Former Hillary Clinton Aide Blasts Gillibrand Over Bill Clinton Comments

Gillibrand told The Times that things are different than they were 20 years ago and that in today's climate President Clinton would have faced a different backlash.

The manager of Bill Clinton's successful presidential campaign said in Arkansas' capital city Friday that he remains very proud of the effort more than two decades later.

When asked by The New York Times if Clinton, who stayed in office after his relationship with the former intern was revealed, should have resigned, Gillibrand said "yes". "The House of Representatives voted for articles of impeachment, (but) the Senate did not". Now, Gillibrand is the highest-profile Democrat who's claimed that if President Clinton were to have his affair today, he'd be pressured into resigning.

Reines blasted Gillibrand, saying she has long benefited from the Clintons' help.

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

"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", she said.

"Over 20 [years] you took the Clintons' endorsements, money, and seat", Reines continued, referring to Gillibrand's appointment to Hillary Clinton's vacated Senate seat from NY in 2009 when Clinton left to head the State Department.

"Interesting strategy for 2020 primaries", his tweet continued. Gillibrand holds the U.S. Senate seat that Hillary Clinton once occupied and is very close to the Clintons-Bill Clinton even has campaigned with her.

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. Events include a book signing Saturday by the former first lady and secretary of state and a talk from the Clintons and political strategist James Carville at the Statehouse Convention Center.

Gillibrand's comments came hours after the Democratic Party was rocked by the news that Minnesota Democratic Sen. And so, we're at a moment now, where we believe women who come forward, and we try to hold men accountable, or at least attempt to.

After allegations surfaced that Franken forcibly kissed and groped without consent a radio host during a 2006 USO tour, for which he swiftly apologized, Gillibrand again put party loyalty to one side to condemn her colleague's actions. "But I'll let her speak for herself". "That is very different from what people seem to be remembering from that period because you can go back and look at the history".
