Shortly after midnight on Jan. 21, 1998, washingtonpost.com published a Washington Post article reporting that Whitewater independent counsel Kenneth Starr had expanded his investigation of President Clinton. Starr, The Post reported, was now examining whether Clinton and his close friend Vernon Jordan encouraged Monica Lewinsky, a 24-year-old former White House intern, to lie to lawyers in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case about whether she had an affair with the president.
