Today, Let Thanksgiving for All We Have Owned!

22 February 2001 …… There’s more controversy about the pardons issued by Bill Clinton during his last days in office. It’s emerged he pardoned two clients of his brother-in-law Hugh Rodham – and that Mr Rodham profited from the deal because he’d been paid to lobby on their behalf. Hugh Rodham’s involvement in a payment-for-pardon scandal is not the first time he has brought embarrassment to his big sister, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and her husband, the ex-President. Rodham and another brother, Tony, infuriated the White House in 1999 when it was revealed they were involved in an 8 million deal to export hazelnuts from the former Soviet Republic of Georgia. The deal involved a Georgian opposition leader who said it showed President Clinton supported him. That angered Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze, a US ally. “Normally, we excuse the Ralph Kramden-Ed Norton schemes of greedy first in-laws trying to trade on the family name,” the GOP national chairman said at the time. “But these two hazelnuts didn’t fall too far from the family tree.” Hugh Rodham also made the Clintons wince when he was part of a group of lawyers who squeezed their way into talks between cigarette companies and state attorneys general in 1996 to settle lawsuits against Big Tobacco. The lawyers stood to earn millions, but the deal collapsed, partly because Rodham’s role upset Republicans in Congress. Friendly and bearlike – his appearance has been compared to “Norm” on the TV show “Cheers
