The Clintons have driven a lot of folks to distraction over the years. Connoisseurs of the 1990’s political wars will recall some of the more prominent members of Hillary’s vast-right-wing conspiracy: Richard Mellon Scaife, R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr., Larry Nichols, Joseph Farah, Christopher Ruddy, Ed Klein, David Brock (before his road-to-Damascus conversion), and, of course, Representative Dan Burton, whose quest to prove that the First Couple murdered Vince Foster led the lawmaker to recreate the shooting in his backyard using a watermelon as a stand-in for Foster’s head.
But maybe no one has devoted more of his life to toppling the House of Clinton than David Bossie, veteran activist and, fittingly enough, the brand new deputy campaign manager for Donald J. Trump. Going back to the 1992 presidential race, when he became known for his controversial dirt-digging on then-Governor Clinton, Bossie has emerged as Bill and Hillary’s Inspector Javert: dogged, ruthless, and 100 percent convinced of the righteousness of his crusade. He allows nothing and no one to divert him from the cause. (We are, after all, talking about the guy whose documentary Hillary: The Movie led to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling that finished wrecking America’s campaign-finance system.)
