Judicial Watch Appeals Flowers Lawsuit against Hillary Clinton, Carville, and Stephanopoulos
Judicial Watch ^ | 11/16/05 | Judicial Watch

Posted on 11/20/2005 12:29:09 PM PST by wagglebee

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch, the public interest group that fights government corruption, announced today that on December 6, 2005, Judicial Watch will take its lawsuit on behalf of Gennifer Flowers to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. The lawsuit alleges Ms. Flowers was subjected to a vicious smear campaign orchestrated by Hillary Clinton and carried out by former Clinton administration aides James Carville and George Stephanopoulos. Ms. Flowers was targeted after she publicly confessed to having a long-term affair with former President Clinton.

According to Judicial Watch’s original complaint filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada: “Defendants Carville and Stephanopoulos, and those acting in concert with them, have continuously libeled and slandered…Gennifer Flowers, as well as held her in a false light, in order to smear, defame, and harm her.”

The case was originally dismissed by a lower court, which found that Judicial Watch could not prove the defendants acted with actual malice, or knowledge of the falsity of their statements, prompting Judicial Watch's appeal. According to evidence that will be presented by Judicial Watch, however, both Carville and Stephanopoulos were well aware the statements they made about Ms. Flowers were false, yet continued to repeat them publicly in order to destroy her reputation.

In separate interviews with CNN, Carville and Stephanopoulos falsely claimed Ms. Flowers “doctored” taped telephone conversations she had with President Clinton that proved they had an affair. In making this argument, they purportedly relied upon the analysis of a second generation copy of Ms. Flowers’ audiotape by convicted felon and “detective to the stars,” Anthony Pellicano, even though they knew Pellicano had given the Los Angeles Times a different and more truthful analysis, saying, “I don’t know that it [the tape] was doctored.”

The court had also previously dismissed Judicial Watch's conspiracy charge against Hillary Clinton, ruling the statute of limitations had expired. However, Judicial Watch will prove Carville and Stephanopoulos made defamatory statements about Ms. Flowers at the behest of Hillary Clinton up to 1998. Judicial Watch filed its lawsuit in 1999, well within the 3-year statute of limitations.

“Hillary Clinton has proven she is willing to destroy anyone who might interfere with her political ambitions,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Hillary Clinton saw Gennifer Flowers as a threat to Bill Clinton’s candidacy and the evidence shows she conspired with Carville and Stephanopoulos to spread lies about Ms. Flowers’ in order to ruin her credibility.”

“I am confident that if I am given a fair hearing with judges who will accurately review the evidence that my case will go forward and that justice will be served,” said Ms. Flowers.

Ms. Flowers originally filed the lawsuit in November 1999. U.S. District Court Judge Philip Pro dismissed it in August 2000, only to have the case reinstated by the U.S. Court of Appeals. A copy of Judicial Watch’s complaint on behalf of Ms. Flowers can be found on www.judicialwatch.org.

Of course with the Clintonistas, truth has never mattered as much as results.

Isn't this Larry Klayman's outfit?

IIRC, they have a spotty track record.Hopefully, they've got their ducks in a row for this one.

I sure would like to see Ms.Flowers make paupers of The Beast and her Flying Monkeys.

Can't they use Clinton's own statements about Flowers in his Paula Jones deposition to help their case ?

Q: Did you ever have sexual relations with Gennifer Flowers?
A: ... The answer to your question ... is yes.
Q: On how many occasions?
A: Once.
Q: In what year?
A: 1977.

I read the intitial appellate court decision that reinstated Flowers' lawsuit. Say what you want about Judicial Watch, this is one case where they have doe a good job and I would fully expect the lawsuit to be reinstated once again by he Circuit Court of Appeals.

Any attack at this point that affects Mrs. Clinton is a good one.
Love to see if any assistants at the White House had film of her stealing the paintings and silverware.
Or one calling someone,"a f-ing Jew".

Great, and the judges appointed by Clinton will get to hear the case. Do you think they will recuse themselves?

Why was it dismissed a second time? I ddn't follow that part.

As for reinstatement, my confidence in the Ninth cicuit is such that I'm not holding my breath on any case that may damage a democrat.

Too many federal court judges are lazy and they are prone to cover up and protect public officials; even when the law is clear. I have personal experience in such a situation.

As for reinstatement, my confidence in the Ninth cicuit is such that I'm not holding my breath on any case that may damage a democrat.

I am very confident the 9th Cicuit will reinstate the case. If the 9th Circuit wanted to protect hillary and her associates, they would not have reversed the district court the first time. Expect the next 9th Circuit opinion in this case to not be so polite to the district court judge in this case.

Ironically, this is the type of case where being in the 9th Circuit is good; and only very rarely gets reversed by the USSC.

Standard operating procedure for the clintons. Click to hear what Dick Morris has to say.


(viewing movie requires Flash Player 7, available HERE)

 

"Crucial to this protective wall was the secret police, a group of private detectives hired to protect hillary and 'Saturday night bill.' Their tactics included digging up dirt on women who might be linked to bill in order to cow them into silence. There is even some evidence of possible physical intimidation."

HEAR DICK MORRIS




 

"I got the letters from Pellicano to these women intimidating them. I had tapes of conversations from Pellicano to the women. I got handwritten letters from the women."
[Pellicano played a critical role in Mr. Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign by "suppressing" "inconvenient" accounts from several women, by concocting fraudulent "proof" (later discredited) that Gennifer Flowers doctored the damning tape of clinton, and again inside the clinton operation in January 1998, four days after the Monica Lewinsky story broke, to falsely paint Monica as simply a lying stalker, a claim later discredited by clinton's own DNA.]

