Quotes

Andrew Cooper: Whether it was true whether it was false, they would use anything they could get to discredit him and undermine him. They really wanted to undermine his Presidency. He was sort of obsessed with the sex angle. The sex angle really got Everett excited.

Shock revelation backed up by pure truth! Chilling.
5 October 2004 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

This documentary revealed in a narrative style, how shockingly powerful the campaign to destroy Bill Clinton was.

The documentary ran like a thesis paper. Each statement was backed up by several facts, with at least one reputable political figure backing it up. There were also several confessions from well know republicans involved as well.

The narrative style backed up by Morgan Freeman's dark voice provided yet another bonus.

It truly provides an insight you've never seen. It changed my views on Clinton and how far certain political partys will go to get their way.
