Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who accused former President Bill Clinton of rape in 1999, took to Twitter Wednesday to resurface allegations against both Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Broaddrick confirmed to multiple journalists that the Twitter account is hers.

Broaddrick allegation that Bill Clinton raped her emerged at the time of congressional impeachment proceedings over his extramarital affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Broaddrick has also said that Hillary Clinton approached her some time after the alleged assault and attempted to thank her for her support in what Broaddrick took as appreciation for her silence about the attack.

Through his lawyers, Clinton has repeatedly denied the allegations.

Broaddrick’s tweet comes a month before the Iowa caucus, and days after Bill has gone on the 2016 trail to stump for his wife’s presidential campaign. Hillary Clinton was loudly heckled at a Sunday campaign event about Broaddrick.
