After all these years, Monica Lewinsky is finally opening up about Bill Clinton trying to convince her “to break the law” and lie under oath. Although Lewinsky certainly bears her share of responsibility for what happened in the White House with Clinton, he unabashedly used the young intern sexually and then further compromised her by getting her to lie.
Lewinsky revealed that Clinton convinced her to deny the affair they had if she was called to testify in the Paula Jones case. Lewinsky was told by Bill Clinton that she could avoid being deposed if she denied the affair in an affidavit. That one thing should have gotten Clinton removed from office at some point along with all the other allegations of rape and sexual misconduct. From Fox News:
Monica Lewinsky has opened up for the first time about how Bill Clinton convinced her “to break the law” and lie under oath.
In the final part of the A&E docuseries “The Clinton Affair,” Lewinsky revealed that Clinton convinced her to deny the affair if she was called to testify in the Paula Jones case. The 45-year-old recalled the former president telling her that she could avoid being deposed if she denied the affair in an affidavit.
Lewinsky said that Clinton had called her at 2:30 in the morning to let her know that she was on the witness list for the Paula Jones case.
“I was petrified. I was frantic about my family and this becoming public,” Lewinsky tearfully recalled. “Thankfully, Bill helped me lock myself back from that and he said I could probably sign an affidavit to get out of it, and he didn’t even know if a 100 percent I would be subpoenaed.”
