Woman who said Clinton raped her says she was never discredited
A woman who claims Bill Clinton raped her is furious that MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell referred to the charge as "discredited."I think Andrea Mitchell manage to give the story legs again by making and unsupported claim that the allegations were discredited. Lisa Myers who conducted the interview in 1999 says that nothing has come up to challenge the original report. Mitchell owes Broaddrick and Trump an apology.
"I look forward to [Andrea's] explanation exactly how I was discredited. Should be interesting," former Arkansas nursing home administrator Juanita Broaddrick said Thursday on Twitter. "[Andrea] Mitchell is Clinton lapdog, angry I exposed her bias to Clinton's."
Broaddrick maintains Clinton raped her in a hotel room in 1978.
Her story didn't surface until the final weeks of the 1992 presidential election, where the country's leading newsrooms, including the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times, ignored it.
Later, when the Monica Lewinsky affair hit the White House in 1998, Broaddrick's story resurfaced. Though she signed a sworn affidavit that year denying her claim against Clinton, she later denied the denial.
Broaddrick then restated her story in an NBC News interview taped on Jan. 20, 1999, one day after the president was impeached over the Lewinsky scandal. NBC held onto the interview for 35 days, and aired it shortly after Clinton was acquitted.
Broaddrick has since maintained she was sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton.
"I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73," she said on social media. "It never goes away."
