    He was able to perjure himself because he had no problem looking straight at the cameras and lying to the American people. Nobody forced Bill Clinton to lie. Please don't blame Republicans or Monica or anybody else but Bill Clinton for his lies. That was his choice and his character failing alone.

    I dont really give a **** about his perjury. That had nothing to do with the point I was trying to make but you conservatives come in here, read one of my posts and all you want to talk about is his damn perjury. Why don't you read the conversation instead of only the part of me defending my previous statements.

    Answer me this, would he have ever had the opportunity to perjure himself had there not been a witch hunt?

    God, how patient are Thy poor! These corporations and masters of manipulation in finance heaping up great fortunes by a system of legalized extortion,
    and then exacting from the contributors--to whom a little means so much--a double share to guard the treasure!

    Clinton v. Jones - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If you are being sued for sexual harrassment of one of your employees, you can be damn certain that your boinking of an intern is pertinent to the case. Further, if you lie about it to the court, ask other witnesses to lie about it, and/or try to hide behind the power of your office, your career is not likely to survive unless your name is Bill Clinton.

    I don't believe anyone is claiming that Clinton harassed Monica. Both Clinton and Lewinski lied to the court about their relationship in an effort to protect the president from a sexual harassment lawsuit (brought by another of his employees). If Lewinsky had told the truth from the beginning, she might have suffered Clinton's wrath, but then again he might have been convicted after impeachment and she'd have a sure-fire book deal.

    Yes. He did not want to lose the sexual harassment case that was brought against him, so he did not want a judge/jury to know that he was boinking an intern. He tried to use his office to prevent the suit from going forward and when that didn't work, he lied about it in a deposition. What does that have to do with your perceived witch hunt?

    A search for the truth is now called a 'witch hunt'? Shades of Benghazi!!

    Bill Clinton brought himself down. He and his wife also tried to ruin the reputation of the woman, and succeeded at that very well.

    And yet, even brought down, he was a very successful POTUS.

    It was Monica Lewinsky who was brought dwn by the Clinton political machine, as was Linda Tripp.

    Yes, both Clintons have done very well and have made millions, probably billions..

    But for those two women, and the fact that a major American political party now happily accepts and defends a continuance of lying in their ranks, it is not so good.

    Good Lord, Monica seems to bear no responsibility for her own actions to some people here,
