President Clinton’s affair with Lewinsky was not abuse of power: Hillary Clinton

Monica Lewinsky was a young White House intern at the time of the scandal, while Bill Clinton, at 49, was the president of the United States.

Hillary Clinton has said her husband Bill's affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power and he was right to not resign from the USA presidency in the wake of the scandal. One of the allegations against Clinton is that he raped a woman in 1970s.

"It wasn't an abuse of power?" pressed Dokoupil.

Lewinsky, who at 22 had an affair with then-President Clinton, called it in March 2018 a "gross abuse of power".

During the show Monday, several co-hosts on "The View" discussed Hillary's remarks on CBS' "Sunday Morning" during which she downplayed her husband's affair with Lewinsky.

Aiello also commended Olean firefighters for wearing pink in October in recognition of those who have fought the disease. That includes 1 in 8 women in the United Kingdom developing breast cancer at some stage in their lifetime.

When CBS' Tony Dokoupil noted that critics say it's impossible for a president to have a consensual relationship with an intern, Hillary Clinton responded that Lewinsky was "an adult", then steered the conversation toward the numerous sexual misconduct allegations against President Donald Trump.

The former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic nominee for president denied that her husband's sexual relationship with Lewinksy, who was 22 when it began, should be considered an abuse of power.

"Absolutely not", she replied when asked whether her husband should have resigned.

Clinton: No role. I take responsibility for my life and my actions.

"There was an investigation and it, as I believe, came out in the right place", she added. But his wife Hillary says it's "different" when it's about Bill, because there have been investigations - even when comparing them to Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh and the multiple FBI background checks that couldn't save him from having to testify along with a late accuser as he fought to secure the seat. But the investigation into her husband's potential perjury and obstruction of justice have nothing to do with the mistreatment of Monica Lewinsky, who has since been diagnosed with PTSD stemming from the events of the 90s.
