RUSH: “Monica Lewinsky Breaks 10 Years of Silence on Affair with President Clinton — After a decade of near-total silence, Monica Lewinsky has taken to the pages of Vanity Fair to discuss her affair,” when she was 19 “with President Bill Clinton — and her subsequent efforts to move forward with her life. ‘It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress,’ writes Lewinsky in the magazine. ‘I, myself, deeply regret what happened between me and President Clinton. Let me say it again: I. Myself. Deeply. Regret. What. Happened.’
“In the excerpt from the article, she also denies rumors that the Clintons paid her for silence (‘I can assure you that nothing could be further from the truth’) and talks about moving forward with her life (‘I am determined to have a different ending to my story.’) She also reaffirms that her relationship with President Clinton was strictly consensual:
Sure, my boss took advantage of me –” That’s no big deal. She didn’t write “no big deal.” I just threw that in ’cause that’s the way it’s been treated by the Clinton machine.
“Sure, my boss took advantage of me, but I will always remain firm on this point: it was a consensual relationship. Any ‘abuse’ came in the aftermath, when I was made a scapegoat in order to protect his powerful position. […] The Clinton administration, the special prosecutor’s minions, the political operatives on both sides of the aisle, and the media were able to brand me. And that brand stuck, in part because it was imbued with power.”
Now, there’s much more to this. Vanity Fair doesn’t do short stuff, so it is very long. So she admits that she was taken advantage of, but that it was a consensual relationship. She also alludes to the fact that in the aftermath of this, it was Hillary — we all know this — it was Hillary that ran the “bimbo eruptions.”
