After being accused of raping a 14-year-old girl, former President Bill Clinton is accused of having a sexual relationship with a married woman who later died.
The accusations against Clinton were made in a lawsuit brought by a man who claimed the former president raped him in 1991.
(Reuters) Clinton’s former spokesman, Brian Fallon, released a statement Sunday accusing the president of “treason” for “harassing, intimidating, lying, and lying to his family and friends in order to get to the truth.”
The New York Times reports the accusations against the former commander-in-chief stem from a lawsuit filed in 1998 against the then-president by a woman named Barbara Broccoli.
Broccoli claimed Clinton groped her in a hotel room and that he forcibly kissed her.
Clinton has denied any wrongdoing and has called Broccoli a liar.
He has also called her allegations “false, malicious and hurtful.”
The Times says the lawsuit was brought after Clinton was accused of sexually assaulting a former White House intern in 1995, in an incident that also took place in a White House hallway.
Fallon said in the statement that Clinton’s “reckless actions and conduct led to the death of a woman, a father and a great-grandparent.”
