Top 11 times Bill Clinton was accused of sexual assault or rape

1. Three college students

In 1969, Bill Clinton was a 23-year-old Rhodes scholar at Oxford University when he was accused of sexual assault by a fellow student, an English woman named Eileen Wellstone, 19, after the two met at a local pub. Bill acknowledged that he had sex with this woman, but insists it was a consensual encounter.

An unidentified State Department employ (sic) filed a report of the incident at the time with his superiors. Now retired he said, “There was no doubt in my mind that this young woman had suffered severe emotional trauma…But we were under tremendous pressure to avoid the embarrassment of having a Rhodes scholar charged with rape.

Charges were never brought against Clinton. He left Oxford one year later without earning his degree.

In 1972, a 22-year-old Yale student contacted campus police and accused Bill of sexual assault. He was dating Hillary Rodham at the time. Retired campus police have since confirmed the report. Again, no charges were filed…. h/t
