Long gone are the days where Monica Lewinski was in the spotlight after being revealed to have been in an alleged sexual relationship with former president Bill Clinton. Dragging herself back into the public spectacle, she has recently come forward to share her side of the story.
Recently writing a piece for Vanity Fair, Lewinski is set to detail the relationship between the two and even a bit of her life after the matter. The controversial woman has recently declared the relationship between the two as “consensual,” saying:
“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.”
Lewinski further described her choice of opening up to the public as a way to help her find some purpose in life. Explaining that she wished her troubles in life to not have been for nothing, she is aiming to help others thrust into the spotlight over something more humiliating.

In an attempt to aid others through their tough time – as she describes wishing for when she was going through hard times – she seeks to demonstrate that that struggle is real, but conquerable.
Now of course, as you can imagine, Lewinski is probably holding some grudges against the Clinton family, and although she hasn’t come forward and directly said so, some have speculated that this is a direct attack against Hillary’s potential 2016 presidential run. Seeing how Hillary is already in the spotlight again as the Benghazi investigation is heating up and has proved that she in fact lied directly to Congress, this may just be another nail in the coffin for her hopeful run.
