Former President Bill Clinton found himself facing “explosive new charges” on Monday, with four additional women coming forward and accusing Clinton of sexual misconduct after his time in the Oval Office.
According to the Daily Mail, the new allegations “stem from the period after he left the White House in 2001,” and center on his travels with billionaire Ron Burkle, a private businessman with major financial connections to the Clintons.
“Clinton helped Burkle generate business and flew around the world with a flock of beautiful young women on Burkle’s private jet,” writes the Daily Mail. “The four women, who have not yet revealed their identities, were employed in low-level positions at the Burkle organization when they were in their late teens and claim they were sexually assaulted by the former president.”
“The new charges are likely to revive the debate over why Democrats defended Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky scandal and why liberals and feminists ignored credible charges of sexual assault against the 42nd president, not only from Paula Jones, but also from Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, and others,” the author adds.
The allegations re-ignite Bill Clinton’s sex scandals that rocked the United States for nearly a decade. He is the latest in a series of politicians, including liberal Senator Al Franken, forced to acknowledge prior histories of sexual misconduct.
