Why I Distrust the Clintons

I could make this very simple – BECAUSE THEY’RE LIARS! However, although that’s the intent of this post, I want to go into some detail.

Over the past few months, I’ve read three books about the Clintons. The first, David Schippers’ SELLOUT, The Inside Story of the Clinton Impeachment, was originally published right after Clinton’s impeachment. Schippers was the lead prosecutor in the impeachment investigation. The second book is former Secret Service Uniformed Division officer Gary J. Byrne’s CRISIS OF CHARACTER. Last night I finished Bill Clinton’s high school friend and later paramour Dolly Kyle’s book HILLARY, the Other Woman and I have Peter Schweizer’s CLINTON CASH beside my chair to read next. All of these books contain information revealing how both of the Clintons have consistently lied during their political career. That Bill Clinton is a liar is well illustrated by his having been impeached by the US House of Representatives for perjury (lying to a grand jury) along with other issues. That the Clintons are liars is well documented.

Gary Byrne was one of the Secret Service officer’s called to testify to the grand jury and after the Supreme Court ruled that there was no legal basis to prevent a government official from testifying and revealing “privileged information.” His main revelation is that Bill Clinton was alone in the Oval Office with Monica Lewinsky, a young White House intern, on several occasions and that it was common knowledge in the West Wing that he was sexually involved with her, and allegedly with the late Eleanor Mondale as well. He was also involved with an unnamed White House receptionist. Bryne reveals how that a Navy steward assigned to the Oval Office came to him with (expensive) towels containing not only semen, but lipstick (that Byrne believed was not Lewinsky’s, but the lipstick worn by the receptionist). The Filipino steward was afraid to send the towels to the laundry so Byrne smuggled them out of the White House and disposed of them.

When it comes Hillary and her lies and corruption, it is Dolly Kyle’s book that is most revealing. Ms. Kyle, whose last name is Browning, met Bill Clinton on a Hot Springs golf course when she was 11 and he was almost 13. Although Clinton was two years older, they ended up in high school together because Dolly skipped two grades and graduated at age 16. Although they didn’t have sex while they were in high school, Dolly and “Billy,” as she an others around Hot Springs knew him, often got together to talk. Dolly reveals that Billy was not raised in Hope, but that although he was born there, his mother moved to Hot Springs and left him with her parents until he was 5, at which time she got him – over her mother’s protest – and took him to Hot Springs, where Billy lived until he left for college in 1964. Dolly points out that Billy’s claim in the movie The Man From Hope that his grandfather protested the closing of the Little Rock High School in 1958 is false because he passed away a year before the school integration took place.

Dolly reveals that Billy Clinton was basically a coward, and it was his cowardice that led him to protest the Vietnam War and evade the draft. (Contrary to assertions, Donald Trump never evaded the draft – he had the standard student deferments while in college then was classified 1Y because of medical defects found in his draft physical. When the draft lottery was initiated, Trump drew a high number.) Even worse are the many allegations of sexual assault and even rape, including a young English woman named Eileen Wellstone who met Clinton at a bar near Oxford University where he was a student and was raped by him. Clinton says the sex was consensual. Dolly was writing back and forth with him while they were in college but she wasn’t aware of his sexual escapades. Dolly got pregnant while in college and was married at 18. She had three children before the marriage ended in divorce in 1974 when Dolly was 25. By this time, Bill Clinton had graduated from Yale Law School and moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas and was teaching at the University of Arkansas.

Kyle and Clinton corresponded with each other throughout his college years and would see him when he was in Little Rock, where she was living. He told her that he’d moved in with a female student named Hillary Rodham but indicated it was for purely financial reasons – he was at Yale on scholarship and had little money but Rodham’s father was paying for her education, including her residence. Billy told Dolly after he moved in with Hillary that he “thought his sex life was over but at least he had a roof over his head.” Dolly doesn’t say when her relationship with Clinton became sexual but she was definitely seeing him within a month after her divorce (and possibly before. Dolly says that she was raped at 16 and afterwards became rather loose.) She saw Clinton in February 1974 at a fundraiser in Little Rock – Clinton was running for Congress – and spent time with him in a hotel room. Later that year, Bill got a job for Hillary at the University of Arkansas and brought her over from Washington, where she had lost her job with the Watergate Commission. She had failed the bar and had no job prospects. They moved in together in a small house in Fayetteville. They lived together for over a year and were finally married by a justice of the peace in their house in October 1975. Clinton was elected as the Arkansas attorney general in 1976 – he had no opposition.

