O, Hillary!

FoxNews is reporting:

A federal appeals panel on Tuesday revived Gennifer Flowers' defamation suit accusing Hillary Rodham Clinton of masterminding a campaign to discredit her claim of an affair with Bill Clinton. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 3-0 that Flowers could try to prove the former first lady, now a senator from New York, conspired against her with two presidential aides, George Stephanopoulos and James Carville. Still, the court said Flowers faces an "uphill battle" and must convince a Nevada judge there is evidence of a conspiracy before the case could proceed to a jury.... Judge Alex Kozinski wrote [the] opinion.

An "uphill battle?" After what came out during the impeachment, how likely is it that any sensible judge or jury could not find that Hillary Clinton, George Stephanopoulos and James Carville (Mr. "Drag a $100 bill through a trailer park" himself) were conspirators?

Note to Hillary: Do not wear Pink Suit to your deposition, and try to avoid talking about "vast right wing conspiracy" against you and your husband.

Let's see - the depositions and therefore Hillary's (at least) likely perjury should come in a month or two. Evidence fully establishing the perjury will likely take, say, another year or so to collect, depending on how well David Kendall stalls. Then there's the perjury referal to the US Attorney in New York, and, say, a year for the US Attorney to investigate, write all those memos whose release Senator Clinton will oppose, the final decision not to prosecute, and a referal to the Senate Ethics Committee.

The Ethics Committee should issue its reprimand and/or condemnation for Senator Clinton's perjury sometime in the year before her re-election date - a little like Senator Torricelli.

Yes, yes. That should all work out nicely. Hardly matters if Ms. Flowers prevails - but that would help, too.

UPDATE: Fritz has more.
