Kato Comes Clean

12/14/2006 4:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kato Kaelin said something pretty interesting on his way out of Hyde last night. Yes my friends, Kato actually got into Hyde and maybe that's the lead.

But on his way out, someone stopped the man who was in O.J. Simpson's guesthouse the night Simpson banged into the air conditioner and dropped his murder glove.

Kaelin was asked about Simpson's disgusting book, "If I Did It." His response -- "What do you mean 'if'?"

The criminal and civil trials were my life for two years. I covered it for the CBS affiliate in L.A. and it was the only topic in my life. Trust me, Kato knew a lot more than he told. Remember, he claims he was awakened by a thump that shook the walls of the guesthouse -- that was Simpson hitting the A.C. (no, not Cowlings, the air conditioner).

Remember; before the murders, Simpson and Kato drove to McDonald's together. There are a lot of stories about what they did and what they said during that McRun. At the very least, O.J. Simpson was in a rage after getting snubbed by Nicole, and he was always willing to rant even when people weren't in the mood to listen. Kato the houseguest was obligated to listen.

And one more thing -- there's no doubt in my mind that Kato heard a lot of commotion after Simpson left for the airport. Double murder is a messy business, and there was plenty to clean and discard that night. I don't think Kato was part of the cleaning crew, but I think he knew exactly who was.

So, when Kato nixed the word "if" last night, it's the most honest he's been about the murders in a dozen years. By the way, he's a really nice guy, but I can't believe he got into Hyde.

Part of the "cleaning crew"? You are implying there were others present or came to aid Mr Simpson, ala his daughter or others nearby? Interesting....wondering what the motivation, or incentive would have been for Kato to remain so silent and polite about everything while under Oath. He being such a "nice" guy wouldnt the Police or Prosecutors been able to "scare" it out of his such niceness? If not than he is a man with a capacity to hold things inside very deeply and apparently for a very long time. Maybe he should now write a Book "if I did know who did it", or maybe now "I do know who did it".

I don't think he was any part of the killings. I think he knows OJ is guilty just like the rest of us. I think that unless there had been a video tape of him doing the killing he would have been found not guilty. That trial went on way too long and those jurors just wanted it to be over so the easiest thing to do was to find him not guilty. It's not Kato's fault or Mark Furmans or Marsha Clarks. It's the justice systems for letting it turn into a 9 month long circus.

Come on. Get off OJ's back, he is an innocent man who lost his ex-wife to a brutal murder. Have some sense of compassion for the guy. He is one of the greatest football players of all time and that is what's important.

Sorry, but you are wrong. Kato did not testify that "he was awakened by a thump that shook the walls of the guesthouse".

He testified that he was on the telephone at the time talking to a friend. He heard a loud thump that shook his room and asked the friend if there had been an earthquake.

Get it right.

WTF???
If he knew anything he should have said so on the stand. He is as guilty as OJ. Too bad OJ got off, because it would have been just as sweet to see this guy do time for perjury and obstruction of justice. But he such a "great guy". Yeah, right. He doesn't feel like he has any responsibility for what happened. Kato is a disgusting, despicable liar. Isn't he on some sort of court show? Like this fool knows anything about justice.

Harvey, your opinion of him puts your judgment in question. What a shame.
