Rachel Maddow Struggles to Ask Hillary Clinton About Bill Clinton’s Accusers

"Your husband, when he was president, faced allegations that were not the same as this, certainly, but had connections to these kinds of old allegations from years ago."

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow struggled to ask Hillary Clinton a question about the sexual assault allegations against her husband, former President Bill Clinton, after spending several minutes discussing the allegation against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Tuesday.

After a nearly seven-minute discussion about the sexual assault allegation against Judge Kavanaugh, Maddow finally worked up the courage to ask Clinton about the allegations against her husband.

“Your husband, when he was president, faced allegations that were not the same as this, certainly, but had connections to these kinds of old allegations from years ago,” Maddow said.

Bill Clinton has been accused of everything from lewd and inappropriate actions to rape.

“I know you had concerns at the time that – your husband certainly had concerns at the time – that he never really had due process to defend himself against allegations like this,” Maddow said. “Have we learned anything over the years about due process, not just for the accusers but also for the accused?”

“Well, I think that you have to take each of these situations sort of on their own merits,” Clinton said. “What we have today is a process that has been rushed, that has been deliberately opaque, where information that the Congress, not just Democratic senators, but all senators and the public deserve to see that they were denied.”
