Hillary Clinton: Bill didn't abuse his power

New York Democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand came out a year ago amid the #MeToo movement saying she believed the former President should have stepped down as a result of his affair.

"Monica Lewnisky was an adult, Monica Lewinsky did know the president was married", she said, "So I, she wasn't the one that had the affair, Bill Clinton had the affair". Several other women have accused him of sexual misconduct going as far back as the 1970s, which he has vehemently denied. CBS' "Sunday Morning" host Tony Dokoupil asked.

Then Hillary Clinton immediately pivoted to President Donald Trump's conduct. But the investigation into her husband's potential perjury and obstruction of justice have nothing to do with the mistreatment of Monica Lewinsky, who has since been diagnosed with PTSD stemming from the events of the 90s.

The men were supposed to inspect a mysterious 2-millimeter hole found in the hull of a Soyuz module, docked at the space station. They were to join three of their colleagues at the International Space Station and to deliver supplies to the orbiting outpost.

While Behar said Hillary is merely a "victim of his stupidity", Meghan McCain noted how some of the women accusing Clinton of sexual misconduct felt "intimidated" by Hillary as well. Perhaps her statement will lead to a real discussion about when such a relationship constitutes an abuse of power and when it does not, instead of reflexively declaring all such relationships to be offenses on the part of the superior.

Hillary said that her husband's affair with Lewinsky was not an "abuse of power," though Lewinsky herself has said in the past that she believes it was.

Hillary Clinton was criticized by many for standing by a cheating husband.

"I really commend the women who have been willing to come forward and tell their stories", she said at the time.

"Where's the investigation into the current incumbent, against whom numerous allegations have been made and which he dismisses, denies, and ridicules?" "There was an investigation and it, as I believe, came out in the right place", news agency AFP quoted Clinton as saying.

The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate compared the reaction to her husband's conduct to that of President Trump.
