Nurse who treated Bill Clinton rape victim talks, and it's worse than we thought
“I just know when I left that morning it was my understanding that she was going to be meeting with Mr. Clinton downstairs in the coffee shop for a meeting that they had planned ahead of time to discuss nursing-home issues,” Rogers recalled in the interview.
Upon entering the room. shortly after the incident, Rogers was shocked by what she found.
“I went back to the room, and I can’t remember if it was because she didn’t come down to the meeting, because I expected her to have a short meeting and then come to the meeting,” Rogers said. “And so I went back up to the room, and when I went back into the room and she was just very, very upset. She was crying. … And she just told me. She started then telling me the story of how he had just basically overtaken her and bit her lip in order to keep her quiet and to keep her from trying to leave or get away from him. And then she proceeded to tell me that he had pushed her onto the bed and had raped her.”
Asked whether Broaddrick’s lip was bleeding, Rogers replied, “There were obviously open spots where he had bitten her. It was open but not openly bleeding. You know it was just open spots on her lip.”
Asked what she could recall from the drive back from the hotel, Rogers stated, “I just remember that she cried most of the way home. And she kept just questioning herself. ‘Why in the world would, you know? Why would I have ever trusted him?’ But you know she just did not ever think that he would do anything like that. She never suspected that he was interested in her other than her qualifications and her knowledge of long-term care. So it was totally surprising to both of us that this happened.”
