Alyssa Milano has said that Bill Clinton should have been investigated over sexual misconduct allegations.
The 45-year-old actress appeared on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” on Thursday to discuss the Brett Kavanaugh investigation and her support of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
At one point in the conversation, host Chris Cuomo asked Milano about former U.S. president Clinton and the multiple allegations made against him in the ’90s. Cuomo questioned whether Kavanaugh should be given the same benefit of the doubt as Clinton did at the time.
“No,” Milano said in response, “and I don’t think Bill Clinton should have gotten that benefit of the doubt in hindsight.”

Clinton has denied the claims of sexual misconduct by the four women who accused him during his administration. However, the former “Charmed” star believes that those claims should have been properly investigated.
“As a nation we were in a different time,” she said. “I think that women were continually being silenced… We gave him the benefit of the doubt and we probably should have investigated the allegations against him.”
When it comes to the Kavanaugh investigation, Milano stated that it isn’t an issue of “partisan politics,” it is an issue about “humanity.”
“Even though this process is so uncomfortable for everyone, we really have to look at it, look at where we want to be, who we want to be as a nation… I think it’s vital that we get past this and get to the results, which is something that we’re all looking for, which is a just world with equality for women.”
Milano, who detailed her own sexual assault in an emotional speech yesterday, was in attendance at the Supreme Court Senate hearing last week to support Ford during her testimony against Kavanaugh.
