Ronan Farrow, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and prominent player in the ‘Me Too’ movement, believes Juanita Broaddrick’s allegations of rape against former President Bill Clinton are ‘credible’ and need to be revisited.
Broaddrick is the former owner of a nursing home who accused Clinton of raping her decades earlier when he was a gubernatorial candidate in Arkansas.
Farrow made his eyebrow-raising comments during a panel discussion on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” in which participants were analyzing whether or not men would be treated in the same manner that Representative Katie Hill, a Democrat exposed for her three-way sexual relationship with a congressional staffer, has been.
“Could Bill Clinton, if he had done what he did in 1998, survive today — or would his own party have thrown him under the bus?” Maher inquired.
Clinton Credibly Accused
Farrow noted that Clinton’s issues stand out because they are credible, particularly Broaddrick’s allegations.
“I think that it is very important to interject that Bill Clinton is a different conversation,” Farrow explained to Maher. “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.”
Broaddrick joined The Political Insider last June to discuss those very same rape accusations Farrow is referencing and how they translate to today’s ‘Me Too’ movement.
In that interview, she describes a man who carried out a violent sexual assault, biting her lip and telling Broaddrick that “you’d better put some ice on that.”

Juanita Broaddrick And Hillary Clinton
Broaddrick has been a consistent voice against Bill and Hillary Clinton, the latter of whom she has hammered time and again for helping the former President cover up his crimes.
In an exclusive comment last month, Broaddrick blasted Hillary for telling women who have accused former vice president Joe Biden of groping them to “get over it.”
“She probably thinks that is so minor compared to what she did to all of her husband’s victims, now survivors,” Broaddrick told The Political Insider. “She essentially told us to get over it … and f*** off.”

Farrow said that he believed a revisit of the allegations against Clinton would yield further scrutiny than he’s ever had to endure from a friendly media in the past.
“I’m heartened by the fact that people now routinely express outrage about Bill Clinton, and particularly those more serious allegations about him,” Farrow added.
