Clinton ScandalLet American Consumer Counseling Help you Get Out of Debt!Clinton ScandalThe evidence against President Clintonfor sexual misconduct is very strong. There have been too many scandalsthat have surrounded his presidency. This forces the citizens of the UnitedStates to deny his plea of innocence.
In the spring of 1995, Monica Lewinskygraduated from Lewis and Clark College. She then started an unpaid internshipat the White House. Allegedly in November of that year, she became involvedin a sexual relationship with President Clinton. Shortly after this pointLewinsky was hired as a full-time White House employee.
She left the WhiteHouse for a public affairs position at the Pentagon. Here she became friendswith Linda Tripp, a former White House employee, who worked in the sameoffice. During this time President Clinton apparently sent gifts to Lewinsky,most importantly in the case against him a dress, which she saved as asouvenir, had the President’s DNA on it. With things heating up in the Paula Jonescase, the President asked Lewinsky to lie about visits to his office. Turningher back on Lewinsky, Tripp taped telephone conversations between herselfand 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 Jonescase, Lewinsky decided to leave the government and find a new job. On January 7, 1998, Monica Lewinsky signeda sworn affidavit in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case, stating shedid not have an affair with the President. Following this, Linda Trippbrought the recorded phone conversations to Independent Counsel for thePaula Jones case, Kenneth Starr. With assistance from the FBI, Tripp worea wire while Lewinsky lead her step-by-step through her entire sexual relationshipwith Mr.
Clinton. The following day, Lewinsky gives Tripp points on howto respond to Paula Jones’ lawyer’s questions. After receiving news ofthis Starr requested from a federal panel, the ability of an expansionof his ongoing investigation. The following day, President Clinton, whowas under oath, denied an affair with Lewinsky. Four days later, the storyof the tapes became public knowledge.
The President stated in an interviewwith Jim Lehrer of PBS on the same day, “There is no improper relationship”(Clinton1998). He also stated in this interview that he “didn’t ask anybody notto tell the truth. “(Clinton 1998). In using a double negative, Mr.
Clintoncould possibly be telling the people of the United States that he did havean affair, without expanding on it. With all of the allegations againstthe President seeming to the public to be against his favor, he will befound guilty and should be impeached. If this is a conspiracy against him,the conspirator or co-conspirators will face major indictments.
