ABC News Reports: Text of letters claiming that Juanita Broaddrick was raped by Clinton .
October 23, 1992
Dear (name deleted):
I wanted to write this letter and give you my personal assurances on the situation that has recently occurred; and, that I am giving you these assurances as a friend and to follow up on a personal promise that I made to David on the telephone—that I would never do anything to hurt you. This is a promise that I can live with the rest of my life, and be at peace with my Lord that I have acted in a responsible, Christian manner without having to lie.
When I saw Clinton win the democratic nomination for the presidency, the memory of our conversations returned. Therefore, I prepared a document detailing the facts of the rape as you had told them to me, with names omitted, and faxed it down to Sheffield Nelson. I was concerned about the situation and wanted to have someone with integrity go visit you concerning your situation with Clinton. To be perfectly honest, when Sheffield received this fax he didn't know if he was being set up by the Democrats—or just what. We talked on the telephone and he agreed to come and be with me while visiting with you. The meeting was one of mutual respect. I had taken a tape recorder just to protect myself and to see if the items I had prepared for review coincided with the conversation. The tape was never to be used against you; however, it did confirm the conversation and events almost exactly to the document I had faced him. Sheffield, when we left Brownwood, was shocked and moved at what had happened to you.
We both simply asked you if you were interested in coming forward, if for nothing else, just to release you from the guilt you said you had been carrying for fourteen years. And you mentioned that, if you did not come forward, that it would truly convince David of your innocence in the matter and also it would help to set his mind at rest. Sheffield also mentioned that he had a friend on the West coast, a trusted reporter, that you could tell your story to and thereby prevent a circus media event. He also mentioned that he would bring his wife to San Francisco and meet with you and the reporter if you so wished. Sheffield insisted that if you were to indeed come forward that it should be done in a dignified manner, and he gave you his assurances.
On Friday, I received a call from the Los Angeles Times asking if indeed the story was true, and I confirmed that it was. The reporter wanted my tape, but I would not release it to him or ever let him hear a part of it. As far as I was concerned, it was confidential—and it still is. He asked me if you knew where you were staying in San Francisco, and I told him no. Somehow he bird-dogged it out and found you. If you recall, you never told us if your trip was for business or pleasure. Shortly thereafter, I received a call from the Associated Press, and again I confirmed the conversation but would not release the tape or let any part of the conversation be heard. If any statement was to be made, it had to come from you; not me.
Later that evening I had a telephone call from David and he asked me if Sheffield had made a recording of your conversation and I said no. As far as I was concerned, my tape did not exist because it was simply to confirm one way or the other if the event had actually happened, so this was a moot issue. David then told me that if anyone called, to lie and tell them it did not happen. I told David that I would not lie but would refer calls to him or you. And to this day, I have honored my statement. David, in no uncertain terms, threatened that I would be held personally responsible for the release of this information. He also told me that he had a call in to the Democratic party with a message for Clinton "to call David (last name deleted) as soon as possible." I asked him if Clinton would know who the call was from and he assured me that "Clinton would know!" David said he wanted to assure me that your situation with him would not go unattended and that he was "going to ask Clinton for a couple of big favors" and that he "would get them"—and that "Clinton owed it" to you all. I taped that conversation, also. My only comment here is evidently some big favors had to occur to see such a change in your attitude, and to lie on such a tragic matter. Whatever the price for silence, I hope it is worth it and that you can both be able to look in the mirror and face yourself, and the God that David talked about in our telephone conversation. My prayers are that God will bless you in your businesses; I sincerely do.
I believe that you will continue to be irreparably psychologically damaged by your decision to continue to hold this brutal rape inside; I believe your marriage will be irreparably harmed by never allowing you the opportunity to confront your attacker; I believe your son would demand you to come forward to confront Clinton if they (sic) had knowledge; and I believe that our country has a right to know what kind of fraud is being perpetrated upon it. However, I will not substitute my beliefs of what is best for you, your marriage, or our country on you as I think that is improper. I will say that I hope whatever promises or favors Clinton performs for you or David evens the score for his brutal attack, 14 years suffering you have endured, and the never ending future burden you will be carrying. Your wishes became painfully obvious to me when David started lying as he was coached to do; you, for the first time, tried to deny the rape as you were so being coached to do; and how the "pay off" was confirmed. I hope the "pay off" was your decision, (name deleted). I doubt you are the first victim that Clinton has been able to silence nor will you be the last.
As I have stated above, I am not going to release the tapes and other back-up materials, and you can live your life without the fear of me ever doing so. However, for my own protection I have made copies of the tapes and everything else and given them to both my attorney and Sheffield. These tapes and materials will be held forever, for posterity, and they will never be released unless I am forced by you to release them in court or to the press or also, in light of David's threats, in the event harm should ever come to me or my family. I gave Sheffield his copies of everything without any restrictions, so that he could use them any way he might choose.

Here is a report from MSNBC: Woman claims Clinton assaulted her.
The New York Post, an extremely anti-Clinton publication, did not follow up this story on February 21, 1999. This means that they cannot confirm it either.
No photo of Juanita Broaddrick has yet been published anywhere.
The major media, CNN, MSNBC and AP, are only publishing the White House denial.
It seems likely that this "story" will turn out not to be a story.
