Quotes

Robert Bennett: And I remember George Stephanopoulos coming into the Oval Office not once but two or three times and saying "Mr. President you have GOT to get into this meeting." It was surreal. I was taking the time of the President of the United States during an international emergency, talking with him about the Paula Jones case.

Makes Powerful Case For Abuse Of Power
27 June 2004 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

Gene Lyons and Joe Conason's book THE HUNTING OF THE PRESIDENT had no photos of the major players, a real shame when you have a huge cast and no way to keep the players straight . Seeing the film brings the faces of some of the story's less well-known personalities--the Dogpatch types from Arkansas (such as the bait shop owner and the Arkansas troopers), the White Supremacists, and the members of the Arkansas Project--into the light of day...Susan McDougal emerges from this film a bona fide hero, as she should. I thought I knew this area of the story well, but there are chilling details about her treatment by the Independent Counsel that are shockingly disturbing...The film doesn't try to excuse Clinton's behavior vis-a-vis Monica Lewinski; the real outrage, it suggests, is the abuse of power within the Office of the Independent Counsel. For that it makes a very strong case. A powerful film indeed.
