When Hillary Clinton spoke of "a vast rightwing conspiracy" determined to bring down the president, many people dismissed the idea. Yet, if the first lady's accusation was exaggerated, the facts that have since emerged point toward a covert and often concerted effort by Bill Clinton's enemiesabetted by his own reckless behaviorwhich led inexorably to impeachment. Clinton's foes launched a cascade of wellfinanced attacks that undermined American democracy and nearly destroyed the Clinton presidency. In vivid prose, Joe Conason and Gene Lyons, two awardwinning veteran journalists, identify the antagonists, reveal their tactics, trace the millions of dollars that subsidized them, and examine how and why mainstream news organizations aided those who were determined to bring down Bill Clinton. The Hunting of the President may very well be the All the President's Men of this political regime.
