Impeachment: American Crime Story Episode 2: Monica Lewinsky tells Linda Tripp about her affair

Monica Lewinsky (Beanie Feldstein) gets closer to Linda Tripp (Sarah Paulson), revealing what Linda had suspected: she was having an affair with Bill Clinton (Clive Owen) on the second episode of Impeachment: American Crime Story.

Last week’s premiere set up how Monica and Linda first met, with Monica sent to work at the Department of Defense, just as Linda was sent there after working in the White House.

Tuesday night’s episode, entitled The President Kissed Me, reveals Monica already trusts Linda enough to talk about the affair, which would prove to be her downfall.

Monica is told that they will be working with people who are running the country, as he tells them to ‘please be professional.’

Monica is sent to deliver something to George Stephanopoulos, when she meets President Clinton for the first time.

They make small talk about where they’re from, their first time visiting the White and other things when Monica admits she’s nervous because she has, ‘a huge crush on you.’

President Clinton takes her badge and says, ‘This could be a problem.’

She returns back to her condo at the Watergate, waking up her mother, telling her, ‘The President kissed me,’ but she doesn’t believe her.

While Clinton, who was in his second term as President at the time, denied the allegations at first, more and more evidence came to light.

Such evidence included a semen-stained blue dress that Lewinsky had been encouraged to save without cleaning, by her one-time friend Linda Tripp. 

While Clinton continued to deny the affair, he ultimately came clean in August 1998, which lead to his impeachment.

Clinton was ultimately acquitted on both impeachment charges, and he ultimately served out the remainder of his term.
