The New York Senator says Bill Clinton should have resigned in light of his impeachment connected to the Monica Lewinsky situation….
A former aide to Hillary Clinton attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand as a “hypocrite” late Thursday night over comments the lawmaker made to The New York Times that former President Bill Clinton should have resigned during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
“Ken Starr spent $70 million on a consensual blowjob. Senate voted to keep POTUS WJC. But not enough for you @SenGillibrand?” Philippe Reines, an adviser to Hillary Clinton during her tenure in the Senate, at the State Department and during last year’s campaign, wrote on Twitter. “Over 20 yrs you took the Clintons’ endorsements, money, and seat. Hypocrite. Interesting strategy for 2020 primaries. Best of luck.”
Included in Reines’ online post was a link to the Times story, in which Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said it would have been the “appropriate response” for Bill Clinton to resign in response to revelations that he had a sexual relationship with a White House intern, Lewinsky, while he was president. Gillibrand couched her statement to the Times by saying Clinton’s scandal occurred in a different era and that it would have played out much differently had it happened today.
A spokesman for Gillibrand emphasized that point in a follow-up with the Times. Gillibrand’s office did not immediately return a request for a comment on Reines’ online attack….Share on Facebook
