((It was an event unprecedented in American history. The President of the United States testifying before a grand jury .beamed across the country and around the world to TV sets and even computers via the Internet. It was a four hour session that included graphic sexual descriptions, admissions, denials and legal wrangling..all in the Monica Lewinsky affair.
CLINTON: THESE ENCOUNTERS DID NOT CONSIST OF SEXUAL INTERCOURSE. THEY DID NOT CONSTITUTE SEXUAL RELATIONSHIPS AS I UNDERSTOOD THAT TERM TO BE DEFINED IN MY JANUARY 17TH, 1998 DEPOSITION. BUT THEY DID INVOLVE INAPPROPRIATE AND INTIMATE CONTACT. Throughout the tape, Kenneth Starr and his prosecutors grilled the President about his relationship with Lewinsky.trying to make a case for perjury and obstruction of justice. But Mister pushed back. CLINTON : BUT IT WAS NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY IN THE FACE OF THEIR REPEATED ILLEGAL LEAKING -- IT WAS NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY TO VOLUNTEER A LOT OF INFORMATION. THERE ARE MANY CASES IN THIS DEPOSITION WHERE I GAVE -- AND KEEP IN MIND -- I PREPARED, I TREATED THEM FRANKLY, WITH RESPECT. The White House was in down play mode.
MIKE MCCURRY, WHITE HOUSE SPOKESPERSON) THE PROCESS THAT HAS LEAD TO THESE EVENTS IS DEEPLY FLAWED. THIS MATERIAL IS IRRELEVANT. The House Judiciary Committee also released, more than 3 thousand pages of backup material from the Starr report. In it, Lewinsky calls the President her "sexual soul mate". The material also contained a picture of the now infamous stained blue dress..which Lewinsky claims Linda Tripp told her to keep. Congressional reaction to the new revelations was predictably partisan.
REP. CHARLES CANADY, R-JUDICIARY COMMITTEE: CUT DC SEN. TOM DASCHLE, MINORITY LEADER: REPUBLICANS SHOULD NEVER HAVE RELEASED THE TAPE. HE SAYS IT'S TOO SOON TO TELL WHETHER THE VIDEOTAPE MAY HELP OR HURT PRESIDENT CLINTON.)
