It is very likely she is guilty. Otherwise, she would not have used a private server and then delete all her emails when caught. But she got away with it. The Clinton are escape artists.

I would say Trump has failed conservatives and must be replaced.

As much as I dislike McConnell, Moore is so ineffably dreadful that Alabamians might actually send a Democrat to the U.S. Senate instead, something that would have been patently unthinkable otherwise.

Moore is horrible if the accusations are true. There is no proof of something that allegedly happened 40 years ago. Abusers of women don't stop abusing. Did Clinton stop after he went to the White House? The whole thing is politically motivated to ruin the Republican majority.

The left suddenly realizes that Bill Clinton Abused women And Once again do exactly what they have accused Republicans of doing.

I Believe Juanita

By Michelle Goldberg
Nov. 13, 2017

On Friday evening the MSNBC host Chris Hayes sent out a tweet that electrified online conservatives: “As gross and cynical and hypocritical as the right’s ‘what about Bill Clinton’ stuff is, it’s also true that Democrats and the center left are overdue for a real reckoning with the allegations against him.” Hayes’s tweet inspired stories on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze, Breitbart and The Daily Caller, all apparently eager to use the Clinton scandals to derail discussions about Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for the United States Senate in Alabama who is accused of sexually assaulting minors.

Yet despite the right’s evident bad faith, I agree with Hayes. In this #MeToo moment, when we’re reassessing decades of male misbehavior and turning open secrets into exposes, we should look clearly at the credible evidence that Juanita Broaddrick told the truth when she accused Clinton of raping her. But revisiting the Clinton scandals in light of today’s politics is complicated as well as painful. Democrats are guilty of apologizing for Clinton when they shouldn’t have. At the same time, looking back at the smear campaign against the Clintons shows we can’t treat the feminist injunction to “believe women” as absolute.

Writing at Crooked.com, Brian Beutler warns that in future elections, right-wing propaganda will exploit the progressive commitment to always taking sexual abuse charges seriously. It’s easy to imagine an outlet like Breitbart leveraging the “believe women” rallying cry to force mainstream media coverage of dubious accusations.

The Clinton years, in which epistemological warfare emerged as a key part of the Republican political arsenal, show us why we should be wary of allegations that bubble up from the right-wing press. At the time, the reactionary billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife was bankrolling the Arkansas Project, which David Brock, the former right-wing journalist who played a major role in it, described as a “multimillion-dollar dirty tricks operation against the Clintons.” Various figures in conservative media accused Bill Clinton of murder, drug-running and using state troopers as pimps. Brock alleges that right-wing figures funneled money to some of Clinton’s accusers.
Do note that It took the left 30 years to recognize that Bill Clinton sexually abused women. And that David Brock now runs one of the Democrats propaganda outlets Media Matters.

The bottom line is that almost everyone believes or dismisses these sorts of accusations based on what is politically expedient. It's not about truth, it's about cheering for your team and booing the other team.
