Monica Lewinsky is a former White House intern who gained international attention in the late 1990s due to her involvement in the scandal that led to the impeachment of U.S. President Bill Clinton. Here are some key points about Monica Lewinsky:
Affair with President Bill Clinton: Monica Lewinsky had an inappropriate sexual relationship with President Bill Clinton while she was a White House intern during Clinton’s presidency from 1995 to 1997. The affair became public knowledge in 1998, leading to a scandal that had far-reaching political and social consequences.
Impeachment of President Bill Clinton: The scandal involving Monica Lewinsky ultimately led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton by the U.S. House of Representatives in 1998. Clinton was charged with perjury and obstruction of justice related to his relationship with Lewinsky, but he was acquitted by the Senate in 1999 and remained in office until the end of his second term in 2001.
Public scrutiny and media attention: Monica Lewinsky’s involvement in the Clinton scandal subjected her to intense public scrutiny and media attention. She became a central figure in a highly publicized and controversial political scandal, and her personal life, including details of her relationship with Clinton, was widely scrutinized by the media and the public.
Aftermath and impact: The scandal had a significant impact on Monica Lewinsky’s life. She faced personal and professional challenges, including public ridicule, harassment, and stigma. However, she has since become an advocate against cyberbullying and has spoken out about the damaging effects of public shaming and online harassment.
Career and activism: Despite the challenges she faced, Monica Lewinsky has pursued a career as a writer, public speaker, and activist. She has used her experiences to raise awareness about issues such as cyberbullying, privacy, and consent, and has advocated for compassion, empathy, and understanding in the age of the internet and social media.
Cultural and historical significance: The Monica Lewinsky scandal has been regarded as a significant event in U.S. political history, with far-reaching implications for media coverage, politics, and public perception of public figures.

Hillary Clinton appeared on the Today Show on January 27, 1998, just days after the Lewinsky affair news broke, and was interviewed by none other than Matt Lauer. A little something for everyone to be angry about here. This was the morning after the President said “I did not have sexual relations with that woman,” and also just hours before the President’s State of the Union speech that evening. Hillary uses the phrase “vast right-wing conspiracy” in this interview. Now that we know what Lauer was up to, it’s even harder to watch this footage.
The only person coming out of all this looking good today is Monica Lewinsky herself, who is a charming and intelligent professional with a great sense of humor, working as an anti-bullying activist and fashion designer as of 2019. Check her out in a fantastic interview with John Oliver (starts at ~15:35): https://youtu.be/Yq7Eh6JTKIg
I bet comments here won’t exactly be uplifting, but please be civil to each other, or I’m smashin’ those delete and block buttons.
Technical: This is a replay via C-SPAN. Recorded on a well-worn RCA VR671HF VHS hi-fi VCR at the 4-hour LP speed via very average cable signal on a Maxell HGX-Gold tape. Luminance levels were corrected, and video was sharpened a bit. Upconverted to 1080p60 to preserve some image quality and motion. But it’s still VHS.
