On Aug. 17, Clinton spent more than four hours testifying to Starr's grand jury on closed-circuit television from the White House. He denied that he perjured himself in the Paula Jones deposition. That evening, he went on national television and admitted that he had an inappropriate relationship with Lewinsky and had misled the American people about it.
