Prosecutors investigating Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton were prepared to seek indictments of them for their roles in the Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky affairs, an explosive new book about the former president's scandals charges.

In "The Death of American Virtue: Clinton vs. Starr," due out in February, author Ken Gormley also says that Lewinsky believed Bill Clinton lied about their affair during grand jury testimony about his relationship with the White House intern.

"Yet the consensus was that any effort to prosecute Mrs. Clinton would be extremely risky," Gormley wrote.

Everyone (if the libs and the corrupt MSM) knew the Clintons were guilty of lying, perjury, obstruction of justice, abuse of power, and a host of other crimes.

Chuck Colson spent time in jail for obtaining one FBI file. The Clintons amassed thousands, and the raw data used to compile them. This constituted a crime of massive proportions.

The same people who went on TV everyday to lie about the magnitude of Democrat criminality via the Clintons are the same people today who are on TV selling Obama and his thugs.

Like Lanny Davis. He was "spinner in chief" for Bill and Hillary, and now is out there spinning the outrigth theft of our health insurance.

Hillary and Bill should have spent years in jail. Now, they are multi-millionaires, and she is Secretary of State for the corrupt Obama thug fest.

Your right on that one, The same people. I don’t believe this will resolve it’s self either. These people are now engaged in destroying our economy , Health care, and will tear down our borders to every one who wants to walk in here and sign on to the freebies they have crammed down our throats.

Something has to happen

In the end, the threat of real prosecution scarred the crap out of the Clintons. This is in the article:

After Starr left office, his successor, Robert Ray, sent a message to the ex-president that he was prepared to prosecute Bill Clinton. The books says Ray "took steps to instill the fear of God in the White House." "I wanted them to know I was coming," Ray said. "I was fully of the view that if I was not prepared to carry out the threat, it wasn't worth making." ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,In a deal with prosecutors on his last full day as president, Clinton acknowledged that he gave false testimony in the Lewinsky scandal, heading off the threat of indictment. As part of the deal, the president said he gave false answers in a January 1998 deposition, but he insisted he didn't do so knowingly, an important element of the crime of perjury.

The Clintons knew that, once out of power, they would be dead ducks. That is why they made this deal - and quickly, before he (and she) left the White House.

A "few" people William Jefferson Clinton didn't have to Pardon

Not saying the whole list is attributable to him...but some definitely are and all are suspicious.

Lewinsky was really, really lucky to have lived through this. Her squeeling to the “right friend” saved her life.

Hilly, Billy, Lanny. What a sordid legacy and what a pile of bodies were left in the wake of these two criminals.

And here is Hilly, still in harness working hard making an even bigger ass of herself while gleefully assisting the muslim in the destruction of America.

Bill and Hillary laid the groundwork for what is happening now...only they thought they’d control it at this point. IT will eat them first at this point.

What a stupid statement. Lewinsky believes Clinton lied about their affair? Why doesn't she KNOW he lied? If she doesn't know then who in the he** does?

What should be done is really simple if you think about it in context with the Attorney General we have today.

When the conservatives take over, reopen the investigation of the Clintons and prosecute them just as the DOJ is doing with the CIA interrogators. What's "good for the Goose is good for the Gander", so to speak. As a matter of fact, after doing the Clintons, then start on the D.O. J. prosecuting all those individuals within that department that violated the U.S. Constitution by their misuse of the legal process.

G_D, " I love the smell of napalm in the morning!" :O)

Indeed. The fact that the story exploded as it did saved her ample bottom.

Why, we were so close to coming down hard on them. Why, we were getting tough. Why, we were going to pound them. Why....

Sounds like they almost had the letter of stern warning nearly half-written.
