No, if Trump lied it's not the same as Bill Clinton lied about Monica Lewinski

The left is beginning to form the idea that IF Trump lied about Stormy Daniels - and that's a big if' it's somehow the same as Clinton's crime of lying about Monica Lewinski. The primary charge against Clinton was detailed in the articles of impeachment.

Article I charged that Clinton lied to the grand jury concerning:

the nature and details of his relationship with Lewinsky
prior false statements he made in the Jones deposition
prior false statements he allowed his lawyer to make characterizing Lewinsky's affidavit
his attempts to tamper with witnesses

Article III charged Clinton with attempting to obstruct justice in the Jones case by:

encouraging Lewinsky to file a false affidavit
encouraging Lewinsky to give false testimony if and when she was called to testify
concealing gifts he had given to Lewinsky that had been subpoenaed
attempting to secure a job for Lewinsky to influence her testimony
permitting his lawyer to make false statements characterizing Lewinsky's affidavit
attempting to tamper with the possible testimony of his secretary Betty Curie
making false and misleading statements to potential grand jury witnesses

None of these even come close to anything that Trump has done up to this point. Trump has not lied before a grand jury, been proven as had committed a high crime or misdemeanor or any other such crime. The left has been trying to payback the right for impeaching Clinton for the last 20 years and has never even come close, and it won't happen either.
