The Starr investigation: At a glance
In damning detail, Independent Counsel Ken Starr's report outlines a case for impeaching President Bill Clinton on 11 grounds, including perjury, obstruction of justice, witness-tampering and abuse of power. The report offers lurid details of the sexual relationship between Clinton and ex-White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
The House approves the public release, via the Internet, of Starr's report about possible impeachable offenses by President Bill Clinton. The vote was 363-63.
President Clinton hosts his annual prayer breakfast, saying he agreed with critics who said he was not contrite enough in his Aug. 17 speech when he first publicly confessed his extramarital affair with Monica Lewinsky. "I don't think there is a fancy way to say that I have sinned," Clinton said.
The White House releases a preliminary rebuttal to Starr's report, characterizing President Clinton's adulterous affair with Monica Lewinsky as a "personal failing ... not an abuse of power."
