RAGE AT AUTHOR AFTER CLAIM: BILL RAPED HILLARY, CONCEIVED CHELSEA
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton turned furious and considered legal action after learning bestselling author Ed Klein would allege in a new book: Bill Clinton raped her -- resulting in the conception of daughter Chelsea Clinton!
"[Author] Klein is going to rot in hell for this," a well-placed source close to Hillary said over the weekend.
The explosive charge comes in THE TRUTH ABOUT HILLARY: WHAT SHE KNEW, WHEN SHE KNEW IT, AND HOW FAR SHE'LL GO TO BECOME PRESIDENT -- set for release next week.
[The book ranked #198 on AMAZON.COM's hourly sale chart late Sunday.]
"I'm going back to my cottage to rape my wife," Klein quotes Bill Clinton as saying during a Bermuda getaway in 1979.
In the morning, the Clintons' room "looked like World War III. There are pillows and busted-up furniture all over the place," an unnamed source tells Klein.
Klein source claims Bill later learned Hillary was pregnant reading about it in the ARKANSAS GAZETTE.
"The fact that his wife didn't tell him that she was pregnant before she told a reporter doesn't seem to phase him one bit, because he says, 'Do you know what night that happened?"
"'No,' I say. 'When?"
"'It was Bermuda,' he says, 'And you were there!'"
The rape claim is just the beginning of Klein's alleged revelations, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal.
TRUTH ABOUT HILLARY marks the most aggressive attempt yet to investigate Hillary.
The former first lady turned senator fumed as a close aide offered details of the book, an insider explains.
"Mrs. Clinton told me she would considering suing him for outright libel," the top Hillary source explains. "This is the right wing attack machine on crack!"
But Hillary and her camp may have a hard time typecasting Ed Klein as a Clinton-crazed right-winger. Klein is the former foreign editor of NEWSWEEK and former editor in chief of the NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE. He is a frequent contributor to VANITY FAIR and PARADE.
He is also the author of THE KENNEDY CURSE; FAREWELL, JACKIE; and several other NEW YORK TIMES bestsellers.
VANITY FAIR has already commissioned an excerpt of the embargoed Hillary book, exploring Hillary's senate runs.
You can always tell when authors and journalists are hitting too close to home with Shrillary. She doesn't have much of a poker face. When she's mad, everyone knows it.
The author better hope this woman never gets into the presidency. Remember what she did to the women who Bill propositioned? Kathryn Willey's dead cat, etc.
This guy better watch his back.
With nothing to hide why would she order her sycophants, toadies, and lackies to not cooperate.
LOL I don't know what to make of this. I almost thought it was some sort of tabloid paper for a minute.
we did done dis last night.
Were there any thrown lamps at Arkansas State troopers?
This is just another calculated attempt to make "poor Hillary" the victim again of the "vast right wing conspiracy". the media is just following their script.
I don't think this one is true, unless Web Hubbell was in on this as well (ungh...)
I might have to buy this one....unbelievable
I find this claim very difficult to believe. Ed Klein is pretty reliable, but I think he spices up his books. He's written extensively about Jackie Kennedy Onassis, most of it accurate, some of it preposterous.
Come on guys, I dislike Clinton as much as anybody around here, but if this is supposed to be "evidence" of anything more than a drunken boast by an admittedly boorish fellow, it falls pretty far short of credible. Anybody who takes this too seriously runs the risk of looking like a Republican version of Howard Dean.
Sounds like Bill got pregnant with Chelsea by the title! LOL
Hillary raped by Bill? Do you realize what that means? She was a victim. So much for the up coming elections, she wins!
I agree, the only point to this is to make Hillary look like a victim.
"You can always tell when authors and journalists are hitting too close to home with Shrillary."
Think about this. I know it's hard, but imagine that Hillary is a human being. If this were someone in your family, even if the charges were true, the principles had dealt with it and made their peace with it. I think this is going too far. True or false, it's just unneeded. It harms a family, (dysfunctional as it may be), and helps no one.
This is why we can only get dolts and crooks for politicians in this country. Who else would put up with that kind of crap?
Yikes! I wish they would not put different words in the title because when I do a search with the whole title it comes up blank and not posted. Sorry about that.
She's probably operating on the theory that if you're married to the rapist, it's not rape. It's her own version of "depends what the definition of 'is' is."
