Bill Clinton has a major problem on his hands.
Monica Lewinsky has re-emerged, and she has a lot to say about their affair.
And one sentence turned Bill Clinton’s world upside down.
The #MeToo movement is causing all sorts of headaches for Democrats.
The sexual misconduct scandals have exposed liberals in Hollywood, the media, and Washington – all whom present themselves as the champions of women – as undercover sexual predators.
And it is forcing the left to come to grips with the fact that they spent two decades covering for Bill Clinton as he faced allegations of sexual assault, sexual harassment, and rape.
So Monica Lewinsky is using the subsequent #MeToo movement to return to the public spotlight.
She recently penned an essay that appeared in Vanity Fair where she finally admitted that the affair with Clinton was an abuse of his power as a sitting President.
“She said she has drawn strength, however, from the #MeToo movement which has revealed sexual abuse by powerful men in show business, politics and the media.
Lewinsky said she had received a message recently from “one of the brave women leading the #MeToo movement” saying “I’m so sorry you were so alone.”
“Those seven words undid me,” Lewinsky wrote. “They landed in a way that cracked me open and brought me to tears.”
“That I had made mistakes, on that we can all agree,” she said. “But swimming in that sea of Aloneness was terrifying.”
Lewinsky said there are “many more women and men whose voices and stories need to be heard before mine.
“There are even some people who feel my White House experiences don’t have a place in this movement, as what transpired between Bill Clinton and myself was not sexual assault, although we now recognize that it constituted a gross abuse of power,” she said.”
Lewinski’s last sentence is the key.
And it could very well finish Bill Clinton’s time as a national Democrat figure.
As the wave of sexual misconduct scandals sweep America, many Democrats have already begun to re-evaluate Bill Clinton’s role in politics.
Some Democrats have even stepped forward and suggested that Bill Clinton is no longer welcome on the campaign trail this fall.
It is a stunning fall from grace for the first Democrat President since World War II to be re-elected.
The ranks of Democrats who won’t want to be associated with Clinton will only continue to swell now that Lewinsky has come out and accused him of abusing his power by pushing a workplace romance with her when she was a White House intern.
