1990s Blatant Lies, Scandals & Coverups of 1990s
Compiled by fredthebear

Site under construction by Fredthebear. The 1980's had to be separated from the 1990's. There was a BIG difference in the two decades.

The man cheated, lied, raped, had lackeys murdered, and stole his way into, though, and out of office. He was impeached, but not convicted of his crimes of impeachment, even though many members of his own party admitted he had lied many times. A federal court of law found him guilty of lying, but gave him a slap on the wrist. (He was disbarred and lost the right to practice law, but he wasn't going to practice law again anyway with that whopping government pension to live off of.) Our nation has been bitterly divided ever since.

Then he tried to get his loyal business partner elected to office, because it's the best way to commit crimes -- under the cover of his dishonest political party and the ignorant, lying national media. Under the popular party, our Department of Justice has been a complete fraud. Why? There's no accountability. The media is supposed to be a government watchdog. Not anymore, at least not upon the popular party.

Remember when he looked into the cameras, wagged his finger and boldly said "I never told anyone to lie, not one time!" That proved to be a lie too. If his lips are moving, he's LYING. Why bother listening to anything such a person says?
