Dem Sen Baldwin: Bill ‘Paid a Price’ In Reputation for Sex Assault Accusations, ‘There Was a Trial’ in the House


On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), who is supporting Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responded to a question on whether Democrats did enough to condemn former President Bill Clinton for the accusations of sexual assault against him by stating that “there was a trial” in the House and Bill “paid a price” in damage to his reputation.

Baldwin said, “[T]here was a trial, in the House of Representatives. It was actually right before I was elected to the House of Representatives, and that the inquiry was made. It was very public. He’s paid a price, in terms of his reputation, but this is an — a completely different situation that we are facing today. And we are talking about somebody who, as we’ve watched Donald Trump throughout the course of this campaign, he’s showed how dark his soul is, but now he is proving himself to be a truly dangerous man, and he cannot and will not be the president of the United States.”
