Hillary Clinton is firmly rejecting the idea that accusations against her husband are anything like the sexual misconduct allegations against new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh or President Donald Trump.

The former secretary of state, who is joining with her husband for a joint speaking tour where tickets are going for up to $700 each, referenced independent counsel Kenneth Starr’s investigation during the 1990s that led to impeachment.

She called it an ‘intense’ and ‘partisan probe’ that distinguished it from allegations against Trump and Kavanaugh, who sat as the newest Supreme Court justice Tuesday after weathering sexual assault allegations from high school and college.

Bill Clinton ‘really believes that Democrats have to be tougher and have to stand up to the bullying and the intimidation, so I think he’ll have things to say about his own experience and how it applies here,’ Clinton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.

‘I will certainly have a lot to say about what’s going on in the world today based on not only my secretary of state years but my travel, and my book, What Happened, which came out in paperback,’ Clinton said, where she writes ‘about these threats to democracy.’

That prompted a follow-up from the veteran CNN journalist, who noted the tour would prompt questions about what the Clintons went through, the 1998 impeachment, and ‘allegations of sexual harassment.’  She asked whether the situations were similar or different.

‘There’s a very significant difference. And that is the intense, long lasting partisan investigation that was conducted in the 90s,’ Clinton responded, while nodding her head repeatedly.

‘If, you know, the Republicans, starting with President Trump on down want a comparison, they should welcome such an investigation themselves,’ Clinton said.

‘If, you know, the Republicans, starting with President Trump on down want a comparison, they should welcome such an investigation themselves,’ Clinton said.

President Donald Trump went back to blasting Hillary Clinton’s political skills Tuesday, after she called him out for his scorched-earth speech and apology ‘on behalf of our nation’ to Brett Kavanaugh at a swearing-in ceremony for the new Supreme Court justice.

At the Monday evening ceremony, attended by the other justices, Trump pronounced Kavanaugh ‘innocent’ and slammed critics who hammered the president’s nominee with sexual assault charges during a brutal confirmation fight.

Clinton called it a ‘political rally’ that ‘undermined’ the integrity of the court.

Responding to the comment from his former 2016 rival, Trump said: ‘I guess that’s why she lost. She doesn’t get it. She never did.’

‘I knew that a long time ago. Hillary never got it that’s why she lost. Anything else?’ he asked reporters in the Oval Office, who were there to see the president announce the departure of U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley.

Clinton had lashed out at Trump on Tuesday morning, saying: ‘What was done last night in the White House was a political rally. It further undermined the image and integrity of the court.’

‘And that troubles me greatly. It saddens me. Because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government,’ Clinton told CNN in a new interview.

‘I guess that’s why she lost. She doesn’t get it. She never did.’

In Spite of Her Tough Views on Brett Kavanaugh’s Allegations as a TEENAGER, Hillary Clinton Says Bill Should “Absolutely Not” Have Resigned Over Lewinsky Scandal

CBS News October 14, 2018

Hillary Clinton says that her husband was right not to resign from the presidency in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, she told CBS’ “Sunday Morning.” As first lady, she stood by his side as President Bill Clinton was impeached after lying about his affair with Lewinsky, a White House intern.

The former secretary of state said she disagrees with those who now say he should have stepped down.

“In retrospect, do you think Bill should’ve resigned in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal?” correspondent Tony Dokoupil asked.

“Absolutely not,” Clinton said.

“It wasn’t an abuse of power?”

“No. No.”

In the past year, with the rise of the #MeToo movement, a host of key political, business and entertainment figures have resigned or withdrawn from their positions in the wake of allegations of sexual harassment or assault. There has been criticism — from New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, for one — that President Clinton, too, should have resigned after he was impeached by the Republican-led House in December 1998. (The Senate, also controlled by the GOP,  tried and failed to remove him from office several weeks later.)

In May, Mr. Clinton told “Sunday Morning” that he was happy he fought to remain in the White House, and said that #MeToo critics today are “living in a different context.”

In a report that aired on “Sunday Morning” about the rise of women candidates, partially in response to the #MeToo movement, Dokoupil asked Hillary Clinton, “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.'”

“… who was an adult,” Hillary said. “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 [of President Clinton], and it, as I believe, came out in the right place.”

When asked if her husband should have stepped down, Hillary responded: ‘Absolutely not.’

It comes after Hillary earlier rejected the idea that accusations against her husband were anything like the sexual misconduct allegations against Trump or his new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The Clintons are about to embark on a joint speaking tour that could prompt questions about what the Clintons went through, Bill’s 1998 impeachment and allegations of sexual harassment.

The House in 1999 voted to impeach Clinton of perjury and obstruction of its investigation into the affair.

The Senate acquitted him.

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

Bill Clinton said earlier this year that he disagreed with Gillibrand’s comments.
