Gennifer Flowers: 'Clinton Offered Me Cocaine' - Thanks SamTrak


The President of the United States was a known drug user during his days as Governor of Arkansas, according to Gennifer Flowers, who carried on a 12 year love affair with Bill Clinton before he sought the White House in 1992.

Flowers alleges that she was an eyewitness to Clinton's marijuana use and says he offered her cocaine during their relationship.

Flowers gave her shocking account to Inside Cover during an exclusive appearance Friday afternoon on Sean Hannity's WABC talk radio show in New York, where the onetime Clinton confidante answered an array of probing questions on topics considered taboo in other news venues.

INSIDE COVER: Ms. Flowers, (former Clinton girlfriend) Sally Perdue says that Bill Clinton used drugs in her presence, specifically cocaine. Did you ever see Bill Clinton use drugs in your presence?

FLOWERS: Yes. He smoked marijuana in my presence and offered me the opportunity to snort cocaine if I wanted to. I wasn't into that. Bill clearly let me know that he did cocaine. And I know people that knew he did cocaine. He did tell me that when he would use a substantial amount of cocaine that his head would itch so badly that he would become self conscious at parties where he was doing this. Because all he wanted to do while people were talking to him is stand around and scratch his head.

What about the recently reported charge that Mrs. Clinton herself might have been unfaithful in her marriage? Inside Cover put the question to Flowers:

INSIDE COVER: Did Bill Clinton ever mention anything to you about Vincent Foster and Hillary?

FLOWERS: I asked him about that because I had heard it. And he said that, let's see, he had a cute little comment about that, an interesting comment. That "she was too tough for him," or something to that effect. I kind of thought that maybe he knew about it but just didn't want to acknowledge it.

The former Clinton girlfriend also shed new light on a controversial allegation she made earlier this week, when she called the President a "murderer" during a cable television interview.

When the WABC's Hannity noted that her comments to CNBC's Chris Matthews had provoked a "firestorm" of controversy, Flowers explained that she was talking about a list of names called "The Clinton Body Count"; 50 or more people connected to Bill Clinton who have died prematurely as he rose to political power.

Then Flowers described her own predicament:

"You know, I have been in fear for my life, I had been in fear for my safety before my story became public; a few months before and certainly since then. And I think you would agree with me that all of the women that have come forth and told their story about whatever type of relationship they had with Bill Clinton, all have said that they have been threatened."

Flowers said that just before her name became public in Jan. 1992, her home had been entered and ransacked, explaining that, "whoever that was (who broke in) had a key to my home."

Similarly, Juanita Broaddrick, who told Inside Cover in May that her house had been broken into just as she was considering going public with a rape allegation against Bill Clinton, said the burglars left no sign of forcible entry. A telephone answering machine tape was the only item taken from Broaddrick's home.

Flowers told Hannity that the experience has left her feeling extremely vulnerable. "To this day, I don't go out in a big public forum without security. I do various things to have more protection than the average person for my security; as does my husband, as does my mother."

Hannity pressed Flowers on the question of whether she believes Clinton was directly involved in ordering people killed:

"I believe that, that's very possible.... I'm not saying that Bill neccessarily picked up the phone and placed an order. He perhaps may have had a discussion with some of his operatives and made known his wishes. Perhaps by not even using the words but making it clear to them what he wanted accomplished......I think, knowing Bill the way I know Bill, that he generally has a pretty good handle on what's going on around him and who's doing what, and when they're doing it and why they're doing it."

And what if she had kept quiet about her Clinton affair?

Flowers told Hannity, "I do not believe you and I would be talking today. I believe that I would be one of those mysterious suicides that you'll find on 'The Clinton Body Count'. I believe that I wouldn't be here. I believe I would be dead."

Flowers recalled the encounters that her friends and family had with San Francisco private detective Jack Palladino, who was paid $110,000 by Clinton's 1992 campaign to suppress what then-Clinton Chief of Staff Betsey Wright described as "bimbo eruptions."

HANNITY: I have a report here about how Jack Palladino once tracked down your friend Loren Kirk and grilled her about you. And one of the things he asked Loren Kirk was: "Is Gennifer the type to commit suicide?" Did you and Loren Kirk ever discuss this incident?

FLOWERS: Yes, she told me about that. Several people called me and told me that they had been approached by Palladino. And they gave me a run down of the things that he had said, the questions he had asked, his demeanor.....

HANNITY: So it wasn't just Loren Kirk who relayed that question to you?

FLOWERS: Oh, no. It was many, many people. That was a very common question that he asked of every one of them.

HANNITY: That's bizarre.

The conversation turned to another name on the Clinton list. On June 26, 1992 Little Rock resident Gary Johnson was beaten to a pulp by two goons and left for dead, surviving only after an emergency operation to remove his punctured spleen saved his life.

Apparently Mr. Johnson had some very inconvenient evidence in his possession.

FLOWERS: He was my neighbor at Quawpaw Tower....He had a security camera mounted on the inside of his door at the peephole, so that the camera lens faced down the hallway. So that anyone who got off the elevator going in either direction, and especially coming towards that camera to my door, would clearly be in view of that camera lens. So after my story became public, Mr. Johnson came forward and said that he had this video of Bill coming to my door....

HANNITY: And he claims that they beat him up, took the tape and left him for dead. Is that right?

FLOWERS: That's what he says. And I've seen him in interviews talking about that. Now he's an attorney in Little Rock. And I believe that he did make a report with the Police Department in reference to everything. So it's a matter of public record.

Since 1992, Gary Johnson's account has been completely ignored by the mainstream press.

Gennifer Flowers is the fifth on-the-record source to corroborate charges that Clinton, while governor, used illegal drugs.

Others making the charge include a former head of the Arkansas State Police Association, another onetime Clinton girlfriend, and a Little Rock drug dealer who testified before a federal grand jury in 1990 that she witnessed Clinton consume some of the cocaine she sold his younger brother in a Little Rock nightspot.
