"Frank Wolf of Virginia and Lamar Smith of Texas."

They should investigate Clinton and how he accepted $10M in illegal campaign contributions from the Chinese (got off charges with a slap on his wrist) and gave the Chinese rocket guidance technology from Loral.

And we, as a country, were OK with that for some reason. When I bring this up with people today they usually say "We needed to get that behind us."

I'll never understand that answer.
