Scandalmongerer Matt Drudge has supposedly excerpted on his website a passage lifted from writer Ed Klein’s upcoming mudslinger: THE TRUTH ABOUT HILLARY: WHAT SHE KNEW, WHEN SHE KNEW IT, AND HOW FAR SHE’LL GO TO BECOME PRESIDENT, set for release next week.
Klein’s book allegedly claims that, in 1972, President Bill Clinton raped Hillary in the Bahamas, resulting in the conception of Chelsea. Naturally, the books makes extensive use of “unnamed sources.” Additional “explosive charges” are forthcoming, Drudge promises. Please note that Bill Clinton actually informed said unnamed friend of his intent to rape his wife before doing so. :rolleyes: (That should be rolleyes to the 40th power.)
Given the truly explosive, sensationalistic, potentially libelous charges Klein levels–and his purportedly serious journalistic background–how can he expect anyone to take his allegations seriously, especially given his use of unnamed sources? Or, does “serious” even enter the equation? How did the publisher agree to this? Weak libel/defamation laws?
I’m not sure this will generate “great debate,” but I do want to keep this out of the Pit.
“I’m going back to my cottage to rape my wife,” Klein quotes Bill Clinton as saying during a Bermuda getaway in 1979.
In the morning, the Clintons’ room “looked like World War III. There are pillows and busted-up furniture all over the place,” an unnamed source tells Klein.
Klein source claims Bill later learned Hillary was pregnant reading about it in the ARKANSAS GAZETTE.
“The fact that his wife didn’t tell him that she was pregnant before she told a reporter doesn’t seem to phase him one bit, because he says, 'Do you know what night that happened?”
“‘No,’ I say. 'When?”
“‘It was Bermuda,’ he says, ‘And you were there!’”
