April Ryan speaks with Hillary Clinton who offers her take on the sexual assault allegations against US Senate candidate Roy Moore and President Trump.


April Ryan: You said that you were expecting a reckoning while on the campaign trail. Do you believe, right now, that there could be a reckoning with this president.You just alluded to it about issues of Miss Universe. He has a number of people who are making claims against President Trump, in the midst of all of this from Harvey Weinstein, we are hearing so much about so many alleged sexual assaults. Do you believe there will be a reckoning now for this president, particularly when his silence is deafening on Roy Moore.

Hillary Clinton: Well, I don’t know the answer to that. You know, there were so many things there should have been a reckoning on in terms of his behavior and rhetoric. The specific issue you raised is one that’s in the news about everybody. But he, once again, seems to be somewhat immune from the impact of what is a very credible set of accusations by women who were brave enough to come forward and tell their story. And so, it really depends on the press because the Republicans are not investigate him, obviously. So, unless the press keeps this front and center about what has come to be seen as credible accusations I think he will continue to avoid accountability. Look, I worry about everything from his past because it tells you how he behaves in the present and will in the future.

AR: Speaking of the debate, a current debate right now, what should happen next, particularly in Alabama, what do you think of Roy Moore?

HC: Oh I think there so many reasons why voters should be very cautious and reluctant to send somebody like him to the US Senate to represent the state of Alabama. It is a long list of his behaviors and beliefs. I’m going to leave the decision to the people of Alabama. But, Alabama deserves better and I think they have a choice that would serve with distinction and being respected and really help the people of Alabama which is what it should be all about.
