Juanita Broaddrick, who credibly has accused President Bill Clinton of raping her when he was Arkansas attorney, accused Democrats, as they were set to hear Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser Thursday, of employing a “double standard.”
Speaking to media outside the Senate building where the hearing was set to take place, Broaddrick said Christine Blasey Ford’s claim that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 at a high school party is “no comparison” to what happened to her.
Broaddrick said Ford had no evidence while she had “the who, what, when, where and how and had five people that I told, not even counting the woman who found me 30 minutes after the rape with a swollen busted lip, torn clothes and in a state of shock.”
Democrats have vowed, even before Kavanaugh became the nominee, to attempt to block President Trump’s choice to replace swing-vote Anthony Kennedy. Democrats fear Kavanaugh would become the deciding vote to overturn the Roe v. Wade decision that established a right to abortion.
The Daily Wire reported that Broaddrick “crashed” the Kavanaugh hearing, and ripped Democrats there for “the biggest double standard I’ve ever seen.”
“How they can take these accusations and run with them, and laugh at mine for so many years is the biggest double standard I’ve ever seen?” she asked. “It makes me angry that they left [Clinton] in office.”
Broaddrick charged Democrats deliberately ignored her substantive claim of rape by Clinton.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the senator who received Ford’s accusation more than six weeks ago, was in office during independent counsel Kenneth Starr’s investigation into Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky.
“It’s absurd,” Broaddrick told Fox News earlier. “Not one Democrat would look at my deposition with the independent counsel. Oh my gosh, they did not want to know about it.”
In an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, she recalled 1999 when “along with every other Democrat,” Feinstein “refused to read my deposition to the independent counsel.”
“They would have nothing to do with it. That shows you the difference in the double standard that existed back then and still does today,” Broaddrick said.
At her Thursday news conference in Washington, she said she has “20 times more evidence for my rape by Bill Clinton than Dr. Ford has against Kavanaugh.”
“Democrats turned their backs on me. They refused to read or acknowledge me in 1999 when I went public with my story. Democrats turned their backs on me,” she said.
