“History shows that Ms. Lewinsky was treated horribly by the White House: When her relationship with the president first blared across the headlines, the White House began a full-court press strategy to destroy her: White House operatives portrayed her as a deranged stalker to any reporter willing to listen,” said the former congressman.
Rogan has documented the case against Clinton, how it developed and how it was handled in Washington, in his “Catching Our Flag: Behind the Scenes of a Presidential Impeachment.”
It details what happened when the media force-fed America and the world a steady diet of Lewinsky’s blue dress, a wagging presidential finger and the parsing of phrases like “the meaning of ‘is.’”
