Women accuse Bill Clinton at Trump event

19 October, 2016
 In a sensational move, Donald Trump has held a meeting with several women who have accused Bill Clinton of rape and other unwanted sexual advances.

The event, in front of media and broadcast live, was held just an hour before the second presidential candidate debate with Clinton's wife, Hillary.

It's the clearest sign yet that he plans to use Bill Clinton's extramarital affairs to try to distract from the swirling controversy over his own predatory remarks about women.

Trump is under enormous pressure from his own Republican Party after the release of a 2005 video in which the businessman can be heard saying his fame allows him to "do anything'' to women.

Trump refused to answer questions from reporters about the video during his meeting in a hotel conference room with Paula Jones, Kathy Shelton, Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey.

Some of the women seated alongside him, however, were graphic in their accusations against the Clintons.

"Mr Trump may have said some bad words, but Bill Clinton raped me and Hillary Clinton threatened me,'' Broaddrick said.

"I don't think there's any comparison.''

Broaddrick, a former Arkansas nursing home administrator, first claimed 17 years ago that Bill Clinton raped her during a meeting in Little Rock in 1978. Her lawsuit against him was dismissed in 2001 and criminal charges were never filed. Clinton has denied the Ğ¿allegations.

Trump has long hinted he would raise Bill Clinton's sexual history at debates.
In what was billed as a videotaped apology for the 2005 videotaped remarks, Trump said `"Bill Clinton has actually abused women'' and Hillary Clinton "bullied, attacked, shamed and intimidated'' her husband's "victims.''

Hillary Clinton's campaign dismissed the meeting with the women as a stunt, and said it "not suprised" to see Trump engage in a "destructive race to the bottom".
Trump is trying to change the subject from his own conduct. Even before Friday's new revelations of his sexual remarks about women, his campaign was slumping.

But the release of the 2005 video has some leading Republicans convinced the damage is insurmountable.
