    CBS "News" ^ | November 14, 2018
    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...

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...

Lewinsky sat for the start of an interview at the Jerusalem Convention Center when Channel 2 news anchor Yonit Levi brought up Clinton's comments from June when he said he didn't believe he owed Lewinsky an apology. “Do you still expect that apology? A personal apology?" Levi asked Lewinsky on Monday. “I’m sorry, I’m not going to be able to do this,” Lewinsky responded, before putting down her microphone and walking off stage....

    Earlier today Bob Loblaw tweeted something that I'd completely overlooked: Today is the "future" dateline referenced in the @MarkSteynOnline column "Monica's Dress" where the dress (now a pair of curtains in Idaho) reflects back 20 years to its heyday leading up to the 1998 Bill Clinton impeachment trial. That's true, it is: August 22nd 2018. Exactly twenty years ago, on August 22nd 1998, the Year of Impeachment, I wrote a column for The Daily Telegraph in London imagining an exclusive interview with the once famous dress two decades on: August 22nd 2018 She is older now, her once dazzling looks...

    Bill Clinton: Lewinsky Paid ‘Quite a Price’ for Affair BY: Conor Beck Follow @cb0321 June 8, 2018 12:34 pm Former President Bill Clinton said Thursday that former White House intern Monica Lewinsky "paid quite a price" for the affair that roiled his presidency. PBS's Judy Woodruff followed up on widely criticized comments Clinton made Monday and asked the former president how he thought the scandal impacted Lewinsky. "You paid a price. Do you think Ms. Lewinsky paid a higher price, a harder price?" Woodruff asked. "Oh, I don’t know. I think she paid quite a price. But the price that...

    Tipper Gore was more enraged about Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky than even Hillary Clinton, according to a new book. “Tipper Gore was furious at Bill Clinton, angrier than Hillary Clinton was,” author Kate Andersen Brower told The Post. Her new book, “First in Line: Presidents, Vice Presidents and the Pursuit of Power,” comes out Tuesday. With Lewinsky being the same age as the Gores’ eldest daughter, Karenna, Tipper “felt personally offended by the scandal,” said ex-Gore aide Jamal Simmons. The White House intern was 22 when the affair with Bill Clinton began. “In Gore’s case there’s no way...

    FULL TITLE: "Al Gore blamed Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky for costing him the presidency – but power-mad Hillary had already torn apart the president and the VP" Al Gore never forgave Bill Clinton for 'betraying' him over the Monica Lewinsky scandal and costing him the 2000 election, a new book reveals. A new book claims that Gore felt Clinton's 'impeachment cast a permanent shadow on their joint accomplishments' and ruined his chance of succeeding him as president. Gore's camp thought that Clinton 'did not want Gore to succeed' against George W Bush after he was impeached following his...

    Clinton came under fire early Monday after a testy exchange with an interviewer about whether or not he should have privately apologized to Lewinsky. During an evening event later that day, Clinton revisited the conversation and defended the public apology he gave in September 1998. "The hubub was I got hot under the collar because of the way the questions were asked," Clinton said Monday night, referencing his interview on NBC's Today Show earlier that day. "I think what was lost were the two points that I made, that are important to me: the suggestion was that I never apologized...

    Former President Bill Clinton says that, even in light of the #MeToo movement, he would not have approached how he dealt with Monica Lewinsky any differently and acknowledged that — 20 years after their relationship made headlines — he’s still never apologized privately to the former intern. "I don't think it would be an issue," the ex-president told NBC News' Craig Melvin in an interview that aired Monday on the "Today" show, after he was asked if he would have "approached the accusations differently" if he were president in 2018 "with everything that’s going on with the #MeToo movement." "Because...

    Former President Bill Clinton insisted in a weekend interview that he doesn't owe a personal apology to Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern whose adult life has been defined by their inappropriate sexual affair and the global scrutiny that followed. 'No,' he told NBC in an interview airing Monday on the 'Today' show. 'I do not – I have never talked to her. But I did say publicly on more than one occasion that I was sorry.' 'I apologized to everybody in the world,' Clinton said, implying that was enough. And the flustered former president, more famous for his...
