Sen. Gillibrand Rebukes Criticism For Clinton Comments, Says Harrassment Culture Needs to Change

Play

US Senator from New York Kirsten Gillibrand is pushing to change the sexual harassment culture in Washington. In an interview last week with the New York Times, Gillibrand said President Clinton should have resigned over his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky 20 years ago. Gillibrand’s been criticized for waiting until now to make the comments. Philippe Reines, an ex-Hillary Clinton advisor, called Gillibrand a “hypocrite” on Twitter. Reines said the Senator shouldn’t have taken campaign contributions if she felt so strongly about Clinton’s affair. During a visit to Broome County on Monday, Gillibrand said Reines’ comments were wrong, but didn’t focus much on the criticism.
