Questions for Hillary’s Campaign Staff Regarding Hsu Money

Posted in Uncategorized by Patrick Truax on August 30, 2007

Good Morning. I have a few questions regarding the charity that the Norman Hsu’s money will be returned to.

1. Which charity is it? What is its tax ID number?

2. Will the campaign be able to write the donation off as a charitable donation?

3. Given that this is not the first time Asian money money has made it into Bill/Hillary campaign coffers, what precautions will be taken in the future to prevent this from happening again?

4. The Paw family in San Francisco was the link between Hsu and the Hillary campaign. What legal consequences, if any will they endure? If there are, will the campaign be providing legal assistance?

5. Norman Hsu has been a fugitive from justice for almost 15 years, how could his money not raise flags in the campaign?

Thank You for clearing these questions up,

    I CC’d the New York Times, a number of Fox anchors, and and few other media outlets in my email to Hillary’s campaign office. Im now taking bets on how soon someone will get back to me…

    Chinese money again. Nothing in the major media, though. Fox has it, but nothing yet on CNN. At least what I have seen..

    Watch for the Hillary campaign to throw the Paw’s under the bus..

    Well, I just heard back from the Hillary Campaign press office. They “will get back to me” and then the lady hung up on me, once I identified myself as a blogger. This just adds more creedence to the theory that there is no charity, or there is one, but it is a dummy charity with the express purpose of hiding Hsu’s money. I wonder if any of these staffers ever feel a twinge of conscience when they do dirty work for the Clintons. The Clinons are always protected by layers of interns, staffers, and gofers (who will take the blame for “not getting the information to Hillary in time”. They will be fired and Hillary will remain unscathed, still having not provided the name of the “charity” that they “donated” Hsu’s money to..

    I guess the next question is; will President elect Hillary be granting a pardon to Hsu on 21 Jan 09??

    Re: Second Request to Correct False FEC Report and Refund Illegal and Excessive Contributions Made in Cooperation and Consultation And At The Request Of A Candidate

    Dear Hillary:

    It has been five years since my original demand letter (attached) was delivered to your Senate chambers on July 16, 2001. In that letter I reminded you of the facts surrounding my personal expenditures of more than $1.2 million to benefit your 2000 Senate campaign, at the direction of yourself and your agents Bill Clinton, Ed Rendell, David Rosen, Kelly Craighead and James Levin.

    I respectfully requested that you obey the laws you swore to uphold when you took the oath of the office I significantly aided you in obtaining. I asked that you file corrected reports with the FEC and IRS regarding my contributions and that you obey the laws requiring that you refund my illegally excessive cash in kind contributions of more than $1.2 million as now corroborated by the FBI, Justice Department Office of Public Integrity and the FEC.

    You refused to take any action to correct the three false FEC reports filed by your Joint Fundraising Committee, New York Senate 2000, and you stood by while a fourth false report was filed with the FEC by your campaign treasurer, Andrew Grossman, on July 30, 2001.

    You have refused to comment publicly on your role in directing and coercing my expenditures on behalf of your campaign between June and October, 2000, relying on spokes-lawyers who have consistently misled the media by stating that New York Senate 2000 filed correct reports. You have maintained that position until the December, 2005 admission by your campaign, in a forced settlement with the FEC based on overwhelming evidence of an intentional violation of Federal Election Law, that it did in fact file three false reports that hid more than $720,000 I expended on your campaign’s behalf.

    No comment has been made by you or any of your spokes-people regarding the statements made on your behalf to the voters and your opponent, through the Washington Post in articles on August 15 and 17, 2000, that you vowed not to accept any money from me, that you refunded any money I contributed and that I contributed no money whatsoever to Event 39, the Hollywood Gala Farewell Salute to President Clinton on August 12, 2000 that I produced and paid all expenses for.

    Your campaign filed a fifth FEC report on January 30, 2006, which purportedly corrected all previous false reports, and your campaign now attributes $225,000 as being contributed personally by my former partner Stan Lee, and $839,000 as being contributed by my two personal holding companies, Excelsior and Paraversal which somehow were lumped together as co-contributors of $839,000.

    As you know, this FEC report, and the uncorrected IRS report made to mirror the original FEC 2000 reports, are false. Since you requested and suggested I make the personal contribution that I made that exceeded $1.2 million, and your agents Bill Clinton, Ed Rendell, David Rosen, Kelly Craighead, James Levin cooperated, consulted and even coerced me in connection with my contribution, you have been well aware that all of these reports are false, and all statements made on your behalf to the investigatory agencies that looked into this matter have been false.

