On August 17, 1998, President Bill Clinton (above) become the first sitting
president to testify before the Office of Independent Council as the subject
of a grand-jury investigation.

The testimony came after a four-year investigation into Clinton and his wife
Hillary’s alleged involvement in several scandals, including accusations of
sexual harassment, potentially illegal real-estate deals and suspected
“cronyism” involved in the firing of
White House travel-agency personnel.

The independent prosecutor, Kenneth Starr, then uncovered an affair
between Clinton and a White House intern named
Monica Lewinsky,
when questioned about the affair, Clinton denied it, which led Starr to
charge the president with perjury and obstruction of justice, which in
turn prompted his testimony on August 17.

Former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones (left) sued President
Bill Clinton for sexual harassment when he was governor, alleging
he exposed himself to her in a hotel room in 1991. The Jones suit,
which went all the way to the Supreme Court, was ultimately
dismissed by a judge on the grounds Jones could not show
damages. While it was on appeal, President Clinton agreed to      
an out-of-court settlement on this day in 1998. He paid $850,000 
without admitting liability.
