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

Clinton agreed that there should be due process for everyone involved, but changed the focus from her husband, the accused, to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the current accuser in this case. Clinton made Ford’s due process rights paramount.

“Yes, there should be due process for everyone involved. And I think that’s what Dr. Ford is asking for. She is asking for due process. She’s asking that there be an investigation. You know, at the end of the investigation, she might very well decide not to pursue her willingness to testify. She might say, well, you know, there’s no way to ever prove it. Who knows what she might decide,” she said.
