While GOP nominee Donald Trump has been facing an onslaught of sexual abuse claims recently, many wonder why these women didn’t come out in past decades — or even at the beginning of the presidential race — with these claims. That alone doesn’t disprove their allegations, but it does add a layer of suspicion worth investigating.
It’s different with former President Bill Clinton. That man has been accused of sexual assault since before he was even president, and many of his accusers haven’t been quiet for decades. Trump brought a handful of women to the second presidential debate who’ve been publicly accusing Bill of sexually abusing them for decades.
Now, right ahead of tonight’s third and final presidential debate, a new accuser has just surfaced. And unlike most of those who’ve come forward in the waning weeks of this presidential election, this time it’s Bill Clinton once again being accused.
A former local television news reporter in Arkansas claims she was groped by Bill Clinton in 1980, according to Breitbart. Breitbart posted an exclusive video interview with former KLMN-TV reporter Leslie Millwee, in which she says the former president rubbed himself against her and reached climax, molesting her on three separate occasions that year.
“He came up behind me and started rubbing my shoulders and running his hands down toward my breasts. And I was just stunned. I froze. I asked him to stop. He laughed,” she said. “I’m asking him the whole time, ‘Please do not do this. Do not touch me.”As Breitbart reports: Speaking publicly for the first time in a Breitbart News video exclusive interview, a former local television news reporter from Arkansas claims she was sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton on three separate occasions in 1980. Leslie Millwee says that on two of the alleged occasions, Clinton groped her while he rubbed himself against her and reached climax.
After these alleged sexual assaults, Millwee claims, Clinton showed up at her apartment and knocked on her door for several minutes while trying to talk his way inside. She says that Clinton departed after she purportedly refused to respond.
Millwee says she was thinking about coming out publicly around 1998, when the Monica Lewinsky scandal began to dominate the national conversation. But at the time, she says she decided to remain quiet, in part fearing for her children after watching the way other Clinton sex accusers were treated by the Clintons and the news media.
Breitbart corroborated Milwee’s allegations with three friends and former co-workers she told about the assault in the late 1990s.
As has been said before, what we know the Clintons have done is worse than anything Trump has ever said.
