‘I ended up walking with one of the senators, and soon we stopped in front of his building and he invited me over for coffee. After going inside, he asked me to sit comfortably on the sofa.

She said the senator took off his blazer, rolled up his sleeve, and made coffee before sitting next to him on the sofa.

‘Then, in an instant, it all changed. He dropped to my right side, placed his left hand on my shoulder, and kissed me, pushed his tongue into my mouth, pressed me back to the couch.

‘I was completely shocked, I pushed him away. All I wanted was to erase the last 10 seconds.

She said the senator seemed shocked, but she apologized and said she called their relationship “misplaced”.

Abedin said she then plotted how to leave ‘without it ending badly’, as the senator asked her if she wanted to stay.

‘Then I said something that only my twenties would have come up with – ‘I’m so sorry’ – and walked out, trying to appear as uninteresting as possible.’

Abedin, now 44, said she kept her distance from the senator “for a few days” but eventually clashed with him on Capitol Hill. He asked her at the time if they were still friends. She wrote that Clinton had then come to join them.

Clinton’s aide said the memory of the Couch incident was suppressed until she accused Ford of “easily” recalling her alleged assault. After Ford claimed that Kavanaugh assaulted her at a gathering at the high school, Kavanaugh claimed such an incident never happened and was still corroborated to the bench.

Abedin’s estranged husband has had his own frequent sex scandals, including one involving sexting with a 15-year-old girl, messages that were exclusively revealed by in 2016, leading to his arrest.

Weiner, 56, served 18 months in federal prison for the crime, and he and Abedin separated after the crime that same year.

Weiner and Abedin married in 2010 in a star-studded ceremony, during which Hillary Clinton called the bride the closest thing to another daughter.

But the couple’s high-powered political union ran into trouble the following year.

Weiner resigned his seat in New York’s 9th congressional district in 2011 after he accidentally tweeted a crotch-shot of himself in his underwear publicly on his official page.

But the continuing scandals were eclipsed four years later in 2017, when Weiner admitted to sexting a 15-year-old girl after an investigation by

For months, Weiner and the minor sexually exchanged graphic text messages, talked on multiple social media platforms and sent photos of her occasionally posing with her son in various states.

After Weiner was busted by, he admitted to learning that the victim, from North Carolina, was underage at the time of their exchange.

Weiner was arrested by FBI agents in May of that year. She admitted one count of broadcasting pornographic material later that month, crying in court as she filed her guilty plea.

After the judge told him that he would have to register as a sex offender, he said, ‘I have a disease, but I have no excuse.’

That September he was sentenced to 21 months in prison, but was released three months earlier due to good behavior.
