Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct scandals are still big political stories.
Democrats fear they will come back to haunt the party during the 2020 election season.
But Bill Clinton was shocked into silence by what this woman said about his affairs.
Hillary Clinton Gives Another Shocking Interview
CBS’ Sunday Morning interviewed Hillary Clinton.
Correspondent Tony Dokoupil grilled her about Bill Clinton’s scandals in the wake of the #MeToo movement and Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
“In retrospect, do you think Bill should’ve resigned in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal?” Dokoupil asked.
Hillary blasted the idea that Bill Clinton should’ve resigned from office due to lying under oath about his affair with Monica Lewinsky.
“Absolutely not,” Clinton fired back.
Dokoupil tried again.
He asked Clinton, “It wasn’t an abuse of power?”
“No. No.” Clinton responded.
Critics argue that the President preying on an intern is absolutely an abuse of power.
And many Americans agree with that as well.
Clinton was Lewinsky’s boss.
But Hillary further shocked viewers when she dismissed Bill’s scandals without showing any sympathy for his accusers.
“There are people who look at the incidents of the 90s and they say, ‘A president of the United States cannot have a consensual relationship with an intern; the power imbalance is too great,” Dokoupil began.
Clinton jumped in right in.
“… who was an adult,” Hillary snarled. “But let me ask you this: Where’s the investigation of the current incumbent [president], against whom numerous allegations have been made, and which he dismisses, denies, and ridicules?”
“So, there was an investigation and it, as I believe, came out in the right place.” Clinton concluded.
Why Hillary Is Doing So Many Interviews
Critics wonder why Hillary Clinton is so visible right now.
She is giving a round of media interviews.
In addition, Bill and Hillary are set to go on tour after the November elections.
They will travel the country, “…from the American presidency to the halls of the Senate and State Department to one of the United States’ most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections, they provide a unique perspective on the past, and remarkable insight into where we go from here,” according to one website.
Their tour will also take them to key states like Nevada, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Critics point out this tour will run from after the midterms and into 2019.
That is the time period when Democrats will start announcing they are running for President.
But it could leave a cloud hanging over the campaigns.
The Clintons tour – as well as Hillary’s defense of Bill’s abuse of women – will lead to a new round of stories about her making a third try for the White House in 2020.
Pundits will spend months speculating whether Clinton will jump into the race.
She has the name recognition and fundraising ability to enter in late summer or early fall of 2019.
But no one seriously believes she will run again.
Democrats gave her the chance in 2016.
And she blew it.
