Under Clinton, the repeal of Glass-Steagall Act was passed by a GOP majority in Congress. Yes, Clinton signed off on it.

They also pressured the Clinton administration so heavily in pursuit of their agenda, they shut down the government at one point. Not to mention constant investigations of Clinton which went nowhere.
