Accusation against Bill Clinton aired in email
WASHINGTON - A January 2016 email from Clinton's personal lawyer, David Kendall, to her campaign chairman, John Podesta, followed up on a phone call to provide a history of allegations made by the woman who accuses Bill Clinton of raping her in the late 1970s.
The email appears in a release of hacked material from WikiLeaks.
Juanita Broaddrick was among the three past accusers of the former president who attended last week's presidential debate in St. Louis at the invitation of Donald Trump. Bill Clinton has denied the rape accusation made by Broaddrick, and it was never adjudicated by a criminal court.
The documents in the WikiLeaks release include the affidavit that Broaddrick signed saying that Clinton did not assault her and the independent counsel's history of the Paula Jones case in which Broaddrick later received immunity from any prosecution for perjury if she changed her story.
Kendall wrote in the email to Podesta, "Voila! She did, disavowing her sworn affidavit and sworn deposition testimony." He concluded, "Please let me know if there's anything else I can provide about this slimefest."
