Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who famously accused Bill Clinton of rape, slammed Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton for turning a blind eye to her story while claiming to be a champion of women’s rights.
Ms. Broaddrick made the comments during an interview set to air Sunday night on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” in one of her first media appearances since she alleged in 1999 that Mr. Clinton raped her in a Little Rock hotel room while she was volunteering for his 1978 gubernatorial bid.
Mrs. Clinton has made women’s issues a key part of her presidential platform. On Monday, she tweeted, “Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported.”
“Shame on you, Hillary, that’s disgusting,” Ms. Broaddrick told Aaron Klein, Breitbart reported. “Shame on you, Hillary. It’s time to be truthful.”
“I think she has always known everything about him,” she said of Mr. Clinton. “I think they have this evil compact between the two of them that they each know what the other does and overlook it. And go right on. And cover one for the other.”
Ms. Broaddrick said the only thing that convinced her to come forward with her story again was seeing Mrs. Clinton during her Benghazi testimony.
“I always turn the channel when either one of them are on TV. But when I saw that look on her face. It was the very same look back in 1978. That lying look,” she said. “She lies. She covers up. Just to imagine her in that position would not be good for America.”
Ms. Broaddrick recalled a time when she allegedly met Mrs. Clinton in 1978, shortly after the alleged rape occurred.
Mrs. Clinton approached her “and said, ‘It’s so nice to meet you,’ and all of the niceties she was trying to say at the time,” Ms. Broaddrick claimed. “And said, ‘I just want you to know how much Bill and I appreciate the things you do for him.’ And I just stood there, Aaron. I was sort of you might say shell-shocked.”
“And she said, ‘Do you understand? Everything you do,’” she recalled. “She tried to take a hold of my hand and I left. I told the girls I can’t take this. I’m leaving. So I immediately left.”
“What really went through my mind at that time is ‘She knows. She knew. She’s covering it up and she expects me to do the very same thing,’” Ms. Broaddrick said.
Years later, she said Mr. Clinton tried to apologize to her at the Riverfront Hotel in Little Rock.
Mr. Clinton found out she was at the hotel “and they called me out of the meeting and pointed to an area to go down around the corner by an elevator area. And I walked around the corner and there he stands,” she said.
“And he immediately comes over to me with this gushing apology. Like, ‘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,’” she said.
Ms. Broaddrick said the Clintons “are not good people for America.”
“Aaron, the only thing that I would like to say is I hope that someday these two people, these people that I feel like are so evil, will be brought to justice,” she told Mr. Klein.
