Lewinsky Attorney Says His 'Media Blitz' Over

Lewinsky, left, with attorney Ginsburg after talks with her lawyers on Thursday  

WASHINGTON (AllPolitics, Feb. 1) -- The attorney for former White House intern Monica Lewinsky made the rounds of five television talk shows on Sunday but said this would be the last time for the foreseeable future.

"This is the end of my media blitz," Bill Ginsburg said upon arriving for a CNN interview. "This is it, folks," he told "Fox News Sunday." "This thing has gotten out of hand. It's enough."

Ginsburg told CNN he still hopes for immunity for his client.

"Immunity would be very good," Ginsburg told CNN's "Late Edition," "because then she could tell her story in a cathartic way completely and without any fear or anxiety that she was going to be jailed or charged or put into jeopardy."


Ginsburg said he is not in "intense negotiations" with independent counsel Ken Starr's office, which is investigating allegations that President Clinton had a sexual relationship with Lewinsky and then urged her to lie about it. Clinton has strongly denied both allegations.

"I'm waiting for them to call and make me an offer, if indeed they ever make one," Ginsburg said.

Ginsburg said he will travel with Lewinsky this week to Los Angeles, where Lewinsky will visit with her father.

On CBS' "Face The Nation," Ginsburg said his client would be willing to submit to a polygraph test if she's granted immunity.

"If she is given full immunity ... in order to verify that she's telling the truth, which I'm sure she is, I would be happy to submit her to a polygraph examination," he said. "Lie detector's not a good word because they can't detect lies."


On NBC's "Meet the Press," Ginsburg also said he hoped the media coverage surrounding the allegations would subside.

"It will go away, it'll pass. The president will remain in office. He'll do a good job. We'll all hopefully have a sound economy, keep our jobs, and I think everybody's going to be fine," Ginsburg said.

But Ginsburg admitted on "Fox News Sunday" that he doesn't know all the details behind the allegations.

"No, I don't know the whole truth," Ginsburg said.
