In the real world, Clinton, with help from the entire Democratic Party, kept earnestly lying to anyone who would listen until physical evidence compelled him to admit what he had done. His subsequent “contrition” was a matter of political survival. The notion that Trump engaged in “bribery” is debatable. The notion that Clinton perjured himself is not.
