  •  This is just a desperate attempt (4+ / 0-)

    to keep the dogs of scandal baying, in an attempt to re-create the atmosphere of the second Clinton administration where a host of manufactured scandals were used to try and distract and dis-empower the White House.

    The fact that they're using this instead of anything remotely real shows how bare their scandal cupboard really is.

    Of course the secondary benefit for them is that it's yet another tool to be used to keep the perpetual-outrage machine running with their base.

    It's to be expected.  But the attempt to lay so many scandals on Bill Clinton backfired, and so will this if they keep pressing it.
