Ahead of the third and final presidential debate, a new woman is coming forward to accuse Bill Clinton of sexual assault.

Leslie Millwee told her story in an interview with Breitbart News. She says that she was sexually assaulted by Clinton three separate times during 1980 when Clinton was the governor of Arkansas.

On Wednesday afternoon, CNN reported that Millwee will be one of Donald Trump’s guests at the presidential debate.

Here’s what you need to know about Leslie Millwee and her story.


1. She Interviewed Clinton for an Arkansas TV Station

During 1980, Leslie Millwee worked as a television reporter in Arkansas. She says that she interviewed the state’s governor, Bill Clinton, at least 20 times for the station in Fort Chaffee. This was in part because she was covering the story of Cuban refugees escaping detainment in Fort Chaffee, but she had interviewed the governor many times before that.

She says that Clinton would frequently make inappropriate comments towards her at the TV station, calling her “pretty girl” and following her around the station. This allegedly progressed into Clinton touching her shoulder and making other advances, she says in her Breitbart interview.

At the time that Clinton allegedly harassing Millweee, she was 20 years old and Clinton was 34.

Millwee alleges that she was assaulted by Bill Clinton on at least three occasions. The first was when Clinton reportedly approached her while she was editing in the TV studio. Millwee told Breitbart that Clinton started rubbing her shoulders and then moved his hands down towards her breast, and she says that when she asked him to stop, Clinton laughed.

She also says that after this first instance, she confronted Clinton and asked him not to do anything like this ever again. Yet Clinton allegedly made similar advances on her two more times after that.

“That happened on three occasions, and each time it escalated where the aggressive nature of his touch and what he was doing behind me escalated,” she told Breitbart.

Millwee also says that the second time Clinton assaulted her, he was grabbing her while touching himself and he had an orgasm. He did the same on the third instance, Millwee says.

She recalls that after the third assault, she ran into the ladies’ room and began crying. Finally, Millwee says that one night Bill Clinton came to her apartment, knocking on the door and trying to get her to come out. At the time, Millwee says her grandmother was staying with her because Millwee was terrified and did not want to be alone. Eventually, she left the TV station and decided not to go public with her story.


3. She Is One of Eight Women to Accuse Clinton of Sexual Assault

Millwee is far from the first woman to make similar accusations against Bill Clinton.

There’s also Juanita Broaddrick, a woman who says that Bill Clinton raped her in a hotel room in the 1970s. Broaddrick also alleges that Hillary Clinton was aware of this and that she tried to silence her. Then there’s Paula Jones, who says that in 1991, Bill Clinton escorted her back to his hotel room and exposed himself to her. She filed a lawsuit against Clinton, and it was during this case that Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky was discovered. Clinton settled out of court with Paula Jones for $850,000.

Kathleen Willey says that President Clinton groped her without her consent in the oval office in 1993Eileen Wellstone says that Clinton sexually assaulted her outside of a pub in 1969. Sandra Allen James says that she was invited up to Clinton’s hotel room during a fundraiser, and Clinton forcibly put his hand up her dress. Christy Zercher, a flight attendant, alleges that Clinton grabbed her inappropriately and exposed himself to her on a plane. And two unnamed college students from Yale and the University of Arkansas respectively have said that Clinton assaulted them.

This is in addition to women who have accused Clinton of inappropriate behavior and women who have come forward saying they had a consensual affair with Clinton.

Both Republicans and Democrats are in a tricky situation when it comes to these allegations of sexual assault, often believing all of the women on one side but doubting all of the women on the other side.

Donald Trump in particular is now raising Millwee’s story as an issue despite what he has said about his own accusers in the past few weeks. Trump and his surrogates have mocked these women, saying that the fact that they didn’t come forward until weeks before an election proves that they’re liars who simply want to ensure he doesn’t win in November. Now Trump is promoting the story of a woman who did not come forward about her alleged sexual assault until weeks before an election, which is exactly what Trump had been complaining about.

In fact, sexual assault victims often do not tell their stories until much later, and most of the women who accused Trump of sexual assault said they were afraid of what Trump, a powerful man, would do to them if they came forward. This is exactly how Millwee says she felt about Bill Clinton, telling Breitbart that she did not know how she could possibly defend herself against a powerful governor and saying that that’s why she waited so long.


5. Millwee Also Places Blame on Hillary Clinton

Some Democrats may wonder why stories of Bill Clinton’s misconduct are relevant to the 2016 election, considering it’s not Bill who is running for president. Clinton critics argue that these stories are relevant because of how Hillary Clinton dealt with the women making accusations against her husband.

Indeed, Hillary Clinton reportedly worked behind the scenes alongside President Clinton’s aides to discredit women coming forward with stories about Bill. Those working for Clinton referred to these women’s stories popping up in the news as “bimbo eruptions,” according to The Washington Post.

For the most part, this attempt to discredit women had to do with those going public to say they had consensual affairs with the president, such as Monica Lewinsky and Gennifer Flowers. But Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who says Bill Clinton raped her, alleges that she once met Hillary Clinton at a fundraiser and that Hillary tried to intimidate Broaddrick and get her to keep quiet. She says that she interpreted this from Hillary Clinton telling her, “Do you understand everything you do?”

Broaddrick also told The Washington Post that she considers Hillary Clinton to be an enabler.

“I always felt if she’d been a stronger person…she could have done something about his behavior,” she said.

In her interview with Breitbart, when asked why she didn’t come forward until now, Leslie Millwee says that she almost did so in the 1990s during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, but she saw the hell these other women went through and was not prepared for that.

  1. Bill Clinton is not running for president. Hillary is. Furthermore, I do believe Bill is a womanizer, that if a woman is interested in him, he can’t resist. Rapist, no I will never believe that. I’m 70 yrs old and in my lifetime have know a lot of Donald Trumps’ and a lot of Bill Clintons’. Bill is weak, Trump is aggressive. There is a difference and believe me as having been considered a beautiful woman, I have met them all.

    • I agree. Further, this article is ridiculously inaccurate. There were no Cuban refugees at Ft Chaffee, and I don’t believe there was ever a TV station KLMN in Arkansas. Great job Brendan..NOT

      • I know it’s obvious you don’t live in Arkansas as I do. You are a typical stupid democrat who ks all to willing to comment on stuff you know nothing about!!! In fact their is a Fort Chaffee and we did have Cuban refuges sent here. You idiots are always trying to change history to fit yourselves, now, your trying to make hole communities disappear to try and make your denial fit your little brain! WOW!!!

      • Wake up honey. Get out from under your rock into the light. Yes, there were Cuban refugees at Ft. Chaffee in 1980, it was the center of the news nationwide. Yes, there was a TV station, KLMN in Arkansas. Do not fall into Hillary’s trap of lying, it makes you “deplorable”, as Hillary would say.

    • Lets open the white house back up to these awful people who do not have a moral compass. Hilary is just as guilty, she always “stands by my man” regardless of what he does to women.

  2. It is difficult for anyone to miss the significance of these patterns of Bill Clinton, a serial sexual predator, and his wife who actively attempted to destroy these women. HRC who attempts to position herself as a candidate for women, regularly worked to tarnish the reputation of these victims.
    She is also, as Bill Safire of the N.Y. Times once said, “a serial liar”.

  3. Bill may not be running for President but he sure does speeches for Hilary and if Hilary is elected he’ll be back in that White House raping more interns and who knows else
