(Washington, DC) Billy Ray Dale issued the following statement in response to the report by the Office of Independent Counsel:
    I am disappointed by Robert Ray’s decision to not prosecute Hillary Clinton and others in the Travelgate affair. Bill and Hillary Clinton tried to have me thrown in jail to cover up their corrupt efforts to give the Travel Office’s business to their friends. Unsurprisingly, a jury found me innocent of all of Hillary Clinton’s charges in record time. In fact, Bill Clinton himself signed legislation which paid my legal bills. Everyone, especially Robert Ray, knows Hillary Clinton lied under oath about her key role in firing me and my colleagues. It is disappointing that the Office of Independent Counsel, which is charged with enforcing the law, would not prosecute her simply because of a fear of what a Washington, DC jury might do. Of course, the Clinton Justice Department prosecuted me with no evidence of any wrongdoing on my part. Despite my 38 years of government service, Bill and Hillary Clinton tried to destroy my good name. They put my wife and me through pure hell. I, along with my lawyers at Judicial Watch, will continue to explore my legal options in holding them accountable.
