A former NBC News journalist is calling on the network to release raw footage of a 1999 interview with Bill Clinton’s rape accuser, Juanita Broaddrick.
In a chat on the website Sidewire on Thursday, Yahoo! News reporter Michael Isikoff said that the NBC footage of Broaddrick’s “Dateline” interview would show that she told interviewer Lisa Myers that Hillary Clinton attempted to intimidate her weeks after the alleged rape, which Broaddrick says occurred at a Little Rock hotel in 1978.
“Broaddrick told her story to NBC and the WashPost in 99. Both organizations closely vetted her story and chose to run it,” wrote Isikoff.
“Also, NBC has the full tape of the original Lisa Meyers [sic] interview,” he added.
Isikoff is the reporter who is credited with landing the scoop that Bill Clinton was having an affair with Monica Lewinsky. The story was spiked at the last minute by his editors at Newsweek.
