From Fox News.
Janet Reno, the first woman to serve as U.S. attorney general and the epicenter of several political storms during the Clinton administration, has died. She was 78.
Reno died early Monday from complications of Parkinson’s disease…Reno spent her final days at home in Miami surrounded by family and friends.
Her legacy is full of complicity and dereliction.
Abetted by Reno’s lap-dog obstruction of justice, Clinton flushed the integrity of the Office as well as national security down the toilet. The eight year Clinton/Gore crime spree went without a hitch because Janet Reno refused to prosecute.
A list of Bubba’s crimes:
He and algore’s (one word) Chinese/Indonesian friends bought the 1996 “election” in exchange for information on, among other items, classified satellite technology. Johnny Chung, a fund-raiser for the Democratic Party, illegally funneled thousands of dollars from Chinese military agents to the Clinton-Gore re-election campaign. John Huang and Charlie Trie were indicted on charges related to those crimes, but when the FBI tried to investigate, it was blocked by Janet Reno. FBI Investigators wanted to do a search on Charlie Trie’s home but again, were denied by Reno’s DOJ. This gave Trie all the time in the world to destroy documents which would have blown the case wide open. What few documents they retrieved, were serious enough to indict him. Bubba preferred Monica’s mouth-to-crotch resuscitation over protecting this country.
Janet Reno was flat-out guilty of obstruction of justice.
READ THE COX REPORT. It detailed the technology and information transferred to China that helped further their ICBM program.
Clinton illegally obtained as many as 900 FBI files on individuals who were former employees (“political enemies”) during the previous Republican Administrations, including President Reagan’s, and lied about their existence, but they showed up on Hillary’s desk after a couple of years of being “misplaced”.
Bill and Hillary used an Arkansas travel agency, World Wide Travel, working with Clinton’s cousin Catherine Cornelius. The firm had provided a million dollars in deferred (fly now- pay later) travel for the Clinton campaign, freeing up much needed cash for campaigning. Employees of the firm donated to the Clinton campaign. The apparent pay-back to the firm was supervised by supervised by Hillary. When the story broke, she fired all the employees and threatened them with FBI investigations if they talked.
He lied under oath when he testified during his testimony in the Paula Jones sexual-harassment case, and uttered the now-infamous “It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is”, when he testified about his affair with Monica Lewinsky.
In a flagrant abuse of power, Reno fired all 94 United States Attorneys, a move unprecedented in American history, shortly after her appointment in March 1993. The liaison with the White House was the third highest ranking Justice Dept. official, associate attorney general, Webster Hubbell, who is now a convicted felon.
She made the decision regarding an armed confrontation that ended in civilian fatalities in Waco, Texas, in 1993. She really screwed the pooch on that one. Instead of taking a more measured approach, like arresting David Koresh outside the compound, she ordered the raid that ended with 76 men, women, and children killed when the building was burned to the ground.
She was also fucked up the espionage case against former Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist Wen Ho Lee. He was held nine months after being charged with mishandling nuclear secrets, only to be released on a lesser charge.
In 1992, she sent federal agents to Ruby Ridge to arrest Randy Weaver on trumped up weapons charges. Government agents shot and killed his 14 year old son, his dog, a good friend, and his wife, during a siege that lasted ten days.
In the aftermath of the slaughter:
Both the internal 1994 Ruby Ridge Task Force Report and the public 1995 Senate subcommittee report on Ruby Ridge criticized the rules of engagement as unconstitutional. A 1995 GAO report on use of force by federal law enforcement agencies stated: “In October 1995, Treasury and Justice adopted use of deadly force policies to standardize the various policies their component agencies had adopted over the years.”
……The surviving members of the Weaver family filed a wrongful death suit for $200 million. In an out-of-court settlement in August 1995, the federal government awarded Randy Weaver $100,000 and his three daughters $1 million each. The government did not admit any wrongdoing in the deaths of Sammy and Vicki. On the condition of anonymity, a DOJ official told the Washington Post that he believed the Weavers probably would have won the full amount if the case had gone to trial.
FBI director Louis Freeh disciplined or proposed discipline for twelve FBI employees over their handling of the incident and the later prosecution of Randy Weaver and Harris. He described the incident before the U.S. Senate hearing investigation as “synonymous with the exaggerated application of federal law enforcement” and stated “law enforcement overreacted at Ruby Ridge.”
In the 1990s she rejected an FBI plan to capture Osama bin Laden and refused to try the World Trade Center bombers as terrorists. When al-Qaida bombed the USS Cole in Yemen and killed 17 United States sailors, she prohibited any retaliation to this vicious terrorist attack, arguing that it would ‘violate international law’.
Her abuse of office paved the way for shitbags like Holder and Lynch, who violate the Constitution at will, without repercussions.
At least she’s dead. Good riddance to bad garbage.
