Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) for saying that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency over his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

"Sen. Gillibrand, having accepted endorsements, campaign funding and support for many, many years, to turn on President Clinton gratuitously, boy, I think there's just a special place in hell for people like that", Schoen, a former adviser to Clinton, said.

"Ken Starr spent $70 million on a consensual blowjob". In the essay, she wrote adoringly of Hillary Clinton, who mentored Gillibrand during her own run for office and said she was "truly honored" that Bill Clinton had campaigned for her congressional run in 2006. But not enough for you @SenGillibrand?

Gillibrand, who occupies Clinton's former senate seat, said in an interview with the New York Times that she thought Bill stepping down after the scandal broke would have been "the appropriate response".

Joseph Spector writes for Gannett's Albany (N.Y.) Bureau. Their change of heart not only comes after Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election, but during a time when the Democrats are desperate to oust "outsider" Roy Moore from the Republican senate race.

The graphic jab came after Gillibrand leveled some of the highest-level criticism yet at former President Clinton.

World Economic ForumThe dynamics that led to Democrats protecting Bill Clinton from accusations of sexual assault and rape haven't changed. The death of Mary Jo Kopechne might have doomed a lesser political figure than the late Sen. (At least O.J. Simpson had the grace to spend a few months looking for "the real killer.") Hillary had put the many women who'd credibly accused her husband of sexual misconduct into the forgetting hole and forgotten that women-progressive women and conservative women alike-have a very different view of rape and assault than they did 20 years ago. The senator added that perhaps President Trump's past behavior and comments about women also deserve more scrutiny.

"She caught me and took my hand and said 'I am so happy to meet you".
