Her name might be known in households across the United States for something that happened during her days as a White House intern, but Monica Lewinsky has never fully moved on from it. In fact, in some ways, she made a career out of being part of former President Bill Clinton's impeachment.

And as a consultant for Impeachment: American Crime Story, Monica proves she isn't shy about diving into the details.

But now, years after the incidents that occurred between the former president and his intern that shocked a nation, what is Monica's job? No, she doesn't work for the White House anymore.

Monica Lewinsky's White House career was short-lived.

In July 1995, Monica began her internship in the Chief of Staff's office at the White House. In Nov. 1995, she began working for the Office of Legislative Affairs. Her employment with the White House continued until April 1996, when she was transferred to the Pentagon.

It was while working at the Pentagon that Monica told co-worker Linda Tripp about her alleged affair with Clinton.

Then, in Dec. 1996, Monica left her position at the Pentagon. She would later return to the White House when she met with Clinton after getting a subpoena to appear in court when former Arkansas state clerk Paula Jones sued Clinton for sexual harassment.

At that point, Monica's career in Washington, D.C. was essentially over. But she remained in the public eye for years after.

Monica also warned of the dangers of shaming victims and the long-term effects it has.

"Shaming women is a weapon of the patriarchy," she told the outlet. "When we shame victims, we are perpetrating the violating behavior they experienced. We are exacerbating their trauma."
