British TV star Claire Sweeney once claimed to have flirted with, been hit on, by then-President Bill Clinton at a party

 January 17, 2024

Former President Bill Clinton has long had a reputation for being an unfaithful womanizer, as he has been credibly accused by multiple women -- and even admitted it in some instances -- of engaging in extramarital affairs, or worse, committing rape and sexual assault when his advances were declined.

Now a popular British TV star, Claire Sweeney, has recalled an alleged incident during Clinton's presidency in which he flirted with her and made a sexually suggestive comment, though nothing further came of that encounter, according to The U.K. Sun.

That claim from Sweeney, 52, was just one of several of her "raciest confessions" that were shared as she gets set to compete in a new season of ITV's "Dancing on Ice" program.

Flirting with then-President Clinton

In 2009, the Daily Mail reported that Sweeney revealed that she had been at a fancy dress-up party in Russia at some unspecified point in the 1990s that was also attended by then-President Clinton, who allegedly "came over and started chatting me up."

She recalled thinking, "You dirty dog" at the time how one of Clinton's bodyguards had told him it was time to go but that he essentially ditched his security and came back to talk with her again.

Sweeney acknowledged flirting with the U.S. president and claimed she said, "You don’t want to go, do you?" to which he replied, "How can you tell?"

"I said 'Because your left leg is dancing,'" she claimed to have said, which allegedly prompted Clinton to respond, "My middle leg will be dancing soon!"

However, Sweeney asserted that the flirting didn't go any further than that, as she joked, "I shook his hand but decided I was going home with a clean dress that night!"

The Clinton-Lewinsky affair

That quip from Sweeney about "going home with a clean dress" was an obvious reference to former President Clinton's infamous extramarital affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, who was alleged to have kept a semen-stained blue dress as evidence of one of their sexual encounters, according to People magazine.

Clinton had initially denied the allegations about an affair with Lewinsky and even lied to federal investigators about it, which led to his impeachment, but ultimately admitted he had been unfaithful to his wife, Hillary Clinton.

Lewinsky is far from being alone among women who have accused Clinton of making sexual advances on them, often unwanted, and multiple women have gone so far as to accuse him of engaging in rape and sexual assault when those unwanted advances were rejected.

Other Clinton accusers -- Jones, Broaddrick, Willey ... and underage girls on Epstein's island

The Daily Mail reported that during former President Clinton's 1992 campaign, he was accused by former nightclub singer Gennifer Flowers of having been engaged in a 12-year extramarital affair with her before and during his tenure as governor of Arkansas -- a claim he initially denied, though he later acknowledged having sex with her at least once.

Clinton was also sued by -- and later settled with for a substantial sum -- former Arkansas government employee Paula Jones, who accused him of sexual harassment and unwanted sexual advances when he was the governor. That lawsuit from Jones, according to Fox News, also revealed accusations from Juanita Broaddrick that Clinton had raped and sexually assaulted her in an Arkansas hotel room in 1978.

Near the end of his time in office, the then-president was also accused by former White House aid Kathleen Willey of sexually assaulting her during his first term in office -- a charge he flatly denied. Clinton has also steadfastly denied the allegations that he made multiple trips with his former friend, the late convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, to his private Caribbean island on his private jet to have sex with underage girls.
