Chris Isham, a top ABC News producer, distributed the memo which lays out out the scintillating facts surrounding the alleged incident, and the interest sparked in the subject by Republican Congressmen who last week were permitted to review the Starr documentation of the case The memo states that Arizona Republican Congressman J.
Hayworth told ABC News -- off-the-record -- that the material makes Clinton out to be "a sexual predator. Jennings -- reputed to have a eye for the ladies much like the President's -- has vehemently objected to ABC news reporting on the subject. The memo, in an apparent shot at Jennings, states, " ABC News memo follows: Tuesday, December 22, Juanita Broaddrick was subpoenaed in the Paula Jones case.
She filed an affidavit that said "These allegations that Clinton had made unwelcome advances towards her are untrue. It is unclear if he raped or assaulted her but that is the allegation made by Phillip Yoakum. Yoakum is a Fayetteville man who says Broaddrick told him in that she was raped by Clinton in the late 70's.
I interviewed Yoakum in March and found him entirely uncredible. He had facts wrong, was a total Clinton-hater, and his claims to being friends with Broaddrick are untrue. The other person who supposedly knows about what took place is Norma Rogers-Kelsay, a friend of Broaddrick's who went to the convention with her in Little Rock and drove back with her to Van Buren where they live. Tamara Lipper spoke with Rogers on the phone in March.
Rogers said that Yoakum was telling the truth. She was with Broaddrick before and after the incident and said that she was in "quite bad shape after. The man took her to Bill Clinton and he apologized for hurting her and asked if there was anything he could do.
She didn't understand at the time why he had taken that step but soon realized the real reason after he announced his candidacy for President a few months later. In the campaign these rumors began to circulate and Sheffield Nelson, a longtime Arkansas Clinton-hater, tried to get her to come forward.
Yoakum evidently was at a meeting with Rogers and Broaddrick where they discussed the incident and whether or not Broaddrick should talk publicly about it. Evidently Broaddrick was worried no one would believe her similar to what happened with Gennifer Flowers.. Late last week Republicans began to stream over to the Ford building to look at the materials.
According to a source of mine there were about two dozen members who went to look at the material on Thursday and Friday. Many Republicans were talking up the new material as evidence that could come up at trial because it would show a pattern and practice of behavior paying off or influencing women to keep quiet.
Inglis under federal rule of evidence B something showing a pattern or practice can be admissible in a trial Still, the potential that a rape charge could be leveled at the President makes the story one that can't be totally ignored.. Broaddrick doesn't hold Lisa Myers responsible for the building media nightmare, according to a source. Broaddrick is now being described as "emotionally drained" after the session with Myers. And since giving the interview, Broaddrick has confessed to a friend: Pro-Myers associates inside of the network question why the original Myers piece on Broaddrick aired, and now the actual interview with "Jane Doe 5" has hit a broadcast wall.
And while no final decision on airing the interview has been made, the Myers situation has caused confusion throughout the ranks at NBC Perhaps what Juanita Broaddrick says happened to her some 20 years ago.. That friend, Phillip Yoakum, reminded Broaddrick of her nightmare in a letter he wrote hoping to convince her to go public in Now, I've learned that there seems to be additional evidence out there not in the Ford building and not in OIC's office corroborating the allegations that Jane Doe 5 was assaulted by Bill Clinton and then intimidated into covering it up.
I suspect you'll be reading about it soon. Let's assume that story is true, or assume it isn't, it doesn't really matter. But again, would anybody be surprised? Would any opinions change? What is it about this man that his actual allies think he is capable of despicable things and they just don't care?.
In an exclusive interview late last week, onetime Arkansas gubernatorial candidate Sheffield Nelson told NewsMax. Bill Clinton had raped her. Nelson refused to identify the victim but did emphasize that the woman, a friend of his wife's, was not Juanita Broaddrick.
Reached at his Little Rock home on Thursday, Nelson revealed that he had met with Broaddrick and her friend, Phillip Yoakum, at her office in October Both Yoakum and Nelson were trying to convince Broaddrick to go public with her devastating account of a bruising sexual assault by Clinton 14 years earlier.
