Panetta on Lewinsky affair: Bill Clinton 'more than paid the price'

President Donald Trump answers a question from the

Ms. Gillibrand, who has longstanding ties to the Clintons, is the highest-profile elected Democratic official to say that Mr. Clinton should have stepped down as a result of his affair.

Gillibrand's comments Thursday made her the most prominent Democrat to link this year's increasingly low tolerance for mistreatment of women to the Clinton years.

A former senior adviser to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonGOP rushes to cut ties to Moore Papadopoulos was in regular contact with Stephen Miller, helped edit Trump speech: report Bannon jokes Clinton got her "ass kicked" in 2016 election MORE lambasted Sen.

"Ken Starr spent $70 million on a consensual blowjob". Kirsten Gillibrand for saying former President Bill Clinton should have resigned after his affair with a White House intern came to light. "The House of Representatives voted for articles of impeachment, (but) the Senate did not". He was later acquitted of the charges in the Senate and remained in office.

Henry asked Reines if Hillary Clinton has done any "soul-searching" that she didn't let her husband's accusers "be heard".

"Things have changed today, and I think under those circumstances there should be a very different reaction", Gillibrand explained. But not enough for you @SenGillibrand? Kirsten Gillibrand said she believes Clinton should have resigned after the scandal.

"Over 20 [years] you took the Clintons' endorsements, money, and seat", Reines continued, referring to Gillibrand's appointment to Hillary Clinton's vacated Senate seat from NY in 2009 when Clinton left to head the State Department. Gillibrand holds the U.S. Senate seat that Hillary Clinton once occupied and is very close to the Clintons-Bill Clinton even has campaigned with her.

Her comments came during a panel conversation about the countless women who are speaking out and sharing stories about alleged sexual harassments and sexual assaults they have encountered while working in various industries, including politics.

The issue of sexual harassment and inappropriate relationships in the workplace has dominated the national discussion in wake of bombshell allegations in Hollywood and media circles.

She also called allegations that Franken groped and kissed a woman without her consent "very disturbing".

The statement came at a time when the topic of sexual misconduct is reverberating around Capitol Hill-as it is around nearly every sector in the United States.
