After denials in a deposition in January 1998, President Bill Clinton acknowledged his lack of openness about his notorious relationship with a former White House intern.
“Indeed, I did have a relationship with Monica Lewinsky that was not appropriate. In fact it was wrong. It constituted a critical lack in judgment and a personal failure on my part, for which I am solely and completely responsible ... I misled people, including even my wife. I deeply regret that,’’ Clinton said in an address in August of that year.
