BREAKING: Uncovered Kaine Comment From 14 Years Ago Could Sink Hillary Campaign

Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton may be seriously regretting picking Tim Kaine to be her running mate.

While the media has been focused on rival Donald Trump’s “errors,” Kaine himself has had a serious of slip-ups, like admitting the United States paid ransom to Iran while his running mate insisted that it wasn’t true.

Now, this latest revelation from Kaine’s past may cause even more damage to Clinton — and certainly some embarrassment. The Daily Beast reported that in 2002, Kaine suggested that President Bill Clinton should have resigned over his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Kaine was commenting to The Richmond Times-Dispatch on a sexual harassment scandal involving a senior Republican in the Virginia legislature.

“‘If the allegations are true, he should definitely resign,’ Kaine said, adding he held the same view about President Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal,” The Times-Dispatch reported, according to The Daily Beast.

Kaine’s view on Clinton certainly seems to have changed now that he has a chance to be vice president, but there is no denying that he didn’t always feel so postively about Bill.

“As the Associated Press reported at the time, Kaine characterized President Clinton’s actions as ‘not appropriate’ conduct, but he had previously been on record criticizing the impeachment effort,” explained Amy Dudley, a spokesperson for the potential vice president.

But there’s obviously a difference between saying something isn’t appropriate and saying that someone should resign because of their actions — a really big difference.

Kaine’s comments will give Trump more ammunition to use against Clinton when he attacks her over her involvement in the Lewinsky scandal. After all, her own running mate even thought her husband had crossed the line while she stubbornly defended him.

It is interesting that Clinton picked Kaine to be her running mate even after he suggested that her husband should have resigned. Perhaps she figured that the media would never bother to report on that statement so she wouldn’t need to worry about it.
