New allegations today against the President- the most serious ever-
The accusations are essentially perjury and obstruction of justice.
They're made in a series of secretly recorded audio tapes of a woman who claims to have had an affair with Bill Clinton.
The woman is Monica Lewinski- who at the time was a 21 year old White House intern.
As Scott Pelley reports, the president denies the affair.

((BILL CLINTON: I'M GONNA COOPERATE, I DIDN'T ASK ANYBODY NOT TO TELL THE TRUTH THERE IS NO IMPROPER RELATIONSHIP THE ALLEGATIONS I HAVE READ ARE NOT TRUE. This story begins with the Paula Jones sexual harrassment case. In the investigation Lewinski swore in a deposition she never had an affair with the president. But that is not what she was telling white house co-worker, Linda Tripp. Tripp has been recording conversations with Lewinsky in which lewinsky admits the affair and says she was pressured to lie.
Two weeks ago Tripp took the tapes to white water independent council kenneth starr who authorized tripp to make more recordings.
CBS News has learned that the FBI set up surveillance of lewinski at this washington area hotel last week. Tripp was wearing a microphone and a tape recorder strapped to her leg. The meeting in the bar was photographed by several under cover FBI agents.
Starr, the independent counsel authorized the surveillance after hearing parts of 17 audio tapes of Lewinski that Tripp recorded over the phone. A source familiar with the tapes tells CBS News Lewinski is often heard in tears pleading with tripp to help her cover up the alleged affair. Lewinski allegedly says the president wants her to deny any relationship. CBS News has learned Lewinski complains Mr. Clinton was quote-- "in denial" about the Paula Jones case. The women agree he should settle so they don't have to testify in the jones case. Tripp says if she is ever asked about whether Lewinksi had an affair she would have to tell the truth. Lewinski begs her not to. In tears, Lewinski suggests the women are like family. Wouldn't Tripp be willing to lie for her family? Tripp says no.
On Saturday Mr. Clinton gave a sworn deposition in the Paula Jones case. sources say the president's attorney Bob Bennett objected to questioning about Lewinski and introduced into evidence a sworn affidavit from Lewinski denying any relationship with Mr. Clinton, but the judge insisted Mr. Clinton answer the questions and, under oath, he denied any affair. he repeated the denial today.))

Lewinski is due to be deposed in the Jones case Friday.
CBS News has learned she plans to take the fifth and refuse to comment on whether there was an affair.
The allegatons have prompted some talk of a possible impeachment.
According to the head of the House Judiciary Committee, charges of perjury and obstruction of justice are felonies-
According to the constitition that is grounds for impeachment.
