Hillary Hires Convict Sandy “Burglar” as Advisor

President Bill Clinton’s former National Security Advisor, Sandy Berger, who stole and destroyed highly classified terrorism documents from the National Archives, is now an adviser to presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Berger admitted to and was convicted of stealing documents from the National Archives in advance of the 9/11 Commission hearings in 2003. Berger stuffed the documents in his socks and down his pants before spiriting them out of the building. The documents Sandy Berger stole were written by White House counter terrorism czar Richard Clarke and were a “tough review” of the Clinton administration’s shortcomings in dealing with terrorism.

Upon being caught, Berger panicked and told reporters and the American people that he had made “an honest mistake” by “inadvertently” taking the documents. Since the documents painted a very unflattering picture of the Clinton administration, Bill Clinton immediately vouched for Sandy Berger’s lie.

Berger was convicted, fined $50,000, placed on probation for two years, and stripped of his security clearance for three years.

Berger was an adviser in a similar role with the John Kerry presidential campaign in 2004 when the story broke. Sensibly, John Kerry fired the thief.

In politically correct speech, Hillary Clinton’s hiring of Sandy Berger is raising eyebrows even among Clinton admirers. Out here in the hinterland, we’re wondering just how stupid is that?

Case Western Law professor Jonathan Adler, with eyebrows raised, said, “It shows poor judgment and a lack of regard for Berger’s serious misdeeds,” Raising his eyebrow even higher, he added, “If Senator Clinton becomes the Democratic nominee, at some point she will begin to receive national security briefings that will include sensitive information. At such a point, continuing to keep Berger on board as a key advisor, where he might have access to sensitive material, would be beyond incomprehensible.”

The larger question though is; if candidate Clinton will hire a convicted national security thief as a national security advisor, what kind of people would President Clinton hire?

    it makes sense given the “morals” of the Clintons. Sadly people died because of the power-hungry couple who seem to be Ethel and her husband (THE COUPLE WHO STOLE
    OUR NUCLEAR SECRETS AND SOLD THEM TO THE SOVIETS, THEIR LAST NAME WAS ROSENBERG. AT LEAST CLINTON SOUNDS MORE AMERICAN, BUT THE SPIRIT OF TREASON IS VERY SIMILAR.
