Bill Clinton Defends Franken: It Was a 'Difficult Case' and the SNL Women Defended Him
Townhall.com ^ | 6/8/2018 | Lauretta Brown

PBS’s Judy Woodruff asked former president Bill Clinton Thursday whether he thought it was a “good thing” that norms have changed when it comes to sexual harassment. Woodruff’s example was former Minnesota senator Al Franken being forced to resign his post after accusations that, Woodruff said, were less serious than what happened in the Lewinsky scandal.

"Well, in general, I think it's a good thing, yes," Clinton said about norms changing.

He then proceeded to defend Franken and question the legitimacy of some of the accusations against him.

"I will be honest,” he said, “the Franken case, for me, was a difficult case, a hard case."

He cited the support Franken received from women at ‘Saturday Night Live’ and called the first accusations, from radio anchor Leann Tweeden, “fantastic.”

"There may be things I don’t know. But maybe I’m just an old-fashioned person, but it seemed to me that there were 29 women on ‘Saturday Night Live' that put out a statement for him, and that the first and most fantastic story was called, I believe, into question," he said.

"maybe I’m just an old-fashioned person." Yes Bill, but those women, were liberal trash.

I long for the day when no one gives a rip what anyone named Clinton has to say about anything.

The first story was called into question? Wasn’t Leanne Tweeden, the first one, the one where there’s a picture of Franken squeezing her breasts? Clinton is saying that situation was called into question? Really??

I think it’s funny that, Bill Clinton is supposedly on a book tour for this book he helped write, but almost all of the commentary involves Clinton talking about Monica Lewinsky and sex harrassment issues.

I must say, I don’t even know what Clinton’s book is about. Whatever they want to say about the book is getting lost in the discussion of Clinton’s past behavior and views on those issues now.

Franken had to go. He set up Sessions in hearings based on things leaked to him from Obama’s surveillance on the Trump campaign. Franken had to be shut up and run out of town.

I’m sure superdelegate Al Franken’s early endorsement of Crooked Hillary wasn’t mentioned.

I remember when all the women in the Whitehouse, Mad Albright, Janet Reno, staffers, etc., came out and defended Bill Clinton against these false allegations.

Those photos and videos don’t seem to exist anymore on the Web.
