Monica Lewinsky, 45, who was involved in the infamous scandal with Bill in the late 1990’s, recently stated that it was Hillary Clinton who put her through hell in her early 20’s.

In May 2014, she made a statement regarding the president’s affair scandal.

Lewinsky shared her view and commentary of the incident that involved then-21-year-old White House intern. Lewinsky confessed that there was no real meaning behind her actions.

She still regrets what happened every day, and she said that Hillary did everything back in the late 1990’s to put Monica through hell. Now she is reminded every day about what have happened over 20 years ago.

The affair between Lewinsky and President Clinton happened between 1995 and 1996. The whole story became public in 1998, and ultimately lead to the impeachment of President Clinton, and put Lewinsky in the worst position a 20-year-old could imagine.

“It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress," she said, referencing the dress that had become stained during an encouter with the president. “I, myself, deeply regret what happened between me and President Clinton. Let me say it again: I. Myself. Deeply. Regret. What. Happened.”

To this day, she maintains that their relationship was consensual, and any abuse that occurred happened only after their affair was exposed, where the president lay most of the blame with her to protect himself.

She has apologized multiple times for making this huge mistake that cost her not only reputation, but years of calm life.

“Hillary Clinton wanted it on record that she was lashing out at her husband’s mistress. She may have faulted her husband for being inappropriate, but I find her impulse to blame the Woman - not only me, but herself - troubling. [She] blamed herself for her husband’s affair (by being emotionally neglectful) and seemed to forgive him,” Lewinsky said.

Lewinsky's statement fully explains her attitude towards Hillary. During the 2016 presidential elections where the former First Lady ran for the Democratic party, this scandal came up more than once.

Lewinsky's response was provoked by the recent disclosure of conversation between Hillary and a confidante that took place in 1998. In this conversation, Hillary had called Lewinsky a "narcissistic loony toon."

When Hillary was asked during her campaign whether she really said that of her husband's former intern, she replied that she had no intention on commenting on whatever she did or did not say in the 1990’s.
