OK, glad Monica is finally able to tell HER story. She should also not leave out Linda Tripp.

Linda Tripp played a significant role in getting Monica to come forward with her story and turning it into an almost non-consensual affair. I also wonder if Monica's friend will come forward with her book now?

There is some history that some may not remember or may be too young to even know.

going to be made to address all this again. In so doing, considerable media outlets will predictably make her the "villain", not the victim, and somehow to "blame" for Bill's bad behavior.

And it gets losinger and all the time.

Democrats running for office in the MeToo era get it. No one wanted to campaign with Bill in the midterms. And Hillary disappeared into fundraising and email-land after that tone deaf Monica-was-a-consenting-adult quote. There was an appearance with Menendez in NJ if you want to count that.

So Linda-Tripp away. If we're talking about why the Lewinsky affair was overdone, we're wasting time at best.

Do we really need to rehash it? A very different time with very different values. It also serves to diss Hillary once again just in case she's thinking about running again. Boycott this trash from the Corporation Disney!

Was watching MSNBC and they started with this worn out trot again so I turned them off. Take about beating a topic to death.

8 years and 10s of millions of taxpayers dollars on shameless, bullshit investigations of the Clintons. Actually, a good documentary detailing these partisan hunting expeditions would probably take a month to get through....

Why does she need to do all this public confession stuff? I guess she'll monetize it somehow. Nothing but idle gossip. I guess Fox talking heads will be thrilled. Whatever.
