Fox News host Megyn Kelly has been trying to take Donald Trump down for months in an effort to appeal to more mainstream audience, so it came as no surprise when she launched an attack on him after the second presidential debate on Sunday night. However, Kelly took things way too far when she accused Juanita Broaddrick, one of Bill Clinton’s rape victims whom Trump brought to the debate, of being a liar.
The American Mirror reported that Kelly claimed Broaddrick had denied that any rape occurred in a 1998 affidavit. The truth, of course, is far more complicated than that. Like countless other rape victims, Broaddrick had lost hope that anyone would believe her and did not want to relive the violation she suffered at the hands of a future president in front of the entire world.
Breitbart reported in 2014:
In January of 1999, a month after Clinton’s impeachment by the House — and in the midst of the Senate trial grappling with whether Monica Lewinsky should testify — Broaddrick finally agreed to meet NBC’s Lisa Myers for an interview… Broaddrick’s decision to go forward with an interview came after “she contemplated all the layers of tawdry rumor about her that had multiplied in the wake of the other, larger scandal involving the president.”…
Broaddrick continued to refuse to cave to the media’s requests for interviews. In 1997, she was subpoenaed by Jones’ attorneys, yet she continued to deny the assault.
“I didn’t want to be forced to testify about one of the most horrific events in my life,” she told Myers. “I didn’t want to go through it again.”
Broaddrick still refused to come forward when Kathleen Willey accused the President of unwanted sexual advances, saying that she “wasn’t brave enough to do it.”
When Independent Counsel Ken Starr’s office approached her in April of 1998, however, Broaddrick finally agreed to provide the details of Clinton’s alleged sexual assault, saying she feared lying to a federal grand jury. Starr would also grant her immunity from prosecution for perjury….
Starr never pursued Broaddrick’s allegations, however, because he was investigating charges of obstruction of justice against Clinton. Since Broaddrick was not alleging that the President urged her to lie, her allegations of the assault never went forward.
Broaddrick also feared retaliation from Hillary Clinton, who has threatened her on numerous occasions in the nearly forty years since her rape. It was only recently that Broaddrick felt the courage to return to the public eye, as she knows more than almost anyone how crucial it is that the Clintons not be allowed back in power.
“Actions speak louder than words,” Broaddrick said before the debate. “Mr. Trump may have said some bad words but Bill Clinton raped me and Hillary Clinton threatened me. I don’t think there’s any comparison.”
Shame on Megyn Kelly for calling a woman who was RAPED by Bill Clinton a liar just to further her own clearly-liberal agenda. SHARE this story if you think Fox News should FIRE Megyn Kelly!
