That’s the explosive claim in a blockbuster new book by a former White House aide, who charges the ex-President’s ruthless wife, Hillary, has masterminded an elaborate cover-up of Bill’s drug problems for decades!
Bestselling author Roger Stone, who served in Richard Nixon’s White House, told The ENQUIRER that the former Commander-in-Chief, who now suffers from heart problems and Parkinson’s disease, has repeatedly received drug therapy.
And Bill was even hospitalized for an overdose!
Stone insisted that Bill’s drug problems exploded when he was governor of Arkansas from 1979 to 1981 and when he held office again from 1983 to 1992.
The bombshell disclosures in Stone’s tell-all, “The Clintons’ War on Women,” could cripple Hillary’s run for the presidency.
“After Bill Clinton dropped out of the presidential race in July 1987, his handlers set about trying to ‘clean him up’ for future political campaigns,” Stone wrote.
“Part of this process, even if Bill’s womanizing could not be stopped, was to send Bill off to a drug rehab clinic.”
Stone claimed Larry Nichols, then a member of the Clintons’ notorious “Kitchen Cabinet,” was told by Bill’s chief of staff Betsey Wright that Bill was put in rehab to “get off cocaine.”
“Nichols believes this was probably the Betty Ford Clinic in Minnesota, and Wright told Nichols that Clinton had been sent to drug rehab more than once,” added Stone.
Stone also claimed Hillary has been behind the plot to keep her husband’s drug use from America — a fact that may come back to haunt her as her own presidential bid heats up!
“This could blow Hillary right out of the water,” a political insider said.
“She stood by her husband when he cheated left and right. Now comes the information she hid his illicit drug use. There’s only so much the American public can take!”
Stone maintained Hillary was well aware of her husband’s cocaine addiction and threatened people into silence.
“According to Sam Houston — a respected Little Rock doctor — in the early 1980s, Bill was admitted to the University of Arkansas Medical Center for emergency treatment for cocaine abuse and overdose, and had to be cared for at the hospital on one or possibly two occasions,” Stone wrote.
And journalist Christopher Ruddy reported: “When Mrs. Clinton arrived, she told both of the resident physicians on duty that night that they would never again practice medicine in the United States if word leaked out about Clinton’s drug problem.
“Reportedly, Hillary pinned one of the doctors up against the wall, both hands pressed against his shoulders, as she gave the dire warning.”
Bill’s other women, including ex–Miss Arkansas Sally Perdue and busty songbird Gennifer Flowers, also knew about his drug use, said Stone.
He wrote: “Sally said, ‘[Bill] had all of the [cocaine-snorting] equipment laid out, like a real pro.’”
Meanwhile, Gennifer said Bill would carry marijuana joints around, and sometime smoke them in her presence.
She added that she never personally saw Bill use cocaine, but he would talk about it and the effect it had on him.
“He told me about a party he had been to, and said, ‘I got so f—ed up on cocaine at that party,’” she said.
In another incident, Stone said “that while on family vacation in Boca Raton, Fla., Bill snuck away to the bathroom of a local restaurant and apparently was doing cocaine in a stall.
“Asked by a pal if he was okay, Stone said Bill replied: “Yeah, yeah … those damned sinuses are killing me.”
Wrote Stone: “Hillary covered all this up and when it gets out, it’s really going to hurt her campaign — BIG TIME!”
