Slate magazine has run a column suggesting that Juanita Broaddrick’s accusation of rape against Bill Clinton are “credible,” but Broaddrick goes too far in claiming that Hillary Clinton tried to keep her quiet about the alleged sexual assault.
Michelle Goldberg, in a piece titled “Juanita Broaddrick’s Rape Allegations Are Credible. Her Attacks on Hillary Clinton Are Not,” says that although there may be truth to Broaddrick’s claims regarding Bill Clinton, “far less credible, however, is Broaddrick’s claim that Hillary Clinton tried to intimidate her into silence.”
Goldberg argues that Broaddrick wrongly interpreted an interaction with Hillary at a fundraiser for Bill’s gubernatorial campaign — seeing a threat where, in Goldberg’s eyes, there was only typical gladhanding.
Broaddrick has given her recollection of this event to Aaron Klein, the Breitbart News editor and reporter who conducted a video interview with her at Washington, DC’s historic Watergate hotel.
