This is the full text of President Bill Clinton’s deposition in the Paul Jones sexual harassment lauwsuit.

Clinton made the deposition on Saturday, January 17, 1998. It was made public on March 13, 1998 by Jones’s lawyers, as part of their response to the Clinton legal team’s motion to have the case thrown out.
