Dole/Kemp '96 National Co-Chairman William J. Bennett, former President Ronald Reagan's drug czar, raised two possible questions today on the episode of the twice convicted drug smuggler, Jorge Cabrera, to dinner at the White house in exchange for a $20,000 contribution. * What should young people think when the president invites convicted drug dealers to the white house and laughingly tells them on MTV that if he had it to do over, he would inhale when he "tried" marijuana. * Why was the White House checking hundreds of FBI files of Republicans who, under prior administrations, had access to the White House, while, at the same time, not even checking the FBI files of people given access to the White House, if they had contributed large sums of money to the Democratic National Committee. Could a terrorist or assassin gain access to the President merely by contributing a large sum of money to the Democrat National Committee? Bennett stated: "For some time, I and many others have been highly critical of Bill Clinton's unwillingness to continue the successful Reagan/Bush fight against drugs. Now comes further astounding evidence of the Clinton administration's laxity. "According to reports, the Clinton White House invited Jorge Cabrera, a convicted big-time cocaine trafficker, into the White House in return for a $20,000 payment to the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Let me underscore this fact: Cabrera had been indicted and convicted on two separate occasions prior to his $20,000 payment to the DNC. Cabrera had his picture taken with the First Lady and another picture taken with the Vice President, yet barely a month after attending a White House pre-Christmas event, Cabrera was arrested again in a drug bust that seized 6,000 pounds of cocaine. "This is outrageous; it is shameless; it is reprehensible; and when it comes to the Clinton White House, it has become all too predictable. A question: instead of spending so much time improperly collecting hundreds of FBI files on former Republican officials, why wasn't the Clinton White House checking the files on the convicted drug kingpin they embraced in return for $20,000? The scandals continue to pile up, one after another, as the Clinton White House continues to define the presidency down." _________________________________________________________________ HotTopics Online Preprocessor Copyright © 1996, 1997 Waveshift New Media Technologies, Inc.
