Hillary Clinton's vice presidential running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine once said that her husband, Bill Clinton, should have resigned after his sex scandal with Monica Lewinsky.

In 2002, Kaine made the comment in a newspaper article found by The Daily Beast. "If the allegations are true, he should definitely resign," Kaine said at the time.

During an interview with Iowa TV station KCRG, Kaine followed up on his comments from 2002. "It was a feeling I had at the time, but right now, I'm thinking, what do we have to do to help this country be strong, so past controversies don't have anything to do with that question," the Virginia senator said.

In an interview with another Iowa TV station, KWWL, Kaine said, "20 years ago I was disappointed like a lot of folks were. But I tell you, there is no reason to re-litigate problems of 20 years ago when Americans want to talk about what we do today and tomorrow."

Kaine is speaking on behalf of Hillary Clinton in "deep red" states that are considered more likely to vote for Republican candidate Donald Trump, according to Politico.
