Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign Monday continued focusing on allegations of sexual abuse by Bill Clinton, releasing  a brief online ad that features the voice of Juanita Broaddrick charging Clinton bit her lip and raped her in 1978.

Broaddrick’s 1999 interview with NBC’s “Dateline” recently has come back into focus, with media figure such as NBC’s Andrea Mitchell calling her claim “discredited,” even though NBC’s Lisa Myers continues to maintain Broaddrick is credible.

The black-and-white clip runs only about 20 seconds and features Broaddrick speaking with an image of Bill Clinton, cigar in mouth, on screen. It ends with the words, “Here we go again,” accompanied by Hillary Clinton’s unmistakable laugh in the background.

Broaddrick says: “He starts to bite on my top lip and I try to pull away from him.”

The ad:

In recent weeks, Trump has taken aim at the image of Bill Clinton as merely a “philandering husband,” publicly charging on the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” that the former president committed “rape.”

On the same day,Broaddrick described in a WND exclusive sit-down interview in her Arkansas home how the alleged 1978 sexual assault has deeply and permanently scarred her life. Broaddrick also noted that she recently received a phone call from Andrea Mitchell, who was seeking an update on her rape claim.

“Lisa Myers actually warned me about Andrea,” Broaddrick told WND after Mitchell called her claim “discredited.”

Broaddrick has become engaged in this year’s election because of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy. She tweeted earlier: “I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73 … it never goes away.”

She had explained that her statements were prompted by Hillary Clinton’s claim that victims of sexual assault should be believed.

“Thoroughly disgusting – Hillary’s comments on rape. Shame on you Hillary, shame on you!” she wrote.

Other networks later followed Mitchell’s lead, with ABC’s Tom Llamas calling Broaddrick’s statements “discredited” and Nancy Cordes’ on CBS saying: “They were referring to a trio of women who say Bill Clinton made unwanted sexual advances in 80s and 90s. Mr. Clinton denies it. Two of the cases were plagued by factual discrepancies.”

In 1999, NBC’s Myers, a respected senior investigative correspondent, was so convinced of Broaddrick’s credibility that she interviewed her for the network’s primetime story.

Indeed, Mitchell’s “discredited” claim clashes directly with Myers, who as recently as 2014 confirmed, “Nothing has come up since that story was reported that in any way undercuts what Juanita Broaddrick said.”

Broaddrick said of Mitchell’s comment: “Nothing has changed from the detailed investigation NBC did into my story in 1999 before airing my Dateline interview with Lisa Myers.”

Broaddrick was speaking to Los Angeles attorney Candice Jackson, who conducted the in-person interview with Broaddrick for WND. Jackson previously authored the acclaimed book “Their Lives: The Women Targeted by the Clinton Machine.”

“And if NBC now thinks my experience has been ‘discredited,'” Broaddrick continued, “why would Andrea Mitchell call me to ask me for any new information about my encounter with Hillary after the assault? And why wouldn’t Andrea Mitchell have written her own news story explaining exactly how I’ve been discredited? Lisa Myers actually warned me about Andrea. Andrea is obviously mad at me for exposing her rudeness and bias when she called me this year. I think being a lapdog for Hillary Clinton discredits Andrea Mitchell and NBC as journalists!”

Here’s how Jackson reported Broaddrick’s comments about her call with Andrea Mitchell in her interview story:

Juanita created a social media firestorm earlier this year by tweeting that she had been “dreading seeing my abuser on TV campaign trail for enabler wife … but his physical appearance reflects ghosts of past are catching up.” One of the many media figures who called her after this tweet was Andrea Mitchell of NBC. Because she’d had a positive experience with Lisa Myers with NBC back in 1999, Andrea Mitchell was one of the few calls Juanita returned in the aftermath of her trending tweets. Andrea Mitchell asked her just one question, listened to her answer, and told Juanita condescendingly, “We’re not going to air anything with you because you have nothing new to add.” Juanita felt bewildered by Andrea Mitchell’s dismissive attitude.

Mitchell’s disparagement of Broaddrick’s rape accusation came in a report of Trump’s “rape” reference.

“Donald Trump used that word unprompted during an interview last night with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, bringing up a discredited and long denied accusation against former President Bill Clinton dating back to 1978 when he was Arkansas attorney general.”

See Mitchell’s comment:

As the Washington Free Beacon pointed out, Mitchell “is correct to say this allegation is ‘long denied,’ but on what basis is she calling it discredited?”

“On the contrary, Broaddrick’s allegation is arguably the most consistent and believable accusation of sexual assault made against Bill Clinton (though not, of course, the only one). For a little perspective here, note that even progressive site Vox says the allegation, ‘has not been definitively refuted.’ Vox also notes that reporter Michael Isikoff’s book contains a reference to a concession by Clinton’s lawyers that he may have had ‘consensual sex’ with Broaddrick.”

Mitchell’s comments on Trump’s “rape” reference came on the heels of a weekend New York Times story on Trump’s treatment of women headlined “Crossing the Line: How Donald Trump Behaved With Women in Private.” Since its publication, the story has been widely condemned by the very women quoted by the Times’ reporters, who say their words were shamelessly twisted to fit the newspaper’s pre-ordained story line.

Trump responded to the Times story on “Hannity” by focusing on Bill Clinton’s alleged serial sexual abuse of women.

Hannity picked up the theme: “For example, I looked at the New York Times. Are they going to interview Juanita Broaddrick? Are they going to interview Paula Jones? Are they going to interview Kathleen Willey?” Hannity asked Trump. “In one case, it’s about exposure. In another case, it’s about groping and fondling and touching against a woman’s will.”

Trump interjected, “And rape.”

“And rape,” Hannity repeated.
