EXCLUSIVE - Wikileaks' lawyer goes to the White House: The night George Clooney took Julian Assange's stunning British lawyer to meet Obama at private screening of Monuments Men


  • Oscar winner has publicly denied dating Amal Alamuddin - and said they're working together on a 'satellite program over Syria'
  • But the couple looked close at private White House event last week
  • The pair were seen together at posh D.C. hotel following the event which Clooney's parents Nick and Nina also attended
  • Miss Alamuddin has been representing Julian Assange over his sexual assault extradition proceedings
  • She was voted No.1 on London's 'Hottest Barrister' list last year
  • The White House will make no comment on Miss Alamuddin's attendance



George Clooney has taken striking British barrister Amal Alamuddin – who represents WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange - to meet President Obama at the White House, MailOnline can reveal.
In a move that will provoke yet more questions over his close friendship with the human rights lawyer, Oscar winner George, 52, took Miss Alamuddin to the private screening of his latest movie Monuments Men last week, in a group that included his parents Nick and Nina Clooney.

The stunning brunette is currently representing Assange - who has made no secret of his anger at President Obama's White House - in his extradition proceedings with Sweden.

Friends in high places: George Clooney speaks at the private White House screening of his new film, Monuments Men on Tuesday, February 18, with President Barack Obama watching on


The Oscar winner and the lawyer were said to be looking extremely close at the event, and although it's not known whether Miss Alamuddin met President Obama, Clooney is pictured standing by the Commander-in-Chief.
Just hours after the small screening on Tuesday, February 18, Clooney and Miss Alamuddin were pictured standing intimately together at the Round Robin and Scotch Bar at the Willard Hotel in Washington D.C. in a group that included Clooney’s pal and co-star Matt Damon and his wife Luciana, and fellow actor and co-star Bill Murray.

An onlooker at the bar told MailOnline: 'They looked very much together, George had his arm around her and she appeared to be a girlfriend.

'They were in a small group of about 10 people, it's really a small venue and there were maybe only about 30 people in the bar, and they were sitting at a table off to the side.

Bizarrely, the group can all be seen wearing mardi-gras style necklaces in the snapshot.

Miss Alamuddin was not on the official White House guest list that was issued last week.

However, in pictures seen by MailOnline, Miss Alamuddin - who donned a slinky black dress for the night - beams as she sips on champagne while having her hair done ahead of the screening, with Luciana Damon and Lysa Heslev looking on.

Striking: British barrister Amal Amaluddin speaks three languages and was last year voted London's 'hottest barrister'




The presence of Julian Assange's lawyer in the White House, even on a movie star's arm for a private screening, is bound to have put the White House on tenterhooks. 
Last June, Assange attacked President Obama and the White House in an open letter over its treatment of fugitive NSA leaker Edward Snowden.
When asked about Miss Alamuddin's presence at the screening, the White House press office had no official comment. 

However, two White House sources told MailOnline that Miss Alamuddin came to the event with Clooney, according to their colleagues who were present.
One said she and Clooney were the talk of the junior staff on the next day since they had been seen cozying up to each other as they arrived, walking behind the star's parents, Nick and Nina Clooney.
The film follows an allied group, the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program, tasked with finding and saving pieces of art and other culturally important items before their destruction by Hitler during World War II.

And the official guest list from the White House shows just what an intimate screening it was. Invited were Clooney, his parents NIck and Nina, Bill Murray, Matt Damon, Grant Heslov, Robert Edsel, writer of the book The Monuments Men and Harry Ettlinger, a surviving member of the original Monuments Men group.
Bill Burns, Deputy Secretary of State, was on the list as was Heather Higginbottom, Deputy Secretary of State and David Wade, State Department Chief of Staff. They were joined by Richard Stengel, Under Secretary of State for Public Affairs, Evan Ryan, Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs and Bill McHugh, Secretary of the Army.
Sara Bloomfield, Director the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, was invited as was Rabbi Jack Moline, Agudas Achim Congregation, Susan Hildreth, Director of the Institute of Museum and Library Services and David Ferriero, Archivist of the United States

Miss Alamuddin, who works from London's Doughty Street Chambers, specialises in international law, human rights, extradition and criminal law.  She speaks three languages - French, Arabic and English - and was voted No. 1 on London's Hottest Barrister list of 2013.
She has been appointed to a number of UN commissions including as adviser to Special Envoy Kofi Annan on Syria and her high profile human rights cases have included representing  former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.

She is currently representing Assange in his extradition proceedings with Sweden. The Australian hacker and rogue online publisher is currently wanted for questioning in Sweden in a sexual assault case.
When the UK’s Supreme Court turned down his appeal of an order to enforce the European arrest warrant against him, Assange fled to the Ecuadorian embassy in London. Ecuador granted him political asylum in June 2012.
If he should leave the embassy, the British government will likely send him to Sweden. From there, Assange fears, he could be extradited later to the United States to face even more fearsome charges.
His U.S. criminal case stems from his 2010 decision to publish a collection of American diplomatic cables – the largest cache of classified documents ever made public at once – on the WIkileaks website. 

