Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wants all rape survivors to be believed – unless the women are accusing her husband.
An audience member at a New Hampshire campaign event asked the Democratic Party presidential front-runner on Thursday whether recent calls to believe sexual assault victims also pertains to Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones.
“You recently came out to say that all rape victims should be believed, but would you say that about Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones? Should we believe them as well?” the audience member asked, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
“Well, I would say that everybody should be believed at first until they are disbelieved based on evidence,” Clinton responded.
The increased attention to accusations leveled against Bill Clinton stems from a Nov. 22 tweet by the candidate that said, “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?”
The audience member at the New Hampshire event failed to mention Eileen Wellstone, who claims Clinton raped her in 1969 sometime after the two met at an Oxford pub.
“If accusers have a right to be taken seriously, if not quite ‘believed,’ does that mean [Hillary Clinton] took Broaddrick seriously when she first accused Bill of assault? That’s a follow-up question for the next townhall attendee who gets to quiz her,” the conservative website Hot Air wrote in response to the video.
In her recent ad, Hillary told “every survivor of sexual assault”: “You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed. We’re with you.”
As WND recently reported, Broaddrick ripped into Hillary for what she says is an “evil compact” made by the Clinton duo to cover up sexual crimes and indiscretions.
Broaddrick 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.”
Broaddrick added, “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.”
