Billionaire Twitter boss Elon Musk continues to make good on his previous pledge to allow previously banned accounts and users back on the platform. That now includes Juanita Broaddrick, who has long accused former President Bill Clinton of rape while she was working as a nursing home administrator and he was serving as Arkansas attorney general in the late 1970s.

Fox News reports:

The company said her account has been locked for “violating the policy on spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19.” The statement included the original tweet that sparked the ban, in which Broaddrick challenged the effectiveness of the coronavirus vaccines, suggested that pharmaceutical companies enormously profited because of them, and conspicuously claimed the vaccines “alter DNA.”

“When will this vaccine crap be over? Big Pharma has profited enough for the next hundred years. Stop pushing vaccines that don’t work and alter DNA,” Broaddrick said in the tweet, which was initially posted on April 9, according to the screenshot noted by the outlet.

The statement also noted that Broaddrick could likely have her account restored if she simply deleted the tweet.

“We understand that during times of crisis and instability, it is difficult to know what to do to keep yourself and your loved ones safe. Under this policy, we require the removal of content that may pose a risk to people’s health, including content that goes directly against guidance from authoritative sources of global and local public health information,” Twitter noted at the time.

After having her account restored, Broaddrick tweeted on Monday: “What a great Christmas gift……. the freedom of speech.”

She also went on to thank new Twitter boss Elon Musk and the popular user Catturd2 for her account being restored.

Broaddrick is the author of “You’d Better Put Some Ice On That: How I Survived Being Raped By Bill Clinton.” She has claimed that her lip was injured during the alleged attack and that Clinton at the time told her to “put some ice” on the injury.

The Western Journal notes some history between Clinton and Broaddrick:

Broaddrick first came to prominence in 1999, after Clinton’s impeachment trial, in which the reluctant former nursing home administrator gave a sworn statement accusing Clinton of rape in 1978. “It was a horrible, horrible experience and I just wanted it to go away,” she said in an interview at the time, according to The Washington Post. She’s gotten less reluctant — and more outspoken — as time has gone on.

“You know, the man is absolutely despicable in everything that he has done,” she said during a 2018 radio interview before Clinton began a book tour. “And you know the people that love him and believe him, I honestly feel … that they are brainwashed. There is no other answer. Because it has been written and proven that this man is a sexual predator,” she added.

Clinton also has been dogged by reports that he was close to convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and that he accompanied Epstein frequently to an island where, allegedly, there were frequently minor girls. “Both an Epstein accuser and a former employee have recounted seeing the former president on Epstein’s private Caribbean island,” the Western Journal noted.

Epstein reportedly hung himself in jail awaiting trial for new allegations of underaged sexual assault.

His associate, Ghislaine Maxwell, the British socialite who was convicted of conspiring with Epstein to recruit, groom, and abuse underage girls, learned her fate in court recently.

U.S. Circuit Judge Alison Nathan sentenced Maxwell to 20 years in prison for sex trafficking in June.

“The guideline range applicable is 188 to 235 months imprisonment,” Judge Nathan said.

Maxwell’s behavior was “heinous and predatory,” Nathan says, noting that she worked with Epstein to select “young victims who were vulnerable.”

“The damage done to these young girls was incalculable,” Nathan says not only of their abuse at the hands of Epstein and Maxwell but also by having to testify about it and endure “zealous cross-examination.”
