Twitter Bans Bill Clinton Rape Accuser for Spreading ‘Misleading and Potentially Harmful Information’

Twitter Bans Bill Clinton Rape Accuser for Spreading ‘Misleading and Potentially Harmful Information’

Social media giant has banned ’s rape accuser Juanita Broaddrick for her tweet questioning the effectiveness of coronavirus vaccines.

Broaddrick provided Fox News Digital with a copy of the notification from Twitter announcing her suspension.

Fox’s Lawrence Richard has more:

In the statement, Twitter suggested Broaddrick delete the tweet should she wish to have account access restored.

“We understand that during times of crisis and instability, it is difficult to know what to do to keep yourself and your loved ones safe. Under this policy, we require the removal of content that may pose a risk to people’s health, including content that goes directly against guidance from authoritative sources of global and local public health information,” the company said.

Broaddrick became a household name in the late 90s after accusing then-President Clinton of raping her back in 1978. Her accusations came during an interview with “Dateline NBC.”

NBC’s Lisa Myers’ interviewed Broaddrick the day after the U.S. House of Representatives impeached Clinton. However, her bombshell allegations only aired 35 days later — 12 days after the U.S. Senate voted to acquit Clinton.

At the time, the vast majority of the mainstream media expressed skepticism of Broaddrick’s claim with victim-blaming questions, like why she didn’t come forward sooner. In fairness, public perceptions about allegations were very different at the time.

Finally, Broaddrick’s claim received some validation from liberal outlets during the #MeToo reckoning of 2017.

The Atlantic and The New York Times published articles, in particular, that outlined why Broaddrick’s allegations against the former president were among the most troubling and credible in recent memory.

Unfortunately, they were two decades too late.

During the 2016 presidential election, The Daily Wire asked Broaddrick about meeting Hillary after her alleged encounter:

Speaking to The Daily Wire back in 2016, Broaddrick recounted the interaction with Hillary: “She threatened me at that fundraiser, that’s foremost in my mind,” she said. “I’ll never forget that; I’ll never forget that encounter with her that people keep minimizing, saying that, ‘Well, she didn’t mean that.’”

“I felt like she knew [I was raped], it was just the look in her eyes and the anger on her face, because I was so afraid at that time of anyone knowing what had happened to me,” she added.

President Clinton’s Twitter profile remains active. He has never spoken publicly about Broaddrick’s claims.

Late Sunday night, Elon Musk announced he had declined to join Twitter’s board, which means he won’t be restricted by how much of the company he can buy.

Musk tweeted repeatedly over the weekend how he’d like to see Twitter make changes and confront its censorship. How optimistic are you Musk will reform Twitter? As always, tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
