On HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday, host Bill Maher questioned if Clinton would’ve been “thrown him under the bus” by his party “if he had done what he did in 1998” in today’s climate.
In response, Farrow said that Clinton “has been credibly accused of rape”:
“I think that it is very important to interject that Bill Clinton is a different conversation. He has been credibly accused of rape. That has nothing to do with gray areas. I think that the Juanita Broaddrick claim has been overdue for revisiting.”
The Clinton question followed the panel’s discussion on now-former Rep. Katie Hill’s (D-Calif.) resignation from the House of Representatives, following reports of inappropriate sexual relations with staff members, as IJR previously reported.
In September of 2018, Broaddrick requested “the FBI investigate my credible rape allegations against Bill Clinton, in the hope that his ‘perks’, as a Former Pres, can be stripped. It totals millions each year from mine and your tax dollar to support a rapist.”
Her request came at the time of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process amid sexual assault accusations against the now-justice.
Farrow’s appearance on the show comes shortly after the release of his book “Catch & Kill.“
