The former Secretary of State, who is on tour for her new book “What Happened,” blasted Alabama GOP Senate Nominee Roy Moore and President Trump, lumping them together, and saying there is a big difference between those two and allegations surrounding their sexual behavior versus Democratic Senator Al Franken. She says Franken’s apology for his inappropriate behavior and his willingness for a Congressional ethics investigation into that “is the kind of accountability I’m talking about. I don’t hear that from Roy Moore or Donald TrumpLook at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologizing, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump who have done neither.” 
 
Secretary Clinton says President Trump “has disgraced the office.” When asked by host Rita Cosby if there is anything she admires about President Trump or what he’s accomplished while in office, she quickly answered, “No. The answer is absolutely no, Rita.. I didn’t think he’d be as bad as he turned out to be.
 
On Roy Moore she said, “Clearly he doesn’t appear to be someone who will bring respect and honor to the state of Alabama.”  When asked about her own husband’s past behavior and if she should’ve been more supportive of his female accusers versus reports that she attacked their credibility, “Every situation has to be judged on its own merit.” She further said those allegations were investigated and recent comments by others about her husband are not relevant, “I don’t know that we can rewrite and revise history.
 
Of specifically Senator Gillibrand’s recent comments about President Clinton, that he should’ve resigned after his affair with Monica Lewinsky, “I don’t exactly know what she (Gillibrand) was trying to say.
 
On the Administration’s tax reform plan, Secretary Clinton made a bold prediction, “I will predict to you that a number of Republican members of Congress who voted for it, will lose their seats in 2018.” Of the Senate GOP tax plan, It’s “gone from bad to worseThis is bad policy, that is downright cruel to working Americans.”
 
Clinton called the Uranium One allegations “a political stunt by the Trump Administration and its allies to distract from the very serious information coming out about the Trump campaign’s connections with Russia.” She calls the Uranium One allegations tied to her and the Clinton Foundation, “crazy allegations” by the political right. “I had nothing to do with the decision (on the Uranium One deal). Now that is a fact.
