Senator Kristen Gillibrand says Bill Clinton should have resigned, gets called a hypocrite – by fellow Democrats!

As Victory Girl Deanna noted here, this week has been a whirlwind of sexual abuse/harrassment/assault allegations. It started with Roy Moore, then Al Franken entered the scene to shake things up in a bipartisan way, and now poor Bill Clinton is finally here to close out the whole affair. As it should be, he basically started it all.

Gillibrand (D-NY) was asked whether Bill Clinton should have stepped down – from the Presidency – when it was discovered that he had engaged in sexual relations with that woman – Monica Lewinsky. Gillibrand said:

“Yes, I think that is the appropriate response,” she said when asked by the New York Times asked if Clinton should have resigned at the time.

She continued:

“Things have changed today, and I think under those circumstances there should be a very different reaction,” Ms. Gillibrand said. “And 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.”

….

Ms. Gillibrand, who has longstanding ties to the Clintons, is the highest-profile elected Democratic official to say that Mr. Clinton should have stepped down as a result of his affair.

….

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.

“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 last year in an essay on why she was supporting Mrs. Clinton.

Ms. Gillibrand has also noted Mr. Clinton’s support for her own run for office. “I was lucky enough to receive guidance and mentorship from Hillary during that run, and was truly honored that President Bill Clinton campaigned for me in my first run for Congress in 2006,” she wrote in the same essay.
