In Light of #MeToo Movement, Author Ronan Farrow Says Clinton Rape Accusation ‘Overdue For Revisiting’
Author and journalist Ronan Farrow, whose voice for the Harvey Weinstein victims lead to the famous #MeToo movement, has some thoughts on former President Bill Clinton. While on the HBO show “Real Time” with Bill Maher, Farrow was asked what would happen to the former president in today’s “climate.” Would he have survived any, let alone all, the sexual allegations brought against him.
Farrow responded that Clinton’s case is “overdue for revisiting” on the merits that he was “credibly accused of rape.” He added, “That has nothing to do with gray areas. I think that the Juanita Broaddrick claim has been overdue for revisiting.” Farrow is referring to the 1999 case in which Juanita Broaddrick said Clinton had raped her in a Little Rock hotel room in 1978.
Clinton was Arkansas attorney general at the time and running for governor. He has denied the event ever took place, and has been protected by the Democratic Party ever since. A luxury that Farrow thinks Bill may soon lose. “I’m heartened by the fact that people now routinely express outrage about Clinton, and particularly those more serious allegations about him” said Farrow.
Undoubtedly Democrats, progressives and feminists will be in full support as they are the same people that fought so hard to Kavanaugh’s accuser speak.
