    Linda Tripp, whose secret conversations with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton in 1998, is seriously ill and near death, according to a Facebook posting by her daughter. “My mommy is leaving this earth. I don’t know myself if I can survive this heartache. Please pray for a painless process for the strongest woman I will ever know in my entire lifetime,” Allison Tripp Foley posted on Facebook late Tuesday, adding that she was at her 70-year-old mother’s bedside. Her profile was later made private. Tripp’s son-in-law, Thomas Foley, told The Post...

    Bill Clinton claims that his affair with Monica Lewinsky was one of the 'things I did to manage my anxieties'. The former President suggests, in an explosive documentary seen by DailyMailTV, that he had the fling with the ex-White House intern while he was in office because it helped with his own issues. Bill reveals that at the time he met Lewinsky the pressure of the job made him feel like a boxer who had done 30 rounds and he looked at Lewinsky as 'something that will take your mind off it for a while'.

    He’s never heard of Prozac? Bill Clinton waves off his tawdry affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky in a new documentary — by saying it was something he did “to manage my anxiety.” The ex-president, in the upcoming Hulu series “Hillary” about his wife, likens working in the Oval Office to being a boxer “staggering” around after a 15-round prize fight that’s been extended to 30-rounds. “And here’s something that’ll take your mind off it for a while,” Clinton, 73, says of his two-year tryst with Lewinsky that began in 1995 when she was 22. “Everybody’s life has pressures...

    PARK CITY, Utah - - Since losing the 2016 election to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has released a memoir about that defeat, launched a political action committee and penned another book about “gutsy women” with her daughter, Chelsea. But Clinton’s most prominent return to the public eye has come in the form of a new candid four-hour documentary series. Some, Clinton is aware, thought she would slink away after 2016. “Yes, they did, didn’t they?”says Clinton. “Well, that was never an option.” Nanette Burstein’s “Hillary,” which Hulu will debut Friday, is a more direct and long-form portrait of Clinton than...

    Hillary Clinton and Monica Lewinsky found common ground Tuesday over the conviction of rapist Harvey Weinstein. “I think the jury’s decision speaks for itself. It was time for an accounting, and the jury clearly found that,” said the former first lady, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Clinton — whose hubby, President Bill Clinton, had an affair with White House intern Lewinsky in the 1990s — was at the Berlin Film Festival promoting her new Hulu documentary when she also was asked about Weinstein’s support for her 2016 presidential run. Clinton replied that the now-disgraced mogul “supported every Democratic campaign” including...

    Monica Lewinsky responded with some choice words Friday to the news that Ken Starr will join President Trump’s impeachment defense team — tweeting, “Are you f—king kidding me?” The famously scandal-scarred former White House intern — whose affair with President Bill Clinton was exposed by Starr, leading to Clinton’s impeachment in 1998 — appeared to be flabbergasted. “this is definitely an ‘are you f—ing kidding me?’ kinda day,” she tweeted shortly after hearing that Starr will team up with Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz to defend Trump.

    Hillary Clinton said that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is being groomed by Moscow to run as a third-party spoiler candidate in 2020 to help President Trump win reelection. The former secretary of state pushed the theory on the Campaign HQ podcast hosted by David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s campaign manager in 2008. Plouffe and Clinton discussed hurdles the Democratic nominee would face and compared the 2020 race to Clinton’s loss to Trump in 2016. Plouffe asked Clinton about the part third-party candidates, such as Jill Stein of the Green Party, played in 2016, allowing Trump to secure key states. "They are...

    Monica Lewinsky says she's looking for a job. No longer shying away from the spotlight, two decades after her reputation was destroyed in the Clinton impeachment scandal, Lewinsky spoke to NBC's Savannah Guthrie Wednesday in an interview tied to National Bullying Prevention Month. Lewinsky, 46, told Guthrie she's looking for a "proper career" and would like to continue her work as a storyteller.(snip) While running for president in 2016, Hillary Clinton -- who famously stood by her husband during the scandal -- said he should not have resigned after the scandal with Lewinsky, whom she called an "adult."

