Former President Bill Clinton is facing brand new allegations of sexual assault after he left office from four women, according to the Daily Mail.
The new accusations against Clinton “whose past is littered with charges of sexual misconduct — stem from the period after he left the White House in 2001, say the sources,” according to Ed Klein for the Daily Mail. The women have filed separate lawsuits against Clinton seeking “substantial payouts” for their silence.
According to Klein, Clinton may be wise to pay up.
If they fail, according to sources in Clinton’s inner circle, the four women are said to be ready to air their accusations of sexual assault at a press conference, making Clinton the latest — and most famous — figure in a long list of men from Harvey Weinstein to Kevin Spacey who have recently been accused of sexual assault.
The new incidents go back more than 10 years to the early 2000s, while Clinton was working for billionaire investor Rob Burkle. Clinton helped Burkle find new business and flew around the word with young women in Burke’s private jet, creepily dubbed “Air F**k One.”
Clinton faced multiple allegations of sexual assault during his presidency, and lied about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky, a young intern at the time.
“Bill is distraught at the thought of having to testify and defend himself against sex charges again,” said a Democratic Party official who is familiar with the case, according to the Mail. “He hopes his legal team can somehow stop the women from filing charges and drag him through the mud.”
The same source revealed that Hillary Clinton is “furious” over the new allegations.
