Former White House volunteer Kathleen Willey gave an interview to the Examiner which was published Sunday. In the interview Willey says the sexual harassment accusations by women like herself also involve Hillary because she has been defending Bill:
“This no longer about Bill Clinton’s transgressions or his infidelities or girlfriends or sex … it’s not about that anymore,” Willey told theWashington Examiner. “What it’s about is the actions that his wife has taken against the women that he has raped and assaulted.”…
Willey said she has bristled at Hillary Clinton’s attempts to convince voters of her commitment to protecting women.
“Hillary Clinton’s been calling me a bimbo for 19 years, as well as Paula [Jones] and Juanita [Broaddrick] and Gennifer,” Willey said.
Willey claims she was groped during a meeting with the President in 1993. She had arranged the meeting because she needed money and wanted to ask the president for a paid position at the White House rather than working as a volunteer. During the meeting she claimed Clinton kissed her on the mouth, grabbed her breast and told her, “I’ve wanted to do this ever since I laid eyes on you.” Clinton claimed that he might have kissed Willey on the forehead but denied all of the other accusations. From a Washington Post story published in 1998:
On March 15, Willey made her allegation public with a splash. During an interview on “60 Minutes” she described in detail the crude sexual advance allegedly made by the president and said that when he denied groping her under oath, he committed perjury.
Clinton continues to insist that he told the truth in his deposition, in which he denied having any form of sexual relations with Willey. After Willey’s TV interview, the White House made public copies of several letters showing that Willey sought Clinton’s attention even after their purported encounter.
Willey would later file a lawsuit against the Clintons for the release of those letters without her permission.
After the alleged encounter in the White House and the suicide of her husband (which coincidentally happened on the same day) Willey later had a sexual relationship with a younger man which she lied about when questioned by the FBI. Willey later admitted to the affair when confronted with evidence. The FBI did not charge her for making the false statement but her credibility was damaged.
In 2007 Willey published a book, Target, about her experiences including the accusation that her home was broken into and a pre-publication copy of the book stolen. Here’s an interview she did with Neil Cavuto in 2007:
