    Hillary Clinton said that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is being groomed by Moscow to run as a third-party spoiler candidate in 2020 to help President Trump win reelection. The former secretary of state pushed the theory on the Campaign HQ podcast hosted by David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s campaign manager in 2008. Plouffe and Clinton discussed hurdles the Democratic nominee would face and compared the 2020 race to Clinton’s loss to Trump in 2016. Plouffe asked Clinton about the part third-party candidates, such as Jill Stein of the Green Party, played in 2016, allowing Trump to secure key states. "They are...

Lewinsky, 46, told Guthrie she's looking for a "proper career" and would like to continue her work as a storyteller.(snip) While running for president in 2016, Hillary Clinton -- who famously stood by her husband during the scandal -- said he should not have resigned after the scandal with Lewinsky, whom she called an "adult."

    On Tuesday morning, former First Lady Hillary Clinton said not getting a divorce from former President Bill Clinton was the "gustiest thing" she's ever done, personally. Publicly and politically, she said the gutsiest thing she's done is run for president. "I think the gutsiest thing I’ve ever done ... Personally, make the decision to stay in my marriage. Publicly, politically, run for president," Clinton said at an event for her latest book. She co-wrote The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience with her daughter, Chelsea.

    A made-for-TV drama about the Clinton-Lewinsky sex scandal couldn’t debut at a worse possible time for Democrats — just weeks before the 2020 presidential election. FX has announced that “American Crime Story: Impeachment” will chronicle former President Bill Clinton’s encounter with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky and the impeachment proceedings that followed. The release date, Sept. 27, 2020 — could be a political pain for Democrats. Election Day is on Nov. 3. “Timing is everything and the timing they chose couldn’t be worse for the Democrats,” said political consultant Hank Sheinkopf, whose clients have included Clinton and former Mayor Mike...

    New Mexico Democratic Gov. Bill Richardson will go before the U.S. Senate in coming weeks as Barack Obama’s nominee for secretary of Commerce. Will Democrats in that chamber remember his performance in 1999 and 2000 as Energy secretary, when secrets disappeared from nuclear laboratories, and one Democratic senator promised to oppose Richardson for any future nomination? In the January of 1999, the U.S. House Select Committee on Intelligence published ... the “Cox Report” -- which found that China had stolen and still was stealing nuclear weapons secrets from the U.S. The committee reported that “the primary focus of this long-term,...

    Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern whose relationship with President Bill Clinton erupted into an impeachment scandal, weighed in on the differences between how the Robert Mueller report was handled compared with the Kenneth Starr report. She responded to a tweet from University of Southern California law professor Orin Kerr, who imagined what would have happened if the Starr 1998 report on Clinton’s conduct had only been given to then-Attorney General Janet Reno, who then read it and published a four-page “letter based on her private reading stating her conclusion that President Clinton committed no crimes.” “If. F—ing. Only,” Lewinsky...

    Ticket prices to see former President Bill Clinton and Hillary speak have gone as low as $7 in some locations– and the seats are still empty. Former President Bill Clinton and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton have been touring the U.S. and Canada for months, with dates stretching into mid-2019. Unfortunately for the Clintons, people seem to be quickly losing interest in entertaining their nostalgia and opinions on the current state of the nation.

    The snow is falling lightly. My thoughts are racing darkly. I’m feeling something foreign, something I’ve never felt before. It takes me a moment to identify it. I’m feeling sorry for the Clintons. In the 27 years I’ve covered Bill and Hillary, I’ve experienced a range of emotions. They’ve dazzled me and they’ve disgusted me. But now they’re mystifying me. I’m looking around Scotiabank Arena, the home of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and it’s a depressing sight. It’s two-for-the-price-of-one in half the arena. The hockey rink is half curtained off, but even with that, organizers are scrambling at the last...

    In the final part of the A&E docu-series "The Clinton Affair," Lewinsky revealed that Clinton convinced her to deny the affair if she was called to testify in the Paula Jones case. The 45-year-old recalled the former president telling her that she could avoid being deposed if she denied the affair in an affidavit. Lewinsky said that Clinton had called her at 2:30 in the morning to let her know that she was on the witness list for the Paula Jones case. ..." After being subpoenaed, the former White House staffer decided to talk to attorney Vernon Jordan, a close...

    A new documentary series offers an emotional look behind the mask of someone who has stood stoic in the public eye for decades. In the A&E series, "The Clinton Affair," Monica Lewinsky is more forthright than she's been in years about her relationship with former President Bill Clinton. In the A&E series, which premieres this Sunday, Lewinsky talks about the highs of her time at the White House. At one point she describes how she felt being called in by Clinton, "I don't think my heart had ever beat as fast." And the lowest of lows, when she was confronted...

    With "The Clinton Affair," Monica Lewinsky is ready to revisit the 1998 sex scandal that nearly unraveled Bill Clinton's presidency, and she hopes by doing so she can retire the term "Lewinsky scandal" once and for all. "I think 20 years is enough time to carry that mantle," the former White House intern, now 45, writes in a new Vanity Fair essay published Tuesday. In the essay, she explains what motivated her to take part in the 6 1/2-hour series, which premieres Sunday (9 EST/PST) from Emmy-winning producer Blair Foster ("Get Me Roger Stone," "Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind")...

    Monica Lewinsky is opening up for the first time in years about her relationship with former President Bill Clinton, though even decades later she feels “uncomfortable” discussing it. “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,” Lewinsky says in a preview clip released Tuesday for A&E’s “The Clinton Affair.” “But I think in one way, the moment we were actually in the back office for the first time, the truth is is that...

    Hillary Clinton is drawing a contrast between the sexual misconduct allegations against her husband, former President Clinton, and those leveled against President Trump. In an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, said the main difference between the allegations is that there was an investigation led by Republicans into the claims against her husband, while Clinton said there has been no serious investigation of Trump. "There's a very significant difference, and that is the intense, long-lasting, partisan investigation that was conducted in the '90s," Clinton said. "If the Republicans, starting with President Trump on down, want a comparison, they should welcome such...

    Chelsea Clinton says it was troubling how "nakedly partisan" Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was during his Senate testimony last week. During his opening statement before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Kavanaugh blamed Democrats for "a calculated and orchestrated political hit" against him fueled in part by "revenge on behalf of the Clintons." He spoke after Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault, was questioned by the committee. When the former first daughter heard this, she said she thought, "Oh, my gosh, we loom so much larger in your mind than you loom, at least in...

    Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern turned anti-bullying activist, gave an emotional speech in Jerusalem on Monday night before abruptly leaving at the start of an interview. Lewinsky addressed the Channel 2 news conference about her experiences in the wake of the revelations of her affair with then-US president Bill Clinton. Following her speech, Lewinsky sat down for a scheduled talk with news anchor Yonit Levi. Levi asked Lewinsky if she was still expecting a private apology from Clinton after all these years. Lewinsky simply answered: “I’m sorry, I’m not going to be able to do this,” and quickly walked...
