Monica Lewinsky cuts her talk in Israel after asking whether she expects Bill Clinton’s apology.
Monica Lewinsky came out of the theatre during an interview on Monday at a conference in Israel – after the interviewer asked her a question about former President Bill Clinton.
Lewinsky sat in the Q & A session after she spoke about the pros and cons of the Internet at a conference organized by Israeli TV News on Monday. The interview asked whether Lewinsky was still waiting for a ‘personal apology’ from Clinton, the Ha’aretz newspaper reported.
‘Recently in an interview with NBC News, former President Clinton was angry when asked if he personally apologized to you,’ said news anchor Univ Levey. ‘Do you still expect this apology, personal apology?’

‘I’m very sorry, I will not be able to do this,’ answered Lewinsky, 44, before breaking into the stage.
Lewinsky became a familiar name after her relationship with Clinton in the 1990s when she was an intern at the White House in her early 20s. Often ironic, the guns became anti-bullying and active.
There were clear criteria for what we were going to discuss and what we would not discuss,’ she said.
‘The exact question the announcer put forward was that she put it on me when we met the day before.’ I said this was out of bounds, and when she asked me on stage, with blatant disregard of our agreement, it became clear to me that it had been misleading. ‘

Lewinski said that leaving the theatre sent a message that ‘it is more important than ever that women defend themselves and not allow others to control their novel.’
NBC interview mentioned by Levi was held in June. Clinton was asked by Craig Melvin if he personally apologized to Lewinsky.
‘I never spoke to her, but I said, publicly, on more than one occasion, I’m sorry,’ Clinton said during the interview. He also objected to the Melvin interrogation method: ‘Someone should ask you these questions because of the way you formulate the question.’
