Former President Bill Clinton said in an interview over the weekend that he doesn’t owe an apology to Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern with whom he engaged in an inappropriate sexual affair.
“No,” he told NBC in an interview airing Monday on the “Today” show. “I do not. I have never talked to her. But I did say publicly on more than one occasion that I was sorry.”
“I apologized to everybody in the world,” Mr. Clinton said, clearly insinuating that was sufficient.
He also lamented how he was a victim in the scandal, reminding viewers and the interviewer that he left the White House $16 million in debt.
“Nobody believes that I got out of that for free,” he added. “I left the White House $16 million in debt.”
Former President Bill Clinton is now worth roughly $80 million.