Clinton is known to have been sexually involved with several other women during his time at U of A, including Dolly Kyle, who dated him until she met someone and was married, then moved back to Texas to attend the Southern Methodist law school. At least one of his conquests was one of his students. He claims they were consensual but there’s reason to believe the women were pressured when they were named as witnesses in the Paula Corbin Jones case. Schippers learned that Clinton’s lawyers pressured witnesses to lie in their dispositions or sign documents calling for their subpoenas to be “quashed.” It was those actions that led to the witness tampering charges against Clinton.

Hillary Clinton, who often referred to the presidency as “we”, was heavily involved in the attempts to cover up Bill’s indiscretions. Dolly Kyle says that when the Gennifer Flowers story broke, Hillary came up with a plan to have her appear on 60 Minutes with them. She would acknowledge that she had been Bill’s girlfriend and lover in an attempt to turn the attention to her and away from Flowers. The Clintons had already gone after Kyle over a novel she was writing. Although Bill knew about the novel – and encouraged it – he (or Hillary) realized that it could be damaging to his political hopes. Kyle’s own brother and sister advised her that if she continued with the novel and didn’t deny her relationship with Clinton to reporters that “we” (meaning the Clinton campaign in which they were both involved) “will destroy you.” Hillary attacked all of the women who accused her husband of sexual assault, and made salacious charges against Monica Lewinsky once news of her affair with the president became public knowledge.

Kyle doesn’t state but insinuates that Hillary is either a lesbian or bisexual. Bill Clinton once told her that having a baby would help project the image that “we’re a normal married couple. We need to do something serious to take attention off The Warden’s (Clinton referred to Hillary as “The Warden) lifestyle. There is a curious irony in the Clinton’s story. Hillary’s well-known assistant, Huma Abedin, was a White House intern at the same time as Monica Lewinsky. They have been together ever since.

The Clintons are also blatant racists, even though Bill was once called “the first black president” and Hillary claims to be all about equality. While Bill was governor of Arkansas, he promoted policies that were overtly racial. He referred to blacks as “G-damned niggers”, sometimes by name and sometimes as a group. Hillary shows evidence of distaste for blacks. They are hypocrites.

That both of the Clintons are serial liars are well established, Bill by his impeachment by the US House for perjury and Hillary by her many statements – such as landing in Bosnia under sniper fire – that have been disproved by photographs and film. There is nothing honest about them.

The Despicable Clintons

I have just finished reading David Shippers’ account of his experiences as the Chief Investigative Counsel for the House Judiciary Committee prior to and during the impeachment of William Jefferson Clinton in 1999. The book, called SELLOUT, is available from Amazon.com at this link – SELLOUT Considering that the wife of only the second US president to be impeached has just been nominated for the same office, it is important that Americans understand why her husband was impeached and realize that her character is just as lacking as his, or maybe more although she has never been publically accused of rape.

David Schippers was a Chicago lawyer and a lifelong Democrat who was asked by Congressman Henry Hyde to head up an investigative unit whose mission would be to investigate the US Department of Justice. Schippers had previously led the Justice Department’s Organized Crime and Racketeering Unit and had the experience. Although Hyde was a Republican, he wanted a Democrat to lead the new unit. When Schippers took the job, no action had been taken toward impeachment, although word of the sexual harassment suit against the president by one Paula Jones, a young Arkansas state employee, and his relationship with a White House intern named Monica Lewinsky had hit the media. The first action taken by the new committee, which was made up of lawyers and law enforcement personnel, mostly from Chicago, that Schippers knew, was to look into White House interference with the Immigration and Naturalization Service in regard to rushing the citizenship process of an estimated 1 million immigrants so they would be eligible to vote in the 1996 election – presumably for Clinton. Both Clinton and Vice-President Al Gore were involved in the action, which was a flagrant abuse of power that resulted in the granting of citizenship to several hundred applicants with criminal records. (In order to expedite the process, the INS was forced to forego it’s normal vetting procedures.) They were also planning to investigate Janet Reno’s Justice Department. Before the unit could pursue action, they were handed the job of investigating the president’s actions in regard to the Paula Jones’ suit and other improper actions turned up by Independent Prosecutor Ken Starr. Specifically, they were to investigate the president’s actions in regard to his relationship with Monica Lewinsky and his possibly having committed perjury and other crimes and misdemeanors in his deposition in the Paula Jones case.

