Kellyanne Conway On CNN: “I’m A Victim Of Sexual Assault”

That is a huge mistake." … She said: "Jake, they should all be heard. But we do treat people differently who are either the victims or the perputrators of this based on their politics now and based on their gender.
Tapper went on to ask her, regarding other women who have accused prominent men of sexual assault, whether it makes her think they need to be heard "even if there are not corroborating winesses, that is not — absence of evidence is not evidence of absence."
I don't expect Judge Kavanaugh or Jake Tapper or Jeff Flake or anybody to be held responsible for that. You have to responsible for your own conduct." The counselor to President Donald Trump revealed to Jake Tapper on his Beltway show that she is a survivor of sexual assault. That" — Conway paused, cleared her throat and continued — "I'm a victim of sexual assault. "I feel very empathetic, frankly, for victims of sexual assault, sexual harassment and rape.
That's who's responsible for sexual assault, the people who commit them." But go blame the perpetrator. After chiding Tapper and CNN for equating Kavanaugh with Bill Cosby "or even Bill Clinton," Conway continued: "I want those women who were sexually assaulted who were confronting Jeff Flake — God bless them.
Let's not do it — let's not always bring Trump inot everything that happens in this universe; that's mistake No. It'd be a huge mistake, Jake. Uh, they've been a number of people –" At that point, Conway jumped in again: "And don't conflate with this. And certainly don't conflate it with that happened to me. At that point., Tapper jumped in and said: "This is the first time I've ever heard you talk about something personal like that, and I'm really sorry." Conway cut in and said, "I've just had it — I've just had it with it all being the same." He continued: "You work for a president who says that all the women who've accused him are lying. 1."

Alyssa Milano Comes Forward With #WhyIDidntReport Story: “It Meant Recognizing My Attacker’s Existence”

Milano has been an outspoken voice during the #MeToo and Time's Up movement as well as a supporter of Ford. The Insatiable star comes after the SCOTUS nominee in the article.
"This statement chilled me to my core," she said. In an essay written for Vox, Milano said that she wasn't much older than Ford when she was sexually assaulted. When she read Trump's tweet on Friday about how "if Ford’s words were true" she should have filed a report years ago.
She continues: "For me, speaking up meant reliving one of the worst moments of my life. Telling our stories means being vulnerable to public attacks and ridicule when our only 'crime' was to be assaulted in the first place." It meant recognizing my attacker’s existence when I wanted nothing more than to forget that he was allowed to walk on this Earth at all. This is what every survivor goes through.″ />
"Now, we are seeing our worst nightmares realized when we see the disbelief, pushback, hate, and death threats Ford is receiving just because she had the courage to speak up," she said.
After Trump's initial tweet, Milano did not hold back and tweeted at the former Celebrity Apprentice host: "I was sexually assaulted twice. Once when I was a teenager. I never filed a police report and it took me 30 years to tell [my] parents." She then encouraged everyone to share their stories.
"And the highest court in our land is no place for an alleged sexual offender to sit." "Every person who refuses to loudly and openly reject Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination is telling every generation of Americans that an alleged abuser’s career is more valuable than a survivor’s humanity," she wrote.
Milano writes that victims of sexual assault don't file a report because "they know all too well that our stories are rarely taken seriously or believed." She adds that when it comes to sexual misconduct, "our justice system is broken."
Activist and actress Alyssa Milano is the latest celebrity voice to come forward to tell her #WhyIDidntReport story in the response to Donald Trump’s questioning on why Christine Blasey Ford did not file a police report regarding her sexual assault claims against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
"It took me three decades to tell my parents that the assault had even happened. I never told officials. "It took me years after my assault to voice the experience to my closest friends," Milano recalls. I never tried to find justice for my pain because justice was never an option." I never filed a police report.
