Nikki Haley: Accusers Shouldn't Be Blamed or Second-Guessed (VIDEO)

United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley appeared on Jake Tapper's "State of the Union" to talk about the most recent sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Interestingly enough, Haley broke from the rest of the GOP pack and said those who claim to be sexually assaulted or harassed shouldn't be blamed or second-guessed.

"Accusers go through a lot of trauma. Some handle it one way and some handle it another way. Regardless, It’s not something we want to do to blame the accuser or try and second-guess the accuser. We don’t know the situation she was going through 35 years ago. We don’t know the circumstances," Haley told Tapper, The Hill reported.

"The message I'm comfortable with is that accusers go through a lot of trauma and some handle it one way and some handle it the other way," Haley told Tapper. "Regardless, you never -- it's not something that we want to do, to blame the accuser or to try and second guess the accuser. We don't know the situation she was going through 35 years ago. We don't know the circumstances."

While she believes every accuser has the right to be heard, so does the person being accused.

Haley's comments come a few days after President Donald Trump took to Twitter to question the validity of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's allegations against Kavanaugh. According to Trump, Kavanaugh is "under assault by radical left wing politicians."