The Clinton impeachment was in 1999, two decades ago, and many of today’s voters are too young to have known what took place while others didn’t really understand it. Briefly, two things happened: The first was the Paula Jones case; the second was Monica Lewinsky.

Paula Jones filed her suit against the president for something that took place while he was governor of Arkansas and she was a state employee. Clinton saw the 25-year old woman and told one of his state trooper escorts to bring her to his room in the Excelsior Hotel. When Jones got there, Clinton pulled out his penis and told her to “kiss it.”  Jones Suit Against Clinton  Jones refused and fled the room. She didn’t say anything about what had happened until a story came out in a magazine about it. She was convinced to file suit, which she did on May 6, 1994. The case was initially dismissed but Jones appealed. Clinton’s lawyers claimed that a sitting president could not be sued and the case went to the Supreme Court, which ruled unanimously that presidents are not above the law and are subject to the same legal actions as any citizen. Things got really hot for Clinton when the judge in the case decreed that Jones’ attorneys were free to interview other women Clinton had been sexually involved with or had made advances toward to show a pattern of sexual harassment. That’s where Clinton’s depravity came to light.

That Clinton has a reputation for philandering was well-known. He also has a strong tendency to lie. In 1992 during his presidential campaign, a woman in Little Rock named Gennifer Flowers came forward with the revelation that she and Clinton had been engaged in a 12-year affair. As Clintons are prone to do, Bill lied and said it wasn’t true – but in 1998 he admitted under oath that he had been sexually involved with Flowers. Schippers’ team wasn’t interested in Flowers but they were interested in other women who had been subpoenaed in the case, including – particularly – Lewinsky. However, it wasn’t the Lewinsky case that revealed Clinton’s depravity and ruthlessness.

The Jones team subpoenaed a number of women who had some kind of history with Clinton. When the Clinton legal team learned the women had been subpoenaed, The White House stepped in and contacted the women and sent them affidavits to sigh denying any kind of wrong-doing on the part of the president. Two in particular refused, and they both had sordid stories to tell. Schippers and members of his team interviewed them both extensively. Kathleen Wiley, a Virginia woman, had been pursued by Clinton even though she rejected his unwanted advances. On one occasion at a campaign event, he had groped her. Schippers and members of his team met with her and her attorney several times and believed she was telling the truth. Wiley and her attorney said that the White House put pressure on her to sign the affidavit Clinton’s legal team had drawn up, pressure that went to the point of intimidation. After her pet cat disappeared, she received threats insinuating that the cat had been taken. After she gave her deposition, a small animal skull appeared on her doorstep. She was accosted by strange men who advised her to sign the affidavit. Schippers and his team decided to have Wiley testify against Clinton in the impeachment trial.

The case of Juanita Broaddrick was different because her allegations stemmed from when Clinton was attorney general in Arkansas. Broaddrick was listed as a “Jane Doe” in the Paula Jones case who had filled an affidavit denying that Clinton had assaulted (raped) her. Because the focus of the case against Clinton was on witness intimidation and perjury, To interview her, Schippers sent Diana Woznicki, one of his staff members who had formerly worked for him as a legal assistant before she joined the Chicago PD, where she had risen to the rank of sergeant. She had a background in rape counseling. Schippers had previously found two files with FBI interviews of women who had claimed Clinton had sexually assaulted them. Starr’s staff had said they shouldn’t have been sent to the Judiciary Committee and asked that they be returned. After Broaddrick’s name resurfaced, Schippers called Bob Bittman on Starr’s staff. Bittman said that the Independent Counsel had determined that the accusations stemmed from before Clinton became president however, she had been subpoenaed by the Jones’ attorneys but had filed a motion to quash, a memorandum of law and a false affidavit. Schippers told Bittman they were conducting an impeachment investigation and to send the Broaddrick file back. He found that it consisted of several extensive interviews of her and a number of corroborating witnesses. Schippers sent Woznicki to talk to Broaddrick. Broaddrick admitted that the affidavit was false, over the protest of her attorney. However, Broaddrick later phoned Woznicki and told her the whole story. Woznicki told Schippers that “Juanita fits the pattern of the classic rape victim.”

