Clinton aide recalls Rose Law Firm visit on Sesame Street

Speaking about sexual assault during a appearance on Sesame Street this week, Jacqueline Eagan, a former White House intern who was named as a possible witness in a 1992 sexual harassment investigation by the Clinton White House, shared an emotional anecdote of the Rose Law Firm’s visit to the White House.

“I remember [White House intern] Patty Ann and I in the front row, and the Rose Law Firm was there to see us,” Eagan, who told TVLine.com last month that she has continued to suffer emotional effects as a result of the accusation, said. “When the Rose Law Firm came to the White House, we sat in the front row right where they were sitting with the secretaries of the Senate and the House and the president.”

She added: “We got to see Robert F Kennedy when he was leading the march … I got to see Janet Reno, whose portraits I have at home … I wanted to memorize all the people I saw.”

Even after the episode was directed by the Sesame Street creator and writer Michael Price, the elephant in the room never truly went away. She said: “Even after my interview, I still feel the pressure, and I still worry that someone will try to bring up something about me that is in some way offensive or not true. So it’s still just a constant thing. I still have nightmares, and I still feel like I’m going to get attacked, and I still have to protect myself.”

With Clinton promising never to return to the White House during his presidency, The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story in 2016 and PBS’s American Horror Story all dipping into their own historical backdrops, The New Yorker recently noted a decline in interest in the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky case, with only 6% of Americans wanting to re-experience it through nonfiction movies.

The Oscar-winning documentary, The Clinton Tapes: Living History, aired on HBO in 2015. That film then followed one of the most important people to have ever visited the White House, as well as helping to prevent the re-election of the first woman president, Hillary Clinton. Eagan doesn’t regret making the decision to sit down for the interview: “I would do it over again in a heartbeat … I know I did nothing wrong.”
