[SUPER=@File;]


Legal sources say Monica Lewinsky has turned over to prosecutors a dress that she says bears proof of a sexual encounter with President Clinton.
One source says prosecutors are likely to run forensic tests on the garment.
The dress could become a key piece of physical evidence in the investigation of an alleged presidential affair and coverup.
Meanwhile, senior aides say Mr. Clinton is ready to repeat his denial of any sexual relations with Lewinsky during his videotaped testimony next month.
