Monica Lewinsky news – Jake Tapper discusses date and Bill Clinton affair with Monica ahead of new HBO documentary

MONICA Lewinsky was interviewed by CNN’s Jake Tapper last night, almost 25 years after the duo went on a “G-rated” date.

Lewinsky and Tapper joked during the interview about how their date was featured on the latest episode of FX’s hit show, Impeachment: American Crime Story.

“First of all, Monica: Yes, I have to disclose, full disclosure, in tonight’s episode, our G-rated date from December 1997 is portrayed,” Tapper said.

The CNN star had also previously written an article about the date.

During Tuesday’s interview, Lewinksy also addressed the Bill Clinton affair, calling it “wholly inappropriate”.

“It was wholly inappropriate as the most powerful man, my boss, 49 years old. I was 22, literally just out of college,” she said.

“And I think that the power differentials there are something that I couldn’t ever fathom consequences at 22 that I understand obviously so differently at 48.”

Lewinsky is also co-producer of a new HBO documentary, 15 Minutes of Shame, which is released this week.
