From the Clinton Grand Jury Testimony transcript:
I have redacted discussion about taking a break.
I am reading further, and started to copy a long exchange, but realised that if I copied every section where Clinton discussed specifics re: ML it would make a multipage posting, which would make the moderators unhappy (right- like any of us could be unhappier right now). Here’s the link:
So far, it soumds like Clinton was being straightforward about what happened while trying to avoid the level of detail that would get Ken Starr’s undies all sticky. If you read a bit further, it puts the “definition of is is” soundbite in clear context.
As I said in a much earlier thread, the depo in the Paula Jones case, whatever we think of it on its own merits, cannot be considered perjury because it did not materially affect the outcome of the case. The judge threw out the case because Paula Jones did not show any damage stemming from the “incident.” The judge did not question whether the “incident” happened, which is the area that “pattern of behaviour testimony” is material.
For that matter, in her initial complaint, Paula Jones described events stemming from the “incident” which did not occur, and which she later withdrew.
I’ll finish reading it- you all read it (or review it- I don’t want to assume that you have not read or watched it), and then let’s discuss. JDM
