St. Louis, MISSOURI– Hillary Clinton’s press secretary Brian Fallon refused five times to say whether the victims of sexual assault have a right to be believed.

In the spin room following the second presidential debate at Washington University in St. Louis, Univision’s Eduardo Suárez asked Fallon five times whether victims “deserve to be believed.”

The transcript of their exchange is below:

Univision’s Eduardo Suárez: Do you think that victims of sexual abuse deserve to be believed, as Hillary Clinton said once?

Fallon: I’m sorry?

Suárez: Do you think that victims of sexual abuse deserve to be believed, as Hillary Clinton said once?

Fallon: Look, uh, I think, uh, what happened tonight, uh, before the debate was a stunt.

Suárez: Do you think they deserve to be believed or not?

Fallon: I think that in many ways, Donald Trump lost the debate even before it started based on his own sideshow backfiring on him–

Suárez: Do you think they deserve to be believed or not?

Fallon: –as many critics have said that it would.

Suárez: Do you think they deserve to be believed or not?

Fallon: I refer you back to her previous comments.

Earlier this year, Clinton tweeted:

In response, Juanita Broaddrick tweeted:

Broaddrick says she was raped by Bill Clinton— then the attorney general of Arkansas– in a hotel room in 1978, but that Hillary Clinton silenced her.

In 1975, then 12-year-old Kathy Shelton says she was raped on the side of a road in Arkansas by a 41-year-old assailant. Shelton was denied justice in her eyes because Hillary Clinton, who defended Shelton’s assailant, was able to force the exclusion of damning evidence. Shelton was made infertile by the rape.

Audio tape from the 1980s reveals Clinton laughing about Shelton’s rape trial.

“It was a fascinating case, it was a really interesting case,” Clinton can be heard saying on the audio recording. “He took a lie detector test, which he passed, which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs,” she said while laughing.

Both Shelton and Broaddrick along with Kathleen Wiley and Paula Jones, who both allege Bill Clinton sexually assaulted them, had front row seats during Sunday night’s debate as guests of Donald Trump.
