Bill Clinton should've resigned over sex affair, Sen. Gillibrand says

"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 an essay previous year in support of Hillary Clinton's White House bid.

"I think because, when you have hundreds of thousands of people coming out every day about all industries saying, 'This is what happened to me, ' I think a lot of people have finally realized, 'Wow, I didn't quite realize this'".

Gillibrand's disavowal of the Clintons follows other former allies such as Donna Brazile and left-wing Vox columnist Matthew Yglesias. Kirsten Gillibrand says former Democratic President Bill Clinton should have resigned over his sexual affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky 20 years ago.

"Yes, I think that is the appropriate response", Gillibrand told the New York Times, when asked if Clinton should have left the White House.

Clinton was ultimately impeached over the scandal but was acquitted by the Senate and finished his term as president.

"It's very disturbing", Ms. Gillibrand said of Mr. Franken.

In mid-October, well before Gillibrand spoke, a long and measured article in Jacobin considered the double-standard that allowed Bill Clinton to go unscathed by Democrats.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on Thursday went to a place that few Democrats have dared or cared to go when it comes to allegations of sexual assault: Calling out Bill Clinton.

She added, "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 than what has been had to date". She also introduced the "Me Too Congress Act" on Thursday to address yearslong and rampant sexual misconduct on Capitol Hill. Over 20 yrs you took the Clintons' endorsements, money, and seat. This stance would seem to have the dual effect of distinguishing her on a very important issue in that race, but also of potentially alienating the many well-heeled and influential supporters and donors she has in common with the Clintons. Hypocrite", he wrote. "Interesting strategy for 2020 primaries. Even if it's too late to file criminal charges against Clinton and the others (which, of course, would have had to be proven and not merely alleged), it is hardly too late to socially ostracize Clinton if one considers the allegations as plausible as those which have led to the same treatment of the others who have been accused of sexual crimes.
