NEW YORK – Katherine Prudhomme O’Brien, the New Hampshire state legislator who confronted Hillary Clinton in a town-hall rally in Derry, New Hampshire, during the state primary on Jan. 3, explained to WND in an exclusive telephone interview why she was so upset at reporters who defend Mrs. Clinton by suggesting she should not be blamed for her husband’s infidelity.
“This is about rape, not infidelity,” O’Brien insisted, explaining that at the Derry rally her goal was to confront Hillary about Juanita Broaddrick, a woman who went public in an interview with Dateline NBC that broadcast on Feb. 24, 1999, that Clinton had raped her decades earlier, in 1978, while Clinton was yet Arkansas attorney general.
The YouTube video of O’Brien’s encounter with Hillary at the Derry town-hall rally on Jan. 3 shows O’Brien standing to shout her question at Hillary as Hillary at first ignores her and then declares that she does not intend to call on O’Brien for a question, charging that O’Brien was being “very rude.”
“I asked myself what kind of a wife stays with a man who raped Juanita Broaddrick?” O’Brien asked.
In the YouTube clip, the CNN reporter interviewing O’Brien was clearly antagonistic, agreeing with Hillary that suggesting O’Brien was a Republican operative who only heckled Hillary to embarrass her politically.
What do YOU think? Sound off on Hillary’s ‘explosive temper’ in today’s WND poll.
“I was a Democrat but I became a Republican because of what I saw during the Clinton administration of the so-called ‘women who fight for women’ – the height of hypocrisy,” O’Brien told WND.
A rape victim at age 15
O’Brien explained to WND her reaction to the Juanita Broaddrick allegations was explained in part by the fact that she herself, at age 15, was a rape victim.
O’Brien told WND she had a certified receipt from Clinton’s campaign office proving information O’Brien had sent regarding the Broaddrick rape accusations had been received, yet in an encounter with Hillary the previous summer, Hillary had denied knowing anything about Broaddrick’s allegations.

“If Hillary Clinton does not know about Juanita Broaddrick, she has a dangerous blind spot, she is inept,” O’Brien insisted. “Someone as allegedly astute as Hillary Clinton should understand the difference between rape and infidelity. Why doesn’t Hillary Clinton understand that? What’s her problem? I thought she was the founder of the Rape Crisis Center in Little Rock. I thought she was a lawyer.”
O’Brien’s explanation regarding why Hillary denied knowing about Juanita Broaddrick was Hillary had to lie because it was potentially career-ending for her presidential ambitions if Hillary were to admit she knew about Juanita Broaddrick and still denied her husband had committed rape.
“Everything relies on Hillary Clinton insisting even today that she does not know who Juanita Broaddrick is,” she continued.
“I knew the New Hampshire primary was coming up and I might not have another chance to confront Hillary in person,” she pointed out. “So, I raised my voice, I got to say what I wanted to say, even though Hillary wouldn’t acknowledge me for a question.”
WND asked O’Brien what she wanted to tell Hillary.
“I told her, ‘You won’t acknowledge you know who Juanita Broaddrick is because you know your husband is a rapist. You believe it,’” O’Brien related.
“With that, I told Hillary what I wanted to tell her,” she continued. “I don’t know if the press heard that, because I didn’t have a microphone. But I was speaking as loud as I possibly could and that’s what I was saying. I told Hillary I knew she didn’t have the evidence to prove Juanita is lying, or else she would bring it forward.”
“Instead, Hillary tries to deny she knows anything about Juanita Broaddrick and that’s just not true,” Obrien stressed. “The real story is that Hillary knows exactly who Juanita Broaddrick is and she knows her husband raped her. So what I told Hillary is, “You know your husband raped Juanita Broaddrick and you don’t care. That’s the truth and you know it.’”
O’Brien: ‘I’m sick of this disinformation and dysfunction’
On Saturday, May 14, WND published an article explaining how Kathleen Willey, another victim of a Bill Clinton sexual assault, reacted to a television interview broadcast May 9 in which CNN reporter Chris Cuomo turned antagonistic against GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump for branding Hillary Clinton as the “enabler” of her husband’s sexual crimes.
After watching the televised interaction, Willey penned an open letter to Cuomo, hoping to make sure CNN understands the issue of Bill Clinton’s history of sexual assaults on women from her perspective as a victim.
