A woman who accused former President Bill Clinton of raping her several years ago has expressed doubt over the claims of sexual misconduct leveled at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Following a contentious hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, 51-year-old professor Christine Blasey Ford of California accused Kavanaugh of attempting to assault her back in the 1980s when they were both teenagers.
Juanita Broaddrick, who has claimed that then Arkansas Attorney General Clinton raped her in 1978, was interviewed by Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham on Monday.
During her interview, Broaddrick stated that while she believes that Ford “should be heard” she has “so many reservations about her comments.”
“I can’t imagine a young girl going through what Ms. Ford said she went through and not tell anyone. What I went through was horrific and of course the lady that found me was the first one that I told,” said Broaddrick.
“I told four other people. That’s just something that I can’t imagine that you can keep to yourself and not share with one of your closest friends.”
Broaddrick also called Senate Democrats like Dianne Feinstein of California hypocrites for their refusal in 1999 to read her deposition on the alleged incident.
“That just shows you the difference and the double standard that existed back then and still does today,” Broaddrick said. “I think this is astonishing that they can do this to Mr. Kavanaugh.”
Ford detailed her claims against Kavanaugh in an interview with The Washington Post, alleging that about 35 years ago a drunk teenaged Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her.
