Bill Clinton: I dont owe Lewinsky an apology

"The suggestion was that I never apologized for what caused all the trouble for me 20 years ago", Clinton added. "Two-thirds of the American people sided with me".

When asked if, in light of the #MeToo movement, he thought his handling of the scandal had been correct, he said: "I think I did the right thing".

Republican strategist Steve Schmidt agreed that Clinton's evasions had essentially made President Donald Trump possible, but he said Monday's disastrous interview should be career ending for the former president.

"Well, I just disagree with her", Clinton told CBS on Sunday.

But then when Clinton was asked by by NBC whether he owed Lewinsky a direct apology, he said: "No, I do not". "The apology was public", said Clinton.

Appearing on TODAY and Sunday Morning over the past couple days to promote his novel co-written with James Patterson, Clinton seemed caught off guard when asked about the "inappropriate relationship" he admitted to with Monica Lewinsky who worked as a White House intern in the mid-90s.

Clinton, 71, was impeached by the House of Representatives in 1998 for perjury and obstruction of justice after admitting to a sex scandal with Lewinsky, but was acquitted by the Senate in 1999.

In his latest Tweet, Karius said: "Haven't really slept until now. the scenes are still running through my head again and again". Khedira recently told Bild : "I'm not thinking about my future right now, but one day I would like to win the Premier League".

Scarborough argued that Democrats still "desperately need" Bill Clinton, calling him a "brilliant tactician", but Brzezinski disagreed, claiming the party no longer needs Bill or Hillary Clinton.

Earlier this year, Ms Lewinsky wrote in Vanity Fairthat the affair "was not sexual assault" but "constituted a gross abuse of power". Because of her allegations, the #MeToo movement began and men in the industry began dropping like flies.

Elsewhere, Clinton reveals how he has never personally apologized to Lewinsky, believing that his public concessions were sufficient enough.

Rose McGowan - an actress who has become a vocal supporter of the #MeToo movement ever since the Harvey Weinstein case blew open - said on Monday that Bill Clinton should be ashamed of himself for what happened to Monica back in the 1990's.

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. "Do you think President Johnson should have resigned? All he needed to say in the interview is 'I am profoundly and deeply sorry'".

As for Gillibrand's remarks, Clinton said, "She's living in a different context".

In an interview with NBC's Today Show, he said he supported the movement and it was "way overdue" but he still believed he acted correctly.
