    You haven't cited any evidence or quoted any article that even vaguely suggests that Hillary engaged in a cover-up of Bill's assault of Broaddrick or attempted to dig up any dirt on her.

    Get over your irrational animosity toward Hillary.

    Perhaps I should've found it in some language other than English?

    Find it in English and quote it.

    You read it once.
    You ignored it.

    False. You haven't cited any evidence whatsoever that Hillary engaged in any cover-up of Bill's sexual assault of Broaddrick or attempted to dig up any dirt on her. That's the only reason that you are unable to simply quote where you have provided such evidence.

    You really need to get over your animus toward Hillary Clinton. It's irrational.

    Meta-false.
    What's irrational is your not reading what you asked for.

    Bill Clinton is history, whereas Trump, Moore, Franken, Conyers, etc. are current. We can't undo history but we can change the course of what's current, so I suggest we deal with that.

    There's been roughly 10 investigations on Benghazi with no "smoking gun" (unless one watches Fox), [Republican] Comey said Hillary had bad judgement on her e-mails but that it didn't warrant prosecution, and what "internet security"? That "animal" doesn't exist.

    Meanwhile the Trump-depravity train rolls on and on and...

    I understand that revisiting Bill Clinton is discomforting to his fans.
    But he isn't the issue....it's the left's changing treatment of his sexual predation.
    So this continual objection to addressing his behavioral problems (crimes too)
    is irrelevant.

    Really, folks....this should be seen as a positive development for lefties.
    While they previously largely ignored & dismissed his behavior, now
    they're beginning to face it squarely. This is the opposite of hypocrisy.

    Whataboutism, eh?

    Is it really so difficult to address the OP, instead of...
    "Hey, look over here!"

    Not when the Op does just that.

    You entirely misunderstand what's going on.
    I introduced the subject of changing attitudes (about Bill Clinton's
    sexual predation) on the left, particularly in the media. This is
    something they previously tried to ignore, especially so on NPR
    (which is now in hot water for ignoring it within their midst too.)
    It's what the thread is about.

    Some lefties seem entirely incapable of facing this media sea change
    from hypocrisy to openness. So instead, they deflect, derail & deny.
    You started it with post #2.
    You're still doing it.

    Perhaps some Clinton fans cannot see a change in the left's facing up to
    Bill Clinton's problematic past because they saw, & still see no problem, eh.

    I've never had an issue that Billy is not problematic, he almost got impeached for it, I expect no different for our current president who seems to have some sort of shield against sexual scandal. I certainly am not going to put the blame on Hillary who far as I know has not sexually harassed anyone, unless you know different, still wouldn't excuse the past behavior of our right now current president, the one named Trump.

    You're creating a straw man.....
    No one (that I know of) accuses Hillary of sexually harassing anyone.
    But now even some on the left are facing her involvement in enabling
    Bill by going after the victims. This signals a change in their views.
    If you disagree that she was involved in this, feel free to make your case.

    Impossible?
    That's insulting!
    I prefer to think of myself as "extremely annoyingly difficult".
    (Finally something which all can agree upon, eh?)

    The op brought up she who shall not be named. So I brought up Malania instead.

    If Melania were accused of trashing the reputations of hubby's victims, or otherwise trying
    to silence them, then she should be subject to criticism for this. Is this what you're claiming?
    And how does it relate to a change in how the left is re-evaluating the Clintons?
