Welcome to the Clinton Library -- dedicated to preserving the true
legacy of the 42nd President of the United States.
The Value of Women to Bill Clinton
Perhaps the most enduring legacy Bill Clinton left America is the elevation of sex becoming a household word and topic of discussion. Indeed, this progressive goal of corrupting the young with sexual promiscuity and fragmenting the family was one of Bill Clinton's biggest achievements. While we have had numerous leaders in the past with similar less than moral character as Bill Clinton, before leaving office he blazed a trail of adultery and deceit never before seen in the highest office of the United States.
The promiscuous agenda was first unraveled in Jan. 1994 when The American Spectator published an article detailing claims by two Arkansas state troopers who facilitated extramarital affairs and claimed to have seen then-Gov. Bill Clinton in compromising positions with dozens of women. Trooper Larry Patterson stated that since 1987, there were numerous long-term liaisons with women including the now well-known relationship with Gennifer Flowers. These included a staffer in Clinton's office; an Arkansas lawyer who was a Clinton appointee to a judgeship; the wife of a prominent judge; a local reporter; an employee at Arkansas Power and Light, and a cosmetic sales clerk at a Little rock department store.
There were also many brief affairs and one-time encounters involving Clinton and numerous women. The Arkansas state troopers said they were often called upon to act as intermediaries to arrange and conceal Clinton's extramarital encounters. They said they frequently picked up and delivered gifts from Clinton to various women, and often drove Clinton to meetings with women. "We were more than bodyguards. We had to lie, cheat and cover up for that man," said Larry Patterson.[Los Angeles Times, Dec. 21, 1993]
American Media Cover-up
The Sunday Telegraph of London reported the story of Sally Perdue, a former Miss Arkansas (1958) and local radio talk show host, who told of having a relationship with Clinton in 1983 when he was Arkansas governor.
Shortly after her story appeared in the press, she says, a man
identifying himself as Ron Tucker called her and claimed to represent the local
Democratic Party, offering her a lifetime federal job if she would be silent.
Then, she says, he threatened her with physical harm if she refused to
cooperate. Tucker allegedly threatened that Perdue would lose her job at nearby
Lindenwood College if she talked to the press again.
Once again it took the foreign media, the Sunday Telegraph of London, who also reported of the case of Gary Johnson, an Arkansas lawyer, who announced that he had a videotape of Clinton going into the apartment of his neighbor, Gennifer Flowers. Shortly afterwards, on June 26, 1992, three men appeared at his door, beat him unconscious and stole the tapes. The Telegraph also cites reports of mysterious break-ins suffered by The American Spectator magazine as it prepared to publish accusations by two Arkansas State Police troopers.
Clinton denied having a 12-year relationsip with Gennifer Flowers until January 17, 1998 when he finally admitted in a former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones deposition alleging then-Gov. Clinton sexually harassed her, that he did have a sexual relationship with Ms. Flowers.
To establish a pattern of sexual promiscuity, attorneys in Jones v. Clinton, who had heard some allegations about a relationship between Monica Lewinsky and Clinton, planned to depose Ms. Lewinsky.
Lewinsky, was a 21-year-old intern at the White House in 1995, when she
says she began an ongoing sexual relationship with Mr. Clinton. Ms. Lewinsky
was moved, prior to the 1996 election, to the public affairs office at the
Pentagon, where she and Linda Tripp worked together.
Mr. Clinton responded to these allegations saying to Jim Lehrer
According to Hillary Clinton's spokeswoman, Marsha Berry, Hillary Clinton first learned over the weekend prior to his grand jury testimony that her husband would testify to having an improper relationship with Monica Lewinsky at the White House. The first lady issued a statement of support for her husband, saying through her spokeswoman that she remains committed to her marriage and loves her husband. For months, she defended her husband against allegations of an affair, dismissing them as a right-wing conspiracy.
Eventually President Clinton was issued with a subpoena to
testify before a Grand Jury, which was recorded on video. At the deposition,
the judge ordered a precise legal definition of the term "sexual relations"
that Clinton claims to have construed to mean only vaginal intercourse. A
much-quoted statement from Clinton's grand jury testimony showed him
questioning the precise use of the word "is." Clinton said, "It depends on what
the meaning of the word 'is' is. If theif heif 'is' means is and
never has been, that is notthat is one thing. If it means there is none,
that was a completely true statement".
Clinton said, "I did have a relationship with Miss Lewinsky that was not appropriate. In fact it was wrong. It constituted a critical lapse in judgement and a personal failure on my part, for which I am solely and completely responsible."
On September 11, 1998, the Starr Report was released detailing the investigative account of President Bill Clinton by Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr.
Articles of Impeachment
In early October, the House of Representatives Judiciary
Committee voted to begin impeachment hearings. A few days later, the full House
approved an impeachment inquiry, with 31 Democrats as well as all the
Republicans in favor. On December 9th., the Republican majority on the House of
Representatives Judiciary Committee proposed four articles of impeachment
against the president. The articles included two counts of perjury, one of
obstruction of justice and one of abuse of power. They were approved by the
committee four days later. On Dec. 19, 1998, William Jefferson Clinton become
the second president in the history of the United States to be impeached by the
House of Representatives for perjury in front of a grand jury and obstruction
Bill Clinton has disgraced the office of the Presidency and has done irreparable harm to the United States of America. He personally destroyed his office as a role model for our children through his disgraceful behavior.
