KING: I want to play some tape of what President Clinton said about the Me Too movement because as you point out, some of these new criticisms of Clinton kicked up in the wake of this movement over the past couple of months.
Clinton was promoting his new book at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture Monday evening when he addressed the furor over his earlier comments.
Previously, Clinton lied under oath by denying the affair with the at the time 22-year-old woman. "The apology was public".
"I have not talked to her", Clinton said. "I apologized to everybody in the world", he said.
"It's 20 years ago", he said.
"The American people, two-thirds of them stayed with me".
"He was my boss". He was the most powerful man on the planet. "He was 27 years my senior, with enough life experience to know better", she said.
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 guess he didn't mean it", Podhoretz added.
In 2017, Mr Clinton and Mr Patterson signed a deal with television network Showtime to transform the book's written contents into a TV series, according to Entertainment Weekly.
As for Gillibrand's remarks, Clinton said, "She's living in a different context".
The #metoo movement, he conceded, was long overdue.
Here is the truth of it: a human life was altered & destroyed due to your selfishness. "Because. You. Could. You not only wiped your semen on a young girl's dress, you left a stain on society", McGowan wrote.
Following the interview, Lewinsky spoke out on Twitter, sharing her Vanity Fair essay and writing that she was "grateful to the myriad people who have helped me evolve + gain perspective in the past 20 years".
Clinton said his critics were "omitting facts" to lump him in with other men accused of sexual assault and harassment.
