American Crime Story Season 3 Plot: What’s gonna happen in it?
American Crime Story brings the high profile cases of contemporary America to the audience in the form of a mini-series. After featuring the trial of O.J. Simpson and the assassination of Versace Gianni, it is official; season three will highlight the impeachment proceedings against Bill Clinton. The plot will be based on a book written by Jeffrey Toobin, A Vast Conspiracy. Murphy Stated that nobody should tell the story of Monica Lewinsky instead of her; it will be gross if someone did! This hints toward season three, dealing with the untold story and how it affected women. Impeachment: American Crime Story will also highlight the overlooked dimensions, and it will focus more on women who were the victims of the scandal rather than Clinton’s presidency.
