Bill Clinton LOVER Breaks Her Silence – “It’s Time…”

Former White House intern Monica Lewinsky is calling for age limits for presidents and declaring they should be blocked from being able to pardon themselves.

Lewinsky gained infamy for having an affair with former President Bill Clinton while he was in office which led to his impeachment for “high crimes and misdemeanors” in 1998. He was acquitted by the Senate.

In an opinion piece for Vanity Fair that was released on Monday, Lewinsky opined on whether presidents should be able to pardon themselves as well as calling their age into question.

“Lewinsky, a political activist and writer, said that her editorial was inspired by recent discussions about whether the US constitution’s 14th amendment barred anyone from holding public office if they engage in an insurrection,” The Guardian reported.

“Though she did not name him, days earlier, Donald Trump moved to appeal a Colorado court ruling that found the former president engaged in insurrection through his incitement of his supporters’ January 6 attack but nevertheless could not be disqualified from seeking the Oval Office again in 2024,” the media outlet added.

Making her political leanings crystal clear, Lewinsky contended that it was “bonkers” that the 14th Amendment “is the only place that addresses the disqualification of a candidate for such behavior.”

“How. Is. This. Possible? Why don’t we have more protections?” Lewinsky wrote for Vanity Fair while describing herself as “a constitutional nerd” who researches amendments.

“She said she was surprised to learn that Congress passed the 27th and most recent constitutional amendment in only 1992. To her, the change was unimpressive – it clarified that proposed congressional raises could not take effect until the following legislative term,” The Guardian further wrote.

“But she later realized that in the century before the so-called compensation amendment, Congress added changes to the constitution ‘every 10 to 20 years or so.’ She said this prompted her to conclude: ‘It’s time. We are overdue for some constitutional upgrades,'” the news outlet explained.

Evidently referring to former President Trump, Lewinsky stated that presidents should not be permitted to pardon themselves.

“Our constitution is not a game of Monopoly,” she commented. “For the head of the executive branch, there should not be a ‘get out of jail free’ card.”

The disgraced former intern also called for term limits and a maximum age to serve in office basing that demand on minimum ages for US House members, senators, and presidents.

“There are arguments to be made for experience,” Lewinsky remarked. “But for elected officials, there is a point at which such qualifications risk being overshadowed by mental calcification and cultural deafness.”

She also wrote that she wants to do away with the Electoral College and enshrine women’s reproductive freedoms, aka abortion, in the Constitution.

“Lewinsky has since earned a master’s degree from the London School of Economics and worked to combat cyberbullying. She has spoken about how she was publicly demonized and humiliated during the scandal that enveloped Clinton’s impeachment, saying she did not have the same power and influence that protected the then-president,” The Guardian recounted.

“I felt like every layer of my skin and my identity were ripped off of me in 1998 and 1999,” Lewinsky told the Guardian in a 2016 interview. “It’s a skinning of sorts … the shame sticks to you like tar.”
