Juanita Broaddrick, who accused former President Bill Clinton of raping her back in the 1970s, has an interesting theory about why Democrats are trying to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh right now.
Broaddrick responded to a tweet by Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera asking whether it is appropriate to hold people accountable for things they may have done decades ago.
“How much time must pass before distant–hazily or inaccurately recalled events–should still have the power to disqualify or destroy?” Rivera asked.
Broaddrick thinks Democrats are trying to impeach Kavanaugh now because they fear that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is about to retire.
“This has nothing to do with faux allegations against Kavanaugh. The man is innocent and they know it,” Broaddrick replied. “As I said a few days ago………THIS is about Ginsburg.”

It certainly makes sense that Democrats fear Ginsburg may soon retire.
Following another round of salacious and unproven allegations against Kavanaugh, Democrats are demanding the Justice be impeached from the nation’s highest court.
So they are trying to remove Kavanaugh now so that at worst, the high court won’t tip even more in favor of conservatives.
Broaddrick’s theory comes as Ginsburg has faced a slew of questions about her ailing health and whether she is still capable of serving on the nation’s highest court much longer.
Ginsburg recently completed three weeks of radiation therapy at a New York City hospital to treat a malignant tumor on her pancreas.
An abnormality was detected in early July during a routine blood test, and a subsequent biopsy revealed the tumor.
The 86-year-old liberal lion began radiation treatments on Aug. 5 and received treatment as an outpatient, the statement said.
As part of her treatment, a bile duct stent was placed on her pancreas.
Despite several health challenges and major surgeries over the years to remove cancerous nodes, Ginsburg said she doesn’t think she should step down from the Supreme Court.
Obviously keeping the most liberal Justice on the court is more important to Democrats than her health and well being.
But beyond that, there are serious issues still surrounding her health and how much longer she can continue to serve on the Supreme Court.
In late December, the 85-year-old Justice had surgery to remove two cancerous growths from her left lung, forcing her to miss almost a month of oral arguments on the Supreme Court.
In 2009, she had surgery for pancreatic cancer and missed time from the Supreme Court during her recovery.
Back in 1999, Ginsburg had colorectal cancer that required nine months of chemotherapy.
While President Donald Trump and many have wished nothing but the best for Ginsburg, many argue that her health issues have gotten worse and are concerning.
And the fact that she still continues to suffer from so many health issues has many wondering how much longer RBG plans to sit on the nation’s highest court.
