WASHINGTON, D.C. — Bill Clinton may soon be answering to new allegations of sexual assault, says a bombshell report by the U.K.’s Daily Mail (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5090399/Bill-Clinton-accused-sexual-assault-four-women.html).
According to the report, Clinton has been notified that four separate women plan to testify that the former president sexually assaulted them after leaving the White House in 2001. Best selling author and journalist Ed Klein says he has been made aware of the report and that a member of Clinton’s legal team has confirmed the allegations.
This is not the first time that Clinton has been accused of sexual misconduct.
The 42nd president and husband of former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was famously impeached in 1998 on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice relating to an affair with his much younger intern Monica Lewinsky.
Clinton was also accused of varying degrees of sexual assault by a slew of women, including Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey and has admitted to at least two extramarital affairs during his marriage.
Klein, who has penned a number of politically motivated tell-all books, says the women coming forward this time to accuse Clinton were employed in “low-level positions” at an organization owned by billionaire playboy Ron Burkle. Klein asserts that many of the incidents in question took place on Burkle’s private jet — which he claims was commonly referred to as “Air Fuck One.”
Klein reports that in an effort to buy the women’s continued silence, Clinton has engaged in lengthy negotiations with their attorneys and is prepared to pay a hefty sum to secure just that.
If successful, this will not the first time that Clinton has settled out of court. In 1998 Clinton paid Paula Jones, a former Arkansas state employee who worked for Clinton during his term as Governor, $850,000 to drop a civil suit Jones had filed against him in which she accused the then president of exposing himself to her inside a Little Rock hotel. The information which surfaced as a result of that case helped lead to Clinton’s impeachment.
