Hillary: 'Kavanaugh Accuser Deserves Justice' - Bill Clinton's Victim Trolls Her
HRC claims Christine Blasey Ford 'deserves the benefit of the doubt' for accusations
Hillary Clinton appeared on MSNBC on Tuesday night, weighing in on the allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, saying that his accuser "deserves the benefit of the doubt."
Hillary's comments didn't go down too well with her critics, however, including one woman who accused Bill Clinton of raping her and was famously not "given the benefit of the doubt" by Democrats.
Clinton was responding to the sexual assault accusation against Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh, that allegedly occurred 35 years ago when he was in high school, yet the claims coincidently emerged just in time for the confirmation proceedings.
Hillary argued that, regarding the claims by the accuser Christine Blasey Ford, "we should give the benefit of the doubt to the court and the country" rather than continuing with the scheduled confirmation process.
According to the Daily Wire, when asked by host Rachel Maddow if Democrats should play the kind of "hardball" Republicans played with blocking the Merrick Garland nomination, or "just go through regular order with whoever Trump has to put up next if the Kavanaugh nomination fails," Clinton called for neither "unilateral disarmament or Defcon-10."
What she really wanted to see, she made clear, was an investigation.
"I remember back in the Thomas hearing when Senator Byrd was asked what he was going to do, and he said in a situation like this we should give the benefit of the doubt to the court and the country," she said.
"And that’s what the Republicans should be doing right now, from the White House down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Senate, give the benefit of the doubt to the court and the country.
"And that means have an investigation that will then lead to a hearing that will then lead to a vote if appropriate."
Republicans have offered Kavanaugh's accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, the chance to testify in a public or private hearing on Monday, an offer her lawyer currently says she will not accept, demanding an FBI investigation first.
An investigation into Ford's accusation by the FBI, Clinton told MSNBC, is "a reasonable request."
"The White House could answer [Ford’s request] very quickly by asking the FBI to reopen its background check and to take into account the accusation that's been made and to gather the evidence about what can be known.
"So far, they haven't done that," she said.
"And as someone who has watched this process unfold over many years, there does have to be some direction given to the FBI to pursue an investigation."
Clinton's comments have elicited some strong responses, including from Bill Clinton accuser Juanita Broaddrick, who maintains that Bill raped her and Hillary threatened her to remain quiet:
Yeah, Eric, I agree......just like they swooped in and investigated my Rape Allegations against Bill Clinton.....NOT! https://t.co/7y8wRXBdKa— Juanita Broaddrick (@atensnut) September 19, 2018
yes, she deserves the benefit of the doubt....which is why she needs to bring her a$$ into court and face her accusations. Kav deserves the benefit of the doubt too...innocent until proven guilty doggone it.— ♑️🚀Jamereia🇺🇸 (@J_Shantel_Ro) September 19, 2018
Where's Monica? Hillary didn't give her the benefit of the doubt & Monica had indisputable evidence!— Firefly (@phyrefligh) September 19, 2018
Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton also agreed with Juanita Broaddrick:
For decades, Broaddrick has accused Bill Clinton of violently raping her in 1978.
