Bill Clinton Doesn’t Think He Needs To Apologize Monica Lewinsky

Seemingly in response to Clinton's recent comments, Lewinsky tweeted that she is "grateful to the myriad people who have helped me evolve + gain perspective in the past 20 years", and reposted a link to her March discussion with Vanity Fair. "Two-thirds of the American people sided with me".

In this morning's Today show interview, correspondent Craig Melvin asked Clinton about his affair with Monica Lewinsky more than two decades ago and if, were back then today, would he have handled it differently. "He was, at the time, at the pinnacle of his career, while I was in my first job out of college", she wrote.

Mr Clinton's initial response to the media reports in 1998 - "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" - has gone down as one of United States politics' most memorable quotes.

"That's very different. The apology is public".

In the 1990s Mr Clinton was impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice in the wake of his relationship with Ms Lewinsky. But after a 21-day trial, he was acquitted by the Senate of charges relating to the affair. But not bad enough to have ever issued a personal apology to Lewinsky, who in a recent Vanity Fair essay called their affair a "gross abuse of power" on Clinton's part.

"Did Bill Clinton just #metoo Monica Lewinsky??? He was 27 years my senior, with enough life experience to know better".

"If he wants to go out and campaign in 2018, which he should, do you own up to the fact that Monica Lewinski's life has been ruined, that you still have Juanita Broaddrick suffering what she went through", Scarborough said.

In his Harlem talk, Clinton also said: "I support the Me Too movement and. think it is long overdue, and I have always tried to support it in the decisions and policies that I advanced". But it wasn't just this fact that made the former president uncomfortable during an interview with the Today show.

"Clinton added that those in the "#MeToo" movement are partly "frustrated" by allegations against President Donald Trump not being acted upon or taken seriously.

"I think I did the right thing".

When pressed about why he hadn't reached out to Lewinsky personally, Clinton told NBC, "this was litigated 20 years ago".

"The calculation is that you don't even ask them because there is no excitement around them", the Democrat said. "You actually owe EVERYONE an apology, especially her. #MeToo".

Clinton said later in the interview: "Someone should ask you these questions because of the way you formulate these questions. I'm sorry to say I don't have a definitive answer yet on the meaning of all of the events that led to the 1998 investigation; I am unpacking and reprocessing what happened to me".
