Monica Lewinsky walks out of Jerusalem interview after Clinton question

2018-09-04 16:34
JERUSALEM—Monica Lewinsky said on Sept. 4, that she stormed offstage at a Jerusalem speaking event on Sept. 3, because of an interviewer’s “off limits” question about former President Bill Clinton. The former White House intern, who is now an anti-bullying activist, said via Twitter that there were agreed-upon parameters regarding the topics of her televised conversation Monday night with a well-known Israeli news anchor. The interview came after a conference speech she gave about the perils of the internet. Lewinsky called Yonit Levi’s first question about her relationship with Clinton a “blatant disregard for our agreement.” Levi, the main anchor of Israel’s top-rated evening newscast, asked Lewinsky if she still expected a personal apology from Clinton over the fallout of the scandal of their affair 20 years ago. Lewinsky responded: “I’m so sorry. I’m not going to be able to do this.” She then put down her microphone and walked offstage.
