House prosecutors interviewed Monica Lewinsky yesterday in a Washington hotel as part of a last-ditch effort to persuade the Senate to call witnesses at President Clinton’s trial. While they emerged from the encounter saying that Lewinsky could add valuable testimony to the trial, her lawyer joined Democrats in insisting that after 22 appearances before the grand jury, the special prosecutor and others, Lewinsky had nothing new to add to the case against the president.

Guests:

  • Mary Dejevsky, Washington Correspondent for the Independent of London.
  • Paulo Sotero, Washington Correspondent for O Estado de Sao Paulo.
  • Dapo Olorunwymoi, reporter for Tempo and The News in Nigeria.
