Brzezinski Calls Bill Clinton a 'Predator' Who Sexually Harassed Lewinsky

Trump takes criticism of Hillary Clinton to all-time high after she questions legitimacy of election

Gillibrand told The Times that things are different than they were 20 years ago and that in today's climate President Clinton would have faced a different backlash.

Gillibrand's remarks are particularly noteworthy considering she was a big supporter of Hillary Clinton's recent presidential campaign.

The "Morning Joe" co-anchor wondered aloud if such behavior reached widespread acceptance during Clinton's time in the White House, where he engaged in a scandalous affair with then-intern Monica Lewinsky. "The House of Representatives voted for articles of impeachment, (but) the Senate did not".

Starr was the independent counsel who revealed Bill Clinton's affair with Lewinsky in a 1998 report.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (2nd R) (D-NY), Rep. Jackie Speier (2nd L) (D-CA), Rep. Bruce Poliquin (L) (D-ME), and Rep. Ann McLane Kuster (R) (D-NH) speak at a press conference on sexual harassment in Congress on November 15, 2017 in Washington, DC.

Clinton was ultimately impeached over the scandal but was acquitted by the Senate and finished his term as president.

Ms. Gillibrand did tell the newspaper that she believed circumstances are different today, however, and what is now deemed a "fireable offense" was more tolerated in the 1990s.

Russian Federation anti-doping body to 'continue its work' after WADA ban
The chief of the United States anti-doping agency described the latest development as "another sad moment in this entire sordid affair".

Philippe Reines, a former Clinton adviser, accused Ms. Gillibrand of being hypocritical for accepting donations and endorsements from both Hillary Clinton and her husband for several years.

"Interesting strategy for 2020 primaries", his tweet continued. She also introduced the "Me Too Congress Act" on Thursday to address yearslong and rampant sexual misconduct on Capitol Hill.

On Thursday, Gillibrand announced that she would donate $12,500 she received from Franken's political action committee to Protect Our Defenders, a group working to end rape and sexual assault in the USA armed forces, the Hill reported.

"This was a painful time, not only in our marriage, but in our country, which I've written about", Clinton said.

With those words, Gillibrand became the most high-profile Democrat yet to censure a man whose influence over the party is encapsulated by his nickname: The Big Dog.

Franken apologized after a photo emerged of him apparently grabbing a woman's breasts while she slept; the woman also said Franken aggressively kissed her without consent while they rehearsed for a USO skit in 2006. "That is very different from what people seem to be remembering from that period because you can go back and look at the history".

Maxwell answered, "I think she's in the right".
