It was that chemistry. And was the fact that he was president part of that chemistry? I don’t know. Maybe. Probably. But it was – I was there because there was chemistry. I wasn’t there because, oh, this is the president. – Monica Lewinsky

Hillary Clinton vehemently denied in an interview Sunday that her husband’s extramarital affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky was an abuse of power and added that former President Bill Clinton was right not to resign amid a scandal that led to his impeachment on perjury and obstruction charges.
“Absolutely not,” the former first lady said during the CBS “Sunday Morning” interview when asked if Bill Clinton should have stepped down.
“It wasn’t an abuse of power?” CBS News correspondent Tony Dokoupil asked.
Clinton responded: “No. No.”
Hillary Clinton, who went on to be elected to the Senate and served as President Obama’s secretary of state, said the relationship was not an abuse of power because Lewinsky “was an adult.” At the time of the affair, Lewinsky was 22.
Separately, in 1999, former nursing home administrator Juanita Broaddrick said Clinton raped her in a hotel room in 1978, when he was attorney general of Arkansas. Clinton denied the accusations.
Hillary Clinton ultimately brought the topic of conversation to President Trump.
“But let me ask you this: Where’s the investigation of the current incumbent, against whom numerous allegations have been made, and which he dismisses, denies, and ridicules?” she said. “So, there was an investigation [of Bill], and it, as I believe, came out in the right place.”
Clinton’s comments came quickly after she rejected any comparisons between her husband’s actions and the allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during the confirmation process.
Calling Kavanaugh’s swearing-in ceremony at the White House “a political rally” in a CNN interview last week, Clinton lambasted the justice and Trump.
“It further undermined the image and integrity of the court,” she said. “And that troubles me greatly, it saddens me, because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government.”
Clinton also blasted Trump’s treatment of Christine Blasey Ford, who testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her allegation that Kavanaugh assaulted her at a high school party in 1982.
“The president’s been true to form,” Clinton said, according to The Hill. “He has insulted, attacked, demeaned women throughout the campaign, really for many years leading up to the campaign, and he’s continued to do that inside the White House.”
What a hypocrite.
It appears that “The Queen of Mean” is counting on Americans having short memories.
Let’s take a stroll down Memory Lane, shall we?
Back in the Bill Clinton era, White House advisor Betsey Wright coined the term “bimbo eruptions” to describe a long list of presidential gal pals.
BIll “Bubba” Clinton’s Bimbo List” included, but is not limited to (I’m sure) Jennifer Flowers, Former Miss America Elizabeth Ward, Paul Corbin Jones, and, of course, Monica Lewinsky.
The Lewinsky scandal was a sensation that enveloped the presidency of Bill Clinton in 1998–99, leading to his impeachment by the U.S. House of Representatives and acquittal by the Senate.
Paula Corbin Jones, a former Arkansas state worker who claimed that Bill Clinton had accosted her sexually in 1991 when he was governor of Arkansas, had brought a sexual harassment lawsuit against the president. In order to show a pattern of behavior on Clinton’s part, Jones’s lawyers questioned several women believed to have been engaging in sex with him. On Jan. 17, 1998, Bubba took the stand, becoming the first sitting president to testify as a civil defendant.
During this testimony, Clinton denied having had an affair with Monica S. Lewinsky, an unpaid intern and later a paid staffer at the White House who worked in the White House from 1995–96. Lewinsky had earlier, in a deposition in the same case, also denied having such a relationship. Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel in the Whitewater case, had already received tape recordings made by Linda R. Tripp (a former coworker of Lewinsky’s) of telephone conversations in which Lewinsky described her involvement with the president. Asserting that there was a “pattern of deception,” Starr obtained from Attorney General Janet Reno permission to investigate the matter.
The president publicly denied having had a relationship with Lewinsky and charges of covering it up. His adviser, Vernon Jordan, denied having counseled Lewinsky to lie in the Jones case, or having arranged a job for her outside Washington, to help cover up the affair. Hillary Clinton claimed that a “vast right-wing conspiracy” was trying to destroy her husband, while Republicans and conservatives portrayed him as immoral and a liar.
In March, Jordan and others testified before Starr’s grand jury, and lawyers for Paula Jones released papers revealing, among other things, that Clinton, in his January deposition, had admitted to a sexual relationship in the 1980s with Arkansas entertainer Gennifer Flowers, a charge he had long denied. In April, however, Arkansas federal judge Susan Webber Wright dismissed the Jones suit, ruling that Jones’s story, if true, showed that she had been exposed to “boorish” behavior but not sexual harassment; Jones appealed.
