Hillary Clinton Finance Chairman Indicted With Help From Judicial Watch Client

Peter Paul’s Cooperation With Justice Department Leads To Charges Against Rosen

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, hailed news of the indictment of Sen. Hillary Clinton’s former Senate campaign finance chairman, David Rosen, on campaign finance charges related to a fund-raising event produced and paid for by Judicial Watch client Peter F. Paul.

Mr. Paul, a former Hollywood Internet entrepreneur and partner of Spiderman creator Stan Lee, spent nearly $2 million to produce in August 2000 a Hollywood tribute to honor President Clinton and to help raise funds for Hillary Clinton’s 2000 U.S. Senate campaign. He was repeatedly assured that his expenses would be reported to the Federal Election Commission.

The Justice Department indictment, unsealed today, charges Rosen with causing false campaign finance reports to be filed with the FEC. Rosen reported contributions of only $400,000 from the Hollywood gala. He also is alleged to have filed a fraudulent invoice for the cost of the concert portion of the gala, reporting $200,000 when the actual cost was more than $600,000. Rosen faces up to five years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines on each of four counts of making a false statement.

Judicial Watch brought a lawsuit in 2001 on behalf of Mr. Paul against Bill and Hillary Clinton, Rosen and other Clinton representatives after Mr. Clinton reneged on a $17 million deal to work for Mr. Paul’s Internet companies after he left the White House and because Mr. Paul’s expenses were not reported by Hillary Clinton to the FEC, as was required by law. Mr. Paul has documentary evidence of his close relationship with the Clintons, including checks, thank-you notes from the Clintons and candid video and photographs. Hillary Clinton was intimately involved in setting up the Hollywood gala and knew of the FEC misreporting.

“Judicial Watch welcomes the indictment of David Rosen on campaign finance charges, an indictment that was made possible by our client Peter Paul’s cooperation with the U.S. Justice Department,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “We hope the Justice Department pursues this case all the way to Hillary Clinton.”

Judicial Watch Client, Peter Paul, Has Proof of $2 Million in Campaign Contributions Never Reported to FEC Concerning Hillary Clinton’s Senate Campaign

Mr. Paul Indicted Last Friday For Alleged Securities Violations

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch, the public interest law firm that investigates and prosecutes government abuse and corruption, has been representing Peter Paul, an international businessman who financed the “Hollywood Tribute to Bill Clinton” shortly before the Democratic National Convention last year on August 12, 2000. Mr. Paul made over $2 million in direct and in kind campaign contributions to the Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign to finance the “Hollywood Tribute to Bill Clinton” – which served as a fundraiser for then First Lady Hillary Clinton. Importantly, Mr. Paul can document with actual checks the contributions to Hillary Clinton’s campaign as well as personal “thank you” notes from Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton. In addition, video and photos exist depicting the closeness of Mr. Paul and the Clintons and underscoring the Clintons’ deep thanks for Mr. Paul’s generosity, among other matters.

Witnesses to this latest Clinton scandal include a number of Hollywood stars, including but not limited to Barbra Streisand, Brad Pitt, John Travolta, Cher and others. In addition, former Philadelphia Mayor Ed Rendell and Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe are implicated. With regard to Rendell, he played a role in Mr. Paul’s request for a Presidential pardon for two prior convictions, with Rendell asking for an additional $150,000. Mr. Paul made the over $2 million in contributions to Mrs. Clinton as part of a $17 million deal to induce Bill Clinton to work with his business ventures after he left The White House.

Judicial Watch and Mr. Paul have been cooperating with U.S. Attorney’s Offices in the Eastern District of New York, Southern District of New York, District of New Jersey and Central District of California. Last Friday, a sealed indictment was issued concerning Mr. Paul, who was alleged to have engaged in improper securities transactions.

“Mr. Paul has offered his full cooperation to the Justice Department in bringing the Clintons to justice,” stated Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel Larry Klayman.

“Mr. Paul is currently conducting business in Brazil and most recently was interviewed by ABC News on camera for an upcoming “20/20" piece. He has also been cooperating with The New York Times and looks forward to the truth coming out to the American people,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
