EXCERPT:

COSBY: "Do you regret, though, not, maybe not saying something that was supportive of the women. Because you've always said, women should be believed. And yet, George Stephanopoulos and others have said that you were part of sort of the attacking the victims, the people making allegations against your husband. Do you regret that?"
CLINTON: "Look, I think every situation has to be judged on its own merits. Look, there were allegations that were disproved. There were allegations that were absolutely contradicted under sworn testimony. So, of course, you should give people who make such allegations the benefit of the doubt, that's what our system does -- but then you have to investigate them. And that fully happened in the late 90s. And what we've got here is something very different. There's been no commitment to investigate the more than a dozen women who've made charges against, uh, President Trump, and there's been no effort to really go into and understand what he was talking about in his Access Hollywood tape. So, they are not parallel. And I think it's unfortunate that, uh, people are either misremembering or misinterpreting history. Because the country remembers it. The country went through it. And it was a painful period. The Republicans spent tens of millions of dollars looking into every part of our lives. And we all know what they found. And that was based on those allegations that were provable and the many that were not. And this is a distraction that we shouldn't fall for. Because if we're going to hold people to the same standard, there's a lot of, you know, parallels that are not being followed in recent times."
