Former Clinton Victim Kathleen Willey: “Hillary is the War on Women”
Hillary Clinton remains intent on seizing the Oval Office in 2016. And so long as she (and her husband) continue to grasp for power, all of the Clinton scandals from the 1990s will continue to be relevant – from Chinagate to Travelgate, and using the FBI and the IRS to attack, silence and smear political opponents.
This became abundantly clear with the recent release of the “Hillary Papers,” an archive of records of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, Diane Blair, who passed away in 2000. Blair’s husband Jim, also deceased, had helped Hillary with the cattle futures deal that turned her $1,000 “investment” into a nearly $100,000 payday 10 months later. While these records touched on a wide range of issues, from Hillarycare to national security, press reports focused heavily on the so-called “sex files” – Bill Clinton’s sexual abuse of female victims and Hillary’s concerted campaign to threaten, intimidate, and destroy them.
For those of you who have been supporters of Judicial Watch since the days of Bill and Hillary, you know that Judicial Watch was active in seeking the truth about Bill Clinton’s abuse of women, and in seeking justice on behalf of his victims.
Judicial Watch defended Gennifer Flowers, who was subjected to a smear campaign masterminded by Hillary Clinton, and carried out by Clinton hacks George Stephanopoulos and James Carville, after she revealed a long-time affair with then Governor Clinton in 1991. Ms. Flowers quickly became a casualty of the Clintons’ rise to power.
JW represented Dolly Kyle Browning, who wrote a semi-autobiographical novel about her long-time affair with Bill Clinton. The former president fought tooth and nail to prevent the book from being published as he saw it as a threat to his political ambitions.
JW came to the aid of Juanita Broaddrick, who was raped by Bill Clinton in 1978, when Clinton served as Arkansas Attorney General (the state’s top law enforcement official). Ms. Broaddrick was then subjected to a retaliatory IRS audit many years later when she publicly disclosed the incident.
And then there’s Kathleen Willey, who was groped and sexually assaulted by President Clinton in the Oval Office on November 29, 1993, the same day Ms. Willey’s husband committed suicide. JW earned a key victory for accountability when U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ruled that President Clinton violated the Privacy Act in orchestrating the release of letters from Willey to the President in an effort to discredit her. We also uncovered, and the Court noted, that Hillary Clinton approved of this smear campaign.
As I say, with the Clintons, what’s old is new. Incidents of Clinton corruption, even decades old, cannot yet be dismissed as an unpleasant chapter in American history. Instead, they serve as warning signs of corruption yet to come as long as they remain in power. (And with Hillary plotting for an eight year run in the Oval Office, they show no signs of slipping into retirement.)
And that is the message Ms. Willey delivered recently in an interview with Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly. The following are a couple of key excerpts:
Hillary Clinton is the war on women. And I think that she needs to be exposed for all of the terror campaigns that she’s raised against women who were in the wrong place at the wrong time with her husband. And it’s been going on since before they were married. That’s how she handles it…The easiest way for her to handle scandals is to ruin the women who just happen…to cross paths with him. And that’s horrible, and they do a good job at it.
…if she’s going to run on women’s issues, like she says she is, and she’s going to accuse Republicans of this war on women, I think she needs to be exposed for the war that she’s waged against people — waged against people like me…she has choreographed every single investigation and every terror campaign against every single woman practically who she thinks might be a problem. That’s how she handled it. How can you be a champion of women’s rights and turn around and do what she’s done to women like me? It just doesn’t make sense.
This is certainly consistent with Judicial Watch’s investigations. Hillary certainly had her share of accomplices inside the Clinton inner circle, Carville and Stephanopoulos among them, but she was their puppet master.
Time has a way of softening the public perception of politicians, even those that have committed reprehensible actions while in power. This is why approval ratings rise for many presidents after they leave office.
You can bet that Kathleen Willey and women on the wrong side of the Clintons will be subject to additional attacks as Hillary preps the battlefield for a presidential run. Let me tell you this: I support Kathleen Willey. I support Juanita. I support Gennifer. And I support Paula. And I encourage you and other Americans to support these women from the coming Clinton assault.
In the meantime, Judicial Watch is on the case. One of our investigators was just down in Little Rock looking at Hillarycare documents and we have multiple lawsuits on Benghazi and personal corruption issues for the Clintons from Hillary’s time at State.
Clinton corruption isn’t in the past, it continues.
