Bill Clinton should have resigned after Lewinsky affair, New York Democrat says

Clinton and Trump during a heated debate campaigning for the presidential position

Gillibrand's remarks are particularly noteworthy considering she was a big supporter of Hillary Clinton's recent presidential campaign. "The House of Representatives voted for articles of impeachment, (but) the Senate did not".

The "Morning Joe" co-anchor wondered aloud if such behavior reached widespread acceptance during Clinton's time in the White House, where he engaged in a scandalous affair with then-intern Monica Lewinsky. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., asserted that, in retrospect, Clinton should have resigned from the presidency after the disclosure of his extramarital affair with intern Monica Lewinsky. He was later acquitted of the charges in the Senate and remained in office.

Philippe Reines, a former Clinton adviser, accused Ms. Gillibrand of being hypocritical for accepting donations and endorsements from both Hillary Clinton and her husband for several years.

"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.

"Things have changed today, and I think under those circumstances there should be a very different reaction", she says. Reines called her a "hypocrite" after she said Clinton should have resigned, and he told Henry tonight it's "strange" she didn't vocalize this position until this week. "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".

There's been a growing national furor over sexual harassment and misconduct, including a remarkable House hearing earlier this week in which lawmakers addressed what they described as a rampant sexual harassment problem on Capitol Hill.

Interesting strategy for 2020 primaries. 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.

Gillibrand's comments came hours after the Democratic Party was rocked by the news that Minnesota Democratic Sen.

"What the "Me Too" movement has done is transform this debate", Ms. Gillibrand said. Al Franken (D-Minn.) of forcefully kissing and groping her during a USO tour in 2006. "But I'll let her speak for herself". And so, this is a very accelerated moment, where we're not really sure where to go from here in terms of public accountability for elected officials and politicians and people in Hollywood.
