Former President Bill Clinton is reportedly facing a new round of charges of sexual assault from four women, who claim the incidents occurred after Clinton left the White House in 2001.
Author and journalist Ed Klein reports in the Daily Mail that attorneys have notified Clinton that they are preparing to file four separate lawsuits against him. Klein says a member of Clinton’s legal team has confirmed the existence of the allegations to him.
Clinton’s history of sexual misconduct both before and during his presidency returned to the spotlight in 2016 and again in 2017 during his wife Hillary’s failed presidential bid and more recently amid new allegations of sexual misconduct against a plethora of politicians, journalists, and Hollywood celebrities.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said last week that Clinton should have resigned the presidency in the wake of his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. It forms part of a broader re-evaluation of Clinton’s conduct by Democrats and left-wing media pundits.
Klein, who has written a number of sensationalist books including All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump, reports that the women were employed in “low-level positions” at an organization owned by playboy billionaire Ron Burkle. Clinton was hired by Burkle and flew around the world on Burkle’s private jet — which Klein says was known as “Air Fuck One.”
Klein says there is no evidence that Burkle knew anything about the alleged assaults by Clinton. He also reports that Hillary Clinton is “furious” with Bill for getting stuck in another scandal and offered to hire private detectives to dig up dirt on the women — but Clinton’s attorneys said no.
Sources tell Klein that if they are not given substantial payouts for their silence, the accusers are prepared to hold a joint press conference to air their stories.
