Sources: Clinton Admits Sexual Affair With Flowers

By John King/CNN

flowers

WASHINGTON (AllPolitics, Jan. 22) -- President Bill Clinton in sworn testimony has acknowledged he had a sexual relationship with Gennifer Flowers during his tenure as Arkansas governor, something he flatly denied in the 1992 presidential campaign, sources have told CNN.

Sources familiar with Clinton's deposition in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case say Clinton denied Flowers' claim of a long-running, 12-year affair. But the sources say he acknowledged they did have a sexual relationship.

The revelation is important to the Jones legal team as it tries to prove a pattern of sexual misconduct by the president, and its contention that he punished women who rebuffed his sexual advances and rewarded those who welcomed them. Flowers received a state job during the time period in question.

It is for this same reason that Jones' lawyers want to take sworn testimony from former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, and explore efforts by Washington superlobbyist Vernon Jordan and others to help the young woman get jobs, including a public relations position at the Revlon cosmetics company. Revlon withdrew its offer Wednesday after reports of allegations Lewinsky had an affair with the president.
