- Attorney Says Reno Blackmailed
By Sex Tapes ConservativeNews.com
By Dean Arnold 8-12-98
- In Mondays Wall Street Journal, a Florida
attorney writes on the editorial page that Janet Reno is "unfit to
practice law, let alone serve as this country's top cop."
- Now, for the rest of the story.
- This high-profile lawyer, Jack Thompson
(who has appeared on such shows as Nightline, Crossfire and Good Morning
America exposing obscene rap groups like 2LiveCrew), tells ConservativeNews.com
that blackmail is the likely reason that Attorney General Reno has unlawfully
failed to appoint an independent counsel in the fundraising probe, even
in the face of contempt and impeachment charges.
- Thompson made similar charges against
Reno in an interview with radio talkshow host Oliver North:
- North: Reno should want to step up and...request
an independent counsel. Why doesnt she do it?
- Thompson: Because she fears something
more than the wrath of Bill Clinton.
- North: Which is?
- Thompson: What would be released through
a back-channel about her personal life that he is aware of. Here is a
president who likes to read raw FBI files. Here is a president who has
undoubtedly seen whats in her raw FBI files and it includes some of the
stuff Ive told you about - the mafia connections, about her drunk driving,
and about her use of call girls.
- North: Janet Reno uses call girls?
- Thompson: Ollie, let me tell you something.
I've welcomed Janet Reno to sue me for the last decade while I've said
these things, and more importantly, the Florida Bar - which is filled with
politically correct [people], some of them her campaign contributors in
the race she ran against me, The Florida Bar has every reason to disbar
me if I am not telling the truth. I've put my law career on the line by
making these allegations. But I have the proof. And I have people independent
of me that can prove this."
- Thompson's allegation were originally
printed in Chronicles in 1993, a publication by the Rockford Institute.
Thompson claimed Reno's closeted lesbianism alone was enough to keep her
compromised. He quoted Richard Gerstein, Reno's predecessor as Miami District
Attorney, a lifelong Democrat: "No [closeted] homosexual can be a
prosecutor because it gives every defendant the blackmail option."
- When Thompson ran against Reno for Miami
D.A. in 1988 (and was endorsed by the Fraternal Order of Police), she
categorically denied being a lesbian. But after her nomination for Attorney
General, her response to the question was less emphatic. "Mr. Thompson
is preoccupied with my sexual orientation," she told the media. "I
am an old maid who has a strong affection for men."
- Days later, Queer Nation "outed"
Reno and a spokesman said, "Many homosexuals in Miami have contacted
us and told us that Reno's lesbianism is common knowledge among the gay
community." NOW's Patricia Ireland responded to the outing by saying,
"Ms. Reno should not be judged on the basis of her sexual orientation."
- Thompson says Reno's sexual preference,
per se, is not the core issue. "The issue has always been Reno's blackmailability
because of her closeted proclivities," he said.
- In an interview with ConservativeNews.com,
Thompson named one cal girl he spoke to named Crystal Kazim, who claimed
to have received money for sex from Reno at Reno's home. Thompson said
these services were confirmed to him by Ms. Kazim's escort provider Jay
Goldstein, brother of Screw magazine publisher Al Goldstein.
- Thompson passed both of these names on
to the FBI before Reno's appointment to Justice, and the allegations are
likely in her FBI file now.
- Thompson told ConservativeNews.com he
shared the details of his concerns with Clinton aide Lanny Davis, who was
responsible for examining Reno before the nomination.
- Thompson says his law school buddy Sam
Jones, a law partner with Clinton confidante Bruce Lindsey, also warned
the Clintons of Reno's problems. But Thompson now says he is convinced
the administration wanted a "dirty cop" for their Attorney General.
- Thompson, who says Reno is a "predatory
lesbian" with a penchant for "aggressive sex," also claims
that organized crime is in possession of videotapes of Reno. He told ConservativeNews.com
that several associates of Miami's premiere call girl operation told
him they have "video of Reno in a sex orgy."
- In the Chronicles article, Thompson cites
apprehension of Reno "by a Broward County police officer in a shopping
mall parking lot in the back seat of a car with a disrobed girl, as related
by a homosexual Ft. Lauderdale talk show host."
- Thompson has been in touch with Fox News
host Bill O'Reilly recently and with the show's producer, which may explain
OReilly's veiled comments last week. In an attempt to explain the failure
to name an Independent Counsel, OReilly stated that "Washington tonight
is swirling with rumors about Janet Reno's personal habits."
- Thompson is a resident of Coral Gables,
Florida, and received from his legal peers the highest rating possible
in both skills and ethics. His efforts against 2LiveCrew resulted
in the first ruling in history making a sound recording obscene.
