Bill Clinton Angrily Defends Himself as He's Questioned About Monica Lewinsky Scandal

Mr Clinton, a newcomer to novel writing whose previous books include the million-selling autobiography My Life, didn't need a lot of research to tell readers what it's like to sit inside the White House Situation Room or to be briefed on a possible terrorist attack, or to imagine slipping away entirely.

In an apparent response to the "Today" interview, Lewinsky tweeted Monday that she is "grateful to the myriad people who have helped me evolve + gain perspective in the past 20 years".

Asked during the "Today" interview whether he regrets fighting impeachment rather than resigning, Clinton said, "I think I did the right thing".

When asked whether he has apologized to Lewinsky, Clinton said no. "He was, at the time, at the pinnacle of his career, while I was in my first job out of college", she wrote.

Clinton: "I have not talked to her".

At the same time, the former Democratic president claimed credit for empowering women in his orbit and disputed that he might owe Lewinsky a private apology, insisting his public televised apology was adequate.

Clinton appeared on the Today show with novelist James Patterson, his co-author on a new thriller titled, The President is Missing.

The House Republicans' move against Mr Clinton in 1998 made him only the second U.S. president to have been impeached.

Similarly, it emerged last August that Warner Bros is also developing a Joker origin story without Leto. The news of Leto's Joker movie going forward all-but-confirms the strategy.

The next year, however, the Senate acquitted him.

In February, Lewinsky penned an essay for Vanity Fair, describing her sexual relations with Clinton as full of "inappropriate abuse of authority, station, and privilege".

Do U think Clinton owes Lewinsky a personal apology?

Melvin made a decision to bring up the #MeToo movement that has gained traction in the recent months following the explosive admissions and allegations aimed squarely at Harvey Weinstein. Before a panel of ministers in the White House, which was widely reported, so I was, I did that.

"I still have some questions about some of the decisions which have been made", he said.

"And nobody believes that I got out of that for free". "Because of that interview, I don't think he's campaigning anywhere ever again unless he can clean it up and fix it pretty quickly". He was 27 year my senior, with enough life experience to know better. "It's way overdue. It doesn't mean I agree with everything".

Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones, three of the women who have accused Clinton of sexual harassment, said in November that they felt newly vindicated.

John Podhoretz brought up a speech Clinton gave in September 1998 in which the then-President said, "I don't think there's a fancy way to say that I have sinned". But from what I can tell of what was released, he was never pressed on that particular point.
