Sen. Clinton Allegedly Intimidated Husband's Sexual Accusers

(CNSNews.com) - A new book detailing the alleged sexual improprieties of former president Bill Clinton also charges that current U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton played a major role in threatening and intimidating her husband's accusers.

Candice E. Jackson, author of "Their Lives: The Women Targeted by the Clinton Machine," told Cybercast News Service that in addition to the "sexual abuse" she alleges was committed by Bill Clinton, "Hillary's involvement is just as devastating and just as important in all this."

"[Hillary Clinton] was right there in the inner circle taking a lead in giving these women zero credibility, in attacking them in the public and through the press and in participating in all of these scare tactics, like hiring private investigators to threaten them and follow them," Jackson explained.

Hillary Clinton is "either as misogynistic as her husband or she is simply willing to conspire to mistreat women if that's what it takes to preserve their political careers," Jackson added.

She said the former president's behavior toward numerous women "demonstrated sexual harassment and sexual abuse and ultimately misogyny on his part.

Jackson said Bill Clinton was guilty of "a true lack of respect of for women that allowed him to use and abuse them and throw them away when he was done and do whatever it took to keep them quiet if they tried to speak up about it."

Jackson is an attorney and formerly worked for the legal watchdog group Judicial Watch, which has filed numerous lawsuits over the last decade targeting both Bill and Hillary Clinton for their alleged roles in various controversies.

Jackson's book details how Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey, both accusers of Bill Clinton, dealt with the White House spin machine as it allegedly attempted to discredit, bribe, audit, threaten and intimidate them.

"The gravity, the seriousness of the mistreatment that they suffered, really just didn't come through in the mainstream press at the time," Jackson said. Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign and subsequent two terms in office were surrounded by a host of different women alleging sexual improprieties.

Broaddrick alleged that then-Arkansas attorney general Bill Clinton raped her in a hotel in Little Rock, Ark., in 1978.

"People need to remember this side of Clinton before writing him up as a hero for women." said Broaddrick in a press release regarding the book "Their Lives," which goes on sale Tuesday.

Willey alleged she was sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton in the White House in 1993 during his first term.

"I appreciate [Jackson's] painstaking attempt to express the true nightmare Bill and Hillary put me through." Willey said of the book in a statement.

Jackson admits that one of her goals it to prevent Sen. Hillary Clinton from being elected president in 2008. Mrs. Clinton to expected to run for re-election to the Senate representing New York State in 2006 and then perhaps launch a Democratic bid to win the White House that her husband occupied between 1993 and 2001.

"We have let the Clintons go to the White House once and I think this is a serious enough abuse issue to prevent them from going there again," Jackson said.

Jackson, who describes herself as a "libertarian feminist," hopes her book will open the eyes of feminists in the U.S. to the "importance of not allowing the Clintons to escape with a reputation for being pro-woman when they have truly destroyed women along the way.

"The Clintons have really gotten away with a political reputation of being defenders of women's rights and women's issues," Jackson said. "To me that really says a lot about the state of feminism in this country. It seems like it doesn't even matter whether women are brutally mistreated as long as politicians support abortion rights," she added.

Calls to the New York City press office of former president Bill Clinton and the Washington office of Sen. Hillary Clinton were not returned.

Author is correct - Clintons really couldn't care a wit about women....or anyone but themselves, for that matter. But seriously, this is news to anyone? And who among us really thinks this will change the mind of Leftists? Yes, BillHill are scum, but they are their scum. And let's face it, the Left is scum. They are what they support.

That's the heart of the matter right there. As long as their policy positions are right, their behavior towards individual women is overlooked and denied by the radical feminists. And this kind of double standard is repeated over and over by those on the left.

The sad thing about these books is that most of us conservatives have such Clinton-skates-again fatigue. I'm so sick of these two, I can barely muster a sigh. However, it's going to take so much more energy than I have to defeat her in '08.

And the entire time not a peep out of the organization that was suppose to stand up for abuses of this nature. NOW National Organization for Women.

Evidentally they are nothing more that a liberal lobbyist group.

Hillery has already been selected as our next president, keeping the string intact.

However, it is critical Hitlery somehow win over this new Pope, as Mrs. Clinton MUST take advantage of the Catholic fad the media is promoting upon the sheeple...

So true, to all your replies. And you can be that with Hillary's pending run for the White House, she has been gearing up the destruction machine to neutralize (or disappear)all of the women Clinton has reportedly been seeing since leaving office. But, will anybody care, besides us? Apparently, very few cared the first time around, despite the diligent work by the American Spectator and other independent-minded journalists. This is my first post on FR, and I'm proud to be among you!

Like the old saying says, you lie down with dogs, you're gonna get fleas. These so-called "women's groups" have sold their souls to defend Clinton because he steadfastly stood up for their reputed "right" to have abortions. Well, as far as I'm concerned, they're stuck with him. Anyone with the eyes to see knew what Bill Clinton was about. I have no sympathy for those who now claim to have second thoughts.

I haven't lost energy yet in seeing this scum thrown onto the trash heap of history. Not a whole lot would make me happier than to witness that.

I have enough energy for the both of us Annie, so I'll carry on and you can take a breather. Just try to resurface in 2008 all rested and ready for battle. ;)

Much to do about nothing. Hillary, with all the help from all the media, will skate through the nomination and very possibly win the 2008 election. Remember, Scary Kerry, lost by 1 state.

She will deny, deny, deny and the media will make sure her words are heard. This book will get virtually no mention and when it does, it will be called another hit piece by the Clinton haters.

Personally, I don't really want a prez who acts the weenie by spitting on or whining about x presidents. He has to maintain appearances and respect for the office. He may very well feel sorry for the pitiful and weak-of-character people really are. But bottom line, W's not going to disrespect the office of President.

But if all of what you say is true then if we were smart we would just stop wasting energy and let Hill-da-Beast have it all?

I agree she gets a great deal of help from the media, but the media isn't what it used to be. Think Dan Rather, and how he was thrown out on his Keister. And sure, Kerry only lost by one state, but he lost. Which proves the numbers are out there and they are mostly for the right side.

The day I put Hill-da-Beast on a pedestal and say she can't be beat is the day I'll just go ahead and join the Demwits.

That day isn't going to happen while I'm still alive, but after I'm dead, who knows? I vote Republican until the day I die and then I'll probably vote Democrat. Lots of other dead people already do.

I'm all for keeping the heat on Hillary. I agree with you, one of these days the media is going to have to begin reporting the REAL news.

Maybe 2008 will be the magical year. I won't count on it. By the time the media begins reporting the truth about her, she will be either a past president, or a retired Senator. We all know the job of Senator is merely a stepping stone to her 2008 run. Perhaps Kerry or one of the democrats will ruin her. I doubt that too.

That is why I think that these poor women, who probably want no part of this, need to go on the campaign trail and get live audiences outdoors listening to them. They have to command a forum that the media can not avoid. They need to say things like

"Americans! Especially Democrats! Please listen to me. I was a Clinton supporter! I AM a Democrat to this day [if true]! This is not about politics, people. This is about a man who sexually attacks women. Yes, a sexual predator, and a woman who is his accomplice after the fact, aiding and abetting him, slandering an innocent victim in front of the world in order to make a sex offender look like the innocent victim. This couple should not be given the privilege of the Presidency! Remember what this rapist once said: 'Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me TWICE, shame on me!'"
