Megyn Kelly scolded a Trump surrogate for claiming that new sexual assault allegations against Trump aren't valid because no complaints were ever filed until now. Kelly said, "You know the fact that a women doesn't come forward when she's been sexually groped doesn't mean it didn't happen."

On Fox News' The Kelly File, David Wohl, an attorney and Trump surrogate vilified all the women that have come forward after Trump told a debate audience that he never did anything sexually inappropriately.

Wohl, blamed the Clinton campaign for coordinating all these women's statements and attacked the accusers of not being credible because they hadn't come forward before.

He said, "If these were credible, Megyn. Why weren't there any criminal complaints filed. Why weren't there any civil suits..."

Kelly cut in and said, "David. You know very well the reason for that. You know the fact that a women doesn't come forward when she's been sexually groped doesn't mean it didn't happen."

She continued, "Most women.."

"On an airplane, Megyn?"

Kelly. "Sadly, move past it with an understanding that they likely will be attacked brutally if the come forward, especially against a powerful man."

He weakly replied, "That's one thing."

Later in the segment Kelly shot down Wohl's thesis that the Clintons are behind the latest revelations and said, "There isn't evidence of collusion, you just suspect it, but there's no evidence of it ?"

(I'm getting a headache listening to Wohl as I write this post)

Wohl was so amped-up he began stumbling over his words, like Donald does.

He said, "She has no credibility, she had to have filed, she - on an airliner when Trump sexually assaulted, groped her, nothing ever happened, no one saw it, there were no witnesses, absolute garbage."

Megyn replied, "David, can I just can you, was there a witness to Juanita Broderick?"

He began spewing nonsense and Kelly said, "The Trump supporters are willing to believe her. You can't have it both ways."

After he attacked Bill Clinton, Kelly mocked him and said, "So you have to complain, you have to make a record of it when it happens otherwise it didn't happen, good to know."

Wohl thought she was agreeing with his absurdity and said, "Bingo!"

Kelly replied, "I know you as a lawyer know that's not true. I know that's not true."

And she ended the segment.

Kelly called David Wohl a liar to his face and that's what he is.

I guess he gets paid by both the word AND the lie, because he was speed talking and lying throughout the entire segment.

And kudos to Megyn Kelly, who as a lawyer and a woman knows plenty about why women don't come forward in these cases. And the fact that Trump lied about his behavior on Sunday night at the debate clearly re-opened the wounds he inflicted earlier. They are coming forward because he lied about them.
