The most scandalous President in the history of the United States, may have some more of his own worries and may just be critisizing President Bush as yet another way to take the focus away from his misgivings.
Former FBI Director Louis Freeh says publicly for the first time that his relationship with President Bill Clinton – the man who appointed him – was a terrible one because Clinton’s scandals made him a constant target of FBI investigations.
In a startling revelation, Freeh says the former president let down the American people and the families of victims of the Khobar Towers terror attack in Saudi Arabia. After promising to bring to justice those responsible for the bombing that killed 19 and injured hundreds, Freeh says Clinton refused to personally ask Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah to allow the FBI to question bombing suspects the kingdom had in custody – the only way the bureau could secure the interviews, according to Freeh. Freeh writes in the book, “Bill Clinton raised the subject only to tell the crown prince that he understood the Saudis’ reluctance to cooperate and then he hit Abdullah up for a contribution to the Clinton Presidential Library.” Says Freeh, “That’s a fact that I am reporting.”
If in fact a sitting President was hitting up foreign leaders for money, this would be yet another Criminal scandal for the deviant former President who could face a criminal investigation if we have an Attorney General with any gonads.
Freeh says he was determined to stay on as FBI director until President Clinton left office so that Clinton could not appoint his successor. “I was concerned about who he would put in there as FBI director because he had expressed antipathy for the FBI, for the director,” he tells Wallace. “[So] I was going to stay there and make sure he couldn’t replace me,” Freeh tells Wallace.
The former FBI director said about the Clinton's, "Whatever moral compass the president was consulting was leading him in the wrong direction," Freeh says. "His closets were full of skeletons just waiting to burst out."
Sunday on 60 minutes, an interview between Mike Wallace and Louis Freeh will be aired...This one will be worth watching. Let's see if CBS actually airs the good stuff about the Clintons.
