The sexual behavior of Bill Clinton in 1998 led the then president to a process of impeachment, although he was finally exonerated.
The former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that her husband Bill Clinton’s relationship with Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power because the then White House scholar was 22 years old and was “already an adult.”
In a moment of great feminist debate and the rise of the #MeToo movement, which she herself has defended, she was asked on the CBS network about whether her husband should have resigned as president after the matter came to light, to which Hillary Clinton said: “Absolutely, no.”
Asked again if Bill Clinton (1993-2001) had committed an abuse of power, since a president of the United States could not have a consensus relationship with a fellow, he added: “No, no” because Lewinsky “was a adult”.

The sexual behavior of Bill Clinton in 1998 led to the then president to a process of impeachment , although he was finally exonerated by Congress.
Last March, in a column in the Vanity Fair magazine, Lewinsky claimed that there was ciert or “inappropriate abuse of authority” by Clinton
“Now I realize how problematic it was until we both came to the question of consent, the road that led to it was riddled with inappropriate abuse of authority, position and privilege,” Lewinsky wrote.
For years, this woman of Californian origin has denounced that only she paid a high price for everything that happened, because while Clinton left behind the investigation of special prosecutor Kenneth Starr and continued with his Presidency, she, she says, was isolated from work, what generated a post-traumatic stress disorder.
