While elections are approaching fast, Monica Lewinsky’s name is out again, as it had been said that she was voting for Hillary Clinton.
Recently, in an interview former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani said certain things about Donald Trump, former president Bill Clinton and the current Democratic nominee. Giuliani had been one of the most vocal and the loudest supporters of Donald Trump.
During the interview, Giuliani was asked to defend the Republican nominee after the video got leaked last week in which Donald Trump was boasting about grabbing women “by the pussy” in 2005.
However, Giuliani did not exactly avoid the question but played a different card while answering. He said: “How come he wasn’t prosecuted for raping Juanita Broaddrick? Why wasn’t he prosecuted for taking advantage of an intern in the White House?”
According to Salon, The last question the New York mayor asked was in congruence with the former president Clinton’s back to back sexual encounters with the then White House intern Monica Lewinsky from 1995 to 1997. He went on to say that traces of semen was found on Lewinsky’s dress, which showed that Bill Clinton lied to America.
“Just like her husband, [Hillary Clinton] is getting away with lying to America.” Giuliani said.
It was reported by Boise Weekly that Monica Lewinsky was set to visit Boise ahead of Election Day. However, the exact day of her speech and the location were being kept confidential by the sponsors of her appearance – international Young Presidents’ Organization – Idaho branch.
Earlier Monica Lewinsky had spoken, regarding the mission to combat cyberbullying, to private groups. She said that she wanted to use her suffering for good use and provide purpose to her past.
“Not a day goes by that I am not reminded of that mistake and regret it completely,” Lewinsky said, on September 29, at a conference in London .
“I learned the devastating consequences.”
It was reported on July, 2016, that Lewinsky had said that she would be voting for the former First Lady Hillary Clinton. The comment became entirely viral. Empire News reported that she said she felt that it would be impossible for her to vote for Trump as she believed that Trump was the biggest bully.
“I understand that there are some weird ramifications of me voting for my former lover’s wife, but you know, those were different times. That dress has long since been burned, if you know what I mean.” Lewinsky said.
She said that it was a woman’s place inside the Oval Office.
However, according to Snopes, ‘Empire News’ is a fake-news website and was strictly meant for celebrity parody. Moreover, Monica Lewinsky had not yet publicly disclosed whether she would vote of Hillary Clinton or Trump.
