Amid Kavnaugh Fury, Clinton Accuser Juanita Broaddrick Still Wants An FBI Investigation Into Her Alleged Rape

With all of the kerfuffle taking place over sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who accused President Bill Clinton of raping her in the 1970s, wants the FBI to investigate her claims. Broaddrick said the Democrats have a "double standard" for wanting a probe into the Kavanaugh allegations but not her allegations against Clinton, Fox News reported.

Broaddick said Democrats are taking Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick's allegations seriously but didn't give her the same courtesy. 

“It’s not politically advantageous for them to circle around me and support me,” Broaddrick told Fox News. “These are the same people that refused to read my deposition with Ken Starr back in 1999. Not one Democrat would read it. [Chuck] Schumer, [Dianne] Feinstein, [Dick] Durbin—they completely turned their backs on me.”

Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr interviewed Broaddrick in 1999 as part of the sexual misconduct investigation brought up by Paula Jones. Broaddrick signed a sworn affidavit at first, denying the rape ever occurred. When Starr offered her immunity, she decided to tell her story.

Broaddrick shared her story during a 1999 interview with Dateline NBC. She said she met Clinton in 1978 when he was Arkansas Attorney General. He had made a gubernatorial campaign stop at the nursing home she was in. According to Broaddrick, Clinton told her to give his Little Rock campaign office a call if she was ever in town. She did just that the next time she was in the capitol for a nursing home conference. 

The two met at her hotel room where the rape allegedly took place. 

Here's her story:

Broaddrick took to Twitter to demand a probe into her allegations, something she's been vocal about since the 2016 presidential election, when Hillary Clinton said victims of sexual assault come forward and be believed. That's when Broaddrick reminded the presidential nominee of her husband's alleged rape.

Although the statute of limitations ran out on Broaddrick's case, she said she hopes the investigation will keep Clinton from receiving "perks" that he obtains as a former president:

Broaddrick says she has more corroborating evidence than Kavanaugh's accusers.

“I have so many witnesses. The lady that was traveling with me found me 30 minutes after the rape, and then I have five other people I told,” she told Fox News. “You need something that can link the abuser to the abused. And there was everything to corroborate this rape.”

Juanita Broaddrick did not immediately respond to Townhall's request for comment.
