NEWSWEEK KILLS STORY ON WHITE HOUSE INTERN
Drudge Report ^ | 01/17/98 | Matt Drudge

BLOCKBUSTER REPORT: 23-YEAR OLD, FORMER WHITE HOUSE INTERN, SEX RELATIONSHIP WITH PRESIDENT

**World Exclusive** **Must Credit the DRUDGE REPORT**

At the last minute, at 6 p.m. on Saturday evening, NEWSWEEK magazine killed a story that was destined to shake official Washington to its foundation: A White House intern carried on a sexual affair with the President of the United States!

The DRUDGE REPORT has learned that reporter Michael Isikoff developed the story of his career, only to have it spiked by top NEWSWEEK suits hours before publication. A young woman, 23, sexually involved with the love of her life, the President of the United States, since she was a 21-year-old intern at the White House. She was a frequent visitor to a small study just off the Oval Office where she claims to have indulged the president's sexual preference. Reports of the relationship spread in White House quarters and she was moved to a job at the Pentagon, where she worked until last month.

The young intern wrote long love letters to President Clinton, which she delivered through a delivery service. She was a frequent visitor at the White House after midnight, where she checked in the WAVE logs as visiting a secretary named Betty Curry, 57.

The DRUDGE REPORT has learned that tapes of intimate phone conversations exist.

The relationship between the president and the young woman become strained when the president believed that the young woman was bragging about the affair to others.

NEWSWEEK and Isikoff were planning to name the woman. Word of the story's impeding release caused blind chaos in media circles; TIME magazine spent Saturday scrambling for its own version of the story, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned. The NEW YORK POST on Sunday was set to front the young intern's affair, but was forced to fall back on the dated ABC NEWS Kathleen Willey break.

The story was set to break just hours after President Clinton testified in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case.

Ironically, several years ago, it was Isikoff that found himself in a shouting match with editors who were refusing to publish even a portion of his meticulously researched investigative report that was to break Paula Jones. Isikoff worked for the WASHINGTON POST at the time, and left shortly after the incident to build them for the paper's sister magazine, NEWSWEEK.

Michael Isikoff was not available for comment late Saturday. NEWSWEEK was on voice mail.

The White House was busy checking the DRUDGE REPORT for details.

If it happened again, it would be a young male intern in an affair with the resident.
And the press would say how beautiful it was.

Betty Curry.... Hmmm... Where have I heard that name before...

“Betty Currie (born Betty Grace Williams; November 10, 1939) is the former personal secretary for Bill Clinton (during his tenure as President of the United States). She became well known as a figure in the Lewinsky scandal for her alleged handling of gifts given to Monica Lewinsky by President Clinton.

Currie has retired and lives in St. Mary’s County, Maryland with her husband. She has a grown daughter. Socks, Chelsea Clinton’s White House cat, lived with her from the time she left the White House[13] until Socks was euthanized after a long battle with cancer in February 2009.[14]

She was appointed to the Alcohol Beverage Board of St. Mary’s County Maryland, serving at her first meeting on Thursday April 10, 2008.[15]

In December 2008 Currie once again returned to Washington, answering phones for the co-chairman of President-elect Barack Obama’s transition, John Podesta. She did not to return to the White House after President Obama’s inauguration.[4]”

I did too. With that in mind, when I read this part:

...was a frequent visitor to a small study just off the Oval Office where she claims to have indulged the president's sexual preference.

My first thought was: Strap-on?

Drudge clearly has a source in the Secret Service.
Bubba’s and Obummer’s inner circle is way too strong to breach.

I must credit Bill Clinton for helping me find FreeRepublic. I was clicking on links on Drudge's site during the scandal and came across this little website. Couldn't believe some of the stuff posted here (Clinton Body Count,...). Been hooked ever since.

Unnngh.

Ya got that right, esp. since Chelsea is Webb Hubbell's kid, anyway.

Of course, Bill might be Daddy to a few that are unacknowledged.

Øbama would be caught with a woman

Yeah that was my 1st reaction, too, esp after reading "she claims to have indulged the president's sexual preference".

I wondered if they dressed her up like a boy and she escorted him to a bathhouse.

"Michael Isikoff was not available for comment late Saturday."

Newsweek's spiking the story got Isikoff the nickname of "Spike." Can somebody jog my memory? Was it Lucianne Goldberg who gave him that nickname?
