Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin reveals she was sexually assaulted by a US Senator

The assault, according to Abedin, took place between 2001 and 2009 when Hillary Clinton was the senator from New York.

Former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton longtime aide Huma Abedin has revealed in her forthcoming memoir that she was sexually assaulted by a US Senator. The senator has not been identified either by name or party affiliation.

Abedin, who is of Indian descent, has detailed the assault in soon-to-be-published "Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds", set to be published next week, according to The Guardian.

The assault, according to Abedin, took place between 2001 and 2009 when Hillary was the senator from New York.

Abedin recounts that the assault took place after a dinner that she went to with a few senators and their aides. “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,” she writes, as reported by The Guardian. “Once inside, he told me to make myself comfortable on the couch.”

“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,” Abedin writes.

“I was so utterly shocked, I pushed him away. All I wanted was for the last 10 seconds to be erased.” According to Abedin, the senator seemed surprised by her reaction and apologised, saying he had “misread” her. But then he asked her if she wanted to stay.

“Then I said something only the twenty-something version of me would have come up with – ‘I am so sorry’ – and walked out,” Huma Abedin writes.
