GUEST,Arne Langsetmo BS: Woodward blows Scooter indictment away (94* d) RE: BS: Woodward blows Scooter indictment away 19 Nov 05


BB:

*sigh*

Guest,

"Do try to get your facts straight. Clinton was never charged with "falsifying evidence before a committee" "

I said grand jury

Yep. I heard you the first time and the second time you said this (and corrected you in the meanwhile).

There was no grand jury in the Paula Jones case.

Here's what you said, BB: "Clinton committed perjury when he gave a sworn deposition to the Paula Jones grand jury..."

It was a civil case, BB. No grand juries for civil cases. So before youget all high'n'mighty, you ought to get your own "facts" straight (particularly when your own error has already been pointed out and you've been put on notice).

"The only one around that lied to a grand jury was Scooter."

An obvious false statement.

Guess that's for a jury to decide, eh?

Arne,

"Clinton's peni$! Clinton's peni$! Hey, lookie over there, it's *GAWD* Clinton's peni$!!!" is YOUR preoccupation- I have ONLY talked about his DOCUMENTED LIES to a grand jury. It does not matter what they were about- as it does not matter what the lies Scooter may have told- IF ONE LIES UNDER OATH, one should be punished.


Can you say "acquitted", Bruce? How about "Not Guilty!". Rehnquist could, so maybe you can manage it as well....

It does matter what the alleged lies were about, and to Republicans, that would be Clinton's peni$. Just to get an idea of the excesses and the smarminess of the panty-sniffing Starr, here's this tidbit:



    "In the latest travesty, as revealed by the Washington Post,
    Starr used prosecutors and FBI agents to interrogate Arkansas
    state troopers about women with whom Bill Clinton allegedly had
    affairs prior to his presidency. Starr's deputy argues that
    they had a duty to find out whether Clinton might have confided
    some incriminating statements to these women. Fine--until you
    consider the questions Starr's agents actually asked. They
    wanted to know whether one woman had borne a child who
    resembled Clinton and whether any of the officers had witnessed
    Clinton having sex with local women."

    (U.S. News and World Report, July 21, 1997)


This long before Lewinsky fell into Starr's lap, and he found something to try and engineer a perjury trap on. Now that's pathetic. Actually, it's a bit pathological. You know, BB, it's the Republicans that seem to be fine exemplars of some really twisted shite (perhaps due to their repression and self-loathing). Just go Google "Republican family values", and you'll get some really perverted tidbits right near the top.....

Cheers,
