I wonder what this is all about ?


A federal judge has ordered the unsealing of documents from then-Independent Counsel Ken Starr’s two-decade old probe that led to former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment.

Chief Judge Beryl A. Howell of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia granted the order Monday in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from CNN.

According to the judge’s order, CNN journalist Katelyn Polantz requested on Feb. 9, 2018 that eight sealed matters arising from Starr’s 1998 investigation of Clinton “be unsealed and made public.”

Starr’s investigation began with the suicide of Clinton adviser Vince Foster and the Clintons’ Whitewater real estate deal in Arkansas. But it later expanded to include accusations of sexual misconduct and perjury, including Clinton’s relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives in December 1998. Clinton was acquitted of the charges by the Senate, with no Democrats voting to remove him from office.

The request from CNN includes testimony from former Clinton aides and advisers Bruce Lindsey, Sidney Blumenthal, Nancy Hernreich, Lanny Breuer and Terry Lenzner, as well as testimony from the Secret Service. It also requests other White House documents, in addition to a presidential subpoena.

The FOIA request from CNN indicated the documents could be relevant to procedures for obtaining testimony in special counsel Robert Mueller’s current Russia probe.

It’s not clear when the documents will be released, but Howell ordered them available to the public “promptly.”

More uncovering of the lifelong Clinton corruption.

Sidenote. The Bill Clinton matter was an eye opener for me as to how people perceive right and wrong in politics. At the time a fellow I worked with fully supported the Clintons in the matter commenting "Clinton didn't do anything I wouldn't do if I had the chance". Roll Eyes

Clinton was an unusual combination of intelligence, charisma and ambition, undiluted by any notions of morality or personal responsibility. He was inspired by John Kennedy to want to be President in the worst way, which eventually he was.




Luckily, I have enough willpower to control the driving ambition that rages within me.

When you had the votes, we did things your way. Now, we have the votes and you will be doing things our way. This lesson in political reality from Lyndon B. Johnson

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

I think the GDC media is tired of the slow pace and no real progress in the Mueller probe. They need fresh shit to shovel at Trump and will demand every procedure used against slick Willie be employed against Trump, warranted or not.

CNN is requesting this release.

CNN. The "Clinton News Network".

What are they up to? What's their angle? How are they going to spin this?

I smell a rat.


Thanks,

Bill was a victim of sexual predator females only interested in him for his fame.

It's all right here I this sentence, ".......CNN indicated the documents could be relevant to procedures for obtaining testimony in special counsel Robert Mueller’s current Russia probe."

They are looking for ways to force Trump to testify. Seems they have more faith in Starr's ability to prosecute a case than Mueller's.
