EXCLUSIVE: Juanita Broaddrick's Book about Alleged Clinton Rape Disappears from Amazon
Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who claims that Bill Clinton raped her in 1978, has written a book about the event. Published on Amazon, Kindle and print versions of the book have sold briskly. Now, however, Amazon has halted sales of the Kindle version of the book after five months of problem-free sales, and Broaddrick is sounding the alarm.
The book, You'd Better Put Some Ice On That: How I Survived Being Raped by Bill Clinton, gives Broaddrick's side of the story. The Amazon preview says, in part:
Now, with award-winning former investigative journalist Nick Lulli, she tells her story of survival; from the assault at the hands of the future president, to the veiled threats by a seemingly complicit presidential wannabe Hillary Rodham Clinton; Broaddrick believes now is the time to set the record straight and ensure victims everywhere are believed.
In a Facebook post on June 12, Broaddrick wrote:
Outrageous!! Was just sent this by Amazon. My book has been #1 on Kindle and selling just fine for 5 months. Formatting tool was supplied by Amazon. Publisher, Create Space, is owned by Amazon. IS AMAZON TRYING TO SILENCE MY BOOK?
As of this writing, the Amazon link confirms that the e-book is not currently available for download. One can still, however, purchase the print version of the book.
In an exclusive interview with PJ Media, Broaddrick says she can't be sure if this is a random error or deliberate, but she questions the timing of the de-listing of her book. She says sarcastically, "Just coincidental with new statements from [Bill Clinton]." She added that this isn't the first time Amazon has given her problems. "The first week my book came out when they were pushing Fire and Fury, they dropped my book with no explanation. We had to rush to get a second one up after buyers told us it was not available."
"We have never been given an explanation. How does it sell 1000 Kindle [books] with no complaints and all of a sudden it’s all wrong?" she asked.
Broaddrick says she and her coauthor have reached out to Amazon for an explanation, but have not heard back yet.
Those new statements from Bill Clinton were reported by the New York Post on June 11, taking the Internet by storm, for obvious reasons: "Norms have changed for what you can do to somebody against their will," Clinton said in an interview.
It's quite a coincidence, as Broaddrick points out, that several times recently her book has mysteriously been lost by Amazon when something more aligned with the liberal agenda takes precedence in the news cycle.
