That dynamic is on display in the controversy surrounding U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Tuerkheimer said, with Kavanaugh and his allies denying allegations from a woman that he sexually assaulted her in high school.
The former entertainer - once known for his starring role on The Cosby Show - has never admitted guilt.
His wife Camille Cosby recently claimed that that O'Neill is biased against her husband in a state ethics complaint.
