And clearly there's not the same sort of Pall of suspicion and disdain that surrounded Paula Jones and Gennifer Flowers.
When they came out against Bill Clinton surrounding these accusers no we learn from Jones and flowers is you can be.
A non credible person with a very messy background.
And still be telling truths I think this probably end up being -- he said she said or he said she said she said she said.

You know the AP.
Took a look at Karen Kraushaar them most recent of the women to -- Herman -- Found that there were well she's sort of a a serial lawsuit filer.

Governor Clinton invited her to his whole hotel room and propositioned her.
Grossly which he did which he did you didn't want to know anything else about Paula Jones he thought it was outrageous when James Carville said she is trailer rational.
I think it is important to look into the background and it -- -- -- support -- for any information comes out.
Most of the attack was was actually -- at that's not -- was lobbed at these individual women that is what happened is not laugh -- -- one.
I think the fact that there's a doubles in a double standard.
Here should not negate the fact that we have genuine charges here we had to settlements this is not just a question of allegations.
We had actual money settlements.
That this is a genuine news story and people who say that it's an anti Republican thing are not being fair to the press we have every right to go after this story.
And -- haven't -- -- and nine million dollars off of not sexual harassment sexual assault when you.
-- -- without their alleged that sexual assault alleged and that's allowed in an audio out of your last sentence -- after that I have never -- contrary you know with confidence that he sexually assaulted -- I believe my young woman tells you people something that happened many many years ago clearly years ago you really you can't -- -- -- -- detail into the evening out at some some sort of sent a fax and when the hotels get involved.
This doesn't upgrade of the of -- hotel room here all right Jim.
What what what were -- an illustration.
Sort of the media's power and we all know how powerful the media are and we also should see the reactions of for example Maria Bartiromo of CNBC asked these questions to -- the audience booed -- -- can't give themselves they are a major force sort of independent of the political system.
The power to wrecked somebody's life for these prices.
