Storyboard Text

  • I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky
  • The affair has been over since May 1997. In an attempt to avoid testifying in the Paula Jones case, Monica signs a sworn affidavit in January the following year denying an affair with President Clinton.
  • Linda Tripp offers 20 hours of recorded conversations with Lewinsky to Kenneth Starr, an investigator in Clinton's Whitewater case. Starr expands his investigation to the Clinton-Lewinsky affair. Clinton denies under oath to having an affair with Ms. Lewinsky.
  • Rumors begin to spread after news stories and articles are published about the alleged affairs. President Clinton invites a media audience to the White House to publicly deny the scandal.
  • In July of 1998, Monica Lewinsky accepts an immunity deal from the prosecution in exchange for her honest testimony. Clinton testifies in front of the Grand Jury in August, admitting "inappropriate intimate contact" with Lewinsky.
  • Kenneth Starr shares his full report with Congress in September 1998, which includes 11 possible grounds for impeachment. The report goes public as well as several pieces of evidence, including Clinton's testimony video tape and transcripts of Lewinsky's phone conversations.
  • In December 1998 the House approves two of the four proposed articles of impeachment. The impeachment investigation ends in February 1999 when the Senate voted 50 for and 50 against the president. Without a 2/3 majority vote needed to prosecute the president, Clinton is acquitted on all charges.
