Armey: Clinton, Gingrich had affair 'bond' By: Andy Barr October 28, 2010 05:23 PM EDT
Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey claims Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich developed a bond over the affairs they had in office, swapping stories over wine and cigars.
Clinton found out about the Gingrich affair and called Newt over to the White House for a private meeting between the two of them, Armey said in an interview with the World Magazine posted Thursday.
Clinton said, You and I are alike. Which meant, shut up about Monica or I'll start telling your story, Armey said. Newt and Clinton actually developed sort of a bond over it.
Gingrich, the former Republican speaker of the House, attacked the former Democratic president for his affair with Monica Lewinsky and was later exposed as having had his own affair at the time.
They had many meetings that we didn't know about where they'd drink wine and smoke cigars and talk about their girlfriends, said Armey,

The ick factor here is off the charts.
I don’t dare try to imagine it. LOL

This was talked about on FR back in the 90’s. Newt had many congressional investigations into the clinton crime machine shut down or severely curtailed in scope. Both are scum.
And.... the jockeying for 2012 begins.
But but its ok for Newt!!! He is one of us!!!....Ya
You ain't kiddin'!
Clinton giving Newt humidor advice.
Could not help notice that this was revealed by Dick Armey
I can visualize them in a snug love nest in Vermont softly murmering to each other thoughts of art and love.
Klinton propably gave Newtus one of his “dirty cigars” and was laughing every time Newt brought it to his lips to puff on it.
One of several reasons that Newt should never be nominated by the GOP.
At the time I noticed that, over night, Gingrich went from a hard-charger showing Clinton no mercy, to suddenly wanting to find common ground with the guy.
I said then, out loud, that Clinton had something on Gingrich. Which, as it turned out, he did.
At one time I’d have said Gingrich was going to remake Washington and then live in the White House. He blew it, and he’ll never get it back.
Well the bit of difference would be that Clinton lied about it, under oath, while being sued for sexual harassment.
Sick minds think alike.
No honor among theives.
Lie down with dogs and you'll get up with fleas.
I don’t believe Dick Armey.
It’s possible but how or why would Armey be privy to secret personal conversation? I think Armey is guessing.
So how did Dick find out? When and from whom?
This is one of those "something happened but I don't know exactly what so I'm going to let may imagination take me where it wants" stories.
You know, the sort of thing that you hear about J. Edgar Hoover or Lyndon Johnson or Nixon or the Kennedys.
And as one commenter noted, there just had to be a cigar somewhere in the story ...
Can you imagine how compromised Obama is as compared to Clinton and Gingrich. A national nightmare with a Narcissist who will do anything to hold power.
Some where in this story there shoud be a place for Dick Morris.
Newt should respond by endorsing Sarah Palin for 2012.
I hope it was worth never being president Newt.
I wonder if Bill offered Newt one of his 'special' cigars.
(This most recent incident of Armey's noxious behavior harkens back to the time about a dozen years ago, when Armey spread slanderous rumors about Brit Hume's son Sandy, after the latter's tragic suicide.)
Look, Newt is no way gonna be the candidate for prez in 2012, he ain’t even gonna run, so what is the point of Armey’s cheap-shot?
We’re stuck with Newt on the intellectual, thought-leadership side of the conservative movement—he’s all full of flaws but we’re gonna be associated with him in any case.
He also comes up with useful ideas and can be a fairly good attack dog when push comes to shove. So what purpose does it do our side to attack him when we know the Left will do it anyway? I don’t get this. And I don’t believe anything Armey is saying about cigars and a “mine’s-bigger-than-yours” meeting in the WH.
Armey is engaging in some sort of 8th grade catty girl talk here. How about we create the Karl Rove Award—given to the person on the right who does the best job of trashing someone else on the right
Few people in publ;ic service have disappointed me more thean Newt. Most of all, he gave the enemy the ammunition to destroy him. That cost the Republic dearly, at the worst time possible—1994 to 2000.
Agreed, nothing about it rings true nor is it timely.
And now we know why Newt seemed to never be able to resist Clintoon. He gave in on everything, once he and Sick Willie met to discuss.
Gad, what characters!
Wouldn’t doubt it at all.
Which is why I’m convinced Obama has something on Lindsay Graham.
Okay, I’ll say it. Clinton, Gingrich and Morris participated in a circle jerk.
No profanity here. Unless you know what I’m talking about. And trust me, I’ve never participated.
I guess we forget what happened to his replacement, Bob Livingston.
Everyone has something on Light in the Loafers Graham.
I wish Armey would dish ALL the dirt on Newt, so we can be so repulsed as to be finished with him once and for all. Frankly, his Dede Scozzafava betrayal ought to have been enough.
Wow. I sure had forgotten. But Newt’s promise was much greater.. What i was referring to was the ethics investigations surrounding his book deal. The one thing that stuck was the Renewing America college course (tax exempt used for political purposes). David Bonior threw everything at him and that’s the only thing that stuck. But it led to his downfall. Newt was in the crosshaors the minute he took out Jim Wright. He should have known better.
On Livingston: (Wikpedia)
“Livingston, considered a formidable lobbyist, was identified by Jonathan Tilove of the New Orleans Times-Picayune as supporting U.S. Representative Anh “Joseph” Cao.”
