Dem Senator Kirsten Gillibrand: Bill Clinton Should’ve Resigned After Lewinsky Affair

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said Thursday that Bill Clinton should have resigned after the Monica Lewinsky affair. “Things have changed today, and I think under those circumstances there should be a very different reaction,” Gillibrand told The New York Times in an interview. “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.” According to the Times, Gillibrand is the most prominent elected Democrat to declare that the former president should have stepped aside after the scandal. Earlier Thursday, Gillibrand spoke out against her colleague Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), who admitted to groping radio host Leeann Tweeden in 2006 after Tweeden went public with her accusation and an accompanying photo of the incident.
