Monica Lewinsky just cut a live interview short at the time of a conference in Jerusalem on Monday night. This is cited to be due to being asked an “off the limits” question regarding former President Bill Clinton, stating later that the interviewer disregarded “clear parameters” for the discussion.

Lewinsky was being interviewed by Israeli TV anchor Yonit Levi of Hadashot News. During the interview, Levi would start to ask questions to Lewinsky whether she still expects a private apology from Clinton on the matter of their affair back in the 1990s when she was a White House intern.
“I’m so sorry, I’m not going to be able to do this,”
were her last words before Lewinsky dropped the mic and left the stage. Lewinsky then stated on Twitter that
“there were clear parameters about what we would be discussing and what we would not.”
Lewinsky has been an activist against social media bullying for long and gave a speech on the “perils and positives of the internet”. And then she was said to be doing a 15 minute conversation with Levi, following up on the matter. In the words of Lewinsky, she told Levi, 24 hours prior, that the question is “off limits”.
“When she asked me it on stage, with blatant disregard for our agreement, it became clear to me I had been misled,”
says Lewinsky. On the other hand, in a statement Hadashot News stated that it “stood up to all of its agreements with Ms. Lewinsky and honored her requests.”
“We believe the question asked on stage was legitimate and respectful, and one that certainly does not go beyond Ms. Lewinsky’s requests and does not cross the line,”
the statement goes on.
That is all for now. Thanks for reading “Monica Lewinsky Refuses To Talk About Her Past With Bill Clinton”.
