Less than two hours before he was to debate Hillary Clinton Sunday night, Donald Trump tried to wrest control of the political conversation and shove it toward her husband by live streaming an appearance with three women who have in the past accused former President Bill Clinton of inappropriate sexual behavior.
Trump’s panel included Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and another woman, Kathy Shelton, whose rapist was defended by Hillary Clinton as a young lawyer. That man was convicted of a lesser charge and served 10 months in jail.
All four women are expected to attend the presidential debate in St. Louis, as is Bill Clinton.
Trump’s Facebook Live broadcast came after two days of sharp criticism of the Republican nominee by many in his own party after The Washington Post discovered 11-year-old lewd and sexually aggressive comments captured behind the scenes of a TV interview. Some Republicans have even called on Trump to abandon his run, although Trump has pledged to carry on.
The Clinton campaign huddled in their office Sunday evening before the debate, discussing Trump’s decision to invite the women to the debate. Two aides acknowledged to CNN they didn’t expect this — in all their planning and were jarred by the news.
Hillary Clinton’s communications director Jennifer Palmieri responded moments after news of the live streaming video broke, saying,”We’re not surprised to see Donald Trump continue his destructive race to the bottom.”
“Hillary Clinton understands the opportunity in this town hall is to talk to voters on stage and in the audience about the issues that matter to them, and this stunt doesn’t change that. If Donald Trump doesn’t see that, that’s his loss. As always, she’s prepared to handle whatever Donald Trump throws her way.”
Jones is a former Arkansas state employee who sued Clinton in 1994 for sexual harassment. When subpoenaed in relation to the Jones case, Broaddrick filed an affidavit denying she was assaulted. She later changed her story and in 1999 accused Bill Clinton of rape in the late 1970s.
Independent Counsel Ken Starr’s team thoroughly investigated her claim and noted in his exhaustive Whitewater Report that Broaddrick had changed her story.
Congressional Republicans at the time did not think she was credible and she was not called to testify in Clinton’s impeachment trial.
“I’m here to support Mr. Trump because he’s going to make America great again … I think they should all look at the fact that he’s a good person and he’s not what other people say he’s being, like Hillary,” Jones said.
“Actions speak louder than words,” Broaddrick said. “Mr. Trump may have said some bad words, but Bill Clinton raped me and Hillary Clinton threatened me. I don’t think there’s any comparison.”
Trump did respond to any questions at the event with the Clinton accusers, although reporters shouted questions to him about the newly released video in which he brags about being able to be sexually aggressive with women because of his stardom.
“Mr. Trump does your star power allow you to touch women without their consent?” a reporter shouted.
Not long after Trump’s appearance with her husband’s accusers, Hillary Clinton tweeted a looped video of snippet from Michelle Obama’s Democratic National Convention speech: “When they go low, we go high.”

Big John Howell Show Notes 3-15-16

It’s election day in Chicago! It’s also the Ides of March, so be careful out there.

Three Chicago police officers were recovering from wounds Tuesday morning after an exchange of gunfire with a suspect who was shot dead. The officers, all veterans with about 10 to 12 years on the police force, were rushed to Stroger Hospital and were expected to survive, authorities said. One of the officers was in serious-to-critical condition late Monday.

If Republicans are going to slow Donald Trump’s march to the nomination, Tuesday’s contests could be their last chance to do so at the ballot box, rather than in a contested convention. Former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele joined John to talk about the state of the race and what he expects to see when the results roll in tonight. (Listen here)

Meanwhile on the other side of the aisle, if Bernie Sanders is going to catch Hillary Clinton’s Democratic delegate lead, he’ll need to pass a big test in Midwestern battleground states. Cook County Commissioner Chuy Garcia has endorsed Senator Sanders and joined John to talk about why he thinks Sanders is the best choice for the White House. (Listen here)

Illinois Congressman Peter Roskam joined John Howell to share his thoughts on Election Day. Also, we learned that as a member of Congress, he may be even more disturbed by how realistic House of Cards is than the rest of us. (Listen here)

Everyone has their eye on the Presidential race, but in Cook County and around the state of Illinois there are a number of other interesting race. Governor Bruce Rauner and Michael Madigan are fighting a proxy war in the race between Ken Dunkin and Juliana Stratton. Plus there is also the race for Cook County State’s Attorney. Chicago Tribune Columnist and Editorial Board Member Kristen McQueary joined John to discuss the state and local races worth keeping an eyes on. (Listen here)

Bill Clinton sparred a protester who challenged the former president over his statements — but only as the Secret Service was throwing him out of the rally. Clinton was speaking Saturday at the University of Toledo in Ohio.

A guy in Florida was walking around with a Trump arm band. Carl Cameron reported on it for Fox as an example of just how crazy the election cycle has gotten. It turns out it was the same person who claimed Marco Rubio was driving his girlfriend away. He’s been trolling every political campaign the whole season. Last month he showed up at a rally for Hillary Clinton, proudly wearing a “Settle For Hillary” t-shirt.
