Friday 04:15 GMT

Tarana Burke, the founder of the #MeToo movement, said the affair between President Clinton and White House intern Monica Lewinsky was "absolutely an abuse of power." Burke gave an interview to The Root days after Hillary Clinton told CBS 'Sunday Morning" she did not find her husband's actions to be an abuse of power.
