Lynne Cheney: Lewinsky Article Allows Clintons to Deal With Topic Before 2016
Cheney discussed Benghazi and how it may affect a possible presidential run by Hillary Clinton.
“If she wants to be a leader, she needs to take responsibility for what happened on her watch,” she said, adding that the Benghazi attack is just one of many foreign policy disasters during Clinton’s time as secretary of state.
Cheney told guest host Laura Ingraham that the truth tends to get distorted when it comes to the Clintons.
This month, Monica Lewinsky broke her silence on her affair with former President Bill Clinton in a Vanity Fair article.
Cheney wondered if the article was an effort by the Clintons to get the story out of the way before the 2016 election. “Would Vanity Fair publish anything about Monica Lewinsky that Hillary Clinton didn’t want in Vanity Fair?” she theorized.

She argued that the article "seems so timed" as a way for the Clintons to deal with the subject before a potential presidential campaign.
Cheney said she has a lot of "empathy and sympathy" for Lewinsky, believing that she has been "suffering" since the scandal.
