    As 22-year-old Monica Lewinsky arrived at the White House in the summer of 1995, she peered up at the imposing building, a mixture of excitement and nerves coursing through her veins. With the help of a family connection, she had wrangled an unpaid internship at the Chief of Staff Leon Panette's office, and it was a dream come true for the psychology graduate. Lewinsky never could have imagined she'd end up embroiled in a national scandal, embarking on an elicit affair with one of the most powerful men in the world and becoming a punchline for the rest of her...

    Washington (CNN)Monica Lewinsky reflected on the mental health struggles she endured in the 1990s amid the scandal surrounding her affair with then-President Bill Clinton, detailing in a new interview the toll it took and how she has reclaimed her story in the years since. Lewinsky, a former White House intern, told CNN's David Axelrod on an episode of "The Axe Files" podcast released Thursday that the investigation into the scandal, which captured the nation's attention for years and eventually led to Clinton's impeachment, caused her to have suicidal ideations. "I just couldn't see a way out. And and I thought...

    In 1997, Kate Nason, then Bleiler, found out her husband Andy Bleiler was having two affairs: one with a colleague and another with a family friend named Monica Lewinsky. SNIP “I had suspected my then-husband was having an affair with a co-worker,” Nason told The Post. “I confronted him about it and he was gaslighting me,” she said. The co-worker showed up to their home and confirmed that nagging suspicion and more: He’d also been having a relationship with Lewinsky, then 23. “I found out about both of them that day.”
  • ‘The View’ co-host Joy Behar claims Hillary Clinton was 'real victim’ of Monica Lewinsky affair

    "The View" co-host Joy Behar on Wednesday dismissed the notion that Monica Lewinsky was a victim of her high-profile affair with former President Bill Clinton, declaring that instead Hillary Clinton and America are the ones who deserve the most sympathy. The daytime gabfest discussed Lewinsky as one of the first victims of cancel culture after the former White House intern’s affair with Clinton and his subsequent impeachment in 1998 for lying under oath. But the liberal host said Hillary Clinton suffering consequences in 2016 over the saga was the real tragedy.

    Monica Lewinsky says that former President Clinton "should want to apologize" for his part in the 1990s scandal surrounding his affair with her, a then-White House intern. "I think there was a long period before my life changed in the last six or seven years, where I felt a lot in terms of there not being this resolution. And I'm very grateful that I don't have that feeling anymore," Lewinsky told "Today's" Savannah Guthrie on Monday when asked if she feels that Clinton owes her an apology. "I don't need it," Lewinsky continued. "He should want to apologize in the...

    Monica Lewinsky says one of her biggest fears of having her story depicted in FX's forthcoming "American Crime Story: Impeachment," of which she serves as a producer, is that she'll be "misunderstood again." "I have anxiety about the process being week to week. That was very challenging for me with the scripts — to understand the arc of this story," Lewinsky, 48, said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter published Wednesday. The third season of the FX series focuses on the "overlooked dimensions" of the 1990's scandal surrounding former President Clinton's affair with the then-White House intern.

    He's just celebrated his 75th birthday but it looks like the party is well and truly over for Bill Clinton. Seen in these exclusive pictures obtained by DailyMail.com, the former president and wife Hillary, 73, looked more like glum and glummer than a couple enjoying the Hampton's sunshine when they went for a stroll on the beach earlier on Tuesday. And perhaps it's little wonder. Because, while the Clintons have long since enjoyed an annual getaway to the Hamptons town of Amagansett, there is no escaping the past. On September 7 the scandal that has dogged Clinton through the years...

    If you’ve been paying attention to the Biden administration’s and the CDC’s handling of COVID the last week, you’ve probably gotten a bad case of whiplash. The same people who just weeks ago were insisting masks were still needed after vaccination are now patting themselves on the back for reversing course, making clearly false claims that the science has somehow changed in that short period. It hasn’t, but what has changed is the politics surrounding all this.Today, CDC Dir. Rochelle Walensky, in an attempt to bolster her agencies failing credibly, made the Sunday show rounds. While speaking to CNN, she...

    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...

    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...
