Skip to comments.NOTE THE SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN CLINTON REACTION TIME AND CONTENT TO THE TWO RAPE CHARGES
Posted on 06/13/2005 4:59:20 AM PDT by Mia T
The closest that President Clinton has ever come to answering allegations that he raped an Arkansas woman in 1978 is a distance measurable only in light-years. After Juanita Broaddrick made the accusation in 1999, the president's attorney, David Kendall, alone answered, saying any such charges were "absolutely false." Of course, attorney Robert Bennett believed Mr. Clinton when he said he hadn't had sex with Monica Lewinsky and defended the president then on no less sturdy grounds. Thus while lawyers can spare Mr. Clinton awkward moments at the podium in which he has to say, "I did not have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky" or "I did not fondle that woman, Kathleen Wlley" or "I did not rape that woman, Mrs. Broaddrick," their comments are, in effect, non-denial denials.
Did he rape that woman, Juanita Broaddrick?
"Mrs. Clinton told me she would considering suing him for outright libel," the top Hillary source explains.
RAGE AT AUTHOR AFTER CLAIM: BILL RAPED HILLARY, CONCEIVED CHELSEA

RAGE AT AUTHOR AFTER CLAIM: BILL RAPED HILLARY, CONCEIVED CHELSEA
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton turned furious and considered legal action after learning bestselling author Ed Klein would allege in a new book: Bill Clinton raped her -- resulting in the conception of daughter Chelsea Clinton!
"[Author] Klein is going to rot in hell for this," a well-placed source close to Hillary said over the weekend.
The explosive charge comes in THE TRUTH ABOUT HILLARY: WHAT SHE KNEW, WHEN SHE KNEW IT, AND HOW FAR SHE'LL GO TO BECOME PRESIDENT -- set for release next week.
[The book ranked #198 on AMAZON.COM's hourly sale chart late Sunday.]
"I'm going back to my cottage to rape my wife," Klein quotes Bill Clinton as saying during a Bermuda getaway in 1979.
In the morning, the Clintons' room "looked like World War III. There are pillows and busted-up furniture all over the place," an unnamed source tells Klein.
Klein source claims Bill later learned Hillary was pregnant reading about it in the ARKANSAS GAZETTE.
"The fact that his wife didn't tell him that she was pregnant before she told a reporter doesn't seem to phase him one bit, because he says, 'Do you know what night that happened?"
"'No,' I say. 'When?"
"'It was Bermuda,' he says, 'And you were there!'"
The rape claim is just the beginning of Klein's alleged revelations, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal.
TRUTH ABOUT HILLARY marks the most aggressive attempt yet to investigate Hillary.
The former first lady turned senator fumed as a close aide offered details of the book, an insider explains.
"Mrs. Clinton told me she would considering suing him for outright libel," the top Hillary source explains. "This is the right wing attack machine on crack!"
But Hillary and her camp may have a hard time typecasting Ed Klein as a Clinton-crazed right-winger. Klein is the former foreign editor of NEWSWEEK and former editor in chief of the NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE. He is a frequent contributor to VANITY FAIR and PARADE.
He is also the author of THE KENNEDY CURSE; FAREWELL, JACKIE; and several other NEW YORK TIMES bestsellers.
VANITY FAIR has already commissioned an excerpt of the embargoed Hillary book, exploring Hillary's senate runs.
\the new Hillary book is climbing fast at Amazon. It is now #53 thanks to Drudge.
I think this kind of "Bill raped Hillary" comment is foolish and only meant to create empathy for Hillary, and it will work.
This could be one huge setup by Hillary.
Keep up the good work Mia!
This may for may not create sympathy for her; however, the public will also have to accept the fact that if she is elected, Bill is also elected.
I think it's meant to create sales for the book.
As I posted to you earlier, it smells to me like an attempt to transmogrify the multi-headed serial-rapist clinton Chimaera into an ordinary serial rapist with just one head, i.e., bill's. The co-conspiring, aiding-and-abetting, power-and-treasure-lusting co-rapist becomes just another poor victim of her serial-rapist husband.
WE MUST NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN.
Although she's famous for playing the victim card, I don't think it will work in this case due to her treatment of Bill's other rape victims. Of course she may try it anyway.
Besides, at that period of time B.J. was busy with Gennifer Flowers.
And Chelsea doesn't exactly look like B.J., does she ??
"Although she's famous for playing the victim card, I don't think it will work in this case due to her treatment of Bill's other rape victims. Of course she may try it anyway."
I don't know if Hillary's behind this book. But it seems to me as if this book benefits her. I'm sure it will contain a laundry list of genuine wrongdoing, with this ridiculuous rape charge served on top. Then, in 2008, when somebody asks her about her genuine wrongdoing (commodities trading, etc), she'll declare that the charges made by the "right-wing conspiracy" have been "discredited."
I just hope that Rush et al. don't fall for unsubstantiated allegations such as these.
This is the worse-case scenario. The better outcome is that a clinton-on-clinton (excuse the pun) rape is so unbelievable that it invalidates all the clinton rape charges. the problem with this alternative is that this charge, for numerous reasons, is not so unbelievable.
The allegation JB made were perfectly legitimate, but this is just B.S. to sell a book.
If you're going to go after HC there's more than enough "irregularities" she alone can spout off to put herself in the HOT seat!
I doubt that The Most Ethical President In History actually
raped Hillary.Of all the stories regarding him and his
sexual amorality:Paula Jones,true....Kathleen Willey,true..
Jennifer Flowers,true.....Juanita Broderick,very probably true...but Hillary,I doubt it.
Futhermore, hasn't this guy learned yet that BC and HC are
a political inseparable team?
That label was permanently attached to slick many years ago....this is about redefining poor hillary as a victim.
If successfully, the effect will be to neutralize the glaring reality that, for more years than you can count, hillary knowingly, willingly and actively aidied and abetted her serial rapist husband for her own personal and political gains.
As for Chelsea being the result of said rape...I seem to remember Bill telling one of his other victims that he was sterile (due to a childhood illness) so not to worry.
Then there is the problem of who Chelsea looks like...and it sure ain't Bill.
