    He broke the law and tried to obstruct justice.

    Maybe the reason why the "Bush lied" accusation from the Democrats never really took hold was the fact that they spent the former 8 years excusing Clintons lies that no one could take such hypocrisy seriously. Especially since they still have no evidence.

    The impeachment of President Clinton was absolutely just. It should have been cheaper, but was warranted. The man had an illegal sexual affair with a person under his chain-of-command. He then lied about it under oath. He should have been impeached for trying to convince me that a blow job isn't sex. A Rhodes scholar doesn't know the meaning of the word "is"? Give me a break.

    The only way they could get Clinton was to entrap him into a Grand Jury.

    Here in America it's not a crime to lie. Clinton can lie all he wants about not having sex with that girl and still be blemish free of any criminal wrong doing. But if one is dragged into a Grand Jury, then the picture changes.

    Being in a Grand Jury is weird because even if you lied about a non crime you can get in trouble and this is what they wanted to entrap Clinton with.

    It gets even more bizzarre when you think of those that go into a rampage over a lie about a non crime and say nothing of being lied into a war which so far has killed our soldiers.

    Lying under oath is called perjury. It is a crime. So is obstruction of justice. As for your problem with grand jury. You feel the same about Scooter Libby?

    Not to mention Sandy Burgler who stole classified documnets to cover up Clinton blunders, while working for Kerry.

    It appears you are confusing two different things. Lying about a non crime is one thing an example of this would be to say I didn't have sex with that girl. Having sex is not a crime and lying about it is not a crime, unless I'm in a Grand Jury.

    On the other hand if one lies to cover up a crime, that is another matter and more serious. In the case of Libby, the investigators were looking for the leaker of Plame's identity. Leaking her identity is a crime under current statues.

    Libby tried to convince the Jury that he learned the identity from reporters. Reporters on the other hand tried to convince the Jury they learned the identity from Libby. Both cannot be true.

    Leaking an agents identity is a crime, having sex is not a crime.

    Last time I checked when you put your hand on the Bible and swear to tell the truth, it does not exclude sex.

    linton lied under oath and that is a crime. It does not matter what he lied about.
