The only people who wanted an answer to that question were Republicans. The rest of us were content to let marital problems of the president and the first lady be dealt with by them.
Clinton lost his law license for lying in the Paula Jones Matter, which was a sexual harassment lawsuit. I guess you could say it was related to his sex life. But really?

Clinton Fined $90,686 for Lying in Paula Jones Case

The federal judge who found President Clinton in contempt of court last April levied a penalty of $90,686 against him Thursday, making him the first chief executive ever assessed such a payment.

Repeating her condemnation of Clinton for lying under oath in the Paula Corbin Jones sexual harassment lawsuit, U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright said that she was imposing the sanction to cover some of Jones’ legal expenses and “to deter others who might consider emulating the president’s misconduct.”

Fame is irrelevant. He was not a bigger liar than Nixon or Trump. In the long run, the fame will be Trump's just for sheer volume alone.
He has the biggest lie in presidential history.

The LIE is what's famous, not the person.

Clinton is number one!

Bill Clinton mastered it way before Palin showed up...

Link please...Monica - A person choice - which both parties were adults and agreed on the ... personal choice. I don't know of one man who would not first start out by ... not quite telling the truth.

We are not talking about a persons own life.

We are talking about false statements - intentionally stated - to take advantage of the voting citizen


(How come republican always get hysterical from things that don't matter -
Identified by them when they get their panties in an a permanent wad)

It was not the "marital problems" as much as it was the looking right into the camera and lying about it...

"I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky"

As is often the case the cover up was worse than the crime.

Clinton didn't have to lie about it.

He coulda said many other things, or nothing at all about it.

But, the Clintons first inclination is usually to lie.

So he told the most famous presidential lie in the history of presidential lies.

You're correct on that one.

Bill Clinton has the most famous presidential lie in the history of presidential lies.

And, it's not even close!

"I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky"

And, how much money have the Clintons skimmed from their "charity" foundation?

Seems like they got lots of contributions back when everyone knew that Hillary was gonna be the prez.

Seems like the contributions dropped off quite a bit when she lost.

Funny how that happened.

No more influence for sale, means lots less money coming in...
