Kellyanne Conway: 'I'm a victim of sexual assault'
White House adviser Kellyanne Conway has revealed that she was sexually assaulted as a younger woman.
"I'm a victim of sexual assault," she told CNN without giving details. Ms Conway, 51, has hinted previously that she was molested by Congressmen.
The comment came as she was defending President Trump's embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who is facing allegations of sexual assault.
"I feel very empathetic... towards victims of sexual assault," she said.
The Senate vote on Mr Kavanaugh's nomination was delayed dramatically this week when the president ordered further FBI background checks on his character.
In an earlier confirmation hearing watched by millions in the US and around the world, Dr Christine Blasey Ford accused the judge of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers in the 1980s.
