WATCH: Bill Clinton confronted with accusations of sexual misconduct and rape
The Mueller report concluded that Trump did not collude with the Russian government and it also failed to conclude that Trump obstructed justice.
That doesn’t mean there was nothing juicy in the report.
There was some interesting information about Bill Clinton.
From The Daily Mail:
The Mueller report contains redacted material that appears to reference a claim that the Russians intercepted communications of former President Bill Clinton having phone sex with Monica Lewinsky.
Sources told the Washington Examiner the surrounding material makes it clear what was redacted, and Ermarth, a CIA veteran, said he thinks he told Simes that Clinton’s call with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky was intercepted while the president was flying on Air Force One. He also pushed back on a key detail of what Mueller’s team wrote.
‘The line in the Mueller report that says any of this was based on intelligence information is the product either of faulty remembering by Dimitri or a flawed inference … or a hostile fabrication by the Mueller people,’ he told the publication.
Russia seems to have a high tolerance for things nobody else would ever want to know about, much less listen to. That tolerance may go beyond just mixing with low-info Facebook suckers and alt-right hate. Way beyond. Because it seems that the Mueller report has a claim that Russia recorded, and one assumes heard, recording or recordings of former President Bill Clinton engaging in phone sex with former intern Monica Lewinsky.
Blessedly, the information about this claim was redacted from the public release of the Mueller report (although inexplicably the pee tape mentions were not, more’s the pity.) The Washington Examiner showed on Tuesday what the redacted version looks like:
According to the report, Center for the National Interest President Dimitri Simes sent Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner a 2016 email with recommended talking points to counter Hillary Clinton’s Russia attacks. The email referenced “a well-documented story of highly questionable connections” between Bill Clinton and Russia.
At a meeting in New York, Simes told Kushner the details: Russia allegedly recorded President Clinton on the phone with Lewinsky, opening questions of foreign leverage over the ex-president-turned-potential first spouse.
“During the August 17 meeting, Simes provided Kushner the Clinton-related information that he had promised. Simes told Kushner that, [redacted],” the Mueller report says. “Simes claimed that he had received this information from former CIA and Reagan White House official Fritz Ermarth, who claimed to have learned it from U.S. intelligence sources, not from Russians.”
Well, there you go.
Bill Clinton just can’t seem to get away from that affair all these years later.
No on collusion. No on obstruction. Yes on Bill Clinton doing inappropriate things with interns.
