Paula Jones Witness Prepared to Testify in Senate Trial

Browning Can Testify to Clinton Perjury, Threats, and Obstruction of Justice

A story in The Washington Post recently reported the Clinton White House will "adamantly" oppose allowing Dolly Kyle Browning, who had a 30 year relationship with Bill Clinton, to testify in the Senate trial. Ms. Browning was a witness in the Paula Jones civil lawsuit and has filed a RICO suit against Mr. Clinton and others alleging a series of threats and other actions designed to prevent Ms. Browning from telling the truth about her relationship with Clinton and from publishing her fictionalized account of her life story, Purposes of the Heart. Ms. Browning is represented by Judicial Watch in this lawsuit.

Ms. Browning was first threatened in 1992 by an agent of Bill Clinton, who told her that "if you cooperate with the media, we will destroy you." In 1994 (during their high school reunion in Hot Springs, Arkansas), Ms. Browning and Mr. Clinton had a discussion about this threat (among other things) and Mr. Clinton disingenuously apologized to her.

Despite threats and the discouragement of Bill Clinton and his agents, Ms. Browning testified when subpoenaed in the Paula Jones case and testified truthfully. During his deposition in the Jones case, Mr. Clinton followed through on earlier threats and lied under oath about her. He falsely testified that he did not have a sexual relationship with Ms. Browning and tried to destroy her credibility by defaming her. Further compounding his crimes, Mr. Clinton introduced his own manufactured and fraudulent handwritten notes which, among other falsehoods, contained a flagrantly false account of the 1994 high school reunion. The House Judiciary Committee's impeachment staffers investigated Ms. Browning's testimony and obtained affidavits verifying key parts of Ms. Browning's account - thereby adding additional proof of presidential perjury and obstruction of justice. Hyde's chief investigator David Schippers had wanted her to testify during the House impeachment proceedings.

"It is easy to see why President Clinton is 'adamantly' opposed to having Ms. Browning testify in the Senate trial. Ms. Browning can give compelling testimony on his perjury, on his threats, and on his obstruction of justice," stated Larry Klayman, Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel. "The Senate, if it is interested in the truth, will want to give Ms. Browning 'her day in court.'"
