Bill Clinton Says He “Felt Terrible” About What Happened With Monica Lewinksy
This week, Bill Clinton is going on a book tour with James Patterson about their book The President Is Missing. And naturally, it’s been bombarded by #MeToo questions.
“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 said in an interview with Today about Monica Lewisnky.
Bill was impeached in 1998 after admitting to being sexually involved with Monica, who was 22. He said at the time, “It is important to me that everyone who has been hurt know that the sorrow I feel is genuine. First and most important, my family [and] Monica Lewinsky.”
When asked if he felt differently about his actions in the wake of the #MeToo movement, he replied: “No. I felt terrible then, and I came to grips with it.”
