Hillary Clinton, with no apparent shame or sense of irony, wasted no time weighing in on the 35-year-old sexual assault accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Pontificating in front of a sympathetic Rachel Maddow, the twice-failed presidential candidate argued that “we should give the benefit of the doubt to the court and the country” and delay the confirmation process.

Her comments, in stark contrast to her vicious tirades against her husband’s accusers, were met with predictable backlash – including one woman, who’s credible rape allegation against Bill Clinton was ignored by Democrats, for decades.

James Barrett, at the Daily Wire, explains:

Asked by host Rachel Maddow if Democrats should play the kind of “hardball” Republicans played with blocking the Merrick Garland nomination, or “just go through regular order with whoever Trump has to put up next if the Kavanaugh nomination fails,” Clinton called for neither “unilateral disarmament or Defcon-10.” What she really wanted to see, she made clear, was an investigation.

“I remember back in the Thomas hearing when Senator Byrd was asked what he was going to do, and he said in a situation like this we should give the benefit of the doubt to the court and the country,” she said. “And that’s what the Republicans should be doing right now, from the White House down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Senate, give the benefit of the doubt to the court and the country. And that means have an investigation that will then lead to a hearing that will then lead to a vote if appropriate.”

Republicans have offered Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, the chance to testify in a public or private hearing on Monday, an offer her lawyer currently says she will not accept, demanding an FBI investigation first. An investigation into Ford’s accusation by the FBI, Clinton told MSNBC, is “a reasonable request.”

“The White House could answer [Ford’s request] very quickly by asking the FBI to reopen its background check and to take into account the accusation that’s been made and to gather the evidence about what can be known. So far, they haven’t done that,” she said. “And as someone who has watched this process unfold over many years, there does have to be some direction given to the FBI to pursue an investigation.”


On multiple occasions and in graphic detail, Broaddrick has accused Bill Clinton of violently raping her in 1978. NBC finally aired an interview with Broaddrick leveling the accusation, but only in 1999 – after President Clinton’s impeachment hearing.

The blowback to Hillary’s comments poured in across Twitter.

Besides allegedly having to live with the fact that Bill raped her, Hillary reportedly threatened Broaddrick to remain quiet.
