5:41 pm
the blueprints and marches off with it, are we being too lenient on xte . >> no, that is why president insisted there be a new management, a new board of directors, someone from u.s. overseeing it. almost like if we were in a weapons negotiation i would have outside people verifying and make sure they are acting how they should be. with safe gaurs in place president is prepared to allow this to move forward, most of xte is buying technology parts from u.s. company. liz: mark thank you. >> thank you. liz: google, liberal silicon valley google, telling workers it will not renew contract with pentagon to work on artificial intelligence. we have new breaking details on

5:46 pm
those comments about monica lewinsky, he lied twice about his affair with monica lewinsky, who is just over 6 years older than chelsea. he is defending himself saying he was agitated during the interview. >> the truth is, i got hot under the collar. because of the way the questions were asked, tn suggesttion that i never apologized, i did, i men imeant it then, now, i apologizd to my family, to monica family and the people, i support the "me too" movement, i have tried to support it in decisions and policies that i have advanced. liz: bringing in bree peyton,
5:47 pm
striking how unprepared bill clinton was for this interview, he never apologized privately. >> i do think that his unpreparedness to the question really says a lot, it is clear you know members of clinton family expect a free pass, and tough questions, and to get royalty treatment from members from press. when it did not happen, he was the shocked. anaghast and did not have answer prepared. this is reasonable in wake of "me too" movement to say let's revisit what happened with monica and rehash that. she was patient zero in that. and he was not able to foresee a question like that, coming his way is really quite shocking. i think you know, the known apology he has been --
5:48 pm
nonapology says a lot. liz: where is outrage with "me too" movement with what happened to monica lo lewinsky. the clinton attacked her reputation, hillary clinton, on record calling her a quote narcissistic loonie, and also first person abused by internet trolls. >> yeah, do think that outrage that we see from feminists is selective. certain women are going to be elevated as victims and others minimized because of who the person who abused or took advantage of them was. i think that is wrong. i think that all women deserve to be believed. their stories of the issues need to be listened to regardless of who was doing it to them. i think certainly this ce is important, and should be raised to level of importance along with wrath.
5:49 pm
when i was growing up, when i did something bad, and got caught and apologized after being caught, my parents would assault it clinton sorry, they would say, i was not actually sorry about what i did, i was sorry that i got caught. and i think that it is clear that is what bill clinton did in 1998, and has been doing for 20 years, he is doubling down and taking that course of action again. liz: bree payson thank you for coming on. >> thank you. liz: to this story, blowing up in silicon valley, big fight at google over pentagon contract. google under pressure from workers banning the pentagon contract to work on artificial intelligence. wait until you hear that artificial intelligence program that pentagon is working on that could save lives from the world, my panel reacting after this.
