Bill Clinton, Newt Gingrich ‘bonded’ over affairs: Armey

Washington, Oct 29 (ANI): Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich had ‘bonded’ over the affairs they had had, according to Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey.

Armey claimed that the two developed a “bond” over the affairs they had in office, swapping stories over wine and cigars.

“Clinton found out about the Gingrich affair and called Newt over to the White House for a private meeting between the two of them,” The Politico quoted Armey as saying in an interview with the World Magazine.

“Clinton said, ‘You and I are alike.’ Which meant, shut up about Monica or I’ll start telling your story,” Armey said.

Gingrich, the former Republican speaker of the House, attacked the former Democratic president for his affair with Monica Lewinsky and was later exposed as having had his own affair at the time.

“They had many meetings that we didn’t know about where they’d drink wine and smoke cigars and talk about their girlfriends,” said Armey.

“It’s fascinating; why would you confess to your mortal enemy what you wouldn’t tell your closest friends?” he said.

However, a spokesman for Gingrich, Rick Tyler simply said, “It’s not true.”(ANI)
