Bill Clinton accuser Gennifer Flowers gave her first interview in six years on Tuesday, responding to the former president’s recent controversial remarks about Monica Lewinsky, the former intern he seduced in the White House.
Asked whether he owed Lewinsky an apology by NBC News, Clinton responded, "No, I do not -- I have never talked to her. But I did say publicly on more than one occasion that I was sorry.”
The response was immediately met with harsh criticism. Clinton later insisted that he got “hot under the collar” over the questions and didn’t give a perfect answer.
Appearing on “The Ingraham Angle” on Fox News, Flowers said Clinton seems to be “afraid” in the current #MeToo environment. However, the most explosive moment of the interview came when she called for Clinton to be "prosecuted."
“My first impression was he’s just not as good a liar anymore as he used to be,” she said. “He’s not on his game where that’s concerned.”
She added, “I think Bill is afraid. You know, I’m advocating that Bill be prosecuted for his sex crimes, just like Harvey Weinstein has been arrested and Bill Cosby is about to sentenced. Why not Bill Clinton?”

Flowers also recalled her relationship with Bill Clinton in the 1970s and explained why she now views it differently than she once did.
“When I first met Bill Clinton, it was when I was sent out on my first story by myself after my training with my cameraman. He came out on to me that night. I told him to knock it off,” she said. “He proceeded to continue to come onto me for three months before I decided that I wanted to have a relationship with him, which at that point was consensual But in today’s standards, and in hindsight, it was definitely sexual harassment.”
Flowers said she felt embarrassed to call it sexual harassment in the beginning, but it “definitely was.”
