(Before It's News)

Clintons lies fact, Bill and Hillary, Kenneth Starr before House Judiciary Committee, Clinton lied under oath obstructed justice and attempted to thwart not just Paula Jones’ sexual harassment lawsuit but Starr’s grand jury probe as well

“As I stated earlier, this is not about sex or private conduct, it is about multiple obstructions of justice, perjury, false and misleading statements, witness tamperings and abuses of power, all committed or orchestrated by the President of the United States.”…David Schippers report to House Judiciary Committee

“I watched her on countless occasions blatantly lie to the American people and knowingly lie.”…Linda Tripp

“Billy and Hillary Clinton continue to be lying, cheating, manipulative, scratching, clawing, ruthlessly aggressive, insatiably ambitious politicians who are giving public service a bad name – and nothing about them has changed in the past forty-plus years, except that they have deluded more and more people,”…Dolly Kyle Browning

Both of the Clintons, Bill and Hillary, are sociopaths and subsequently liars.

They will say and do anything to fulfill their agenda.

This is backed up by fact, court documents, extremely reliable witnesses, unlike the accusations the mainstream media is manufacturing to attack Trump.

Here is a very powerful example of Bill Clinton, as CNN stated November 18, 1998:

“Clinton lied under oath, obstructed justice and attempted to thwart not just Paula Jones’ sexual harassment lawsuit but Starr’s grand jury probe as well.”

““On at least six different occasions — from December 17, 1997, through August 17, 1998 — the president had to make a decision,” Starr told lawmakers. “He could choose truth or he could choose deception. On all six occasions, the president chose deception.””

From CNN November 18, 1998 via Citizen News.

“Starr says Clinton ‘chose deception’”

“In a marathon session, Independent Counsel Ken Starr laid out his case against President Bill Clinton on Thursday, then clashed with Clinton lawyer David Kendall over Starr’s allegations of presidential misconduct in the Monica Lewinsky affair.

Starr told the House Judiciary Committee the evidence suggests Clinton lied under oath, obstructed justice and attempted to thwart not just Paula Jones’ sexual harassment lawsuit but Starr’s grand jury probe as well.

“On at least six different occasions — from December 17, 1997, through August 17, 1998 — the president had to make a decision,” Starr told lawmakers. “He could choose truth or he could choose deception. On all six occasions, the president chose deception.”

Starr’s testimony came on the first day of historic impeachment hearings by the Judiciary Committee. After he finished a 58-page statement, Starr answered questions from committee lawyers David Schippers and Abbe Lowell, House members and Kendall.

Kendall ripped Starr’s investigation as fatally flawed.

“Nothing in this overkill of an investigation amounts to a justification for the impeachment of the president of the United States,” Kendall declared.

Clinton’s lawyer pressed Starr on leaks of secret grand jury investigation, saying there has never been a case with so many prosecutorial leaks.

“I totally disagree with that,” an angry Starr replied. “That’s an accusation…””

“Rep. Charles Canady (R-Florida) accused Democrats of trying to shift attention from Clinton’s conduct by focusing on Starr’s methods.

Canady said their attacks on Starr reminded him of the adage, “If you don’t have an argument, abuse the other side.””

“Starr alleged that Clinton systematically lied about his relationship with Lewinsky during legal proceedings in the Jones case and Starr’s grand jury probe.

He accused Clinton of “a pattern of obstruction that is fundamentally inconsistent with the president’s duty to faithfully execute the law.” | Full text of Starr’s statement

Starr alleged that Clinton “misused his authority and power” to impede civil and criminal cases against him.

‘Checks and balances’

Committee Chairman Henry Hyde said the inquiry was part of “the series of checks and balances that exemplify the genius of our founding fathers.”

“Today the search for the truth continues,” Hyde said in his opening statement. Hyde praised Starr for offering a “clear, documented, compelling case against the president.”

“There are many voices telling us to halt this debate, that the people are weary of it all,” Hyde said. “There are other voices suggesting we have a duty to debate the many questions raised by the circumstances in which we find ourselves, questions of high consequence for constitutional government…. What is the significance of a false statement under oath? Is it essentially different from a garden variety lie? A mental reservation? A fib? An evasion? A little white lie? Hyperbole?””

From CNN

“SCHIPPERS: For the past year you have been trashed in the newspapers, on television and with snide, backward remarks to which you could not reply, isn’t that right, Judge Starr?

STARR: Well, I have chosen until now not to reply, but I think the code of silence, sometimes in terms of basic fairness gets to come to an end.

SCHIPPERS: And you have been pilloried and excoriated, charged with unbelievable things of which you are incapable of being guilty.

STARR: I cannot imagine me and my colleagues engaging in some of the suggested activities that have been described here, seriously. We simply cannot in conscience, live with one another as professionals — and I laid out in my opening statement the backgrounds of my colleagues, and I have been privileged to serve with two John Marshall award winners, and that’s special at the Justice Department. That means there’s no better trial lawyer in the Department of Justice recognized in a particular year and I have been privileged to serve with two of them — with public corruption chiefs. These are career civil servants and it’s not right and not fair to attack and calumny career civil servants. But for my part, I have learned that it goes with the independent counsel territory.

SCHIPPERS: And the independent counsel job, you didn’t seek that, did you?

STARR: Absolutely not.

SCHIPPERS: You were asked to take it, and you tried to leave and your staff begged you to stay a you did stay, is that right?

STARR: All of that is true. I never sought this job. I am reminded about the old song about taking a job…

(LAUGHTER)

STARR: … and what you then do with it. It would be indecorous of me to say it. I was asked to — by the special division to take on this responsibility — the three-judge panel, saw fit to ask me to serve. I had been asked by Phil Hyman (ph) who is department attorney general of the United States in January 1994, whether I would be willing to be considered appointed as the Whitewater counsel under Ms. Reno — to be appointed by Janet Reno. Happily for me, she wisely chose Bob Fiske. Unhappily for me, the special division chose me.

SCHIPPERS: You have been given a duty that you did not seek, and you have performed that duty to the best of your ability, is that correct, sir?

STARR: I have certainly tried, and I did not — to do it to the best of my ability, and I am proud of what we have been able to accomplish. As I indicated earlier, the records of convictions obtained, but also, the decisions not to seek an indictment. The decision to issue thorough reports. All of that is part of what we have co-labored together with Mr. Kendall pointing to the number of persons involved in the investigation.

I am proud of those persons. They are my colleagues and they have become my friends. And they’ve worked very long and very hard under very difficult circumstances and recognizing — and we’re big, big boys — and I mean that in a gender neutral way.

So, when we are accused in Arkansas of a political witch hunt, we took it and we did our arguing in court, and we proved to the satisfaction of a fair minded jury with a very distinguished judge that the sitting governor and the president of the first lady’s business partners were guilty of serious felonies. And we had been listening month after month to it’s a political witch hunt, and that was unfair, but we learned that goes with this territory.

SCHIPPERS: Judge for all that, doing your duty, you have been pilloried and attacked from all sides is that right?

STARR: I would hope not all sides but I guess that’s…

SCHIPPERS: Sometimes it seems like all sides.

(LAUGHTER)

SCHIPPERS: How long have you been an attorney, Judge Starr?

STARR: Twenty-five years.

SCHIPPERS: Well, I have been an attorney for a almost 40 years. I want to say I am proud to be in the same room with you and your staff.

STARR: Thank you, Mr. Schippers.

HYDE: Thank you. Thank you.”
