Reflecting on comedian Bill Cosby’s guilty verdict on Thursday, Juanita Broaddrick suggested it was time for former President Bill Clinton to face the consequences for allegedly raping her:
“Yes, it is time,” she said in response to conservative author Dinesh D’Souza’s post. D’Souza posted an image of Cosby and Clinton, asking, “Isn’t it time to hold the other Bill accountable?”
As Independent Journal Review previously noted, a jury convicted Cosby of drugging and molesting a woman in his Philadelphia home in 2004.
While Clinton has never faced charges over Broaddrick’s allegations, he had somewhat of an embarrassing incident when then-nominee Donald Trump brought her and other Clinton accusers to his 2016 debate with Clinton’s wife, Hillary.
When Clinton lost at the end of 2016, Broaddrick thanked Trump and suggested his win was “vindication” for her:
Tears of joy. Vindication after 38 years of pain & suffering. Thanks to Mr Trump & all of you. It does go away.

“It does go away,” she said in an apparent reference to the trauma of her alleged rape. Earlier that year, she seemed to say the memory of her rape stayed with her for decades:
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.