There is reason to believe that he is a rapist ("You better get some ice on that," Juanita Broaddrick says he told her concerning her bit lip), and that he bombed a country to distract attention from legal difficulties arising from his glandular life, and that... [f]urthermore, the bargain that he and his wife call a marriage refutes the axiom that opposites attract. Rather, she, as much as he, perhaps even more so, incarnates Clintonism

GEORGE WILL
SLEAZE, THE SEQUEL




Connecticut Rep. Chris Shays said on a talk radio show Wednesday that, based on secret evidence he reviewed during the impeachment controversy, he believes President Clinton raped Juanita Broaddrick, not once, but twice.

Talk-show host Tom Scott of Clear Channel Broadcasting, New Haven (WELI 960) asked Shays about the mysterious impeachment "evidence room," prompting the GOP moderate to say that Broaddrick "disclosed that she had been raped, not once, but twice" to Judiciary Committee investigators.

Shays, who is often hailed by the New York Times for his independent judgment and good sense, found the evidence compelling:

"I believed that he had done it. I believed her that she had been raped 20 years ago. And it was vicious rapes, it was twice at the same event." Asked point blank if the president is a rapist, Shays said, "I would like not to say that it way. But the bottom line is that I believe that he did rape Broaddrick."

The rape took place while Bill was running for governor. Hillary came bursting into the room to talk to two people, one of whom I personally know.

She said "You won't believe what this [expletive] did now. He tried to rape some b*tch."

It was the job of these two to squelch the story.

"Who is Juanita Broaddrick? I've never heard of her!" cried Betty Friedan, the founder of modern feminism. Friedan's outburst came at last Friday's conference, entitled "The Legacy and Future of Hillary Rodham Clinton." Held at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington. D.C., the event offered a chilling microcosm of an angry, divided America.

For nearly an hour, a five-woman panel had been debating whether Hillary qualified as a "feminist heroine." I thought Broaddrick's claim of having been raped by Hillary's husband had some bearing on this point, so I broached the subject during the question-and-answer period. Friedan's dyspeptic denial followed.

Was Friedan telling the truth? Maybe. And maybe all those millions of Germans who professed ignorance of the death camps were telling the truth too. The problem is, having admitted her ignorance, Friedan showed no interest in exploring the matter further. And that was the problem with the Germans too.

Totalitarian impulses flourished at the conference. Taking a page from Soviet psychiatry, some Clintonites suggested that Hillary hating might be a mental illness.

Richard Poe
The Hillary Conspiracy




.In a letter to Mrs. Clinton recalling their meeting shortly after the reported assault occurred, she wondered about the significance of Mrs. Clinton's words to her at that time. Thank you, Mrs. Broaddrick says Mrs. Clinton told her, for "everything you do for Bill."

The not-so-subtle implication of the letter is that Mrs. Clinton is, in fact, her husband's enabler. Dealing with her husband's promiscuity and worse might keep her from dealing with the important issues facing the people of New York, namely her candidacy. One might call it a Faustian bargain except that even Mephistopheles might not lower himself to sign such a deal....

I remember it as though it was yesterday. I only wish that it were yesterday and maybe there would still be time to do something about what your husband, Bill Clinton, did to me. There was a political rally for Mr. Clinton's bid for governor of Arkansas. I had obligated myself to be at this rally prior to my being assaulted by your husband in April, 1978. I had made up my mind to make an appearance and then leave as soon as the two of you arrived. This was a big mistake, but I was still in a state of shock and denial. You had questioned the gentleman who drove you and Mr. Clinton from the airport. You asked him about me and if I would be at the gathering. Do you remember? You told the driver, "Bill has talked so much about Juanita", and that you were so anxious to meet me. Well, you wasted no time. As soon as you entered the room, you came directly to me and grabbed my hand. Do you remember how you thanked me, saying "we want to thank you for everything that you do for Bill". At that point, I was pretty shaken and started to walk off. Remember how you kept a tight grip on my hand and drew closer to me? You repeated your statement, but this time with a coldness and look that I have seen many times on television in the last eight years. You said, "Everything you do for Bill". You then released your grip and I said nothing and left the gathering.

What did you mean, Hillary? Were you referring to my keeping quiet about the assault I had suffered at the hands of your husband only two weeks before? Were you warning me to continue to keep quiet? We both know the answer to that question.

Yes, I can answer Brit Hume's question. You are the same Hillary that you were twenty years ago. You are cold, calculating and self-serving. You cannot tolerate the thought that you will soon be without the power you have wielded for the last eight years. Your effort to stay in power will be at the expense of the state of New York. I only hope the voters of New York will wake up in time and realize that Hillary Clinton is not an honorable or an honest person.

I will end by asking if you believe the statements I made on NBC Dateline when Lisa Myers asked if I had been assaulted and raped by your husband?
 
Or perhaps, you are like Vice-President Gore and did not see the interview.

AN OPEN LETTER TO HILLARY CLINTON
BY JUANITA BROADDRICK
SUNDAY OCT 15, 2000




 

"If you look at white women, and I think that was the key to this election, Kerry won 45% based on the exit polls--but they're generally in agreement--Kerry won 45%, Bush won 55% of white women. By contrast, Bush won only 45% of white women in 2000, so he upped is percentages by 10 points. In 1996, bill clinton won 48% of white women compared to Bob Dole's 43%. That is a huge, huge difference. I don't think you can lay all that at the doorstep of moral values. I think that this president unabashedly and abjectly took the issue of terror and used it to terrorize... white women."
