Monica Lewinsky tweets cryptic message as Bill Clinton visits Theresa May in Downing Street

Monica Lewinsky posted a cryptic message on Twitter at the same time as ex-President Bill Clinton was meeting Theresa May in Downing Street.

Clinton visited Number 10 this morning to discuss the deadlock in Northern Ireland.

As he left after almost an hour in No 10, he told reporters: “We had a wonderful talk.”

But at almost the same moment as his departure from the meeting, his former intern tweeted: “If i had a dollar for every time i find myself thinking: hypocrisy knows no bounds.”

President Clinton admitted to having an affair with Lewinsky, then a White House intern, in the 1990s.

Ms Lewinsky has said she “deeply regrets” the affair.

In a 2014 essay, she wrote: “Sure, my boss took advantage of me, but I will always remain firm on this point: it was a consensual relationship.

“Any ‘abuse’ came in the aftermath, when I was made a scapegoat in order to protect his powerful position.

“The Clinton administration, the special prosecutor’s minions, the political operatives on both sides of the aisle, and the media were able to brand me. And that brand stuck, in part because it was imbued with power.”

A No 10 spokeswoman stressed the meeting, which lasted about 45 minutes, was “a private meeting”.

She added: “They discussed Northern Ireland and HIV and AIDS treatment.”

Last week, Mrs May’s spokesperson said she was “concerned” by the sexual harassment scandal engulfing Harvey Weinstein.
