Swalwell Won’t Say Whether Bill Clinton Should Have Resigned: ‘I Was 15 Years Old’ (The Washington Free Beacon)

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D., Calif.) said on CNN that he is not qualified to comment on the matter of former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment because he was 15 years old when it happened.

In an interview that aired Monday, Clinton hit back at Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) for saying he should have resigned after he tried to cover up a sexual relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. CNN host Erin Burnett asked Swalwell whether he agreed with Clinton or Gillibrand, and Swalwell said he was unable to say because of his age.

"I was 15 years old when that happened," Swalwell said, before explaining the importance of sincere apologies.
