15 Scandalous Facts about Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton is the 42nd President of the United States and sat in office from 1993 to 2001. He will probably go down in history as one of the most infamous presidents to occupy the White House. But before becoming a president, Clinton was previously the Governor of Arkansas from 1979 to 1981 and 1983 to 1992, and the Arkansas Attorney General from 1977 to 1979. The world knew about his affair with Monica Lewinsky but that definitely wasn’t an isolated incident. No sir, it wasn’t. He also faced numerous scandals such as bribery, corruption, and adultery to name a few or some that we know of. There are 15 more scandalous facts that you probably didn’t know about one of America’s least favorite president. Even more scandalous than what the media broadcasts. Read on to find out more about Bill’s dirty little secrets.

15. Paula Jones Scandalpaula-jones

Former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones and probably Clinton’s mot famous accuser filed a harassment suit against U.S. President Bill Clinton on May 6, 1994. The case was a well-known decision by the United States Supreme Court. The U.S. Supreme Court presided over that a sitting President of the United States of America has no immunity from civil law legal proceedings for acts that he may have done before the office.

14. LGBTLGBT

From 1994 to 2011, there was a notorious regulation that banned the open LGBT individuals from serving the military. This regulation was initiated by the Clinton administration as part of a compromise with military officials. But Bill Clinton had previously campaigned on the promise to allow all citizens to serve in the military regardless of gender orientation.

13. Birds of the Same Feathers

epsteinBill Clinton should definitely choose his friends wisely. There were travel logs and other pieces of evidence point that Clinton had a connection with now convicted nympho and pedo and unsurprisingly, a known human trafficker. Bill’s friends are a giveaway of his not so secret life. Also, a woman named Virginia Roberts in the photo above was abducted by Epstein and was forced to join his harem of minors. She claimed to have seen Clinton’s and Epstein’s Virgin Island Compound, a known den of immoral acts.

12. Mondale Discoveryeleanor mondale

Bill Clinton juggled at least three affairs during his tenure in the White House, according to a secret service officer. Now we know what he was busy about. In addition to Monica Lewinsky, Clinton entertained Vice President Walter Mondale’s daughter, Eleanor Mondale, a TV journalist at that time and an unnamed receptionist. The officer shared, “I stood guard, a pistol at my hip, outside the Oval Office, the last barrier before anyone saw… Eleanor Mondale and Monica Lewinsky could not satiate the president’s horndog desires.”

11. Bizarre Confessionsmtv

He famously once admitted that he tried Marijuana in college but reassured the people that he didn’t inhale. Yeah right! And as if people were surprised by that confession. Another of his confession on MTV, he said that he preferred wearing briefs to boxer shorts. Like we care and who would want to hear that kind of information from him anyway? And another unsurprising confession is that he admitted to having at least one affair behind Hillary’s back. That’s not something new, isn’t it?

10. Juanita Broaddrick

juanita broaddrick

Juanita Broaddrick is a former nursing home administrator from Arkansas. She stated that 1999 Bill Clinton abused her two decades earlier in April 1978 in a tell-all interview on Dateline NBC. She was 35 then and Hillary pressured her to keep silent. She filed a lawsuit in the summer of 1999 to acquire documents she believed the White House had collected on her. Around the same time, she was also audited by the IRS and was forced to drop the charges after she could no longer afford to pay the legal expenses. Clinton’s attorney, David Kendall, denied the accusations on his client’s behalf but Clinton refused to comment further on the issue.

9. Presidential Impeachmentimpeachment

The impeachment of Bill Clinton was initiated by the House of Representatives on two charges, perjury and obstruction of justice. Among the many evil things he did, these two were his charges. Are they serious? Clinton wasn’t impeached for the affair itself but instead was charged with perjury after he was proved to have lied under oath. Then on December 9, 1998, he became the second president to be impeached after Andrew Johnson in 1867.

