On Wednesday April 25th, the 40th anniversary of the day she says Bill Clinton “forcibly brutally” raped her, Juanita Broaddrick tweeted out a timeline of the alleged incident.
After the rise of the #MeToo movement, some on the Left have expressed some regret for having turned a deaf ear to Clinton’s accusers for decades — though mostly as a way of defending their attacks on Donald Trump for less egregious alleged offenses. One of the most vocal of Clinton’s accusers is Broaddrick, who has been shouting from the rooftops for years that Clinton raped her and Hillary attempted to silence her, accusations the media has largely ignored. In January, Broaddrick pointed out that she still hasn’t heard her name mentioned by the likes of Oprah. It’s up to her, she’s accepted, to tell her story, and she’s vowed to “never” stop telling the world how “evil” the Clintons are.
Below is the full text of the series of tweets Broaddrick posted Wednesday, followed by the tweets themselves:
On this morning, 40 years ago, my life changed forever. On 4-25-78, I was brutally raped by Ark AG, Bill Clinton. I have spent the majority of my life trying to forget….. and watching the Evil thrive. A timeline of that day follows….
1. On 4-24-78 around 6pm Norma Rogers, my nursing director and I left Van B
uren and drove to Little Rick for a nursing seminar. We checked into the Camelot hotel…
2. On 4-25-78 at approx 8am, I called Bill Clinton’s campaign office. I was given another no. to call. He answered.
3. I told him I had brought the information we had discussed 3 weeks prior when he visited my nursing home on campaign tour. I asked if we could come to his office on our lunch break at noon…..
4. Bill Clinton replied he would not be in his office that day….. and said he could come to the Camelot shortly and meet me. He said he would call when he got to the coffee shop….
5. I told Norma the plan. She went on to the seminar to sign us in. I told her I would be there as soon as I left the coffee shop. I waited for The call ……
6. In a short time the phone rang. Bill Clinton said he was at coffee shop but it was very crowded…..and then said…can we have coffee and discuss this in your room?. ..I was nervous …but he was the Attorney General. I agreed and ordered coffee…
7. After the coffee arrived, there was a knock on the door. I opened it and there stood Bill Clinton in “sunglasses”. I ushered him to the table and poured the coffee and began to talk about info I had brought….
8. He motioned for me to come to his side of the table and was pointing out the window…. I walked to where he was to look. He said it was an 1800 jailhouse he wanted to restore when he became governor. …….
9. As he pointed to it, he put his arm around my shoulder and I backed away. He then grabbed me and started kissing me. I was so startled and shocked. I told him NO!!……
10. When I realized he was not taking No for an answer I began to scream…that is when he began to bite my upper lip every time I screamed. ….then he shoved me backwards onto the bed…..
11. After 40 years, I am still very emotional and tearing remembering what followed. It was a forcible brutal rape!
12. Afterwards……I was sitting up on the side of the bed crying. He simply straightened himself, and very cold and casually, walked to the door, put on his sunglasses and said to me, motioning to my swollen and bleeding lip, “You’d Better Put Some Ice On That” and left.
13. When I did not show up for the seminar, Norma became worried and returned to our room looking for me. It was less than an hour after the rape.
14. I was lying on the bed still confused and in a state of shock when she knocked on the door. I had locked it after he left. I opened the door when I saw it was Norma. When she saw me and I saw the look on her face, I began to cry all over again……
15. I told Norma everything. She got ice for my mouth and helped me change my torn clothing. She asked me what I wanted to do. I replied “I just want to go home”. She packed our belongings and drove us back to Van Buren.
After posting the timeline of the alleged rape, she thanked those who posted kind comments and said it’s been a “tough day,” but then pledged to continue to “never” stop telling her story.
