In a bombshell revelation, Dick Morris, former advisor to President Bill Clinton stated that his decision to step down in 1996 was taken due to then-first lady Hillary Clinton's "Nixonian" attempt to attack the woman Bill Clinton had reportedly victimized and sexually harassed, according to Breitbart.
On Friday's OraTV's "Politicking," Morris claimed that he had eventually parted ways with the Clintons because of Hillary's incessant need to hire detectives, dig up dirt on Bill's mistresses, and eventually use that information to attack and smear the individual's character.
Even though he believed Bill to have been a very good president, it was Hillary who allegedly drove him away.
"What really turned me off was what I call secret police. When she [Hillary] hired this fleet of detectives to go around examining all of the woman who had been identified with Clinton. Not for the purpose of divorcing Clinton. Not for the purpose of getting him to stop but for the purpose of developing blackmail material on these woman to cow them into silence that had a Nixonian quality that I hold against her and I continue to," he said on the show.
On August 29, 1996, Morris resigned from the Clinton campaign after tabloid reports stated that he had been involved with a prostitute, Sherry Rowlands, as reported by the Washington Post.
It's been decades since former President Bill Clinton's "inappropriate relationship" with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky and several other women came to light.
In 1998, Lewinsky, then a 22-year-old White House intern, had a sexual relationship with Bill Clinton. After an impeachment and trial, Clinton was eventually acquitted of the impeachment charges.
In February, Mitt Romney had made controversial comments that he believed Clinton to have "embarrassed the nation." However, he did not think the Monica Lewinsky scandal would be a factor if Hillary Clinton decided to run for president in 2016.
"I think Hillary Clinton, if she becomes a nominee, will have plenty to discuss about her own record," Romney said on NBC's "Meet The Press" on Sunday. "I don't imagine that Bill Clinton is going to be a big part of it."
"He embarrassed the nation," Romney said of Clinton. "He breached his responsibility, I think, as an adult and as a leader in his relationship. And I think that's very unfortunate. But I don't think that's Hillary Clinton's to explain. She has her own record, her own vision for where she would take the country. And I think that's something which will be debated extensively during the 2016 campaign."
