Hide and Seek

on Friday, February 29, 2008

I've already speculated that the Clintons seem to be hiding something when it comes to their finances. Well now Hillary has fanned the flame by publicly admitting that she won't release her tax returns to the public unless she becomes the nominee. See for yourself:

(Thanks: Allahpundit)

Question is, what has she got to hide? The cool $5 million she "loaned" to her camp? More miraculous cattle futures? Secret Soros money?

And the Clinton legacy of political cover-ups doesn't derail there. Remember 4 months ago when the Hillary camp hotly denied with a red face that they were preventing the release of White House documents and records from her hubby's term? Now this comes out:

ABC News' Rick Klein Reports: The White House on Wednesday blamed the Clintons for a month-long delay in the release of some 11,000 pages of records relating to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's years as first lady...

White House Press Secretary Dana Perino said that Clinton representatives have known since Jan. 31 that the documents -- Hillary Clinton's daily public schedule during her husband's presidency -- have been deemed ready for public release by the National Archives.

But under a November 2001 executive order, the White House can't make them available to the public until approval is given by a designated representative of former President Bill Clinton.

"Presently, we have not received notice that the Clinton representative has reached a decision on the release or withholding of any of Mrs. Clinton's schedules."
Meanwhile, Hillary continued in her lie when she said this on Tuesday:

"I've urged that the process be as quick as possible... and I have urged that our end of it move as expeditiously as we can."

The docs have been sitting there for 4 weeks awaiting nothing more than a signature from one of your husband's cronies. How is that moving as "quickly as possible"?!
