Hillary Clinton: Allegations against my husband different from those against Kavanaugh

Hillary Clinton rejected the notion that there are similarities between allegations of sexual assault made against her husband and those against Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

And she channeled her inner “right-wing conspiracy” theorist to make the argument.

In an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour to discuss the speaking tour she and former President Bill Clinton were embarking on, just hours after the Kavanaugh smear had been defeated, Hillary noted that her husband was subjected to a thorough and highly “partisan investigation.”

“Are you prepared to answer those questions?” Amanpour asked of Bill’s misdeeds. “How do you see that similar or different from what President Trump is being accused of and Kavanaugh and others today?”

Mrs. Bill Clinton didn’t state the obvious – that two of her husband’s affairs, one involving taking advantage of a White House intern, Monica Lewinsky, and the other involving Gennifer Flowers, were admitted to. Another involved a settlement to spare him a trial, and still another involved a credible allegation of rape.

While the Kavanaugh allegations were nothing more than a poorly coordinated smear that fell apart when porn lawyer Michael Avenatti jumped the shark by having a woman accuse him of gang-rape.

No, Hillary said her husband had been thoroughly investigated by right-wingers … and that’s the difference.

“If, you know, the Republicans, starting with President Trump on down, want a comparison, they should welcome such an investigation themselves,” Clinton added, nodding her head as if to convince herself of the lie she just told.

Laughable. Laughable both on its surface – Bill is a proven philanderer while Kavanaugh is not – and laughable when you start digging even deeper.

Just ask Juanita Broaddrick, the woman behind the aforementioned credible allegation of rape, who countered Clinton’s claim that her story has ever been investigated intensely.

Broaddrick, a former nursing home employee, accused Clinton of raping her decades earlier when he was a gubernatorial candidate in Arkansas.

And she doesn’t appreciate Hillary pretending her allegations were ever properly handled:

Broaddrick currently has a petition running demanding a federal investigation into alleged “sex crimes committed by Bill Clinton.”

If Hillary wants a thorough investigation, perhaps she should put her name on the dotted line.

Additionally, Broaddrick has consistently chastised the media for not questioning Clinton about her accusations.

Indeed, NBC didn’t broadcast Broaddrick’s emotional interview explaining the Clinton rape until after the impeachment hearing was held and Clinton was acquitted.

That doesn’t sound like an intense investigation on either the part of the media or the federal government, to be honest.

If Hillary wants to discuss a major difference between how her husband’s infidelity, assaults, and lying under oath were treated compared with the specious allegations of the same against Trump or Kavanaugh, she need look no further than this video clip:

Here we have the Democratic Party lauding its hero after it was proven that he lied under oath and was subsequently impeached.

Clinton is proven to have engaged in multiple cases of sexual misconduct and is hailed as a hero by his party and media. Kavanaugh has been the target baseless claims by a handful of women, and he is viewed as evil incarnate.

That’s the hypocritical difference between the two major parties today.

As for Hillary Clinton’s claim that the allegations of sexual misconduct against her husband and Brett Kavanaugh are different, in a manner of speaking, she’s right.
