Given the way the liberal networks are salivating over James Comey's new book, you'd think it would be huge news whenever an ex-FBI Director excoriated a President as an immoral "disgrace." But in October 2005, the networks barely noticed Louis Freeh's book scolding Bill Clinton's conduct.
Freeh did get 13 minutes from CBS's 60 Minutes, one of the few programs to give his story much attention. Correspondent Mike Wallace read from Freeh's book: "Whatever moral compass the President was consulting was leading him in the wrong direction. His closets were full of skeletons just waiting to burst out."
Wallace narrated: "Freeh thought Clinton disgraced the presidency. Clinton felt Freeh was out to get him and that Freeh was an insufferable Boy Scout."
He even asked Freeh: "I'm told that relations got so bad between you and Bill Clinton that his former chief of staff, John Podesta, says that Mr. Clinton always referred to you as that 'F-ing Freeh,' as though your first name was F-ing."
