WHITE HOUSE DNA CHASE: TEEN DOING ‘WELL’ AFTER NEWS OF ‘NO MATCH’

**Exclusive**

He had been told all of his life by his mother that Bill Clinton was his father, but late this week, 13-year old Danny Williams of Arkansas learned the truth: He is not.

A stunning DNA showdown came to a dramatic conclusion this weekend when it was learned that STAR magazine was in posession of lab results — results that ruled out Bill Clinton as the father!

The DRUDGE REPORT was first to reveal the DNA chase that captured the attention of official Washington in a series of exclusive reports.

TIME magazine, in fresh editions, confirms many of the details first reported in this space:

“Using the Starr Report’s FBI analysis of Clinton’s DNA as its reference, STAR paid former prostitute Bobbie Ann Williams and her 13-year-old son for their story and blood samples.”

“The Starr Report contains sufficient data to make a valid DNA comparison to rule out paternity,” TIME magazine reported.

The DRUDGE REPORT has learned that 13-year old Danny Williams is now dealing with the news that Bill Clinton is not his father.

“Danny is holding up fine… doing quite well,” a source close to the situation in Arkansas explained on Saturday.

“For him, this was always just a search for the truth,” the source added.

In what now must be viewed as a cruel hoax by the boy’s mother — Bobbie Ann Williams even gave a paid interview to PARAMOUNT’s HARD COPY detailing her “relationship” with Bill Clinton — the story of sex for money that ended in pregnancy itself, in the end, was debunked and flunked by science.

The tale of Bobbie Ann and her son has been running deep in the Arkansas underground for years. The story hit national exposure with a treatment in the GLOBE tabloid in 1992. The GLOBE at the time reported that the mother had passed a lie detector test.

A picture of young Danny was legend on the Internet, even becoming a source of questioning at a White House press briefing earlier this week.

“The picture on the Internet he looks exactly like the President,” declared a reporter at the White House.

Press secretary Lockhart: “That’s good. And I’m an alien space baby.”

And while the elite media will bark that it was wrong to report the DNA chase that was unfolding behind the scenes — until after it is all over, of course — DRUDGE REPORT readers of all stripes have come to expect details on events rocking and shocking those unfortunate souls who rise to power!

WHITE HOUSE DNA CHASE: MAGAZINE HOLDS TEST RESULTS TIGHT

**Exclusive**

On Thursday night STAR magazine and reporter Richard Gooding were holding lab results tight!

He’s been told all of his life by his mother that Bill Clinton is his father, and late last month, 13-year old Danny Williams of Arkansas underwent a DNA test to find out the truth.

According to publishing sources, orders have been given to top STAR editors, reporter Gooding and the Williams family not to show any leg on where the story currently stands.

“We close our next issue on Monday,” one source explained Thursday night.

The mystery surrounding the DNA tests continued to cause complete confusion inside of the White House, where staffers have been warned to avoid comment on the story.

“It is out of our hands,” one insider said. “To describe the situation as being one of frustration, well, that would be an understatement.”

Gooding has reportedly not called the White House for comment on lab results as of Thursday.

And reports that there have already been preliminary discussions on extending Secret Service protection to young Danny Williams, if events unfold, are being dismissed as nonsense.

The president has denied ever meeting Bobbie Ann Williams.

Danny Williams and his immediate family were moved to a secure location last week when news of the DNA chase publicly surfaced.

And while it is not known if and when the STAR will make the results known, one publishing source told the DRUDGE REPORT Thursday night: “Resolution of this appears very near.”

ATTORNEY GENERAL MOORE?

Could Mississippi’s attorney general, Michael Moore, soon get a call to come to Washington?

If Janet Reno throws in the towel, that’s the phone ringing.

Hot stuff Moore dropped out of Mississippi’s governor race earlier this week stunning political observers who considered him the frontrunner for the Dem nod.

“I’ve received a lot of support and encouragement over the last year to run for governor,” explained Moore. “The truth of the matter is my heart’s not in that race.” Moore said he believes he can”accomplish more in is current position — including additional work on his landmark lawsuit against the tobacco industry that will pull in $3.36B over the next 25 years.

Moore and his wife, Tisha, have one son. Many in the Democratic party have become convinced that he’ll soon take the show national. And if key influential powerplayers have their way…

Watch your left flank, Holder.

