FLASHBACK: Media Dismissed GOP Investigations as Partisan Witch Hunts
March 11th, 2019 10:16 AM

Media Hated Investigations Into Clinton’s Obstruction of Justice
June 8th, 2017 11:24 AM
In today’s political climate, an observer would be roundly mocked if they suggested President Trump is the victim of a “spiteful” “witch hunt,” or even a “coup d’etat.” But during the Clinton impeachment drama in 1998 and 1999, liberal journalists trotted out all of those claims as a way to deflect and defend a Democratic President who was impeached…
