Former President Bill Clinton insists he has apologized to former White House intern Monica Lewinsky and will not be asking her for a public apology. On Monday, Clinton appeared on The Today Show where he and best selling author James Patterson were promoting their thriller, The President Is Missing. During the interview, NBC News' Craig Melvin asked Clinton if he apologized to her privately, and if he had any plans on doing so now, 20 years after their affair. Clinton stated,

I do not. I have never talked to her. But I did say, publicly, on more than one occasion, that I was sorry. That's very different. The apology was public.

Melvin also grilled Clinton on if he would've changed the way he handled his affair with Lewinsky today with the #MeToo movement's growing voice in society. According to Clinton,

Well, I don't think it would be an issue. Because people would be using the facts instead of the imagined facts. If the facts were the same today, I wouldn't.

Clinton also weighed in on his impeachment fight where he claims,

I think I did the right thing. I defended the Constitution.
