“E-mailgate Lawyer Emerges in Riady Scandal

The Clinton-Gore administration’s Chinagate scandal collided with the the missing White House e-mail probe on Friday, when it was learned that a lawyer representing witnesses claiming they were intimidated by senior administration officials also represents Indonesian billionaire James Riady.

Earl Silbert, a former U.S. attorney recruited by Northrop Grumman Corp. after its employees detailed threats from senior White House officials, helped negotiate Riady’s plea bargain with the Clinton-Gore Justice Department.

Justice Department investigators have accused Riady of illegally funneling up to a million dollars into Democratic Party coffers. As part of his plea bargain, Riady will pay a record fine of $8.6 million dollars but will face no jail time.

Northrop Grumman was contracted to retrieve hundreds of thousands of missing White House e-mails believed to be relevant to the investigation of several Clinton administration scandals, including Chinagate.

Northrop Grumman computer expert Betty Lambuth alleged last year that she and other company employees involved in the e-mail retrieval project were ordered to stay silent about their work or face imprisonment.

“We have a jail cell with your name on it,” one Clinton official allegedly warned.

In December, the Washington, D.C.-based legal watchdog group Judicial Watch uncovered handwritten notes suggesting that the Riady lawyer may have colluded with the White House counsel’s office to cover up the jail threats.

“[Silbert’s] notes do not lie, and they strongly suggest that he advised the White House Counsel of both the continuing e-mail cover-up and the threat to the Northrop Grumman employees,” Judicial Watch charged in a Dec. 21 press release.

“All taken care of,” Silbert noted after a conversation with White House lawyers. “No Committees yet raising issues.”

On Friday, the Wall Street Journal quoted Silbert’s statement about Riady’s plea bargain, issued jointly with Riady co-counsel and former Clinton impeachment attorney Abbe Lowell.

“After being accused in the press of being a Chinese spy, someone who gives hush money and a fugitive from justice, Mr. Riady is very pleased that the Department of Justice has been able to learn that none of these charges are true,” the two lawyers said.

The Journal did not note Silbert’s role in the White House e-mail scandal.”
