WASHINGTON – Juanita Broaddrick’s rape accusation against Bill Clinton now has medical corroboration for the alleged violent attack that occurred in a hotel room 38 years ago.
Norma Rogers, the nurse who treated her in the hotel room immediately following the incident, told Aaron Klein, a radio host in the New York and Philadelphia markets and a staff writer for Breitbart News: “She was crying. And the thing I think I remember most is that her mouth was all swollen up. It was cut. … Her pantyhose were all ripped.”
At the time, Broaddrick was a nursing-home administrator volunteering for the gubernatorial campaign of then Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton in 1978.
Rogers drove Broaddrick back home after the incident.
“I think we stopped at least twice to get ice,” she recalled. “I would go up and get fresh ice and put it on her mouth because she was trying to keep her face from bruising and looking like something bad had happened to her, you know. It was just crazy. The whole situation was just crazy.”
Broaddrick said Clinton previously singled her out during a campaign stop at her nursing home and suggested getting together the next time she was in Little Rock to talk about the nursing-home industry. Some time later, Broaddrick and Rogers, who worked for Broaddrick, headed to the state capital for a convention – sharing a room at the Camelot Hotel.
As instructed, Broaddrick called Clinton-campaign headquarters to let him know she was in town. She was directed by the receptionist to call Clinton at his private apartment.
When she called, he suggested meeting at the hotel coffee shop. But when he arrived at the hotel, he called Broaddrick and told her it was too crowded in the coffee shop and there were reporters there. He suggested meeting in her room.
Though she was taken aback by the request to meet in her room, she agreed. After all, it was the state’s attorney general and gubernatorial candidate.
“I just know when I left that morning it was my understanding that she was going to be meeting with Mr. Clinton downstairs in the coffee shop for a meeting that they had planned ahead of time to discuss nursing-home issues,” Rogers recalled in the interview.
Upon entering the room. shortly after the incident, Rogers was shocked by what she found.
“I went back to the room, and I can’t remember if it was because she didn’t come down to the meeting, because I expected her to have a short meeting and then come to the meeting,” Rogers said. “And so I went back up to the room, and when I went back into the room and she was just very, very upset. She was crying. … And she just told me. She started then telling me the story of how he had just basically overtaken her and bit her lip in order to keep her quiet and to keep her from trying to leave or get away from him. And then she proceeded to tell me that he had pushed her onto the bed and had raped her.”
Asked whether Broaddrick’s lip was bleeding, Rogers replied, “There were obviously open spots where he had bitten her. It was open but not openly bleeding. You know it was just open spots on her lip.”
Asked what she could recall from the drive back from the hotel, Rogers stated, “I just remember that she cried most of the way home. And she kept just questioning herself. ‘Why in the world would, you know? Why would I have ever trusted him?’ But you know she just did not ever think that he would do anything like that. She never suspected that he was interested in her other than her qualifications and her knowledge of long-term care. So it was totally surprising to both of us that this happened.”
“Their Lives: The Women Targeted by the Clinton Machine” – available at the WND Superstore – is a wake-up call to Americans everywhere to re-evaluate this ruthless power couple and prevent Hillary Clinton from returning to the White House.
“Looking back as I am older now I realize that she was in a state of shock basically,” Rogers said of the ride home. “And as so many rape victims do, I think she blamed herself. She felt bad for what had happened because she felt like, you know, ‘Why was I not smart enough to figure this out and keep something like this from happening?'”
Rogers said Broaddrick requested that the incident remain confidential. “And she was so afraid of people finding out and blaming her. There was just so many things going on and again seeing her in this state that she was in I just wanted to try to make her feel better if I could. So I just agreed that whatever she needed from me to do to help her to get through this that I would do this. Which her first thing to me was she did not want me to say anything to anyone, and that’s what I agreed to.”
Asked whether she has any doubt about Broaddrick’s story, Rogers replied, “Oh, absolutely none whatsoever.”
Rogers also backed up a 1991 incident with Clinton that has been previously described by Broaddrick.
She was at a meeting at the Riverfront Hotel in Little Rock, and Clinton approached her. He approached her, and said: “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 thought Clinton was sincere until he announced his run for president the following week.
Rogers was at the industry meeting and, while she didn’t see Clinton herself, she can vouch for Broaddrick returning startled from the encounter. She says Broaddrick immediately told her that she met Clinton.
“She was gone for a while, and when she came back she was white, and she said, ‘You are never going to believe what that was about,'” she said. “And of course I had no idea. And she said that guy led me around to a stairwell and she said Bill Clinton was there waiting on me. … and said to her, ‘I hope that you are not going to hold what happened against me.'”
Last May, WND dispatched Candice Jackson, author of Their Lives: The Women Targeted by the Clinton Machine,” to conduct a lengthy in-person interview with Broaddrick at her home. The two got to know each other during the research Jackson did for her book.
“I wouldn’t invite them to my house,” Broaddrick told Jackson about the Clintons. “I just can’t imagine that the American people will invite them back to the White House.”
Jackson’s account of the gruesome attack Broaddrick experienced is told in one chapter of “Their Lives,” republished by WND last January.
