Goal: Hillary Takes the Fifth

Thursday, 10 May 2001 12:00 AM

Last week Newsmax was told that there are indeed witnesses telling this grand jury that Hillary Clinton was involved in trading pardons for votes from an Orthodox Jewish community north on New York City. In the past Hillary has publicly denied – of course -

It has also been previously reported elsewhere that witnesses have told the grand jury that they attended meetings with Hillary present where pardons were discussed. She has denied ever even attending any such meeting.

So where might this be headed?

Ideally the prosecutor – Mary Jo White – would indict Hillary for perjury, obstruction of justice and conspiracy.

But that may very well not happen.

So the next best thing would be for White to gather enough evidence against Hillary to justify calling Hillary as a witness before the grand jury.

Here is where things could get dicey for New York’s junior US Senator. Her criminal lawyer will

Remember the famous criticism of the entire grand jury system: "a good prosecutor can use a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich.”

No lawyer ever wants his/her client to testify in front of the grand jury

So, clearly, this entire investigation is aiming at the top: the Clintons.

But Hillary has a big problem: as a sitting US Senator with already-low poll ratings she can ill afford the following headlines in every paper in the world:

That single act by her – taking the Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination -

Politically – not legally – this would be a devastating event in her new elected career.

Her poll ratings would plummet to Nixon-like depths.

She would be crippled – and might still face prosecution, too.

None of this may happen. Maybe she – and her husband – will once again escape accountability for the damage they have caused to our laws and our political system.

But, maybe this scandal will be the one to ensnare Hillary and expose her for the liar she really is.

Let us all hope.
