Speaking to CBS News, Clinton defended her husband. "Absolutely not." The reporter follows up by asking if his relationship with Lewinsky might've been an abuse of power.

"There are people who look at the incidents of the '90s and they say, 'A president of the United States can not have a consensual relationship with an intern; the power imbalance is too great, '" said Mr. Dokoupil, at which point Mrs. Clinton interjected, "who was an adult".

Talking to Dokoupil, Clinton affirmed that she played "no role" in undermining the character of the women who came out against her husband.

Former First Lady Hillary Clinton said her husband, US President Bill Clinton, "absolutely" did the correct thing by not resigning after the 1998 sex scandal broke, arguing that the 22-year-old Monica Lewinsky was an adult at the time of her affair with POTUS.

Clinton was referring to multiple allegations of sexual assault and harassment leveled against President Donald Trump, which Trump has denied.

Lewinsky has said in the past that her affair with Bill Clinton was consensual, but has reconsidered that view recently.

Hillary Clinton has gone on several media outlets over the past few days to bash President Trump. "Where's the investigation of the current incumbent, against whom numerous allegations have been made, and which he dismisses, denies, and ridicules?'" Clinton said.

Clinton called Monica Lewinsky a "narcissistic loony toon".

President Clinton was accused by at least four women anything from unwanted sexual advances to rape.

When pressed about whether a sexual relationship between the world's most powerful leader and an office intern constitutes an imbalance of power, Clinton merely noted that both individuals were adults at the time.