    In addition, Stan Lee has testified publicly, under oath and to all investigatory agencies that he gave no money to your campaign or to pay for Event 39. Yet he is now attributed by your campaign to have given $225,000. I have attached to this letter my demand letter to him (below) to notify you immediately to correct this January 30, 2006 report and attribute the $225,000 to me as the correct donor. I have also notified you that I made a $100,000 contribution through him which I reimbursed him for and which he has also confirmed in sworn testimony.

    I have conducted all of my personal and business transactions through personal holding companies I wholly owned and controlled, including Paraversal and Excelsior, and all of the assets of those companies are my personal property and funds, and no one else’s. You are again on notice that all monies attributed as contributions to your campaign from my alter egos are in fact my funds over which I exercised complete dominion and control. Your efforts to confuse that issue by maintaining I never wrote one personal check to your campaign belie the fact that I never wrote personal checks for any business related expenditures I have made since 1979 when Fidel Castro’s government obtained a judgment against me.

    Considering that Title 2 USC 441 f and 2 USC 441 a(a)(7)(B)(i) have been violated by your actions, and that all of my contributions on your behalf are attributable solely and exclusively to your candidacy, making them illegally excessive, I hereby demand you correct the latest FEC report that misreports my personal contribution of $1,060,000 and immediately cause that illegal contribution to be refunded at long last.

    Please arrange with my counsel at U.S.Justice Foundation, Gary Kreep, to accept that refund as a contribution to that 501 c(3) educational foundation that fights public corruption and supports Constitutional rights.

    Very Truly,

    Peter F. Paul

    ORIGINAL DEMAND LETTER:

    Peter Paul demand letter to Hillary Clinton

    July 16, 2001

    Senator Hillary Clinton
    U.S.Senate
    Washington, DC

    Via Hand Delivery

    Dear Hillary:

    It is with profound regret and extreme disappointment that I am forced to write this letter to you reminding you of your responsibility as a Federal elected official to comply with the laws and regulations of the United States that you have sworn to defend and protect, and as a citizen, the same laws and regulations that govern your individual conduct.

    As you are personally aware, in May, 2000, I was induced by your National Campaign Finance Director, David Rosen, your friend Jim Levin and your volunteer Hollywood talent coordinator and fundraiser, Aaron Tonken, to become the largest individual contributor to your Senatorial campaign in an effort to begin building a closer relationship with your husband in anticipation of his departure from public service to the private sector.

    As you recall, I hosted a private fundraising luncheon for you at Spago, and a fund raising tea at Mrs. Gershman’s Beverly Hills Estate on June 9, 2000, and paid certain expenses in connection with that event in addition to making a commitment to contribute $150,000 in stock to your campaign. I subsequently committed to produce and underwrite the largest fundraiser of your campaign, which was also a Hollywood farewell tribute to the President, on August 12, 2000, at the Brentwood estate of our mutual friend Ken Roberts. Rather than make an additional contribution to your campaign, I was induced to underwrite all the expenses of the reception, concert and private dinner so that David Rosen could galvanize your faltering fundraising momentum and generate much needed “hard money” contributions net of any and all expenses. In good faith I fulfilled that commitment, even as the expenses skyrocketed from a projected $500,000 to well over $2 million!

    No expense was spared to produce a poignant and historic evening when the luminaries of the entertainment industry shared their love and appreciation for the contributions made by the President and yourself during the previous eight years of the Clinton Administration. As you requested, I hired your friend Gary Smith to produce the concert part of the event, which he did superbly through his lend out company Black Ink Productions. Although Gary’s unconscionable fee of $850,000 for the concert was reduced at my request by $50,000 due to your personal intervention, you should know that Gary subsequently tacked on another $75,000 for his personal production fee which I was not made aware of until the day before the event. Further, Gary demonstrated the most egregious unprofessionalism in the way he sabotaged my script for Stan Lee’s introduction and the activities of his film crews that were charged with documenting the event. To add insult to injury, he fabricated additional expenses that Ken Roberts chastised him for, for which he held hostage the tapes of the event for three months. In addition, $20,000 is unaccounted for as a final withdrawal that is not documented from the segregated event bank account I am attaching a statement for.

    I enjoyed your warmth and friendship during this period from June through August, 2000, when you and the President made my wife and I feel like family. Your warm letters and phone calls, your embraces and kisses when we met, the meals and events we shared together, and especially your and Chelsea’s heartfelt introduction of my wife to Barbara Streisand, led me to believe that we had succeeded in forging a real family friendship. Unfortunately these feelings were, at best, short lived.

