Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) has been one of the strongest voices defending the #MeToo movement on Capitol Hill. Tonight, Gillibrand will appear on 60 Minutes where she'll discuss why she feels it's so important to be candid about sexual harassment, despite the backlash she's received.

The big one, given her willingness to unapologetically call out her friends who have been accused of sexual misconduct, including former Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.): "Where's my moral compass if I can't speak out just because I like someone? Just because they're my friend? It's okay to be a harasser as long as you're my friend? That is not okay."