Two years before that meeting, Nelson had failed to unseat Clinton in an election that earned the future president his fifth term as governor. Nelson informed Broaddrick that her unwanted encounter with Clinton was not unique. Still, Nelson told NewsMax. In a Little Rock hotel room, Bill Clinton forced Broaddrick onto a bed where he "held her down forcibly and bit her lips," says the report.
I felt paralyzed and was starting to cry. Then he looked at me and said, 'You better put some ice on that. They had not been there more than five minutes, Mrs. Broaddrick says, when he moved close as they stood looking out at the Arkansas River.
He pointed out an old jailhouse and told her that when he became governor, he was going to renovate that place..
But the conversation did not linger long on the candidate's plans for social reform. Broaddrick relates, he then put his arms around her, startling her.. The argument failed to persuade Mr. Clinton, who, she says, got her onto the bed, held her down forcibly and bit her lips. The sexual entry itself was not without some pain, she recalls, because of her stiffness and resistance. When it was over, she says, he looked down at her and said not to worry, he was sterile--he had had mumps when he was a child.
Rogers related in an interview, in a state of shock--lips swollen to double their size, mouth discolored from the biting, her pantyhose torn in the crotch. Rogers applied ice to Juanita's mouth, and they drove back home, stopping along the way for more ice..
Hers has been a story hidden in plain sight since last March, referred to in vague terms in Jones's court filings and Starr's impeachment report yet never explicitly a part of the now-concluded congressional debate over whether Clinton should be removed from office for trying to cover up his affair with Monica S. Few in official Washington who have been privy to the Broaddrick story have been entirely sure what to make of it..
With no witnesses, Broaddrick's story is difficult to verify. But her account is corroborated to an extent by one person who has said they talked about it contemporaneously. Norma Rogers, an employee and friend who traveled with her to the conference, told The Post in separate interviews that she returned to the hotel room that day to find Broaddrick badly shaken and her lip swollen.
They quickly packed and left, stopping to get ice for Broaddrick's lip on the way back to Van Buren, both later said. Rogers, who has since moved to a suburb of Tulsa, Okla. Before the two got back in touch, Rogers told The Post last spring: We were close enough at the time that if something else had happened I believe she would have told me. Broaddrick said Clinton called her at the nursing home several times afterward but she would never take the call. The next time she recalled seeing him was in , when she said she was summoned out of another nursing home meeting in Little Rock to meet with him.
He kept trying to hold my hand," she said. He said, 'Can you ever forgive me? I'm not the same man I used to be. I told him, 'You just go to hell. Looking back, Broaddrick said yesterday that she does not believe she made a mistake by keeping quiet in but wishes she had come forward in It was late on the afternoon of Wednesday, Jan. At loose ends before she began her new job in New York, Lewinsky was calling Tripp repeatedly from pay phones, for fear of being overheard--or wiretapped.
Pulled out of a meeting at the Pentagon, Tripp finally got Lewinsky's call. According to a source familiar with Tripp's account, Tripp believed that Lewinsky had been crying. Lewinsky told Tripp that she had some "new ideas" about how Linda could testify in the Paula Jones case Her reasoning was that ' things were different back then", what Clinton had with Juanita was sex, not rape. Her giggles after her comments were enough to make me puke. I would like to thank NOW for making this all possible..
Anyone else hear it? Former New York State Lt. And, moreover, polls show we DON'T like this guy--we just have been convinced that his job performance is terrific…. She retold the story. Ingraham drove home the point, 'a rapist is in the White House'. Alter said she was credible, Warren agreed. Taylor said this would have been a story no matter who was president. With Carter, it wouldn't have been believed, but with Clinton, it is believeable.
Hockenberry said no demo guests would come on tonight, clearly they were waiting to see how it unfolded. Hockenberry took calls for the last half of the show, and said every call but one was against the president. Every call from a woman indicted the president, supported Juanita saying her actions over the years fit the profile of a raped woman….
Feminist lawyer Gloria Allred says she believes the public "has a right to know if there is a rapist in the White House as president,"just as it should know if a murderer is president Broaddrick's accusation against Mr.
