He lied to a Grand Jury, on 11 counts, He committed Purgury, something you just skipped over. His effectiveness as a President was most definatly affected by these events, as well as the other Kenneth Starr investigations. It was all caving in on him like Watergate caved in on Nixon. Bush or Cheney, have never been charged with a crime, or wrongdoing. Its a matter of opinion and perspective that he lied, not your say so, or the say so of liberals and Democrats. In the case of Clinton, he was guilty of a crime and he was disbarred becasue of it. He openly lied under oath in court, and he openly did not defend the Constitution by doing that. It was an act of the head of your Executive Branch of Government, The highest office in our land, defying the Judicial Branch with lying under Oath. A plea deal made, to avoid impeachment, and embarrassment of the country for his behavior. Bottom line is he could care less, he was never going to be an Attorney after leaving the Presidency.
Cool story. But in the meantime and in between time the two main reasons Bush or moreso Cheney weren't convicted regarding the Plame Affair is b/c
A] Cheney was decidely uncooperative with the invesitgation and
B] Eventually Libby took the fall ... and then got pardoned by the then President who said that anyone found 2 have been responsible 4 leaking the identity of a C.I.A Operative [which i consider 2 be SUPREMELY COWARDLY and UNPATRIOTIC] would prosecuted 2 the fullest extent of the law. Funny how that worked out huh?
