Hillary Clinton Doesn’t Feel Obligated To Defend Bill Against Rape Allegations

Incredulous at Cuomo's question, Hillary simply said she felt no obligation to defend Bill against Trump's remarks, stating, “I know that's exactly what he is fishing for. I'm not going to be responding.” While the former First Lady might think Trump is just “fishing” for controversy, many Americans feel the allegations against her husband merit investigation and, if they are finally confirmed, justice:

“While Bill Clinton has been accused of rape, along with groping and affairs – and his sexual history with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky is well known – the ‘rape' accusation had yet to be used in the political campaign by someone as prominent as the presumptive Republican nominee.

Trump, however, has pushed the boundaries of political discourse this campaign season and been close to leveling the ‘rape' charge at Bill Clinton before.

In January he posted a video that linked Bill Clinton to both Lewinsky and accused rapist Bill Cosby.

The campaign video was released around the time that Broaddrick, who accused Bill Clinton of rape, emerged on social media.

Broaddrick has accused Clinton of raping her in an Arkansas hotel room in 1978 when he was the state's governor, saying he left her with a swollen lip and some advice: ‘You better get some ice on that.'

And while Hillary Clinton was campaigning on a platform of women's issues, Broaddrick says she knew about the sexual assault and tried to cover it up.

Broaddrick tweeted in January that ‘I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away.'

A day before, she had said she was ‘dreading seeing my abuser on TV,' as Bill Clinton was campaigning for his wife, the Democratic front-runner, in New Hampshire, ‘but his physical appearance reflects ghosts of the past,' which she said were ‘catching up.'

The former nursing home administrator made her allegations public in 1999.

She said Bill Clinton, when campaigning for Arkansas governor in 1978, raped her in Little Rock, Arkansas.

At the time, noted the Hill Newspaper, who authenticated Broaddrick's social media account, Clinton's personal attorney David E. Kendall strongly denied the charges.

‘Any allegation that the president assaulted Ms. Broaddrick more than 20 years ago is absolutely false, he said in a statement from February 1999, reported the Washington Post.

‘Beyond that we're not going to comment,' Kendall added.

Broaddrick said she planned to yell the allegations louder as she doesn't want to see another Clinton in the White House.

‘I've been quiet for too long, and now with the possibility of [Hillary Clinton] being the Democratic nominee and possibly president, I feel the need to get involved,' she told the Hill.

Broaddrick said in an interview in January that she was happy that Donald Trump, whom she supports, brought up Bill Clinton's sexual past.

‘I'm glad someone did,' she said. ‘Everyone has been hanging back and most of the mainstream media won't approach it, but it's something that should be talked about.'

Broaddrick said she was a Trump fan because, ‘he says the things I like to hear.'

This week, she defended him again.

‘The NY Times should do equal time investigating [Hillary's] enabling of Bill Clinton's sexual assaults on women,' Broaddrick tweeted.

Hillary Clinton's decision to advocate for victims of sexual assault has persuaded some of her husband's accusers, including the three mentioned by Hannity, to resurface.

Willey, a former White House volunteer, claims Bill Clinton groped her in an Oval Officer hallway in 1993 when she came to him tearfully seeking a paid job.

Jones settled a lawsuit with the former president after she accused him of sexual assault back in 1991 when he was Governor of  Arkansas.”
