Impeachment Didn’t Tell You About The True Story

The 10-episode show explores a variety of characters central to the scandal that finally exploded in January 1998. But on a show about an affair that includes a sexual relationship between the president and a younger subordinate, there is one glaring thing missing that the show doesn’t portray: the nature of their sexual interactions, or the implication of it. The series doesn’t really hint at any of that going on.

On the show, actress Beanie Feldstein, who portrays Lewinsky, shares flirty looks, touches, and kisses with Clinton, played by actor Clive Owen (via IMDb). In reality, there was a lot more going on than that. But it is not clear to the viewer the exact details, as the show barely implies it. One can only assume that the scenes Feldstein and Owen filmed alone are meant to demonstrate the beginning of what would eventually happen when the two were out of sight of other White House staffers. However, if one were to only go by the show, you’d think otherwise and not really know how many times they engaged in a physical affair. The true story was that Lewinsky had about nine sexual encounters with Clinton between 1995 and 1997, most of which occurred in the Oval Office (via The Washington Post).
