In a random act of journalism, CNN actually asked Hillary Clinton about the multiple sexual assault allegations against her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
CNN’s Christiane Amanpour asked her specifically how the allegations against Bill Clinton are any different than the allegations made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“Obviously you’re going to be prepared to have questions about that moment in 1998, the impeachment, the allegations of sexual harassment against your own husband,” Amanpour said. “Are you prepared to answer those questions? Is he prepared to answer them? And how do you see that similar or different from what President Trump is being accused of and Kavanaugh and others today?”
Bill Clinton has been accused of everything from sexual harassment to rape, according to accuser Juanita Broaddrick.
Of course, she says the allegations against her husband are very different.
“There’s a very significant difference. And that is the intense, long-lasting partisan investigation that was conducted in the ’90s,” Clinton responded. “If, you know, the Republicans, starting with President Trump on down, want a comparison, they should welcome such an investigation themselves.”
Watch the video below:
What “partisan investigation” is she referring to? The probe by Independent Counsel Ken Starr, who was appointed by judges on the DC Circuit, not partisan lawmakers.
But why let facts get in the way?
Rather than push back, Amanpour merely responded, “Hillary Clinton, thank you very much indeed for joining me.”
In the same interview, Clinton actually advocated for incivility toward President Donald Trump and Republicans until Democrats regain power.
"You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton said. “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that's when civility can start again.”
