Hillary Clinton Defends Bill’s Affair: Monica Lewinsky Was An Adult, Wasn’t an Abuse of Power

In a new interview with CBS, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a firm stance regarding her husband’s handling of the Monica Lewinsky affair when he was president.

When asked if former President Bill Clinton should have resigned, Hillary adamantly said he should not have.

“Absolutely not,” Clinton replied.

“It wasn’t an abuse of power?” CBS’ Tony Dokoupil followed up.

“No,” she answered, adding it could not have been an abuse of power because Lewinsky was an adult.

Watch the video below:


Clinton’s assertion that there was no power imbalance between the leader of the free world and an intern did not sit well with many:

Clinton then shifted the focus to President Donald Trump and the sexual misconduct allegations against him.

“Let me ask you this, where’s the investigation of the current incumbent?” she continued. “Against whom numerous allegations have been made and which he dismisses, denies, and ridicule.”

In another interview with CNN, the former Secretary of State further said people are incapable of being civil with Republicans because the party is trying to destroy what they stand for.

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton told Christiane Amanpour.

“That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again,” she added. “But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

What do you think?

“Abuse of Power” has nothing to do with her being an adult, it has to do with the relative professional positions of the two people involved. Statutory rape has to do with being an adult. Clinton is obscuring the issue by conflating abuse of power with statutory rape….that may make good propaganda and slick talk, but it’s not good adherence to the truth.

she shifts the conversation to Trump and his alleged sexual misconducts also with adults…..the difference is???? Clinton’s conduct while POTUS in the oval office with an “adult intern” vs Trump’s conduct before POTUS. Relieved to see media caught her “spin” on this. I do get offended by how stupid some think the American people are.

Maybe not an abuse as the law sees it. Perjury on the other hand is and he is very guilty of that. He should have resigned his position for that. You democrats look at bill, that is what an embarrassment looks like. Let’s not even get started on ALL THOSE SUICIDES BY GUNSHOTS IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD RIGHT BEFORE A WITNESS WAS TO TESTIFY AGAINST BILL OR HILL! Two of the most murderous politicians ever to enter office!!

“Where’s the investigation of the current incumbent”? Hillary, Trump was a democrat back then, he’s come over from the “dark side”. Besides, we want you, Obama, the dnc and your minions punished for your crimes more than we care about Trump f-g some pornho. Vote Red in November, so heads will roll in the New Year. #WalkAway
