I mentioned last night that Trump appeared to be approaching “ramming speed” in going after Bill and Hillary Clinton.
It looks like that is on track.
The Hill reports:
Donald Trump has brought to Sunday’s presidential debate in St. Louis three women who have accused former President Bill Clinton of sexual assault or rape and a fourth who said Hillary Clinton defended the man who raped her as a child.
Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, Kathy Shelton and Paula Jones all attended a pre-debate press conference hours before Trump is to take the stage in the second presidential debate against Hillary Clinton.
All four gave statements of support for Trump while seated at a table with the Republican presidential nominee less than 90 minutes before the debate.
It’s unclear whether the women will actually be in the debate hall….
Broaddrick has accused President Clinton of raping her in 1978, while Clinton was the Arkansas Attorney General. This morning, Trump retweeted video of her recounting the accusations during an interview with Breitbart News.
Jones sued President Clinton for sexual harassment and the case ultimately settled. Willey also accused him of sexual harassment while he served as president.
Hillary Clinton was appointed to defend the man accused of raping Shelton when she was 12, and the man pleaded to a lesser charge.
The group of women said they were standing by Trump despite the comments he made in the video.
“Actions speak louder than words. Mr. Trump may have said some bad words but Bill Clinton raped me and Hillary Clinton threatened me,” Broaddrick said.
“I don’t think there’s any comparison.”
