Hillary Clinton: Bill's Affair With Monica Lewinsky Was Not An Abuse Of Power, What About Trump?


Hillary Clinton said her husband, former President Bill Clinton, did not abuse power when he entered into a relationship with Monica Lewinsky. In an interview with 'CBS Sunday Morning,' she said in retrospect that her husband "absolutely" shouldn't have resigned.

Clinton quickly changed the subject to President Trump and called for investigations into accusations made against him.

"In restrospect, do you think Bill should have resigned in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal?" correspondent Tony Dokoupil asked.

"Absolutely not," Clinton answered.

"It wasn't an abuse of power?" the reporter asked.

"No," she responded.

"There are people who look at the incidents of the 90s and they say, 'A president of the United States cannot have a consensual relationship with an intern, the power imbalance is too great,'" Dokoupil said.

"He was an adult," Clinton said about her husband.

"Let me ask you this," Clinton, beginning to make the shift, said. "Where is the investigation of the current incumbent, against who numerous allegations have been made, and which he dismisses, denies, and ridicules?"
