Goldberg: It Takes No Courage for Liberals to Speak Out About Bill Clinton Now
As numerous figures in the media, entertainment and politics face sexual harassment and assault allegations, some on the left have revisited decades-old claims against former President Bill Clinton.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), who was an outspoken supporter of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, said on Thursday that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency over his affair with Monica Lewinsky.
The former president has also been accused by three women — Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones — of sexual harassment or assault.
"25 years after the fact, it's safe to come out against Bill Clinton," Bernie Goldberg said on "America's Newsroom." "Today, Bill Clinton is of no use to the Democratic Party. ... You can't go after everyone else and pretend Bill Clinton didn't do what he did. And you know what else? Hillary Clinton's of no use to the Democratic Party."
He said if Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election, there would not be a barrage of liberals going after her husband.
"It would weaken her presidency, that's why," Goldberg said.
He said he gives "one cheer" to the liberals who are revisiting the allegations against Clinton, even though this should have happened years ago.
"25 years ago, it took courage for a liberal Democrat to speak out against the Democratic president," Goldberg said. "Today, it takes no courage at all. It's kind of easy."
