Skip to comments.Unseal files, Susan McDougal asks - Whitewater details needed for movie on her life, she says

LITTLE ROCK Susan McDougal of Camden, a friend and former business partner of President Clintons who became well-known in the late 1990s for refusing to cooperate with a special Whitewater prosecutor, on Tuesday sought to have her federal grand jury testimony unsealed.
Theres going to be a movie produced about Susans role in this [the Whitewater investigation], and theres some information in her grand jury testimony thats relevant to that, and Susan and I think the public ought to have aright to know about it, said her attorney, Bobby McDaniel of Jonesboro.
McDaniel said the testimony, as well as related court pleadings, if unsealed, will be embarrassing to our government, frankly. ... Most reasonably minded people will think its ridiculous.

McDaniel noted that his son, Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel, who is a state co-coordinator of Hillary Rodham Clintons presidential campaign, isnt involved in the project.

They’re remaking The Happy Hooker?
Wait: didn’t she go to jail expressly to prevent the release of any such information?
Actually, I’m pretty confused too. I thought she was in jail because she WOULD NOT testify.
she went to jail to avoid Arkancide
Was in college with Susan. We were part of the same drama team. She was flakey back then, too.
Attorney Bobby McDaniel’s contact form:
I can’t believe no one had that username until now! lol
Sounds like she took her drama coaching overly serious!
Ah well, it is not long before she commits Arkancide.
That's the way I remember it. She could not testify truthfully because it would get her and the Clinton's in deep trouble. Her repeated statements "Ken Star wanted me to Lie" in answer to why she did not testify were interesting logic that was bought by the MSM. If she testified honestly she would go to jail, so that darn Star was forcing her to lie to stay out of trouble.
Exactly. She was a drama queen.
And the only reason why they're cooperating with this movie is because it will be a fictionalized version of events which makes Ken Starr the villan and her the heroine, right?
When it’s expedient for Susan she wants the information release. When it’s expedient for the WHOLE COUNTRY, mmmm...not so much.
Selfish little toy of Slick Willie and the Hilliary, she was.
Susan, I hate to break this to you, but your story is so, so dated!
The new star is Plame. And even she is beginning to flame out.
Didn't do Jim McDougal much good.
Yeah, but it has been retitled as “Diary of Dumb Slut”
I think Rosie O’Donnell would be the perfect actress to play the part of Susan McDougal!
Hope she looks good in orange.
What’s wrong with having Barbara Streisand play her?
Or Joan Rivers?
Who will play the role of Bill Clinton?
Susan, Susan, Susan. If the full details were released the movie would not be about your life.
I met the McDougals once, back in the days when she was wearing hot pants and riding horses in TV commercials.
Did bill clinton use handcuffs on Monica?
They need to unseal the files for a movie but not for a campaign?
Screw her. Either the public has a right to know or we don’t. We DON’T have a pressing need to have her filtered take on it.
We saw in Monica’s case that the Clintons PAID people to lie under oath for them and encouraged them to do so.
We know the technique they used to avoid conviction for their crimes.
Orange makes Squeaky Fromme look fat...
I dunno. Charlize Theron is an amazing actress who did a pretty amazing job portraying a female criminal lowlife in "Monster":
No, just a paper bag with a hole cut in the front.
Monica was a “two bagger”..!
Sounds like she was more scared of the Clintons than Ken Star. The G. Gordon Liddy of Whitewatergate.
By the time the entertainment industry gets through with this one, it will indeed be Saint Susan.
You really have to wonder....what idiot would go to jail...for Bill Clinton...rather than provide testimony? Its amazing to watch people as they stand up and side with Bill over and over and over...for nothing.
Please let us put “acting” in it’s proper perspective. The epitome of an “acting” career is an Academy award. It separates those truly talented people that have spent a lifetime honing their “craft”.
Tatum O’Neil won an Oscar for her FIRST film role in Paper Moon at TEN years of age.
Haing S. Ngor won his Oscar for taking time off from his medical practice so he could make his FIRST film called The Killing Fields.
So for the life of me I don’t understand the greatest of oxymorons, a talented actor
It’s a great website, but I feel compelled to warn everyone:
Don’t go there if you have anything else to do that day (or that week). :)
She can’t remember her own GJ testimony??? Typical clintonite type of request...She obviously can’t remember the story she told then and is afraid to tell a different story that doesn’t match the first one, lest she be retried again...
Not sure what your point is, but as far as I am concerned watching Charlize Theron’s portrayal of Eileen Wuornos was a jaw dropping, absolutely astonishingly brilliant performance.
If her performance in that film was not great acting, then there has never been great acting in any film.
