Each passing day with the so-far empty but still damaging Hillary email scandal brings back memories of Special Persecutor Ken Starr’s panty posse and other efforts to chase down Roadrunner Clinton.
Then, Wednesday, came a polite inquiry from a documentary filmmaker seeking an interview with me and Ernie Dumas on a film about the Clinton family. An email from the producer’s assistant said:
This documentary is a balanced look at the Clintons, with a focus on the working relationship between Bill and Hillary, America’s power couple. We are looking for your insights into each partner’s strengths and weaknesses and how they functioned as a team in the White House and on the campaign trail.
I asked a few questions. Was the film intended for general release? What could I be told about the makers?
Oh, the producer will be Doug Sain, a well-known fellow, I was told. Indeed. He was co-producer with — and got in a legal spat with — the infamous Dinesh D’Souza over their critical film on Barack Obama: “2016: Love Him Hate Him You Don’t Know Him.”
I also was told the documentary makers had rights for purposes of the film to the book Clinton Inc., a gossipy hit on the Clinton family by a Weekly Standard writer Daniel Halper. Warmly reviewed in conservative outlets judging by a quick Google look, it made a bit of a splash on account of an early leak of its contents.
I think the filmmakers can get where they’re going without a cameo from me.
We went down the documentary film path in 1992, too. Remember the Clinton Chronicles?