    Starting with your campaign spokesmen’s “Judas Strategy,” employed when they twice disavowed me, and my contributions to your campaign, to the Washington Post, thereby lying to the people and the media, I witnessed that side of your personality that I had always believed was an invention of your political enemies. I continued with the erroneous assumption that it was only political expediency for your Senate campaign and the national Presidential campaign, that required less than honest candor in acknowledging our relationship because of the sensitivities generated by my anti-Communist misjudgments a quarter century ago. I even believed David Rosen’s and Jim Levin’s reassurances that after the election we could resume our budding friendship.

    Just a few days after the events in Los Angeles I was forced to ignore your campaign’s gutless and insulting decision to return the $2,000 check I gave you as part of the June 8, luncheon commitment, and the insensitivity of your statements that you would not accept ANY contribution whatsoever from me. This statement was made only days after you received the largest individual campaign contribution to a single candidate ever recorded in American history! So, a month later when David Rosen begged me to further contribute $55,000 to an abortion rights group that you had committed to based on my commitment relating to the Spago lunch, I ignored my better judgment and the more than $1.5 million I had already contributed on your behalf, so that your word would not be compromised.

    Thereafter, from November, 2000, I was preoccupied with the business and market issues that all internet related companies were dealing with, as well as more insidious and nefarious issues relating to actions taken by company management and others intent on ruining me and the company I founded. When your promised support for the first global broadcast of the Hollywood Christmas Parade we produced did not materialize, and the invitations offered to dinners and gatherings were withdrawn, and after making the final contribution on your behalf at David Rosen’s direction in October, the only communication I received from you, the President, or your intermediaries, was an irate e-mail from Jim Levin in November protesting my failure to make a $250,000 payment to the Clinton Library as I had committed to do in August.

    Thereafter, the “dot com” meltdown of the last quarter of 2000, resulted in my company, Stan Lee Media, along with more than 230 others, going into bankruptcy and the usual fingerpointing between management and others regarding whose fault it was. In my case, because of the Washington Post articles about my Cuban and cocaine convictions from the late 1970’s, I became a vulnerable scapegoat by all those wishing to avoid responsibility for their willful misconduct.

    Thus, in late February, after I had made numerous calls for several months to David Rosen about how you were going to report my contributions to the FEC to ensure their legality, I was shocked to discover through internet access to your campaign filings, that all my contributions to you and your campaign were not reported, that the only report, relating to the Hollywood Gala, was false as to the identity of the donor and the amount donated, and that you had thereby made me a co-conspirator with you and others in violating various Federal statutes and regulations.

    This was the fatal blow to any vestiges of friendship and respect that I may have retained towards you and the President, and it is this final betrayal that has precipitated my new adversarial posture towards you both, and your co-conspirators. I am now required by my conscience and sense of fair play to demand that you abide by the laws you swore to defend and uphold, which includes the requirement set out in Title 11 of the Code of Federal Regulations that you return all “illegal contributions within 30 days of determining the illegality.”

    The accounting provided in the attached copy of my Federal Election Commission complaint shall also serve as my notice to you and your Senate Campaign Committee, of the amount of the direct, in-kind contribution I made to you and your Senate campaign, and no other, and of the statutory requirement you have to return such monies, which statute you have been in violation of since March 1, 2001, thirty days after the amended filing of your FEC report which through their false reports made my contributions illegal de jure.

    Rather than perpetuating the signature Clinton ethic of denial, semantical and rhetorical responses to valid requests and questions, and stonewalling, it is time to accept your responsibility as a Federal elected official and do the right thing according to the letter of the law, the position your campaign spokespeople have taken, and natural laws of right and ethical conduct, and return the contributions I made, which you have by your collective actions, made illegal. Please direct your refund to my counsel at Judicial Watch.

    Govern Yourself Accordingly,

    Peter F. Paul

    Still nothing from Campaign. I guess they are all hoping the Craig non scandal will divert attention from yet another Clinton-Communist China-Campaign Scandal.

    Keep the pressure on! I will be calling their office, too. Tomorrow will be a good day to start the calls in earnest..

  13. Patrick Truax said, on September 4, 2007 at 3:37 am

    Yes tomorrow, I will also be calling the National Archives for Hillarys documents as First Lady. Craig Livingstone will be my focus. Who hired him? How did the USSS feel when he was hired to “Be White House Security”? I intend to keep the pressure on..
