Former President Bill Clinton took issue with comments made by Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand saying he should have resigned the presidency over sexual allegations.

When asked in November whether Clinton should have resigned after admitting he had a sexual relationship with an intern, Gillibrand told the New York Times, “Yes, I think that is the appropriate response.”

“Things have changed today, and I think under those circumstances there should be a very different reaction,” she continued.

But in a CBS interview set to be aired Sunday, Clinton told Mo Rocca that he didn’t regret staying in office and fighting Republican efforts to impeach him for perjury related to the Monica Lewinsky scandal.


“It wasn’t a pleasant experience. But it was a fight that I was glad to undertake after the elections, when the people had solidly told, by two-thirds or more, the Republicans to stop it,” he said according to a CBS press release. “They knew there was nothing impeachable. And so, we fought it to the end. And I’m glad.”

Asked about Gillibrand’s comments in particular, Clinton told Rocca he disagreed with them.

“You have to– really ignore what the context was,” Clinton says. “But, you know, she’s living in a different context. And she did it for different reasons. So, I – but I just disagree with her.”

Clinton’s comments come after his wife Hillary Clinton also pushed back against Gillibrand’s attack. “It was investigated fully. It was addressed at the time. He was held accountable. That is very different than what people seem to be remembering from that period because you can go back and look at the history,” Hillary Clinton said last November.
