Bill Clinton Paid Paula Jones $850,000 To Shut Up About Allegations Of Sexual Harassment - His Lawyer Was Not Raided
I've said it once and I'll say it again, Bill Clinton is a rapist. Bill Clinton is a rapist.
The original story came out on The Guardian in 1999. Bill Clinton was infact impeached, but his lawyer was not raided as President Trump's was. Once the Dems couldn't prove Russian collusion the Dem had to unlawfully dig up evidence on Trump's person life.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Paula Jones is awaiting the arrival of an $850,000 cheque from President Clinton, bringing an official end to the four-year saga spurred by her allegations of sexual harassment.
Clinton mailed the settlement cheque to Mrs. Jones on Tuesday, even as he braced for the heaviest fallout yet from her harassment suit - an impeachment trial in the Senate.
To finance the settlement, the president drew about $375,000 from his and Hillary Rodham Clinton's personal funds and got the rest of the money, about $475,000, from an insurance policy, a White House official told The Associated Press.
The official said the personal funds were drawn from the Clintons' blind trust, which was valued in their financial disclosure statement at between $1 million and about $5 million. None of the money was drawn from Clinton's legal defense fund, which raises money from private citizens to defray his legal bills, the official said.
How much of that money Mrs. Jones will see is still at issue. As the settlement was reached in November, Mrs. Jones faced an outstanding claim by Joseph Cammarata and Gilbert Davis, the two lawyers who quit her case last year and filed an $800,000 lien against any settlement in order to collect legal fees.
"I don't think it's been decided yet" how much Mrs. Jones will receive, said her friend and adviser, Susan Carpenter McMillan Tuesday night. "We did hear they are sending out the check. We hope to receive it soon."
Mrs. Jones' lawsuit brought to light the president's affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky and set in motion a criminal investigation that resulted in a historic House vote last month to impeach Clinton. Read more.
