After exhausting secret negotiations, President Clinton announces the first major worldwide nuclear disarmament deal signed by the U.S., Russia, China, North Korea, Israel, India, Pakistan, England, and France in which all countries have pledged to drastically reduce their stocks of nuclear weapons over a five-year period with the ultimate aim after ten years of eliminating nuclear weapons entirely. Regular inspections will be held by the UN and teams from all nine signatories. Leaders of these nations will be coming to the White House for a mammoth State Dinner. The Dow Jones Hits 20,000.
Senate Majority Leader Boehner denounces Clinton as Neville Chamberlain negotiating with "a whole buncha Hitler types." Senator Marco Rubio denounces her as another Castro. Jeb Bush denounces her as another Jimmy Carter. Pat Robertson denounces her as the Antichrist. Senator Tom Cotton says that in Iran, women who betrayed their country like her would be stoned. The House has meanwhile been mounting investigations into Benghazi, Clinton's State Department emails, the Vince Foster suicide, Monica Lewinsky, Bill Clinton's travel allowance as a roving goodwill ambassador (Travelgate II), and President Clinton's selection of a new China pattern for the White House (Dishgate).
