MI6 spy found in holdall ‘hacked into secret data about Bill Clinton
MI6 spy Gareth Williams hacked into restricted information about former US President Bill Clinton, it has been claimed.
The 31-year-old codebreaker was discovered inside a padlocked bag in a bathtub at his London home in 2010, sparking a real-life mystery worthy of any 007 thriller.
Theories about the maths genius with a taste for cross-dressing included that he was killed by foreign spooks, eliminated by fellow agents and suffocated when a sex game went disastrously wrong.
Now it is claimed he illegally obtained a guest list for an event attended by Mr Clinton as a favour for a friend who was going.
A source told the Sun on Sunday: “The Clinton diary hack came at a time when Williams’s work with America was of the most sensitive nature.
“It was a diplomatic nightmare for Sir John Sawers, the new director of MI6 at the time.”
