Lewinsky: Clinton affair a ‘gross abuse of power’

NEW YORK

Monica Lewinsky says the affair that led to impeachment proceedings against President Bill Clinton “was not sexual assault” but “constituted a gross abuse of power.”

Lewinsky writes in the March issue of Vanity Fair that she is “in awe of the sheer courage” of women who’ve been confronting “entrenched beliefs and institutions.”

The former White House intern says she was recently moved to tears when a leader of the #MeToo movement told her, “I’m so sorry you were so alone.”

Lewinsky says she’s been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress from being “publicly outed and ostracized,” and lauds the “#MeToo” movement for providing “the safety that comes from solidarity.”