Assange received the material from Bradley Manning, an American soldier who was later convicted of violating the federal Espionage Act. A judge sentenced Manning last year to 35 years in Fort Leavenworth military prison, although he could be paroled in just eight years.

The day after his sentencing, the disgraced Army private announced that he had changed his name to Chelsea, and that he wanted to live as a woman.
From his sanctuary in the Ecuadorian Embassy, Assange wrote an open letter last June on the occasion of his first anniversary in hiding, slamming the Obama White House for its treatment of the fugitive NSA leaker Edward Snowden.
'The word "traitor" has been thrown around a lot in recent days,' Assange wrote. 'But who is really the traitor here?'
'Who was it who promised a generation "hope" and "change," only to betray those promises with dismal misery and stagnation? … Who is it that promised to preside over The Most Transparent Administration in history, only to crush whistleblower after whistleblower with the bootheel of espionage charges?’
Oscar winner Clooney and Miss Alamuddin were first pictured together after enjoying dinner at the Berners Tavern in London last October and then seen sharing a cab as they left the restaurant.
However, just days later, Clooney was at pains to stress he was still single after splitting with long-time love Stacy Keibler last summer. 

After being linked with actress Katie Holmes and Croatian model Monika Jakisic as well as Miss Alamuddin, Clooney told People magazine in October: ‘Three different stories in three weeks. I should be an athlete. But, no of course, it's all made up.’

According to Clooney's spokesman, Stan Rosenfield, the actor finally felt moved to put a stop to the gossip.
‘George wants this Monika crap to stop. He wants Katie to get a break, and he wants Amal to be able to prosecute cases without being hassled because she had one dinner with George and four others … I even asked George if these [rumors] were true and he said he never comments on his private life, but in the interest of stopping the harassment of all three of these women, he felt he should.'
A source close to the actor added: "George is not dating, nor has he dated Monika in several years, nor is he dating Katie Holmes – he simply hugged her at a premiere – nor is he the new boyfriend of Amal, who he is working with on a [surveillance] satellite program over Syria.

Am I right in thinking the Daily Mail is based in the UK? I'm curious to know their reputation as far as truthfulness and reliability. Are they the equivalent of our daily papers like the New York Post or are they more like the Enquirer or the Star? Can anyone in the UK enlighten me?

Well, Lizzy. where I start?

Some would regard it as a middle-of-the-road mainly Conservative paper. Others might have a different view! Used to be called the housewives' choice of paper when I was on PR.

There are other papers that people in the UK would read which they would possibly regard as more of a tabloid, but at this moment in time the Mailonline is the most widely read online paper in the world - and for many people a guilty secret! ('You're not reading that stuff, are you?!' Shock, horror)

If they're dating, bully for them both and I hope they find a way to make a real relationship. If. I'm not convinced they are. She's involved in enough matters that are of interest to the White House that it may well have been a way for her to back-channel some sort of dialogue or negotiations, particularly if there were members of the State Department there.

I can see George helping with those kinds of arrangements.

But the two scenarios are not mutually exclusive.

I agree Annemarie. George has already had to deny romance rumors once. Maybe Lysa was asked to make her setting private so she can feel free to post pictures of her friends and family without a fan finding them and starting rumors again. Amal has received more publicity in celebrity circles in the past few months just being a friend then she probably ever would have expected. Hiding her social network goings on for more privacy would make sense.
In my opinion Amal is more 'friend' material than 'girlfriend'. George would have had to go through quite a metamorphosis since Stacy to make that jump I think.
But now that the Daily Mail has posted the question again George may feel compelled to deny a romance for the same reason he did before. If he doesn't maybe there's something to it.

Deborah - George and Obama are very good friends. I'm sure if there were any objections to her being at the White House, George wouldn't have brought her. There are many issues other than Wikileaks that the president might have wanted to discuss with her. Or maybe it was a completely non-political evening and she was just there as George's date/friend/whatever.

Here I go again....flip flop time, I've had a change of heart.....

I think, George is the type of guy who likes to "DELIGHT" his freinds and family.
If an opportunity presented itself where by he was able to delight his friend, Amal, he would not hesitate to invite her.  It would have been a two pronged invite “Come see my movie, meet the Obama’s and have a snoop round The White House”.

