Juanita Broaddrick Resurfaces Bill Clinton Rape Allegations On Twitter

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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
