Bill And Hillary Clinton Open Up About Monica Lewinsky...

The Monica Lewinsky Scandal

  • 42nd President of the United States
  • Term: 1993-2001
  • Scandal in 1988

The two above top Presidential Scandals in History are both stories related to politics, what about love scandals, even adultery scandals? 

Well, it would be remiss not to mention the love scandal that can be considered the most embarrassing during former President Bill Clinton's term. This is also considered an "unprecedented" love scandal in the history of American presidents. Actually, Former President Clinton was involved in a number of scandals when rumored to have had extramarital affairs with Gennifer Flower and Paula Jones. However, after all, Monica Lewinsky, an intern at the White House, was the unforgettable black mark in his life.

What happened?

The scandal erupted in January 1998 when news of the affair became public. Lewinsky once admitted that between 1995 and 1997, she had a romantic relationship with President Clinton in the Oval Office. The case became even more unfavorable for Mr. Clinton when Linda Tripp, a colleague of Lewinsky, published tapes recording the "not so pure" relationship between the former US president and the intern. Besides, other evidence to the contrary emerged, including Lewinsky's stained dress containing DNA evidence

At the beginning of the scandal, Mr. Clinton firmly denied the allegations. However, the former president was forced to admit to "having an inappropriate relationship with Lewinsky" after an investigation and a hearing were conducted, even when he was in the presidency. Those events rarely happen during the terms of other presidents.

Consequences

The scandal had significant consequences. President Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives in December 1998 for charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. The impeachment trial then went to the Senate, where he was ultimately found not guilty in February 1999. Although he wasn't removed from office, the scandal had a negative impact on Clinton's reputation and legacy. Congress formally criticized his actions, which further tarnished his standing.

Not only the Former President but also Monica Lewinsky had to face severe consequences. She endured public humiliation and became a target of media scrutiny. Her life changed in ways she didn't expect, and it was hard for her to move forward from the scandal. However, in later years, Lewinsky has become an advocate against cyberbullying and for empathy and compassion in public discourse.

Moreover, the Monica Lewinsky Scandal also had a lasting impact on American politics and society. It's an important part of U.S. history that shows how personal actions can affect public figures and their lives.
