Lynne Cheney "Wonders" If Clintons Planted Monica Lewinsky's 'Vanity Fair' Story

Could the Monica Lewinisky story in Vanity Fair magazine have been planted by Bill and Hillary Clinton? That's the stunning claim from Lynne Cheney, wife of former Vice President Dick Cheney.

Lynne said on Fox News, "I really wonder if this isn't an effort on the Clintons' part to get this story out of the way. Would Vanity Fair be publishing anything that Hillary Clinton didn't want in Vanity Fair?"

As everyone knows, Hillary is eying a presidential run in 2016, and her husband's 1998 liaison with Lewinsky is sure to be raked up. So, could Lewinsky’s story be a pre-emptive strike engineered by the Clintons?

On The View, Barbara Walters challenged Lynne Cheney’s claim, but she stuck by her guns.

Walters said, “You think the Clintons might have pushed the Monica Lewinsky Vanity Fair story."

Lynne said, "I think it's definitely to Mrs. Clinton's advantage to have this story come out now rather than later."

Walters responded, "How about not at all?"

Lynne said, "I think that you have to worry that it would happen. So, you inoculate yourself by having it come out early."

Lewinsky is saying the notoriety of her affair with the president made it hard for her to get any kind of career going. Now that she's back in the spotlight as her 41st birthday approaches, can Monica Lewinsky turn her life around?

INSIDE EDITION asked career coach Roy Cohen what advice he would give Lewinsky. He said "She is just a magnet for P.R. She would be a brilliant P.R. person. I admire her for the steps she has taken and I just caution her to be mindful that there will still be a lot of people out there that are going to shoot arrows at her."
