WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Clinton's response to 81 questions posed by the House Judiciary Committee were sent to Capitol Hill on Friday afternoon and were made public minutes later.
No surprises were found in a first review of the president's responses. He stood by previous statements that his grand jury testimony on Monica Lewinsky "was not false or misleading."
He said the furor over his alleged attempts to conceal his relationship with the former White House intern "long ago ceased to be primarily a legal or political issue," and added, "I hope these answers will contribute to a speedy and fair resolution to this matter."
In a statement David Kendall, the President's attorney said, "The President has responded to the Chairman's questions in good faith."
The answers have not been signed by the president, but a signature page will be sent to Congress after President Clinton and his family return to the White House from Camp David late Friday afternoon or early evening Friday.
