Hillary Says Bill's White House Affair Was Not an 'Abuse of Power'

Hillary Says Bill's White House Affair Was Not an 'Abuse of Power'”

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton rejected Sunday the suggestion that her husband's relationship with Monica Lewinsky was an abuse of power, noting that the intern "was an adult".

"No", she told "CBS Sunday Morning" in an interview with Tony Dokoupil.

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.

"Now, at 44, I'm beginning (just beginning) to consider the implications of the power differentials that were so vast between a president and a White House intern", she wrote. She was then asked whether the relationship was an "abuse of power", to which she said, "No". Lewinsky "was an adult", Clinton said, continuing: "But let me ask you this: Where's the investigation of the current incumbent against whom numerous allegations have been made?". "It bothers me that she tries to be this speaker and embody this person that's empowering women, when all these years you had women that came out and were telling their story about the way they were treated with Clinton".

The Clintons are about to embark on a joint speaking tour that could prompt questions about what the Clintons went through, Bill's 1998 impeachment and allegations of sexual harassment.

Clinton's remarks came after she wouldn't compare her husband's actions with Lewinsky with the accusations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Several women have accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault, including Juanita Broadderick, who has alleged he raped her in a hotel room in 1978 when he was Arkansas attorney general. Broaddrick, whose case was never litigated, has started an online petition to "Order a federal investigation into sex crimes committed by Bill Clinton", which is still 65,000 signatures short of the 100,000 it needs to get to the White House. But these are conversations we're having now, and it's entirely disappointing to see Clinton be so unwilling to catch up.
