Duggar Sisters, Jessa & Jill, Talk to Megyn Kelly in Emotional Interview
Megyn Kelly's exclusive sit-down with the Duggar family continues Friday as she talks to Josh Duggar's sisters, Jessa and Jill.
On "The Kelly File" Wednesday, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar reflected on the admission by their son that he had molested his younger sisters.
Kelly asked Jim Bob and Michelle what it was like as parents when they learned about their son's actions more than a decade ago.
"There was so much grief in our hearts. I think as parents we felt we’re failures, you know? Here we tried to raise our kids to – to do what’s right and know what’s right. And yet, one of our children made really bad choices and I think as a parent we were just – we were devastated," Michelle Duggar said.

There have been questions over why the police report on Josh Duggar's abuse of his sisters was made public now, since juvenile records are supposed to remain sealed.
Kelly asked the girls about their reaction when they learned this information had been leaked to tabloids.
"They don't have a right to do this. We're victims. They can't do this to us. ... Yet they did," said Jill.
Kelly also asked the sisters if they felt like victims of molestation.
"I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or a pedophile or a rapist, some people are saying," Jessa replied. "I’m like that is so overboard and a lie really. I mean people get mad at me for saying that, but I'm like, I can say this. I was one of the victims."
