Bill Clinton Says He Never Apologized to Monica Lewinsky in Person

Bill Clinton is under fire for some comments made during an interview on NBC’s Today show.

Part of the discussion was centered around the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and how Clinton stayed in the White House after the controversy.

“A lot of the facts have been conveniently omitted to make the story work, I think partly because they’re frustrated that they got all these serious allegations against the current occupant of the Oval Office and his voters don’t seem to care,” Clinton said, referring to allegations made against Donald Trump. “I think I did the right thing [by staying in office]. I defended the Constitution.”

When asked if he owed Monica an apology, he said, “No, I do not — I have never talked to her. But I did say publicly on more than one occasion that I was sorry. That’s very different. The apology was public.”

He then added that he doesn’t think the #MeToo movement would have changed his response at all.

“I don’t think it would be an issue because people would be using the facts instead of the imagined facts,” he said.

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

Monica Lewinsky Speaks Out About #MeToo & the Time's Up Movement in Personal Essay

In the age of #MeToo and Time’s Up, Monica Lewinsky is once again reflecting on her infamous scandal with former President Bill Clinton while working as a White House intern.

“As I find myself reflecting on what happened, I’ve also come to understand how my trauma has been, in a way, a microcosm of a larger, national one. Both clinically and observationally, something fundamental changed in our society in 1998, and it is changing again as we enter the second year of the Trump presidency in a post-Cosby-Ailes-O’Reilly-Weinstein-Spacey-Whoever-Is-Next world,” the 44-year-old social activist writes in a new essay for Vanity Fair‘s March 2018 issue, hitting newsstands on March 6.

“Given my PTSD and my understanding of trauma, it’s very likely that my thinking would not necessarily be changing at this time had it not been for the #MeToo movement—not only because of the new lens it has provided but also because of how it has offered new avenues toward the safety that comes from solidarity.”

“I now see how problematic it was that the two of us even got to a place where there was a question of consent. Instead, the road that led there was littered with inappropriate abuse of authority, station, and privilege.”

She also explains that one of the women leading the #MeToo movement reached out to her personally and wrote: “I’m so sorry you were so alone.”

“Somehow, coming from her—a recognition of sorts on a deep, soulful level—they landed in a way that cracked me open and brought me to tears.”