In 1978, Juanita Broaddrick was a young married woman in Fort Smith who worked in the nursing home industry. She met Clinton when he was campaigning for governor. (I was living in Arkansas at the time.) Clinton told her to call him and visit his headquarters in Little Rock the next time she was in Little Rock and pick up campaign materials. When she was in Little Rock for a conference, she decided to call him. He wasn’t there so she left a message. A short while later, he called her back and suggested that he come to her hotel and meet her in the coffee shop to talk about his campaign. A few minutes later, he called back and said there were reporters in the coffee shop and suggested he come to her room. She had a roommate but the other woman was out and Broaddrick hestitated, but then thought “this is the attorney general; if I can’t trust him who can I trust?”

Broaddrick was alone in her room when Clinton arrived. They engaged in small talk then she ushered him to the window where a coffee service had been set up. Suddenly, Clinton began kissing her, she said “not forcefully at first.” But then he threw her on the bed and kept kissing her. She struggled to get away but he got on top of her and bit down on her lower lip – the pain was excruciating. Every time she struggled, he bit down harder. He pushed down his pants and forced her legs apart, then entered her and raped her. At one point while he was mating with her – over her protest – he said “Don’t worry about getting pregnant. I’m sterile. I had mumps as a kid.” (So did I, but I have four children!) When he finally finished, she thought the ordeal was over. Clinton rose up slightly and she thought he was going to pull out of her, but he said “My God, I can do it again!” He continued the attack.

The woman was close to collapse by the time Clinton was finished with her. She was sobbing uncontrollably and afraid he might do something else. She was in a panic but Clinton didn’t appear to even be fazed by having just raped a woman. He “cooly rose from the bed and went in the bathroom.” Broaddrick lay paralyzed on the bed, afraid to move. He came out after a few minutes and started to leave, then turned and said “You better do something about that lip. Get some ice on it”. He then put on his sunglasses and left.  She was still sobbing when her friend returned. She noticed her swollen lip and the rumpled bed and asked what happened. Broaddrick put a bag of ice to her lip and the two women got in their car and drove back to Fort Smith. During the drive. Broaddrick decided not to tell anyone else what had happened and told her friend to forget about it. A few weeks later, her husband told her they had been invited to a Clinton fund-raiser. She didn’t want to go and feigned illness but her husband talked her into going. She avoided Clinton but Hillary sought her out. She came over to her and said “I’ve heard so much about you, you’ve done so much for us!” Then she put her face close to Juanita’s and said “We appreciate everything you do.” Broaddrick thought it was a strange comment because she hadn ‘t done anything for the Clintons. She told Woznicki that she wondered if Hillary knew what had happened and was thanking her for keeping her mouth shut.

During the impeachment, a Republican woman Congressman looked at the Broaddrick file. She told Schippers, “This is his MO.” She then told about her experience at a reception for pro-choice women Hillary had hosted. When her husband came in the room, Hillary froze, scowled and stalked out of the room. The president then walked around the room putting his arms around women. He singled out two young blonde women. She later found out that Clinton had called them both and invited them to meet with him – individually – in the Oval Office. The two women talked and were surprised to learn they had each received the same invitation. They declined.

(Article About NBC News Interview with Broaddrick)

The centerpiece of the Clinton impeachment was a young woman named Monica Lewinsky, a dark-haired Jewish beauty from California. Like Paula Jones, she is buxom. In 1995 she became an unpaid intern in the White House. Apparently, the young woman – she was 21 at the time – offered herself to Clinton and he accepted. They began an affair that lasted until December 1997 when Monica wrote Clinton a letter and ended it. They both claimed that they never had intercourse – which is doubtful – and confined their activities to oral sex. Clinton claimed he never had any kind of sex with her until it came to light that she had a blue dress with the president’s semen on it.

