Mr Patterson joined Mr Clinton for the NBC interview, and seemed equally surprised that Mr Clinton would be asked about the Lewinsky scandal on his book tour.

Despite being impeached on December 19, 1998 by the House of Representatives for perjury and obstruction of justice - he was later acquitted of the charges - Mr Clinton remained as president of the United States for another two years.

But Mr Clinton defended his treatment of women in his interview with NBC, saying he had a long history of helping empower the women around him.

In a Vanity Fair essay published in March, she wrote about how she is just now beginning to understand how power dynamics played into the relationship.

Clinton avoided direct criticism of President Donald Trump during the interview, but allowed President Duncan a few words about voting rights (expand them), Dreamers and other immigrants (we need them) and the peril to democracy when we "drift into tribalism, extremism and seething resentments".

"I like the #MeToo movement; it's way overdue", Clinton said.

Asked about the #MeToo movement of women denouncing sexual abuse or harassment by powerful men in show business, politics and the media, Clinton said, "I like the #MeToo movement".

"I'd asked you if you'd ever apologized and you said you had", Melvin said. He hadn't apologized to her directly. "That's all I have to say".

Asked if the media has been unfair to Trump in its reporting on the Russian Federation probe, Clinton said, "I think they have tried by and large to cover this investigation based on the facts".

"I don't think it would be an issue, because people would be using the facts instead of the imagined facts", the former President said.

She added that, "I'm beginning to entertain the notion that in such a circumstance the idea of consent might well be rendered moot".
