Bill Clinton Bristles at Questions on Lewinsky, #MeToo

Clinton ‘Impeachment hearings would have begun’ for a Dem president

"Nobody believes I got out of that for free", he said. "If the facts were the same today, I wouldn't. You are giving one side and omitting facts", the former president added. However he was later acquitted in the Senate and remained in power until 2001. And some, including Sen.

Scarborough and Brzezinski argued whether the Democratic party need the Clintons. The former president said his critics are engaging in revisionist history. "I think it's way overdue. I defended the Constitution", added the former president.

The former U.S. president is on a book tour to promote his new book, "The President Is Missing", co-written with best-selling author James Patterson. 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. "I still have some questions about some of the decisions which have been made".

Speaking to NBC on Monday, Mr Clinton said it was not necessary for him to resign following the revelations of an affair with Ms Lewinsky, who was 22 years old at the time. "He was the most powerful man on the planet. He was 27 years my senior, with enough life experience to know better", Lewinsky wrote.

"Through the lens of #MeToo now, do you think differently or feel more responsibility?" asked anchor Craig Melvin.


"I felt awful then, and I came to grips with it", Clinton said. "And I came to grips with it".

Melvin: "I asked if you'd ever apologized".

"Someone should ask you these questions, because of the way you formulate the question", Clinton fired back, noting that he did not leave the Oval Office without punishment, explaining that he'd left the presidency $16 million in debt over the affair. But you typically have ignored gaping facts in describing this.

"His great legacy is now we have half the country, any time you talk about the conduct of Donald Trump, anything that's wrong, says like that, 'What about Bill Clinton?'" Schmidt said. "(Except, perhaps, in their memoirs.) Jimmy Carter seems to have been our first presidential novelist with 'The Hornet's Nest.' Appearing more than 20 years after he left office, it is set during the Revolutionary War and is so earnest and instructive that Carter most likely did write it himself...."
