Monica Lewinsky (portrayed by Beanie Feldstein) was an intern at the White House during Bill Clinton's presidency. In 1995 she entered into an affair with the President, with news breaking of the scandal in January 1998.
Starring Clive Owens as Bill Clinton, Impeachment: American Crime Story chronicles the fallout as Lewinsky confides in Linda Tripp (Sarah Poulson) about her relationship with the President, and the perjury charges and impeachment of December 1998 which ensued.
Lewinsky herself co-produced Impeachment: American Crime Story, setting out to give a voice to the intern who found herself wrapped up in a love affair with Clinton, and her subsequent vilification in the press.
On having Lewinsky aboard, executive producer Sarah Burges said, "The understanding that a real human arrived in Washington [...] all of that was always very important to me to bring forward, and I think to Monica as well."
Following in the footsteps of prior season's success, this promises captivating viewing. Make sure you know how to watch Impeachment: American Crime Story online from anywhere.

Hulu subscribers can also watch FX content: either live with a Hulu with Live TV plan (at $64.99 per month), or wait until a day after broadcast to watch it on Hulu’s $5.99 on-demand only plan. There are a few Hulu plans and prices to choose between; however, only the basic plan provides a whopping 30-day Hulu free trial.
