Monica Lewinsky
A 25-year-old former White House intern, Lewinsky is at the heart of the scandal. Lewinsky came to the White House in June 1995 and later became a salaried employee in the White House Office of Legislative Affairs. She says her trysts with Clinton began in late 1995 during the government shutdown. She moved to the Defense Department in April 1996 and left the Pentagon, apparently on good terms, in December 1997. full story
