Bill Clinton Accused Of Sexual Assault By Four Women
Bill Clinton is in trouble — again. The 71-year-old former president is facing new sexual assault charges from four women, according to a Democratic Party official who served in both the Clinton and Obama administrations.
The attorneys for the women have already notified Clinton that they are separately preparing to file lawsuits against him and asked him for a lump sum for their clients' silence.
If the negation fails, the four women would go ahead and reveal their sexual assault accusations at a press conference.
A member of Clinton's legal team, speaking on the condition of anonymity, has confirmed about the new allegations, which stem from the early 2000s, after Clinton left the White House in 2001.
Clinton was then working for the playboy billionaire Ron Burkle, the co-founder and managing partner of The Yucaipa Companies. Clinton helped Yucaipa generate business and travelled around the world with a bunch of young women on Burkle's private jet, nicknamed “Air F**k One”.
The four unidentified women have accused the former president of sexual assault when they used to work in low-level positions at the Burkle organization.
It’s still not clear if Burkle knew anything about these alleged assaults.
The new charges put Hillary Clinton into an uncomfortable position, as the former Democratic presidential candidate is continuously lashing out at Donald Trump over sexual misconduct claims.
At a recent event honoring her husband, Hillary said that President Trump has “disgraced the office” because several women have accused him of sexual harassment.
The moralizing, however, didn’t sit well with everyone.
“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski blasted Hillary Clinton on Friday for lashing out at Donald Trump but remaining quiet for her husband Bill, a known alleged sexual offender.
“She needs to stop talking about this topic unless Bill Clinton wants to come forward and apologize for being a sexual harasser, for settling [lawsuits] with women, for what happened with Monica,” MSNBC presenter explained.
“If you're not going to apologize and it's clear you've done something wrong, please, please, you the politician and your wife the politician need to not talk about these issues,” she declared.
Bill Clinton has a long history of sexual misconduct. In the late 1990s, he paid an out-of-court settlement of $850,000 over a sexual harassment lawsuit by Paula Jones, a former Arkansas state employee. The case led to Clinton's impeachment and his subsequent acquittal in 1999. He was only the second US President to be impeached in history.
