Clinton Issues Statement Explaining Why She Shielded Sexual Harasser in 2008

Despite being retained by the campaign, the Times reported that Strider was ordered to receive counseling and had his pay docked, while his accuser was transferred to another job on the campaign.

She refused to apologize for keeping Strider on, but did say that if she had to do it again, she "wouldn't".

The New York Times first reported the story on Friday. "I was dismayed when it occurred, but was heartened the young woman came forward, was heard, and had her concerns taken seriously and addressed".

Now that there is no prospect of her ever gaining a political office useful for punishing her enemies, Hillary Clinton's inner circle of advisors and aides are starting to understand that they free to speak their minds.

Clinton insisted the delay in her statement was because she had been "grappling with this and thinking about how best to share my thoughts".

Furthermore, Clinton said that she believes "in second chances" ― and wants to "continue to believe in them" ― despite what others think.

"I was inspired by my conversation with this young woman to express my own thinking on the matter", she wrote. He needed to be punished, change his behavior, and understand why his actions were wrong.

The interview will take place in Davos, where politicians and business leaders have gathered for the World Economic Forum . Without providing specifics, Trump said in an interview with Britain's ITV that he would have used different tactics.

Ms. O'Connell told colleagues that she was concerned that the young woman making the allegations should not be demoted when she was moved from Mr. Strider's supervision. "I thought both could happen without him losing his job".

Being a world-class dissimulator, Clinton sought to tweet the episode away.

A female campaign staffer had accused Clinton's faith adviser, Burns Strider, of harassment that included inappropriate touching, kissing her forehead and sending her suggestive emails, the sources said.

Doyle was asked why Clinton has not admitted that she made a mistake. The woman has not spoken herself, perhaps in part because, as the Times reports, she signed a nondisclosure agreement with the campaign.

"Better than a Friday news dump", Brent Scher of the Washington Free Beacon wrote on Twitter, referring to the frequent practice during the Clinton administration of releasing embarrassing information on Friday evening to minimize its impact on the pre-internet news cycle. "I think she would've been extra hesitant to let him go". She did not address the Times' assertion that she went against advice telling her to fire Strider. "The short answer is this: If I had it to do again, I wouldn't". The most serious accusation was brought by Juanita Broaddrick, who alleges that in 1978, Clinton raped her when he was Arkansas attorney general.

After attempting to explain her decision, Clinton pivots to what feels like a criticism of the Times.

"Many employers would be well served to take actions at least as severe when confronted with problems now - including the very media outlet that broke this story", she said.
