Bill Clinton says he doesn't owe Monica Lewinsky an apology

When asked if he had ever apologized to the former intern, Clinton admitted he never spoke to her privately, but maintained he apologized to her publicly when he "apologized to everybody in the world" about the decades old drama.

"Hillary Clinton was not in the position to condemn that or say anything about it because she lives with the history", Fouhy said.

When asked if he would have resigned over the affair, Clinton said he wouldn't.

The former president also defended his record on women, "I had a sexual harassment policy when I was governor in the '80s". Later, Clinton asked Melvin if he thought John F. Kennedy should have resigned and accused the reporter of presenting a biased picture of him.

Clinton also maintained that in the aftermath of the high-profile sexual misconduct allegations that toppled Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby, his scandal wouldn't have transpired differently in 2018, "because people would be using the facts instead of the imagined facts".

The 42nd president added that he "felt terrible" during the fallout from his relationship with Lewinsky, who's now 44, but he "came to grips with it".

Despite an underwhelming display from the Manchester United midfielder, Griezmann quickly sprang to his teammate's defence. It's not just for him, at one point we kept the ball and they whistled too. "It could have been a bigger scoreline".

Donald Trump is one of the most unpopular men in the United States of America today, or at least one of the most talked about. "That's very different. The apology was public". And while he said he supports the #MeToo movement, "I still have questions about some of the decisions which have been made".

"Nobody believes that I got out of that for free", he said. Anything and everything Clinton had accomplished was blotted out by the affair, the president's denial before confessing, and the impeachment that followed.

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton says he wouldn't have handled the events following his affair with Monica Lewinsky differently today. I have had nothing but women leaders in my office since I left.

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 March, Lewinsky wrote an essay for Vanity Fair which revealed she had suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder due to the public shaming she received.
