|Paula Jones along with Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick and Kathy Shelton were attending the second debate. Donald Trump wanted to give Bill Clinton a reminder of his past. He wanted to take Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton off her game.|
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would have been greeted by Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick. It was stopped by the debate commission. The goal was to intimidate Clinton and embarrass her husband by sitting women who accused former president Bill Clinton of sexual abuse in the Trump family's box at the presidential debate. The Donald Trump Presidential Campaign was determined to get Clinton off her game.
Campaign manager Kellyanne Conway was unaware of the plan.
This was clearly a move pushed by Stephen K. Bannon, New York Observer's editor and son-in-law Jared Kushner and Sean "Softball" Hannity. Trump gave them the greenlight.
The attempt to bring Clinton's accusers into the prime seats was to rattle him. Cause in the family box, the Trumps would shake hands with the Clintons.
Conservative agitator Rudy Giuliani was hoping to have a moment in the sun.
"We were going to put the four women in the VIP box. We had it all set. We wanted to have them shake hands with Bill, to see if Bill would shake hands with them."
Frank J. Fahrenkopf the debate commission's co-chairman a former GOP chair said, "Hell no!"
He said if Trump brought these women into the family box, they would be removed from the venue.
"[But] we pulled it because we were going to have a big incident on national TV. Frank Fahrenkopf stopped us, and we weren't going to have a fight on national TV with the commission to start the debate," said Giuliani.
The women, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick, and Kathy Shelton were seated with the audience. They were no where close to the former president.

When Martha Raddatz questioned Trump on his infamous audio recording, he reacted by blaming Bill Clinton.
TRUMP: It was locker room talk, as I told you. That was locker room talk. I'm not proud of it. I am a person who has great respect for people, for my family, for the people of this country. And certainly, I'm not proud of it. But that was something that happened.
If you look at Bill Clinton, far worse. Mine are words, and his was action. His was what he's done to women. There's never been anybody in the history politics in this nation that's been so abusive to women. So you can say any way you want to say it, but Bill Clinton was abusive to women.
Hillary Clinton attacked those same women and attacked them viciously. Four of them here tonight. One of the women, who is a wonderful woman, at 12 years old, was raped at 12. Her client she represented got him off, and she's seen laughing on two separate occasions, laughing at the girl who was raped. Kathy Shelton, that young woman is here with us tonight.
So don't tell me about words. I am absolutely -- I apologize for those words. But it is things that people say. But what President Clinton did, he was impeached, he lost his license to practice law. He had to pay an $850,000 fine to one of the women. Paula Jones, who's also here tonight.
And I will tell you that when Hillary brings up a point like that and she talks about words that I said 11 years ago, I think it's disgraceful, and I think she should be ashamed of herself, if you want to know the truth.
It appears that Clinton brushed off Trump when he landed the attack on her.
CLINTON: Well, first, let me start by saying that so much of what he's just said is not right, but he gets to run his campaign any way he chooses. He gets to decide what he wants to talk about. Instead of answering people's questions, talking about our agenda, laying out the plans that we have that we think can make a better life and a better country, that's his choice.
When I hear something like that, I am reminded of what my friend, Michelle Obama, advised us all: When they go low, you go high.
And, look, if this were just about one video, maybe what he's saying tonight would be understandable, but everyone can draw their own conclusions at this point about whether or not the man in the video or the man on the stage respects women. But he never apologizes for anything to anyone.
CLINTON: He never apologized to Mr. and Mrs. Khan, the Gold Star family whose son, Captain Khan, died in the line of duty in Iraq. And Donald insulted and attacked them for weeks over their religion.
He never apologized to the distinguished federal judge who was born in Indiana, but Donald said he couldn't be trusted to be a judge because his parents were, quote, "Mexican."
He never apologized to the reporter that he mimicked and mocked on national television and our children were watching. And he never apologized for the racist lie that President Obama was not born in the United States of America. He owes the president an apology, he owes our country an apology, and he needs to take responsibility for his actions and his words.
After that exchange, it was over. No more mentions about it. Conservatives were hoping Trump kept the heat on her. It didn't turn out that way. Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, and Juanita Broaddrick weren't happy about the outcome.
"The women were outraged," said Giuliani. "They were in the holding room and ready to go. No one was pushing them. They volunteered. But I knew the minute we got pushback that we had gotten into their heads. [Hillary Clinton] was rattled. They were rattled."
