I, Billy Ray Dale, wish to make the following statement:


  1. My name is Billy Ray Dale. I headed the White House Travel Office for 11 years (1982-1993), and worked in the White House Travel Office for almost 32 years.
  2. I have personal knowledge of the matters attested to herein.
  3. On May 19, 1993, my Travel Office colleagues and I were called into a 10:00 am meeting with David Watkins, then-Director for the White House Office of Administration. Mr. Watkins and his staffer arrived at 10:15 am and informed us that we were being terminated immediately. The meeting lasted no longer than 15 minutes.
  4. Based on all the evidence made available to me, Hillary Rodham Clinton had ordered and directed my and my Travel Office colleagues’ dismissal.
  5. Immediately following the meeting with Mr. Watkins, my Travel Office colleagues and I proceeded back to our office where Craig Livingstone, the then-head of the Office of Personnel Security, stood watch over us. Mr. Livingstone had with him check-out lists, which were already prepared specifically for each fired employee of the Travel Office, to help with the check-out procedure. Routinely, these check-out lists were not prepared in advance. After clearing out my desk of my personal belongings, I handed my White House keys to the storage room to Mr. Livingstone and told him I had personal effects in a storage room. Mr. Livingstone then escorted me to the storage room where I obtained my personal effects as he stood watch over me.
  6. Mr. Livingstone shortly thereafter placed me and some of my former fellow Travel Office colleagues on a "do not admit list" which was meant to bar our access to The White House complex.
  7. Mr. Livingstone knew that I did not require access to The White House. Therefore, the explanation that he and others have offered that my FBI background materials were requested in the mistaken belief that I required access to the White House is not accurate.
  8. My FBI materials were discovered among Travel Office records in the Clinton White House. This is a further indication to me that my FBI background materials were requested and used for an improper purpose.

I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct.
