The D'Amato committee finally had Helen Dickey testify about the phone call she allegedly made from the White House to the Arkansas Govorner's mansion.

Predictably, Helen Dickey insisted that she did not make the phone call until much later than is claimed by the involved police officers, Roger Perry and Larry Patterson. Adding insult to injury, committee members made the statement that the two "former" troopers were no longer willing to testify.

Of course, that turned out to be less than accurate. Both Perry and Patterson are still active duty law enforcement officers and are as ready as ever to testify.

In addition to countering the Whitewater Committee's claim while being interviewed by Mike Reagan, both Perry and Patterson have released the affidavits they've submitted on this matter.

Bear in mind that an affidavit represents testimony under oath. The penelties for lying on a sworn affidavit can be just as severe as if one is found lying in court.

I apologize up front for the less than great quality of the scans, but I was working from faxed copies, and for the prudent and obvious reasons do not with to image process them. The downloadable scans are quite large, and can be read with a fair degree of ease.


UPDATE!

Okay, the scans are apparently NOT that easy to read on some people's web browsers.

Normally I don't do transcripts. I believe that people should look at the raw data and make up their own minds. That's what Democracy is about; not reliance on a bunch of self-proclaimed experts to tell us what thus-and-so means.

However, I've gotten some email that these affidavits are unreadable on some browsers, so I've added transcripts under the following caveats.

These are as close as I can get. If I wasn't certain about something, I enclosed the uncertainty in brackets. Formatting is preserved to aid cross referencing.

  On this day comes before me, a Notary Public, authorized to administer oaths, in and
for the County of Pulaski, State of Arkansas, Roger Perry to me well known, who being
first duly sworn, says, upon oath:

  On the 20th day of July, 1993, I received a telephone call from a person known to me
as Helen Dickey. I was working on the security detail at the Arkansas Governor's
mansion in Little Rock, Arkansas at that time. Dickey advised me that Vincent Foster,
well known to me, had gotten off work and had gone out to his car in the parking lot and
had shot himself in     the head. I do not recall the exact time of this telephone call but am
fairly certain it was some time from about 4:30 p.m. to no later than 7:00 p.m.

  Dickey had previously been employed as a baby-sitter for Governor Clinton's child and
at the time of the call she was working at the White House in Washington, D.C. I then
passed the message on to Governor Jim Guy Tucker through his wife.

  During my tenure at the Governor's Mansion I received a number of calls from Jennifer
Flowers to Governor Clinton. 

  I have been told by Danny Furgeson, another trooper who was working security detail
at the time, at the Governor's Mansion, that he had talked with a young lady named Paula
during a conferenec at the Excelsior Hotel and that he had taken her up to a room in that
hotel at the direct request of then Governor Clinton. Danny has also stated that he
talked with [P]aula at a restaurant in Little Rock during a chance meeting shortly before she
filed her suit. He told her then, according to his conversation with me, that he would
testify on her behalf if she did file suit against Clinton. I have read Danny's answer to her
suit and [see] that he admitted taking Paula up to Clinton's room on that occasion.

first duly sworn, says, upon oath:

  I received a telephone call from Roger Perry on the 20th day of July, 1993. Roger was
working security detail at the Arkansas Governor's Mansion in Little Rock. He advised
me that a lady known to both of us as Helen Dickey had telephonically [contacted] him and
advised him that Vincent Foster, well known to both of us because of his relationship with
Hillary Clinton and his being an advisor to Governor Bill Clinton had gotten off work and
had gone out to his car in the parking lot and had shot himself in the head. I do not recall
the exact time of this telephone call but am fairly certain it was sometime before 6:00 p.m.
on that date.

  Dickey was employed as a baby-sitter by Governor and Hillary Clinton while in
Arkansas and at the time of the call she was working at the White House in Washington,
D.C.

  I have been asked, under oath, whether Bill Clinton ever had extramarital affairs while
he was Governor of Arkansas. I have replied that I knew Jennifer Flowers, who has said
she had an affair with Governor Clinton. I took him, on occasions to the Quapaw Towers,
where she lived, and where he would meet with her. I have taken him to see other [females]
with whom he had personal relationships, including one he met during the night at Chelsea
Clinton's schoolyard. I worked with Danny Furgeson, another trooper who was working
security detail at the Governor's Mansion. Danny told me that he had talked with a young
lady named Paula Jones during a meeting at the Excelsior Hotel in Little Rock. He told
me he had taken her up to a room in that Hotel after having been asked to by then
Governor Bill Clinton. On one occasion I was with Governor Clinton when we met Paula
Jones in the rotunda at the State Capital. The Governor referred to her as Paula as they
hugged. Danny has also told me that he talked with Paula as a restaurant in Little Rock in
the summer of 1994. At that time, Paula told Danny that she had learned she had been
[mentioned] in a [negative] article about Bill Clinton. He told her then, according to his
conversation with me, that he would testify in her behalf if she did file suit against Clinton.
I have read Danny's answer to her suit and see that he admitted taking Paula up to 
Clinton's room on that occasion. That agrees with what I kn[o]w about that situation.

(text portion only)

  This is to certify that on the 20th day of July, 1993, I
received a telephone call from Roger Perry, of the Arkansas
State Police, who was a member of the Arkansas Governor's
security detail.

  Perry advised me that he had just received a telephone
call from one Helen Dickey, a [former] baby-sitter for Chelsea
Clinton, who was employed at the White House and that she
had advised him that Vincent Foster, known to both Perry and
me, and gone to his car in the Parking Lot and had shot 
himself in the head.

  I do not recall the exact time of the call, but I [place]
it as being during the rush hour at the White House and
[assumed] there must be many witnesses to the event. Perry
advised me that Helen Dickey was quite upset as if the event had
happened shortly beforre her call to him. I estimate the time
is being no later that six o'clock, Central Standard Time.

  Perry advised me that he had telephonically contacted
Betty Tucker who had relayed the message to Governor Jim Guy
Tucker.
