Excerpt From Kathleen Willey's Interview with 60 Minutes

BRADLEY: But Kathleen Willey's life was about to fall apart. Her husband, a lawyer, was in deep trouble.
He was under investigation for embezzling money from his clients, and the Willey family's finances were in a shambles. Kathleen Willey told her husband she needed to do something about it, and that she was going to see her "good friend," President Clinton.
WILLEY: And I told him that I was going to go to Washington and ask the president for a full-time paying job.
BRADLEY: And -- and you felt comfortable doing that?
WILLEY: Yeah. Absolutely.
BRADLEY: What you are about to hear is what Kathleen Willey says happened behind closed doors that day, between her and the President of the United States, inside the Oval office.
So, let me ask you to take me through it, step by step, what happened when you went into the Oval office?
WILLEY: I went in, and the president was at his desk, and I sat down in the chair across from him, and I obviously looked very distraught.
He asked me what was wrong. I told him I had a really serious problem and that I needed his help. And, he said, "Would you like a cup of coffee?" And I said, "Yes, I would."
So he -- he walked to another -- a door on the other side of the Oval office, which led into a hallway, into his small galley kitchen, and there was a -- a steward in there, I remember.
And the president took a -- a coffee cup down out of the pantry, and -- a Starbucks coffee cup, I remember -- and, he poured me a cup of coffee, poured himself a cup of coffee, and we started walking back down the hall towards the Oval office and he said, "why don't you come in here into my study? We can talk better in here."
And, I stood and leaned -- I was leaning against the door jam. He was in the office.
We were standing facing each other, and I told him what had happened. I -- I didn't give him all the details. I just told him that my husband was in financial difficulty, and that things were at a crisis point, and that my volunteer -- volunteer days were over, that -- that I needed a -- a regular paying job, and could he help me?
BRADLEY: And, did he seem sympathetic? Did he say...
BRADLEY: ... he could help you?
WILLEY: Yeah, well, he did seem sympathetic.
He -- he -- he was listening. I -- I had the feeling that he was somehow distracted when I was talking to him, but -- but he was not really -- really listening, but I know that he did. I know he knows how distraught I was and how upset I was, because I -- I was -- I was very worried. I was worried about my husband, and -- and -- and what as going to happen.
BRADLEY: And what happened next?
WILLEY: Well, he -- he said he would do everything that he could to -- to -- to help, and I turned around and -- out of the -- out of the office, and he followed me to -- I thought he was going to open the door to the -- to the Oval office, and right as we got to the door, he stopped and he gave me a big hug and said that he was very sorry that this was happening to me.
And -- I had -- had no problem with that, because when I saw -- every time I saw him, he would hug me. He use -- just does that, is like that.
And, I remember I had -- still had this coffee cup in my hand, and it was kind of in between us, and I didn't want it to spill on him or me, and -- and it just was this -- it was just very strange. And he -- he took the coffee cup out of my hand and he put it on a bookshelf, and -- and -- he -- this hug lasted a little longer than I thought necessary, but at the same time -- I mean, I was not concerned about it. And then he -- then he -- and then he kissed me on -- on my mouth, and -- and pulled me closer to him. And -- I remember thinking -- I just remember thinking, "what in the world is he doing?" I -- it -- I just thought, "what is he doing?" And, I -- I pushed back away from him, and -- he -- he -- he -- he -- he's a big man.
And he -- he had his arms -- they were tight around me, and he -- he -- he touched me.
BRADLEY: Touched you how?
WILLEY: Well, he -- he -- he touched my breasts with his hand, and, I -- I -- I -- I was -- I -- I was just startled.
I was -- I was just...
BRADLEY: This -- this wasn't an accidental grazing touch?
And -- then he -- whispered -- he -- he -- said in -- in my ears that, "I -- I've wanted to do this ever since I laid eyes on you." And -- I remember -- I remember saying to him, "aren't you afraid that somebody's going to walk in here?" The -- and, he said -- he said, "no. No, I'm -- no, I'm not." And -- and then -- and -- and then he took my hand, and he -- and he put it on him. And, that's when I pushed away from him and -- and decided it was time to get out of there.
BRADLEY: When you say he took your hand...
WILLEY: Right.
BRADLEY: ... and put it on him...
WILLEY: Hum-hum.
BRADLEY: Where on him?
WILLEY: On -- on his genitals.
BRADLEY: Was he a -- aroused?
BRADLEY: He was.
BRADLEY: What were you thinking?
WILLEY: Well, I -- I was -- there was -- I -- there were all kinds of things going through my mind.
I -- I think as -- when I think back on it, it was kind of like I was watching it in slow motion, and -- and thinking surely this is not happening. And, at the same time, I -- I wanted to -- I thought, "well, maybe I ought to just give him a good slap across the face." And then I thought, "well, I don't think you can slap the President of the United States like that." And -- and I just decided it was just time to get out of there.
BRADLEY: Did you say anything to him, or was there anything about your behavior that invited an advance?
WILLEY: I -- I -- I have gone over this so many times, so very many times, because I think that your natural instinct is to wonder, "Did I bring this on? Did I send a -- a -- the wrong signal?" The only signals that I was sending that day, was that I was very upset, very distraught, and I needed to help my husband.
BRADLEY: Did you feel intimidated?
WILLEY: I didn't feel intimidated. I just felt overpowered.
BRADLEY: Did you ever say, "stop. No. Get away from me?"
WILLEY: I just -- I -- I pushed him away. I pushed him away, and -- and I said, "I think I -- I'd better go."
BRADLEY: And what did he say?
WILLEY: He -- he -- he kept looking at his watch, 'cause he told me that he had a meeting, and he said -- he said -- that he could -- he said they could wait. And I said, "Well..." I said, "well, I'm leaving."
BRADLEY: When you walked out of there, what -- what were you thinking?
WILLEY: I just could not believe that that had happened in that office. I -- I just could not believe -- the recklessness of that act.
[At this point, we will skip ahead to a portion of this interview in which Ed Bradley asks Ms. Willey if she has ever felt pressured by the White House...]
BRADLEY: Have you ever been pressured?
BRADLEY: How? Tell me about it.
WILLEY: I felt pressured by Mr. Bennett.
BRADLEY: The president's attorney?
WILLEY: Yes. We -- we were together at some point before our court hearing, and he mentioned that he had just left -- he had just been at the White House, and -- and the -- the president asked for me and told him just -- that he just thought the world of me. And, he said, "now, this -- this was not sexual harassment, was it?" And, I didn't answer him.
And he said, "well -- and it wasn't -- not -- it wasn't -- it -- it wasn't unwelcome, was it?" And I said to him, "it was unwelcome and unexpected."
BRADLEY: Did you feel intimidated by Bennett?
WILLEY: I -- I felt pressured. Especially when he threw in the -- the business about, "well, the president just feel -- thinks the world of you," and it -- it -- I found that a little laughable, though.
WILLEY: Well, because if the president thought the world of me, why did he do what he did?

