Hillary Gets Served... a NYT reporter no less.

"...A recent book by two Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters, [says] Clinton listened to a secretly recorded conversation between political opponents.

In their book about Clinton’s rise to power, Her Way, Don Van Natta Jr., an investigative reporter at The New York Times, and Jeff Gerth, who spent 30 years as an investigative reporter at the paper, wrote: “Hillary’s defense activities ranged from the inspirational to the microscopic to the down and dirty. She received memos about the status of various press inquiries; she vetted senior campaign aides; and she listened to a secretly recorded audiotape of a phone conversation of Clinton critics plotting their next attack.

“The tape contained discussions of another woman who might surface with allegations about an affair with Bill,” Gerth and Van Natta wrote in reference to Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton. “Bill’s supporters monitored frequencies used by cell phones, and the tape was made during one of those monitoring sessions.” (source)

Not surprising that the GOP contension is --how can Hillary oppose wiretapping and listening to conversations of terrorists and suspected terrorists (serving the nation) when it was perfectly acceptable for her to do it during a campaign (self serving). And wasn't this what Nixon resigned for...?
