Conway told Jake Tapper on CNN's "State of the Union" that she sympathizes with victims of sexual assault because she is one herself during a conversation about the controversy surrounding Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.

"I'm a victim of sexual assault", she said.

"I feel very empathetic, frankly, for victims of sexual assault, sexual harassment, and rape", she says in the following clip, before clearing her throat and adding, "I'm a victim of sexual assault".

Tapper posited that Conway's own personal experience might make her more certain that all women need to be heard, saying, "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence".

An emotional Kellyanne Conway came forward Sunday and stated that she is a victim of sexual assault.

Conway continued, "This is not Bill Cosby".

"I would talk to some of the members of Congress out there", she said.

"I want those women who were sexually assaulted and confronting Jeff Flake - God bless them, but go blame the perpetrator", Conway said. "That's who's responsible for our sexual assaults: the people who commit them".

She said the debate over Kavanaugh is not a "meeting of the Me Too movement".

As usual, it's hard to make heads or tails of the point Conway is attempting to make, but her stunning revelation is likely to be the subject of headlines for weeks to come.

"You work for a president who says that all the women who have accused him are lying", he said. "It'd be a huge mistake, Jake".

Trump said on Saturday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had "free rein" to investigate Kavanaugh. They should be heard in proceedings.

Ford "should not be insulted, and she should not be ignored", Conway said on Fox News, after Trump's son Donald Trump Jr appeared to mock Ford on social media before her allegations were publicly revealed by The Washington Post on September 16.

"But we do treat people differently who are either the victims or the perpetrators of this based on their politics now or based on their gender".

Fordham Universiy Prof. Christina Greer noted it was odd to see Conway tack onto her personal story that she believes in personal responsibility and that men aren't responsible for her experience.