Kathleen Willey: Clintons stole my manuscript

Kathleen Willey, the woman who says Bill Clinton groped her in the Oval Office, claims she was the target of an unusual house burglary over the weekend that nabbed a manuscript for her upcoming book, which promises explosive revelations that could damage Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. Willey told WND little else was taken from her rural Virginia home as she slept alone upstairs – electronics and jewelry were left behind – and she believes the Clintons were behind it.
The break-in, she said, reminded her of the wide reported incident 10 years ago in which she claimed she was threatened near the same Richmond-area home by a stranger just two days in a previous place she was to testify in countervail to President Clinton in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case. The theft of the manuscript early Saturday morning was suspicious, she told WND, coming only days after the first mainstream media mention of her upcoming book, which is expected to take in accusations of campaign finance violations and new revelations about harassment and threats by the Clintons and their associates. "Here we go again; it's the same thing that happened before," Willey told WND. "They want you to know they were there. And they got what they wanted.
They pretty much managed to terrorise me again. It scared me to death. It's an awful feeling to know you're sound asleep upstairs and someone is downstairs."
The book, "Target: Caught in the Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton" by World Ahead Publishing, WND Books' partner, is due for set free in November. Willey said the stolen manuscript was not the book's final copy. Among its revelations is Willey's identification of the person who threatened her just prior to her testimony off President Clinton – a man who turned out to be linked to the Clintons. Willey believes the break-in and theft were prompted by teasers of the book's contents published last week in U.S. News and World Report's "Washington Whispers" column and the New York Daily News. Willey said she is writing the book for of persistent misunderstanding about what happened 10 years ago.
"There is so much misinformation out there, and I had been so badly maligned in the press," she said. "I had the opportunity to set the take down straight. "And frankly," she added, "Hillary Clinton is running for president, and it's a story a lot of people should hear." Willey points out her story was deemed credible by the FBI, Independent Counsel Ken Starr and CBS "60 Minutes" producers who allowed her to enumerate it in front of 29 million viewers. Longtime Clinton lawyer David Kendall was not available for immediate response to Willey's new claims, and Sen. Clinton's presidential campaign has not responded. Anne Reynolds, crime analyst for the Powhatan County Sheriff's Department, told WND she could only confirm, due to department restrictions, that there was a break-in and entry reported Saturday in the vicinity of Willey's address and that an officer responded and turned the case over to the criminal investigations department. Willey said she has spoken with an investigator.

Author blames Clintons for manuscript theft.

On Wikipedia

Kathleen Willey was a white House volunteer aide who, on March 15, 1998, supposed on the TV news program 60 Minutes that Bill Clinton had sexually assaulted her over four years earlier, on November 29, 1993, during his primitive term as U.S. President. agreeably to to Willey, during a meeting in the sexual organs study off the Oval Office, Clinton had embraced her tightly, kissed her on the mouth, fondled her breast and then set her hand on his penis. Clinton denied assaulting Willey. This event occurred on the same day that Willey's husband attached suicide. In February 1999, Linda Tripp told Larry King on his across the country broadcast show that Kathleen Willey is "an candid person" who was "effective the truth" about her intimate assault at Bill Clinton's hands. [1]. In a November 7, 2007 interview with radio commentator, Sean Hannity, Willey recounts an event to what her family cat was missing. The day before she testified in the Linda Tripp case, a inexplicable man approached her, let her know her cat was dead, and threatened her children with the same. Willey claims that on Labor Day weekend 2007, her house was burglarized, with the only thing stealthy being a written document of her forthcoming book Target: Caught in the Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton. (Willey claims a purse was ab initio taken, but that she found it in the woods nearby, with the cash but not credit cards or anything else stolen. She more distant claims that her laptop computer had been tampered with, but not taken). Willey specified that she believes individuals with ties to the Clintons are amenable for the break-in, due to its similarity to early examples of harassment in the past, and filed a police report, but to date no action has been interpreted on that report. [2] Ms. Willey has filed complaint, and been investigated by the federated Bureau of Investigation. She has been found to have worthy of belief claims of assault. Because of civic pressure from the Department of Justice, her case was not pursued.

Kathleen Willey Wrote a Book

So, just at a random time, Kathleen Willey has written a book. It doesn’t have anything to do with the upcoming election, even though she accuses the Clintons of murdering her husband.
