Clinton defends response to Lewinsky questions: 'I got hot under the collar'

President Clinton wouldn't say if he believed the results of the 2016 election which President Trump won were tampered with

In 1998, Clinton confessed at the National Prayer Breakfast and delivered a joint apology to wife Hillary, the American people, and to Lewinsky and her family. "I defended the Constitution", he said of his decision to fight impeachment.

Former President Bill Clinton tried to clarify his comments about the Monica Lewinsky scandal at a speaking event Monday evening. When asked if he thought he owed her an apology, he said, "No, I do not".

"What you saw there, I think, is the end of Bill Clinton's life as a public figure in this country", GOP strategist Steve Schmidt said on "Morning Joe". "That's very different - the apology was public".

The affair led to Mr Clinton being impeached by the House of Representatives in 1999. But after a 21-day trial, he was acquitted by the Senate of charges relating to the affair.

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.

Clinton also asked Melvin if he would have called for former presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson to resign, presumably because of alleged extra-marital affairs while in office. "He was 27 years my senior, with enough life experience to know better", she wrote.

Chelsea Clinton's father noted that he does not plan on apologizing to Monica privately.

Instead, he went with a very last-minute option that included the phrase "I hate being Bi-Polar its awesome" in neon green. The rapper showcased his new material at an invite-only party in Wyoming on Thursday night, where he'd been recording.

Bill Clinton is pushing back against re-evaluations of his actions during the Monica Lewinsky scandal in light of the #MeToo movement.

He accused Melvin on "omitting facts" about the case, and seemed to resent being associated with the other men taken down by the movement.

Clinton's incoherent response is pretty much typical of the left's indefensible explanations for why the 42nd president got a pass then and is still getting one today. He said that President Trump's sexual misconduct allegations have not "gotten anything like the coverage you would expect". "I left the White House $16 million in debt", he added.

In fact, the former president suggested, #MeToo-era feminists are only lumping him in with power-abusing Harvey Weinstein types out of displaced anger at Donald Trump. "You asked me if I agreed, the answer is, no I don't".

Melvin: "You've apologized to her?"

"The second is, that I support the "Me Too" movement, and I think it's long overdue", he added.

"Nobody believes that I got out of that for free".

"I don't think there is a fancy way to say that I have sinned".