I think that would be a very thoughtful thing to do, and I imagine very George! (in my dreams, anyway)

Sometimes it’s nice to extend an invitation to ppl who do not operate in that/your environment.   Remind me of when I was a child and I would get to go into the pilots cockpit... I was thrilled skinny  Very Happy bounce cheers

I am leaning to the side that they may be secretly seeing each other, but I have to admit, she is one pretty lady. She certainly looks better than my fat butt sliding up beside him. However, given the opportunity, I would be happy to be the topic of speculation on this website. You can talk all day long about are they or aren't they? Joanna can lead the parade of hoorays for ktsue2002 leading the way. Maybe Melbert and It's Me and others will remember my witty comments as I am ridiculed by the media. "Who is that fat woman with George Clooney?" In the event that pigs fly, you will suddenly note my absence on this site and I will give the peace sign to you gals. My social network profiles will be bye bye but hopefully you will be happy for me, as a pipe dream was revealed for a kidney patient.

WWHS - If she were anyone else I'd say you were right. Don't we all wish we could be that friend? But considering the kerfuffle in the press the last time they were seen together, I don't think bringing her along could have been quite so casual - he's too concerned for how being seen with him could affect her professional reputation.

......

Last week, Clooney and Damon held a private screening of Monuments Men at the White House alongside President Barack Obama and other fans and politicos.
Also reportedly in attendance at the screening? Clooney's British lawyer pal and once-rumored love interest Amal Alamuddin. Clooney and Alamuddin, who represents WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, were supposedly spotted together at the screening, adding to fuel to the fire that they could be more than just friends.
Clooney and Alamuddin were first spotted together in London back in October 2013. Clooney [url=http://de.eonline.com/news/514732/ http:/www.eonline.com/news/475745/george-clooney-is-single-i-m-not-dating-katie-holmes-monika-jakisic-or-amal-alamuddin]shot down[/url] the romance rumors at the time as "all made up."

Re: George Clooney takes Amal Alamuddin on a date to the White House

I think it was mentioned on the other thread that this was poster toska....I think the person who tweeted the blurry photo is her "inside" source....


Feel bad that we posted the photos in the first place....it is distracting from his op ed piece....

I don't feel bad about the photos. If George was really dumb enough to take a secret date to the White House and then to a public bar . . . I think he can expect it not to remain secret for much longer.

I do feel bad for her, though. If she's not dating him, it's going to be an awfully difficult few weeks.

Silly girl - I doubt very much that the media got those photos from this site. Don't forget where WE got them from - Lysa Heslov's Instagram page. I'm sure this isn't the only site that picked them up before she went private.

I'm sure she didn't.  The pic of them at the bar where you can see Matt Damon wasn't on this site.

Actually it is== only the photo the girl tweeted was cropped (the tweet is on the white house thread)....which is why I think she is the source for the reporter...

Yes, the cropped version is here (and on other sites) but I didn't think the uncropped picture was on this site.  Maybe I missed it.

But in any case, I understand from the reporting that the Daily Mail spoke to a person who was at the bar . . . I'd say it was a pretty safe bet that that was the lady who tweeted the picture in the first place - and also gave them a copy of that picture. The Mirror (who also reported the story, almost word for word the same as the Mail here) credited the tweeter as the source of the picture.

The picture of Amal getting ready, which came from Lysa Heslov's account, may or may not have been taken from this site.  That I can't be sure of.

Dating or not, is really going to be hard on her. The Lawyer's Bar Association will want answers on the basis of the ethical rule of conduct between a lawyer and a client. I wonder if the Barr Association has gotten word of this. And also how will this
affect the Obamas. Am sure some lawyers are already planning some evil legal strategy against them.

Am sure am not he only one thinking in legal terms here.

I think George would prolly appreciate it if the threads on these speculations were deleted.

As a loyal fan and would be nice to be a friend too, I would. No matter what the truth may be, bad things won't happen because of the threads if they are not here.

I know you may all disagree with me, but its what I would do. For George.

Sorry. Just a thought.

I think that the attorney is smart enough to not go some place that could cause her problems. I also think that George also would never cause a problem for her or the President. I believe this was a film viewing nothing more than that.

There are many issues other than Wikileaks  that the president might have wanted to discuss with her. Or maybe it was a completely non-political evening and she was just there as George's date/friend/whatever.

@Lizzy...just for the record, I don't think you can call George and President Obama "good friends" in the true sense of that statement but they have worked together on some issues such as Darfur and Sudan and George raised a lot of money for the President's re-election campaign. It's more of a "working relationship" than a friendship in the true sense of the word, although they did play pick up basketball a few times!  Very Happy 

I would think the more immediate issue that would have been discussed is her representing the former Prime Minister of Ukraine and her recent release/possibility of running for president in the upcoming elections there in May. Julian Assange isn't anyone's primary concern right now...he's kind of "old news" if you get right down to it. The President has pressing issues and his number one priority would change constantly, probably daily, depending upon the conditions around the world on any given day.
