GOP Slams Hillary for Hypocrisy

Thursday, 18 Oct 2007 03:05 PM

Newsmax reported earlier this week that Republicans planned to skewer Hillary Clinton over her position on government surveillance, capitalizing on allegations that she listened to a secretly recorded conversation between political opponents.

The skewering has begun.

In a fundraising e-mail from the Republican National Committee, RNC Chairman Robert M. Duncan writes:

“What is most remarkable about this is that Hillary has spent this year fighting Republican efforts to give our intelligence services the ability to monitor terrorist calls coming into or out of the United States.

“In other words, the Clinton attack machine is apparently fine with listening in on phone calls if it bolsters her political ambitions – but Hillary doesn’t want to give America’s intelligence services the ability to conduct surveillance on terrorists plotting to attack our nation.”

The e-mail alludes to a report in the book “Her Way” by former New York Times investigative reporter Jeff Gerth and Times investigative reporter Don Van Natta Jr. They write that during Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign, Hillary “received memos about the status of various press inquiries, she vetted senior campaign aides; and she listened to a secretly recorded audiotape of a phone conversation of Clinton critics plotting their next attack.”

As Newsmax reported in June, "The tape contained discussions of another woman who might surface with allegations about an affair with Bill. Bill's supporters monitored frequencies used by cell phones, and the tape was made during one of those monitoring sessions."

The e-mail seeks contributions to help the RNC “spread the word about Hillary’s double standard.”

It also charges that Hillary has “flip-flopped” on the war on terror and Iraq, first saying “it would be a mistake to set a date for withdrawing troops from Iraq, then voting to establish a timetable for surrender from this vital front in the war on terror…

“We cannot afford four more years of the Clintons!”
