Cody Shearer is a "a longtime Clinton family operative" who has been described as a "free-lance political fixer"[1] and "the Strangest Character in Hillary’s Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy." Cody Shearer allegedly worked with "Clinton enforcer Terry Lenzner to investigate and, at times, intimidate women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual harassment."[2]

Cody Shearer grew up in Southern California with his siblings Derek Shearer and twin Brooke Shearer. Their father, Lloyd Shearer, using the pen name Walter Scott, created the celebrity column in the front of Parade magazine, and their home, according to a 1971 Washington Post article, was "a kind of salon for political types and West Los Angeles' tennis-playing intelligentsia."[3]

Controversy

  • In 1998, Cody Shearer "was the subject of a State Department inspector general probe...after he allegedly conducted rogue negotiations that 'caused temporary diplomatic damage in Bosnia,' according to documents obtained by Citizens United through the Freedom of Information Act."[4]
  • In 1999, an article at the leftist magazine Slate described how news anchor Chris Matthews apologized after he implied that Cody Shearer had something to do with a bizarre encounter with former White House volunteer aide Kathleen Willey, who alleged in 1998 that Bill Clinton had sexually assaulted her on November 29, 1993.[5] According to the article, "...shortly before she was to testify in the Paula Jones trial, Willey reportedly had a frightening encounter with a jogger near her house in Richmond, Va.--a complete stranger who nonetheless seemed to know quite a bit about Willey's children, her car, and her cat."
