Bill and Hillary Clinton’s lawyers have circled the wagons around documents, photos, videos, and, most recently, newly discovered audio recordings—likened to the Nixon tapes—held at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library. After the government watchdog group Judicial Watch sued to force the Clinton Library to release the literally millions of files, the Library released a scant 5000 records, claiming that the FOIA requests don’t reflect the other documents being held.
But this is just the tip of the iceberg.
On the other side of town, the documents held at the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies in Little Rock, documenting Bill Clinton’s years as governor of Arkansas, make the security at the Clinton Library seem mild. The files are held in a giant safe and require the personal signature of Clinton crony Bruce Lindsey for even a peek—and Lindsey has released exactly zero files.
And there’s a lot to hide.
Let’s start with the “suicides” of teenagers Don Henry and Kevin Ives by laying on the railroad tracks. Clinton’s medical examiner conveniently ruled the deaths suicide; but when the parents of the teens screamed bloody murder, the bodies were exhumed showing that the medical examiner, Dr. Fahmy Malak, had lied. Their bodies clearly showed signs of foul play, one teen having a knife wound, the other with blunt force trauma to the head. It has been rumored for years that the boys had witnessed a huge drug deal go down, part of Clinton’s infamous cocaine empire based in Mena, Arkansas—and so had to disappear.
What secrets do the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Butler Center for Arkansas Studies hold? We will never know. Presidents and former Presidents in this country, as we now know, are above the law.
Unless the American people demand otherwise.
