NEWSWEEK KILLS STORY ON WHITE HOUSE INTERN

BLOCKBUSTER REPORT: 23-YEAR OLD, FORMER WHITE HOUSE INTERN, SEX RELATIONSHIP WITH PRESIDENT

**World Exclusive**
**Must Credit the DRUDGE REPORT**

At the last minute, at 6 p.m. on Saturday evening, NEWSWEEK magazine killed a story that was destined to shake official Washington to its foundation: A White House intern carried on a sexual affair with the President of the United States!

The DRUDGE REPORT has learned that reporter Michael Isikoff developed the story of his career, only to have it spiked by top NEWSWEEK suits hours before publication. A young woman, 23, sexually involved with the love of her life, the President of the United States, since she was a 21-year-old intern at the White House. She was a frequent visitor to a small study just off the Oval Office where she claims to have indulged the president's sexual preference. Reports of the relationship spread in White House quarters and she was moved to a job at the Pentagon, where she worked until last week.

The young intern wrote long love letters to President Clinton, which she delivered through a delivery service. She was a frequent visitor at the White House after midnight, where she checked in the WAVE logs as visiting a secretary named Betty Curry, 57.

The DRUDGE REPORT has learned that tapes of intimate phone conversations exist.

The relationship between the president and the young woman become strained when the president believed that the young woman was bragging about the affair to others.

NEWSWEEK and Isikoff were planning to name the woman. Word of the story's impeding release caused blind chaos in media circles; TIME magazine spent Saturday scrambling for its own version of the story, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned. The NEW YORK POST on Sunday was set to front the young intern's affair, but was forced to fall back on the dated ABC NEWS Kathleen Willey break.

The story was set to break just hours after President Clinton testified in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case.

Ironically, several years ago, it was Isikoff that found himself in a shouting match with editors who were refusing to publish even a portion of his meticulously researched investigative report that was to break Paula Jones. Isikoff worked for the WASHINGTON POST at the time, and left shortly after the incident to build them for the paper's sister magazine, NEWSWEEK.

Michael Isikoff was not available for comment late Saturday. NEWSWEEK was on voice mail.

The White House was busy checking the DRUDGE REPORT for details.

Man, those were interesting days around here, too. It was from a Drudge headline on the morning the story broke on ABC that I found Free Republic, which Drudge had linked in his headline.

I don’t know if this site is real, but it sure seems accurate. I’m sure the FBI knew about this.

And other than the incorrect spelling of Betty Currie, every part of the report turned out to be true. They’ve hated Drudge ever since.

One of the saddest things is Lewinsky’s declaration: “I hate Linda Tripp.” If Linda had not told Monica not to dry-clean the little blue dress, Monica would be “that girl that was found dead under the overpass in Georgetown...what was her name?”

You know; all of this is fun and it serves to the “pass the popcorn crowd”, but where is all of the real debate with Barak and Hillary? I mean, we don’t really need the Whitehouse papers on Hi’s performance in the past. Look at the illegal actions in the Healthcare fiasco. How many documented actions of her’s broke clear laws about secrecy an procedure?

What about the 50, 0r 500, or who many FBI files? What about the Bulling records that magically showed up in the Whitehouse living quarters? What about the Craig Livingstone hiring and reporting chain of command? What about the “I can’t recall” or I can’t remember” testimony before congress? What about all of these denials, broken laws and other egregious examples for her distain for the laws of our lands when these same laws she would have to swear to uphold? Barak, you had better get your head out of your butt and start playing hardball or you will be playing from defensive Catch-up mode and Hill will be running up the score.

Both of these slime buckets should stop that they are not responsible for what their staffs do but take responsibility and control their staffs of fire them. This Nevada fiasco where first casino delegate actions are allowed and now in the courts; Hill can control her participation in this court action and make her campaign and Felon law breaker husband of hers to go and play golf or something but keep his stupid and lying pie hole shut.

All in all, I guess it goes back to me wanting a Leader and not a manager for a president and I see nothing on the Dim’s side and only marginally better on the Republican side.

In other words; “PASS THE POPCORN”!

Is there a location that has imaged all of the ‘classic’ FR threads from the late 90’s that you know of?

I wish I had signed up much earlier than I did....

They are supposed to be matter of public record at the Clinton Presidential Lie-brary. Except that they are off limits and Bubba is "real upset" by that news. His hands are tied. He'd love to share them. Honest. < /suckers >
