Kellyanne Conway: I'm a Victim of Sexual Assault (VIDEO)

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper on Sunday morning to discuss the sexual assault allegations being made against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.  

Conway had a vulnerable moment when she admitted that she has been the victim of sexual assault. 

“I feel very empathetic, frankly, for victims of sexual assault, sexual harassment and rape,” she said, getting emotional. “I’m a victim of sexual assault.” 

Conway then went on to explain that perpetrators should be held responsible, not every man.

"I don't expect Judge Kavanaugh or Jake Tapper or Jeff Flake or anybody to be held responsible for that," she said. "You have to be responsible for your own conduct." 

She also reminded Tapper of one thing: President Bill Clinton didn't go through the kind of scrutiny that Kavanaugh has. 

"You had Senate Judiciary Committee members who refused to remove Bill Clinton from office after he received oral sex in the oval office and lied about it to a grand jury as President of the United States. The hypocrisy is ridiculous," she said. 

"I want those women who were sexually assaulted, who confronted Jeff Flake the other day – God bless them! But go blame the perpetrator," Conway said. "That's who's responsible for our sexual assaults: the people who commit them." 

Tapper noted that this was the first time he had heard anything about Conway's personal life.
