Clinton Aide Reines on Moore, Trump: 'Ivanka Demeans Herself' by 'Covering For Donald's Sins'
Clinton aide Philippe Reines reacted to renewed criticisms of Bill Clinton as well as Ivanka Trump's comments about people suspected of sexual misconduct against young women.
Reines said Judge Roy Moore (R-Ala.) should step aside in the wake of several allegations of sexual misconduct, but said that Bill Clinton's alleged infidelities have already been litigated.
Ed Henry challenged Reines on the fact that while special prosecutor Kenneth Starr was investigating President Clinton in the 1990s, no charges had been proven and he nor Democrats were demanding he resign the presidency.
"You don't know what's true and what's not," he said, asking Reines about a tweet directed at Ms. Trump's comments about people accused of things Moore has been.
Trump said there is a "special place in Hell for people who prey on children," reportedly a reference to claims against Moore.
Let’s not get carried away here.
Ivanka took her sweet time to speak, then didn’t say Moore should drop out. She checked the family box since donald hasn’t.
In my book there’s a special place in hell for those who exist only to cover for donald’s sins.https://t.co/epPt3Isf6l

Reines later tweeted that Trump did not speak out on Moore right away, saying there's equally a "special place in Hell for those who only exist to cover Donald's sins."
To date, President Trump has not called for Moore to remain in or bow out of his December race.
Reines told Henry that Ms. Trump has a record of "enabling and covering for her father."
"Ivanka demeans herself with her behavior," he said.
Reines also was asked about a tweet critical of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), who said she now wishes President Clinton was investigated further at the time of misconduct claims against him.
When it comes to addressing sexual harassment, Congress should not play by their own set of rules. As elected officials, we should be held to the highest standards.

"Starr spent $70 million on a consensual [sex act]. Senate voted to keep [Clinton] but not enough for you, Senator Gillibrand? Over 20 years you took the Clintons' endorsements, money and seat. Hypocrite."
Gillibrand sits in the senate seat Hillary Clinton once held, after being appointed by then-Gov. David Paterson (D-N.Y.).