RAW ’99

Millennium Generation Freak-Out!

February SPIN mag covers the latest greatest California trend: Food Radicals.

Thousands of words on a sect of dietary extremists known as “raw-foodists.”

SPIN hits Los Angeles to interview vegan star Juliano, 25, who thinks Utopia is just a chick pea smoothie away.

Juliano makes lunch for rocker Bryan Adams:

“Jicama garlic bread, falafel, an amazing salad with an amazing dressing. Persian mulberries, dates, pasta marinara made out of shredded zucchini, fresh-squeezed orange juice.”

Price tag: $300.

And it’s all raw!

“Okay, here is the corny story,” Juliano tells SPIN. “Dude, I’m an instrument and there’s a higher power working through me. I swear. I don’t know why I was selected, how come nobody invented raw pizzas, raw burritos, raw cheeseburgers?”

Juliano, who’s pals with West Hollywood oxygen bar owner Woody Harrelson, is currently negotiating with FOX for his own raw food TV cooking show; he has a book of raw recipes due out from HAPERCOLLINS this spring.

Juliano started to make an impact at local raves. While kids were blasting trip-hop music and tweaking on E, Juliano was going mental with chick peas, jicama, and shredded zucchini. “Raw foods are light, and raves last for days,” he says.

“Juliano is now the toast of Hollywood, somewhere between a chef and a guru,” reports SPIN.

Wheatgrass messiah crafting living pizzas.

He’s also working on screenplays.

“One of them’s an action sci-fi adventure,” Juliano says. “It’s totally just brand-new. Amazing. It’s about the death and rebirth of the planet. Sorry, I can’t tell you more, but it’s so rad. It’s just going to blow people’s minds.”

SPIN leads the piece with a photo of the vegan star in the raw: running naked through an orange grove.

“Mmmm…fruit: Juliano soaks up the life force.”

“Fruit is love,” says another raw eater. “It wants to be as beautiful and tasty as possible. And we are the foster parents of the plants.”

But Juliano wasn’t an instant hit. He earlier tried it up in San Francisco, where he went to be a yogi.

“They hated me… ’cause I was raw. They were like, ‘Ayurvedic is 5,000 years old’ and I’d go, ‘Well, raw is before, you know, fire, man.’ So I was like, ‘Later!'”

But the article turns 1999 scary when it moves away from raw vegans to raw meat eaters.

Because it is Los Angeles and not the forest primeval, raw enthusiasts have to stay creative:

“Some people I know have talked about buying a goat and slaughtering it and eating it fresh,” raw-foodist David Karas tells the magazine.

Karas says he consumes raw mammals at least four times a week. He also hasn’t shampooed his hair in 18 months.

Attracting unsuspecting animals with the stench?

WOMAN NAMES BILL CLINTON FATHER OF SON IN SHOCKING VIDEO CONFESSION

**World Exclusive**

In a shocking new videotaped confession viewed by the DRUDGE REPORT late Tuesday, an Arkansas woman claims that President Bill Clinton is the father of her 13-year old son.

He’s been told all of his life by his mother that Bill Clinton is his father, and late last month, 13-year old Danny Williams of Arkansas underwent a DNA test to find out the truth.

The story of Bobbie Ann Williams and her child Danny hit world media and rocked the White House this week after it was revealed that STAR MAGAZINE and ace investigative reporter Richard Gooding have exclusively signed Williams and his family to a paternity showdown.

Test results could not be learned Tuesday night. Gooding and Star magazine editors offered few details on the status of the story, even to their closest associates.

“It is his,” Ms. Williams tells PARAMOUNT’s HARD COPY in a videotaped confession recently made by the syndicated TV show. With tears rolling down her face, Williams reveals intimate details about her relationship with Bill Clinton.

“He was good to me, he gave me money,” she tells HARD COPY. “No, I’m not scared.”

Also interviewed on the video is Williams’ sister. She tells HARD COPY how she first doubted her sister’s claims.

“I thought she was joking, you know, she was running around in the streets… But when the kid was born, he looked just liked Bill Clinton.

“We would go to grocery stores, people would say ‘That’s Bill Clinton’s son!’ because he looks just like him!” the woman declares.

