Bill Clinton: I wouldn’t handle Lewinsky scandal any differently today

Bill Clinton: I wouldn’t handle Lewinsky scandal any differently today

"He owes all of us an apology", Kathleen Willey, a former volunteer White House aide who has accused Clinton of sexually assaulting her in 1993, told the Daily News.

TRUMP (in the video statement on the "Access Hollywood" tape): I've said some foolish things, but there is a big difference between the words and actions of other people.

"I felt awful then and I came to grips with it", responded Clinton when asked whether his views of the controversy had changed in the wake of #MeToo's social upheavals.

"The suggestion was that I never apologized for what caused all the trouble for me 20 years ago", Clinton said in NY while promoting his new book. "I mean, you have to really ignore what the context was".

"I apologized to everybody in the world", Clinton added.

"Now, at 44, I'm beginning (just beginning) to consider the implications of the power differentials that were so vast between a President and a White House intern", she wrote.

Clinton did say he supports #MeToo and the uncovering of sexual misconduct by people in power, though he has some caveats.

Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., suggested that Clinton should have resigned after his relationship with Lewinsky became public.

Clinton also said the press has "conveniently omitted" a number of facts regarding the Lewinsky affair "to make the story work".

"I like the #MeToo movement", he said. "If the facts were the same today, I wouldn't", he said. "I think that it doesn't mean I agree with everything", he added. "He was, at the time, at the pinnacle of his career, while I was in my first job out of college", she wrote. He also said that considering the way his investigation was handled President Donald Trump's improprieties are not being given the "coverage you would expect".

Melvin: Did you ever apologize to her?

Former President Bill Clinton is out and about promoting a new book, and his interviews are opening some old wounds. He was the most powerful man on the planet.

"This was litigated 20 years ago".

TRUMP (in a statement to The Washington Post about the "Access Hollywood" tape): This was locker-room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. "But you know, she's living in a different context".

He continued: "Because people would be using the facts instead of the imagined facts".

"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.
