Bill Clinton Says He 'Does Not' Owe Monica Lewinsky An Apology

  • The Clinton family has slowly been returning to public life after Hillary Clinton's loss in 2016

While in office, Clinton was the subject of an investigation led by independent counsel Ken Starr and faced impeachment in connection with his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Asked on CBS Sunday Morning whether he agreed with New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand who has publicly stated that he should have resigned, Clinton said he believed impeachment would never have removed him from office.

"I felt bad then", Clinton said cutting Melvin off.

Former President Bill Clinton said in a interview that aired Monday he likes the #MeToo movement, but he still has some problems with it.

Following the interview, Lewinsky spoke out on Twitter, sharing her Vanity Fair essay and writing that she was "grateful to the myriad people who have helped me evolve + gain perspective in the past 20 years".

Clinton: "I have not talked to her".

"That's very different. The apology is public".

Former President Clinton and James Patterson were on the show to discuss their new book, "The President is Missing".

Despite being impeached on December 19, 1998 by the House of Representatives for perjury and obstruction of justice - he was later acquitted of the charges - Mr Clinton remained as president of the United States for another two years.

He added that Obama was a "good president" and disagreed with Trump's "assessment of his service".

Clinton also attempted to steer the criticism he is now facing to U.S. President Donald Trump.

"But you didn't apologize to her", Melvin said.

Clinton said that he likes the #metoo movement, calling it "way overdue", but adding he "doesn't agree with everything".

He said critics were "omitting facts" by comparing him to other men who have used their power to sexually harass women. "If the facts were the same today, I wouldn't [do anything differently]".

When pressed about why he hadn't reached out to Lewinsky personally, Clinton told NBC, "this was litigated 20 years ago. I left the White house $16 million in debt", he said.

Trump "hasn't gotten anything like the coverage that you would expect", Clinton said.

Melvin: "You've apologized to her?"

"I don't think there is a fancy way to say that I have sinned".

Despite his reluctance to address the nuances of his relationship with Lewinsky, Clinton says he "likes" and supports the #MeToo movement. "We're supposed to be able to say what the difference is between right and wrong".

"I now see how problematic it was that the two of us even got to a place where there was a question of consent", she continued.
