Juanita Broaddrick – who famously accused former President Bill Clinton of raping her – is ripping into Hillary Clinton for what she says is an “evil compact” made by the two to cover up sexual crimes and indiscretions.
“Shame on you, Hillary, that’s disgusting,” Broaddrick said of Hillary basing her presidential campaign, in part, on women’s issues. “Shame on you, Hillary. It’s time to be truthful.”
Broaddrick stayed out of the headlines for nearly a decade, but she made the statements in an interview Sunday night on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio.”
During her interview with Klein, she accused Hillary of concealing her husband’s crimes.
“I think she has always known everything about him,” she said. “I think they have this evil compact between the two of them that they each know what the other does and overlook it. And go right on. And cover one for the other.”
‘That lying look’
Broaddrick said Hillary met with her in 1978 and indicated the purported rape must remain a secret. But Clinton’s accuser said she “almost died” when she caught a glimpse of a Hillary campaign ad that claimed to support women who accuse men of sexual assault.
“You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed. We’re with you,” Hillary told “every survivor of sexual assault” in her ad:
On Sunday, just as Klein was interviewing Broaddrick, Hillary tweeted: “Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported.”
Some responses to Hillary’s tweet included:
- “Cough *Juanita Broaddrick* Cough”
- “Except for those who survived your husband?”
- “Even Bill’s accusers?”
- “I thought you wanted us to call them ‘bimbo eruptions’?”
- “Does that promise come with an ice bag?”
Broaddrick told Klein: “Aaron, the only thing that I would like to say is I hope that someday these two people, these people that I feel like are so evil, will be brought to justice.
“You know, if I can help in that, I will. But these are not good people for America.”
Broaddrick said Hillary’s performance at the October Benghazi hearing compelled her to come forward with her story. She recognized a certain familiar expression.
“[W]hen I saw that look on her face. It was the very same look back in 1978. That lying look.”
Broaddrick is concerned about a President Hillary Clinton because, she says, “she lies. Just like she did in the Bengahzi hearing. She lies. She covers up. Just to imagine her in that position would not be good for America.”
Listen to Aaron Klein’s interview with Broaddrick:
Clinton meets Broaddrick in her hotel room
She said Clinton noticed her during a campaign stop.
“He would just sort of insinuate, you know when you are in Little Rock let’s get together. Let’s talk about the industry,” she recalled. “Let’s talk about the needs of the nursing homes, and I was very excited about that.”
In the spring, Broaddrick attended a convention in Little Rock, along with her friend and nursing employee Norma Rogers. The two women stayed in a room at the Camelot Hotel.
When Broaddrick checked in with the Clinton campaign, she was given instructions to contact Clinton at his private apartment.
“I called his apartment and he answered,” she said. “And he said ‘Well, why don’t we meet in the Camelot Hotel coffee room and we can get together there and talk. And I said ‘That would be fine.'”
But then Clinton decided to meet her inside her room, rather than at the hotel coffee shop.
“A time later and I’m not sure how long it was, he called my room, which he said he would do when he got to the coffee shop,” she said. “And he said ‘There are too many people down here. It’s too crowded. There’s reporters and can we just meet in your room?'”
She continued, “And it sort of took me back a little bit, Aaron. But I did say, ‘OK, I’ll order coffee to the room,’ which I did and that’s when things sort of got out of hand. And it was very unexpected. It was, you might even say, brutal. With the biting of my lip.”
A lip-biting fetish
Broaddrick didn’t go into detail about the alleged rape, as she said most of the information has been reported through the years.
In 1999, she said Clinton kissed her and began biting her lip as she tried to pull away. Then, she claims, Clinton pushed her down onto the bed. She told NBC’s “Dateline”: “I just was very frightened, and I tried to get away from him and I told him ‘No,’ that I didn’t want this to happen but he wouldn’t listen to me. … It was a real panicky, panicky situation. I was even to the point where I was getting very noisy, you know, yelling to ‘Please stop.'”
At that point, she says, Clinton held her right shoulder down and continued biting her lip.
After the assault, she told “Dateline,” “[Clinton] got up and straightened himself, and I was crying at the moment and he walks to the door, and calmly puts on his sunglasses. And before he goes out the door he says ‘You better get some ice on that.’ And he turned and went out the door.”
In Sunday’s interview, Broaddrick recalled how her friend returned to their room to look for her after she noticed Broaddrick had been absent from the convention.
“I was in a state of shock afterward,” she told Klein. “And I know my nurse came back to the room to check on me because she hadn’t heard from me. … She came up and it was devastating to her and to me to find me in the condition that I was in.
“We really did not know what to do. We sat and talked and she got ice for my mouth. … It was four times the size that it should be. And she got ice for me and we decided then I just wanted to go home. I just wanted to get out of there, which we did.”
Broaddrick’s claim that Clinton bit her lip repeatedly is reminiscent of a similar charge by former Miss America pageant winner Elizabeth Ward Gracen, who had a consensual affair with Clinton. Gracen reported that Clinton bit her lip during their sexual encounters.
Hillary and Bill approach Broaddrick
After three weeks had passed, Broaddrick told Klein, Hillary approached her at a private fundraiser.
“And so then about that time, I see them coming through the kitchen area. And some people there are pointing to me,” she recalled. “He goes one direction and she comes directly to me. Then panic sort of starting to set in with me. And I thought, ‘Oh my God, what do I do now?'”
Broaddrick told Klein that Hillary said, “It’s so nice to meet you.”
“And [Hillary] said, ‘I just want you to know how much Bill and I appreciate the things you do for him.’ And I just stood there, Aaron. I was sort of you might say shell-shocked.
“And she said, ‘Do you understand? Everything you do.’
“She tried to take a hold of my hand and I left. I told the girls I can’t take this. I’m leaving. So I immediately left.”
Broaddrick added, “What really went through my mind at that time is, ‘She knows. She knew. She’s covering it up and she expects me to do the very same thing.'”
Then, in 1991, Clinton approached Broaddrick at a meeting at the Riverfront Hotel in Little Rock.
When the Clinton campaign learned Broaddrick was at the meeting, she told Klein, “they called me out of the meeting and pointed to an area to go down around the corner by an elevator area. And I walked around the corner and there he stands.”
“And he immediately comes over to me with this gushing apology. Like, ‘I’m so sorry for what happened. I hope you can forgive me. I’m a family man now. I have a daughter. I’m a changed man. I would never do anything like that again.'”
Broaddrick said she believed Clinton was remorseful until one week later – when he announced his campaign for the White House.
“But still I have to thank him for that day because the blame then went off of me and on to him. And I knew that it wasn’t my fault. I knew that I didn’t use good judgement but I knew that the incident was no longer my fault.”
