White House Scandal At A Glance: Jan. 25

Latest developments:

  • It's premature to talk about impeachment proceedings against President Bill Clinton, but if it is proven that Clinton had sex with a White House intern, he should resign, said Rep. Henry Hyde, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.
  • Clinton political adviser James Carville vowed "a war" will be waged between Clinton friends and prosecutor Kenneth Starr over the "scuzzy, slimy tactics" used in the probe of the president's relationship with Monica Lewinsky.
  • Lewinsky is "dying" to tell about her relationship with Clinton and she will "absolutely, unequivocally" tell the full story, but she must first be given immunity, according to her lawyer, William Ginsburg.
  • A new CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll shows that 71 percent of Americans think it would be better for the country if Clinton remained in office. Meanwhile, his favorability rating rebounds slightly.
  • Ginsburg said that despite telephone negotiations Friday and Saturday with Starr's staff, there was no agreement on immunity, but Ginsburg said he was "very hopeful that we will continue those today."
  • Ginsburg said FBI agents, in a Thursday search of Lewinsky's apartment, took "some hatpins, some hats, some T-shirts, her computer, her black and blue pantsuits and dresses, a book of poetry that was signed in an inconspicuous way by the president."
  • Ginsburg, on ABC's "This Week," said Starr told him last week that they were interested in "a dress that might be forensically important in terms of DNA evidence." Ginsburg said he did not know if such a dress existed.
  • Sources tell CNN that the president acknowledged a "special" relationship with Lewinsky but denied a sexual relationship. The sources say he acknowledged calling her but says he did so because he heard she was despondent and he was trying to help, and he asked Vernon Jordan to help her if he could.
  • First lady Hillary Clinton is still taking charge of strategy on the White House response to the allegations, advising Clinton defenders who appeared on weekend talk shows.
  • Former White House staffer Linda Tripp, whose taped conversations with Lewinsky set off allegations of a White House sex scandal, attempted to write a tell-all White House memoir two years ago, New Yorker magazine reports.
  • Ann Lewis, the White House communications director, appeared on "Larry King Live" Saturday night to say that Clinton "answered four times in the first two days" of the alleged sex scandal the two most important questions: He "answered very directly" that he did not have a sexual relationship with Lewinsky and that he did not tell anyone to lie about it.
