According to the Drudge Report, CNN president Jeff Zucker has ordered a media blackout on the story of Danney Williams, who claims to be the illegitimate son of Bill Clinton.
Williams is scheduled for an interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ InfoWars Wednesday, but according to Drudge, CNN will make sure its viewers hear nothing about the claims of Hilary Clinton’s “stepson.”
Here’s the developing story posted by Drudge Wednesday morning:
CNN boss Jeff Zucker has directly ordered network staff not to cover shocking allegations made my Arkansas resident Danney Williams, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
Williams, who is set to give his first TV interview today on INFOWARS.COM, claims to be Bill Clinton’s biological son.
“Jeff thinks it is a ridiculous hoax,” a top CNN source reveals.
“I always felt bad about Bill Clinton not wanting to be in my life,” Williams explains in a video released Monday. “Was it because I was black? Was there something wrong with me? It made me think sometimes even of suicide. It’s not fair and it has been hurtful.”
“Hillary, please do not deny I exist. I am your stepson.”
In a 10-minute testimonial video released Tuesday, Williams tells the story of his attempts to reunite with the man he is certain is his biological father:
As the Daily Wire reported recently, Williams’ claims are shaky at best (the failed DNA test Williams mentions above being the only real “evidence” brought forth yet), but they’re not altogether implausible given Slick Willy’s infamous philandering past. A few reporters, including the Daily Beast’s Olivia Nuzzi, have tried to do a little more digging on the story, but haven’t been able to find any hard evidence either way. The “Banished” video is perhaps the most thorough account yet given by Williams.
Some more background on Clinton’s long-lost “son”:
According to the Daily Mail’s report, the rumors stemmed from a prostitute named Bobbie Ann Williams, who claimed that Clinton was a frequent client of hers in the timeframe when she became pregnant with Danney Williams. She told The Glone—a tabloid news outlet—in 1992 that she “just had this kind of woman’s feeling that this was his [Clinton’s] child” because of her son’s “light” skin tone.
Bobbie Williams also claims that Clinton laughed off the notion that he was Danney Williams’ father when she confronted him about it during the pregnancy.
Danney Williams himself told The Globe in 2013, “I read he doesn’t have long to live and I want to meet him face to face before he dies. I just want to shake his hand and say ‘Hi Dad,’ before he dies. I’d like to have a relationship with Chelsea, too. She’s my half-sister.”
