Clinton Scandal

The evidence against President Clinton for sexual misconduct is very strong. There have been too

many scandals that have surrounded his presidency. This forces the citizens of the United States to

deny his plea of innocence. In the spring of 1995, Monica Lewinsky graduated from Lewis and Clark

College. She then started an unpaid internship at the White House. Allegedly in November of that

year, she became involved in a sexual relationship with President Clinton. Shortly after this point

Lewinsky was hired as a full-time White House employee. She left the White House for a public

affairs position at the Pentagon. Here she became friends with Linda Tripp, a former White House

employee, who worked in the same office. During this time President Clinton apparently sent gifts to

Lewinsky, most importantly in the case against him a dress, which she saved as a souvenir, had the

President’s DNA on it.

With things heating up in the Paula Jones case, the President asked Lewinsky to lie about visits to

his office. Turning her back on Lewinsky, Tripp taped telephone conversations between herself and

Lewinsky about the affairs with Mr. Clinton to setup him up. Lewinsky, allegedly quoting Mr. Clinton,

said, “Look them in the eye and deny it.” After anonymous tips are given to a firm connected with the

Paula Jones case, Lewinsky decided to leave the government and find a new job.

On January 7, 1998, Monica Lewinsky signed a sworn affidavit in the Paula Jones sexual harassment

case, stating she did not have an affair with the President. Following this, Linda Tripp brought the

recorded phone conversations to Independent Counsel for the Paula Jones case, Kenneth Starr. With

assistance from the FBI, Tripp wore a wire while Lewinsky lead her step-by-step through her entire

sexual relationship with Mr. Clinton. The following day, Lewinsky gives Tripp points on how to respond

to Paula Jones’ lawyer’s questions. After receiving news of this Starr requested from a federal panel,

the ability of an expansion of his ongoing investigation. The following day, President Clinton, who was

under oath, denied an affair with Lewinsky. Four days later, the story of the tapes became public

knowledge. The President stated in an interview with Jim Lehrer of PBS on the same day, “There is

no improper relationship”(Clinton 1998). He also stated in this interview that he “didn’t ask anybody

not to tell the truth.”(Clinton 1998). In using a double negative, Mr. Clinton could possibly be telling

the people of the United States that he did have an affair, without expanding on it. With all of the

allegations against the President seeming to the public to be against his favor, he will be found guilty

and should be impeached. If this is a conspiracy against him, the conspirator or co-conspirators will

face major indictments.