“I would like to share with you and your friends in the MSM why this subject is important,” Willey pointed out. “This situation is NO longer about that. It’s not about the details of these multiple assaults and rapes involving numerous women who never knew one another, telling the same [or] similar stories.”
O’Brien shared with WND a letter she penned to Willey after the Cuomo interview with Trump.
“A truly brave, strong and intelligent woman would have enough awareness of what was happening around her to know of those sorts of credible allegations about her husband,” O’Brien wrote. “Instead, she pretends to not know who Juanita Broaddrick is.”
“I asked her numerous times on the campaign trail here in New Hampshire what she thought of Broaddrick’s claim that Bill Clinton raped her in the late 70’s,” she continued. “Twice, Hillary told me she doesn’t know who that is and indicated that she does not care to know.
O’Brien agreed with Willey that Hillary was the “enabler” of Bill Clinton’s sexual crimes, an “accessory after the fact” that would make Hillary criminally culpable in any sex crime her husband were to commit.
“It is what Hillary did and continues to do to help hide her husband’s sexual abuse of women that is what makes her an enabler, how she treated Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey,” O’Brien wrote. “Even if a person does not believe a strong enough direct connection can be made between Hillary and the vile, threatening treatment of those women, you must wonder why Hillary is now making such a strong effort to not know anything about the women’s original claims of sexual assault by Bill Clinton.”
“Why doesn’t Cuomo have more intellectual curiosity or depth of understanding about what is an only slightly complex issue?” she asked.
“I wouldn’t expect the son and brother of New York State governors and himself a national journalist, to be too unsophisticated to understand that it is not a one faceted issue of marital infidelity that makes Hillary an enabler,” she stressed. “The only other explanation is that Cuomo is intentionally trying to manipulate public opinion on this issue by his continuing campaign of feigned ignorance.”
In conclusion, O’Brien wrote, “I’m sick of this minimization and dysfunction.”
A Republican, O’Brien told WND she was a supporter of Sen. Ted Cruz, not Donald Trump.
“I’m not really big Donald Trump supporter,” she explained. “Somebody asked me if I had been inspired by Trump because he was talking about Bill Clinton’s sexual crimes against women. I just laughed and explained I would be doing this if Donald Trump were running for office or not.”
She continued: “I’m pleased Donald Trump is hearing what I’m saying and following my lead. That’s good, but I intend to continue, no matter what.”
‘It’s about rape, stupid’
Roger Stone and Robert Morrow in the 2015 bestselling book “The Clintons’ War on Women” suggest voters should understand “It’s about the rape, stupid,” paraphrasing the famous phrase about the economy that political consultant James Carville coined in Bill Clinton’s 1996 presidential campaign.
Stone and Morrow’s point to stress their conclusion that the serious allegations against Bill Clinton involve sexual violence Clinton has exerted on women against their will, not garden variety marital infidelity, as Hillary’s supporters would like voters to believe.
“Many in the mainstream press are quick to buy the Clintons’ absurdly hypocritical narratives, ” writes Stone in his introduction. “Hilary is an advocate for women as long as you are not one of Bill Clinton’s rape victims or girlfriends.”
Stone continues: “Considering the effectiveness of the Clintons’ spin machine and the basis in much of the mainstream media, it’s not surprising that the public impression is that accusations of rape or sexual assault Bill were disproven.”
But what Stone and Morrow set out to prove is that abundant evidence of Clinton’s sexual crimes against women leave no doubt that the denials by Clinton supporters amount to a “serial trail of deception, disinformation, and crime by the Clintons that goes beyond what we remember from the 1990s.”
Dolly Kyle, a consensual lover with Bill Clinton, came to agree with Stone and Morrow.
In her book “Hillary: The Other Woman,” she shares with readers this diary-like entry:
December 30, 2015:
I watched on television as the nationally beloved comedian Bill Cosby was arrested on sexual assault charges. They say he drugged and raped women and young girls. Billy Clinton raped and sexually assaulted women too. To protect him (actually, to protect her own political career), Billy’s co-conspirator wife Hillary then attacked his victims … and attacked me. Now Hillary is running for president and she pretends to support women; it’s time to talk honestly about that great big lie.
Kyle also referenced Juanita Broaddrick’s famous Twitter message about her 1978 rape by Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton, then the chief law enforcement officer in the state. On Jan. 6, 2016, Broaddrick posted a Tweet that said simply, “It never goes away.”
