Hillary Clinton: Bill Did Not Abuse His Power in Lewinsky Affair

Share

Because Bill Clinton didn't come clean, Monica Lewinsky was hauled into a hotel in Pentagon City, threatened with jail time, her parents were threatened with jail time.

But the investigation into her husband's potential perjury and obstruction of justice have nothing to do with the mistreatment of Monica Lewinsky, who has since been diagnosed with PTSD stemming from the events of the 90s.

Clinton said Lewinsky was an adult when she was entangled in a sex scandal with her husband and defended his by saying he was "absolutely not" abusing his power 20 years ago when the affair took flight.

Mr Clinton was 49 at the time.

She is, of course, referring to the number of sexual assault allegations made against President Donald Trump - clearly a relevant point, but still a deflective and unsatisfying answer. We weren't talking about how Clinton came through that impeachment at the expense of Monica Lewinsky, whose character was smeared and whose name was turned into a punchline.

Hillary said that her husband's affair with Lewinsky was not an "abuse of power," though Lewinsky herself has said in the past that she believes it was.

Despite the surge of candidates, Mrs Clinton said sexism is still front and centre in politics.

Although the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee noted that Lewinsky was an adult, the potential for sexual abuse and harassment exists even if someone is over the age of 18, said Laura Palumbo, director of communications for the National Sexual Violence Resource Center.

"He didn't do that to the men", Mrs Clinton said.
