Lemon, who recounted his own experience with sexual assault, began to break down as he explained that a family member told him just last week that she had been sexually assaulted years ago.

When he asked her why she hadn’t told him sooner, he said, she replied: “Shame.”

“And even though it happened then,” the CNN host said Monday, “there is still pain now. And it still matters now.”

The emotional moment came after two women accused Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
