Hillary Clinton used to claim rape victims have a “right to be believed.”
“I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault: Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed, and we’re with you,” Hillary’s website once read.
But after rape allegations resurfaced by Juanita Broaddrick, how did Hillary respond?
Her campaign deleted any reference to rape victims’ “right to be believed.”
Broaddrick has rarely discussed the rape due to the grim and graphic details.
No doubt the nature of the event was traumatic.
But with the rise of Hillary Clinton, who tried to silence Broaddrick, she feels the need to speak out about what kind of people the Clinton’s are.
In an interview, she recounts the event where Bill Clinton, then candidate for Arkansas Governor, pinned her down for a period of time.
She was relieved when she thought it was over and hoped he would leave the room.
Instead, she says, Bill turned to her and said, “I am going to do it again.”
And then he did.
The story begins when Broaddrick worked as a nursing home administrator and volunteered for Bill’s bid for governor.
Bill singled her out and filled her hopes of talking about the needs of the nursing homes and how to help the industry. That excited Broaddrick.
They set a meeting at a hotel coffee shop, only later to have Clinton request it be changed to Broaddrick’s hotel room.
“There are too many people [in the coffee shop]. It’s too crowded. There’s reporters and can we just meet in your room?” Clinton asked.
Shortly after Clinton entered the room, Bill advanced on her.
“He starts biting my lip..I told him ‘No'” she painfully recalls.
Clinton “forces me to down on the bed. And I just was very frightened, and I tried to get him away from me.”
Broaddrick took blame for the rape.
But all that changed in 1991 when she says she was at a meeting at the Riverfront Hotel in Little Rock and Clinton approached her.
Bill “immediately comes over to me with this gushing apology. Like ‘I’m sorry for what happened. I hope you can forgive me. I’m a family man now. I have a daughter. I’m a changed man. I would never do anything like that again.”
Broaddrick thought Bill was sincere. That is until he announced his run for president the following week.
“But I still have to thank him for that day because the blame then went off of me and on to him. And I knew it wasn’t my fault. I knew that I didn’t use good judgment, but I knew that the incident was no longer my fault,” Broaddrick concluded.
