“A different man has been portrayed in the media over the last two months,” she said in a statement at the time. “It is the portrait of a man I do not know. It is also a portrait painted by individuals and organizations whom many in the media have given a pass. There appears to be no vetting of my husband’s accusers before stories are published or aired. An accusation is published, and immediately goes viral.”

“None of us will ever want to be in the position of attacking a victim," she concluded. "But the question should be asked – who is the victim?”
