During their interview Friday night with Megyn Kelly, Duggar sisters Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald stuck strictly to the family line and downplayed the actions of their brother and molester, Josh Duggar. “We were like, ‘Oh, my goodness, most of the stuff out there is lies,” Dillard said. “It’s not true, so we wanted to come out and set the record straight.”

The sisters defended Josh, who molested five underage girls, as being just a “young boy in puberty who was a little too curious about girls,” adding “that got him into some trouble.” They described his groping as “mild inappropriate touching on fully clothed victims” who were “mostly” asleep.

“He knew in his mind, ‘My actions are wrong and I have bad intentions,’ but he was very sly,” Seewald said. “Like the girls didn’t catch on. It was like, okay, if you catch the girl sleeping a quick feel or whatever…It was very subtle.”
