Kirsten Gillibrand Says Hillary Clinton Gave Her Advice On 2020 Run, Despite Past Comments On Bill Clinton

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said during a CNN town hall on Tuesday night that she has gotten advice from Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, on her 2020 bid for the presidency. “Secretary Clinton is still a role model for all of us,” Gillibrand said in response to a question about her prior comments saying President Bill Clinton should have resigned amid the Monica Lewinsky scandal. “My views on her husband is very different," Gillibrand continued. "And I’ve said all I’m going to say about that.” Gillibrand also said that she thinks their relationship is "strong."
