Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appeared on MSNBC Tuesday, where she ironically decided to weigh in on the current sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Now, we all know why this is hilarious, right? Here she is, speaking out against someone accused of sexual crimes, calling for a full investigation, all the while being married to a man who had multiple women come forward and accuse him of rape and harassment.
However, after Hillary weighed in, one of hubby Bill’s accusers had a little something to say.
Asked by host Rachel Maddow if Democrats should play the kind of “hardball” Republicans played with blocking the Merrick Garland nomination, or “just go through regular order with whoever Trump has to put up next if the Kavanaugh nomination fails,” Clinton called for neither “unilateral disarmament or Defcon-10.” What she really wanted to see, she made clear, was an investigation.
“I remember back in the Thomas hearing when Senator Byrd was asked what he was going to do, and he said in a situation like this we should give the benefit of the doubt to the court and the country,” she said. “And that’s what the Republicans should be doing right now, from the White House down Pennsylvania avenue to the Senate, give the benefit of the doubt to the court and the country. And that means have an investigation that will then lead to a hearing that will then lead to a vote if appropriate.”Trending:
Republicans have offered Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, the chance to testify in a public or private hearing on Monday, an offer her lawyer currently says she will not accept, demanding an FBI investigation first. An investigation into Ford’s accusation by the FBI, Clinton told MSNBC, is “a reasonable request.”
“The White House could answer [Ford’s request] very quickly by asking the FBI to reopen its background check and to take into account the accusation that’s been made and to gather the evidence about what can be known. So far, they haven’t done that,” she said. “And as someone who has watched this process unfold over many years, there does have to be some direction given to the FBI to pursue an investigation.”Advertisement - story continues below
Clinton’s comments have elicited some strong responses, including from Bill Clinton accuser Juanita Broaddrick, who maintains that Bill raped her and Hillary threatened her to remain quiet:
Broaddrick has maintained for decades that former President Bill Clinton raped her back in 1978. Back in 1999, NBC aired an interview where Broaddrick made the allegation against the president, which the network conveniently only aired after the impeachment hearing was over. But there’s no media bias or anything.
For Hillary to claim she’s a feminist who stands for women’s rights, all the while she’s spent the majority of her life attempting to silence women who were abused by her husband is not only the height of hypocrisy, it shows forth a complete lack of human decency on her part.
Shame, shame, Hillary.
