Lillian McEwen breaks her 19-year silence about Justice Clarence Thomas

Lillian McEwen talks about Clarence ThomasFor nearly two decades, Lillian McEwen has been silent -- a part of history, yet absent from it.

Lillian McEwen was that woman. At the time, she was on good terms with Thomas. The former assistant U.S. attorney and Senate Judiciary Committee counsel had dated him for years, even attending a March 1985 White House state dinner as his guest.

O.J. Simpson's appeal denied The Nevada Supreme Court refused to overturn former football star O.J. Simpson's armed robbery and kidnapping convictions stemming from a Las Vegas hotel room heist at gunpoint.
