We are completely speechless!
As we reported, Josh Duggar has admitted to — and apologized — for molesting underage girls, including his own sisters, starting at the age of 12.
Well we're now hearing reports that his own parents — Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar — initially tried to cover up these acts of sexual intrusion… for over a year!
According to a police report obtained by InTouch, Josh confessed to his father on three separate instances that he inappropriately touched at least one sister.

However, the patriarch DID NOTHING about it until the third occasion!
While the TLC parents then reportedly enrolled their son in a treatment program, they neglected to contact authorities until at least four months after the third incident.
This means that the reality TV stars waited 16 months after first hearing about their son's dilemma!
Basically, had Jim Bob and Michelle acted at the onslaught of this crime, they could have prevented other acts of perversion!
While it's possible that the conservatives could be charged for permitting abuse of a minor, the statute of limitations has long passed.
Jim Bob and Michelle are speaking to Megyn Kelly later tonight on Fox News. We'll be watching!
