Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who has accused Bill Clinton of violently raping her in her hotel room in Little Rock in 1978, was not pleased when she saw the former president’s interview with NBC that aired Monday. \
In the interview, Craig Melvin asked Clinton if he views his relationship with Monica Lewinsky differently in the era of #MeToo.
He said he didn’t, and that he didn’t believe he owed Ms. Lewinsky a personal apology, adding that “This was litigated 20 years ago. Two-thirds of the American people sided with me.”
He also made sure to sneak in his opinion on the current president as he blamed the press for twisting the story about Monica Lewinsky, something that former presidents traditionally do not do publically.
“A lot of the facts have been omitted to make the story work,” he claimed. “I think partly because they’re frustrated that they got all these serious allegations against the current occupant of the Oval Office and his voters don’t seem to care.”
It is well understood that, despite the balance of power, his relationship with Lewinsky was consensual. Neither he nor Melvin said a word about the actual rape allegations made against him over the years, however, a fact which Broaddrick finds to be quite conspicuous.
“I can’t believe there is not a reporter out there,” Broaddrick told Breitbart News in an interview following the broadcast. “I mean, this person had a perfect opportunity today to ask Bill Clinton about the allegations of sexual assault and rape.”
“Why doesn’t NBC have me on to discuss the rape? Of course, they are the same network that held my 1999 interview until after the impeachment hearing.”
She is referring to an interview she gave with the network in which she gave her full account of the horrific attack she claims to have suffered at the hands of the then-future President of the United States.
The interview was notoriously aired a full 35 days after Clinton’s impeachment hearings, a fact Broaddrick and many others see to be a serious failure on the part of NBC.
“You know, his interview took away so much from the real victims over the years,” Broadrick said. “The victims against which he perpetrated the sexual assault and harassment and of course raping me.
“I’m not concerned with his consensual sex. I care about him being brought to justice for the crimes he committed against me and the others. That’s what I care about.”
A missed opportunity by the American media to grill the ex-POTUS about his many alleged sexual assault victims during the so-called #MeToo era? Who would have thought it?
