    Disagreed. Clintons VAWA made past behavior relevant where it had not been earlier.
    I don't see how dates w/Jennifer Flowers and Monica Lewinsky cigar tricks rise to "violence against women" but ok.

This was discovered in a CIA investigation that has gone on for some time and was not specifically looking for this particular case.
    I may have been a a little behind on the story but I did know about the FBI investigation and read she was only suspected of being exposed to classified info. Patraeus wasn't under investigation and she has not been charged with anything yet. I'm not ready to believe everything the gov leaks as 100% because they're so honest with the public. I still think it's awful convenient that Patraeus no longer will appear before the Senate and Mike Morell will instead. And I bet even if this is ONLY exactly what they say that there's many, many other stories related to sensitive material, especially CIA that we will never know about.

    Shades of J. Edgar Hoover:

    An honest, honorable general is scheduled to give testimony that would be damning to a dishonest, less than honorable President.

    The President wants to have the testimony make the President look good, a seemingly impossible task. So..........the President gets something dirty on the General and tells the General the testimony that the General is to provide under sworn testimony, all lies, but it makes the president again look like a hero instead of a clown. Refuse, the President tells the General, and the President will ruin the General's marriage and career by publishing the indiscretion.

    The General, like so many honorable men when faced with blackmail, refuses to lie and instead, publishes his own indiscretion and resigns. Now he can give honest testimony if subpoenaed if he doesn't die in an accident first.

    It appears that wasn't the case with Patreaus either. It seems that the FBI initially mistook emails to his girlfriend as irregular....it turns out there was no compromise of classified information. See Nota Bene's post on the matter.

    I stand corrected.

    They don't. But VAWA allowed testimony regarding prior bad acts, and Clinton lied.

    Clinton lied? You've got to be kidding? All politicians lie it's what they do....lol

    I wish we could make them pay for all the false campaign promises they make. But unfortunately people want to hear lies or we'd vote in an honest person. Hmmm....

    Well, isn't that just a stroke of luck for Obama? And a week before hearings on Benghazi too....My goodness....Obama needs to give me some lottery numbers for next week, he's so lucky it is amazing.