“Now that he’s older — he even looks more like him…

“Bill Clinton needs to take responsibility for his son, pay child support, like everyone else.”

HARD COPY executives have not decided if and when they will air the interviews, which were conducted in Arkansas.

It is not known how much HARD COPY paid, if anything, for the sessions.

Could Bobbie Ann Williams and her sister be blackmailing the President of the United States with outrageous and false claims of sex for money and the pregnancy that resulted?

What becomes immediately obvious to the viewer watching the videotaped confession is that this is clearly not gossip, rumor or anonymous charges being maliciously directed at a politician.

Bobbie Ann Williams does not hide her face in shadow when she names Bill Clinton as the father of her son.

And there is something sad and lonely about the woman’s story the way she tells it.

To accuse the most powerful man in the world of being the father of her son is either the hoax of a lifetime, or a personal turmoil that needs resolution.

Only two people may know that answer tonight.

WHITE HOUSE DNA CHASE: TEST RESULTS EXPECTED TUESDAY

**World Exclusive**

“I know it is his!” mother Bobbie Ann Williams told the STAR magazine during a preliminary interview. “He’s the only white man I slept with that month.”

And now the DRUDGE REPORT has learned, preliminary DNA test results in the Danny Williams/Bill Clinton paternity showdown are expected as early as today!

He’s been told all of his life that Bill Clinton is his father, and late last month, 13-year old Danny Williams of Arkansas underwent a DNA test to find out the truth.

The STAR magazine and ace investigative reporter Richard Gooding hope to determine Danny Williams’ true paternity by matching the teen’s DNA with information made public in the Starr report — information that traced the president to Monica Lewinsky’s dirty dress.

Phil Bunton, editor of the STAR magazine, said late Monday: “It could be a 13 year-old hoax, we don’t know yet.”

But the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal that lab runs on DNA samples provided by Williams and his mother have now been analyzed and are being compared to Bill Clinton’s genetic code outlined in information publicly released by the United States Congress.

It is not known if and when the STAR will make the results known.

There is also tremendous intriguing surrounding tuition payments made to a private school in Arkansas that Williams has been attending. But details on what information Star and Gooding may have regarding those payments were sketchy Monday night.

STAR and Gooding have arranged for Williams and his mother to hold an all-media press conference blowout if DNA results show a link.

Elsewhere, White House staffers of all ranks have been warned to “avoid direct denials” regarding the paternity challenge, at least until results are in, it has been learned.

“It is obviously just a final push to embarrass the president,” one insider told the DRUDGE REPORT. “But if there is one thing that we’ve learned from the past twelve months, nothing is gained by going with absolutes.”

Press secretary Joe Lockhart followed the script during a Monday briefing at the White House where he was pressed for official comment:

Q: Joe, I’m not here to defend the STAR tabloid, but it seems to me they broke the story of Gennifer Flowers and the Dick Morris sex scandal. Now, when both of those stories broke, defenders of the President said, oh, it’s just the Star, it’s just a tabloid, we’re not going to dignify that with a response. And that was sort of the way to discredit the story. It seems to me that both those stories turned out to be true — the Dick Morris story certainly turned out to be true; the Gennifer Flowers story, at least a portion of it, the President has admitted that he had at least one sexual liaison with Gennifer Flowers. And my question is, how can you use that same defense to just dismiss out of hand the story? I’m not asking whether the story is true, but wouldn’t it be more instructive to just deny or acknowledge the facts that are in question here, rather than try to smear that tabloid?

MR. LOCKHART: I’m not trying to smear, I’m just telling you that unless you have some independent reporting that you want to bring to this room and ask me about, I’m just not going to comment.

Q: The picture on the Internet he looks exactly like the President.

MR. LOCKHART: That’s good. And I’m an alien space baby.

[Laughter]

And we’re probably related — so, next.

Q Do we have some of your DNA?

MR. LOCKHART: Sam, that’s personal and we’ll talk afterwards. [Laughter]

Okay, I think we’re done here, guys.

Thank you. END

The STAR signed Williams and his immediate family to a retainer valued in the low six-figures. In exchange, the family agreed to be tested, interviewed and will sit for an exclusive photo spread.

[Reports that Danny Williams has already posed for a photo in front of the White house appear to be erroneous.]

