You Won't Believe What President Clinton Urged 'Suicidal' Lewinsky to Do
Lewinsky said that Clinton had called her at 2:30 in the morning to let her know that she was on the witness list for the Paula Jones case.
"I was petrified. I was frantic about my family and this becoming public," Lewinsky tearfully recalled. "Thankfully, Bill helped me lock myself back from that and he said I could probably sign an affidavit to get out of it, and he didn't even know if a 100 percent I would be subpoenaed."
She was subpoenaed a few days later.
Once it was discovered that Lewinsky was having an affair with Clinton, the FBI forced the young staffer to be part of the bureau investigation into the president.
Lewinsky recalled how during a 12-hour interrogation the FBI threatened to prosecute her mother and said both women could face up to 27 years in prison for lying about the affair.
Lewinsky, following the president's implicit advice, initially refused to cooperate with the FBI. She alternated between being hysterical, angry, and abusive at the agents, before demanding to call her mother.
"You're 24, you don't need to call your mommy, you need to make a decision about what to do," an agent retorted.
After the affair broke, Clinton – despite being a lying creep – ended his presidency with glowing approval ratings. Critical Republicans were seen as retrograde squares, people who couldn't accept the 1950s were over.
And the women who accused the president were cast aside as cheap, manipulative, and ugly by everyone from James Carville to Jay Leno.
Even Lewinsky, who had consensual relations with the president felt suicidal.
