Clinton Shoots Down Gillibrand’s Criticism

The former president, responding to Gillibrand's insistence that he should have resigned, implied that she was only criticizing him for political gain.

Presented with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-NY) statement that he should have resigned the presidency, former President Bill Clinton pushed back on Sunday, implying she only attacked him for political gain.

Gillibrand said in late 2017, at the height of the #MeToo movement, that Clinton should have vacated the office amidst the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

“I just disagree with her,” Clinton said. “You have to really ignore what the context was then.”

“But she’s living in a different context, and she did it for different reasons,” he added.

Gillibrand is a prominent 2020 hopeful and was, at least at one time, a strong Clinton ally. That friendship probably ended with her comments on his presidency.
