24 Mar 2021: Harris to host 'women empowerment' talk with rape-accused Bill Clinton
United States Vice President Kamala Harris is set to address an event on Friday alongside former President Bill Clinton.
At the event—to be hosted by the Clinton Foundation at Harris's alma mater Howard University—the two will talk about empowering women.
Notably, Clinton has faced multiple allegations of sexual crimes against women in the past and was also associated with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Event: Harris, Clinton to discuss impact of COVID-19 on women
Reportedly, Harris and Clinton will talk about the impact of COVID-19 on women and empowering women and girls in the US and around the world.
The four-day event for the 13th annual Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) University meeting will also be addressed by Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (Bill Clinton's wife), Democratic activist Stacey Abrams, and American author Wes Moore on Friday.
Allegations: Clinton has been accused of sexual assault, rape
Clinton's involvement at the event is controversial since the former President has faced multiple allegations of sexual assault and rape over decades.
He reportedly took flights on Epstein's jet, where the latter would allegedly offer young girls to passengers for sex.
Photographs of Clinton and an alleged Epstein victim, Chauntae Davies, had also emerged, including one where he is seen receiving a shoulder rub.
Harris: Harris was hailed as first woman VP
Harris was celebrated as the first Black, South Asian, woman Vice President when she took the oath of office in January earlier this year.
Earlier, Harris had notably taken on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over allegations of sexual assault.
The VP—who had once swiftly condemned former Democratic Senator Al Franken on similar allegations—now remains silent on allegations against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
