Bill Clinton Admits He Never Personally Apologized To Monica Lewinsky: “I Did The Right Thing”
In a recent interview that was aired Monday on Today, Bill Clinton opens up about his relationships with Monika Lewinsky back at the days of his presidency.
Does Clinton feel sorry for his affair with Lewinsky? Would he act differently if he had a chance? And finally, did the former president apologize to Monika amid scandal? Bill Clinton’s interview gets heated as he answered to all these questions.
“I did the right thing”
For the first after many years, the 42nd president of the United States, Bill Clinton, opens up about his affair with the White House intern, Monika Lewinsky.
In his interview on Today, Clinton was asked would he handle the situation differently if he had a chance. The former president replied:
A lot of the facts have been conveniently omitted to make the story work. I felt terrible then, and I came to grips with it.
Then, Clinton was asked what he is thinking about #MeToo movement and whether it could change the outcome of his affair with Lewinsky at the present time. Bill said:
This was litigated 20 years ago. I had a sexual harassment policy when I was governor in the ’80s. I had two women chiefs of staff when I was governor. You are giving one side and omitting facts.
Answering to the question about his impeachment amid the sandal with Lewinsky, Clinton explained:
I think I did the right thing. I defended the Constitution.
“I never apologized to her”
And finally, while spoken about Monika, Bill confessed he did not feel that he owed her a personal apology.
I apologized to everybody in the world. But I’ve never talked to her. I did say, publicly, on more than one occasion, that I was sorry. That’s very different. The apology was public.
Even after several decades, ‘Clinton-Lewinsky case’ remains one of the most controversial points in the history of the American presidency.
We look forward to reading your comments on Bill Clinton’s interview.
