can see from the information above, it is obvious the Clintons knew, and approved of the plans to smear privet citizens and their families to move the so-called Healthcare plan through instead of taking it to the public on its merits.