In July, Starr granted Lewinsky immunity from perjury charges, and Clinton agreed to testify before the grand jury. He did so on Aug. 17, then went on television to admit the affair with Lewinsky and ask for forgiveness. In September, Starr sent a 445-page report to the House of Representatives, recommending four possible grounds for impeachment: perjury, obstruction of justice, witness tampering, and abuse of authority.
On Dec. 19, Clinton became the second president (after Andrew Johnson) to be impeached, on two charges: perjury—in his Aug., 1998, testimony—and obstruction of justice. The vote in the House was largely along party lines.
In Jan., 1999, the trial began in the Senate. On Feb. 12, after a trial in which testimony relating to the charges was limited, the Senate rejected both counts of impeachment. The perjury charge lost, 55–45, with 10 Republicans joining all 45 Democrats in voting against it; the obstruction charge drew a 50–50 vote. Subsequently, on Apr. 12, Judge Wright, who had dismissed the Jones case, found the president in contempt for lying in his Jan., 1998, testimony, when he denied the Lewinsky affair. In July, Judge Wright ordered the president to pay nearly $90,000 to Ms. Jones’s lawyers. On Jan. 19, 2001, the day before he left office, President Clinton agreed to admit to giving false testimony in the Jones case and to accept a five-year suspension of his law license and a $25,000 fine in return for an agreement by the independent counsel, Robert W. Ray (Starr’s successor), to end the investigation and not prosecute him.
In a later interview, Hillary claimed that Bill suffered childhood abuse which may have caused him to philanderer and experience “bimbo eruptions” later in life. She described her philandering husband as “a hard dog to keep on the porch”.
Fast forwarding to her own scandals…
What Americans witnessed during the FBI’s lackadaisical investigation of Hillary Clinton’s Scandal known as E-mailgate, was an unequal application of the rule of law as applies to Professional Politicians in general and, in this case, specifically, a former member of the Obama Administration.
Leading up to that fateful day on which Hillary Clinton’s unholy quest for power got derailed, the CBS Morning News presented a poll in which 60% of Americans believed that Clinton lied about her mishandling of emails containing top secret information which could have potentially put the lives of our military and covert operatives at risk.
Now, that was a CBS poll, which of course was weighted heavily in favor of Liberals, so you can imagine how folks like you and me out here in Flyover Country feel about the situation to this very day.
On top of that was the Clinton Foundation Scandal…
Senior foundation officials coordinated with the State Department to give “Friends of Bill” Clinton preferential treatment during earthquake recovery efforts in Haiti in 2010, according to emails obtained by the Republican National Committee through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit.
Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra pledged $100 million to the foundation in 2005 and later benefited from the foundation’s work in Colombia, where he used the land he acquired in the country to set up an oil business, according to the Post.
The foundation has received millions of dollars from foreign governments such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the Netherlands, Canada, Sweden and Ireland.
But donations to the foundation have dropped by 37 percent to $108 million last year after allegations that Hillary Clinton used the charity to solicit million-dollar donations from foreign governments and corporations in exchange for favorable treatment from the State Department while Hillary was Secretary of State.
Hillary Clinton left the Clinton Foundation in April 2015 to run for president.
Our government was never meant to be a feudal system. America remains a Constitutional Republic.
American Politicians were never meant to be Lords, who would remain in power in perpetuity. Our Founding Fathers envisioned Citizen Statesman, who after serving their country and their communities for a short period of time, would return to their homes, to their families, and to their trades.
The Democrats, like Hillary herself, wanted to rule our nation in perpetuity and are throwing a never-ending National Temper Tantrum, which they have named “The Resistance”, over the fact that average Americans, like you and me, ruined the best-laid plans of mice and Pajama-boys by electing Donald J. Trump to be the 45th President of the United States of America.
Hillary’s hypocritical never-ending attacks of President Trump are just the accusations of a dejected over being rejected politician attempting to remain relevant within her own political party.
For all of the Liberals’ “concern” over Trump, they have yet to show evidence of collusion with the Russians nor evidence of a crime which he has committed.
And, for Hillary to be encouraging a continued division of America, is the biggest display of sour grapes that America has ever seen.
Like Golem went into the volcano after his “Precious”, so the Liberal Democrats, including Hillary, are ending their political lives with their quest to overthrow the wish of the American People to have Donald J. Trump as our 45th President.
The 2018 Midterm Elections are not just going to be a Red Wave…they are going to be a Red Tsunami.
And, the Far Left Democrats will have no one to blame but themselves.
