Juanita Broaddrick, Bill Clinton’s rape accuser, harshly criticized Democrats for the “biggest double standard” on Brett Kavanaugh.
Adam Shaw, at Fox News, reports:
Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who accused former President Bill Clinton of raping her decades ago, slammed Democrats Thursday for what she called “the biggest double standard I’ve ever seen” in their treatment of sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Broaddrick spoke to the media outside the Senate building where the high-stakes hearing with Kavanaugh’s first accuser is being held. Kavanaugh is due to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee after Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 at a high school party, speaks to lawmakers.
Ford says she first revealed the alleged assault in therapy in 2012 and had told multiple people. She has also taken a polygraph test and has called for the FBI to investigate her claims.
But Broaddrick, outside the Senate, told Fox News’ Ellison Barber that there was “no comparison” between her case and Ford’s.
Broaddrick alleges that Clinton violently raped her in an Arkansas hotel room in 1978. She’s said the attack left her with a bloody lip, and Clinton told her to “put some ice on that.”
