Former President Bill Clinton dodged questions from a reporter Thursday over the resurfacing of rape allegations from Juanita Broaddrick.
Broaddrick, who accused Clinton of rape in 1999, alleged again on Wednesday that the former president “raped” and “tried to silence” her.
I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away.

Clinton previously denied Broaddrick’s allegations through an attorney.
After speaking at a Cedar Rapids, Iowa, event for Hillary’s campaign, a reporter with the conservative Daily Caller confronted him.
“What’s your reaction to Juanita Broaddrick’s reemergence?” Daily Caller reporter Kerry Picket asked multiple times.
Clinton didn’t answer, only choosing to comment on a question about Republican frontrunner Donald Trump making an issue of his “past transgressions.”
“I don’t have any response. If he wins the Republican nomination, we’ll have plenty of time to talk about it. I have no interest in getting involved in their politics or doing anything except trying to help Hillary,” Clinton said.
“What’s your reaction to Juanita Broaddrick’s response?” Clinton was again asked multiple times.
“He has said a lot of things. I have no response,” Clinton replied.
