The allegations raised against Donald Trump in a recent New York Times article are nothing compared to the Clintons’ history, the presumptive Republican nominee said in an interview with Fox News’ “Hannity” aired Wednesday night.
“For example, I looked at The New York Times. Are they going to interview Juanita Broaddrick? Are they going to interview Paula Jones? Are they going to interview Kathleen Willey?” Hannity asked Trump, according to a transcript of the show. “In one case, it’s about exposure. In another case, it’s about groping and fondling and touching against a woman’s will.”
Trump replied, “And rape.”
“And rape,” Hannity repeated.
“And big settlements, massive settlements,” Trump added. “And lots of other things. And impeachment for lying.”
“Smearing,” Hannity said. Trump then mentioned Bill Clinton being disbarred for five years in Arkansas. “You know, he lost his law license, OK? He couldn’t practice law. And you don’t read about this on Clinton,” he said.
Of the three women Hannity mentioned, Jones accused Bill Clinton of exposing himself to her at a Little Rock, Arkansas, hotel in 1991, while Willey has accused Clinton of groping her in 1993. Broaddrick, who was known as Jane Doe No. 5 during the Paula Jones trial before coming forward, alleged in 1999 that Clinton had sexually assaulted and raped her in 1978. In 1999, Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, called Broaddrick’s allegations “absolutely false.”
Broaddrick, speaking to Breitbart News in an article published earlier Wednesday, said the Times should devote its energy to investigating claims of sexual assault against Bill Clinton.
Both Bill and Hillary Clinton have refused to comment on the issue during the campaign, though Trump has previously hinted that he would go after the former president’s history with women.
