House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) struggled to explain past statements she made about accusations of sexual assault against former President Bill Clinton, during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday.

NBC’s Chuck Todd played a clip of Pelosi on “Meet the Press” from 1998 where Pelosi defended Bill Clinton.

Todd asked Pelosi if she agrees with the idea that society is experiencing a generational change when it comes to accusations of sexual assault.

“Well, obviously it is a generational change. Let me say the concern we had then was that they were impeaching the President of the United States and for something that had nothing to do with the performance of his duties,” Pelosi responded.

Pelosi then told Todd it’s time to move forward and that women are now saying “no more.”

Todd interjected and asked Pelosi why she thought the reaction was so different from women regarding Bill Clinton, compared to Roy Moore.

“We are talking about a child molester,” Pelosi responded, referring to the accusations against Roy Moore.

Todd pointed out that Bill Clinton was accused of being a sexual predator and that one woman even accused Bill Clinton of rape.

“Why don’t we talk about how we go forward? Nobody is proud of President Clinton’s behavior at the time,” Pelosi responded.

Todd followed up by asking Pelosi if she thinks we are at this moment because of how Democrats handled the accusations against Bill Clinton.

Pelosi didn’t agree with the assessment and told Todd that she believes we are at this moment in history because of the election of President Trump.
