Bill Clinton says cheating on his wife with his secretary was to relieve pressure.


In a new documentary, ex U.S President Bill Clinton, has said that his extramarital affair with his secretary, Monica S. Lewinsky - that led to his impeachment in 1998 - was a way of “managing my anxieties.”
.
.
When asked by the director, Nanette Burstein, why he engaged in an affair and whether he weighed the risks, “Nobody sits down and thinks, ‘I think I’ll take a really irresponsible risk,’” Mr. Clinton says. .
.
“It’s bad for my family, bad for my country, bad for the people who work with me.” He says that he was under enormous pressure, but that his actions were inexcusable.
.
.
“You feel like you’re staggering around — you’ve been in a 15-round prizefight that was extended to 30 rounds, and here’s something that’ll take your mind off it for a while.
.
.
Everybody’s life has pressures and disappointments and terrors, fears of whatever, things I did to manage my anxieties for years,” he added.
