Kathleen Willey, the former volunteer aide to Bill Clinton who says she was sexually harassed by the president in the 1990s, is now sounding the alarm about the potential danger of Hillary Clinton becoming president.
‚ÄúHillary Clinton¬†is¬†the war on women, and that‚Äôs what needs to be exposed here,‚ÄĚ Willey said Sunday night on¬†Aaron Klein‚Äôs WABC Radio show.
‚ÄúThe point is what this woman is capable of doing to other women while she‚Äôs running a campaign basically on women‚Äôs issues. It just doesn‚Äôt make any sense. She singlehandedly orchestrated every one of the investigations of all these women [who accused her husband of sexual crimes]. They‚Äôre the people reminding us of how sordid this all is.‚ÄĚ
Willey continued to rail against both Bill and Hillary Clinton, saying, ‚ÄúThey take up all the oxygen in the room, and everybody is depressed. We‚Äôre gonna go back to all the sordid details [if Hillary runs for president]. They need to just go away because they‚Äôre forcing themselves on us is the way I feel. Just pack your bags. You‚Äôve had your 15 minutes. ‚Ä¶ Stop forcing us to have to look at this stuff again. We‚Äôre sick of it!‚ÄĚ
Willey stressed it was not herself who was the one responsible for dredging up old dirt.
‚ÄúThey‚Äôre the ones that are reminding us of all that behavior. Not me! They‚Äôre the ones.‚ÄĚ
And Willey also lashed into feminist organizations who never seem interested in the harassment against her by the Clintons.
‚ÄúAll of these women‚Äôs groups, they‚Äôre all pro-Hillary, they need to ‚Ä¶ talk to someone like me and listen here, what Hillary Clinton has done to me and many, many, many other women. They are so hypocritical, it‚Äôs unbelievable. And this is the woman that wants to be president.‚ÄĚ
As WND reported, Willey and her husband, Ed, were Democratic activists who founded Virginians for Clinton and helped send Bill and Hillary to the White House in 1992.
While serving as a volunteer in the White House and facing financial hard times, Willey says she met with Bill Clinton in the Oval Office to request a paying position. But instead of getting help, she says, she was subjected to ‚Äúnothing short of serious sexual harassment.‚ÄĚ Distraught, Willey fled Clinton‚Äôs presence, only to discover that her husband Ed had committed suicide that same tragic afternoon.
Later, she was drawn ‚Äúunwillingly‚ÄĚ into the Paula Jones lawsuit, the Ken Starr investigation and impeachment proceedings.
Willey also claims the Clinton tag team was behind a string of events that can only be described as a mob-style intimidation campaign to keep her silent that even included breaking into her home to steal her memoirs of the events.
Nonetheless, Willey wrote about her experiences with Bill Clinton‚Äôs sex addiction and Hillary Clinton‚Äôs revenge in the book¬†‚ÄúTarget: Caught in the Crosshairs of Bill & Hillary Clinton.‚ÄĚ
Willey wrote ‚ÄúTarget‚ÄĚ when Hillary Clinton was running for president the first time in 2007, and her comments today are all the more relevant now that Clinton is considering a 2016 presidential bid and a number of figures are examining the former first lady‚Äôs reactions to her husband‚Äôs indiscretions in the Oval Office.
Just last month, for example, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., made headlines by bringing up Bill Clinton‚Äôs notorious affair with another White House volunteer, Monica Lewinsky, on ‚ÄúMeet the Press.‚ÄĚ
Paul told host David Gregory, ‚ÄúThe media seems to have given President Clinton a pass on this. He took advantage of a girl who was 20 years old and an intern in his office. There is no excuse for that, and that is predatory behavior.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúAnd then they have the gall to stand up and say Republicans are having a war on women?‚ÄĚ Paul asked rhetorically. ‚ÄúSo yes, I think it‚Äôs a factor. It‚Äôs not Hillary‚Äôs fault, but it is a factor in judging Bill Clinton and history.‚ÄĚ
Then earlier this month,¬†the Washington Free Beacon broke the explosive news¬†of a confidential memo issued in 1992 by Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton‚Äôs presidential campaign, detailing their ‚Äúresearch on Hillary Clinton.‚ÄĚ
The memo is one of many previously unpublished documents from the archives of one of Hillary Clinton‚Äôs best friends and advisers, documents that portray Hillary as a strong, ambitious and ‚Äúruthless‚ÄĚ Democratic operative.
‚ÄúThe full contents of the archive, which before 2010 was closed to the public, have not previously been reported on and shed new light on Clinton‚Äôs three decades in public life,‚ÄĚ the Free Beacon reports. ‚ÄúThe records paint a complex portrait of Hillary Clinton, revealing her to be a loyal friend, devoted mother, and a cutthroat strategist who relished revenge against her adversaries and complained in private that nobody in the White House was ‚Äėtough and mean enough.‚Äô‚ÄĚ
The Free Beacon‚Äôs report also includes mention of Willey as well as Hillary‚Äôs reactions to the Lewinsky scandal and reports of Bill‚Äôs affairs and rumored affairs with Gennifer Flowers, Elizabeth Ward and Lencola Sullivan.
