Kellyanne Conway Reveals She’s a Sexual Assault Survivor in Emotional Moment on CNN (Mediaite)

As a firestorm of controversy consumes the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh following sexual assault allegations leveled against the SCOTUS nominee, one of his biggest defenders revealed she is a survivor herself.

During a Sunday interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway said she’s a victim of sexual assault, a personal admission which appeared unexpected by Tapper, who said it was the first time he had heard it.

“I feel very empathetic, frankly, for victims of sexual assault, sexual harassment and rape,” she said, appearing to get emotional. “I’m a victim of sexual assault. I don’t expect Judge Kavanaugh or Jake Tapper or Jeff Flake or anybody to be held responsible for that.”
