Lewinsky Email Redacted From Clinton Documents

By Rebecca Ballhaus

The latest batch of previously withheld presidential records from the Clinton administration redacts an email from a noteworthy source: Monica Lewinsky.

A redaction sheet in a collection of documents about former Gen. Wesley Clark lists an email from Ms. Lewinsky to Ashley Raines, an official in the White House office of administration. According to the footnote associated with the brief entry, an “unwarranted invasion of personal privacy” is cited as the reason for the email’s redaction.

The disclosure of Ms. Lewinsky’s sexual encounters with President Bill Clinton created a crisis in the White House, and Mr. Clinton was ultimately impeached by the House for perjury and obstruction of justice.

The date of the redacted email is October 22, 1997, when news outlets were beginning to learn of the affair. Two months later, in December, Ms. Lewinsky was subpoenaed by lawyers for Paula Jones, a former Arkansas state employee who was suing the president for sexual harassment.

DNA, perjury, cigars, blue dress, sinks, redactions. The legacy of our rock star ex-president.

Footnotes in the Starr Report reveal that Monica ate out Bill’s *a$$* also.

Remember that for Hillary’s run —if you’re on a ropeline ASK HER ABOUT HOW SHE FEELS ABOUT THAT.

Oral *anal* also —not just the other famous stuff.

It’s just starting for the lie train to keep chugging. If that’s just the Lewinsky angle, then how about the rest like Black Hawk Down?

That occurred to me 2 seconds after I hit "post" on my post of a couple of seconds ago.I'd be willing to bet that the Former Twelfth Lady was up to her eyeballs in this from the very beginning.

The more the Clinton trash is rehashed, the more it will cause Shillary problems.

While some have said Rand Paul is way off base by bringing up BJ’s sexual predatory nature, and Shillary’s complicity in same, I think Rand may be doing a real service in letting younger Low Information Voters know just how obnoxious and evil these people are.

I hadn’t heard that. Which means very few people heard it. Tom Delay was begging people to read the report. He should have just told the world what was in it.

As for Monica’s privacy, she lost that when she saved the dress.

It wouldn’t surprise me if that in the email Monica was saying that she had been told that Hillary had put out a hit on her.

If Monica had not listened to Linda Tripp and saved the dress, Monica would not have lived to see 1999.

I agree. And maybe that email said that she had the dress in a safe place. It saved her life.

Interesting this article states the e-mail was dated Oct. 12, 1997, as news outlets were beginning to learn of the affair.

TSHTF in Jan. 1998, when Drudge broke the story that the Washington Post and Newsweek magazine were sitting on the Lewinsky story. To me, the Lewinsky affair is clear evidence that the MSM manipulates news in that, they decide which stories to cover, and which to ignore.

The Post and Newsweek were electing to sit on the hot story of a presidential affair, presumeably so as not to hurt Clinton.

Well, when Drudge broke the story, then it was all over the media, and we all know what happened after that.

My point is, if the media had a story such as this about a Republican/conservative politician or president, they would have gone full speed ahead with the story as soon as they had it. Even before they had confirmed certain details. Clearly we now know that they were holding the story to benefit Clinton.

I always thought that too. They, including grandma Hillary, were starting with accusing her of being a troubled nut case and you know what those sorts of people do - they end up in a park...dead.

Threats? Very possible.Threats of death? Doubtful,IMO.There are many things you can threaten a young girl with,short of death,that will scare the bleep out of her.There are also many things you can *bribe* such a girl with that will get her full attention.

Does Monica Lewinsky still live in England? It seemed odd to me that she left America.

You can’t make this up.

And we’re better than North Korea .... how?

So Monica is up for a little Rimmer Action? Hmmm...but since we also know she was a damn dress messin’ no gargler, how does that square? (You would think she would have been up for the ‘full meal deal’ if she went stink tongue city on the Bent One....)
