    Wrong. A deal was reached the day before Clinton left office in which he admitted to being "misleading and evasive" and gave up his license for 5 years. He is now eligible to get it back, though I do not know if he has. Clinton Eligible, Once Again, To Practice Law - The New York Sun

    Obviously he shouldn't have lied under oath, but that was your classical Republican witch hunt. Throw the crap against the wall and see what sticks. It just so happens it worked.
    But see, some republicans are hypocrites, in other words, do as we say, not as we do. Gingrich carried on an extramarital affair while he led the charge to toast Clinton.

    So? Did he lie under oath about it? Was he under impeachment at the time? Do you even know what the original charges against Clinton were?

    Again, they got Al Capone for tax evasion, not his other criminal activities, not murder, not robbery, tax evasion. Doesn't mean he wasn't guilty of all that, that's just what they finally got him on.

    Oh Newt wasn't impeached cause he wasn't president, and adultery isn't a crime!

    Yeah except I posted what I did in response to your claim that he wasn't even close to being convicted of perjury. He was indeed very close, that's why the deal and the settling out of court.

    Don't suppose you actually read that did you? The article title is a lie.

    But his own divorce attorney, Randy Evans, who is his personal attorney to this day, acknowledged to The Daily Beast, “There was never a deposition.” Douglas Vassy, the attorney for his first wife, Jackie Battley, who was scheduled in court papers to conduct Newt’s deposition, says, “There was no deposition.” John Mayoue, the lawyer for Gingrich’s second wife, Marianne, told us, “Simply put, he was never deposed.” Court officials interviewed by The Daily Beast in the two different Georgia county courthouses reviewed the files and found no depositions.
    So much for him "lying under oath". Adultery isn't a crime (well, it is in some states), but perjury is.

    Oh an btw, you don't have to be the president to be impeached. Your attempts at distraction noted.

    Nice try, but in fact the vote was 27 shy of what was needed for conviction. That is what we call "not even close".
