EX-Prez BILL CLINTON struggled to admit the truth about his dangerous liaisons with MONICA LEWINSKY gripping new doc reveals!
In new PBS documentary “Clinton” Big Bill grappled with whether or not to fess up to the American public AND those closes to him, including disbelieving cabinet members, about his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
According to the doc, Clinton reached out to famed pollster Dick Morris to test the waters about whether or not he should be honest about his relationship with Lewinsky.
Yet, this was AFTER he denied the whole thing with his infamous "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" line.
Pollster Dick Morris recalled, "(Bill Clinton) said, 'Ever since I got here to the White House I've had to shut my body down — sexually, I mean — but I screwed up with this girl. I didn't do what they said I did, but I may have done so much that I can't prove my innocence.
"I said, 'Let me test it, let me run a poll.' So I took a poll and I tested popular attitudes on that and I called him back and I said, 'They will forgive the adultery, but they won't easily forgive that you lied.'"
Later, Clinton admitted to oral sex and his fondness for cigars. And lest we forget, the attacks against Clinton in Congress were spearheaded by love rat NEWT GINGRICH.
As THE ENQUIRER reported recently MONICA LEWINSKY’s SAD LONELY LIFE the years have not been too kind on the former poster girl for White House improprieties.
"Clinton" preems on PBS Feb. 20 and 21 as part of their ongoing “American Experience" series.