    A made-for-TV drama about the Clinton-Lewinsky sex scandal couldn’t debut at a worse possible time for Democrats — just weeks before the 2020 presidential election. FX has announced that “American Crime Story: Impeachment” will chronicle former President Bill Clinton’s encounter with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky and the impeachment proceedings that followed. The release date, Sept. 27, 2020 — could be a political pain for Democrats. Election Day is on Nov. 3. “Timing is everything and the timing they chose couldn’t be worse for the Democrats,” said political consultant Hank Sheinkopf, whose clients have included Clinton and former Mayor Mike...

    New Mexico Democratic Gov. Bill Richardson will go before the U.S. Senate in coming weeks as Barack Obama’s nominee for secretary of Commerce. Will Democrats in that chamber remember his performance in 1999 and 2000 as Energy secretary, when secrets disappeared from nuclear laboratories, and one Democratic senator promised to oppose Richardson for any future nomination? In the January of 1999, the U.S. House Select Committee on Intelligence published ... the “Cox Report” -- which found that China had stolen and still was stealing nuclear weapons secrets from the U.S. The committee reported that “the primary focus of this long-term,...

    Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern whose relationship with President Bill Clinton erupted into an impeachment scandal, weighed in on the differences between how the Robert Mueller report was handled compared with the Kenneth Starr report. She responded to a tweet from University of Southern California law professor Orin Kerr, who imagined what would have happened if the Starr 1998 report on Clinton’s conduct had only been given to then-Attorney General Janet Reno, who then read it and published a four-page “letter based on her private reading stating her conclusion that President Clinton committed no crimes.” “If. F—ing. Only,” Lewinsky...

    Ticket prices to see former President Bill Clinton and Hillary speak have gone as low as $7 in some locations– and the seats are still empty. Former President Bill Clinton and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton have been touring the U.S. and Canada for months, with dates stretching into mid-2019. Unfortunately for the Clintons, people seem to be quickly losing interest in entertaining their nostalgia and opinions on the current state of the nation.

    The snow is falling lightly. My thoughts are racing darkly. I’m feeling something foreign, something I’ve never felt before. It takes me a moment to identify it. I’m feeling sorry for the Clintons. In the 27 years I’ve covered Bill and Hillary, I’ve experienced a range of emotions. They’ve dazzled me and they’ve disgusted me. But now they’re mystifying me. I’m looking around Scotiabank Arena, the home of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and it’s a depressing sight. It’s two-for-the-price-of-one in half the arena. The hockey rink is half curtained off, but even with that, organizers are scrambling at the last...

    In the final part of the A&E docu-series "The Clinton Affair," Lewinsky revealed that Clinton convinced her to deny the affair if she was called to testify in the Paula Jones case.

    A new documentary series offers an emotional look behind the mask of someone who has stood stoic in the public eye for decades. In the A&E series, "The Clinton Affair," Monica Lewinsky is more forthright than she's been in years about her relationship with former President Bill Clinton. In the A&E series, which premieres this Sunday, Lewinsky talks about the highs of her time at the White House. At one point she describes how she felt being called in by Clinton, "I don't think my heart had ever beat as fast." And the lowest of lows, when she was confronted...

    With "The Clinton Affair," Monica Lewinsky is ready to revisit the 1998 sex scandal that nearly unraveled Bill Clinton's presidency, and she hopes by doing so she can retire the term "Lewinsky scandal" once and for all. "I think 20 years is enough time to carry that mantle," the former White House intern, now 45, writes in a new Vanity Fair essay published Tuesday. In the essay, she explains what motivated her to take part in the 6 1/2-hour series, which premieres Sunday (9 EST/PST) from Emmy-winning producer Blair Foster ("Get Me Roger Stone," "Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind")...
