Juanita Broaddrick is a woman who accused former President Bill Clinton of rape. But at one point she signed an affidavit saying that Clinton did not rape her, and then she later said that she perjured herself in signing the affidavit. Here is how this Buzzfeed article describes it:
When [Paula] Jones’ lawyers subpoenaed her, Broaddrick signed an affidavit denying that Clinton had ever raped her. It was her decision to do so. “I did not want to get involved, and I signed it hoping to stay out of it,” she told me. The next year, Clinton was on trial for impeachment for allegedly obstructing justice during the Jones case. Federal prosecutor Ken Starr’s investigation team reached out to Broaddrick to ask whether Clinton had forced her to file a false affidavit. Broaddrick was afraid of lying to a federal grand jury, she says. After Starr gave her immunity from prosecution for perjury, she decided it was time to tell the full truth.
Broaddrick still desperately wanted to stay anonymous, but Jones’ lawyers used her name in a 1998 court filing. As Clinton’s impeachment trial loomed closer, reporters started staking out her house and tabloids printed vicious rumors about her family. Broaddrick agreed to sit down for a television interview with NBC News' Lisa Myers on Dateline. She also hoped to help impeach Clinton.
But the meticulously fact-checked Dateline report didn’t run until two weeks after the impeachment trial, in which Clinton was acquitted. Starr found Broaddrick’s rape claims inconclusive — the statute of limitations on them had passed decades before — and didn’t include them in the report, although he allowed Republicans to hear them.
This is somewhat confusingly written, so my question is, did Juanita Broaddrick ever testify against President Clinton before a grand jury as part of special prosecutor Ken Starr's investigation of President Clinton? Or did Ken Starr granting her immunity from prosecution for perjury just enable her to tell her story to the press, and did she never actually testify before Ken Starr's grand jury?
If she did testify before Ken Starr's grand jury, was this before or after Clinton's impeachment trial? (It's important to note, by the way, that Ken Starr concluded that Broaddrick's story was not credible.)
