    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...

    Washington Examiner ^ | March 27, 2018
    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.

    I'd like to see the same care given to Bill Clinton's MANY victims and Obama's Guy Flings as has been given to Smokey Baby. Obviously they are interested in getting the Truth out, no?? 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.
  • With #MeToo, Monica Lewinsky now sees Bill Clinton’s ‘gross abuse of power’

    East Bay Times ^ | 2/26/2018 | Martha Ross
    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...

Howell of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia granted the order Monday in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from CNN. According to the...

    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...

    It was far from the most egregious case of workplace sexual misconduct in American history. But it was unusually high-profile, the facts were not in dispute, the perpetrator had a lot of nominal feminist ideological commitments, and political leaders who shared those commitments had the power to force him from office. Had he resigned in shame, we all might have made a collective cultural and political decision that a person caught leveraging power over women in inappropriate ways ought to be fired. Instead, we lost nearly two decades.

    Following multiple sexual misconduct allegations made against high-profile politicians like Roy Moore and Al Franken, former top advisers to President Obama and the Clintons have voiced their support for Monica Lewinsky. During an interview with MSNBC, Jennifer Palmieri — the communications director for Hillary Clinton who also worked for Bill Clinton‘s administration — said that she was sorry for everything Lewinsky had gone through. “Monica Lewinsky was my intern and the relationship the president had with her was very inappropriate,” she said. “It was a consensual relationship, but he was the President of the United States and she was a...

    New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a long-time political ally of Bill and Hillary Clinton, said Thursday the former president should have resigned after his affair with intern Monica Lewinsky was disclosed, according to a report. Asked if the 42nd president needed to step down nearly 20 years ago, Gillibrand told the New York Times: “Yes, I think that is the appropriate response.”

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who holds the seat formerly occupied by Hillary Clinton, said today that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency after his inappropriate relationship with Monica Lewinsky came to light. That’s mighty enlightened of her. But what took her so long to reach, or articulate, this view? The answer is, it took the fall of Clintons plus a crucial Senate race in which the Republican is being accused of serious sexual misconduct. We know that Gillibrand would never have called out Bill Clinton if he still wielded influence. We know this because she didn’t when he did. To...

    Remember When 115 Newspapers Called on Bill Clinton to Resign? By Michael Walsh November 11, 2017 Amidst the flap over Roy Moore in Alabama, this trip down memory lane: Jane R. Eisner, the editorial page editor of The Philadelphia Inquirer, knew the jagged contours of the debate before it started. Long before the release of Kenneth W. Starr's report, it was clear that some colleagues believed, passionately, that President Clinton's deceit made him unfit to remain in office. An equal number felt just as passionately that his resignation now would weaken the nation's most cherished institutions. But Ms. Eisner said...

    Joe Lockhart, the NFL’s executive vice president of communications, wasn’t messing around Monday. A former White House press secretary under President Clinton, Lockhart used surgical precision in leveling a shot at President Trump, tying Sunday’s nationwide protests by players, owners and coaches to Trump’s infamous “Access Hollywood” recording from his days as a TV star in 2005. “Everyone should know, including the president, this is what real locker room talk is,” Lockhart said in a conference call with reporters. Lockhart’s comment shows that sports and politics in the Trump era aren’t going to be untangled anytime soon and, frankly, that’s...

    (CNN) — Hillary Clinton casts Bernie Sanders as an unrealistic over-promiser in her new book, according to excerpts posted by a group of Clinton supporters. She said that his attacks against her during the primary caused "lasting damage" and paved the way for "(Donald) Trump's 'Crooked Hillary' campaign." Clinton, in a book that will be released September 12 entitled "What Happened," said Sanders "had to resort to innuendo and impugning my character" because the two Democrats "agreed on so much." The excerpts represent a small number of the roughly 500-page book in which Clinton reflects on her stunning loss to...

    Hillary Clinton is finally opening up about the “dark days” of her marriage to Bill, nearly 20 years after the Monica Lewinsky scandal. According to Radar Online, Hill writes, “We’ve certainly had dark days in our marriage,” in her memoir “What Happened,” out Sept. 12. “There were times I was deeply unsure about whether our marriage could or should survive.” She doesn’t mention Lewinsky by name, but she adds of the “dark days”: “You know all about them.” Hillary also writes that she decided to stay with the philandering former president because she still loved him. They have now been...

    Monica Lewinsky is blaming Roger Ailes — and to a lesser extent, Matt Drudge — for exploiting her relationship with President Bill Clinton so "mercilessly" that she considered suicide. "Ailes, a former Republican political operative, took the story and the trial that followed and made certain his anchors hammered it ceaselessly," Lewinsky writes in a New York Times opinion piece published Monday. "My family and I huddled at home, worried about my going to jail — I was the original target of Ken Starr's investigation, threatened with 27 years for having been accused of signing a false affidavit, obstructing justice,...
