1993- Travelgate

Hillary Clinton and David Watkins move to oust the White House travel office in favor of World Wide Travel, Clinton’s source of $1 million in fly-now-pay-later campaign trips. The White House fires seven long-term employees for alleged mismanagement and kickbacks. The director, Billy Dale, charged with embezzlement, will be acquitted in less than two hours by the jury. Hillary Clinton had made false accusations against the travel office employees, to allow her friends and those of President Bill Clinton to take over the travel business.
