On Sunday, Monica Lewinsky—who was a White House intern in the 1990s when she and then-President Clinton had a sexual affair that the president later confessed it was “improper“, included herself in the “#MeToo“hashtag movement started by actress Alyssa Milano: “To all the women sharing stories of sexual assault and sexual harassment, thank you for your bravery to speak up. You are not alone. #MeToo.”
On Thursday, Juanita Broaddrick, who accused Bill Clinton of raping her in the 1970s slammed Monica Lewinsky of failing to give her voice on the sexual conduct of Clinton when it was desperately needed:
“Your silence was deafening in the 90’s when Kathleen [Willey], Paula [Jones] and I needed your voice,” wrote Broaddrick.
“Better late than never Monica Lewinsky’s ME TOO. I have always felt sad for you, but where were you when we needed you?” she added.
Broaddrick hit the headlines during the 2016 primaries when she once again accused Clinton on Twitter, writing, “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.”
In August 2016, Broaddrick told The Daily Wire that Hillary Clinton not only she knew her husband raped her , but she also pressured her to keep it quiet. “I felt like she knew [I was raped], it was just the look in her eyes and the anger on her face, because I was so afraid at that time of anyone knowing what had happened to me,” said Broaddrick. “She threatened me at that fundraiser; that’s foremost in my mind. I’ll never forget that … I knew what she meant; I just have absolutely no doubt.”
Bill Clinton has long refuted the allegations of sexual behavior leveled against him by Broaddrick, Willey, and Jones. He has, however, admitted to having conducted consensual sexual affairs with Lewinsky and Gennifer Flowers.
