Ex-Clinton aide: Gillibrand a 'hypocrite' for saying Bill should have resigned

Hillary Clinton Questions the Legitimacy of Trump's Election

He signaled Thursday he would not support Gillibrand over other Democrats in future presidential primaries after her comments Thursday.

Her spokesperson later clarified to the Times that had the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal happened today, the former president would have faced more pressure to resign.

Maxwell answered, "I think she's in the right".

Gillibrand's remarks about Clinton exemplify liberal wave of seemingly self-serving historical revisionism.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, the senator from NY who holds the Senate seat once held by Hillary Clinton, believes that former president Bill Clinton should have resigned over his sexual misconduct.

When asked by The New York Times whether he should have stepped down, Gillibrand reportedly "took a long pause" and then said, "Yes, I think that is the appropriate response".

"In my adult life, politically, no one has inspired me to get off the sidelines and truly make a difference more than Hillary Clinton has", Ms. Gillibrand said a year ago in an essay on why she was supporting Mrs. Clinton.

Firefighters are battling a large fire on the top floors of a six-story New York City apartment building. So far, no injuries have been reported , an FDNY spokesman said.

On Thursday, Gillibrand announced that she would donate $12,500 she received from Franken's political action committee to Protect Our Defenders, a group working to end rape and sexual assault in the USA armed forces, the Hill reported.

Reines, long a part of the Clintons' inner circle, played Donald Trump during the Democratic nominee's mock debates. Senate voted to keep POTUS WJC. He was later acquitted of the charges in the Senate and remained in office.

Gillibrand, who took Hillary Clinton's old Senate seat, made the remarks just after news broke that Minnesota Sen. Yet she also pointed to a need to treat the behavior of our current president differently, saying, "I think in light of this conversation, we should have a very different conversation about President Trump, and a very different conversation about allegations against him".

The statement came at a time when the topic of sexual misconduct is reverberating around Capitol Hill-as it is around nearly every sector in the United States.

She was an early supporter of Mrs. Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign and has spent countless hours raising money for Democratic women who run for office, citing Mrs. Clinton as a role model. For someone who has been so closely intertwined with the Clintons throughout her political career, it was an extraordinary statement.

Gillibrand also expressed her disappointment over the news that Senator Al Franken was accused of and apologized for groping and kissing a radio host without her consent. Several other pundits have come forward to acknowledge that Democrats have largely ignored and downplayed the allegations against Clinton.