Now, Clinton supporters claim the impeachment was all about sex – it wasn’t  it was about perjury, witness tampering, obstruction of justice and abuse of power. Clinton and Lewinsky’s affair was consensual but it became a legal matter when they realized she was likely to be subpoenaed for the Jones case and came up with a plan to deny it. They already had a cover story for their affair; they would claim that Lewinsky’s visits to the Oval Office were to deliver “papers” or to see Betty Currie, the president’s secretary. They agreed to use the same story in her affidavit and later testimony to a grand jury. When news of the affair became public, Clinton’s actions were despicable – the White House planted news stories claiming that Lewinsky was “a stalker.” Democratic Congressman Charlie Rangle claimed “the child has serious emotional problems.” He went on to say “She’s fantasizing. And I haven’t heard that she played with a full deck in her other experiences.” Arkansas columnist Gene Lyons claimed “the President was, in a sense, the victim of someone like the woman who followed David Letterman around.” In short, the White House and Democrats launched a campaign of character assassination. They did the same thing with Paula Jones and Dolly Kyle Browning, a longtime Clinton friend and high school classmate with which he had a sexual affair until 1992 when he found out she was writing a novel based on their relationship. Clinton even went so far as launching air strikes against Iraq the night before the debate on the impeachment articles was to take place. The debate was postponed.

In the end, Schippers and his investigators determined that Clinton was guilty of no less than 15 separate felonious acts involving perjury, witness tampering, obstruction of justice and abuse of power. To make a long story short, the House impeached Clinton in a vote that included five Democrats voting in favor. However, the Senate refused to remove him from office for political reasons. Not a single Democratic Senator bothered to look at the evidence. They were determined to vote against removal of Clinton and the Republicans were afraid to due to public opinion. (Yes, the 1999 public is responsible for the Clintons!)

Even though William Jefferson Clinton was not removed from office (neither was Andrew Johnson, the only other president to be impeached), the investigation revealed that he is not only dishonorable, he is despicable, particularly for his treatment of women. Juanita Broaddrick is not the only woman to accuse him of sexual assault but she went further and accused him of rape. Had she brought charges against him at the time, he would have never been elected governor of Arkansas and Hillary Clinton would not be the current Democratic Party nominee for the office of President of the United States.

That Hillary is also despicable has been reinforced by her recent actions as Secretary of State as well as her actions during her husband’s impeachment, which she blamed on “a vast right-wing conspiracy” rather than his own actions. Even though her responsibility for the death of the ambassador to Libya and three others is debatable, there is no doubt she lied to the families about the reason for the attacks and that she and the White House lied to the American public, blaming the attacks on a You Tube video rather than on Libyan Islamic militants. She and her campaign lied to the American public about the (illegal) personal Internet server she had set up at her home in New York to use for government and personal communications so she wouldn’t be susceptible to NSA monitoring – although it turns out her server was susceptible to monitoring, not only by the NSA but by foreign intelligence services. She lied about the FBI counter-intelligence criminal investigation of her use of a personal server. She claimed it was a “review” rather than a criminal investigation. In fact, it has long been known that Hillary lies about everything, just as her husband does. She was branded a liar when she was still First Lady by conservative columnist William Safire, who said she was “a congenital liar.” Journalist Carl Bernstein said “Hillary and Truth rarely walk together.”

Hillary’s conduct regarding the army of women her husband has been involved with has been despicable. She often referred to them as “trailer trash” and called Monica Lewinsky a “bimbo.” When Clinton’s Arkansas opponents filed a suit claiming that he maintained a slush fund to maintain five women, Hillary got her buddies at the Rose Law Firm, where she worked, Vince Foster and Web Hubbell, to coerce the five women into signing affidavits claiming they had not slept with Clinton, a tactic White House lawyers used against the women subpoenaed for the Paula Jones case. One of those women was Gennifer Flowers, who signed the affidavit but who Bill Clinton later admitted had been his lover (he said “only once.”) (Hubbell was later convicted of wire fraud; he was indicted three times for various infractions of the law. Foster died of an apparent suicide – under mysterious circumstances – while White House Counsel. )

Hillary Clinton is now running for the office her slime-ball husband once occupied. If she wins the election, the disgraced politician who was impeached will be returning to the White House and the two most despicable people today will again have the power to rape, lie and steal.
