‘Absolutely not’: Hillary says no way hubby should have stepped down over Lewinsky affair

What would Democrats be without the double standard they fall back on, especially when it comes to the treatment of women.

Failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was adamant Sunday that husband Bill’s sexual liaison with Monica Lewinsky, a 22-year-old White House intern at the time, was no cause for him to resign — the affair resulted in the former president’s impeachment on perjury and obstruction charges.

“Absolutely not,” Mrs. Clinton said during a CBS “Sunday Morning” interview when asked if then-President Clinton should have stepped down.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said in a 2017 interview that Bill Clinton should have resigned following the Lewinsky scandal, so not all Democrats agree with Hillary.

While Democrats did their best to crucify Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over uncorroborated claims of sexual abuse, the former secretary of state defended Bill’s actions by noting that Lewinsky “was an adult.”

Quite a statement, given how thoroughly Democrats have weaponized the #MeToo movement — Hillary said critics today are “living in a different context.”

A new video of President Bill Clinton and his free-roaming hands posing for a photo with a fresh-faced Lewinsky was just released by the Clinton Library as a result of a FOIA request.

Astoundingly, Hillary Clinton denied she played any role in attacking the character of the women who came forward with allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior, to include a claim of rape, against her husband. A denial that flies in the face of history.

Pivoting on a dime away from his sexual affair, Hillary asked about allegations made against President Donald Trump.

“But let me ask you this: Where’s the investigation of the current incumbent, against whom numerous allegations have been made, and which he dismisses, denies, and ridicules?” she said.
