Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who famously accused former President Bill Clinton of raping her during his 1978 gubernatorial campaign in Arkansas, took to Twitter Wednesday to address Chelsea Clinton’s downplaying of her father’s sexual misconduct.

“Here is my response to Chelsea Clinton’s statement about her father’s sexual misdeeds,” wrote Ms. Broaddrick, a Donald Trump supporter who stepped back into the national spotlight recently after years of silence about the alleged rape.

“Chelsea you said you don’t remember a time in your life that your parents weren’t being attacked. There’s a very good reason for this — your parents are not good people,” she wrote in a series of tweets. “[Y]our father was, and probably still is, a sexual predator. Your mother has always lied and covered up for him.

“I say again, ‘I was 35 when Bill Clinton Raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73. It never goes away,’” she wrote. “The truth is what has brought the attacks on your family and you are smart enough to know that by now.”

Ms. Broaddrick said Ms. Clinton is “very aware” of her parents’ alleged crimes, but she’s “too interested in self-gain” to address them.

In an interview published Tuesday, Ms. Clinton brushed off Mr. Trump’s comments about her father’s marital infidelities, telling Cosmopolitan magazine that “being attacked” is a tradition in her family.

“I don’t remember a time in my life when my parents and my family weren’t being attacked, and so it just sort of seems to be in that tradition, unfortunately,” the 36-year-old told the magazine.

Mr. Trump said after Monday night’s first presidential debate that he hadn’t mentioned Bill Clinton‘s infidelities out of respect for Mr. Clinton‘s daugther.

Ms. Broaddrick told one Twitter user that Mr. Trump is “no saint,” but he’s “1000 times better than Hillary.”

“[W]e must do all we can to elect Trump and then they will no longer be protected,” she added.
