    The NY Times article didn't mention Hillary engaging in any cover-up with respect to Willey or Broaddrick.

    The first article (in the OP) mentioned Broaddrick.
    The 2nd mentioned neither.

    But the article doesn't say anything about Hillary engaging in a cover-up or digging up dirt on Broaddrick.

    The Wikipedia says that at a small fundraiser 3 weeks after the assault by Bill, Hillary went over to Broaddrick, took her hand and said, "I just want you to know how much Bill and I appreciate what you do for him.”

    Did you entirely miss Broaddrick's interpretation of that exchange?

    And from the response from the Clinton defenders I see you are doing an excellent job. Have fun with your project.

    No, I just missed the part where there were any allegations that Hillary was involved in a cover-up or digging up dirt on Broaddrick. It seems Broaddrick didn't even allege the rape until 20 years later, in 1999.

    As we see, the climate of voicing sexual abuse is changing.
    Many who have been silent, are now coming forward with credible claims, eg, the Roy Moore scandal.
    So we shouldn't dismiss claims just because the victim has long been silent.
    Their reasons for silence are understandable, particularly when the abuser wields great power.

    Yes, that article repeats what I had read about Broaddrick's allegations. I believe her and her witness. I believe that Bill sexually assaulted her. My point was about your allegations about Hillary. For all I know, Bill never told Hillary about this assault.

    It's been in the news for decades.
    It is in one of the articles wherein Broaddrick described her encounter with Hilda.
    If I've been unable to document it for you so far, I doubt that I ever can.

    What are you referring to as "it"?

    You haven't provided any information claiming or even suggesting the Hillary engaged in any cover-up or dirt-digging on Broaddrick. Correct?

    To be fair, you have not provided any evidence of Hilary’s complicity beyond saying that it’s a theory that’s been talked about a lot, and claiming that there’s something in one of the articles that supports such an interpretation, without actually providing the excerpt. I mean, let’s be honest, there’s been lots of negative Clinton rumors, much of which is wildly far fetched, poorly evidenced, or blown way out of proportion. Why should we believe this one, sans any evidence, beyond rumors and your own insinuations in this thread?

    Edit: ooh I backtrack some. Post 24 does have an article excerpt posted.

    Sigh...does no Clinton fan ever read anything which doesn't heap praise upon them.
    I provided readable links.
    The other poster read the relevant portion implicating Hillary, & he simply denied it was there.
    Have you read the links I provided?

    Oh, good.
    Opinions will vary, but at least we read the same things.
