It was 22 years ago today Kathleen Willey says she was groped by President Clinton in the White House.
It was also the day Ed Willey, Kathleen’s husband, “was lying dead of a gunshot wound to his mouth in the woods near his car, parked on a hunting path in rural King and Queen County, Virginia,” in the words of WND.
Today, Willey penned a heartbreaking remembrance of her late husband on Facebook.
“November 29, 1993, the worst day of our lives,” Kathleen begins.
You were so young and handsome. You have missed so much, walking our daughter down the aisle, Patrick’s graduation from college, Shannon’s graduation from medical school, Patrick’s wedding, the births of your two beautiful granddaughters and the joy of being a grandfather.
Our family was shattered, everyone is still angry, way too much finger-pointing, years of not even talking to each other. You left us with such hopelessness and guilt. It all paralyzed us. We have never even grieved together. So much guilt, “what if’s” and “if only’s.” How did we miss so many signals? We never saw it coming. Our children’s lives are forever damaged.
We can’t seem to find our way back to any semblance of a family we once shared. The holidays are nothing but god-awful. The magic of Christmas is gone forever. And to this day, for the life of me, I can’t remember my last words to you. What in the name of God were you thinking?
You left us in shambles and the pieces of that life can never be put back together again. 22 years ago and it still feels like it was only yesterday. I still find things of yours after all these years. Will we ever heal from all of this? Why? Why, Why?
We will always love you and miss you…..
When asked by The American Mirror if she blamed the Clintons, Willey responded, “When it comes to the Clintons, I never know what’s true and what isn’t.”
In 2007, Willey said she “most definitely” believed her husband was murdered.
WND reported that year:
“I’m having someone with a forensics background look at this, and I intend to pursue this further, now that these questions have been raised,” she told WND, pointing to alleged discrepancies in the autopsy report.
Does she believe the Clintons were involved?
“I do have suspicions,” Willey said, “yes.”
It was Ed Willey’s dire financial straits that prompted Kathleen, then a White House volunteer, to seek a meeting with President Clinton in the Oval Office to plead for a paying job and any other help the commander-in-chief could give.
But Willey alleges the Nov. 29, 1993, meeting ended abruptly when the president cornered her in a private passageway and sexually assaulted her.
