What happened sexually between Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton might be a personal matter, but he did perjure himself when questioned about the incident, and that is a public matter.

Add "obstruction of justice"...

Irrelevant...

You're using the same argument ACORN is trying to use on the film-makers...

Just because the accusation was made under false pretenses doesn't mean that crimes were NOT committed...

Cops and other law enforcement do it in the form of stings every day...But just because the hooker was really a cop doesn't make the "john" looking for a quick hit innocent...

Yes he did what he did. I am not saying it is ok to lie to a grand jury.
I am saying the people who pursued him in this were politically motivated. They tried to get him with whitewater and when they failed they went after personal stuff they should never have gone after. In fact I wonder if ML has ever thought of suing those who locked her and her mother in a room and wouldn't let her go till she told them about an affair or something juicy enough to bring to a court hearing.
Some people (myself included) did not want to know the bathroom antics of public figures. It is not to save Clinton's ass. It is just too gross, too personal too weird. What I call "normal" people don't want that kind of insight.

Try again...

Quote:
On January 15, Starr obtained approval from Attorney General Janet Reno, who in turn sought and received an order from the United States Court of Appeals, to expand the scope of the Whitewater probe into the new allegations.
Are you insinuating that JANET RENO was a rightwinger looking for a partisan political advantage?...
