The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: The Election Crimes Bulletin

The story I'm about to tell you is not to do oppo research for Trump's campaign. It's so you know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but -- about your candidates. I've been following the Clintons for longer than they've been running for President. I wrote about Clinton's "tour business" originally for The Guardian.

Listen in and inform yourselves...


Dennis J Bernstein: Welcome to the Election Protection Bulletin, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, with noted investigative reporter and bestselling author Greg Palast. This episode stars Bill and Hillary, the Entergy company, an ex-con named Webster Hubbell, and an ethnic Chinese billionaire from Indonesia.

Welcome Greg. Let's start with this ex-con who is also a former associate attorney general, Mr. Webster Hubbell.

Greg Palast: Yes, Webster Hubbell is very important. He was basically a council to a lawyer for Bill Clinton. And before he went to the White House, he was one of the heads of the Rose Law Firm, and his associate, his assistant, was a woman who went by the name Hillary Rodham at the time. Now, why is this important? Because you'd rather hear it from me than from Trump.

So, I did an investigation for the Guardian some years ago, and here's what we found. Webster Hubbell went from the White House and the Justice Department to federal prison. He did it because he was charged with, and he pled guilty to, faking his billing records at his firm. He made up hours that he didn't actually work.

Now, since his associate was Hillary, and he has said cryptically "all lawyers cheat on their hours..." did he mean also his associate? And in fact, if you're going to cheat on your hours, one of the things that you do is you make up, say billing time with your assistant.

So was Hillary also involved in the go to jail crime of faking your law firm billing records? Interestingly, it was hard to find out because Webster Hubbell pled guilty, and instead of turning in the first lady, suddenly the billing records went missing. And they were only found later, just outside Bill and Hillary's White House bedroom, in the West Wing, after Hubbell was safely ensconced in federal prison.

The question becomes -- Why in the world wouldn't Hubbell save his own skin, obviously, by turning in Hillary Clinton as part of his billing co-conspiracy? What happened to these billing records and what were they about? And it might have something to go ahead Dennis, what's on your mind?

DB: I was going to say that's where the Riady family comes in. Very interesting family. Talk a little bit about them, and what that had to do with Hubbell's silence and willingness to go to jail.
