    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...

    In a new interview set to air this weekend on CBS Sunday Morning, former President Bill Clinton will respond for the first time to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-NY) assertion that he should have resigned over the Lewinsky affair. “You have to—really ignore what the context was,” Clinton says, according to a CBS transcript. “But, you know, she’s living in a different context. And she did it for different reasons. So, I—but I just disagree with her."

    Former President Bill Clinton waved off Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's (D-N.Y.) assertion that he should have stepped down after his inappropriate relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky went public. In an interview on "CBS Sunday Morning" set to air this week, Clinton said Gillibrand's comment, which appeared in an interview with The New York Times last year, did not take into account the "context" of his decision to stay in office. "You have to really ignore what the context was," Clinton told CBS's Mo Rocca. "But, you know, she’s living in a different context. And she did it for different...

    Monica Lewinsky was invited to a Town & Country magazine event — then uninvited after former President Bill Clinton joined the lineup. She was bumped from the lifestyle mag’s annual Philanthropy Summit Wednesday after Clinton came on board to introduce teen gun control activist Emma Gonzalez, the Huffington Post reports. Lewinsky denounced the diss in a tweet — but didn’t call out the Hearst-owned magazine by name. “dear world: please don’t invite me to an event (esp one about social change) and –then after i’ve accepted– uninvite me because bill clinton then decided to attend/was invited.

    TIME ^ | May 4, 2018 | By OLIVIA B. WAXMAN and MERRILL FABRY
    In June 1995, Monica Lewinsky’s move to Washington, D.C., was unremarkable. She was a 21-year-old recent college grad with an unpaid internship in the office of President Bill Clinton’s Chief of Staff Leon Panetta, landed with the help of a family connection. But, as the nation later learned, things happened quickly from that point, as it was that year that she began a relationship with the President that would last about two years and lead to an epoch-shaping scandal. The relationship between Lewinsky and President Clinton came to light 20 years ago, and the fallout would dominate 1998’s news. And...

    Former White House intern Monica Lewinsky is calling for a “cultural revolution” in how people consume online news so that “more shame" no longer means “more clicks” and more advertising income. Lewinsky told hundreds of privacy professionals Tuesday “we need to communicate online with compassion, consume news with compassion, and click with compassion." "Just imagine walking a mile in someone else’s headline," she said in a Washington speech that was contractually closed to the press.

Maybe the National Enquirer could handle the interviews, since all of this belongs there AND they seem to be the only ones capable of finding the Truth in a haystack.

    For nearly 20 years, Monica Lewinsky said she accepted the idea that she was an equal, willing partner in her Oval Office affair with President Bill Clinton and that any “abuse” came in the political storm that followed when she was made “a scapegoat” to protect him and his presidency. But she says that her perspective has changed in recent months, as she writes in a new essay in Vanity Fair. That’s because of the #MeToo movement, which she and others point out has exposed the sometimes complicated ways in which powerful men are able to sexually prey on those...

    This April, Harper will publish Chasing Hillary, a new political memoir from New York Times writer-at-large Amy Chozick, EW can confirm exclusively. The book will provide a remarkably intimate and deeply personal portrait of Hillary Clinton as she withstood two dramatic losses for the presidency. Chozick’s book is the result of a decade’s worth of reporting on the former U.S. Secretary of State. Chozick’s front-row seat to Clinton’s presidential campaign implosion in 2008 led to her getting assigned the “Hillary Beat” through to 2016, when she’d once again face a painful defeat, this time in the general election to Donald...

    On Drudge Now: Retrospective, Remember When Monica Lewinsky Blamed Bill Clinton Instead of Matt Drudge? The Internet Does.In Lewinsky's warped (or calculated) view of her time in the limelight, she was the world's first victim of "cyberbullying" and Drudge the first perpetrator. Thought Reform, as the Chinese call it--I don't know what the jargon was used by brainwashing technicians in the Stalinist Show Trials--has so long pervaded public discourse, that it's as natural as breathing air. Monica's grief-resolution is typical, helpless victims can't ultimately blame the winners, The Clintons, so they blame the troublemaker who originally highlighted the putrid pustulent...
