A new documentary on the impeachment crisis that threatened the Clinton administration is adding a new twist to the two-decade-old scandal.
Fox News’ Stephanie Nolasco reports:
Featuring never-before aired tapes with Clinton confidant Taylor Branch, “The Lost Tapes” is sure to reignite the 20-year-old watershed scandal.
Branch made the recordings on his drive home from the White House late at night after meeting with a frustrated Clinton.
The episode, which is part of the “Lost Tapes” series, utilizes recordings featuring Monica Lewinsky, then 22, first-hand audio tapes of many of those involved in the political soap opera, and rediscovered news footage.
Series producer Tom Jennings told Fox News the recordings offered a fresh perspective on how Lewinsky was suddenly thrust into the media spotlight at such a young age and quickly became a late-night punchline.
Lewinsky, who for years kept quiet about the extramarital affair, recently called the ordeal “a living hell” resulting in being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.
She also said that while what happened to her didn’t qualify as sexual assault it “constituted a gross abuse of power.”
