Bill Clinton Questions Former Senator's Sexual Harassment Accusations: 'A Difficult Case' for Me
Former President Bill Clinton seemed to question the sexual harassment accusations against former Sen. Al Franken on Thursday.
Clinton appeared on PBS with author James Patterson and was asked about the Monica Lewinsky scandal and how it compared to Franken's scandal.
He said that the former senator's case was "hard" for him.
"I'll be honest. The Franken case, for me, was a difficult case, a hard case. There may be things I don’t know," he said.
Clinton has been under scrutiny over his recent remarks about Monica Lewinsky and the #MeToo movement.
He became visibly agitated when he was asked about both during an NBC interview.
He also said that he doesn't owe Lewinsky a personal apology and added that he left the White House $16 million in debt due to the scandal.
Franken resigned from the U.S. Senate last year following numerous sexual misconduct allegations against him.
"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," Clinton also said on Thursday.
Female staff members of "Saturday Night Live" supported Franken in a statement following the claims.
