Ronan Farrow took a shot at former President Bill Clinton on Friday, saying the “credible” rape claims against the ex commander in chief are “overdue for revisiting.”
Farrow made the remarks during a panel discussion on “Real Time with Bill Maher” as the group was discussing the recent resignation of Rep. Katie Hill, who was accused of engaging in improper relationships with staffers — one of which she fessed up to.
Maher posed a question to his guests: “Could Bill Clinton, if he had done what he did in 1998 survived today? Or would his own party have thrown him under the bus?”
The host, in his line of questioning, was trying to address a possible parallel, or lack thereof, between the outcome of the Hill scandal compared to Clinton’s infamous Monica Lewinsky affair.
But Farrow, rather than answering directly, pivoted to the accusations by Juanita Broaddrick that Clinton, while attorney general of Arkansas in 1978, raper her in a hotel room.
“I think it’s actually important to interject,” Farrow chimed in.
“Bill Clinton is a different conversation. He has been credibly accused of rape … That is, I think the Juanita Broaddrick claim has been overdue for revisiting.”
Clinton has denied the allegations.
The former president wound up being impeached in 1998 by the House of Representatives for lying under oath and obstruction of justice after his relationship with Lewinsky became public.
He remained in office as the Senate in 1999 acquitted him, and he served as commander in chief until his second term ended in 2001.
