Hillary Rejected Campaign Chief's Decision to Fire Alleged Sexual Harasser

Hillary Clinton finally responded to the recently unearthed sexual harassment scandal that is alleged to have occurred during her 2008 campaign against Barack Obama. Though Clinton admitted she wouldn't make the same choice again, her statement falls short as an apology, attempting to deflect attention onto others and failing to address some of the key issues in the case. "He also attended Clinton's 70th birthday party past year and tweeted a picture of himself and Clinton having lunch last March".

At first, Noah defended Clinton for her Grammy Awards appearance, in which she read from Michael Wolff's book on President Donald Trump, called Fire and Fury. Strider was also warned that any subsequent harassment would result in immediate termination, Clinton wrote.

On Tuesday, Clinton wrote that she believed at the time that firing was not the best solution. He needed to be punished, change his behavior, and understand why his actions were wrong. [I] came to the conclusion that there was sexual harassment involved; that the young woman was very credible. "I think she would've been extra hesitant to let him go".

"Patti wanted him out but she was overruled", one source said.

Even more puzzling to Noah were Clinton's January 26 tweets about the story, in which she claims the allegations against Strider were "taken seriously and addressed". Over that time, she said, he often made comments about her outfits and her body. Would he have gotten that next job? "You know, I really don't want to divulge, you know, my private conversations or my private counsel to Hillary Clinton".

Excuses Strider gave for his behavior - which he often discounted as harmless - included that he was simply being friendly, or that his Southern background was just shining through, but nonetheless, for the most part, he conceded that most of the accusations made against him actually did take place. But he also apologized, according the publication. "I wish she had said, you know, 'having to do it over I would have fired him'".

Strider in the mid-1990s spent three years as a youth minister with a Southern Baptist mission in Hong Kong.

She said she has been asking herself questions about whether things would have been different had she fired Strider.

During the 2008 campaign, a female staffer accused Strider of touching her inappropriately, sending her suggestive emails and kissing her forehead, according to CNN reports published last week.

"In meetings, he would refer to the "boss lady" and what she wanted done - a sign to people in the extended Clinton orbit that he wielded influence, especially in the eyes of the young staffers who hoped to work for the first woman president", BuzzFeed News' Ruby Cramer pointed out. "While we are revisiting whether my decision from a decade ago was harsh enough, many employers would be well served to take actions at least as severe when confronted with problems now - including the very media outlet that broke this story", she writes.

The story, however, reports that Strider did not attend counseling.

"Would he have done better - been better - if I had fired him?"

After the 2008 campaign, Strider was tasked to lead Correct the Record, an independent group that looked to rebut claims about Clinton as she prepared for her 2016 presidential run. "The staffer was sacked years later from his job at a pro-Clinton PAC over similar harassment allegations".
