  • A memo from a top GOP pollster advises congressional Republicans not to "politicize" the allegations, advising, "It would be a grave error to be seen as taking political advantage of such an unfortunate situation."

  • Lewinsky is due to give a deposition in the Jones case on Friday but is expected to invoke her Constitutional right against self-incrimination.
  • Revlon cosmetics firm said it had offered Lewinsky a public relations job at the recommendation of Clinton friend Vernon Jordan but has withdrawn the offer.
