Bill Clinton On Affair With Monica Lewinsky: ‘I Did It To Manage My Anxieties’
Bill Clinton is finally giving some insight into why he did the deed with Monika Lewinsky. In an upcoming documentary series titled Hilary, Bill sits down for an interview and tells all.
Per Daily Mail, Clinton says his affair with Lewinsky was one of the “things to manage my anxieties.” They add, “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.'” During the interview, he also goes into detail about the painful marriage counseling the couple endured afterward, and he carves out time to apologize to Monica Lewinsky.
Clinton’s affair with Lewinsky led to him being impeached in 1998. He, like President Trump, would eventually be acquitted by the Senate, and he remained in office during his second term.
Daily Mail also reveals that Bill discusses the moment he finally came clean to Hilary. “He said in the interview: ‘I went and sat on the bed and talked to her. I told her exactly what happened, when it happened. I said I feel terrible about it. We’ve been through quite a bit in the last few years. I said I have no defense, it’s inexcusable what I did.'” Hillary Clinton also goes into detail about how she felt once her husband told the truth.
The four-part series will give insight into the Clinton family and their public life, and will explore her losing the election to Trump. Hilary will stream on Hulu beginning Friday.
