FLASHBACK Bill Clinton Paid Paula Jones $850k
While the media continues to salaciously salivate over the Stormy Daniels saga, we can't help but to remind news consumers how much Bill Clinton paid to Paula Jones in 1999.
According to a New York Times report:
We want to make note of two things:
Just as the Senate is about to begin President Clinton's impeachment trial in earnest, Mr. Clinton sent $850,000 to Paula Corbin Jones today to settle the sexual misconduct lawsuit that started it all.
Clinton Administration officials said a check for $850,000, the amount agreed to in November to settle the case, was being sent by overnight mail to Ms. Jones and her lawyers. The officials, who asked that their names not be used, said that a little more than half of the money, $475,000, came from an insurance policy against civil liability the President held with Chubb Group Insurance. Most, if not all, of the remainder was withdrawn from a blind trust in the name of Mrs. Clinton, which officials said last year had assets of slightly more than $1 million.
First, If there's a shred of truth that Trump's attorney Michael Cohen paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 dollars then we know who is the better negotiator.
Second, we want to note the stark difference between the payments. Clinton paid Paula Jones to settle a lawsuit, while the $130,000 payment from Michael Cohen to Stormy Daniels was part of a non-disclosure agreement.
