President Bill Clinton pauses as he apologizes to the U.S. on Dec. 11, 1998 for his conduct in the Monica Lewinsky affair.

On December 15, 1998, the U.S. House of Representatives’ Committee on
the Judiciary releases a 265-page report recommending the
impeachment
of President
Bill Clinton for high crimes and misdemeanors.     

The subsequent impeachment proceedings were the culmination of a slew
of scandals involving the president and first lady Hillary Clinton. 

Added to the mix were stories of Clinton’s extra-marital affairs and a sexual harassment claim filed against him. An independent counsel, Kenneth Starr,
was appointed to investigate the Paula Jones sexual harassment case and
the ensuing investigation led Starr to
Monica Lewinsky, a former White
House intern who had been accused of having an affair with Clinton.

On December 11, 1978 half a dozen masked robbers raided the Lufthansa
Airlines cargo building at JFK Airport in New York, making off with more
than
$5 million in cash ($21 million in today’s dollars) and almost $1
million in jewelry. To this day,
the Lufthansa heist, as it is known, is
considered one of the greatest in U.S. history. The plan was dreamed
up by Peter Gruenewald, a Lufthansa cargo worker at JFK Airport
. The 
heist was dramatized in the classic mafia film "Goodfellas."
