White House Scandal At A Glance

The latest developments in the story include:

  • Monica Lewinsky lawyer William Ginsburg will talk tonight with the staff of the Whitewater Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr, sources have told CNN.
  • A senior Clinton Administration told CNN that it was "highly unlikely" that President Clinton will give "anything" in the way of a statement, interview, or press conference regarding the allegations before the State of the Union next Tuesday.
  • Ginsburg says Lewinsky is being "squeezed" by Starr and is a target of the probe. Ginsburg says she could be indicted and charged with one or more crimes. He has had no offer of immunity from prosecution from Starr. Ginsburg says Starr "trying to scare a 24-year-old girl into thinking she is going to jail."
  • Ginsburg confirmed that he was asking Starr to make him an immunity offer he could live with, but said he could not say if Lewinsky would cooperate with Starr.
  • Sources in Kenneth Starr's office say he is not interested in indicting Monica Lewinsky, but in building case against the president and Vernon Jordan.
  • Secretary of State Madeleine Albright says, "I believe the allegations [against Clinton] are completely untrue." Her statement follows cabinet meeting with president.
  • U.S. Ambassador Bill Richardson's office gets subpoena from Kenneth Starr asking for records relating to Lewinsky. Spokeswoman says she expects Richardson will be called to testify before Whitewater grand jury.
  • Paula Jones' attorney, Donovan Campbell, said Jones is "saddened" by allegations. Says they want Monica Lewinsky to tell the truth. Says if true, the allegations will reinforce Jones' attempt to show pattern of past improper conduct on part of the president.
  • President Clinton considering pre-State-of-the-Union news conference to explain in detail his relationship with Monica Lewinsky. But administration source says it is "highly unlikely" that Clinton will give anything in the way of a statement, interview, or press conference on the allegations before next Tuesday.
  • Judge Susan Webber Wright puts off "indefinitely" a deposition Lewinsky was scheduled to give to Paula Jones' attorneys. Her attorney said she intended to invoke her constitutional right against self-incrimination.
  • Sources say Monica Lewinsky visited the White House at least once last month.
  • The president's personal secretary, Betty Currie, and other aides have been subpoenaed to appear before the Whitewater grand jury.
  • In affidavit Monica Lewinsky said, "I have the utmost respect for the president, who always behaved appropriately in my presence. I have never had a sexual relationship with the president. He did not propose that we have a sexual relationship, he did not offer me employment or other benefits in exchange for sexual relationships. He did not deny me employment or other benefits for rejecting a sexual relationship."
