Former President Bill Clinton was confronted by a reporter over rape allegations from Juanita Broaddrick. Ms. Broaddrick is back in the news as Hillary’s campaign picks up steam, and she’s being very vocal about Hillary and Bill’s past misconduct. Mr. Clinton did his best to dodge the question according to The Blaze:
Broaddrick, who accused Clinton of rape in 1999, alleged again on Wednesday that the former president “raped” and “tried to silence” her.
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.

Clinton previously denied Broaddrick’s allegations through an attorney.
After speaking at a Cedar Rapids, Iowa, event for Hillary’s campaign, a reporter with the conservative Daily Caller confronted him.
“What’s your reaction to Juanita Broaddrick’s reemergence?” Daily Caller reporter Kerry Picket asked multiple times.
Clinton didn’t answer, only choosing to comment on a question about Republican frontrunner Donald Trump making an issue of his “past transgressions.”
“I don’t have any response. If he wins the Republican nomination, we’ll have plenty of time to talk about it. I have no interest in getting involved in their politics or doing anything except trying to help Hillary,” Clinton said.
“What’s your reaction to Juanita Broaddrick’s response?” Clinton was again asked multiple times.
“He has said a lot of things. I have no response,” Clinton replied.
With November 2016 looming ever so closer, we can expect to see more people come out of the woodwork against Ms. Clinton – the MSM anointed frontrunner, and Mr. Trump, the ‘apparent’ front runner for the GOP.
With many skeletons in both Mr. and Mrs. Clinton’s closets, it’s likely that we’re just starting to see a resurgence of activists against them. And Mr. Clinton will, no doubt, have many more opportunities to practice dodging and evading such questions. And perhaps, questioning the definition of ‘is.’
