Sources: Kathleen Willey Changes Sworn Statement
By Bob Franken/CNN
WASHINGTON (March 2) -- Kathleen Willey has changed her sworn statement about her alleged White House sexual contact with President Bill Clinton, sources with firsthand knowledge tell CNN.
Willey had previously testified she talked with no one about her testimony in the Paula Jones case. But in her revision, filed on the last possible day to avoid a perjury charge, she cites Democratic fund-raiser Nathan Landow as speaking to her several times.
Landow did not comment for CNN, but is quoted in news reports as acknowledging talking to Willey, but not about her testimony.
In her sworn statement, Willey describes in detail how she came to the president to say she was "desperate" for a job, because she and her husband were having serious difficulties, CNN confirmed.
She also describes how she says Clinton took her to his small study off the Oval Office, tried to kiss her, groped her and how they were interrupted by an aide's knock on the door.
Willey's account has been challenged. Sources say the president's lawyers have an affidavit from a friend of Willey's saying Willey tried to get her to lie and say Willey had told her of the incident on the day it happened, when she did not.
Not only does Willey have a role in the Paula Jones case, she and Landow have been subpoenaed to appear before the grand jury investigating the Monica Lewinsky matter, according to sources close to the investigation.
