Donald Trump:’Thank you, Kathleen. I have far more respect for women than Hillary Clinton does!’
Kathleen Willey, one of the women who famously accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault, and has said she suffered acts of intimidation to silence her, used a radio interview on Sunday to broadcast a message to other possible female victims of Bill Clinton.
I would just like to encourage any woman who has suffered at the hands of Bill Clinton to please try to find the courage and bravery to come forth. Because it’s okay now. Nobody can hurt you now. It’s as simple as that.
Nobody can touch you now. The word is out. You will be okay but you will be doing the right thing for all the right reasons and you will be helping your fellow sisters.
Willey also telegraphed a message of encouragement for Donald Trump, who helped to skyrocket the issue of Clinton’s sex accusers to front-page status when the GOP frontrunner complained about the former president’s “terrible record of women abuse.” Trump was responding to Hillary’s claim that the billionaire exhibited a “penchant for sexism.”
“If Hillary thinks she can unleash her husband, with his terrible record of women abuse, while playing the women’s card on me, she’s wrong!” tweeted Trump.
Willey chimed in: “Thank you very much, Mr. Trump, for asking the right question at the right time. And please keep asking more.”
When Klein petitioned Willey to list the questions that Trump should ask, she replied:
I think the next question he should ask Hillary is: “Mrs. Clinton, is it okay with you that your husband flies around in private jets with a convicted pedophile to a private island called ‘Orgy Island’ and be entertained by underage girls? The real word for that is pedophilia and human trafficking. Is that okay with you?”
Willey was referring to Clinton’s association with billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who served eighteen months in prison after being convicted of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution.
The Daily Mail reported in May–and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough predicted this past Friday–that Epstein could become an issue for Hillary Clinton’s campaign:
Epstein’s reemergence in public view – he was last photographed in February 2011 – will cause new headaches for Hillary Clinton’s message-challenged presidential campaign, and give her critics another opening to tar and feather her with scandal.
Her husband, former US president Bill Clinton, has been associated with Epstein in the past – even traveling with him 10 times aboard his private aircraft, dubbed the “Lolita Express.”
Some of those trips included stops at Epstein’s private Caribbean compound that later became known as “orgy island.”
Since Clinton announced her presidential campaign in April, Willey has spoken out in numerous exclusive interviews on Klein’s show. In her latest interview on Sunday, Willey explained why she is motivated to talk publicly.
My mission here is to educate. What I would like to be able to do is talk to college students who don’t know about what happened. Explain it to them. And make them understand what exactly happened back then. And then let them know all of the horrible, horrific, terrorizing details of what his wife did to his victims. That’s the story here. That’s the story… Instead of using that whole thing and feeling betrayed by it, she used it all as a political opportunity.
You try to explain to people the consequences of what happens to these women when Hillary Clinton goes on the attack. It’s another woman who claims to be a woman’s advocate attacking these women. I mean, this woman absolutely terrified me. And I don’t get afraid easily. I’m pretty independent.
Campaign of intimidation’
Willey detailed numerous instances of what she says was a campaign aimed at intimidating her into silence before she could give a deposition in the Paula Jones sexual harassment lawsuit that threatened Bill Clinton’s presidency.
But I mean, cats went missing. My wonderful German Shepherd–big girl, never left my side. Disappeared into clear air for three days. I mean, I was absolutely panicked trying to find her… and three days later she just reappears…
I came home and found a beautiful, one-year old healthy cat dead on the deck of my house, and the only way to get to my deck of my house is through my house. It has no access to the yard.
I mean, I found a man in the middle of the night at the door of my walkout basement. I opened my car door, my tires were all slashed. Somebody found the car, found me, and flattened three tires with a nail gun.
I opened up my car door one day and there was an unidentified, strange cell phone sitting right in the driver’s seat.
Willey has also said that she received threats against herself and against her children by name.
She recalled that late English author Christopher Hitchens filed an affidavit against his former longtime friend, Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal, detailing the contents of a lunch conversation in which Blumenthal indicated there was a campaign afoot to smear Willey.
Hitchens wrote about that lunch talk and his affidavit in an April 30, 1999 Vanity Fair article titled, “I’ll Never Eat Lunch in this Town Again.”
Hitchens related his conversation with Blumenthal and why he came to believe Willey’s allegations of intimidation.
He recounted that the meal took place right after Willey had gone public on 60 Minutes with her sexual assault accusation against Clinton.
