"I've never talked to her", Clinton said, adding that he had publicly apologized to Lewinsky and "everybody in the world".

But then when Clinton was asked by by NBC whether he owed Lewinsky a direct apology, he said: "No, I do not". "The apology was public".

Clinton added that he paid a price - literally - for the affair, despite the fact that he remained in office.

Clinton challenged Melvin on how he was phrasing his questions and said the facts had been "distorted" following the many accusations made by women against current President Donald Trump. Robert Mueller has yet to tie Trump to anything, but many believe that it is only a matter of time before something comes out about the President.

The backlash against Clinton comes in response to an interview he gave to NBC News that aired Monday, in which he defended his initial response to the Lewinsky scandal in 1998. "But you typically have ignored gaping facts in describing this". "That you still have Juanita Broaddrick suffering what she went through". "I left the White House with $16 million in debt". "That's all I have to say to you". "Nobody believes I got out of that for free". Lewinsky said a leader of the #MeToo movement contacted her and apologized that she endured the 90s political sex-scandal alone.
