Hillary on wiretapping

If new allegations are true, while Hillary opposes wiretapping terrorists, she apparently thinks its OK to wiretap her political opponents:

Republicans are focusing on an allegation in a recent book by two Pulitzer
Prize-winning reporters, which suggests 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 listened to a secretly recorded audiotape of a phone conversation of Clinton critics plotting their next attack.“…Bill’s supporters monitored frequencies used by cell phones, and the tape was made during one of those monitoring sessions.”

A GOP official said, “Hillary Clinton’s campaign hypocrisy continues to know no bounds. It is rather unbelievable that Clinton would listen in to conversations being conducted by political opponents, but refuse to allow our intelligence agencies to listen in to conversations being conducted by terrorists as they plot and plan to kill
us (TheHill.com).
