Bill Clinton Should Have Resigned Over Lewinsky Scandal, Says Democratic Senator

Bill Clinton Should Have Resigned Over Lewinsky Scandal, Says Democratic Senator

Gillibrand was asked directly by a reporter for the New York Times about whether he should have stepped down, and she responded by saying, "Yes, I think that is the appropriate response". "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".

Still, it was a remarkable statement from a senator who enthusiastically backed Mrs. Clinton's presidential bid previous year but has been deeply involved in legislative efforts to curb sexual abuse and harassment in the military and on college campuses.

"Bill Clinton did very important things for this country, but my point is about this conversation we are having today, and that we need to have the highest standards for elected leaders, and we have to change what's happening throughout society, and we have to allow people to tell their stories".

She also called allegations that Franken groped and kissed a woman without her consent "very disturbing".

The book's title, "You'd Better Put Some Ice On That", is a reference to what Broaddrick says Clinton told her after he allegedly raped her in an Arkansas hotel room in 1978.

With those words, Gillibrand became the most high-profile Democrat yet to censure a man whose influence over the party is encapsulated by his nickname: The Big Dog.

On Thursday, Gillibrand announced that she would donate $12,500 she received from Franken's political action committee to Protect Our Defenders, a group working to end rape and sexual assault in the USA armed forces, the Hill reported. She also introduced the "Me Too Congress Act" on Thursday to address yearslong and rampant sexual misconduct on Capitol Hill.

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.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said President Bill Clinton resigning during the Monica Lewinsky affair would have been the "appropriate response". As she potentially hopes to stand out among what looks set to be an unprecedentedly crowded Democratic field for 2020, the move, calculated or not, could pay major dividends.

Gillibrand joined both Bill and Hillary Clinton previous year as she campaigned on behalf of Hillary Clinton's bid for the White House.

A spokesperson later clarified that Gillibrand was referring specifically to what Clinton should have done should the incident have happened in 2017.
