The Monica Lewinsky sex scandal was a controversy that saw president Bill Clinton be impeached in by the U.S. House of Representatives in 1998. Clinton's impeachment was then acquitted after a lengthy senate trial. The sexual scandal excited the world's media and made Monica Lewinski into a minor celebrity that was famous for being famous.
Clinton was found to have lied about his sexual relations with Lewinski.

The lie that Bill Clinton told to the public was ..

"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." Bill Clinton on Monica Lewinski

Bill Clinton was impeached on December 19, 1998 by the House of Representatives on grounds of perjury to a grand jury, by a 228 to 206 vote, and obstruction of justice by a 221 to 212 vote. Bill Clinton became only the second American President to be impeached.
On January 7, 1999, the Senate began impeachment proceedings, ultimately acquitting the President on all charges on February 12.

Bill Clinton was charged with perjury or lying under oath about his sexual relations with the 22 year old White House intern, Monica Lewinsky to gain advantage in a sexual harassment case brought by Paula Jones, a case he later settled by paying Paula Jones $850,000. A Federal judge found Bill Clinton also to be in contempt of court for lying in a deposition and ordered him to pay a $90,000 fine. This contempt citation led to disbarment proceedings similar to Richard Nixon's. To avoid these proceedings, Clinton surrendered his law license.

Hillary Rodham Clinton forgave her husband for his sexual infidelities and Clinton remain a married couple.
