George Conway said it would be “hypocritical” of Republicans who promoted Juanita Broaddrick’s charges of sexual assault against former President Clinton to not condemn President Trump in response to a new allegation of rape brought against him.conway-trump

“Republicans or conservatives who promoted Broaddrick’s charges would be hypocritical if they fail to champion Carroll and condemn Trump,” Conway, lawyer and husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway wrote in an op-ed published by The Washington Post on Saturday.

 

In the opinion piece, Conway wrote that Trump brought three women who had made allegations of sexual misconduct against Clinton to the second presidential debate in October 2016, including Broaddrick.

“The next night, at a campaign rally in Ambridge, Pa., Trump quoted Broaddrick as saying ‘Hillary Clinton threatened me after Bill Clinton raped me,’ and called Bill Clinton ‘a predator,’ ‘the worst abuser of women ever to sit in the Oval Office,’” he continued.

 

“Broaddrick had told her story nearly two decades earlier, first to the media, and then later in a book,” Conway wrote. “She had recounted how, in 1978, Clinton asked her up to his hotel room. How he allegedly forced himself upon her. How she tried to pull away. How he allegedly bit her lip, then later told her to put ice on it. How she sobbed. How she told some of her friends. How she didn’t tell the police. Clinton denied her accusations.”

 

Conway then detailed what he called a “similar allegation” brought against Trump recently by writer E. Jean Carroll, who came forward on Friday alleging that Trump sexually assaulted her decades ago.

Carroll, the columnist behind “Ask E. Jean” in Elle magazine, alleged in her new book that Trump raped her in a dressing room of a Bergdorf Goodman department store in Manhattan in the mid-1990s.

 

“She, too, tells a story about how she was alone with a man. How in 1995 or 1996 that man, Trump, allegedly forced himself upon her. How she tried to fight back. How she tried to push him away and tried to stomp on his foot,” Conway wrote. “How he penetrated her. How she ran out the door. How she told friends. How she didn’t tell the police.”

 

“Trump also denied the accusations, calling them ‘fake news’ and adding, ‘She is trying to sell a new book — that should indicate her motivation. It should be sold in the fiction section,’” Conway continued.

Conway then juxtaposed Trump’s reaction to the new allegation brought by Carroll with his treatment of Broaddrick, whom the lawyer noted Trump called “courageous.”

 

Conway also wrote in the op-ed that he believed Carroll’s story was more credible than Broaddrick’s claims, saying, “Carroll’s claim, for a number of reasons, actually rests upon a significantly stronger foundation than Broaddrick’s.”
