Hillary Clinton: Bill's affair with Monica Lewinsky wasn't abuse of power

Pour Hillary Clinton l'affaire Lewinsky ne relevait pas de l'abus de pouvoir Hillary Clinton Says Bill Should ‘Absolutely Not’ Have Resigned Over Lewinsky Scandal

Hillary Clinton says her husband's affair with Monica Lewinsky when she was a White House intern wasn't an abuse of power because the 22-year-old "was an adult" at the time.

When asked if her husband should have stepped down, Hillary responded: "Absolutely not".

In an interview with CBS on Sunday morning, Clinton defended her husband and said "absolutely not" in response to a question about whether he should have resigned after his affair with Lewinski came to light more than 20 years ago.

Lewinsky, who was an intern at the White House at the time, called it a "gross abuse of power" in March 2018.

Bill Clinton lied about and then admitted to having an affair with a White House intern, almost three decades his junior, while he was USA president.

Clinton: No role. I take responsibility for my life and my actions.

Clinton was referring to multiple allegations of sexual assault and harassment leveled against President Donald Trump, which Trump has denied. Clinton asked. "So there was an investigation and it, as I believe, came out in the right place".

The hit-by-pitches, actually Joe (Kelly), the 1-2 to (Alex) Bregman was a close pitch and we have to get him off the plate. This time he fumbled a grounder in the sixth inning and that opened the door for Carlos Correa's RBI single off Joe Kelly.

But Clinton points to her "adulthood", and the fact that there was a comprehensive investigation as some sort of proof that Lewinsky-a young woman fresh out of college, in her first job, who was courted into a sexual relationship with a man who was decades her senior, married, and the president of the United States-was treated fairly, that she was somehow an equal player in all of this.

"... who was an adult", Hillary said.

The interviewer said to Hillary, "There are people who look at the incidents of the '90s and they say, 'A president of the United States can not have a consensual relationship with an intern - the power imbalance is too great'".

The Clintons are scheduled for a joint speaking tour, and are out on the media circuit promoting it.

Live Nation Entertainment describes the Clinton events as "joint on-stage conversations with the two leaders sharing stories and inspiring anecdotes that shaped their historic careers in public service, while also discussing issues of the day and looking toward the future".
