While discussing Bill Clinton’s sex scandals in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday night, Donald Trump brought up old rape allegations against the former president.

Hannity mentioned Bill Clinton’s accusers while talking about a New York Times story detail Trump’s past behavior with women.

“Are they going to interview Juanita Broaddrick?” Hannity asked. “Are they going to interview Paula Jones? Are they going to interview Kathleen Willey? In one case, it’s about exposure. In another case, it’s about groping and fondling and touching against a woman’s will.”

“And rape,” Trump jumped in to say.

“And rape,” Hannity then said.

“And big settlements, massive settlements,” Trump continued. “And impeachment for lying, and losing your law license. You know, he lost his law license, OK? He couldn’t practice law. And you don’t read about this on Clinton.”

Trump then said that the New York Times and ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos are “pipe organs for Hillary Clinton.”

“I’m in a pretty rough business — real estate — I meet some tough people, but I have never seen lies and deception like I see in — not only with the people, not only with the politicians, but when you’re in politics it is a deceiving, it’s really a pretty rough profession,” Trump added. “The political press, worse than anything else is the political press.”

Juanita Broaddrick accused Bill Clinton of rape in 1999, and recently resurfaced the allegations in January. Bill Clinton has denied the allegations through his lawyers.
