To Righties: Did any of you argue that Bill Clinton was above our laws?

How about this-

When Special Prosecutor Ken Starr began to investigate Presiden Bill Clinton, it was for the Clinton's Whitewater deals.

Did you or the right argue that Ken Starr was going beyond his focus when he started to investigate the Blue Dress?

Why was it ok for Ken Starr to 'seek the truth where ever it led him' but Mueller is stuck to a narrow band of wrongdoing?
First of all ....

Muller is not stuck anywhere.

He has unprecedented authority to investigate whatever h wants.

That is not how it is done.

When the investigation takes a turn outside the already approved scope the special prosecutor has to go back to the Director and get approval to investigate whatever.

Ken Star did this.

Mueller is NOT under this condition.

Rosenstein gave Mueller unfettered power to investigate anything and everything.

And, for the record Ken Star did not investigate the "blue dress" he investigated Ol' Slick for lying.

Which, given he was a Clinton, surely wasn't hard to do.

However, by that point even I was disgusted with the whole special prosecutor process.

Don't remember that argument???
Who are "You guys?"
Democrats. From Gennifer Flowers to Monica Lewinsky, they argued that Clinton's personal life did not matter and that he was still a good president. The media even accommodated this mindset by separating the approval polling into personal approval and job approval. Democrats won that argument. So now Republicans have a shit heel as president because people stopped caring about the character of the president.

I never cared about the sexual peccadilloes of any pol from either party as long as they were consensual, did not abuse public money and were between consenting adults.

I'll bet you guys regret spending all that time in the 90's arguing that you don't have to be a good person to be a good president.
Yes...but at least ol Bill was a President that got the job done. That is different in being a total fuck up in one's personal life..And a total fuck up as president..AND a legal cluster fuck.

Clinton had his faux pas...but he also did his time.

Clinton's personal life was being investigated before any wrongdoing was suspected. He was not investigated for "lying" until after the investigations had started, which is when it happened.

He was accused of sexual harassment. That's how the inquiry into his sexual history began. The 1994 VAWA made mens' sexual history fair game in harassment complaints.

Comey caught in another lie, as transcripts show he did tell Congress he believed Flynn did not lie.
