With numerous public figures having their lives destroyed in recent weeks, Hillary Clinton was hoping people would forget her husband Bill has been accused of rape in the past. That’s why it came as bad news to her this week when Juanita Broaddrick, who has long said that Bill raped her in the 1970s, reemerged to drop a new bombshell.
Breitbart reported that Broaddrick is calling for BC News Anchor Andrea Mitchell to apologize to her for discrediting her. Broaddrick said that Mitchell “very definitely” owes her an apology for claiming Broaddrick’s highly credible accusations had been “discredited.”
“She was trying to discredit me herself,” Broaddrick said of Mitchell’s actions. “She just had her say that morning on the Today Show and she just won’t back down from it even though they did remove her words.”
Broaddrick said this on Sunday while appearing
“Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and Philadelphia’s NewsTalk 990 AM. She was referring to a May Today Show segment in which Mitchell was reporting on an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity in which Donald Trump utilized the word “rape” while discussing accusations against Bill Clinton regarding women.
“Donald Trump using that word unprompted, during an interview last night with Fox News’ Sean Hannity,” Mitchell said. “Bringing up a discredited and long-denied accusation against former president Bill Clinton, dating back to 1978 when he was Arkansas Attorney General.”
Neither Mitchell or NBC offered any evidence of Broaddrick’s claim being discredited. Broaddrick is promoting her new book You’d Better Put Some Ice On That: How I Survived Being Raped by Bill Clinton, which is due out on January 3.
“I just think it is finally time,” Broaddrick responded when asked why she decided to write the book. “When I did my interview with Dateline in 1999 I had no idea that I would ever write a book. But now there are so many people, Aaron, that have no idea who I am and what my allegations were. And I go through this in complete detail in my book. Explaining how I was harassed. How I was denied the voice that President Trump finally gave me.”
