According to Donald Trump, the accusations made against him in a New York Times article are miniscule compared to the Clintons’ history.
During an appearance on Sean Hannity’s show on Wednesday evening, Hannity asked Trump, “Are they going to interview Juanita Broaddrick? Are they going to interview Paula Jones? Are they going to interview Kathleen Wiley?” He added that one case was about exposure, while the other was about fondling, groping and touching a woman against her will.
Trump added, “And rape.”
“And big settlements, massive settlements,” the Republican candidate noted.
Trump pointed to Bill Clinton’s disbarment in Arkansas. “He couldn’t practice law. And you don’t read about this on Clinton,” he said.
The three women Hannity mentioned on the show have all accused Bill Clinton of lewd conduct. Jones alleges that Clinton exposed himself to her at a hotel in Little Rock back in 1991. Wiley accused Clinton of groping her in 1993, and Broaddrick alleged that Bill Clinton sexually assaulted and raped her in 1978.
Neither Bill nor Hillary Clinton have commented on the matter during the campaign, but Trump has hinted that he would attack the former president’s past with women.
Trump has suggested that Hillary Clinton is an enabler.
“Hillary hurt many women, the women that he abused,” Trump said. His attacks continued, calling out Hillary for being married to a man who was impeached for lying.
The Clinton campaign has launched its own attack in response to Trump’s latest remarks, but refused to engage in back-and-forth banter. Clinton says she remains focused on what’s best for the American people.
