I feel for Monica Lewinsky.
She was in her VERY early 20’s when the Clinton affair all went down. She was young, and naive, and impressionable – and the most powerful, most charismatic man in the WORLD wanted HER.
Now the same people who think all women are victims of patriarchy, and all men are intrinsically evil, will outright call Monica a hoe and a seductress. I recently read a tweet claiming HILLARY CLINTON was the only “victim” of the Lewinsky affair.
GIVE ME A BREAK.
If Hillary Clinton gave a DAMN who Bill sleeps with, they’d have gotten divorced DECADES ago. If anything, the affair gave Hillary some of her most likable moments. People felt she was a human FOR ONCE. And she milked every last second of it.
Anyway… Monica Lewinsky has recently opened up about the entire thing for the A&E docuseries “The Clinton Affair” …and she’s now revealing that Bill pressured her to lie under oath.
According to Fox News:
In the final part of the A&E docuseries “The Clinton Affair,” Lewinsky revealed that Clinton convinced her to deny the affair if she was called to testify in the Paula Jones case. The 45-year-old recalled the former president telling her that she could avoid being deposed if she denied the affair in an affidavit.
Lewinsky said that Clinton had called her at 2:30 in the morning to let her know that she was on the witness list for the Paula Jones case.
“I was petrified. I was frantic about my family and this becoming public,” Lewinsky tearfully recalled. “Thankfully, Bill helped me lock myself back from that and he said I could probably sign an affidavit to get out of it, and he didn’t even know if a 100 percent I would be subpoenaed.”
She was subpoenaed a few days later.
And though she clarified that Clinton never said the words “you’re going to have to lie here,” Lewinsky pointed out that he also never said “we’re going to have to tell the truth.”
So. Freaking. GROSS.
I’d like to point out that the same people who act like the Clintons are a gift from GOD complain about Donald Trump being a “liar.”
HAHAHAHA. That’s rich.
Once it was discovered that Lewinsky was having an affair with Clinton, the FBI forced the young staffer to be part of the bureau investigation into the president.
Scared and unsure what to do, the activist recalled how the FBI threatened to prosecute her mother and said that both women could face up to 27 years in prison for lying about the affair.
A then-24-year-old Lewinsky demanded to call her mother while she was being held inside a Ritz Carlton hotel room for what was a 12-hour interrogation.
“You’re 24, you don’t need to call your mommy, you need to make a decision about what to do,” Lewinsky recalled one agent told her.
Unwilling to immediately cooperate with the FBI, the young staffer finally told them that she demanded to speak to either her mother or her lawyer before making the decision to wear a wire and have her personal life monitored and tapped.
Can you even IMAGINE THE PRESSURE?!
I certainly can’t.
But once the word of the affair was out in the open, Lewinsky admitted that the scandal was almost too much for her to handle and revealed that she contemplated committing suicide.
“There was a point for me somewhere within these first several hours where I would be hysterically crying and then I would just shut down,” she admitted. “And in the shutdown period, I just remember looking out the window and thinking the only way to fix this is to kill myself.”
But yeah… she’s just an EVIL JEZEBEL and Hillary Clinton is the ONLY VICTIM.
Oh, and Bill Clinton is still the Dem’s cool buddy.
