Was Monica Responding To Rand Paul’s Comments?

From CNS News:

Lynne Cheney: ‘Vanity Fair’ Helping Hillary Get Lewinsky Issue ‘Out of the Way’

By Susan Jones | May 7, 2014

(CNSNews.com) – Lynne Cheney, wife of former Vice President Dick Cheney, believes it’s no accident that Monica Lewinsky is back in the headlines, almost 20 years after her White House affair with President Bill Clinton. "I really wonder if this isn’t an effort on the Clintons’ part to get that story out of the way.

Would Vanity Fair publish anything about Monica Lewinsky that Hillary Clinton didn’t want in Vanity Fair?" Mrs. Cheney said Tuesday during an appearance on Fox News’s O’Reilly Factor.

Of course, they wouldn’t. No more than any other mainstream news outlet would every publish anything the Clinton don’t want.

Cheney noted that the magazine article on Lewinsky — titled "Shame and Survival" — comes as Hillary Clinton is gearing up for a presidential run: "Getting it out of the way so we can say one more time it’s old news seems to me like a strategy or a tactic, perhaps."

CNS neglects to mention that Ms. Cheney also pointed out that Rand Paul had been bringing up Monicagate earlier this year. And it sure does seem like Monica might have been responding to Rand Paul’s comments.

Though CNS notes that Monica even used some of the same wording that Paul used. All of which supports the theory that the Clintons were behind Monica coming forward now.

In the article, Monica writes: "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." …

Earlier this year, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) raised the Lewinsky scandal on NBC’s "Meet the Press." “The media seems to have given President Clinton a pass on this," Paul said in the January interview.

"He took advantage of a girl who was 20 years old and an intern in his office. There is no excuse for that, and that is predatory behavior, and it should be something we shouldn’t want to associate with people who would take advantage of a young girl in his office…And then they have the gall to stand up and say Republicans are having a war on women?”

But Monica says Bill didn’t take advantage of her. Even though he got her to perjure herself in a sexual harassment trial.

    Congrats to Rand Paul for calling out Bill Clinton, democrats, and the ‘war on women.’

    This should be the template for every Republican politician, in which they make it a point to criticize Bill and Ted Kennedy, and Robert Bryd, and John Kennedy, and Rev. Sharpton/Jackson for all their KKK activities and abuse of women.

    It is probably too little too late, but at least Rand got some steam behind him, and look at the result? The democrats had to scramble like mad to re-invent the message, pay off Monica in some way perhaps, arm-twist some magazine to print what the Clinton lawyers told them to print, and get the media to forget all the gory details of the affair, and piddle it down to “It was consensual!” (wink-wink, it’s none of your business!)

    It’s really no wonder Republicans lose the arguments for or against something, as they are unwilling to argue about it in the first place, while democrats make political hay out of everything.