8. Extra-Marital Engagementsmonica lewinsky

The whole world knows and still remembers the Monica Lewinsky affair just like it happened yesterday. But were pretty sure that she wasn’t just the one. There was Paula Jones, an Arkansas state employee who accused the ex-president of harassment. There was also Gennifer Flowers, an adult star who claimed she and Clinton had a relationship for several years. That was just the tip of the iceberg because many other women came forward in the years following Clinton’s impeachment. Bill has been one bad president.

7. Brotherly Benefitsroger clinton

Being the half-brother of a president sure has it benefits, that is if you’re Clinton’s half-brother. Yes, Bill Clinton granted his half-brother, Roger Clinton Jr., a presidential pardon who was serving time in prison for cocaine possession. And he’s most likely using it too. In 1985, Roger Clinton spent a year inside the cells after being convicted. Fortunately for him and unfortunately for us, Bill pardoned his half-brother so that his criminal record will be completely erased. That’s what you call abuse of power.

6. Earning Millions

millions in speaking engagement

Since the Clintons left the White House in 2001 and being buried in legal debt, they have made millions through their speaking engagements. Most especially towards large financial firms and other special interest groups. After all the scandals that they’ve been through who would have thought that people still believe them? But there are some awake who raise questions such as conflicts of interest and “something in exchange for something”. Just like when Hillary got appointed to the State Department, Bill began doubling and even tripling what he had been charging in his post-White House years. When will they ever stop?

5. Clinton Foundation

After the Clintons left the White House, the Clinton Foundation became Bill’s primary source of income, I mean primary vehicle for just about everything. Specifically for its ability to amass wealth. Critics dispute that the foundation is too diffuse to do much good. Well, considering that it’s the Clinton’s we can’t argue with that. Money raised has not always reached its intended target (or does it?) and conflicts of interest often come up. The foundation has also made mistakes with regards to its tax returns. Why are we not surprised?

4. Selling Campaign Contributionsron brown

Back in 1998, Nolanda Hill, an associate of Secretary of Commerce, Ron Brown witnessed that the seats on U.S. federal planes on international trade missions were being sold as campaign contributions. Soon both Secretary Brown and the Clintons were compromised. No secret stays hidden. But during a trade mission to Croatia, Brown died when his government plane mysteriously crashed to the mountainsides. Neither Brown nor the Clintons were charged.

3. Blumenthal

Sidney Blumenthal is s journalist, activist, writer, and former political aide. He is a former aide to President Bill Clinton and a long-time confidant to Hillary Clinton. He was a top aide in the Bill Clinton administration who directed messaging at the height of the Lewinsky scandal. He was also Hillary Clinton’s adviser during her 2008 presidential campaign. When Hillary became Secretay of State she sought to hire Blumenthal’s counsel. Although her request was refused by the Obama administration, which was apparently still sensitive to Blumenthal’s role in the attacks on Obama. Nevertheless, Clinton still sought out Blumenthal’s counsel informally and cut him a check from the Clinton Foundation. Blumenthal was seemingly behind the idea that the Benghazi attacks were spontaneous, calling into question the Clintons’ judgment.

2. Record-Breakertravelgate

He may hold the record for the most libidinous president ever but we’re not referring to that. Although that’s a fact. He holds another record for the first sitting president to testify before a grand jury investigating his own conduct after the Paula Jones scandal, another former Arkansas state employee sued him for harassment. The Paula Jones case hastened Clinton’s impeachment and resolution by the Senate on February 12, 1999.

1. Travelgate Controversybill clinton

It’s not only Bill that’s involved in scandals and controversy. In 1993, soon after Bill became president, first lady Hillary Clinton was said to have engineered the firing of seven employees of the White House travel office. Then it was later discovered that a travel firm with connections to the Clintons was hired to replace the fired employees. Several investigations acquitted Bill but Hillary was found to have lied to the investigators. They’re a match made in heaven, don’t you think?

Now we all know some of Bill’s hidden secrets. But despite everything he did, he’s still a free man and we’re not surprised with that. Justice is in the hands of these people. Well Bill, just remember what goes around, comes around so you better watch your back. No amount of security intelligence can protect you from that. How about Hillary? Well, she’s an accessory to all her husband’s shenanigans and karma will come biting them on the back when they least expect it.
