Bill Clinton issued a public service announcement Friday, reminding the world of the bold-face lie made to millions of Americans in his infamous televised speech in late Jan. 1998 which ended with ‘I did not have sexual affairs with that woman’ during an explosive Hulu special titled Hillary, Your Content has learned.
“Maybe it’s just getting older but I hope it was also going through a lot of this. But whatever, what I did was bad but it wasn’t like – how can I think about the most stupid thing I could and do it,” former President Bill Clinton reveals on the Hulu documentary Hillary, which airs tonight.
“I feel terrible about the fact that Monica Lewinsky’s life was defined by it, unfairly I think.”
The revelation comes from the former President himself in a world exclusive Hulu documentary titled ‘Hillary’ set to air Mar. 6, showcasing the two battle out their dubious pasts. But what’ll likely spark controversy is the resurface of the sexual affair with ex-White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
Bill’s infamous minute-long rant in late Jan. 1998 painted a new picture of a once respected husband.
“I want to say one thing to the American people and I want you to listen to me,” the former President started. “I’m going to say this again … I did not have sexual relations with that woman Ms. Lewinsky,” Clinton lied.

“I never told anybody to lie, not a single time, ever. These allegations are false and I need to go back to work for the American people.”
The overdue confession comes 22-years after then-President Bill Clinton vehemently denied having ‘any sexual relations with those women.’
The scandal led to Bill being impeached in 1998. But he survived the trial in the Senate and remained in office during his second term.
The adulterer added: “Things I did to manage my anxieties for years. I’m a different, totally different person than I was, a lot of that stuff 20 years ago.”
His hand was forced in 1998 when it became evident he had lied to a grand jury investigating his personal affairs by denying the affair.
The documentary was directed by Nanette Burstein whose previous work includes a film about eccentric internet entrepreneur John McAfee.
The television producers interviewed Hillary for 35 hours as well as many members of her campaign staff from 2016, according to the DailyMail.
But neither Bernie Sanders, who virtually beat Hillary in the 2016 Democratic Presidential primary, nor Trump were invited to contribute.
The four-hour series features unprecedented access to the Clintons’ secret inner circle and examines Hillary’s public life from her younger days to losing the 2016 election.
The producers say the show is a ‘remarkably intimate portrait of a public woman, Hillary interweaves revealing moments from never-before-seen 2016 campaign footage with biographical chapters of her life.’
It features world-exclusive exclusive interviews with Hillary Rodham Clinton herself, Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, friends, and journalists, the series examines how she became at once one of the most admired and vilified women in the world.
