What Hilary Clinton did when she learned of Bill's affair

Hillary Clinton "hit her husband Bill in the head with a book" after learning about his affair with Monica Lewinsky, a new book alleges.

The claims were made in The Residence, billed as a behind-the-scenes history of the White House.

White House staff reportedly told journalist Kate Andersen Brower they had come into the couple's bedroom to find blood stained bedding and that they were "pretty sure" Hillary had "clocked him [Bill]with a book" upon learning of his infidelity.

Andersen Brower notes: "There were at least 20 books on the bedside table for his betrayed wife to choose from, including the Bible."

Bill Clinton's affair with his then intern Monica Lewinsky became public in 1998.

Neither Bill nor Hillary have responded publicly to the claims and a spokesperson for Hillary did not respond to questions from i100.co.uk about the claims.
