Bill Clinton Defends Response to Monica Lewinsky Scandal

Democrats and the 'I' word

Democrats and the 'I' word

With Patterson awkwardly by his side, Clinton was grilled, particularly, by NBC News on Today, about his affair with Monica Lewinsky while he was in office. Instead, the conversation turned to the #MeToo movement, prompting Clinton to anxiously defend both his record and his unwillingness to personally apologize to Monica Lewinsky.

Asked about the stark contrast in press coverage between Mr. Obama and President Trump, Mr. Clinton agreed that there was a different standard.

Trump Jr. was responding to Clinton's interview with NBC's The Today Show, during which Clinton claimed he had publicly apologized to Lewinsky but had not spoken to her privately.

He then added that he doesn't think the #MeToo movement would have changed his response at all.

Clinton sat for the interview to promote his new novel with author James Patterson titled "The President is Missing". The Republican Party used an investigation into real estate deals - which essentially turned up nothing - to impeach Clinton because he lied under oath about his relationship with Lewinsky. He also said he has not given her a direct apology. "I love thrillers. I read huge numbers of them". To me, I've never been more moved by an interview, and I really appreciate that Craig Melvin asked those questions and put that entire interview to a stop and stayed with it, finally.

It’s official: Microsoft has acquired GitHub for $7.5 billion
By acquiring GitHub, Microsoft could actually boost its prestige among open-source developers, other analysts believe. With Nadella at the helm, the company has pursued a policy of aggressively recruiting open-source developers.

Clinton said people were only pouncing on him now because they were frustrated with President Trump, who has been accused by multiple women of inappropriate sexual behavior. It matters. They make decisions.

"No. I felt awful then and I came to grips with it", Clinton said ― offering no thoughts as to whether Lewinsky might have also had to grapple with their relationship.

Brzezinski said the former president's evasions created an environment where the current president's supporters can excuse anything by suggesting Clinton had gotten away with similar abuses. I pledge to be a better man tomorrow and will never, ever let you down. "I left the White House 16 million dollars in debt".

Last November, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a New York Democrat with deep ties to the Clintons, said the former president should have resigned over his affair with Lewinsky.
