Reince Priebus On Rehashing The Monica Lewinsky Scandal: 'Everything's On The Table'

Posted: Updated:

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said he's fine with people bringing up the Monica Lewinsky scandal while assessing a potential presidential run by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), seen as a 2016 presidential contender, has brought up the scandal involving former President Bill Clinton several times in recent weeks. In a January appearance on NBC's "Meet The Press," he called Clinton's behavior "predatory," doubling down on the claim and calling Clinton a "serial philanderer" in an interview with CBS days later.

Priebus told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell on Monday "everything's on the table" for 2016, saying Hillary Clinton "provides a lot of opportunity for us."

"I don't see how someone just gets a free pass on anything. I mean, especially in today's politics," Priebus said. "I think we're going to have a truckload of opposition research on Hillary Clinton, and some things may be old and some things might be new. But I think everything is at stake when you're talking about the leader of the free world and who we're going to give the keys to run the United States of America."
