Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was asked Thursday in New Hampshire whether the alleged sexual abuse or harassment victims of her husband should be believed, given her recent tweet on the matter.
“You recently came out to say that all rape victims should be believed? But would you say that about Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, and Paula Jones? Should we believe them as well?” the audience member asked.
“Well, I would say that everybody should be believed at first until they are disbelieved based on evidence,” Clinton said, drawing applause.
Clinton tweeted the following last month:
Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported. https://t.co/mkD69RHeBL

Broaddrick and Wiley both have accused former President Bill Clinton of sexual assault, and Jones sued Clinton for sexual harassment, who eventually paid her a settlement of $850,000.
