Hillary Clinton Tells People Magazine She’s Over The Lewinsky Scandal

Hillary Clinton said she has moved past the Monica Lewinsky scandal in an interview with People magazine hitting newsstands Friday.

“I think everybody needs to look to the future,” Clinton told People, as quoted by the New York Times, adding that she’d “moved on.”

Lewinsky recently broke years of silence on her affair with Bill Clinton in an essay for Vanity Fair. Her re-emergence in the public sphere came soon after Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) raised the specter of the former President’s “predatory behavior” in the context of his wife’s potential 2016 presidential bid.

People also asked Clinton to address documents archived by her late friend Diane Blair, which quoted the former first lady calling Lewinsky a “narcissistic loony toon.”

“I’m not going to comment on what did and didn’t happen,” Clinton responded, according to the Times.

On a lighter note, the magazine got Clinton to share her post-State Department TV binge-watching habits, which go something like this: “‘Oh, my gosh, I can’t believe we can just sit here and do this’ and ‘We’re only going to watch one episode, oh, let’s watch another. Okay, well, we have time, we’re not going anywhere, let’s watch a third.'”

The Clintons, they watch “House of Cards” just like you and I.
