Ex-Clinton Aide Dismisses New Focus on Bill’s Accusers: We Already Had ‘Reckoning’ Years Ago

Former Hillary Clinton aide Philippe Reines appeared on Fox News tonight with Ed Henry to talk about the newfound focus on Bill Clinton‘s accusers.

Reines told Ed Henry, “There’s no human being in the United States whose personal life, their infidelities, were looked at more than Bill Clinton.”

He said Clinton’s accusers were “afforded the opportunity to confront him” and Clinton had the opportunity to defend himself.

Henry brought up his Twitter swipe at Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Reines called her a “hypocrite” after she said Clinton should have resigned, and he told Henry tonight it’s “strange” she didn’t vocalize this position until this week.

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

Reines said she dealt with this issue as both a wife and a public figure years ago, saying the idea that there should be some new reckoning here is “not necessary when it comes to Bill Clinton, because, in 1998, we all lived through the greatest reckoning in American political history.”
