Ronan Farrow Calls for Investigation of Bill Clinton for Being ‘Credibly Accused of Rape’

Journalist Ronan Farrow is suggesting that the accusations of rape made against former President Bill Clinton are credible.

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.”

Juanita Broaddrick accused Clinton of raping her in 1978. She sued him in 1999 but the case was dismissed in 2001.

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.

Brad, were you thinking Christine Blasey Ford signed a sworn document that Brett Kavanaugh had NOT sexually assaulted her a year before she testified under oath that he did??? Juanita has never testified under oath that Bill Clinton raped her. So, yeah. I do treat them differently.

Unlike Kavangh’s accusers or the Bergdorf Goodman shopper Broaddrick has creditable claims, dates, etc. If nothing else, sleeping with Stormy would be disgusting and unbelievable, like having relations with a manatee.

Let us not forget Slick (ew!) Willie’s history. I’ll also hope the Epstein files drop.

Not to worry about Barry. His not-so-secret chain-smoking and Michele’s iron-clamp on his testicles ensured nothing like that would happen.

“In September 2018, Juanita Brodderick requested the ‘FBI investigate my credible claim of rape accusations'” she is saying occurred in April of 1978. FORTY YEARS AGO? WHAT do they investigate? Her accusation would be more credible had she not signed an affidavit in 1999 that there were no sexual advances, had Ken Starr found something credible, or had she provided some explanation of why she lied in the 1999 sworn statement.

Time for Clinton to be held accountable.
