Juanita Broaddrick, who accused former President Bill Clinton of raping her before he was president, crashed the Senate hearing of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday, ripping Democrats for what she called “the biggest double standard I’ve ever seen.”
Broaddrick addressed the media outside the Senate building where Kavanaugh’s Judiciary Committee hearing was set to take place. She said the accusations from Christine Blasey Ford, who claims Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 at a boozy high school party, is “no comparison” to what happened to her.
“Because Dr. Ford has no evidence — I 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,” Broaddrick said.
“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 said. “It makes me angry that they left [Clinton] in office,” she said about Senate Democrats who rejected hearing her allegations.
“I have twenty times more evidence for my rape by Bill Clinton than Dr. Ford has against Kavanaugh,” Broaddrick said. “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.”
In 1999, as Clinton was being impeached for committing perjury about his sexual affair with a White House intern, Broaddrick said that Clinton raped her in Arkansas in 1978 when he was the state’s attorney general. She claimed that Clinton repeatedly bit her lip in the rape and, as he left, told her, “You better put some ice on that.”
As for the Kavanaugh hearing, Broaddrick said she was skeptical about Ford’s accusations.
“It’s not that I’ve decided, she hasn’t anything truly evidentiary to this point, how can she all of a sudden have something new to say today? She’s presented nothing,” she said.
But Broaddrick slammed the mantra “All women deserve to be believed.”
“All women are to be believed if they’re not conservatives and as long as the assault was not done by Democrats,” she said.
