Democrats are suddenly up in arms over sexual assault allegations against politicians, which is ironic given the fact that they elected known-rapist Bill Clinton to the White House twice in the 1990s. Now, however, one of Clinton’s rape victims has reemerged to drop a bomb on him that he never saw coming.
Juanita Broaddrick has said for decades that Clinton raped her in an Arkansas hotel room back in 1978, yet he has never faced any repercussions for this and his other sex crimes. This week, Broaddrick spoke out to explain a way that Clinton could still be held accountable for his actions.
“In the case of Bill Clinton, he’s got a post-presidency… he’s still paid, for instance, a presidential pension from the US taxpayers — are there things you’d like to see still done in his life that would affect him?” a reporter asked Broaddrick, according to Conservative 101.
“Oh yes. Everything that he’s given as being a past president, with the exception of his secret service things… I think that all financial things that are given to him should be removed,” Broaddrick responded. “Bill Clinton is a horrible person, and so is Hillary. If people out there have allegations against him that have not been brought to the light of day, now is the time.”
She went on to say that she’s happy that after decades of being ignored, the media is finally starting to take her claims against Clinton seriously.
“We’re in a new era, and it’s exciting,” she said.
This comes after Broaddrick announced that she is writing a book in which she will fully detail the rape she suffered at the hands of Clinton as well as what happened afterwards.
“The time has come for me to talk about my life and abuse in full,” Broaddrick wrote on Twitter. “I am working on a book with [journalist Nick Lulli] to set the record straight on what Bill Clinton did to me.”
The book’s title, “You’d Better Put Some Ice On That,” refers to what Broaddrick claims Clinton told her immediately after the rape. The subtitle of the book is, “How I survived being raped by Bill Clinton.”
“This is the part that always stays in my mind – the way he put on his sunglasses,” Broaddrick told the Wall Street Journal in 1999. “Then he looked at me and said ‘You better put some ice on that’. Then he left.”
The Clintons are undoubtedly in panic mode about this, but we’re glad that they’re finally getting what they deserve!
