A women who publicly accused Bill Clinton in 1999 of raping her says Hillary Clinton tried to silence her about the incident and felt obligated to speak out against the Clintons. She says she doesn’t identify herself with any one political party but plans to back Donald Trump.
In an interview with The Hill, Juanita Broadrick said she likes what Donald Trump is saying and thanked him for bringing up Bill Clinton’s past.
“I’m glad someone did. Everyone has been hanging back and most of the mainstream media won’t approach it but it’s something that should be talked about,” Broadrick said.
She says she felt the need to come out and discuss what happened to her now that Hillary Clinton is so close to being the Democrat nominee.
“I’ve been quiet for too long, and now with the possibility of [Hillary Clinton] being the Democratic nominee and possibly president, I feel the need to get involved,” she said.
The now 73 year old woman claims Hillary tried to silence her about the incident.
I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away.

Broadrick publicly accused Bill Clinton of raping her in 1973 while Bill served as Attorney General in Arkansas.
David E. Kendall, who was Bill Clinton’s attorney at the time, denied Broaddrick’s allegations when they first emerged during Bill Clinton’s presidency.
“Any allegation that the president assaulted Ms. Broaddrick more than 20 years ago is absolutely false,” he said in a statement released by the White House in February 1999, according to The Washington Post.
