“Juanita Broaddrick’s other debate-night claim could be trouble for Breitbart News”

The Fix:

Seated next to Donald Trump at a pre-debate campaign event Sunday night, Juanita Broaddrick repeatedher charge that Bill Clinton raped her in 1978 — an accusation she has contradicted under oath and which the former president denies.

Then, after the debate — which she attended — Broaddrick made another claim that quickly raised eyebrows among reporters and campaign finance experts.

Breitbart, of course, is the pro-Trump conservative news site whose chairman, Steve Bannon, also serves as chief executive of the Trump campaign.

“If the Trump campaign wanted her there, and Breitbart, a corporation, paid for the ticket to assist the Trump campaign, that would be an illegal in-kind corporate contribution,” said Rick Hasen, an expert in campaign finance law at the University of California at Irvine. “But we need to know more facts before we know if that is the case.”
