    Clintons Sued in L.A. Over Campaign Donations

    Hollywood producer Peter Paul has sued former President Bill Clinton, and U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, contending the former first couple got him in trouble with federal authorities by failing to report his $2 million in-kind contributions to her Senate campaign.
    Judicial Watch, which has sued the Clintons several times over alleged campaign finance violations, filed the lawsuit on Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of Paul, who is in a federal detention facility in New York after being extradited from Brazil last month to face federal fraud charges.

    In December 2001, a Los Angeles judge dismissed a similar lawsuit in which Paul sought damages and the return of stocks and cash he had pledged to Hillary Clinton's campaign.

    Representatives for the former president and the senator could not immediately be reached for comment.

    A federal grand jury indicted Paul in 2001 on charges he manipulated the price of stock in his company, Stan Lee Media Inc., before dumping it and bilking investors out of $25 million. If he is convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison and millions of dollars in fines.

    Paul, 52, believes he owes his federal troubles at least in part to the Clintons, who pressured him to commit $2 million in cash and Stan Lee stock to produce a lavish Hollywood fund-raiser in 2000, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said.

    According to his lawsuit, Paul gained access to President Clinton by promising to contribute to his wife's Senate campaign.

    At one point, the lawsuit said, he promised Bill Clinton a compensation package worth $16 million to sit on Stan Lee's board and act as a worldwide emissary for the company

    I seriously doubt it.
  4. Yeah, because a president truly has the power to affect the global economy.
  5. And the families of 300 dead American soldiers.

    Hey dgabriel, why don't you ask all of these people if they are glad that Bill Clinton is out of power? Oh, my bad, you can't because they were all mysteriously killed. Hmm, how convenient.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. I figured you had nothing to say.

    Hey coward, are you going to defend your beloved liberal President?
  9. Clinton did nothing but telegraph to the world for 8 straight years his new American policy of "settlementized capitulation". The U.S. administration was always one rung below the worst trial lawyer, as the administration cut cowardly deals at all levels with the worst in the world. For the Clinton years, we never did take the evil in this world to court with belief in our case. No, we always settled out and looked the other way as the wicked ran free (Bin Laden, N. Korea, Saddam, etc). The Clinton years contempt for American world leadership, screamed to the world of the new stained American policy of "weakness through fear". The free world was taught over those 8 years to lose faith in the leadership of the American existence. The evil of the world was taught to attempt challenge to our might. As a result, we now have many dead Americans from the byproducts of this period of appeasement.
