21. Do you admit or deny that you gave false and misleading testi

mony under oath when you stated before the grand jury on August 17, 1998, that you did know prior to January 17, 1998, that Monica Lewinsky had been subpoenaed to testify in the

case of Jones v. Clinton? Reponse to Request No. 21

As my testimony on January 17 reflected, and as I testified on August 17, 1998, I knew prior to January 17, 1998, that Ms. Lewinsky had been subpoenaed to testify in Jones v. Clinton. App. at 487. That testimony was not false and misleading. 22. Do you admit or deny that on or about December 28, 1997, you

had a discussion with Monica Lewinsky at the White House re

garding her moving to New York? Reponse to Request No. 22

When I met with Ms. Lewinsky on December 28, 1997, I knew she was planning to move to New York, and we discussed her move. 23. Do you admit that on or about December 28, 1997, you had a

discussion with Monica Lewinsky at the White House in which you suggested to her that she move to New York soon because by moving to New York, the lawyers representing Paula Jones

in the case of Jones v. Clinton may not contact her? Reponse to Request No. 23

Ms. Lewinsky had decided to move to New York well before the end of December 1997. By December 28, Ms. Lewinsky had been subpoenaed. I did not suggest that she could avoid tesifying in the Jones v. Clinton case by moving to New York. 24. Do you admit or deny that on or about December 28, 1997, you

had a discussion with Monica Lewinsky at the White House regarding gifts you had given to Ms. Lewinsky that were subpoe

naed in the case of Jones v. Clinton? 25. Do you admit or deny that on or about December 28, 1997, you

expressed concern to Monica Lewinsky about a hatpin you had given to her as a gift which had been subpoenaed in the case

of Jones v. Clinton? Response to Request Nos. 24 and 25

As I told the grand jury, “Ms. Lewinsky said something to me like, what if they ask me about the gifts you've given me,” App. at 495, but I do not know whether that conversation occurred on December 28, 1997, or earlier. Ibid. Whenever this conversation occurred, I testified, I told her “that if they asked her for gifts, she'd have to give them whatever she had * * *” App. at 495. I simply was not concerned about the fact that I had given her gifts. See App. at 495–98. Indeed, I gave her additional gifts on December 28, 1997. I also told the grand jury that I do not recall Ms. Lewinsky telling me that the subpoena specifically called for a hat pin that I had given her. App. at 496.

26. Do you admit or deny that on or about December 28, 1997, you

discussed with Betty Currie gifts previously given by you to

Monica Lewinsky? 27. Do you admit or deny that on or about December 28, 1998, you

requested, instructed, suggested to or otherwise discussed with Betty Currie that she take possession of gifts previously given

to Monica Lewinsky by you? Reponse to Request Nos. 26 and 27

I do not recall my conversation with Ms. Currie on or about December 28, 1997, about gifts I had previously given to Ms. Lewinsky. I never told Ms. Currie to take possession of gifts I had given Ms. Lewinsky; I understand Ms. Currie has stated that Ms. Lewinsky called Ms. Currie to ask her to hold a box. See Supp. at 531. 28. Do you admit or deny that you had a telephone conversation

on January 6, 1998, with Vernon Jordan during which you discussed Monica Lewinsky's affidavit, yet to be filed, in the case

of Jones v. Clinton? Reponse to Request No. 28

White House records included in the OIC Referral reflect that I spoke to Mr. Jordan on January 6, 1998. Supp. at 1886. I do not recall whether we discussed Ms. Lewinsky's affidavit during a telephone call on that date. 29. Do you admit or deny that you had knowledge of the fact that

Monica Lewinsky executed for filing an affidavit in the case of

Jones v. Clinton on January 7, 1998? 30. Do you admit or deny that on or about January 7, 1998, you

had a discussion with Vernon Jordan in which he mentioned that Monica Lewinsky executed for filing an affidavit in the

case of Jones v. Clinton? Reponse to Request Nos. 29 and 30

As I testified to the grand jury, “I believe that (Mr. Jordan) did notify us” when she signed her affidavit. App. at 525. While I do not recall the timing, as I told the grand jury, I have no reason to doubt Mr. Jordan's statement that he notified me about the affidavit around January 7, 1998. Ibid. 31. Do you admit or deny that on or about January 7, 1998, you

had a discussion with Vernon Jordan in which he mentioned
that he was assisting Monica Lewinsky in finding a job in New

York?
Reponse to Request No. 31

I told the grand jury that I was aware that Mr. Jordan was assisting Ms. Lewinsky in her job search in connection with her move to New York. App. at 526. I have no recollection as to whether Mr. Jordan discussed it with me on or about January 7, 1998.

32. Do you admit or deny that you viewed a copy of the affidavit

executed by Monica Lewinsky on January 7, 1998, in the case

of Jones v. Clinton, prior to your deposition in that case? 33. Do you admit or deny that you had knowledge that your coun

sel viewed a copy of the affidavit executed by Monica Lewinsky on January 7, 1998, in the case of Jones v. Clinton prior to

your deposition in that case? Response to Request Nos. 32 and 33

I do not believe I saw this affidavit before my deposition, although I cannot be absolutely sure. The record indicates that my counsel had seen the affidavit at some time prior to the deposition. See Dep. at 54. 34. Do you admit or deny that you had knowledge that any facts

or assertions contained in the affidavit executed by Monica Lewinsky on January 7, 1998, in the case of Jones v. Clinton

were not true? 40. Do you admit or deny that during your deposition in the case

of Jones v. Clinton on January 17, 1998, you affirmed that the facts or assertions stated in the affidavit executed by Monica

Lewinsky on January 7, 1998, were true? Response to Request Nos. 34 and 40

I was asked at my deposition in January about two paragraphs of Ms. Lewinsky's affidavit. With respect to Paragraph 6, I explained the extent to which I was able to attest to its accuracy. Dep. at 202–03.

