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.
Once the word of the affair was out in the open, Lewinsky admitted that the scandal was almost too much for her to handle and revealed that she contemplated committing suicide.
"There was a point for me somewhere within these first several hours where I would be hysterically crying and then I would just shut down," she admitted. "And in the shutdown period, I just remember looking out the window and thinking the only way to fix this is to kill myself."
What a shame. It has seemed Bill Clinton has "disappeared" the past year. I guess Democrats do not want a sexual predator rallying for their candidates.
