HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON. Typed Quotation signed: "Hillary R. Cl", 1p, 5¾x9. An excerpt from her book, Living History, explaining how President Clinton told her the truth of the Lewinsky affair, on a sheet of paper signed by Mrs. Clinton. In full: " 'My husband may have his faults, but he has never lied to me.' Early the next morning, Saturday, August 15 , Bill woke me up just as he had done months before. This time he didn't sit by the bed, but paced back and forth. He told me for the first time that the situation was much more serious than he had previously acknowledged. He now realized he would have to testify that there had been an inappropriate intimacy. He told me that what happened between them had been brief and sporadic. He couldn't tell me seven months ago, he said, because he was too ashamed to admit it and he knew how angry and hurt I would be. I could hardly breathe. Gulping for air, I started crying and yelling at him, 'What do you mean? What are you saying? Why did you lie to me?' I couldn't believe he would do anything to endanger our marriage and our family. I was dumbfounded, heartbroken and outraged that I'd believed him at all."
On October 11, 1975, in Fayetteville, Arkansas, 29-year-old William Jefferson Clinton married 27-year-old Hillary Diane Rodham. Their daughter, Chelsea, was born in 1980. Bill Clinton served as Governor of Arkansas from 1979-1981 and 1983-1992 when he was elected 42nd President of the United States. He served two terms, from 1993-2001. On January 3, 2001, First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton was sworn in as U.S. Senator from New York, her Washington residence still being The White House. For 18 days, she was both First Lady and U.S. Senator.
At the White House on the morning of January 26, 1998, President Clinton ended a televised meeting with the White House media thusly: "Now, I have to go back to work on my State of the Union speech, and I worked on it till pretty late last night. But I want to say one thing to the American people, I want you to listen to me, I'm going to say this again: I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky. I never told anybody to lie, not a single time, never. These allegations are false. And I need to go back to work for the American people. Thank you." President Clinton's extramarital affair with 21-year-old Monica Lewinsky, a White House intern, ultimately resulted in his impeachment.
On December 18, 1998, the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Clinton on two articles of impeachment, charging him with lying under oath to a federal grand jury and obstructing justice. On February 12, 1999, President Clinton was found not guilty on both counts. Fine condition.
