After being largely silenced for decades by the mainstream media, women who have accused former President Bill Clinton of sexual harassment and sexual abuse have joined forces again.

On Wednesday, Media Equalizer Co-Founders Brian Maloney and Melanie Morgan held a news conference on Capitol Hill with Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, and Leslie Millwee.

With the avalanche of sexual misconduct allegations rocking the nation in recent months, these brave women are trying again to tell their story.

This time, they hope the media will listen.

Maloney said Media Equalizer brought Clinton’s victims to Washington, D.C. to directly call out Democrat Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota and Democrat Rep. John Conyers of Michigan, who have been accused by several women of harassment and inappropriate behavior.

“Why bring Bill Clinton’s victims to an event denouncing Sen. Al Franken and Rep. John Conyers and others?” Maloney asked. “Yet who could possibly understand the issue better than those who’ve endured the full force of the media and political establishment that would stop at nothing to protect corrupt friends and punish their accusers?”

Morgan also spoke during the event, where she called out the mainstream media for not sending any reporters to give Clinton’s accusers the coverage they deserve.

“I was hoping to see a NBC camera today,” Morgan said, referring to Matt Lauer being fired today over sexual misconduct allegations. “I thought it would be appropriate if a NBC camera man and reporter came today. Are any of you guys with NBC? ABC? CNN? CBS? PBS?”

No one raised their hand.

When Broaddrick, Willey, and Millwee spoke, it was clear that they were still affected by what they claimed Clinton did to them.

“I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, the Arkansas attorney general, raped me,” Broaddrick said. “And Hillary Clinton tried to silence me. I’m now 74. And it never goes away.”

“I was sexually harassed by President Clinton in 1993,” said Willey, who accused Clinton of groping, fondling, and forcing himself on her when she volunteered at the White House.

“The first assault happened in the summer of 1980,” said Millwee, a former Arkansas news reporter who claimed Clinton sexually abused her on several occasions in an editing news room when he was the governor of Arkansas.

Millwee said Clinton rubbed his genitals against her body, ran his hands across her breasts, and made sexually explicit comments to her while she was working at the television station.

While he has denied the allegations, Clinton reached a settlement with Jones in 1999 to drop her sexual harassment lawsuit against him.

According to The Guardian, Clinton paid Jones $850,000 to settle the lawsuit.

It’s also important to note that Clinton’s alleged affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky led to his impeachment in the House of Representatives in December 1998, on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice.

The brave women also called on Congress to release the entire list of every elected official who has been involved with the slush fund that paid women to settle their complaints and remain silent.

“I’m here to demand the resignation of Al Franken and John Conyers,” Willey said. “They are not sorry. Their apologies are weak. The only reason they apologized is because they were caught.”

“I’m tired of paying Bill Clinton’s pension for what he did to me and all of these other women. I know there are many, many more like me,” Millwee said.

These women deserve justice.
