I, however, think it's obvious he committed perjury. I also think it's asinine to say that his perjury was actually an obstruction of justice when justice was not at all obstructed by his lies.
How was justice obstructed by his lies? How did his lies obstruct the Jones case? (hint: the case would have had the same exact result even if Clinton had told the truth)
just because something seems obvious to you doesn't mean you have it right. You are perfectly capable of being wrong.And whats obvious to some isnt obviously obvious to others.
Uh, the motive for sexual harassment is pretty cut and dry. No need for questioning.Me...I tend to look at someone lying while under oath as trying to avoid disclosure for motive ...hence...obstruction.
See, now you contradict yourself. You are admitting that this is just your opinion, even though previously tyou try to portray it as solid fact. That's lying.But thats just me.
Facts also state that he lied for a cause. Very few people lie for no reason.
What the facts don't show is that he lied for the prupose of obstructing justice. There are other possible reasons for him lying, not the least of them being that he was a married man.
The facts also show that the questioning did not have any legitimate point with regard to proving Jones' case that he sexually harassed her. Regardless of how he answered, the questions were not about what he did during the alleged incident. They were about a completely unrelated incident of consensual sex with someone else entirely. They were an attempt at character assassination.
One must look at this case as one looks at ALL criminal cases. Innocent until proven guilty.
It's pretty obvious that he was proven to be guilty of perjury.
He was not proven to be guilty of obstruction of justice because there was no evidence which was presented which proved that he lied in order to obstruct justice.
The idea that he was guilty of this crime is merely an opinion, and it is one that is not supported by facts. It is entirely based on conjecture.