With respect to Paragraph 8, I stated in my deposition that it was true. Dep. at 204. In my August 17th grand jury testimony, I sought to explain the basis for that deposition answer: "I believe at the time that she filled out this affidavit, if she believed that the definition of sexual relationship was two people having intercourse, then this is accurate.” App. at 473. 35. Do you admit or deny that you viewed a copy of the affidavit

executed by Monica Lewinsky on January 7, 1998, in the case of Jones v. Clinton, at your deposition in that case on January

17, 1998? 36. Do you admit or deny that you had knowledge that your coun

sel viewed a copy of the affidavit executed by Monica Lewinsky on January 7, 1998, in the case of Jones v. Clinton, at your

deposition in that case on January 17, 1998? Response to Request Nos. 35 and 36

I know that Mr. Bennett saw Ms. Lewinsky's affidavit during the deposition because he read portions of it aloud at the deposition. See Dep. at 202. I do not recall whether I saw a copy of Ms. Lewinsky's affidavit during the deposition.

37. Do you admit or deny that on or about January 9, 1998, you

received a message from Vernon Jordan indicating that Monica

Lewinsky had received a job offer in New York? Response to Request No. 37

At some time, I learned that Ms. Lewinsky had received a job offer in New York. However, I do not recall whether I first learned it in a message from Mr. Jordan or whether I learned it on that date. 38. Do you admit or deny that between January 9, 1998, and Janu

ary 15, 1998, you had a conversation with Erskine Bowles in the Oval Office in which you stated that Monica Lewinsky re

ceived a job offer and had listed John Hilley as a reference? 39. Do you admit or deny that you asked Erskine Bowles if he

would ask John Hilley to give Ms. Lewinsky a positive job rec

ommendation? Response to Request Nos. 38 and 39

As I testified to the grand jury, I recall at some point talking to Mr. Bowles "about whether Monica Lewinsky could get a reeommendation that was not negative from the Legislative Affairs Office,” or that “was at least neutral,” although I am not certain of the date of the conversation. App. at 562–64. To suggest that I told Mr. Bowles that Ms. Lewinsky had received a job offer and had listed John Hilley as a reference is, as I testified, a "little bit inconsistent with my memory. App. at 564. It is possible, as I also indicated, that she had identified Mr. Hilley as her supervisor on her resume and in that respect had already listed him as a reference. Ibid. 40. For the Response to Request No. 40, see Response to Request

No. 34, et al., supra. 41. As to each, do you admit or deny that you gave the following

gifts to Monica Lewinsky at any time in the past? a. A lithograph b. A hatpin c. A large “Black Dog" canvas bag d. A large “Rockettes” blanket e. A pin of the New York skyline f. A box of “cherry chocolates” g. A pair of novelty sunglasses h. A stuffed animal from the “Black Dog” i. A marble bear's head j. A London pin k. A shamrock pin 1. An Annie Lennox compact disc

m. Davidoff cigars Response to Request No. 41

In my deposition in the Jones case, I testified that I "certainly * * * could have” given Ms. Lewinsky a hat pin and that I gave her "something” from the Black Dog. Dep. at 75–76. In my grand

jury testimony, I indicated that in late December 1997, I gave Ms. Lewinsky a Canadian marble bear's head carving, a Rockettes blanket, some kind of pin, and a bag (perhaps from the Black Dog) to hold these objects. App. at 484–487. I also stated that I might have given her such gifts as a box of candy and sunglasses, although I did not recall doing so, and I specifically testified that I had given Ms. Lewinsky gifts on other occasions. App. at 487. I do not remember giving her the other gifts listed in Question 41, although I might have. As I have previously testified, I receive a very large number of gifts from many different people, sometimes several at a time. I also give a very large number of gifts. I gave Ms. Lewinsky gifts, some of which I remember and some of which I do not. 42. Do you admit or deny that when asked on January 17, 1998,

in your deposition in the case of Jones v. Clinton if you had ever given gifts to Monica Lewinsky, you stated that you did not recall, even though you actually had knowledge of giving

her gifts in addition to gifts from the “Black Dog”? Response to Request No. 42

In my grand jury testimony, I was asked about this same statement. I explained that my full response was “ I don't recall. Do you know what they were?” By that answer, I did not mean to suggest that I did not recall giving gifts; rather, I meant that I did not recall what the gifts were, and I asked for reminders. See App. at 502–03. 43. Do you admit or deny that you gave false and misleading testi

mony under oath in your deposition in the case of Jones v. Clinton when you responded "once or twice” to the question

“has Monica Lewinsky every given you any gifts?” Response to Request No. 43

My testimony was not false and misleading. As I have testified previously, I give and receive numerous gifts. Before my January 17, 1998, deposition, I had not focused on the precise number of gifts Ms. Lewinsky had given me. App. at 495–98. My deposition testimony made clear that Ms. Lewinsky had given me gifts; at the deposition, I recalled “a book or two” and a tie. Dep. at 77. At the time, those were the gifts I recalled. I response to OIC inquiries, after I had had a chance to search my memory and refresh my recollection, I was able to be more responsive. However, as may counsel have informed the OIC, in light of the very large number of gifts I receive, there might still be gifts from Ms. Lewinsky that I have not identified. 44. Do you admit or deny that on January 17, 1998, at or about

5:38 p.m., after the conclusion of your deposition in the case of

Jones v. Clinton, you telephoned Vernon Jordan at his home? Response to Request No. 44

I speak to Mr. Jordan frequently, so I cannot remember specific times and dates. According to White House records included in the
