Lewinsky was an adult, so Bill did nothing wrong, Hillary Clinton believes

Hillary Clinton has defended her husband, former President Bill Clinton, over his affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky by directly contradicting her characterization what happened.

But the former first lady during an uncomfortable interview on "CBS Sunday Morning" gave a different version of events.

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

Hillary Clinton said the incident could not be considered "abuse of power" as Lewinsky, 22 years old at the time, was an "adult".

Bill Clinton lied about and then admitted to having an affair with a White House intern, almost three decades his junior, while he was United States president.

If you finish plays like that and Brady, who had pump-faked, had indeed thrown the ball, Speaks likely would have been penalized. That Kansas City might get alternately picked on and bullied on the ground and spread thin and picked apart through the air.

But speaking on CBS News on Sunday, former presidential candidate and secretary of state Hillary Clinton said she disagreed.

But when asked if she wishes she had done things differently in her personal life and done more to support the women who accused a powerful man of wrongdoing, Clinton says no and points to the impeachment investigation as evidence of why she feels no remorse for her actions.

During the interview, Clinton pointed out multiple accusations of sexual misconduct against current US President Donald Trump.

Talking to Dokoupil, Clinton affirmed that she played "no role" in undermining the character of the women who came out against her husband. "There was an investigation and it, as I believe, came out in the right place", news agency AFP quoted Clinton as saying. They will likely face renewed interest and scrutiny regarding Bill Clinton's conduct in the wake of the national divide sparked by Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hearings, after he was accused of sexual misconduct and assault by three women.

The House in 1999 voted to impeach Clinton of perjury and obstruction of its investigation into the affair. But these are conversations we're having now, and it's entirely disappointing to see Clinton be so unwilling to catch up.
