Meet Maggie Williams, Hillary Clinton's new campaign manager
Daily News ^ | February 11, 2008 | Thomas M. DeFrank

Posted on 02/11/2008 5:18:56 AM PST by ricks_place

WASHINGTON - Among Billaryland's inner circle, Maggie Williams is renowned as the ultimate Hillary loyalist, fierce and unwavering in her devotion for nearly 25 years.

As the First Lady's chief of staff, her office was in the West Wing, right next to Hillary's.

Her title gave away the extent of her clout: assistant to the President as well as Hillary's gatekeeper and chief enforcer.

Even detractors agree with her admirers that Williams would go to the mat for Hillary.

A Kansas City native, Williams, 53, was a central player in the Clinton damage-control machine during the White House years.

In 1995, a uniformed Secret Service officer swore under oath he saw her leave White House lawyer and Hillary confidant Vince Foster's office carrying documents after Foster committed suicide. Williams denied it.

She ran up more than $100,000 in legal bills defending Hillary in various investigations.

A former aide to Reps. Morris Udall of Arizona and Robert Torricelli (later senator) of New Jersey, Williams' ties to Hillary date to when they both were at the Children's Defense Fund in the 1980s.

After the Clintons left the White House, Williams was named president of Fenton Communications, a leading public relations and consulting firm.

When Bill and Hillary Clinton made remarks before the South Carolina primary that offended African-Americans, the campaign put her on the airwaves to try to quell the uproar.

"She's never run a political campaign, but she has run a staff and isn't afraid to crack heads,"

How dare you make such an implication. Hillary had/still has no idea who hired Craig Livingstone or what he was doing with 900 FBI files. She probably doesn’t even know Craig Livingstone...if you don’t believe me, just ask her.

It won’t be pretty. But it won’t happen suddenly, and in front of cameras. There will be stories of “Mommie Dearest” type of confrontations in front of staff and underling sycophants. Her temper is legend, and her violent outbursts are documented. She rules by decree and fear. When the staff starts putting out “feelers” and resumes, look out, she’s gonna blow!..............pun intended.....

Well, you can’t blame him. Maggie may well be gay, too. I think this skank was the one who went into Vince Foster’s office after he died to remove documents.

Personally, I am enjoying Hill getting "young women" "involved" in her life and campaign. <'/sarc...

Those 900 FBI Files are from 1992. In 1992, Barack Obama was washing cars or something. He is not in those files.

If Clinton pulls out the nomination purely through dirty backroom deals, it will damage her turnout in the general election.

If Obama wins, the Clintons will do anything they can to submarine him so Hillary Clinton will have a shot at the 2012 nomination.

She will be 69 years old in November 2016 - probably her last feasible chance if 2008 doesn't work out.

This Democrat situation could really help the GOP whichever way it goes.

I believe Maggie Williams is one of the many Clintonites who fled the USA in order to avoid being subpoenaed by Kenneth Starr. I believe she has been living in France.

Abedin is, in real life, rather gangly and nondescript with bad skin.

As long as you are skinny and young, fashion photgraphers can make almost anyone look great.

“Clean-up Maggie” - well the Clintons are getting ready to fight dirty - word is that Schumer and Mark Penn are already strong arming the Super Delegats and trying to Michigan and Florida reinstated.

You don’t bring in “Clean-up Maggie” into the picture unless some unscrupulous, possibly illegal stuff is going down.

Uh, no. He graduated Harvard Law in '91 and worked for a civil rights law firm in Chicago in '92, the year he married Princeton and Harvard Law grad Michelle Robinson.

Pile on Hillary by all means, but don't underestimate the other cloud on the horizon.

If you can’t remember Maggie Williams, go here. She was knee-deep in the Johnny Chung scandal.

Flashback: March 17, 1997, Time mag:

Sometimes,” President Bill Clinton mused on Friday afternoon, “there is a difference between what is legal and what ought to be done.” And with that he offered a guided tour of Washington’s favorite hideaway–the fertile, foggy valley that lies somewhere between what is wrong and what is illegal. You don’t have to be a lawyer to get in, but it helps to think like one.

Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Maggie Williams, was spending the day there in March 1995, when California businessman Johnny Chung walked into her White House office one morning and handed her a check for $50,000. It was just “a rather unusual circumstance,” Clinton explained last week. She didn’t actually ask Chung for the money as the price of admission to sit in on the President’s radio address two days later. She wasn’t “receiving” contributions on federal property; she was just passing them along. And she certainly didn’t “solicit” them, which federal law forbids.

Or does it? Or did she? Chung’s lawyer, Brian Sun, told TIME that Chung had approached Williams’ aide Evan Ryan the day before, hoping to arrange a cozy lunch in the White House mess for some Chinese businessmen and a later meeting with the First Lady. Somehow the subject turned to Democratic Party needs. Ryan remarked that the President’s party had to cover the costs of political events held by the First Lady at the White House, although Ryan “does not recall” that conversation. So Chung came back the next day and handed Williams that “unsolicited” $50,000 check for the Democratic National Committee. According to Sun, Chung did so with the understanding that it would help him gain access for his guests, who indeed dined in the mess and had their pictures taken with Hillary the next day.

I remember (ron ignoble) who could not even get a job as an immigratiion officer prior to (kommie klinton’s rise to power). Klintoon appointed him as a Under-secretary of the Dept of The Treasury, (klintoon created this position) for (ron boy)

Ron boy, had a ghost writer publish a book concerning the Waco Murders by the jack-booted klintoon thugs in the ATF/ FBI. The book is full of lies and pre-fabrication about Koresh and his followers.

Reno, Noble, Klintoon ATF, FBI lied, so that men, women and children died in a mass murder here in America.

The crime scene was leveled to destroy any evidence and cover this murder of innocents by our government jack-booted thugs.

If shrillary steals the election then we all should prepare for the “American Waco. “Unintended Consequences” is a book worth reading for hillary will unleash her govt selected goons on Americans, who do not obey her “Communist Manifesto Agenda/Polices.”

Respectfully,
NSNR

Something isn't right. I don't think Maggie Williams is married to Ron Noble, at least not the Waco/Interpol dude. In this link, Answers.com, it says he married a Spanish professor in 2001. I see no mention of Maggie Williams.

This is the women who took the files from Vince’s office home with her. When asked at the White Water hearings why she took them home, her reply was she had to do laundry in the middle of the day. This is also the women who lived in France after the White Water hearings until the dust settled.

I heard someone ask this question: In the whole, big state of New York, there was no one who would run for senator? They had to settle for Her Heinous, a carpetbagger from Illinois by way of Arkansas?? And she has to spend millions to get and retain the seat??

Looks like a fun bunch. What do they do for entertainment? Go to an abortion clinic and cheer the teenagers on?

I worked for a woman at the Pentagon once who was just awful. She hated men, and surrounded herself with synchophants who were either weak willed women who kneeled at her high heels; or emasculated wimpy men.

Her crowd looked very similar to that Hillary "chick trip" poster you have.

There was, however, one very capable female Colonel who was no slouch herself. She saw right through this awful woman, and had her nailed the first day. You could sense the tension when they were together. One day, the awful woman (a GM-15) tried to set up the Colonel to fail publicly. It backfired - BIG TIME.

The smiles in the Pentagon corridors that day were a mile wide. It was simply glorious.
