Hillary Clinton dismissed on Tuesday comparisons of the sexual misconduct allegations against her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and those lodged against President Trump.

Clinton argued that the main difference between the allegations is that Republicans launched a lengthy investigation into the claims against her husband, and have not done so for the accusations against Trump.

"There's a very significant difference, and that is the intense, long-lasting, partisan investigation that was conducted in the '90s," Clinton told CNN.

"If the Republicans, starting with President Trump on down, want a comparison, they should welcome such an investigation themselves," she continued.

The allegations against Clinton became public during his eight years in the White House, and were eventually included in independent counsel Ken Starr’s years-long investigation into the president.

Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, and Paula Jones accused Clinton of sexual misconduct, which he has denied. During Paula Jones’ lawsuit against Clinton, the president’s affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky came to light. Clinton lied about his relationship with Lewinsky under oath and was eventually impeached by the House.

Nearly two dozen women accused Trump of sexual misconduct during the 2016 presidential campaign. Trump has denied the allegations. One of Trump’s accusers, Summer Zervos, sued him for defamation after he called the women liars.