Williams’ mother told a tabloid in 1992 that she approached Clinton after she allegedly got pregnant with his child during a paid sex session. She said: “He just laughed. He was rubbing my big belly and said: ‘Girl, this can’t be my baby.’ But I knew it was… And the older he got, the more he started looking like his daddy, Bill.”

The current thinking inside of the Star magazine, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned, is to not go with the story if the lab tests do not show a DNA link to the president.

“If there is no match, there simply is no story,” a magazine source explained late Monday.

WHITE HOUSE DNA CHASE: NEW DETAILS EMERGE

**World Exclusive**

He’s been told all of his life that Bill Clinton is his father, and late last month, 13-year old Danny Williams of Arkansas underwent a DNA test to find out the truth!

And now just 24 hours after the DRUDGE REPORT first revealed that the White House was being rocked by a new DNA terror, the story was out-of-control and landing on front pages of newspapers all over the world!

“CLINTON PATERNITY BOMBSHELL” the NEW YORK POST screams in a Page One on Sunday!

London’s Fleet Street was fighting over any new scrap of information.

“It’s not the race of the mother that is trouble, or the fact she was a prostitute,” one Clinton adviser told the DRUDGE REPORT late Saturday in hurried breath. “It’s the chance, that if the test comes back positive, he is a ‘Dead Beat Dad!'”

The results from the DNA test are still not known as this transmits.

The Williams DNA sample sits in a lab somewhere in the southeast United States.

And results from the test will be matched with information found in the Independent Counsel’s impeachment report to Congress!

The STAR magazine and ace investigative reporter Richard Gooding hope to determine Danny Williams’ true paternity by matching the teen’s DNA with information made public in the Starr report — information that traced the president to Monica Lewinsky’s dirty dress!

It is believed that the information found in the Starr material will allow 99% accuracy on paternity results.

The DRUDGE REPORT has also learned that STAR and Gooding have arranged for Williams and his mother to hold an all-media press conference blowout if the test come back positive.

The whereabouts of Williams, his family, or reporter Gooding are not known as this transmits.

“It’s completely Bullshit! I guarantee you that if you do this you’ll never work in Democratic politics again!”

That was the threat issued by George Stephanopulos to Steve Dinari, director of Ross Perot’s Illinois campaign, in 1992 when Dinari informed him that he was ready to go public with this story, according to the Internet’s NEWSMAX.COM.

“If you went on the radio and said that Bill Clinton is the father of an illegitimate black child, you will be laughed at,” Stephanopulos said.

“People will think you’re crazy… You will be embarrassed before the national press corps. People will think, nobody will believe you, and people will think you’re scum.”

For all parties involved, the horrible wait has begun.

WHITE HOUSE HIT WITH NEW DNA TERROR; TEEN TESTED FOR CLINTON PATERNITY

**World Exclusive**

“I just want to know who my dad is.”

He’s been told all of his life that Bill Clinton is his father, and late last month, 13-year old Danny Williams of Arkansas underwent a DNA test to find out the truth!

STAR MAGAZINE and ace investigative reporter Richard Gooding have exclusively signed Williams and his family for the paternity test of the century!

Word of the shocking new DNA showdown spread through the ranks inside of the White House on Friday, causing near blind chaos!

“It’s the stained dress all over again,” one well-placed source reveals. “We’ve been here before.”

The results from the DNA test are not known as this transmits.

Repeat.

The results from the DNA test are not known.

But Danny Williams and his immediate family have reportedly been moved to a secure location, away from media onslaught.

The Williams DNA will be compared to Clinton DNA results that were previously obtained, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

And Gooding has been building the story for sometime, according to insiders.

“He’s maintained a good relationship with the family,” says a source. “They trust him. They just finally want to know the truth!”

Williams’ guardian, his aunt, Lucille Bolton, could not be reached for comment.

The story of Danny Williams and his mother Bobbie Ann has been circling in Arkansas for years. Williams told a tabloid in 1992 that her son was conceived during a paid sex encounter with Bill Clinton. [The mother passed a lie-detector test.]

The current DNA cliffhanger is not the first time that Gooding has hit a gusher on the Clinton scandal front. STAR’s Gooding caused pandemonium back in 1996 when he exclusively exposed Dick Morris’ relationship with a prostitute.
