Monica Lewinsky Calls Out Media for Not Pushing Clinton About Affair

"I remember looking out the window and thinking the only way to fix this was to kill myself, to jump out the window", Lewinsky says in an upcoming A&E special.

"What feels more important to me than whether I am owed or deserving of a personal apology is my belief that Bill Clinton should want to apologize", she added.

Monica Lewinsky said Monday that she made a decision to participate in a new documentary series about her infamous 1990s affair with then-President Bill Clinton so that she could ensure that her experience "never happens to another young person in our country again". In it, Lewinsky said she would like to apologize directly to Hillary Clinton.

"I went to dinner that night".

Lewinsky specifically addressed the power dynamic between the president of the United States and an intern, an imbalance Hillary Clinton dismissed because Lewinsky was an adult at the time. While promoting the series, Lewinsky has claimed that "no sexual activity happened in the Oval Office", but admitted to several steamy details of the relationship - such as a bathroom romp that resulted in the infamous stained dress. Was I owed a direct apology from him? Is she telling the truth or lying?

"I don't talk about this very often, and I still feel uncomfortable talking about it because I think it's not as if it didn't register with me that he was the president, obviously it did", she said.

He also gave her a "really handsome copy" of "Leaves of Grass" by Walt Whitman. It's an intimate book that you don't give lightly.

A string of diplomatic meetings are now being lined up to take place if Mrs May survives her Cabinet meeting at 2pm today. He added: "It's not enough for May to secure support for her deal from Cabinet, or even from Parliament".

The Clinton Affair features in-depth interviews with Clinton accusers Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, and Juanita Broderick, as well as people close to the Clintons, but Lewinsky's interview is undoubtedly the biggest draw of the series. "Is that there? Whatever those insecurities were, they kind of vanished in some way with him giving me this gift", Lewinsky said. Unbeknownst to me then, I was on the precipice of a rabbit hole, ' Lewinsky recalls.

"I sort of stood up and said I wanted to move past that stage and so he finally said OK".

"So that finished and then I hugged him after". "And I was mortified and afraid of what this was going to do to my family". And, all these years later, she's still got something to say.

In 1998 grand jury testimony, she said she initially thought the marks on her dress "could be spinach dip or something".

The former White House intern is featured in a new six-part docuseries for the network called "The Clinton Affair", which debuts Sunday.

When the two women figured out that the president's semen was deposited on the blue Gap dress, Tripp - who was taping Lewinsky - encouraged her to keep it.
