- From WSJ.com: Hillary Clinton Picks Heather Mills as General Counsel
From a Wall Street Journal e-mail announcing this WSJ Washington Wire piece. It turns out that Hillary hasn’t picked Sir Paul McCarthy’s one legged, gold digging, porn star/call girl, Dancing With The Stars contestant, soon to be ex-wife; that was just a tip of the mind typo from a WSJ publicist. No Hillary picked Cheryl Mills, one of the White House lawyers who defended Bill Clinton at his Senate impeachment trial. As a Clinton/Gore insider she’s not exactly squeaky clean.
A House committee referred Mills to the Department of Justice for an investigation of possible perjury and obstruction of the investigation into the creation of a White House donor database that was a Hillary pet project. More on those findings here. Cheryl Mills was intimately involved in the pardon of Marc Rich (after she left the White House), and in the shielding of millions of White House e-mails from legal discovery. You name the Clinton scandal, and chances are you’ll find Mills knee deep in it.
Perhaps Hillary would be better served with Lady Macca (as the tabloids have dubbed her) instead of someone at the nexus of every major Clinton administration scandal…
