An Abuse of Power (Does Hillary Have Some Skeletons?)

WASHINGTON (NY Daily News) - The independent counsel investigation that led to the conviction of a former Clinton administration housing chief [Cisneros] could come back to haunt Sen. Hillary Clinton. […] After Cisneros was convicted, Barrett started looking into allegations that the IRS and Justice Department aides stymied a tax fraud case against the disgraced Housing and Urban Development secretary and audited Clinton critics.

The report showed, among other things, a pardoned by President Clinton, Cisneros paid $10,000 in fines after he was found guilty of lying to the FBI about paying hush money to his mistress, and potential abuses of power by Ex-IRS Commissioner Peggy Richardson, who remains a close friend of the Clintons.

Skeletons in the closet, or just more partisan politics at the tax payers’ expense?
