Longtime Hillary Clinton Companion Huma Abedin Alleges That an Unnamed, Presumably Democrat Senator Sexually Assaulted Her

If he were a Republican, she would not be hiding his name, obviously.

Huma Abedin, a longtime close aide to Hillary Clinton, has written in a new book that she was sexually assaulted by a US senator, an incident she "buried" until allegations against the supreme court justice Brett Kavanaugh triggered her memory years later.

A lot of women seem to have had "memories" restored by hearing about a sexual assault that Bret Kavanaugh physically, temporally could not have committed.

...

Abedin details her alleged assault while describing her work for Clinton when the former first lady and future secretary of state and presidential candidate was a US senator from New York, between 2001 and 2009.

The passage comes shortly after a description of how Abedin and the Clintons came to attend Donald Trump's wedding to his third wife, Melania Knauss, in Palm Beach, Florida, in January 2005.

Of that occasion, Abedin, who was born in Michigan but grew up in Saudi Arabia, writes: "I felt I was at an Arab wedding back home."

This story has nothing to do with Trump, but she had to get that dig in.

In fact, the alleged assault didn't even take place there. It took place in Washington DC.

But they need to suggest a Trump connection.



Then, after describing a Washington dinner attended by "a few senators and their aides" but not Clinton, Abedin writes: "I ended up walking out with one of the senators, and soon we stopped in front of his building and he invited me in for coffee. Once inside, he told me to make myself comfortable on the couch."

She says the senator took off his blazer, rolled up his sleeves and made coffee while they continued to talk.

"Then, in an instant, it all changed. He plopped down to my right, put his left arm around my shoulder, and kissed me, pushing his tongue into my mouth, pressing me back on the sofa.

"I was so utterly shocked, I pushed him away. All I wanted was for the last 10 seconds to be erased."

...

Abedin writes that she stayed friendly with the senator and soon "buried the incident", which she wanted to forget, succeeding in erasing it from her mind "entirely".

So you're saying that someone you weren't attracted to kissed you?

The unidentified but surely Democratic Senator then apologized for having "misread you all this time."

Without doubt, an unwelcome kiss is, well, unwelcome, but we seem to have really lowered the bar for what counts as "sexual assault" now.

Technically this might be a sexual assault -- but most jurisdictions would say it's merely a battery (and unwelcome touching). And of course this sort of thing happens a thousand times a day without a police report being filed.

But Huma has a book to sell, so.

Obviously this would be No Big Deal if the assailant had been a Boy in a Skirt.
