Citizens United President David Bossie freely admits it: He was part of the "vast right-wing conspiracy."

Amid the 7,500 documents released Friday by the Clinton Presidential Library is a 28-page report titled "Communication Stream of Conspiracy Commerce." The document was written in 1995 and describes what then-first lady Hillary Clinton would call in a 1998 "Today" show interview the "vast right-wing conspiracy" against her husband.

The document accuses political consultant Floyd Brown and Bossie of digging up dirt on Bill Clinton and feeding it to the mainstream media.

"You got me," Bossie said Monday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File." He said, however, that it was the mainstream media who approached him and Brown about stories and not the other way around.

"I spent months working down in Arkansas uncovering these issues about the Rose law firm, the Whitewater land deal and all the rest," he said.

Bossie later became the chief investigator for the House Oversight Committee during the Clinton presidency.

"Her fundamental facts are incorrect," Bossie told host Megyn Kelly. "I believe she used this as a propaganda technique to try to gain sympathy."

Bossie said members of the press were the "true vast right-wing conspiracy." Investigative reporters from the network news and major newspapers wanted to know what they were finding.

The press was doing its job, he said, adding that he wished they would do the same with the administration of President Barack Obama.

The memos were released as part of a "document dump" on the Friday before Easter weekend, Bossie said. Such releases are often used by politicians to put out information they hope will be covered over the weekend or holiday when they hope fewer people will be paying attention.

"The Clintons haven't changed," Bossie said.
