Older members, Democrats and Republicans, teach me something about the Clinton era

Did Bill Clinton and his administration give nuclear secrets to the Chinese and were there large donations made to the Clinton's from Chinese donors?

I've heard the rumor over the years and it sounds wildly insane. Obviously the Republicans would have pursued charges if it were true unless they were corruptible as well or the Clinton's were just too smart for them.

So what's true?

1. I'm not aware of any proof of the former

but I believe there's ample proof of the donations. I'm just going off memory here.

2. Missile technology mostly.

Several Chicoms fled the country and Senator John Glenn ran interference in the Senate with the help of the MSM that did all they could to divert attention.

Senator Thompson was feckless as committee chair.

7. Glenn's "payoff" for running smoke for all of that came in 1998,

when they sent him back into space at age 77 for no apparent reason.

3. Nothing proven about nuclear secrets or missile technology

There is a lot of proof to support the donations story.

8. It was a wonderful time of job growth and a budget surplus

As to your questions: No and no.

Is there anything else you need help with?

10. With all the talk about trump and the russians

I began to wonder if Democrats were worried about collusion since they dealt with similar things during Clinton's term.

There was something about a Clinton staffer or cabinet member putting archived information down his pants. What was up with that?

Thanks for all the help guys. I was in junior high when all this was going on. SNL will never be as great as it was back then, that's for sure.

12. There was never any "there" there.

If a staffer or cabinet member did something wrong, that's on that person. I don't blame you for what Trump does, you know?

If you discovered some evidence of collusion with a foreign power and a quid pro quo, please present it. I lived through that era, now long ago, and never found any evidence of malfeasance on the part of President Clinton with respect to the Chinese and nuke stuff.

13. I was so great Clinton couldn't screw it up if you want honesty.

The Internet coming into main stream , home PC's the new "appliance level purchase" and don't forget the Y2k bug that forced business to spend on IT like never before. The tech bubble burst when Clinton sued Microsoft too.

14. I don't remember how that shook out

The Clintons are liars and crooks, though, so it wouldn't surprise me to find it was true. Past a certain point, the specifics don't matter to me. I throw 'em in the "crook" or "liar" bins and largely ignore them.
