See Bill Clinton's Answers When Asked About Monica Lewinsky, 'MeToo'

In today's interview, NBC News' Craig Melvin grilled Clinton about whether he would have dealt with the Monica Lewinsky affair differently in light of the #MeToo movement. "And I think what was lost were the two points that I made that are important to me", Clinton said in Harlem, according to CNN.

"I talked to [Clinton] about his book, and all he said was, more than once, 'You wouldn't believe the offers I've gotten, '" Branch said in a March 7, 2001 tape. Melvin noted that Lewinsky had taken responsibility for her part, and he asked Clinton whether, in retrospect, he takes more responsibility. "I left the White House $16 million dollars in debt", Clinton said. "That's very different - the apology was public".

He told Rocca that if the same facts of the investigation were present when a Democrat was in office, "most people I know in Washington believe impeachment hearings would have begun already". "I apologized to my family, to Monica Lewinsky and her family, and to the American people. You're giving one side and omitting facts".

Clinton added that he's tried to "do a good job since then" with his personal and professional life.

News of the Lewinsky affair first broke in January 1998, and the resulting scandal led to Clinton's impeachment by the House of Representatives in December 1998 for perjury and obstruction of justice.

On Monday, Lewinsky shared the piece again on Twitter in what seemed to be a gentle response to the Clinton interview, writing: "Grateful to the myriad people who have helped me evolve + gain perspective in the past 20 years".

"This was litigated 20 years ago", he said.

In a later tweet, she added, "Today, I wanted to tweet about my experience at Hay Literary Festival".

"No. Yes", Clinton said, incomprehensibly, later explaining that he apologized to the nation.

Clinton says his critics are "omitting facts" to lump him in with other men accused of sexual assault and harassment. "I'm beginning to entertain the notion that in such a circumstance the idea of consent might well be rendered moot". "Although power imbalances-and the ability to abuse them-do exist even when the sex has been consensual".

He also said that he had never privately apologised to Lewinsky and that he did not feel he needed to. He claimed to support the effort, but not everything that it has brought about."I still have questions about some of the decisions which have been made", he said.

Clinton's spot as TV critic comes ahead of this week's release of The President Is Missing, an unlikely fictional collaboration with the bestselling Patterson.
