Former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday she didn't know what Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand "was trying to say" when she suggested this week former President Bill Clinton should have stepped down over his affair with Monica Lewinsky that tarnished his presidency.

"I don't exactly know what she (Gillibrand) was trying to say," Clinton told host Rita Cosby on WABC Radio in an exclusive interview Friday while promoting her new book "What Happened."

When asked if she could have been more supportive of women who claimed to have been sexually harassed by her husband, Clinton said each case was different and the allegations were no longer relevant.

"Every situation has to be judged on its own merit," she said. "I don't know that we can rewrite and revise history."

Clinton also slammed Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore and President Trump, saying there is a big difference between those two and allegations surrounding their sexual behavior versus Democratic Senator Al Franken.

Clinton told Cosby that Franken's apology for his inappropriate behavior and his willingness for a Congressional ethics investigation into that "is the kind of accountability I'm talking about. I don't hear that from Roy Moore or Donald Trump... Look at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologizing, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump who have done neither."

Clinton also broached the topic of her involvement in the Uranium One story for which the Department of Justice has hinted it would deploy a special counsel to investigate the issue. She said claims of ties connecting her and the Clinton Foundation to the sale of U.S. uranium to Russia while she was secretary of State were "crazy allegations" by the right.

"I had nothing to do with the decision (on the Uranium One deal). Now that is a fact," Clinton said, adding she thought the allegations were "a political stunt by the Trump administration and its allies to distract from the very serious information coming out about the Trump campaign's connections with Russia."

Clinton spared no words about her feelings for President Donald Trump, who she maintained had "disgraced the office." When asked if there was anything she admired about the president, she said a flat "no" and that he turned out to be worse than she imagined.

"No. The answer is absolutely no, Rita," Clinton said. "I didn't think he'd be as bad as he turned out to be."
